Boy I'm sure glad I changed my mind...

I just got home a few hours ago from our annual Westwood Women's Retreat which was held in Jacksonville, Florida. And, before I share how absolutely refreshing it was, I must tell you that I didn't even want to go. So much has gone on in my life since last years retreat and I just thought that I could sit this one out. You see I had reasons why I didn't want to go and felt that they were good enough...Not So Much! In the four years that my family has attended Westwood we have been blessed with friends who love us so much and have invested their time, prayers and encouragement in some of the toughest times in our lives. You see these sweet friends of mine knew that if I followed through with my decision to sit this one out,I was going to miss out on what the Lord wanted for me to hear. Oh my Goodness were they Right! Yes. In our sessions we learned how to begin to Love Well. This is something that I don't do Well at all. Heavenly Father, you are so intentional. Not only did I hear from you, but many of the women who are struggling with testy relationships in their own lives did as well. Thank you so much for this body of women who hunger and thirst for your righteousness. I am truly refreshed,encouraged, and desiring Your insight in relationships that I don't love well in. As I embark on this journey to love with Your love. Transform me so that my life may bring you Glory. I love YOU, Jesus.

A four year old, a two year old, and a newborn...need I say more!

Okay my friends I've got ALL the kids down at once which is a rareity around here. From taking Jakob & Aaliyah out of preschool to getting Jonah on a schedule its been a bit hectic around here. Sitting down to blog has very difficult for me to fit in this last month. But here I am. I don't know when I'll be back to be quite honest so here are some random pics of the kids..

Little Jonah hanging out in his swing!
I had laid him down on Jakob's towel and Jakob thought that was pretty cool.

Jakob & Jonah great friends already!

Jakob has been anticipating the arrival of his baby brother Jonah. He is very curious and has LOTS of questions for us about him. Since we've had Jonah home, Jakob has been wonderful with him. He even helped me give him a bath last night (look for those pics in the near fututre). Here are some shots of the two of them getting to know one another.

Fun times with Daddy!

So Johnny has been able to be home with us for two weeks and boy has he and Jakob took advantage of this. Instead of naptime, Johnny has been taking Jakob out to learn how to ride his skateboard. I snapped these pics of them as they were coming in from their intense lesson. Jakob learned how to balance on the board! He was ecstatic! Man these boys ROCK!

Loving life, loving family

Here are some photos since the hospital. We are doing well. Three is a whole different ballgame and with little to no sleep at times this seems almost impossible. But oh to know the one who is the calmer of the storm! The lord has blessed us with some pretty sweet momments with the kids and i just praise Him for this blessing of Jonah. Enjoy the pics!
