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 ...

Treasure Hunt

I had previously posted a picture of the fish that were being used for the treasure hunt to find Alex's birthday cake. When I read the first clue, and the boys just stared back at me, I was scared that the concept was too advanced for their age. But after they ran to the front door and found the next one, it quickly turned into a TOTAL HIT!

After the treasure hunt was done, and we were all eating cake, all three boys begged me to take the fish decorations off the walls and use them as more clues and to hide all the gifts. They wanted another treasure hunt! I think I'll keep this idea in mind for future kid parties. It's always good to have a few good games up your sleeve!

"I don't see it ... do you?""I found one!""Help, Behret. It's too high for us to reach!""Huh? Where did she say the next clue is?"
