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 ...

A girlfriend and her 3 kids came out for a week-long visit last month.  Her daughter ("the girlfriend") impressed Alex with her 4 year-old sculpted arm muscles!

... He has been forever changed.

Fast forward to a few minutes ago.  I think the conversation went something like this...

Alex: Daddy, my arm muscles are now getting bigger, but my leg muscles aren't yet.
Aaron: What do you want to do?
Alex: Make them bigger.
Aaron: Okay.  Hang on a second.  Now pull both of us instead of just Harrison.
Alex: Will that make my leg muscles bigger?
Aaron: Definitely.
Alex: Hehehe.  Okay!
(my cell phone rings)
Aaron: Julia - grab the camera and get out here!

Ava ... sweetie ... if my Alex turns into THIS 


one day because of you ... well, I'm letting you know right now that I'm holding you personally responsible. *grin*
