2011 in review.

So a quick recap of the year... there were many highs and a few lows, but either way we are blessed indeed.

This year:

Kyley lost a few teeth

We had a beautiful homebirth and welcomed an amazing new member to our family.

We had a DHR case filed against us for said homebirth (no I haven't blogged about this before now)

Elijah turned 3

Elijah also finally decided he wanted to be completely potty trained! .

We made the hard decision to leave our church home.

We found a new church home.

And with that brought new opportunities, and a new ministry.

Kyley started first grade!

Derek and I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary. (I love you baby!)

A pirate slayed a monster.

Kyley turned 7!

Kyley also sang her very first solo (and Derek preached his first "sermon" at our new church!)

And here were are, at the end, and we know that God is good.

Happy New Year yall!  May your 2012 be blessed beyond measure.

Have you seen the Smurf movie yet?

The kids just giggled and giggled over this clip.

I think they'd watch it many times a day if I'd let them haha

I had the opportunity to check out some sneak peeks before the movie was released thanks to Crowdtap, and the kids loved getting to play the games online!

We really enjoyed the smurf movie, and hope you guys did as well!

Here I am to Worship

My sweet girl sang her very first solo last weekend at church, and I couldn't be more proud.  So without further ado, here are the Lakewood Kids (and myself).

I am once again so pleased with the job Shutterfly did to make them the best cards they could be!

Just some sentences?

I've had many titles for this post flowing through my head tonight, but I felt it was better to just leave it at that, and write.  Forgive me for this will be mostly rambling stream of consciousness.

My heart hurts.

And you know what, I'm angry. 

I'm angry at Satan for thinking that he has control over this world. I'm angry at people because they let him. Shoot, I'll be the first to admit, I'm one of them. Sin is fun, right?  But that doesn't make it right.

Is nothing sacred anymore? Where do we draw the line on what we will allow Satan to control in our lives?

When do we say enough is enough and stand up and fight for what God has called sacred.

I'm watching marriages crumble. And it hurts.

People close to me are hurting because of footholds satan has wormed his way in and destroyed what was once called GOOD.

I see it everyday. Not just in those close to me, but all over the world.

Divorce is rampart. Just down the street from my house, you can drive down the interstate, and the billboards are like an auction on who can sell you a divorce the cheapest.

But why?

When did we decide that our spouses aren't worth fighting for?

God and Derek know best, that I'm not a perfect wife. I fail. And often I fail miserably.   Do I often wonder if all of my stupid mistakes will make him love me any less?  Sure. I'm human.  But I know better.  You know why?  Because we talk about it. We talk about what our friends are going through, and we talk about how to avoid it. We pray for each other. We vow to fight for each other.

Marriage is hard, y'all. Life is hard. We are far from having it all together.

A few months ago, Derek and I had a conversation that revolved around this issue. We expressed our fears regarding watching so many marriages around us crumble. "This is happening to people we would've never expected... what says that it won't happen to us one day?"  These are VALID concerns. It is scary to think that people we know who we SAW completely in love with one another, living in one accord, can suddenly be on the brink of disaster.  It can happen to anyone. But why?   WHY are we letting satan gain control over our families?

Why aren't we talking about this stuff with our spouse?  Why aren't we fervently praying together for the protection of our marriage?  For the SANCTITY of our marriage? I don't know about you, but I'm going to pray harder than ever for protection because satan wants to kill, steal, and destroy, and that means my marriage, my family, my friendships.

I'm going to continue to talk about the hard stuff with my husband.  And sometimes that's hard.  I'm going to admit my mistakes. I'm going to ask for forgiveness. Most of all I'm going to trust God. I'm going to pray and pray HARD. And I'm going to FIGHT.

And it doesn't end there. Talk to friends. Talk to your kids. Pray for their marriages. Pray for their families.

