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 ...

Alex has a cold (apparently he inherited my proneness to get them). So, last night Alex and I stayed home while Aaron and Harrison went to small group. Not long before they got home Alex went upstairs to get his jammies. In retrospect, he probably shouldn't have been wearing his snow boots and playing with some chopsticks (we had Chinese take-out for dinner) while he was coming back down. He took a tumble - down the whole flight. Poor little guy! At first I thought his arm might be fractured (just above the wrist), but I think it's just a bad sprain. Since it was almost bedtime, we wrapped it so it wouldn't move and hurt so much while he slept. He thinks the bandage is so much fun that he's had it on all day today too! Hopefully he'll be as excited about his first pair of crutches when he gets them one day.....

My friend's little girl, who is 6, was apparently jumping on the bed last week and fell off. (Go figure the rhyme has a reason.) They didn't think much of it at first, but when the swelling didn't go down they decided to take her to the Dr. Sure enough her arm is broken and she's ecstatic about having to wear a cast for 4 weeks! However, I guess the excitement ended when she got an itch that she couldn't get to. Ah, kids... can't wait til I have my own to laugh at!
