ok maybe not everyday

I'm thinking that I wont be posting everyday haha! Also, you will more than likely not be getting posts on the weekend, my weekends are entirely too busy for a blog update!

Ok so now to make up for lost time. Friday was an interesting time with the kiddos! It was a Friday for sure! We had Beef Ravioli and they thought the sauce was made for shampooing their hair! But since thats all I really remember about that day with them I guess it wasn't too bad! I laughed so thats always more helpful than getting worked up over it!

Now for the weekend. Saturday I slept in and it was wonderful! It was rainy and I didn't get out of bed until about 3pm! Lazy? Maybe but in my defense I haven't had a day like that in a really really long time! That night (10pm) I spontaneously jumped in ROAR's (Romance On A Rocketship) van and we took a journey to Fort Smith, Arkansas! (Oh the joys of being single and having nothing to hold you back!) This was a great trip! We had to go pick up their lights for tour (they leave April 7th). I have missed my dear friend Kasey so it was really great to spend some time with him and Ethan! We got home around 3am! And yes I even made it to church on Sunday!

Sunday was beautiful and I spent the day cleaning after we all went out for lunch after church of course (dear sweet Susie bought our lunch!).

Yesterday was an amazing Monday! The kids and I had lots of fun and the day flew by so fast! Ella and Jaxson were picked up by about 4:45 so Zion and I walked to the park! It. Was. So. Fun! Here are a couple pictures from our time at the park!

And now its nap time and nearing the end (well that depends all on how long Ella sleeps today). Thanks for reading!

Our day in pictures

Today is St. Patrick's Day! Yes I wore my green did you?!? Like I said I love pictures so I will be posting lots of them. Today I will show you mine and the kids day so far in pictures! (All of the pictures were taken on my iphone so they will not be the best of quality)

Ella was trying to problem solve. Her shoe kept getting stuck to the rug because of the velcro and she was trying to move away from the rug. I love to watch the wheels turn inside their heads as the problem solve!

                 Car check up time!                                                                                                   

During the cold months Amber taught them to warm their bottoms by the fire. We were burning trash and so they were warming their bottoms! 

We made Shamrock necklaces! 

Finger painting our Happy St. Patrick's Day Shamrocks! We LOVE to finger paint and we think its sooooo funny! :)

All this fun will make you tired! Jax taking a 10 min nap before lunch!

And now I am updating my blog, checking emails and Facebook, working on some things for Cornerstone and trying to stay awake during their nap time!

Thanks for checking out our day! Its really nice outside today so I can't wait to take them outside to play!

My blog

Ok so I think I have created and tried to start blogging close to 7 times and have never stuck with it. Maybe this time will be different! I think I have said that every time but I am really excited to start again and stick with it! I really do not feel like I have a lot of great things to say all the time but that is where my blog name comes into play. My blogger name is two-fold really, I love St. Francis of Assisi's quote at the top of my page because I believe that we as followers of Christ have a responsibility to live a life that preaches the Gospel to those around us. And when its necessary we use words and the second part of my blogger name is I believe the reason I did not do well with my previous blogs is I felt like I always had to update with profound thoughts or ideas but I have since learned that is not true. I LOVE taking pictures! (this is not on a professional level) So if you follow this blog you will see A LOT of pictures. I feel like this blog will be like my life in pictures. A picture is worth a thousand words right?
