As I sit here and reflect on my life for the past 30 years, I think about all the good times and the bad times. 
There have been many.  I have felt joyful, alone, angry, rejected, complete, and all the adjectives in between. 
I look at the expectations for the next 30 years and I start to ponder the things I want to accomplish. 
My list does not necessarily look like everyone else’s but it is my list and I can not wait to start tackling all that God has in store for me.


  1. Start nursing school
  2. Learn more patience and grace with my family, friends, and those who are undeserving.
  3. Read the Bible from beginning to end.
  4. Memorize all the Proverbs.
  5. Support my husband and encourage him more daily.
  6. Push out of my comfort zone more often and become fearless.
  7. Learn how to shoot and to fish.
  8. Earn the respect and forgiveness of those that I have wronged or hurt.
  9. Grow my relationship with Christ from the small seedling it has become to one that is deserving of a woman of the King.
  10. Continue to eliminate the negativity in my mind, my heart, and my life.


This is not the end of my list but it is what I am working for now.
I hope this encourages everyone to do the same.

What is on your list?

Well that's interesting...

Hello Family and Friends!

For those of you who are not on Facebook, in December we found out that we are yet again...

Having another baby. This was the first Ultrasound at 11 weeks 5 days (January 31st).
I'm currently 17 weeks tomorrow (wednesday the 9th of march). We were not trying to get pregnant at all, in fact we were actively trying to NOT get pregnant but God decided that this little bug was someone we needed desperately in our lives. We have another Ultrasound on the 14th of March and hope to find out the sex then.

here is the most recent picture of the baby bump 2011....

Hope everyones New Year is going well. :-) Love from us 4... Cameron, Amy, Matthew and Baby Bug.

Pumpkin Patch

Me, Cameron, and Matthew went to the Pumpkin Patch down the street from our house the other day. Matthew was sooo excited about all the pumpkins that were Matthew sized. He picked up like 50 million different pumpkins. Finally, Daddy picked out one that was just right for him. There was a "tractor train" that pulled Matthew around. He wasn't into the bouncy houses they had there, but he did enjoy the petting zoo. He actually petted one of the pets!! He loved the ducks and kept saying onk onk to the Pigs. Its so adorable. Later, we went to a friends house and we carved pumpkins. Matthew had a really fun time. :-)

Matthew's Birthday Part 2!

Telling Mama he is 2!

He was very excited to see the Elmo cake.

Friday My little Man turned 2 years old. I still can not believe it has been 2 years since I gave birth to my little Monkey. He has been a joy, a learning experience on how strong I am, and one of the greatest gifts God has ever given to me. We celebrated it on Saturday by taking him to Chuck E. Cheese. We got there and he was not to fond of the moving machine people on the stage, right next to the booth we were sitting at. He was tightly clutched onto me or Cameron the whole time. Poor guy! Eventually he warmed up to them and even danced near the stage no problem. He wouldn't let Chuck E. Cheese come up to him though. He was not ready for a "live" moving thing. Guess that means Disneyland and Mickey Mouse is out. ;-) He had like 5 pieces of pizza [his favorite food ever] and some good yummy Elmo cake. Cameron did a really good job in constructing the cake, while I did the decorating [aka frosting]. Aunt Renee, Jerry, and his two daughters, Jessica and Jennifer came to celebrate as well.
