In the bath...

Aspen: Mommy, there is a BIG bubble! Ow!

Me: What? Where did the bubble come from?

Aspen: From my bottom. There are lots of them.

I am NOT...

my weight,

my facebook friends,

my shoes,

my bank account,

my church,

my emotions,

my jean size,

my fertility,

my vehicle,

my wit,

my neighborhood,

my education,

my health issues,

my friends,

my hair color,

my blog comments,

my credit score,

my home decor,

my text messages,

my job,

my family,

my talents,

my failures,

In fact I am not even my own...


It's not because of who I am,

but because what of you've done.

It's not because of what I've done

But because of who you are.

And you told me who I am.

I am yours.

I am yours.

(song excerpt Casting Crowns)

Prayers for Mom: last surgery tomorrow!

Tomorrow is my Mom's last surgery in her treatment following a breast cancer diagnosis in early April 2009. She is now cancer free, and after tomorrow, she will be done with treatment for good!

Her surgery will most likely be around 7:30 am in Bend, and we would appreciate your prayers... specifically for the doctors wisdom and care, and for a complication free procedure and recovery.

Prayers for my dad and his career direction would be appreciated as well.

Thank you friends!

Aren't they cute :)
They've been married 35 years, and despite this year being a particularly rough one, they are still in love with each other, and in love with their God.

Video of Aunt Laura and Aunt Jennie finding out about baby #2

This a week and a half ago.

Aspen came out from her nap with a shirt on that said "big sister." (see post below) Laura picked her up and said kinda sarcastically "Big sister?! You're not a big sister." Then my mom said "What did you say Laura?" The filming begins right after that.

It gets a bit shaky near the end because the camera man (proud daddy) gets a little emotional. :)
