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 ...

Easter Eggs

This evening Alex dyed Easter eggs for the first time ever. I know it's still a bit early, but he found the box of Paas dye I had stashed away somewhere, and had been begging me for more than two weeks to do it! I finally caved in, and he had a blast! I'm thrilled that nothing besides the eggs (and the gloves we ended up putting on) got stained. But we have had some casualties already - we did a dozen eggs, and already three have been dropped (from playing with them too much) and will never recover from the fatal cracks! After Aaron put the camera away, Alex used all the stickers he could find to decorate them. Since I prefer them plain-Jane, I choose not to get the camera back out.
