Where have we been?

All over.

Brooks is now one as of April 21st, which blows my mind.

I have been working from home since mid December, which has been such an incredible blessing.

I spent ten days in Washington visiting family, enjoying my parents, and welcoming a new cousin into the world (big congrats to Kelly and Ben, and welcome to the world little Cade)

...and I just got back from an incredible Ransomed Heart Captivating retreat where I spent quality time with the Lord, met some incredible women, and actually made it through (although barely) four days without Brooks and Bryant.

I thought I would have all the time in the world to blog and eat bon bons while "working" at home (see post natal blog about stay at home moms for reference), but as any other SAHM knows, that just isn't the case. My time is consumed with playing with my boy, trying to stay on top of the house work and be a good Titus 2 wifey-poo, my new found love of sewing/creating, and getting outside to enjoy this amazing place we live (when it isn't dumping snow).

In other news, in December we got a call from my parents letting us know my mom was diagnosed with breast cancer, a call no child ever, ever wants to receive, but to sum it up in an inappropriately short paragraph: praise the Lord, the doctors found it at stage 0, were able to remove the lump without a full mastectomy, she made it through six weeks of radiation while spending the week days three hours from home in Wenatchee, and is now on the road to a full recovery.

Praise the Lord from who all blessings flow!

As you can probably imagine, I have a ton of pictures to post, but I may just put them on a picasa album so they don't take up so much space. I have had a lot of fun with my new camera.

Thanks for checking in, even though I am embarrassed to say, it has been over four months since I have done the same.

All my best, and tremendous blessings to you, friends,


Becs and the boys

I HAVE SO MISSED YOU!!! What in the world, can't do that again! ;) That little boy of yours is too cute for words, and we all need some updated pictures, please. In all your spare time that is. One bon bon at a time, now! ;) Ha! Anyhow, glad to catch up with you, and what a blessing that your mom's cancer was discovered so early! Wonderful, wonderful news! So glad to hear! Love ya girl!

Happy you're back! I wondered if you had given it up :)
