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 ...

The "girlfriend"

So ... Alex officially has a "girlfriend".  They've been "going out" for almost 5 months now, and when you're 5 (and she's a respectable 4 1/2), that's an eternity!  Well, she and her family came to spend most of last week with us on Dogwood.  Alex was convinced that they came so she could see him (never mind that the MOM is one of my closest friends).  He even asked if "his girlfriend could sleep in his room" (in a sleeping bag) ... ummmm ... innocent as the request was, I drew the line on that one!

Well, the 4 kids had a MARVELOUS time together - despite a few punches, pinches, pushes, screaming matches, and an impromptu water fight in the kitchen and family room while the grown-ups were tackling a project upstairs.  But it's not every group of 2-5 year olds that can play together for 2 hours at a time without adults having to intervene!

Here are some highlights of the week, from Alex's point of view.
