So much to little time!

I feel like the older the I get the much more I feel like I need more than 24 hours in my day. I have such good intentions to keep this blog up but I feel like it is the one thing that I struggle with the most.

We truly have had so much going but I get tired of not having down time. Eddie was on a mission trip to Colorado two weeks ago and I had all kinds of projects planned for myself such as organizing my craft room, organizing my recipes, and reading a good book. Well that week came and went and honestly I'm not sure if I accomplished anything while he was gone.

With that said, we have painted our bedroom and master bath. We still need to paint the trim and add crown molding. We had a gentleman out yesterday to give us a quote on adding a portico and small gable to the front of our house and we have some landscaping that we are in the middle of. Do you think we need anything else on our plates right now?!?! What can I with us is never boring! If we have spare time it is dangerous.

I promise that pictures will come soon because I am so proud of our accomplishments...I just need the time to do it!

Until then,

He is Risen....He is Risen Indeed!!!

This Easter has by far been the most amazing! My parents came and stayed with us for the weekend and went to our church and then we all went to my brother and sister-in-law's church and then had lunch together.

It was an awesome weekend and I'll post pictures soon, but I have some pretty amazing news to share.

My nephew, Zach, accepted Jesus into his heart today! He is 7 years old. I am the proudest aunt on the planet right now! I am SO excited for him and cannot wait for his special day to get baptized and share that day with him.

I just wanted to share my big news! I'll post pics of our Easter soon.

Until then....He is Risen!!!

Snow Day!!!

2010 has been an exciting year in Tyler, least as the weather is concerned! It has snowed three times so far this year but on Friday, February 12, we got 6 inches of snow!!!

I've attached some pics of the day. It was so beautiful! My girls didn't really think so!

This is the view of the front of our house from the driveway. I was on my way to work and didn't want to get out of the car! :)

The footprints picture is Eddie's footprints. He had to be at work that morning at 7am. I took the picture to remember how deep the snow was.

Hallie was SO not impressed with the snow. It made her chest and belly wet, lol!

I do have to admit that I thoroughly enjoyed the snow! Eddie...not so much! It was just nice to see it for a change since we do so rarely.

Until next time.....

Promises, promises.....

I know that I say all the time that I will consistently update my blog but this time I mean it!!!

I have some VERY exciting news to share! I GOT A NEW JOB!!!!

I am the Administrative Assistant for the Adult Impact Ministry at Green Acres Baptist Church. I have been a member of this church for about 8 years and this is a pretty new ministry and I am so blessed to be a part of it. I just started three days ago so I am still trying find everything and figure everything about but so far it's going great!

One of my favorite things about the job is that I'll be working with people and helping them to figure out their spiritual gift and then be able to get plugged in. Once I learn the paperwork side of the position I hope to be able to be out in the community and get to know people at different organizations in order to establish relationships and send people their way when the need arises. It is going to be amazing!!!

I have been praying for a while about how to use my spiritual gifts and be able to interact with people on a different level. My relationship with the Lord has also grown so this job fulfills so many aspects of my desires and what I've wanted to do. I'm so grateful that God and I were on the same page, LOL!

As I previously stated, I promise to be able to post more and should be able to since this job is part time for several months. I hope to get caught on up some much needed spring cleaning at my house and hope to be crafty! I sure do miss stamping!

Until blessed!!
