Telling My Age

This weekend is my 10 year High School Reunion! I can't wait to see everyone. Even though tons of us keep up on FB it'll be SO different to actually see everyone in person! The best part of the weekend is that my best friend from high school AND still today is coming all the way from Florida! We'll also be getting to see the other third of our trio! Should be a fun weekend! SO here are some pics from HS for all of you to laugh at with me!

Something I think Men Don't Get

This week in church our Sunday School lesson was from Beth Moore. We've been studying the Psalms of ascent. Being at the bottom of the hill waiting to get to the temple for our chance to worship and make offerings. The being at the temple and just praising God and thanking Him for getting us there safely. Well today's lesson was from Pslam 130 & 131. About the Lord being our hope. Redeeming us. Like a weaned child sitting in his mother's lap.

Mom's is there ANYTHING better than sitting down at night with a sleepy, bathed, lotioned, sweet baby. There is nothing better than that feeling. David distinctly says like a weaned child, b/c that child isn't in your lap to be fed. He's there because he KNOWS that there is comfort there. That this is where all is right in his little world. Safe and peaceful in momma's lap right before drifting off to sleep. AND how many of us mom's spend that time praying over our child, praying for him. Certainly is he's sick and not feeling well. In Judges 13 Manoah "entreats" to the Lord. Praying over and over for Samson, his unborn child. There's just something about a freshly bathed, cleaned diapered, pj's on, little baby cuddled in your lap.

All the men in our class just sort of looked at the mom's like we were a little off. But all you mom's out there....don't you just crave the days when your babies were little enough to do this?!

2 Years

This post is a few days late, BUT I did think of it then, just didn't post.

On October 2nd it has been two years since we first heard about our sweet Jeong Sol. Since that day, that phone call, he as been ours. We just knew. On the day of, I just knew that that day would be THE day. That Thursday Oct.2nd, I would be getting a phone call from Ed. I just knew. Call it a mother's intuition.

Also, on Oct. 1st it has been 1 year since finalizing Paxton's adoption.

And on Oct. 4th, we received Paxton's citizenship certificate in the mail. What an amazing two years it has been!

Last week in church we were talking about Jacob & Esau and I asked the kids who the brothers were. Jacob &....Yeehaw! HAHAHA! The other teacher and I laughed SO hard. He was completely sincere in his answer!

He's also saying funny things like, Cowabunga dude. Excuse you when HE burps. Which he also thinks is hilarious! He's started telling us love you too when you tell him you love him.

Such a sweet boy!
