sorry it’s been SOOOO long since I posted last! I’ve been waiting for something big to post about…. well not really. I just haven’t had much time! I hope this was just the post you were looking for! :D

So I keep thinking we’ve child proofed our home (but they keep getting in)….. cause there is another on it’s way!!!!! Ok ok… we really haven’t child proofed our home! :)  We love children! hence there is another on it’s way! I bet you are asking, what about the house?! Well it seems very fitting since every other time we’ve done a major house reno I’ve been pregnant! So forward we go! It’ll just be another year and another kid to love! And a bigger house just in time! So are you wondering…. when? Around the end of June 2009! 
Congrats all you grandparents and aunts and uncles! Nieces and Nephews! 

I have tons of pictures. I’ll post them soon…. maybe tonight I will have time on the computer! sisters are always looking for more pictures… so be aware! lol…. oh tonight is bible study…. so… i prolly won’t be on…


dying for pictures from my sis across the world…. but likely not tomorrow! I’ll try not to be too sad!

They are there… had a few hours of sleep… it’s all good… closer closer…. :D

I’m going to do better at blogging daily! My little sister is going on an adventure! I’ve always known she would adopt! and THIS IS THE TIME! and we are so excited! I was dreaming about the *see ya later* hugs as my other little sis would call them! I can’t wait to see who they bring home! How God works out this plan for the GOOD! So to keep little sis updated I’ll be posting here what I would call and tell her! LOL sorry for all you who may have to hear it twice! ;) 

to go with you!

Phillipians 4:13 For I can do everything through Christ,[c] who gives me strength.

Romnas 8: 28-30 . 28 And we know that God causes everything to work together[m] for the good of those who love God and are called according to his purpose for them.29 For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. 30 And having chosen them, he called them to come to him. And having called them, he gave them right standing with himself. And having given them right standing, he gave them his glory.

I found the cutest book at the thrift store yesterday! OH MY! It’s so cute! It’s called Hi, I’m Straw Beary by Melody Carlson It’s on the fruit of the spirit gentleness! they have a whole series and I want them ALL they are SOOOOO sweet!

I am flipping out with stress and excitement about this! There is so much to talk about… i hope i get to share more…. the attic may have an additional door to make that back room another bed room… which would be fab! :) those are the only changes that i can think to mention… that aren’t on the plan… the other thing is on each of the floor plans… the first picture is of our current floor plan… :) we are completely gutting the old part… now wondering if we will need to get an apartment… praying about what is best for us with that one…. sigh…. from what it seems there will not be a way to live in the old part anymore… which was our plan… it looks like after they dig the whole… we will be down to two rooms. so i may  have to pack up everything! sigh… we’ll see what the builder says!


all my friends who don’t live in iowa… don’t flip out about how big this is… remember ben does this for a living and the only thing we will hire done in the concrete/framing/roofing… plumbing/electrical inspection and whole house inspection…. and it’s cheaper to live here! come on out! :)  lol

Did you know there were oceans in Iowa? well there aren’t… but it sure looks like it when WHOLE fields are flooded!

amazing… the water was TO THE ROAD…. and any more rain and this road will be flooded also. Thankfully we really aren’t close to anything. But many people are affected and many crops…..
