Visit from friends

Our friends Cindy and Bryce came into town from Houston with their 3 1/2 year old daughter Jenny. It was fun to hang out and catch up. They were able to meet little McKenzie and she seemed to enjoy the company. They are expecting another little one in September. Can't wait until baby Katie is here!!!

Ryan and Jenny loved on Kenzie. Eventually we had to rescue her from the kids trying to smother her with kisses. It was a fun visit.

Here we go!

As I sit here and attempt to write my first posting for the blog I wonder what is it about my day that people really want to know. Our life, I am sure, is about the same as everyone else. We go here, we go there and never seem to stop. Sometimes once I get the kids loaded I sit in the car, take a deep breathe and think "ok we made it" and I still have the rest of the day. Some days just getting in the car can seem like a full days work. So I remind myself about the verse I live by...."We walk by faith, not by sight." 1 Corinthians 5:7 This seems to apply to so many situations. When life seems to not be going as planned ( and I am a planner) I have to know that God is the one in control and I have to have faith in him that he will make things right. So whether this means my child is laying flat on the floor screaming at the top of his lungs because he couldn't have something and my newborn is still crying after I have fed her and changed her I tend to say the verse over and over knowing that soon this to will pass and I have faith in God that he will get these kids under control.....Heee But then when Ryan wraps his arms around me and says "Mommy I love you" and McKenzie gives me the newborn smile I know then this is what I was meant to do. There is nothing better than being a mommy. With all of that said life is wonderful and I wouldn't have it any other way. I have two wonderful children, an amazing husband, familes that do more for us than expected and friends that have become my sisters and brothers. What more could a person need?
