We have missed you!

Jersey's Joy! Going Bye Bye in the Car!

Sorry for not posting... we have been very busy! The Youth takes up most of our free time! We had the middle school sleepover last weekend, and we have been recovering ever since! It looks like this weekend will be just me and my hubby! I love every minute we spend with the youth, but it sure is nice to have some alone time, ya know? I will do a better time keeping in touch! I am watching Disney's Enchanted while cleaning up... this is one of my all time favs! God is helping me become the housewife He created me to be... if you know me at all, then you know I need all the help I can get in this area.

P.S. I got a prayer journal! I was having a little trouble in this area, but the prayer journal is a huge blessing! I highly recommend them! :)

I have missed my camera!!!!!!!!

Here are some pictures from today and yesterday...

I was trying to be creative... My Lobster's ring is around "Love never fails."

My mom got a new dog, Belle, here she is hiding from Jersey and Angelica, (my mom's other dog)

Belle and Jersey meet for the first time... she loved him right away... it took him a little bit... something about new puppies gets to all dogs I have noticed! :)

Look at that attitude! All I said was, "Where's Belle," and this was her response! lol

Sorry, but I had to put this on here, (for my mom to see at least). Jersey is smelling the grass, Belle is smelling Jersey and Angelica is smelling Belle... come on, this is pretty funny!

We went for a walk and Jersey just KNOWS what "backgrounds" will make a good picture... he loves posing! :)

See, cool background, cute pose! :)

Jersey and Daddy!

Please excuse the hideous jacket... I needed pockets... this thing is like 3 sizes too big...

I am in love with this picture! Pretty cool, huh?

My Lobster spotted a tractor and wanted to show it to Jersey... I said ok only so I could get a pic... yes, I know, we need a baby! :)

A few posts ago I had a picture of me and Jersey's game... well, this is his and Daddy's game... Jersey looks through the steps to My Lobster below... there Daddy extends his hand up and Jersey gets to give kisses... when Daddy isn't home it is kinda sad when Jersey looks for him and realizes he is not there to kiss!

As I am gushing over my husband and child ;) I am listening to my i tunes, and "None like you" is on... Seriously... No matter how much I love My Lobster, or Jersey... there is none like Jesus and He is ALL I need! I am continuously working to put Christ first in my life. I always tell My Lobster  and Jersey how much I love them, (don't laugh, I do talk to Jersey), but do I tell Jesus enough that I love Him! NO! I will always fall short of that, I know... but I am making a conscious effort to do so!

"There is none like You! No one else could touch my heart like You do! I could search for all eternity long and find, there is none like YOU!"

Prayer Pups

As many of you may have noticed, I have a Prayer Pups comic strip on the bottom of my blog that updates everyday. This was today's and I just love it! It is so true! This little comic has so much truth in it, it is ridiculous! :) I highly recommend visiting the Prayer Pups website and the Prayer Pups blog. Not only will children love it, but like I said it is full of Truth, so adults will love it too! Like I said, just read this comic!

Photoshop Fun

Mr. Bigglesworth?

Yes, this is my precious Jersey... who only 2 posts and 6 hours ago, was so adorable. Since Texas summer is so unruly we had to shave him for his own comfort! He loves it, but he is a little ashamed that he resembles Mr. Bigglesworth from Austin Powers!

Jersey is the sweetest dog in the history of the universe! I can put my mouth up to his when he is eating and nothing... I can take stuff out of his mouth and nothing! He has only growled twice in his whole life... the vet and the groomer. Well, today at the groomers he went over so peacefully. I go to pick him up and the groomer says that he has angry issues! WHAT? My little angel? He just wasn't happy. I also think that since they were so stressed (the other groomer quit) that they didn't take their time to calm him.

Anyway, he is still the greatest dog in the history of the world! Even if he does look like Mr. Bigglesworth! :)

MY CAMERA IS FIXED!!!!! I have been going CRAZY since November!!!!!!!

Crazy thing: I think there is a rabid raccoon lurking around our apartment! SCARY! I told the front office, but I don't think they will contact animal control. If Jersey gets rabies, I'll be sooooo angry!!!!!

Anyway, here are a few pictures of me and my son, Jersey! :) Hooray for up to date pictures!!!!!!

Here Jersey is watching a passerby... I love him... he is so cute...

Jersey and I have a game... he runs up to the flight of stairs ahead of me, and he sticks his head through the bars and gives me kisses... isn't it cute how he grabs for my hand...

Jersey IS human... see...he can stand upright! :)

Jersey lost his treat under the stove... he is SO cute!

Isn't he precious?

Mommy and me! :) (yes, we need to have a human child!) lol

There's holes in the floor of Heaven ♥

So it looks like we will hit Tstorms in Galveston! Well, on the bright side, We paid good money for the resort room, and we will get our money's worth! :) We are celebrating our anniversary, so being stuck inside is no problem if you catch my drift... ;)

PS, it also rained on our wedding day, good luck right? Well, my sister died 6 months before our wedding, so I remembered the song, "There's Holes in the floor of Heaven." It made me think of Tracie and it made me smile, and I was thankful that it rained.
Well, Sunday we were opening presents and I came to a card my G'ma wrote me back in 2002. That was the year she died... knowing she would not see me get married, she wrote me a wedding card... well since my sister had just died, I assumed I would not get weepy over my G'ma's card... it had been almost 5 years, so it was easier to deal with than my sister. Well, I opened the card and guess what was the first thing I read... "There's holes in the floor of Heaven!" I teared up, and I was SO THANKFUL that it did rain on our day. If it hadn't then her card would have been sweet, but not as meaningful... BUT since it did rain, and the card was written 5 years prior, it was just another sign that there IS a GOD, and He is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!

Our anniversary weekend... ♥

Monday will be our 1 year Wedding Anniversary! AND, Sunday (the day before) will be our 2 year anniversary of meeting! I can't believe it has only been 2 years since we met! April 6 2006 was the day I met and fell in love with My Lobster! Everyone thought we were crazy for getting married so fast.. we met April 6 2006 and were married April 7 2007! BUT when God brings you together, then what is the point in waiting? I am so happy that I get to spend the rest of my life with My !Lobster He is an amazing man of God, an amazing husband and a future amazing daddy!

I was listening to "Rebecca Lynn" by Bryan White today and the bridge really describes our relationship: "When love is wrong, it dies, and that's the way it goes. But when its right, your love grows!" Couldn't be more true!

Tomorrow My Lobster is taking me to the San Louis resort in Galveston for the weekend! My camera is in the shop so I won't have pictures! :( Maybe I'll have to buy a disposable camera, (terrible quality, I know, but I WANT pictures)! Then on Monday we are going to go to the Taste of Texas for an anniversary dinner! I haven't been there since I was nine and on a field trip, and My Lobster has never been there!

It is crazy to me to think back to 2 years ago where I was in my life, to where I am now! God is so amazing, and He continues to bless me with way more than I could ever deserve!

For your enjoyment, here is our (pictorial) love story...

These were our profile pictures when we met online at Yahoo personals... I was embarrassed to admit this at first, but now I don't care! :) April 6 2006

My Lobster came down to finally meet me in person mid May 2006. We were already in love, so this was a very nerve wracking meeting, but it was a wonderful weekend, (the long distant relationship continued until December 2006).

He proposed on August 21, 2006 at City Hall in Sugar Land, (that first weekend in May we had our first kiss there)! ♥

April 7 2007, we became husband and wife.... our lives began!!!!!!!!
