Anyone that knows me knows that one of my favorite things to do is being out in my yard working. I love yardwork, gardening, planning, and landscaping. I find great joy and peace when I am playing in the dirt and it is where I do some of my best praying. So I thought I would share parts of our yard with all of you. Just some THURSDAY THINGS.....

Can you see my little camoflage "friend"???

This is a bloom from my Bouganvilla (sp), doesn't it kind of look like a heart!!

Playing catch up with LOTS of pictures!!!

Here are some pics from one of my neice Jade's volleyball games. She is a great vball player , and I can't wait to see how much better she becomes. GO LADY BEARS!!!

Here is my baby sister Kerry with her baby Rayn. I don't know why but I just love this picture!!!

Drake and Rayn...Hugs Hugs Hugs!!!

Lily and Rayn shaggin balls during warmup....

We won't be able to see our Grandbutton Josh the NINJA on Halloween so he came to see us the other day and tried to sneak up and scare his Meme! Then his Grandpa put him on the lawn mower with him....now look REALLY close and even though you can't see the NINJAS face , who do you think is having the most fun??????

"Siblings"....Christopher and Astrud, I love the love they have for each other! The best moments of my life are when my kids are loving each other and laughing, it makes my heart smile BIG!!! How Great is our GOD!!!

There's that "teenager" look!! You know the one....but you just gotta love her!

Their "serious" pose!

Astrud told me, PUT THAT ON YOUR BLOG MOM, so people can see me slaving around the house, so here it is!!! Do any of you with teenagers out there feel sorry for her!!! I didn't think so....lol!!!!

I know there is no lipstick and YES that is my gown, but I love taking pictures with my girl!

I just thought I would show you a picture of me and my new best friend!!

Years and years ago my sister , Astruds, Aunt Kim gave this Ty stuffed animal named Sherbet,and she has slept with it ever since. Everyone friends and family alike know who "Sherbet" is . WELL....the other day I saw our little Gretchyn run out of the bedroom and when I looked this is what I saw....Astrud stuck Sherbet in Gretchyn's collar....and um....she hated it!!!

Rayn fell asleep in the recliner late friday night and Astrud walked over and just picked her up to hold her while she was sleeping....sooooo sweet, I just cant wait to see her with HER little sister!

Saturday morning Astrud and I were having our morning coffee and just enjoying the beautiful weather and when we looked out the back door this is what we saw....God is so good.

I know this was a long post but we are so blessed and I just want to share it all with you!

Happy are those people whose God is the LORD!!!!

Not much to say.....

Those of you who know me are probably laughing right now reading that title......I am rarely ever at a point when I have very little say but there is alot of soccer, hockey, football and volleyball going on right now that we have been so busy that I have not had a whole lot of time to blog, but this too shall pass. I am also just a little worn down by this "WAIT", and I would imagine that is the biggest reason for my silence right now...the closer you get the harder the wait gets !!

Astrud, Jena and Emily served at a wedding of some friends of ours this weekend , so that was a reason for a shopping trip!!! They were asked to wear black and white so I thought that I would post a few pictures of them. They are all 3 such pretty girls if I don't say so myself. Enjoy the pics and have a very BLESSED week.

Love and blessings, Kristy

Something Random.....

The other night as my husband is sitting watching the game on T.V., I was cleaning up a little in the house and to be quite honest , I had just HAD IT with my vacuum, so I picked it up walked thru the living room , opened the door to the garage and threw the entire vacuum out the back door!!! And oh boy did it feel good, call it build up with this WAIT, call it what you may but even though that vacuums days had been numbered for quite some time, it felt so good to just end it's LIFE!!! I then walked right back thru the living room not saying a word and went straight back into the bedroom to finish cleaning. So I know you must be thinking the same thing my husband was.....he never said anything, but I know he was thinking OK ....she has completely lost her mind now!!! So last night we were headed out the door for "Field of Faith" and when I opened that same door , there it stood, it was a beautiful sight for sore eyes, it is the new love of my life, it was standing there in all its glory... THE DYSON DC14 TELESCOPE!!!! My wonderful husband went to my favorite story Home Depot and bought this for me, and I love it!!! Don't sit still at my house because you might get vacuumed!!! Now between you and me, I think he probably did it for his and Astrud's sanity, but that works for me!!! My neice Lily asked me this morning, "Meme did you sleep with you new vacuum"? Well....if it would have fit in bed, I would have!!!

It was my best friend Jessica's birthday too!!! Happy Birthday , you are beautiful and I am forever grateful for God putting you in my life. I love you.

Still not all the way thru March 2006.....

The cutoff date today was March 28, 2006. So we are not yet done with March, BUT we are almost there. So I can look at it two ways: 1. I can be all bummed and sad and let this ruin my day or week. OR 2. I can look at it as 4 more days closer to our girl!!! I think I choose #2!!

Then Kelli a fellow waiting Mom reminded me of this song by Kutless ,"What Faith can do".
Turn the music off at the bottom and listen, it will lift your spirits.

While all of us are sitting here glued to our computers waiting for the CC** to send out their way overdue Referrals here is a little "FRIDAY FUN" for you!!! It is in addition to my post about Breast Cancer Awareness Month!! Have a blessed weekend!!!

Fingers crossed and many many PRAYERS....

I made the decision over a year ago that I was going to take the bedding off of Franceskas crib, put it in a bag and not bring it out again until the CC** is in April 2006. So my fingers are crossed very tightly and my prayers are many. My prayers are that when they get back from this holiday they will finish March 2006. And then I will get Franceskas room all set up again and I will post pictures. I think it is really pretty and I want to share it with all of you again. So please pray that the CC**, puts smiles on our faces soon......

Reminder......and a prayer request....

Just like it says, October is Breast Awareness Month, remind your friends to self examine and ask them to tell a friend......We can do this....let's scare Breast Cancer away!!!!! Let's find it before it gets us, or someone we love!!!


My friends Jacy and Jenette's 18 yr old cousin BROOKE has been diagnosed with uterine/ovarian cancer. Her tumor is the size of a 5 month fetus. She just graduated from high school, she is a girl of tremendous faith and is probably braver than anyone in her family right now, please pray for her, her family and her team of physicians. Thank you all so much and God bless each of you.


Just in case you did not know ...this goes on sale today!!!

Oh How He Loves Us...Kim Walker


I get asked what seems 100 times a day how we can wait so long for our babygirl. I have one answer for that.....Because of HOW HE LOVES US!!!

This is Kim Walker , and I know this video is long. But please give it the 8 minutes that it is because it will touch your soul. The Holy Spirit and this song sets me on fire for my Creator and all that he does for me , and the way it touches the hearts of our youth at church is incredible!!!

I hope it touches each of you.. This is how I get thru each day of this wait for our girl, no heartache, no financial, or personal problem, not Alzhiemers disease, NOTHING that ever makes me mad or sad is ever bigger than the POWER behind me!!!!
