Thankful…

As I’m about to start cooking and cleaning like mad, I wanted to stop and think about all the beautiful things that God has blessed me with. Having a relationship with Jesus and salvation! He’s given an awesome husband who loves Him more than me! We’ve been given a daughter who’s fun and challenging as can be=-)! There are so many other things that He’s done and will continue to be do in my life that are worthy of thankfulness. I just sometimes forget to be thankful! So happy Thanksgiving! What are you most thankful for?dsc_0336cb1dsc_0383cbo1dsc_0358cb

Life without Daddy…

 It’s funny how much you don’t realize you need someone…until they’re gone that is. Zak and I don’t part much, but have done pretty well in the past. He hadn’t taken a trip without me since I was about eight months prego, that is until this week. I was up to the task of playing single parent. One thing I wasn’t expecting was a complete lack of sleep. Not from Charis mind you, but the lack of my hubby! I guess being married as long as we have does this to you. The answer to my problem (and no it’s not a good one)…grab the toddler and bring her in your bed. So instead of no sleep, I got very little (she’s a kicker). So not only was there only one parent around, but that one parent was a tired one (tired mommy=no patience). Overall, we survived and are so glad to have him back…and we’re also glad he had a great time! What I learned from this trip…is that life without him is just no fun!

My little Shirley Temple

Enough personality? I'd say so!

Last year was the first time my little one dressed up. I made her a tutu with ribbon, tulle, and sewing glue!

year was much more fun! It helps now that I can sewing without glue! Haha. This year Zak and I decided it’d be fun having her dress up like Shirley Temple! She loves watching her movies, and knows most of her songs. She couldn’t wait to dress like Shirley! For those of you that missed seeing her at the Harvest party, here’s some pics of the lovely Shirley.
