pictures don't always speak a thousand words

Haley woke me up at 3:30 am with a poopy diaper

potty training sucks

but it gave me an opportunity to blog before I head off to work at 5:50 am

also, I'm taking a nap today


 she loves picking blueberries

she loves eating blueberries

we all love movies in the park


she loves heels, like a lot

Haley turned 3, and grandparents treated us to Disneyland for her birthday

we talked with Mulan

and ate breakfast with Goofy


we finally crossed Seattle off our Northwest Bucket list


September was a big deal

I cried a lot

and she's the most beautiful Kindergartner I ever saw


this handsome man turned 30-something

it was a good day

I got these boots at a clothing swap

they have changed my life

p.s. every church needs to have a clothing swap

I love this man, and I'm so thankful to be on this adventure with him

we scored tickets to Disney on Ice

It was a blast!

p.s. I paid $5 for that Mulan dress at Goodwill

I love Goodwill


this kid turned 6

and has a loose tooth

and accepted Jesus

Its been a great time of celebrating!

However, these pictures don't always speak a thousand words

the truth is, this last year has been filled with many tears

many doubts

much humbling

and quite a bit of discouragement

which is why I am so thankful that God is faithful, even though we are not

Our future home is still very much a question mark...for us

but not for the Lord, which is what we attempt to remind ourselves daily

but I still get very scared

we need prayer...lots of it

That's all I'll say about it for now, because its 6:00 am and I'm at work now

P.s. Daylight saving is my friend

God is so sweet and merciful

And I am so undeserving of His grace

Truth for the ages