Satan wants us to think that we are alone in this fight, but we're NOT.   I often wonder how many of the situations I've seen unfold in the lives around me could've been avoided by some accountability.   I'll be the first to tell you, that part is HARD.  Who wants to run to someone else and talk about how they've failed?  I sure don't. But I make myself. My husband guides me to as well when I'm being stubborn and need some reminder.  And I try to be the same for him.

We need each other. We need our friends, we need our families to bind together and pray. We need accountability, and we need support.

We aren't fighting this battle alone.

9 months old


With all of the craziness that surrounds the holidays I forgot to post this, so even though I am over a week late I want to remember!


You are growing up right before my eyes, my sweet Asher!

You are a fast crawler now and you know just how to find mommy when you can't see her.

You love to play with your toys and with Kyley and Elijah.

The one thing I think you enjoy most is playing in the box of blocks or with the basket of weebles, though that may change now that Christmas has come and gone.

You still love to eat. I can't eat even a bite without you trying to steal it. You are still eating baby food but will pretty much eat anything we eat as well, even with no teeth yet!

You love your paci, and are picky still and it has to be a certain shape and size.

You are pulling up on everything and you love to stand. You got a push walker toy for Christmas (thanks Nana & Paw!) and you've even tried to walk with it and push it across the floor.  I have a feeling in a few weeks my hands are going to be REAL full!

You can wave bye bye, and clap, and say mama and dada, you are learning to say 'uh oh'. You also say bye bye on occassion. 

You are such a little joy and I cannot believe how fast you are growing up. In just a few short months you'll be celebrating your first birthday, and that seems impossible to me!  

I love you my sweet man!

My princess


This sweet little girl turns 7 today!
Where did all the time go?
Kyley is learning to read (FINALLY!) and working hard in school and I'm so proud of her. 
She loves art. She loves to draw and color, and make 'books'. She loves to make things for others.
Right now some of her favorite things are Hello Kitty, Barbies, and drawing pictures that say I love you mom or I love you dad. (I wish I had a picture of some of these to show you, I'll have to work on that)
Her favorite subject in school is penmanship.
This kid LOVES her brothers. She is such a big helper (and has even learned to balance that out some and when her help is too much) She likes to help me with Asher the most, but I think that's because Elijah is Mr. Independant and doesn't need a lot of help. She still loves to spend time with him and play with him though!
Kyley also loves to cook. She said several years ago in her K4 graduation that she wanted to be a famous chef when she grows up and if she continues on with her love of cooking and baking, I think she just might be!
She is growing up so fast, and I cannot believe how quickly these last 7 years have gone by.
Kyley Grace, I love you to the moon and back. I can't wait to see what this next year holds for you.

Happy 7th Birthday Princess!

Christmas Presents

I wrote this years ago on my myspace blog, but wanted to revisit it here.

Christmas Presents!!!

Why is it that we give presents at Christmas? 
We all know, that Christmas is a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus, and that we give "gifts" to symbolize the gifts the wise men brought to Jesus, and the gift Jesus gave to us through his birth, death and resurrection, however what is it, that we consider a gift?
James 1:17  "Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow of turning."
Our holiday season is busy- there is no doubt.  Parties, Christmas plays, family gatherings, you name it, it happens in December! But do we get so busy that we forget that our earthly gifts could never compare to the gifts that God has given us?
God has given us so many blessings in our lives.... and so many of us (myself included) tend to take them for granted! But God's Word says that EVERY good gift and EVERY perfect gift comes from above-  not just some, but EVERY!
For me in my personal life- God has given me a wonderful husband and  beautiful children to come home to, a warm Godly home that is filled with happiness and laughter, and His Spirit dwells here among us! How awesome is that gift in itself? 
You see, Christmas isn't about how much money you can spend on your loved ones, or even those you don't love so much... But it's about HOW MUCH LOVE you can show! God has given us all the ability to LOVE and that is His greatest gift to us-
John 15:13 "Greater love has no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friends"
His Word says that greater love has NO MAN than this... that he lay down his life for his friends... NO MAN...NO WOMAN... NO CHILD.... NO FATHER... NO MOTHER.... NO SISTER.... NO BROTHER.... NO AUNT.... NO UNCLE.....NO MAN!!!!
The greatest gift of love is that of laying your life down for your friend- and Jesus laid down His life, for not just me, but for every single being on this earth! How much more then should we love our brothers and sisters, friends, neighbors AND even our enemies!
So this CHRISTMAS season lavish your love upon those you are close to, and on those you are not! Don't worry about how much money you spend, how nice the gift is, and don't worry about the things you are given by others.
Instead, rejoice in the fact that we have life, and life more abundantly through Jesus Christ, first and foremost, but also that EVERY good and perfect gift comes from Him... He has given us health, family, friends, even worldly things He allows us to possess... but no matter what...they come from him- and it all boils down to one thing...

