Encouraging Thoughts...

For the waywardness of the simple will kill them, and the complacency of the fools will destroy them: but whoever listens to me will live in safety and be at ease, without fear of harm.

Proverbs 1 :32-33

Can you believe it is December??? Time flies way too fast! Kenna turns 5 years old on Thursday. WOW! We have been so blessed by this beautiful little girl, and can't believe we are already thinking about kindergarden! She loves going to preschool so I know she will love kindergarden, but I know she will miss her brother, since he will be in a different school for preschool. I will post pictures soon as I am of coarse blogging at work! No pictures here:) Merry Christmas to all of you!

Luke 2:10-12
And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy that will be for all the people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger"

trick-or-treat at the farm

So I am officially crazy! I volunteered to watch my friends 2 little boys (age 18months and 3yrs) on top of my own 3 adorable kids (4,3 and 1). And I thought what fun the local kids farm is having a trick-or-treat day, we should do that! I took 5 kids under the age of 4 to the farm for candy! I did have a little help (Our friends Kieth and Tshaun brought their 2 kids along). It was fun, and really not as difficult as I thought and the kids LOVED it. Here are some pictures of or cuties!!

So I know I said I would post pictures of me after I ran, well here they are (yes almost a month later!) I finished and did not totally die, but I was definitely spent! I ran it in 2hours and 9mins... I was hoping to break the 2hour mark, but just missed! Oh well, it is a long way to run, so I am not disappointed! I ran with a couple of my friends from small group, so it made for a fun morning! I think in the future I will stick with the shorter races (5 and 10K's) Well enjoy the pictures!

So I know it has been a long time since I blogged! I keep thinking I will upload my pictures and post them... Well that takes time : )) Some day I will get it done I promise! But I thought I would just update on our summer. It has been crazy, not doing to many big things but somehow the summer always goes by too fast. Kenna and Levi are starting preschool in the beginning of September so I have been trying to get out and go to the pool and the park as often as I can with them. (Plus... it helps with all the energy!) I am training to run half marathon... 13.1miles that is a long way! But I am excited and ready. The race is Sept 19th her in Fort Collins. I will post picts of that when I'm done so you can see how exausted I am! I will get pictures posted sometime this week of the last month or so, so you can see how much fun we've been having!

God is Good!

I went for a run yesterday with a friend from our bible study, Shanole. It was turning out to be a great run, filled with sunshine and fellowship. As we were running we came across one of the dads in our small group, on his bike. Initially we thought nothing of it, but when he came to a screeching hault, we knew something was up. His two little boys, Wyatt 3yrs old and Vrai 20months, had gotten out of their house and were missing. They found the little one quickly sitting on the trail a couple hundred feet from their house. But the 3yr old was nowhere to be found. Scary! As a mom, it was terrifying, not only was he missing, but the trail runs along a river! Anyway, I know God put us there at that time, to comfort our friend. After a quick prayer from the speedy return and saftey of their child we ran straight to her house to give our love and support. We searched for a while longer and after about 45mins of hime being missing, he was founds about a mile and a half away from their house on his bike. (No he didn't even seem fazed by the happenings of that morning!) Praise God he was safe and that he was not distracted by the water!
Psalm 117:2
For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LORD endures forever. Praise the LORD

4th of july #2

Well this year the weather was not so great... It rained all afternoon and they canceled the fireworks in Loveland (they are closer to out house than Ft Co) so we missed out! Here are some cute pictures of the kiddos with their 4th of July clothes. Some cute ones of them waiting, looking out the window and hoping it will stop raining ( reminds me of Cat and the Hat!)

4th of July

Well as many of you know, the 4th of July is my favorite holiday. Fireworks good old fashioned American fun and yes our Anniversary! This year makes 7 years married to Kyle, my outstanding husband! he is truely an amazing man:) This year he surprised me by taking me up to Estas Park to a little bed and breakfast. So much fun! I only wish we could have stayed longer, but as it was our first time (ever) to get away without the kids it was perfect. Here is a picture of us. Yes, Us no Kids : )))

Vacation Bible School...

Kenna and Levi were able to attend VBS this year for the first time and WOW! It was so much fun: ) They both LOVED it. It was so awesome as a parent to see your kids learning about God, The creater of the universe and loving it. It is amazing how much they understand. Kenna tells me that Jesus lives in her heart so she can take him anywhere. Cute! And so unbelievably true. Levi doesn't quite understand that he can live in his heart, but is also funny, because he tries to look for him. So perfect to his personality. Levi and Kenna both love to sing the songs from VBS, and yes I bought the CD to listen to in the car, and well there is no other music allowed by them in the car, (it's been almost a month). We all know the words by heart! Here's some pictures that I took that week!

Kenna Plays Soccer!

I know that the soccer season is over, but well I am just getting all my pictures onto the computer! Anyway, this was Kenna's first year playing an "organized" sport. It was so funny to watch as the whole team (3 players at a time) would run up and down the field together and chase the ball. It is interesting at this age to watch because they are learning first how to kick the ball, and where and what a goal is! It is also funny as parents as we encourage our child to steal the ball from the other team, when for 4 1/2 years we have been trying to teach them to share! Interesting how playing a sport changes the way you look at some things. Kenna scored a goal this season (well two, but one was for the wrong team) it was awesome to see her play! Who knows if this will be in her future but for now, it is so fun to watch and see her enjoy herself! She has been so facinated by soccer every since she saw her dad play, and she loves to kick the ball with him and Levi! Hope you enjoy the pictures

I am gonna test this out on a few of you, sorry because I'm not sure I know what I am doing! Hope you enjoy, watching as our family grows up and plays together.
Here is a picture of Disney World from earlier this month. We were blessed to have my Grandma from Washington D.C. meet us there. It was so much fun!
