Charm is deceptive & beauty is fleeting: but the woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Proverbs 31:30

I am such a slacker!

Wow! It has been forever since I have posted a blog. I get on here everyday....but only to check on my favorite blogs listed on the side. I just so happened to look at the last post I made and noticed that it was in November! Slacker! Oh-well...guess I have lots of catching up to do.

We were very thankful for all that God has blessed us with at Thanksgiving.

We were very merry for Christ's birth at Christmas.

We were very new in renewed spirits at New Years.

Summed that up pretty well I think.

Kidding aside, things have been pretty good for us so far this year. As always, there are areas that need improvement. I could stand to be a better wife, Tripp could stand to be a better husband. I could stand to be a better daughter in Christ. Ok, really I NEED TO BE a better daughter in Christ!!! When I say that things have been good so far this year, I mean that we still have jobs, still have a house, still have cars...things like that. Things are not good in the most important areas. Our marriage is shakey and far from perfect. ( I know there is no such thing as a perfect marriage, but I would like to be a lot to closer to one than I am) I doubt everyday my abilities as a mother to raise a good child. Alex is such a blessing and such a precious little man. But he is knocking on the door of turning 3. He. Is. Very. Head. Strong. Which makes two of us. Tripp and I are not on the same page with our parenting styles so naturally Alex is confused. Don't blame him one bit. I am confused too! bjaobjotuaotuatahgk (had to get that out of my system)

I trust God and know that things will get better. He brought this family together and we have no intentions of taking it apart. I could just really use some direction at this point.

Time to switch gears! Focus on something happy, like my little guy. No matter how head strong he may be, he is still my heart! He makes me laugh like no other!

Hey, Katriana! Thanks for the update. Don't worry, I have a head strong little guy, too. Almost to the point that I see him running the house and not me or Jed. Hope things get easier.

as far as for the pictures at the bottom of the post..I don't know how to do that either..I just type between the pics that I load. If you figure it out..please let me know.
Have a wonderful day..I can't believe we have 3 yr olds!!! or at least, yours will be 3 soon..Kota turned 3 on the 28th

I totally know what you mean about who is and who isn't running the house! For sure doesn't help when Tripp and I are polar opposite pages! Urgh!

I have tried to type between the pics but when I post, it isn't like I want. I'll pass the details when someone shares them with me.

3 year old little men! O-My~ I can only imagine adding another one to the chaos right now! You and Jed are way braver than I am!

Good to chat with ya! Happy Late Birthday Kota!
