I enjoy this little girl so much. She is such a precious and special addition to our family. She is always full of joy and loves to serve (it's pretty amazing). I just wanted to share a few pics of my two little ones. The one above is of me flat ironing her hair. She loves it, she says it makes her hair long like mine. And, let me tell you, she is girly just like her mommy and Hudson is as much of a boy as his daddy is. All he wants to do is hunt, play in dirt, roar like a dinosaur, and wrestle (fight, fight, fight). It's amazing how different they are, but so funny how similar they are to me and Todd. She looks just like Todd, but acts just like me. Hudson looks just like me, but acts just like Todd. Funny Huh!

This is just something to think about. For the redeemed, this is the only hell we will experience, but for the lost- this is the only heaven they will experience. People let's share our faith and the hope we have with those around us that don't have it.

Been a while

It's been a while since I've blogged, so I thought if I changed my background maybe I would be encouraged to blog a little. So I thought I'ld start by sharing some pictures of us this summer. We have had a busy and fun summer. My mom was here for 6 months. She rented an apartment while she had her home on the coast for sale. Anyway, it sold and she's back home. We miss her terribly!

16 random things about ME

I was tagged a few weeks ago now by my dear friend Allison Stephens, who by the way I MISS SOOOOOO much.
Okay so here goes, I may get 16 maybe a little less, but I'm trying. I'm really not that interesting of a person.

1. I am an only child and I love it.

2. I am also the only child that I knew growing up that could have a coke with my breakfast.

3. When I was younger, I ate a pickle every night before I went to bed. And I wonder now why I have a problem eating healthy.

4. I sleep under 4 blankets at night.

5. I love snuggling with my children, kissing their sweet faces, holding and looking at them. I really think I could do it all night. I love it!

6. I have worn two different shoes in public more than once.

7. I broke my tailbone on a slide in Germany.

8. I broke a bone in my foot whild in Spain. (I think I need to quit traveling out of the country)

9. Those were the only two bones I've ever broken.

10. I think these past three years have been the most difficult in terms of making and developing good friendships. I have begun to wonder at times if it's my stage of life or if it's really something about me. I would say me, but then I think of all the good friends I've made prior to living here and I have great, good and lasting friendships.

11. I have a cup of coffee every morning when I wake up.

12. I shot a bird when hunting with my husband once and started to cry. Let's say I've never been hunting again.

13. I hate exercise, but I love to jazzercise. It's the only workout I've every really enjoyed doing. I recommend it to any of you that hate the gym.

14. I am not crafty, but try my hardest to be. I am such a copycat when it comes to making things.

15. My best friend today is my best friend from when I was 4 months old, that's when she was born. I guess you could say we're like sisters. We're the only sister each of us has ever known.

16. I am not an organized person, but really want to be. I really think it's something that you're born with or not. Is there any of you that would disagree with me? Because if you do, I would love to know how to work toward being an organized person or if you have tips.

Okay, so now I'm done and I now tag Paula Cibula, Kim Cobb, and Amanda Skinner, if you guys haven't already done this.