Merry Christmas!

Today I am thankful for this sweet girl & her love of music and dance. She has such a heart for dancing and praising God while doing so. I just love it!  These pictures are from her recital last week. Enjoy.

8 months old

Today I am thankful for this sweet guy, and the last 8 months.


Asher, you are a bright light in this beautiful world.

This month you have started army crawling, and just today crawled a bit the "right way"

You've learned to clap your hands, wave bye bye, and shake your head yes.

We've finally graduated full time  to size 2 diapers. You are wearing 6 month clothes and some 6-9 and an occasional 9-12 if it runs small.

You discovered balloons recently and you LOVE them.

You love to eat whatever we are eating, but you still like baby food as well.

You also learned to drink from a straw and you love your straw cups.

You are such a happy baby and you are such a joy.

Tuesday, November 15, 2011

And instead...

Boy did that fail quickly?

I have attempted to blog my "thankful" posts from my new phone. Apparently they aren't going through. OOPS.

So quick recap:

I'm thankful for a sweet little man who's learning to crawl, and for huge tubs of army men that entertain my boys for hours.

I'm thankful for a wonderful Church family and an amazing thanksgiving dinner we had this weekend.

I'm thankful for a successful surgery for my daddy last week, and that he's healing nicely. PRAISE THE LORD!

I'm thankful for my mom and how hard she works to provide for their family.

I'm thankful for silly kids who like to do silly things and make me laugh.

I'm thankful for THE WORD.

I'm thankful for a new cell phone that hopefully I can figure out how to blog from and it actually show up.

I'm thankful for my sweet girl who is so super excited about her fall dance recital tonight.

I could go on and on, but I think I'll leave it at that. 

We are spending our day getting ready for recital tonight. Kyley is stoked. I'm hoping to post pictures from that on the blog later tonight or tomorrow.

Old Navy Active Wear (Product Review)


Recently, I was afforded the opportunity to try out and review some Old Navy Active Wear thanks to Crowdtap


Ya'll this stuff is amazing.

I fell in love with it before I even left the store. 


I love the lines in it, it makes me feel like I look slimmer.

The colors are stylish, and there are a TON of options.


The material keeps you dry and cool no matter what you are doing. I really love that. I didn't feel like I was sweltering even though I was wearing a long sleeve shirt. 

A few if the features I LOVE :


The thumb holes in the sleeves.   Where have these been my entire life??? 


Small pocket on the back of the pants for a key or whatever you wish to put there I guess. It's not a big pocket so you can't put more than one thing in there really, but at least it's a place to store your car key or something of the sort while you are working out. 


There is also a slightly larger zipper pocket on the side of the shirt, which is slightly bigger than your debit/ID card so that would be a great place to put something like that if you needed it.

Overall, I just love this line.  The support it gives is great, and it makes me feel good about myself when I'm wearing it, instead of frumpy sweats.  
The compression pants are amazing. I can't explain WHY they feel so great, but they just do. The way they conform to your body and don't sag but at the same time aren't tight and showing all the "rolls", is just simply amazing.  

