Where did the time go!?!

My last post was about how horrible I had been about blogging. It has been 17 months since I made that post. 2010 has been a blur. My baby started kindergarten and now is almost a first grader and the boy is about to be in 3rd grade!! How can that be?!? I started this blog when he was 5 years-old. Things have definitely changed! I am definitely going to be better about blogging because this will be my electronic scrapbook. I am totally envious of all my crafty scrapbooking friends. I want to cherish the days because they fly by so fast and you forget things that you swore you wouldn't! Summer will be here and we have some fun adventures planned! I am excited to share them!

Life is busy!

I am pretty sure that I am the world's worse blogger! I had every intention of blogging of at least once a week and well, I haven't blogged since July. I wish I could say I had a good reason but I really don't! Life is just busy!!

Since my last blog entry things have been crazy! In August we went to Surfside, TX and spent a week with my family at the beach. We celebrated my parents 40th wedding anniversary and had such a great time!

Once we got back, it was time to get ready for school! Luke started first grade and Emma started Pre-K. I can't believe how fast time goes by! My kids are getting so big.

They both played soccer this fall. This was Emma's first time to play and she loved it! Luke moved up to the bigger field and now plays 5 on 5.

Once soccer ended, it was almost Thanksgiving and now Christmas will be here in 3 weeks!

2009, Where have you gone!!

Here are few pictures from our year.

Summer Bible Study

I am doing my first Beth Moore bible study this summer. I spent many years in BSF and did think I could handle the challenge of BSF and on her studies. God's timing is good. Esther is an amazing study and I am learning so much. If you haven't done the study, I highly reccomend it. I love this verse from last week.
Psalm 119:37-38 - Turn my eyes from worthless things, and give me life through your word.

Last night Beth spoke about fear. I never though of myself as a person who fears things but over the last year, I definitely have felt a spirit of fear in myself. Fear that something will happen to my kids, fear of you name it. I also have found myself falling away from the closeness that I once had in my relationship with the Lord. Satan has gotten hold of my thoughts and put in me in an almost constant state of worry. Then Beth spoke these word "until we learn to live without fear we won't be able to follow Jesus." Man.. I felt like God was speaking directly to me. I am so thankful for the timing of this study. God is good all the time.

I am also thankful for this promise. Philippians 1:6 - And I am certain that God , who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.

Thank you Lord!

It's been a long time!

It has been forever since I posted on my blog. I was having so many issues with blogger and making updates. I got very frustrated and stopped posting. Hopefully, I have gotten all the issues figured out and will start posting again. I like to post with pictures and haven't been able to because of the issues with blogger. There is a lot to blog about!

Things are crazy busy around our house! Luke is finishing up his first year of school. I can't believe how fast it has gone by! Brian is finishing up his school year. He has 2 classes left and then on May 14th, he will be graduating from DBU with his MBA!! I am super proud of him.

Emma just turned four and is just as cute as can be! She loves her gymnastics and I love watching her!

I am glad to be back and will be posting more later. Hopefully with pictures!

A random game of TAG

Here are the rules:

Post the rules on your blog.
Write 6 random things about yourself.

Six random things about me:

1. I save bows and Christmas paper, (assuming it is in good shape) , tissue paper and gift bags
2. I am super competitive and hate to lose.
3. I drove around with a box of flairs in my car for 7 years and who knew that they had a picture of my husband and father-in-law on them! Brian was with me before I even knew him!
4. I love to garden (but don't have a lot of time to do it)
5. I have broken my arm and my foot (2 times).
6. I get a Christmas ornament every time we visit someplace new. Then it is a reminder of all the places we have been!
