Blog break

I am headed to my mom's for a few days while Stephen is out of town. She doesn't have a computer at her house, so I will be on a break!! Please pray for Stephen as he is gone to Wilderness Trek in CO. He is really excited about it and is anxious for God to speak to him there. Pray for me as I deal with the kiddos by myself. Campbell and Claire aren't feeling well, so I am already tired. Not good since Stephen won't be home until next Saturday!! Anyway, my mom will be able to help me at night so that will be good. Have a great week!

Thank you!

My friend Jaime is doing better today. They have gotten her labor stopped and she is doing much better. The baby is still doing well on the monitors. Keep them in your prayers as they travel home!

Please pray!

Our friends Jeff and Jamie from church are in Memphis right now for a convention and Jamie has been admitted to the hospital. She is 24 weeks pregnant and there is a possibility she will have to deliver early. Please lift them in prayer right now!!

Luke is potty trained!!!

And he did it himself!! Seriously. I had nothing to do with it. Day before yesterday, he woke up and said, "I wanna go pee pee in the potty." So off we went. I had been telling him that when he used the potty all the time, he could wear his new Cars underwear. So, he picked out the ones he wanted to wear. For the rest of the day, he took himself to the potty. EVERYTIME!!! He even pooped in the potty with no problems. I am just beside myself. Yay for Lukey!!!!!

On another note, things are still pretty much the same around here. Stephen is still working at Target and is finishing up school. He goes to Wilderness Trek in Colorado next week. He will be gone Saturday to Saturday. I am NOT looking forward to it, but I know it will be a HUGE blessing for him. I just hate being at home by myself. I am a chicken. I think we may go stay with my mom for part of the week. She works full time, but she would be there to help at night with the kids, so that is probably our plan.

We are going to visit with some friends that we don't get to see much anymore. Well, we go to church together, but since all of them are in school and two of mine are, we just don't get to spend much time together. I am SOOO looking forward to it. Have a blessed day!

Fashion Fast

I came across this blog today and wanted to pass the idea along. Everyone I know has MORE than enough of just about everything. Stephen and I have noticed that even in our situation, with him not working full-time yet and our money being EXTREMELY tight, we still have more than enough. What would it be like to not shop for a year? How would it change our views on what we think we "need"? Would we realize how wasteful we are? Would we realize how incredibly blessed we are? It really has me thinking. We have turned off our satellite, cancelling the Y, eating out (this one has been the hardest for me), pretty much everything that we can cut out, we have. I must say, it has been good.

Please pray...

for the Ivey family. They are trying to adopt two precious children from Haiti and they are apparently having some major setbacks. I had the privelege of meeting them a couple of weeks ago. They are amazing people. Please take a minute and pray for them. Thanks!
