Stealing Moments.........


Tis' the season to be super busy! I don't think I am the only person that feels the pressure of the season am I? But I just had to share this ... Yesterday I was sitting on the couch folding my ever Large mound of clean cloths while my 2 littlest ones were happily playing on the floor in front of me and listening to some Christmas music on Pandora. Bryce had his trains and cars out and happily zipping all over the floor between the Living room dining room and Kitchen. All the while Little Miss Meya was hugging a soft baby doll happily laughing at her Brother zipping around her. Then she crawls up to me ( like she does soo much, shes my little attached one!) and reaches up for me and I pick her up and she layes her little sweet head on my shoulder ( this makes me tear up remembering yesterday) and she holds on tight and says ahh and we stayed like that for probably about a minute and and she lifts her head and wiggles down and carries on with her dolly at my feet and it had me thinking about those sweet moments and precious they are. Then I thought about my relationship with God this time of year and how I need to consciously steal moments with him all through out the day. How I want to live and breath God's word but not only for me selfishly but also for our children. I want so desperately to dig into God's word all Throughout my day not only in my "quite time" but all day. This time of year get so incredibly hectic and crazy and I need to stop and Steal precious moments with our Savior!

Matthew 11:28 says Come to me all who are weary and I will give you rest

Deuteronomy 4:29 NKJV "But from there you will seek the LORD your God, and you will find Him if you seek Him with all your heart and with all your soul.

Jeremiah 24:7 NIV I will give them a heart to know me, that I am the LORD. They will be my people, and I will be their God, for they will return to me with all their heart.

God's word is filled with such scriptures that just bring such life to me. I feel like when I'm in thr presnse of the Lord in my quite time it helps me become the Wife I want to be, the Mom I strive to become and the friend and women God desires for me. My favorite verse that just speacks to me so much and just makes me want to dive in to his word all day through out my day is Hosea 6:3 NKJV Let us know, Let us pursue the knowledge of the LORD. His going forth is established as the morning; He will come to us like the rain, Like the latter and former rain to the earth.
It just really has me thinking since yesterday and this verse just litterally was like a fire cracker in my heart and I felt like it jump started me to live out those precious moments with God like we have with our sweet little ones! God I just pray right now to keep this desire and spark going in my heart all day to seek you and your word through out the day and not just in the mornings...

Playing Catch up!

I just can't believe that Thanksgiving is upon us and Christmas is just right around the corner! This is With Out A Doubt My Most Favorite Time of The Year!!!!!! Can I just tell you I can't wait to get the fall stuff put away and get the Christmas/Winter Decor out!!! But There this house is in need of some TLC before any of that can happen! I just feel like the weeks have been getting away from me and I just can't catch up! I'm Thankful for tomorrow where I have nothing planned but to get us back in some kind of order!! I need a day to "catch up"

Oh how God has blessed us with these 3 precious precious gems! As challenging as being a wife and Mommy can be, I truly believe it's because of them I have the relationship with God that I do now! Believe me when I tell you that being a Mommy to 3 has its Ups and Downs. Our latest struggle has been 2 things, One our sweet little girl has yet ANOTHER ear infection, she is scheduled to have tubes on the 16th of Dec. and that can't come quick enough! My poor little girl. Over the last 6 -8 months this little girl has suffered from Ear infection after Ear infection, and she seems to have the same problem our little guy Bryce had, The way God designed their little ears the fluid is unable to drain and since we don't live in a "Bubble" *wink* we go to church and Mady is in school and we have MOPS and what not so there is germs and she gets a cold and it turns into an ear infection *whew*! SO needless to say that this Momma and little girl haven't been getting so much sleep especially lately! Some nights are a little more tough than others but I really try to think and act as if this is only a phase and I keep thinking when they get a older I will miss the nights when they need me! But thats tough and it got me thinking Sometimes I think God wants us to stay in a ceritain stage in our Walk with him because he is still working in us and wants to either Show us something new or teach us a lesson that we (I) haven't yet figured out or whatever so for all these *stages* I'm thankful even if they are a little painful. What I have learned is that I'm thankful for this *stage* and For where we are in our life right now even though the nights can be long and mornings seem to come to early...
Here are a couple of pictures I wanted to share of Miss Meya a friend Bern took of her last week..Oh How i can't wait to print them out and frame all these Beautiful Pictures!! Enjoy!!

Our Soccer star in the game!
Not so sure and hanging back with Daddy
Daddy helping Brycie with the drills and Mady watching
There he goes dribbling
So cute!!

