Tomorrow is the big day!  I'm pretty excited to get into our house & have a place of our own.  When Tony & I moved in together it was in my townhouse that I bought in South Carolina, & here it's military housing so this is *technically* our first home together.  I'm really looking forward to being able to decorate & make it our own.

I'm a little nervous about how Cody will do in the new house.  I know Sawyer won't know the difference since he's not that old, but I know Cody will probably be a little weirded out by it.  I'm crossing my fingers that he'll adjust quickly & sleep well.

I'm in love with the whole country home decor, so it will be fun to paint the walls & turn it into something we'll love.  I really can't wait! :)

We'll be without Internet for a few days, so this will be my last post until then.

Adios, amigos!

In my journey to know Jesus for the last year, I've failed to keep up (well, really I've failed to even start) reading the bible.

Yesterday I made a vow to change that. I started with the Gospel of Mark, as it chronicles what Jesus was doing up to his death. I also bought a journal to write down scriptures that jump out at me and also to keep a prayer journal.

I read the majority of Mark last night, and it was awesome. When I went to bed, I felt at peace. I'm thankful to be able to do it, and I really hope I can continue to be motivated.

Tonight I'll finish Mark and then tomorrow I will move on to Matthew. As for today, I have some serious packing to do. We're moving in 4 days to our new house!

Christmas Eve.

What a beautiful moment. Knowing that 2000-some years ago, a child was born that would save us all. It's only this year that I'm starting to understand the awesomeness of it all.

Tony tripped out this morning. He'll be gone through Christmas, so yesterday morning we let Cody demolish all of his gifts. He had a blast ripping through the paper & looking at everything. When he'd open a package that contained clothes, he'd hand them to me & move on. It was so cute & so like a little boy.

Tomorrow, we will be going to the MAF (Missile Alert Facility) to have Christmas dinner with Tony. It's not ideal, but at least we will be together as a family for a few short hours.

Last night at church was beautiful. The band did a version of 'Little Drummer Boy' that blew me away, & I had goosebumps to prove it. Knowing what God did for us and how it changed everything amazes me. To do something so selfless & wonderful tells me that there's good in the world.

Whenever I think about how crappy things can get, I hope that I can learn to reflect & realize that I am so truly blessed, because the Father has given me all I'll ever need.

Merry Christmas, everyone. I hope you have a beautiful day & season- and know that Jesus is with you.

This morning at church, I was SO moved by the word. I heard exactly what I needed to hear and it was a huge kick in the pants to get me moving.

I can't even begin to express how thankful I am to have found Element Church. God, you are SO GOOD!

don't ask, don't tell.

I'm not even remotely torn on the issue, even though I know what the bible says and I'm trying so hard to follow the path of God.

I'm SO GLAD it was repealed, and I'm so thankful that homosexuals will no longer have to hide their preferences.

I have friends who got out because they weren't able to be themselves, and I think it's so unfair. I'm so glad people will be able to serve their country, regardless of their sexual beliefs.

Even a conservative like me is happy about it.

my boys.

I complain a lot about what a pain in the rear Cody is and how frustrating it is that Sawyer CONSTANTLY wants to be held.

But as I was driving home today from Sawyer's 2 month appointment with the pedi, I realized how much my life has changed in the last 3 years and how amazing it is. Even on hard days, I wouldn't trade my life for anything. Cody & Sawyer are the light of my life. I can't even begin to imagine my life without them and I am SO thankful that God chose to bless me with two boys who are so amazing.

No matter how much Cody misbehaves, no matter how much Sawyer cries, I know that no one will ever love these children more than Tony & I possibly could.

The days of Cody being a baby are long gone, and Sawyer's are already limited- time flies so inexplicably fast and I can't imagine how much more amazing they will become, even though I know it's truly possible through God's great work.

I'm so thankful he chose me to be the mother to them.

as Sawyer sits in his vibrating chair...

He's got this look on his face. It's turning a little red & for a moment I get nervous, because his weird breathing that we STILL haven't gotten to the bottom of freaks me out.

Then he grunts, and I hear this disgusting noise. And another grunt & noise. Yikes.

Not looking forward to changing THAT diaper.

Happy Saturday!

I have never in my life...

been SO SICK of two dogs. Everytime I turn around I'm having to vacuum the floor, sweep the floor, pick dog hair off toys and furniture, wipe drool off my leg, get Cody out of water & food bowls, yell at one of them for barking, yell at the other for whining and scratching the screen door, etc. I seriously HATE them.

I've already vacuumed & swept twice today. I found a piece of effing dog hair on our deli cheese when I was making Cody a sandwhich for lunch. I hate they way they sit at the foot of Cody's highchair begging for food & how he eats WAY less than he would normally because he likes giving them his food. I hate how we just got our new living room furniture last year and they've already scratched it with their talons.

I hate how Hot Lips comes into our bedroom AT LEAST twice a night wanting to go outside. Like I don't get up often enough with Sawyer in the middle of the night. I hate how they whine constantly when Tony walks outside for 30 seconds.

I would give just about anything to get rid of them right now.
