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.

The weather over all was great. Little windy but it was a great sunny weekend!
We had my nephew over for the night on Friday. It was a blast he is such a good kid. He didn’t sleep to well so I took him into the spare bedroom and slept with him in bed! He loves to cuddle. He also likes to beat up whoever he is sleeping with him. He is a wild child. All over in the bed kicking and hitting. Loves to talk in his sleep so funny.
He loves his bath time!
Look at his new Halloween costume that he got for this year! So cute.
Saturday we got up bright and early with him. It was so cute at about 6:00am Justin came and climbed into bed with us. Maddox was so tired he wanted up but wanted to sleep. Justin kind of layed Maddox’s head on his chest. It was so cute to see them snuggling together.
After he left our house Justin and I decided to work around the house. I mowed the yard he did the leaves then it was cooking time. We ended the night with a nice warm fire.
So no laughing I just realized my lines are horrible. I can’t mow straight!
Preparing the wings… it was cold out but we love the out doors.
Can you say yum yum!!!
Sunday we celebrated my mother’s birthday. We had everyone over for lunch/dinner. Justin made a Luau Pineapple chicken over the grill. Oh my so good. Then I made baby red potatoes that were to die for. My brother in law made us some asparagus. Erica made her famous rice crispy’s and deviled eggs. We had such a great meal. To top it off mom made two of her favorite pies. I am waiting on her to send some pictures to me!