Overall, I just love how these give a freedom of movement without constricting and being unflattering. I Love that!  Thank you Old Navy for such a great product!

*DISCLAIMER*  These products were given to me for the purpose of review by Old Navy through Crowdtap and the Old Navy Style Council.  I was not compensated in any other form, and all opinions and thoughts in this post are my own.

well some things changed.

Originally, I had planned to write a post full of pictures and fun stuff for yesterday's post. Then life got in the way.

And I'm reminded of something beautiful.

I've already touched on this, but I feel it needs to be said again.

I am thankful for my marriage.

For one that is founded on God's grace.

I'm thankful that we work together and respect each other.

I'm thankful that life isn't full of ups and downs that we feel like we are fighting by ourselves.

I'm thankful to have him by my side.

oh how I am thankful that he just loves me. for me.    wow.

another 2 for 1

Today will be another 2 for 1 day. This time in two different posts though :)  Hopefully now that the weekend is over, I'll get myself on a good schedule for writing these things on time!

If this had been posted yesterday, it would've went something like this:

Today, I am thankful for an amazing pastor and his wife.

I am thankful for a supportive church family.

I am thankful for friends & fellowship.

I am thankful for the joy in my husband's heart when he got to "shop" for my christmas present yesterday.

God has certainly blessed our lives, and there are so many things to be thankful for!

Day 4 and 5 mixed in.

So, I tried to post last night before I went to bed. And my firefox crashed and I lost what I was working on.   I tried to post again this morning to make up for it, and I again failed. So tonight, I play catch up.

Yesterday's post would've went something like this :

Today I am thankful for surprise lunch dates with my husband, and paid time off.

I'm thankful for target clearance, and great friends.

Oh and I'm thankful for awesome food at San Marcos.

And today, there are so many more.

Today I am thankful for a relaxing day with family.

I'm thankful for great food, great company, and football that filled our evening.

I'm also thankful that football doesn't get me all worked up like it does a few of our "guests"  (that would be my mom and brother)

Friday, November 4, 2011

So what if it's after midnight.

Yall, today has been a LONG, but fun day.

Today I'm thankful for the little things. 

Like throwing caution to the wind and feeding my kids what they refer to as "hodge podge" for lunch.

Chips & Salsa, Popcorn, Chex Mix, and M&Ms, washed down with a big jug of water. We threw whatever we wanted on the plate pretty much and just enjoyed it.

Having a picnic on the back porch.

Playing in the backyard for hours.

Still playing in the backyard for hours even when it starts to rain.

The joy on my kids faces when they realized I wasn't calling them inside despite the rain and their newly healthy bodies, just recovering from colds.

Awesome friends who we got to share a meal and fellowship with tonight.

Kids who have awesome friends to play with.

And other awesome friends who are willing to wait until after bedtime to come hang out since we had other company already planned to come over.


The Word.


Late nights.

The end.

This guy.


Isn't he handsome? 

Today I am thankful for my amazing husband.

I've been known to do some STUPID stuff. And he loves me anyway.

I gained weight after having kids. And he loves me anyway.


He also likes to take pictures of himself , which typically results in shots like this. :)

His funny, quirky ways are another quality I love about him.  He always has a way of making people smile, even if it's at his own expense, and he loves every minute of it.

He takes joy in making others happy.

I am so thankful for the love and support he gives me.  His desire to be a man of God, of upright stature & righteousness is unmistakably one of my favorite qualities in him.

His role as husband isn't always easy, but he does what he has to do to provide for and protect me, and our beautiful family.

I couldn't have asked for a better person to spend my life with. My soul mate. My best friend.  

I love you Derky and I thank God everyday for YOU.

Tuesday, November 1, 2011




In honor of this fun holiday, I wanted to write a little about both this month.

Please don't be disappointed if I let you down, but I am going to try to post daily about things I'm thankful for.

Today, I'm thankful for God's grace.

I am such a no good, sinner, but He loves me for who HE created me to be, not who this world says I am.

