In Your unfailing love You will lead the people You have redeemed. In Your strength You will guide them to Your holy dwelling. Exodus 15:13

Nope I'm not pregnant! :)

Just passing the time on a Friday night. The ladies went to bed at 6:30p due to lack of sleep all week (thank you snot, coughing and tummy bugs) and lack of naps at school today (thank you sweet teachers for trying despite the attitudes of my children).

I've been searching through part time jobs to keep my feet wet in education, asking the Lord to guide my thoughts and fingers. He has shown me how much I love teaching children older than my own kids (though I really thought I hated it after the last five years of doing in ALL the time). Who knows what my Maker has up His sleeve for us? I am just keeping my heart open to the possibilities of using me for more than I am doing now.

I've been reading two books that have my mind in deep thoughts. If you know me at all, you know that I despise reading anything more than a magazine article or blog snippet. Well, these two books have taken me by storm. The Power of Prayer to Change Your Marriage by S. Omartian (l.o.v.e. her) and Authentic Faith by Gary Thomas (knock you off your high horse good!)

Krystal loves Jared. Just sayin :)

Not really too thrilled about TV right now. A lot is on but not much is going on. Still I am hooked :(

I cut Klaire's bangs, giving up on the side sweep for now :) At least she can see when to duck now.

Oh yeah, I cut me some bangs too. Haven't figured out how to style them yet so it's been a headband/scarf kinda week.

Karoline has discovered something that is two fold. A blood curdling scream when I barely pop her in Target=a extremely embarrassed mom that is no longer afraid to drop the cart and head out of the store :)

Question for the moment...Is it the year to give in the tankini or can I get by with one more year in the ever so forgiving bikini?

J is headed home from a conference he is teaching at this weekend so I'm gonna go and ready the house. Aren't I a good wife? :)

There is an even cuter picture and write up in Real Simple magazine this month!

BBB Wedding

We had a blast at Brigette and Brandon's Wedding! Here are some other random shots I gathered. I still haven't gotten any of mine to load so....maybe I can get those later. Enjoy!

Still alive. We are still out of power from the snow but staying warm in Denton. I have TONS of pics to post soon.
