A picture is worth a thousand words.

Sometimes we need a little reminder that what we did for Allison was all worth it. Well, we got that reminder on Sunday. On the way home from church, we always ask Jared and Allison what they learned or did at church. Allison showed me the picture that she made. Look closely at the verse and then what she wrote in one of the boxes, I think you will know what I mean.
The verse is a little hard to read, it is...Philippians 4:6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Needless to say, I was crying tears of joy when I looked at her paper.
Thank you Allison for this precious gift, it will be added to our memories to cherish.

Big News!

No....we are not having a baby:-)

We are 1 step closer to joining a diaper free world. Jordan is potty training. Yesterday he had his light bulb moment( when it clicked, he knew that feeling meant something was about to happen) in Target of all places. We were school shopping for Allison when I heard these wonderful words...."mommy, I have to go pee". We raced to the front of the store, found the bathrooms, went inside, found the kiddy potty and he did his business. He was so proud of himself. He was rewarded with a bag of popcorn( which he was kind enough to share with his mommy and sister).

Everyone sing with me..........."Mommy, wow, I'm a big boy now".
Anyone have any suggestions on what to do with all the extra money we will be saving........"take a vacation", you say, what a great idea!
