This was one of the first photo shoots that we set up with our new camera 2 years ago. When we got the results onto the computer it was worth the $1200 that the camera cost to me. I love these photos of me and my last baby:)




I'm sorry my blog friends that I have been neglectful of this part of my life. When I'm feeling inadequate, I stop posting on my blog too because I don't think I have anything interesting to share.


So here's the lowdown:


*grammy came and helped get ready for the pet party (yeah yeah)

*visit with grammy was wonderful

*pet party came and went with a sparkling clean house

*i was determined to keep the house sparkling

*we started a financial peace class

*jaden got pneumonia

*everyone else got the flu

*1/2 of western washington got the flu

*but not mommy

*i started working on 10 brand new pages for a big contest entry

*the house went downhill quickly

*jon has a birthday and we have a real date

*the financial peace thing is going well

*jon and i are communicating very well

*i'm still working on my entry

*the house is still sliding downhill because i'm still working on my 10 layouts

*people are going comando b/c the laundry hasn't been done in two weeks

*my entry is done

*my entry is overnighted to Utah

*i start focusing on the house as much as I can but its overwhelming

*so i watch tv

*laundry is started but going slowly....people have underwear now though

*jon and i are still communicating well thanks in part to the financial peace classes

*i'm trying to learn from my mistakes

*we have a valentine's dance

*God is good all the time

*i need to get back to homeschool and making lunch.

So the trouble is not with the law, for it is spiritual and good.

The trouble is with me, for I am all too human, a slave to sin.

I don’t really understand myself, for I want to do what is right, but I don’t do it.

Instead, I do what I hate.

But if I know that what I am doing is wrong,

this shows that I agree that the law is good.

So I am not the one doing wrong; it is sin living in me that does it.

And I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature.

I want to do what is right, but I can’t.

I want to do what is good, but I don’t.

I don’t want to do what is wrong, but I do it anyway.

But if I do what I don’t want to do,

I am not really the one doing wrong;

it is sin living in me that does it.
