We have been praying hard lately for an answer to our prayers and God has blessed us. I am currently at a job that is only part time which makes it hard to save for our adoption.
I am so excited I am starting a new job!
This new job is going to be amazing! I am going to be the office manager with a new company that is coming to town. The headquarters is located in Seattle Washington so I get to fly there for 2 weeks for training. Now to find a job that is so flexible and actually cares about family is a true blessing. We have the perfect set up now. The days that I will be working I will have family watching our little one. I love that we have a beautiful and close family and friends to help us. I didn’t want to put our little one into daycare for I wanted my family and friends to enjoy our little blessing and I want to be there for our child. This job is going to allow me to just that. I get to be mommy and enjoy it. I am so happy to have what feels like an up on our crazy roller coaster life!
It is so nice and refreshing to get a new start in life sometimes. I feel this is going to be a good year. It has had its ups and downs and we are only in March but I just feel that this is going to be a good year!
Thank you GOD!!!
One Door Closes.Another Opens
When God leads you to the edge of the cliff, trust Him fully and let go, only 1 of 2 things will happen, either He’ll catch you when you fall, or He’ll teach you how to fly! ‘The power of one sentence! God closes doors no man can open & God opens doors no man can close..
We had a wonderful Valentines this year! We know of this little cabin in McCall that we have rented last Valentines and it is the cutest! It is only $50.00 a night and it is the most amazing small little cabin. It is very cozy and modern. Everything about it is small but very romantic. The cabin has everything you need which makes it so nice. We made our own dinner and saved a bunch of money doing this! We got to bring our dog Newman who had so much in the snow. We also had fun and went to the Gold Fork Hot springs! It is so cool there and the water is so clean and warm. MMMM wish I was there now! Here are some pictures of our weekend.

My cousin Vanessa and her son Kelby came down to be with my aunt Linda since she was able to go home from the hospital yesterday. She is doing good still having some pain and difficulty eating but she is doing well. It was so good to see Vanessa. She has already lost most of her baby weight! She looks amazing! Kelby is an adorable little boy with cheeks that could just be kissed alllllllllll day! They are the softest cheeks ever. He is so adorable. She is such a lucky mom. She is so good with him.

Friday night we didn’t do much at all we just stayed around the house and relaxed.
Saturday Justin had to work so my mom, sister and little Maddox came over in the morning and off to Babies R Us we were. We went shopping for a bassinet. I have been looking all over for one and just couldn’t decide. Here is a picture of the one I finally got!
I love it! It is nice and light too. We have a two story home and the baby’s room is all the way upstairs. So this will be perfect for her to sleep in downstairs. She is going to love it.
Saturday night we made homemade spaghetti. I love spaghetti. We didn’t end up eating it because we wanted to save it for meals for the week but it was good! We wanted to go camping but since Justin had to work we camped in the back yard!
It was great. Where we have this fire pit is tucked back in the corner and it felt just like we were camping. The smell of the wood and camp fire were awesome. You couldn’t really hear anything else. The wind was blowing so it kind of drowned out the noise. Then we went and slept outside in our 5th wheel for the night. We had so much fun.
Sunday we got up and had biscuits and gravy homemade by Justin. They were so good. We headed off to a new church were Justin’s boss was preaching at. He is an amazing amazing amazing preacher. Wow every time he speaks he just moves me so much. I tear up everytime. Great Man, great leader, and great friend. After church we headed out to our friends house for lunch. Justin cooked up 10 pounds of chicken wings. Oh my they were so good. Everyone loved them. Our friend Josh made homemade onion rings and potato chips that were to die for. Great lunch. Then it was off to Justin’s parents house for dinner.
WE ATE WAY TOO MUCH ON SUNDAY I THINK I GAINED 10 POUNDS IN ONE DAY.
Here is grandma Irene. One of the most amazing women you will ever meet. Love her so much.
This is Mary Justin’s mom! She was so excited to have everyone over. She went out and bought a new tablecloth and made this really good pear cake. Yum Yum. Robert his dad is an amazing cook. He loves to cook. He made us fish and chips that he caught on the Oregon Coast this summer. You never walk away hungry from there at all!
Her yard is amazing it looks so nice right now. She is really big into landscaping and gardening. She has a huge pond that is so nice to go and sit by. The colors are awesome this time of year there. Couldn’t get a picture it was too dark for my camera phone.
Overall we had a great and busy weekend!
