Caeden's birthday

Caeden's birthday is not till May, he will be 3.  But so far, he wants a motorized jeep, kids vitamins, and stairs for his room.  True story.   I am sure i will have to keep adding to this list.


This is the coolest bunk bed ever.  I could see my boys sharing a room really soon..... if we could only afford it.  it is from

Secretary cabinet

This would really look great in my bedroom too, and help us have an organized work space.  it is a computer cabinet from west elm.

cool closet

This might replace our closets in our bedroom.
we can knock down our closets and install this.  It is from IKEA.

Rest and Relaxation

This weekend was soooooo needed.  Mike and I were able to get away for one night.  We stayed at the Hyatt in Weston.  I got a Swedish Massage, we lounged by the pool, took a bike ride at Markham park, Shopped at Sawgrass Mills, and Visited the new IKEA.  It has been  a year and a 1/2, since we did that last.  Thanks to my parents for watching the kids, and taking them to the ZOO.  They always enjoy time with Gram and Grandaddy.  Markham park is really cool. it is $3.00 admission and they have a dog park, playground, dirt bike trails, sidewalk bike trails, jet skiiing, fishing, a gun range, and a motorized airplane field.  We definitely want to go back to IKEA.  I always get so many great ideas from there.  It is an overwhelming store and was very busy!!
Thanks Mike for loving me and being my best friend!

Tonight at church we learned about the parable of the seed falling on different types of soil.  We have the choice to be the hard hearted soil, weak hearted soil, divided heart soil, or healthy hearted soil.  Lord, let me have a healthy heart and learn to hear you WORD and let it change me.  And let me learn how to teach my children how to have a healthy heart that lets your WORD root deep in their soul and change their lives.

The Beach

We went to the beach this morning.  Unfortunately we don't get there very often.  Caeden had fun pouring sand on Owen's head, chasing the sea gulls, and building sand castles.  Owen had fun digging in the dirt and trying to walk with Daddy.

Cirque Dreams

Last Night was an amazing experience, almost. Cirque dreams came to Barbara B Mann, here in town.  I went with my family, except my lovely husband decided to stay home with 2 sick kids.  I couldn't enjoy it as much without him and i was worried about Owen, so i left at intermission.  I would highly recommend anyone going to see a Cirque show, and if anyone wants to babysit for a weekend, Mike and I will get away to Orlando and enjoy the show there. :)

First Smile

A year ago i had no clue what a blog was, and now i am attempting to configure one.  Lately i have become fascinated with the vast resource of information and inspiration in the blogoshpere.  I have mostly perused design sites.  So I am going to join in as i take this year to search daily for those things that make me smile.   I love to smile and laugh and i am blessed with a family that allows me to do that.  Recently life has handed us more things to frown on, but i am wanting to rise above, and with God's help choose to Smile.  He deserves the glory, for he is bigger than my circumstances.
