One Adorable Rooster....

Just look at that handsome rooster!  Is he NOT the cutest, most adorable rooster you've ever seen?!

I have no idea why but my sweet boy decided 3 days ago that he wanted to be a rooster.  He has been wearing this outfit pretty much all day. We had to make a quick run to the store one day and we kept getting comments about the "chick that escaped the pen"or "I see you have 4 kids and a chicken" LOL! Oh and just ask him to tell you what a rooster says and it is beyond ADORABLE! :)
That's right, I'm the proud momma of 6 kids and the most adorable little rooster you ever laid eyes on. :)

My sweet baby...

Yesterday was Nolan Elijah's 5th "Gotcha Day"! Such a wonder that it's been that long. I can still remember all the drama that led up to his homecoming. So very thankful God chose this priceless treasure for our family!!



We had big plans for the day....visit the local park...then the library...and then picnic in our yard for lunch. However, they were all cut short quickly by Samuel waking up with a fever and the inside of his nose very swollen. Not too long after breakfast as I was trying to work on our finicky pool (and praying for a miracle that we could swim in it this season!) Nolan was sobbing and holding his hand. After a few minutes it was ascertained that he was stung by a yellow jacket or a hornet. I have no idea how many times but within minutes his finger was huge! Then his sweet little hand followed looking like the skin was going to burst it was soooo swollen. I gave him B*nadryl and watched him closely hoping we wouldn't have to head to the ER agai…

Sean...

How it all started almost 24 years ago....

and just look at us now Sean! God picked so good for me when He brought you into my life. I am so thankful, so very, very thankful that you are the father of my babes (all 7 of them!) You are a man of integrity and character, a faithful husband, and an amazing daddy (or pop as the oldest ones call you)! 
Saint Francis of Assisi is famous for the quote, "Preach the gospel always and if necessary, use words". That's you Sean. You speak your heart through your life, you love, your dedication. You are my best friend and I am so grateful to have you journey this path of life by my side. Happy, happy Father's Day!
YOU'RE THE BEST!!!

Then and Now...

Every good gift and every perfect gift  is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights,  with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning. James 1:17


Be still my heart....
I can't believe my wee lil' babe turned 5 today! 


There is so much I could say about this precious gift but I think I can sum it up in 2 words: HEAVEN-SENT!!
Rejoicing today that God chose me to be his mommy!

Struck a Chord...

Today, like most days, I find myself thinking "what did I actually accomplish today?" My to-do list is still a mile long and the day is quickly winding down and boy, am I exhausted! :) As I was reading my Bible today I came across a familiar passage but it really struck a chord in me today.....

"That same day, Jesus left the house and went to sit by the sea.  Large crowds gathered around Him,  and He got into a boat on the sea and sat there.  The crowd stood on the shore waiting for His teaching.  And so Jesus began to teach."  Matthew 13:1-3 

I love how Jesus left the house to go find some "alone time" but they (large crowds) found out, tracked him down and gathered around Him. Oh can I relate. LOL! Anytime I think I can hide  have a moment alone, someone finds me and calls the rest of the siblings with a "here she is!" :) Oye! So much for being alone. LOL!
 Then Jesus gets into a boat and sits there probably thinking maybe they'll go away but they…
