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 ...

Skiing on Dogwood

I mentioned in a previous post that (by my prodding) Aaron attempted to ski down our unplowed street / hill this morning.  The plows didn't get to our street till around 3:30 (apparently one wrecked, so they were behind getting to everyone).  I was totally bummed that I didn't get any pics on our camera of Aaron's venture.  (I can't breathe well in cold weather, so I stayed inside with the wee one).  Well, one of the neighbors took pics of Aaron skiing.  (Thanks, Cindy - I ripped them off your FB page - hope this isn't a copyright infringement *smile*)

Heading down the street - toward the hill

Almost there.

And down he goes!

The kids couldn't keep up - it's hard to trek through snow that's half as tall as you are!

It wasn't PURE defeat - he DID go about 200 feet!
