Friday isn't that big of a deal for me, since it's just another day, however it does mean that I don't have to get up early tomorrow so that is definitely something to look forward to! I jacked Eric's computer while he's gone to get Ali from school. My computer is currently out of order, so or now I'm living on my PSP and cell phone because the dinosaur desktop just frustrates me to no end. Anyhow
We got what I believe to be our last snow Wednesday night. We only got a dusting and it was all gone by noon, but it was nice all the same. They've been forecasting warm weather (you know, 60'sish) for the next week, so I sadly hung my coat in my closet last night, only to wake to 24 degree weather this morning. So much for spring. Not that I'm complaining! Winter is my favorite month, I just wish I'd have gone outside before I dressed Ali for school today. Sigh, oh well. She didn't complain and she just looked so cute! I'm biased though :)
Being the hip hoppin 20 somethin' that I am, we're totally planning on partying hard this fine Friday night. bwahaha. We'll be taking the kids to dinner to celebrate Valentine's Day together because Eric will have to work on Monday. Eric and I started dating 9 years ago on Vday, and got engaged 8 years ago on Vday. It's a pretty special day for us, and this year we've decided to take the kids with us to celebrate since they're such a great result of the last nine years. That and, you know, we don't have a babysitter :D Oh well.
Okay so I've rambled enough. Maybe someday I'll get back into the hang of actually having something worth reading to say. I guess I could start uploading cute pictures of my kids to go with my posts, but they're never around for me to take pics when I'm blogging, so you'll just have to tolerate my ramblings :)
Hey since it's our Vday celebration I'll post a pic of the happy couple. :) That'll work.
I'm a wife. I'm a mom. I'm a photographer. I'm a lover of Jesus. My house is a mess, my kids are dirty, we eat take out more often than not. My life is loud, busy and crazy. And that's okay with me.
This is Eric, the man you've been praying for. He's a paramedic. He quilts in his spare time. No, I couldn't make that up :) He has NASH (a form of liver disease, non-alcoholic) and diabetes, but those things don't define him. He's a man of God, an insanely wonderful husband, and the best daddy in the world.. Just ask these guys..
Our daughter Ali, she's 9. She's fiercely opinionated and strong willed. She's a Daddy's girl, but the umbilical cord hasn't but cut from me, either. She's a gymnast, and proud of it. She spends more time upside down or turning flips than she does walking. She's crazy smart, and absolutely sure of it. She is my insufferable little know it all.
Our son Dylan, 7. We lovingly refer to him as Chubs. Or Chubby. Or fat boy. Ahem. He is all boy, as you can see by his crazy wild energy. He has the highest pain tolerance of any child I have ever met. He plays soccer and does gymnastics, but truly he is a gamer, a nerd. He is an avid reader and loves to climb. Not to be outdone by his sister, he's a drama king, but to him, I'm the best mommy in the world.
I'm here to use my voice. So many people can't. In a world of darkness, I just want to help God's light to shine through. I pray that my words are His, and my love is His, as well. This is my journey through the darkness. To start are the beginning of the story, click here.
