The title of this is ‘phew…’ because that is all I can think to say. The past few days have been busy, some exciting and some not-so-exciting. I will explain later in my ramblings. But first, let me say that this picture makes me the happiest today. 🙂

I have been attending a Book Club that is reading about the Proverbs 31 Woman. In the book it talks about how this woman worked late into the night and awoke early in the morning, all to serve her family well. If you’ve read this blog any length of time, you’ll know that this is my purpose in life, to serve my family well. But this has been my plight lately. IF I wake up before dawn and get myself ready for the day, start breakfast, get ready for Macky to show up… THEN my days are awesome. ( I won’t lie, this has only happened a few times!) BUT if I stumble to the door in my PJ’s and say something (I have no idea what) to Cathy. Then take Mack and put her back to bed, secretly praying she and Scarlet won’t wake up till noon, and hop back in my warm, cozy bed. Soon wake up to one of them hitting my in the head saying ‘EAT!’ Then…. my days are just crazy from the moment I step out of bed.

I’m funny. In the midst of all of this I seem to think that the very best thing has to be being unprepared, selfish, if you will. But when the sun goes down and everything that needed to be accomplished isn’t done yet, I panic, and think ‘ Why didn’t I wake up early and prepare for all of this!?’ So there you have it, the area I am being stretched in at the moment.

Easter week was a blast. Here are the events of the week and some of my favorite pictures…

Joseph made us French Toast one morning. YUM!!

My beautiful niece had her 7th Birthday! She is growing so very fast!

Coloring Easter eggs at two in the morning. Just some good music, my sweet hubby, and dye everywhere!!

Easter egg hunt at our house! I love my family!

Once again, my camera was lost. Therefore, these pictures were stolen from Micah’s batch. He always makes his microscopic. Sorry. 😦

Two of my very favorite people holding Scarlet Rayne:



A Day of Rest! Or so we thought…

After a fun-filled weekend… we thought the above pictures would be what our day would be filled with. Instead we ended up rushing off to the doggy doctor because Bearon has a really bad stomach virus. I have been feeding him and forcing water down his throat all day. He is super anemic and dehydrated at the moment.

Again, isn’t it funny how you think your day will be one way and then in two seconds of seeing your dog pee blood it turns into a day of a whole other kind.

  1. Wow, I know that feeling all too well – things going crazy when you think they’re just slowing down!
    I love your pictures by the way – you always have the best! And I hope Bearon starts feeling better.
    If it makes you feel any better, I could tell you the story about our cat having a urinary tract infection & stinking up the whole house right after Matthew had surgery…haha, but somehow I think that story is better kept for another day 🙂

  2. Apparently you should be reading “Having A Mary Heart In A Martha World”… it challenges you to deal with the “must do’s” of life. I’ll be sure to pass it along when I’m done & you can let me borrow “Beautiful In God’s Eyes”.

    No matter how the day ends… it’s amazing to settle down to the fact that God’s blessings are all around us. So much love, so much grace, & the opportuniy to learn from day & start fresh tomorrow!

  3. no, i think the story about venus and her… luck is appropriate.
    your family is amazing. it’s great to see how 2 people become 1 and then they are suddenly a family.

  4. Easter was GREAT! I gotta tell you that was probably the best EASTER I have had in a very long time. I love your family SO much and it’s always great when we all get together. Next year Saclett will be running around with the rest of the kids :)!! Love YA
