lemonade or orange juice – you decide

with one comment

They say when life hands you lemons – make lemonade. I’m not crazy about lemonade – so I get handed oranges.

Most of you know that God blessed us with a beautiful daughter 12 years ago. We were unable to have any more due to complications. I used to want another one so badly – but lately – I’ve been tasting the orange juice. 6 glasses to be exact. They are in the form of nieces and nephews. I actually have 9 nieces and nephews – but 3 of them are grown up and we don’t see them much. The other five however are still very young. And so much fun.

This is Adam.

From Serenity is my Life

Adam is about 6 months old and is a riot. He just celebrated his first Christmas and learned the art of ripping paper and eating it.

Next is Audrey.

From Serenity is my Life

Audrey is just 6 weeks old and it’s hard to see her personality yet. But she is a joy to hold and cuddle with. We can’t wait to see how she develops.

Which leads me to Tasha.

From Serenity is my Life

Tasha just turned a year old and is Audrey’s sister. She loves yogurt and sloppy kisses. She is a big goof ball and never fails to make me laugh.

Emily, Spencer, and Jaycob round out my list. Emily is my brother’s youngest. She is such a joy. She is a little lady and loves to play dress up.

From Serenity is my Life

Jaycob and Spencer are also my brother’s kids.

This is Spencer.

From Serenity is my Life

Jaycob won’t let me take his picture – so I don’t have one to share:) After all – he’s 12 and WAAAAAYYYY to cool for pictures! Jaycob and Spencer are all boy and have taught their little sister everything they know about bugs and farting. I also have Benji, Bryant and Kelsi. They are too old for me to drool over.

Here’s Jaycob – his mom caught him mesmerized with his MP3 player. Way to go mom!

I consider my nieces and nephews my orange juice. They are God’s gift to me. They are God’s gift period. I love them all so much. And the best part is – I get to spoil them and give them back to their loving parents.

Happy New Year!

leave a comment »

Well hello everyone! My blog still exists – I just haven’t had much to say.

I am really excited about 2009 as this is the year we go to Germany! We leave July 31 and will be in Germany for 3 weeks. While we are there we will get to see some really awesome sites around Europe – and spend time with our Judith and her family!

2009 is also the year that Ashley becomes a teenager. Yikes! Teenager in the house!

Our New Year’s resolution is to do family devotions 3 to 4 nights per week this year. Ashley is in charge of tonight’s devotion. That should be fun! I’m excited to spend the quality time with my family and learn more about God and His plan for our life!

So happy 2009 everyone! Pray for our country’s leadership and the economy – 2009 could prove to be a very challenging year without getting God in the middle of our lives!

God Bless!

Just not much to say

leave a comment »

Hi everyone – guess I’ve been slacking a bit in the blogging arena. There just hasn’t been much going on – or maybe there’s been too much going on.

Ashley is twelve going on 23, mom is retired, Fall is here, and The Office is still the funniest show on TV.

One exciting note is that our flight to Germany is booked! July 29 to August 21. The next step is getting our passports. I cannot wait to get out of Montpelier and see a completely different part of the world. That will be so awesome!

Well – sorry about the boring post – but if all of them were exciting – THAT would be boring!

12 going on????????

with one comment

Thursday was Ashley’s birthday….the day that 12 years ago her angels were watching over her. The day that 12 years ago – she became OUR angel. We knew when her life was sustained that day that God had a special plan for her life; and watching her life unfold has been everything but boring to say the least.

The coolest thing about Ashley is that she is not afraid to be who she is – to express herself the way SHE wants to; and to let the Lord go with her. I believe Ashley is going to be a God-fearing women. But for now – I am enjoying the few days I have left that she is still a girl. A beautiful, compassionate, smart, crazy, respectable girl.

Enjoy the pics of Ashley on her birthday sporting her fave look and hanging out with her friend Sydney. You’ll also notice her playing with something – that’s a ZEN. It’s OK – I had to Google it too! You’ll find the pics at the bottom of this page.
