Our cute kids

Sariah and Ben were so cute today at the store. This was their first time riding together like this.

That kinda day

In trying to get the groceries out of the car, on of the bags ripped. It fell in the garage... On the concrete... Busting 2 jars of spaghetti.

Thankfully the other 4 in that bag survived.

But yeah it's been that kinda day.

Slow poke

Sometimes I can be so slow with my projects. I had this great idea for artwork in Ben's room. Well I actually finished them probably 3 months ago, but umm yeah they were still sitting on my desk waiting to be hung.

So this week it finally happened. I got out the hammer and just put them up. I think they turned out pretty cute and go perfect with his bedding.


Wearing these makes it a little hard to type.

While I'm up

I'm up with Ben and thought I might as well blog something.

Let's go with Sariah's current dogs running.

Since we went to the Royal's baseball game about a month ago, she's been obsessed. I mean asks for it multiple times a day obsessed.

For those of you unfamiliar with the hot dog derby a quick explanation. They have 3 people dressed in hot dog suits-ketchup, mustard, and relish. They race on the field.

You can YouTube it. Which we have. And we watch multiple times a day.

In case you're wondering, mustard wins just ask Sariah.

It cracks me up. That this tiny moment from the game has so strongly impacted her. She's so funny.

Lately I've been sad since it is summer people slack on their blogs. I include myself in that. But I still like to read them even when I'm not writing. So I get bummed when there is nothing new posted.

So while I can't change how often others write, I can write more often in mine.

So tonight a little journalling. It was a nice Sunday. We only went to part of church because James needed to leave early. He drove down to scout camp tonight because his brother is receiving something big down there. But church was really nice. I felt the Spirit and just had reconfirmed to me that God knows and loves me. We sat behind my parents and part way through Sariah said I want to go sit with papa (my dad). Seeing her go climb up next to him just brought tears to my eyes. She has such a love for him and asks to see him all the time. I'm trying to capture as much as I can on video or photos but mostly I just try to live and really be in that moment. Really appreciating this precious time we have with my dad. I have felt so blessed to have him for so much longer than we expected. One of the hardest things for me was knowing that my kids wouldn't "know" him. But I have been blessed. I do not know how much Sariah will remember but I know that right now she KNOWS her Papa. And she loves him greatly. In this way my prayers have been answered.
