Here we go!

Hi Y'all!

It has been a really long time since I've written a post on this family blog of ours. 3 years, actually.

Our lives have been down right crazy!
Let's just say there has been some MAJOR upsets and times when we thought we might not make it. But we survived and we are solid and a very happy family.

It's amazing how many blessings God has in store for us if we endure our trials and keep faith in His eternal plan. A perspective which is hard to grasp, I know.

Faith is a hope for the better. It is a comfort we all need to survive life. Whether you have faith in a god or in people, or in both. You have the makings to survive challenges that come your way.

I'm thankful for the love and loyalty that has been shown me and my family. I'm grateful for the blessings that come our way every day.

I'm grateful for a husband who truly sees me and accepts me for all my crazy. We've been through and seen so much together. He's my most valued friend and companion. If I had to go through out my life without him, I probably could. But I'm glad I don't want to or have to. :)

I'm grateful for a son that is kind, giving, forgiving and loyal. He brightens my days and the thought of seeing him again tomorrow warms my nights.

I'm oh so grateful for the other son that is soon to come. My Baby Boy Bundle of Joy, I like to call him. He's been long awaited and faithfully prayed for. After 6 years of losing hope and gaining it back again over and over, I can't wait to meet him. We all can't wait to meet him.

Life is a funny thing, isn't it? Well, maybe not funny, per say...All the time, anyway. But it is challenging in ways we never see coming. We wake up every day hopeful, or maybe not so hopeful of what is to come, and yet we survive it.

Our hardships are not over but we have love and family and friends to help us through. We have faith and hope to keep us going.

Yes, I know this post is sappy and emotional. But guess what? I'm pregnant! Goes with the territory! So deal! I'm sappy and emotional! I'm grateful and giddy!

And if you know me well enough...You love me for it! ;)

As Promised

Remember I said that the Munchkin was very good and taking random things and making something really cool? Well here you go...

This very cool Rocket Ship is made of a paper towel roll. Paper. Tape and Glue. He flies it around over the towns he builds with his blocks and hot wheels cars.

I couldn't get him to smile normal for any of these pictures. He was more interested in Tom and Jerry. But hey! A picture is a picture.
We love how creative he is and what a vibrant imagination he has.

Current Events

Just a little note to let everyone know that we aren't dead! We are still alive! Yeah!

Munchkin has started up spring soccer again and he's more aggressive with the ball. He's now really good at getting to the ball and getting it to change directions. Although he didn't score any goals this first spring game he had plenty of assists, or so I hear. Unfortunatly we've had a lot of sickness going around. I had to stay home and didn't get to see the game myself. But like I said, I heard it was really good.

Our Munchkin has also enjoyed doing his own crafts. He's excellent and making something out of paper, glue and tape. This kid can make just about anything if he has a pair of scissors. Pictures to come later. He made a rocket ship that's super cool. I'm constantly vacuuming paper scraps off the floor and putting away the scissors and glue. He always has it out and is always working on something new.

Mr. Man is in school and keeping busy as always. I wish I had something new to say about that but school is school and while your in it there isn't anything else.

I'm keeping busy enough. The same ol' same ol' for me too. Munchkin keeps us pretty on our toes and we like to think we do a good job at keeping up with him.

Mr. Man is in the process of finding a job and we are making plans to move this summer. We are keeping our eyes and ears open for an apartment to move to. It's been a trying time for our family to accept making this adjustment, but we know the Lord will provide a way for us and everything will work out just fine.

I hope this quick update will be enough to let you know what's up with us. In spite of the curve balls in life we are doing just fine and we love and miss you all.
Thanks for reading!

P.S. Happy Birthday to me!
