Take a moment to get to know us.
I married my best friend in 2006 on a June day.
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not another to lift him up! Again, if two lie together, they keep warm, but how can one keep warm alone? And though a man might prevail against one who is alone, two will withstand him—a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
2015 is here already! I had not updated the "Meet the Family" section in over 2 years! This blog sure has changed since I started it in 2011. I do wish I had more time to poor into this blog but at this time I have limited time and I apologize for all my typos! Since the start of my blog we relocated from Wisconsin to Iowa and I went from a stay at home mom to a working mom. I am a special education teacher so I do still get lots of time with my babies which I treasure.
1 John 3:18
Dear children, let us not love with words or
tongue but with actions and in truth. (NIV)
We welcomed our first blessing in September 2007, Selah came 4 weeks early but she was the best surprise. We were not planning on getting pregnant so early in our marriage but God knows what is best! She sure added a ton of joy to this family.
Selah 3 months old
Selah 9 months old.
Selah is now 7 years old and enjoys school, being a big sister, singing, and all things girly! She joined girl scouts this year and still is a leader in our children's program at church.
Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a
reward from him. (NLT)
Titus couple weeks old
Titus loves his pacifiers. Titus is almost 1 and he loves his family, balls, and his blue polk a dot blankie.
Titus is a wired almost 4 year old boy! He brings a sense of humor with him where ever he goes. He is all about super heroes and fighting but he still needs his mama cuddle time.
But Jesus said, "Let the children come to me.
Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven
belongs to those who are like these children."
My blog is covered with more family pictures so stay awhile and look around. Also, my blog is full of life stories, craft ideas, christian messages, encouragement, reviews and giveaways, and PRAISE and LOVE!

St. Patrick's day is March 17th so its approaching quickly. I have a few ideas on art and food projects that i want to do with the kiddos. Hopefully I will have enough time to complete them and share them with you. This was a super easy one for those little hands. I cut the stripes of colored paper but if you are working with a preschooler or school aged child then they can practice cutting. The two toddler boys here only had to glue the pieces on their piece of paper. EASY, but they enjoyed it! :) It sure has brightened my kitchen with them hanging on the fridge! :) I also talked more about the Promise God gave us with the rainbow since I know that history a whole lot better then the history of the Irish Holiday!

MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway! (#1 rated scrapbook software) The above is one of the scrap pages I have created. Super easy and super fast. I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book. I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments! The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes! :) SO EASY! Here is a great video explaining more about the product. There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create. THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online. The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create. :) One feature t