This world tries to tell us we are no good, rotten, scoundrels, but God sees us through a different pair of glasses.

He sees us as pure, blameless, and holy.     

Let's be real, yall.

I've often thought of my self as worthless and a failure.

I don't always have my act together.

Sometimes my house is a mess and school work barely gets done.

I am horrible at sticking to routines.

I don't always have the patience my kids deserve.

I don't always joyfully submit to my husband even though I know I should.

I don't read His word enough.

I don't pray enough.

I don't prioritize things the way I often think I should.

Have you ever felt that way?

I know I can't be alone here!

But something amazing happens when God looks at us. If we have asked Jesus to be Lord of our lives, and have pleaded His blood for our sin, God sees us as holy. righteous. pure. 

Thank you Lord for your grace.

If you haven't experienced that grace in your own life, PLEASE. Contact me. I'd love to share more about it with you.

7 months.

Yikes I'm late writing this, and I actually sat down to do it the day he turned 7 months.  I put it aside because I hadn't taken a picture yet and he was grumpy that day and never got one, and here I am a week later and finally getting to it.

Asher, You are 7 months old (and one week!)

You are rolling all over the place and trying so hard to crawl.

You push yourself forward with your feet but you haven't figured out the coordination yet to get your hands and feet moving together.


You love to eat.  You will go nuts over anything we eat if we don't share with you.

Sweet potatoes and Bananas (baby food) are your favorites, which comes as no surprise since it was both Kyley and Elijah's favorites as well.


You sit up so well now, most of the day when you're not in a sling or sleeping you are sitting on the floor playing with Kyley and Elijah and you love it.


You love your cups but we're still working on getting you to drink out of them on a regular basis, though I'm in no hurry, you just like to have a drink when you eat.

You love to be outside.  Even when you are at your grumpiest, taking you outside usually makes you happy.


Kyley and Elijah are still your favorite things, you love to play with them and their toys.

You also LOVE the jumperoo. You make that thing dance and bounce and will be so happy in there for long periods of time while mommy cleans something or gets the kids lunch, etc.


Another one bites the dust.

Last night, Kyley lost her first top tooth!



She has wanted it out for a while but wouldn't pull it, even though it's been ready for a while as well.   Last night she finally decided she wanted it out, and out it came!!

Bedtime Routines

So this week we have implemented a new bed time routine.

We are the kind of family, that specific schedules typically don't work for us, because we're busy, on the go, and we're never doing the same thing at the same time from day to day.

So my kids have never had a "set" bedtime.
Nor have they had a bedtime "routine"

This has worked for us for the last 6 years, however now that my 6 year old has her own opinion about bedtime, and my 3 year old who is WAY more feisty than she ever was about going to bed, we NEEDED some structure.

So yesterday Derek and I talked through our plan for the evening and had a great idea of what we wanted bedtime to look like. 

We sat the kids down, and told them how it would happen.

8:15-8:30   Final clean up of rooms (we've now added getting dressed for bed to this time period as well)

8:30-8:45   Fun time with mommy and daddy, this could be reading a story, or playing a quick board game, etc.

8:45-9:00 Bible story, prayer requests, prayer.

9:00 sharp, kids in bed, lights out.

Fast forward to about 7:45...   Elijah falls asleep on the couch. *THIS CAN'T BODE WELL FOR OUR FIRST NIGHT OF OUR BEDTIME ROUTINE*

Then, the alarm Derek set to go off at 8:15 to alert us that it was time to start the routine (we'll eventually grow out of needing this, but right now it's necessity)  failed to go off.  So far bedtime:0  everything else: 2

So about 8:20 we realize the alarm didn't go off, and we get Kyley started on the routine. 15 min cleaning went well, followed by 15 min of playing 2 rounds of dominoes. 15 minutes of prayer/bible story and last minute convos about our day.  This went pretty smoothly for her, with a few hiccups because well, she likes to stall and she thought that this was the perfect opportunity to test the waters on what she could get away with.  Once she realized we meant business, she got in her bed and was pretty quiet.