We are soooo Excited Our Bryce (Brycie is what I call him) is playing Soccer! He's only 3 but it's so fun to watch him! We live in a township that you can start at 3! So he's been dying to play so yesterday was his first day! He plays at 9am so we loaded up the van with the kids and off we went he got up so early that morning so I said a prayer that he would still have fun! He did thank goodness but it was too funny to watch. It got off to a slow start the coach for his team never showed up so then someone stepped in they got their balls and their shirts which btw is like HUGE on him you saw. They gave him a childs med. 10-12 shirt on my little 3t man! LoL to cute though.. SO they were doing little drills and he was dribbling the ball and we were like whoa he has some natural talent well he went off course and landed in the big goal so cute! But then he said he was thirsty and hungry and was over it. He watched a bit and then when it came to play the other team he decided he was ready again lol too cute! All in all it ended up being a great day!! So fun!! ENjoy the pictures!!

Fall??

These Last few days have sure felt like fall! Cool nights and for almost a solid week now we have had our window's OPEN! Yes you read that correctly the window's are OPEN!!!!!! Although that is about to change we are suppose to be back in the 90's this week :-( Which doesn't thrill me but Can I just tell you all I am sooooo ready for Fall. If any of you know me personally you would know that i just LOVE FALL I love everything fall, pumpkin bread, leaves changing, Fall festivals, camping ( well learning to like it haha) and apple picking ahh just everything but my most Favorite thing about fall is COOL weather!! Taking the kids outside and not sweating to death..
We have had such a FUN summer! I'm so thankful for the time I have spent with the kiddies ! Our oldest Madyson starts Kindergarten in a little over a week! I can't believe she is that old already..It makes me want to cry but yet I'm so excited for her and her new adventure! I read at Heather 's blog which i just LOVE is praying with your little ones before they go off to school. Now I know this may see obvious I did pray FOR her but I did fail to pray WITH her! I am so excited to get this going, but what I loved most about her blog post is what she prayed about what they prayed about like having good attitudes and so on, but I def. was inspired so Thanks Heather for that post!!
I'm sooo excited that we are getting the opportunity to go to Disney World in just a few short weeks!! I'm not sure who is more excited Jayson and I or the kiddo's. It's our first "real" vacation since we have been married and it's going on 9 years! We have the privilege of going with my parents and My younger sister we have a villa in Old Key West! We just can't wait! We are so excited just thinking about it!! WE are so thankful we are able to do this! For those of you who don't know my dad has been sick the last 3 1/2 years with Prostate cancer and he is well enough right now to go and his dream was to take the kids meaning grand kids to Disney and he is getting to! This is HUGE for us and Makes me get all teary eyed just knowing how much fun we will have and seeing My dads face when he sees the kids' faces light up! It's been a LONG road the last year with his health and we are sooo thankful the good Lord has allowed for this trip to happen. So please keep my family in your prayers. I don't mention it hardly ever on here because it's something that's so hard for me to talk about let alone think about at times....
Well it's getting late and we have church in the morning! Just wanted to write a quick post and catch everyone back up! Hope all is well with you all
Blessings

Playing Catch Up

Madyson's Field Day

So much has happend since I last blogged. Mostly good and some Sad :-( But you know what God has been good through it all and continues to show us how faithful he is! Some things happen I believe in life to draw us closer to the Lord even when it seems so had to understand or to even wrap your mind around! Let's start with the good and I'll save the sad for another post!
Madyson had field day at school! She had a blast! But Man it was a HOT day!! The kids had a blast!!
They played all kinds of fun games!! Some had water and some just different obstacles!
This is What Bryce did played with our neighbor friend Julian at the water table!! The boys had so much fun

This was Meya the whole time she was so content and sweet sitting there smiling and playing with her toy!! What a blessing these little kids are!! God we thank you for these special blessings!!!

The last thing they did was have an ice cream party to finish off such a fun day!!!

A Trip to the Zoo!

My Sweet husband called me Friday from his office to let me know he planned a family trip for Saturday to the Zoo! We only live about 40 minutes from the Cape May County Zoo and it was a great day! It was a little on the overcast side but it actually made for a perfect day! We got subs and I packed some drinks and heading out of the house a little after 9! It was great because we got there just as it opened at 10 and stayed until about 11:30 then we got our picnic stuff out! As we were getting set up there were tons and tons of people coming in the the zoo! I'm so glad we went early. I can't believe I forgot to take pictures of our little picnic! But just as we were heading out the heavens opened up and it started pouring!!
So all in all it was a great day!
