Yes, I think Beth fell off the face of the earth! she came back just long enough to post 14 pictures on her blog, but then she left again! I'm not sure why she thinks just cuz she is busy means she doesnt have to remember about her friends!!!! Maybe she secretly hates us! I doubt that.

Here is one of just the kids.. Oh so cute! I love the way they have the youngest girl with her hand on her brother's shoulder! It's so darn cute. I'd say names, but I'm not about to have some weird strangers finding my nieces and nephews and stealing them. So if your some weird freak, don't even think about it.

This is my eldest brother's family! He has such cute kids! I wanted to share their cuteness with you! hopefully you enjoy it as much as I do! I love how they make him look tall by having everyone else sit down... Really his wife is about4 or 5 inches taller than him he he! Oh well, it's still an adorable picture!!!

my job....

More exciting news!!!! Today was my first day as a full time permanent employee of Steve A. McKenzie Companies!!! Yup, after 3.5 months of temp work, they decided they liked me and hired me on full time! YAY! May1st my benefits kick in (which will help with the baby!!!) I got a $1/hr raise which is about what the insurance will cost, so I wont really make any more money, but we'll have insurance! All this exciting news, new apartment, baby, job... it's great! And my sister in law just got hired on full time where she was working too! It's great! GOD IS GREAT, GOD IS AWESOME!!!!!!!! GOD IS GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

guess what?

Friday morning I found out I am going to be a mommy! Yup, pregnant belly here I come :) Morning sickness has already started, it's not fun. but that's ok. We're gonna have a baby. Before you ask, it will be due in September, and no, we have no names pickes out. :)


I titled this Hmmm cuz I really don't know why I am posting. I have no news, but I figured it has been a while since I posted so I thought I should post. That and I am bored and don't feel like doing anymore work today! Our new apartment is starting to look like an apartment, it's exciting. Once all the empty boxes get taken away (which won't be until the garbage truck comes on Friday) then the house will look good. We have stuff on the walls, and boxes unpacked. really we don't have much left to do! Just little things that need to be hung up or put on a shelf. And the floor needs to be vacuumed really bad, but our vacuum broke and we are waiting to see how much the part is going to cost we might buy a new vacuum. That will be exciting we've never bought a vacuum before. We've never owned a new vacuum either. The one we have now is one my mom left with us when she got married and moved to Texas. We never had one before that either. Who cares about my vacuum?!! I'm so dumb.
I know you are all waiting for pictures, but I need to burn them onto a CD so I can bring them to work and put them on here. Maybe I'll do that tonight if I have time. But knowing me I'll get distracted with things that need to be put away and do that instead. It's kinda hard for me to sit still and relax. I think I have adult ADHD. I noticed when I was unpacking, I would open a box, start putting things away and then see something that needed to go in a different room so I'd bring it in there then start putting things away in that room, until I saw something that needed to go in another room- you see my drift. My husband was getting mad at me cuz I couldn't just get one room done, I had to work on all six at the same time. I do that at work too, If i've been doing the same thing for too long (like today) I have to find something else to do.
Anyway, I have to get busy! talk at you later!

Cool song.

Hey, I keep hearing this song on which I listen to all day at work. Anyway, I love this song and I thought I might share the lyrics with you, because they are what sticks to me the most.... Whoever says they don't listen to the words just the music when they hear a song are full of crap. No matter what you always hear the words, that's why when a stupid song comes on that you hate, you know all the words. That's just my little splur on why I think Christians should only listen to Christian music. I had to hear country music all day at work before I got speakers on my computer, and now, despite me trying to block out the words I know the words to all those nasty country music songs like "tequila makes her clothes fall off",

"Save a horse, Ride a cowboy," and that song "I'm not as good as I once was but I'm as good once as I ever was...." I'm sorry but no matter how hard you dont want to hear the words, you do and that is what gets stuck in your head!!!! that's what you meditate on all day! is that pure, lovely, noble, honorable etc??? I don't think so. Anyway, here are the lyrics to "Faith Like That" By Jonah 33

I have read about the days of old
About the men who followed You
And how they saw the supernatural
And became the chosen few

So I come before You now
Tearing off my earthly crowns
For this one thing I have found

I want a faith like that
To see the dead rise or to see You pass by
I want a faith like that
Whatever the cost, I'll suffer the loss
I want a faith like that

I'm not looking for a miracle
Signs and Wonders or things thereof
I caught a glimpse of what You want for me
And what I have is not enough
I read the story one more time
Of those who gave to You their lives
With no fear or compromise

I want a faith that can move any mountain
And send them to the seas
I want a faith that can break every stronghold
That keeps You, that keeps You from me

Happy New Year!

Well, it's been a long time since I posted, but no one even made a comment, so everyone must be really busy. Beth hasn't even posted since before Christmas. Did everyone have a great Christmas and New years Eve? We've been really busy with traveling, but we're done now. After today we will be completely moved into our new apartment. and I will take pictures and post them. We drove to PA for New years weekend and got to see our godchildren, they are SO DARN CUTE! They will be coming down to visit us in the spring, that will be fun too. Christmas was great we visited with my husband's family, they are a bunch of fun people. Stacy, I drove right through Ohio but didnt know I was going to until the day I drove through, I should have called you anyway, I am a bad friend. The ten hour drive from TN to PA turned into like 12 hours cuz we hit snow in Ohio somewhere. I am still at work, so I can't post much. but just wanted to say HI! someone leave a comment!