Derek moved Elijah from the couch, still sleeping to his bed. This was great until about oh... 9:40ish.  Guess who woke up.  

In the mean time, Kyley had been good in the bed, but not asleep, so as soon as Elijah woke up she thought that meant free reign of whatever she wanted.   WRONG.  

We finally got her to sleep, but it took much much longer to get Elijah back to sleep because he thought he'd had a nap and was ready to go for a bit.

Overall, considering what went on, not a bad experience, and we were pleased.

SO, tonight, 8:15 the alarm goes off.

The kids cleaned their room, and then we played UNO for 15 minutes (3 games worth if you were wondering, and Elijah won 2!) We prayed together and talked about a Zacchaeus and about our favorite parts of the day. (I love this part!)   And we sent the kids to bed.   They did pretty well tonight, they didn't go to sleep right away but for the most part we didn't have to say anything to them. After Kyley fell asleep Elijah wanted to come out and play a little but we nipped that quickly and he is fast asleep.    Not bad for a 2nd day of a routine. I pray they get better and better at this!

And a bonus for the day.   Asher fell asleep during the game/prayer/bible time and has been asleep since their bedtime as well. SCORE:    Mommy: 3   Bedtime:0     I like that one.

New Journeys, New Beginnings.

Don't forget to join us for our fundraiser to Bring Baby Hugs Home!! Don't forget when you click on Cheryl's link to go to the party titled Baby Hugs Fundraiser and click BUY next to that!!! 

So as many of you know, Derek &  I have taken on the role of Children's Pastors at Lakewood Christian Centre.  We have been there since June and we are loving it! God is blessing the ministry and using our calling and talents to reach kids, which is our desire!   So, I thought I'd show you guys around and tell you a little bit about who we are as a ministry.  

Welcome to Lakewood Kids.   Derek and I,  with the help of a handful of volunteers,  transformed this room from solid black walls, to everything you see here.  We are so blessed by the help we had, we couldn't have done it near as quickly on our own.


It is our desire to ensure that every child knows Jesus as their personal Savior and Lord. Beyond that, we are dedicated to teaching children the truth in God’s word, what it means to live a life of worship and prayer, and how to share compassion through God’s love toward others.

We based our entire theme off of this Scripture: 
Jeremiah 24:7 
Then I will give them a heart to know Me, that I am the LORD; and they shall be My people, and I will be their God, for they shall return to Me with their whole heart.

We are so excited about what God is doing, and if you'd like to check out what is going on you can join us by clicking any of the links below. 

We would be thrilled if you'd follow us at any of those three locations and keep up with what the kids are up to!

Kyley's response was "I only hear you in my head daddy" LOL And then he turns to Krissy (Cheryl Ritter Menees) and asks the same. Krissy says "I hear you in my head too" LOL these kids crack me up.
LOL Kyley just told me Elijah was doing something he shouldn't be... so I said I guess I'm going to have to go spank his tail. Kyley turned to me and matter of factly said "He doesn't have a tail" haha she cracks me up
Elijah just went potty and as he got down I asked him to wash his hands. His reply to me was "my hands all cwean mommy, they pewfect, now i watch tv" and ran to the living room. lol
Kyley and Elijah are in the tub, Kyley said "LiLi now it's time to SWIM!" and I replied, no let's not make a mess (they like to splash water) and she replied "But we're just going to lay down, because that's how me and LiLi roll!"
listenin to Kyley and Asher laying in the window watching the rain and he's cooing and smiling at her and she's talking in baby talk back to him ♥ melt my heart ♥
I asked Elijah if he was my baby. His response was... NO Asher's me baby!
Left Asher asleep while I went outside to fix the AC that the workers broke AGAIN. Came back and Elijah was trying to shove oatmeal creme pie in Asher's mouth. yay.
