So Ben and I went back to the dealership to sign more paperwork today, when we saw BOTH of our old cars on the lot for sale. The truck was no big deal, bu the Cavalier was funny. The turn signal had a glitch in it, so it doesn’t work 90% of the time. The funny thing is; when we traded it in, they tested it to see what they shoud give us for it, and it worked for them!!! So they are selling a 2002 Cavalier with a broken turn signal!! SUCKERS!!




Alyssa got her first taste of cereal yesterday. She didn’t know what to make of it at first, but she LOVED it!! She did end up wearing half of it, but only because she tried to take the bowl from me and ended up spilling half of it on her! I just had to share!

Things Sure Can Change!!

So things have really changed over the last week. Here is the rundown of what happened!!

~Alyssa discovered her feet this past Saturday. She will pull them to her face to eat them whenever she gets a chance to!!

~Ben and I have one car instead of two. We traded our cavalier and frontier in for a single, non-gas guzzling family car. We now have a 2006 Subaru Legacy sedan. It’s a dark silvery blue, but the pic was taken only a few minutes ago, so the bottom one is the same car, but ours doesn’t have the hole in the hood like the stock photo does.


~We are still apartment hunting. We have the search narrowed down to a few complexes up here in Longmont and a few in Broomfield. Which one we will pick, the Lord only knows!

~And last but not least Ben and I have started reading Marriage Revolution: Rethinking Your Relationship in Light of God’s Design by Debra White Smith. It is a very good book so far. It’s pretty much designed so you and your spouse read a chapter together while learning to let God take control of your marriage. At the end of the chapters there are little “Revolution Romance” sections that have you put the theme of the chapter into use. An example of it would be, in the first chapter you learn about how neither spouse is above the other in servant-hood. In remembering what Jesus said about washing your brothers feet, you do exactly that with your spouse, except with a foot massage. I must recommend the book!

OH NO!!!! It Broke!!!!

I’m sad. My beautiful little pump broke. Actually this tiny little white ring that keeps the handle on AND keeps the suction shattered! The funny thing is that the company that makes it doesn’t sell that little piece of rubber as a replacement part. I emailed the and they were willing to send me a free bottle to make up for it. In my mind I’m thinking “how is a bottle that Alyssa won’t take going to fix my pump?”

Oh well. I was thinking of looking into an electric one anyways.

Got A Cute One For Ya!

The quality’s not so good, but we were having fun! She actually fell asleep right after I finished the video!


I had to add this pic too. Allie decided she wanted to suck on my chin one night and I thought it was so funny I had to take a picture! The funny thing was that she wasn’t hungry, she just wanted to suck on my chin!

I’m sorry.

Let me explain. My family has a curse on us. Every time one of us washes our car, it rains. Usually only in the area they live in. Well, two days ago I washed AND cleaned out the inside of my car since we are selling it. I guess in my family if you wash your car, wax it, and clean out the inside after a year, it rains for a couple days straight. I also didn’t think I would make it rain through out the front range.

So I must say I am sorry for making it cold and rainy. In my defence, I blame my dad. He started it!!!

My Daddy!


Today is my dad’s birthday. Let me tell you a bit about him.

My dad has helped me become the woman I am today. He taught me a lot about life and how to handle struggles that come up. He is a great man of God. He showed me what to look for in a man (too bad I found a man that hates tomatoes as much as he does!) and to always look forward in life.

He taught me that a project is NEVER complete unless you bleed on it at least once, and that Mel Brooks movies are the bomb! He introduced me to Monty Python when I was in high school and we still get in to “make it pink/make it blue” fights every so often. He taught me that there is no such thing as a “boy” toy as a kid.

I look forward to seeing him play with Alyssa and her eventual siblings and cousins. I can’t wait to see the pedal car I know he has picked out for Allie and I know that Steven and her will have fun ganging up on him someday with Nerf guns.

I love you Daddy. I promise I will always be your little girl. Happy Birthday!!
