I'm a full-time wife and mom of two adorable boys. When I'm not busy trying to keep up with them I enjoy photography, traveling, planning parties and a little bit of reading.

In February of 2008 I was diagnosed with an incurable terminal lung illness, though God promised me a full and complete healing. While we wait for His timing, we're taking it one day at a time, and standing in awe of how God's using all of this for His glory. The tough road we've traveled has given us a new perspective on the fragility of life. Memories are more important to us than ever before. The goal of this blog is to share some of our family life - the ups and downs, the joys and probably some of the pains as well. It's mostly meant as a personal journal of sorts, but you're welcome to share in it. We'd like to take this opportunity to say ...

Cake Treasure Hunt

Alex turns 4 in a week, and we're having a small party with just family. But that doesn't mean it shouldn't still be tons of fun for him! We're doing a pinata (his very first!). I've also decided to do a treasure hunt to find the cake (a girlfriend found this idea online, and I loved it!). Since the theme is Under the Sea, I've cut out fish, and on the back of each is written each next clue. I've just finished creating them.

The cake is missing! It's hidden from view.
If you want your dessert, then here's what you do:
Follow the clues, they'll lead you to more.
To find your next clue, look by the front door!

Go fast as you can - there's no time to slouch!
You'll find your next clue by the living room couch.

The next clue is simple, it's not hard at all.
Look in the closet in the downstairs hall.

A clue - a clue - where can one be?
I think there's one hidden by the big t.v.

It's not a trick. It's not a trap.
Just look where you give your food a zap!

You've listened so well to what I've said,
That I'll make this quite simple - the clue's in the shed.

It's a clue you want, a clue that you seek.
Go to the pantry and take a peek!

Get moving now - quick as a crab.
Look on the treadmill, and it's a clue you'll nab.

When you're in the office, there's a closet you'll see.
And that's where the next clue will be.

You've reached the last clue - it's dessert you deserve.
You'll find the cake on the table - ready to serve!
