Confession of a Stay at Home Mom

Ok, so for those of you have have not heard we bought a new bed. After sleeping three years on a Full sized bed and mattress Joe got at a garage sale we bought a new Queen sized memory foam mattress. And it is wonderful. But when we tried to take it up our stairs it would not we are now moving our room to the downstairs guest room.
All week I have been cleaning out closets and finding new places for our "junk". While cleaning I came upon my wedding dress hanging up in the guest room closet. And I thought, " I bet I can fit in it still." :) So, later that evening I tried it on and.... It fit! I was so excited! But mostly I just stood in front of my mirror and stared at myself-for a long time. And I kept saying, "It is so pretty, I love this dress!" I finally relented and put it back but I had it on for about 30 minutes of total vanity.

New....Slip Covers!

Here are my NEW chocolate brown suede slip covers that I've had for a month, and finally put on while the boys were napping today.
Asher woke up right as I started taking pictures, so you'll see a not quite awake little boy in a couple of the pics.
Benny came down from his nap and exclaimed "Mommy! What are those on my couch?"
Come on by and check them out.
Now all I need are new blinds, some painting and curtains....even though we have lived here for 3 years. :) Oh well, everything including myself is a work in process.

Daddies are so fun!

Fun @ the park

I feel so blessed to be married to a man who is such an amazing father to our children. The boys have so much fun with Joe, and he loves to talk and play with them. Lately we have been noticing how Asher is doing everything that Benny does and how Benny does everything daddy does. It is such an important thing for us as parents to be like Christ, so challenging and intimidating, but so necessary. How blessed to be parents and to show the Lord to our children....I feel like hitting my knees right now and praying just thinking about this.
