Thankful

Lately I've been reflecting on how blessed and privileged I feel to be a Mom to these two little ones. Seriously, when I'm with them I feel like the nerd who's trying to crash the cool kids' party and I am blown away by the fact that the Lord has chosen me to be their Mom. The Lord has been so kind and gracious to me, to have two little ones that are very close in age and to have it be so fun and enjoyable. Of course we have our crazy moments but those are the times when I just have to laugh and appreciate it as all part of the package. Currently, I am seeing the fruit of discipline producing obedience in Jet (even at such a young age!) and with Roxy, the novelty of hearing her begin to laugh and talk is a joy that will never wear off.

So, so, so thankful for my son and daughter and praising my sweet Father in Heaven for the precious gift of their lives.


The cool kids:) 
I mean, look, Roxy's even got the "I'm too cool" face down.


Could you just die from the sweetness?


Jet, a.k.a. "Linus." 
He has been totally digging this little blankie and will carry it around most of the day.

Jet loves to rip paper so we are working on teaching him how to "take care" of it by looking at it nicely and not tearing it apart. But today, besides crumpling it up a little, he did a very good job and resisted the temptation to rip it!


Checking out the sales...


Wondering if it's a good deal...

We're Baaack!!!

I know, I know, it seems like it's been forever since I last posted and I apologize (especially to my parents for the lack of updated photos of the kiddos). I apparently ran out of storage space so I couldn't upload photos until I paid for more room and I kept procrastinating and putting it off but now it's all taken care of and I am all set to making some grandparents very happy!

Life has been so busy (when is it not?): Matt has been juggling two jobs, Jet and Roxy are growing up so fast, ministry with church is ongoing, I've been doing Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred, and we got a house! That's right - a new house! I'll post more about that later but we don't get the key until the end of October so it will be a little while longer till we move in but we are so blown away by the Lord's kindness and provision and we praise Him for such a grand gift. 

Will try to keep the updates coming but for now, here are some snapshots:
