Micah Moo…

You are two! Twenty-four whole months old and the absolutely, positively, most joyful and vibrant child I know! Thank God you are ours.โ˜บ๏ธ 

This past year has been a fun one. You  just started to walk and we have been torturing you with pleading for months and months trying to get those cute little feet to step, step, step. We all knew you were just too content being held and crawling. You’re a smart one to soak up that baby phase… You do only get to experience it once after all. 

Speaking of being are the most affectionate child! In the grocery cart you give me constant hugs and sometimes just hold your arms around me the whole trip. I am not complaining…it’s perfect. You snuggle, nuzzle, smooch, and hold us as much as you can and we all take it joyfully. Well, E isn’t alllllways game but he’s coming around. ๐Ÿ˜‰ 

Food must be your love language even though I’ve never officially seen that as a love language. It’s got to be right now. We can’t drive by food establishments or walk by a picnic table without the saddest crocodile tears streaming down your face. Especially your beloved “alay” (CFA). Gotta eat that chicken. 

 You adore slides, Elmo, “Mick-Mouse”, Cookie Monster (which you’ll be for Halloween, any type of sports ball but specifically basketballs, books, answering the phone, animals, your daddy, milk, dancing, singing, being really happy loud, planes, trains, being upside down and climbing. 

You really don’t like people in masks. Tears. Or the word “no”. Tears. Being “left out”. TEARS. I promise if you ever do have asthma I’ll give you an inhaler..but for now I just cannot. Sorry moo-moo. ๐Ÿ˜ข 

  If you can’t tell from some of the previous pics you definitely have some good Sauer sass in you. Knucks to you my boy. You looooooove to do what you shouldn’t and give us a perfect little smirk as you do. I say “us” but really it’s with me. You deeply enjoy our sassy banter.. But I do too and I love you for the ability to duplicate my expressions. 

There’s so much more we love about you but who has nine years to read it all. Bottom line, you’re pretty incredible and we are so lucky to be your mom and dad.

Turning four:Cars style

if you have a boy you may know the back and forth of their favorite things…for us it’s a constant cycle of trains, planes, and Cars (the movie). As we approached a fourth birthday, E had three specifics we’d never experienced before…one was a theme, two was a “things I’m hoping for” list, and three was a request that we not invite a lot of people so he’s not overwhelmed (his words). Blue Mater was the requested theme…because you know, Mater is blue for all of four seconds in Cars so naturally that’s easy to find. ๐Ÿ˜‰ we settled on Lightning and Mater and he got a little surprise from my uber talented friend at the party.  

BLUE MATER. It may be a small cookie but it was a HUGE hit and has continued to be talked about. 

Several friends (that I’d already invited) couldn’t make the party so he was thrilled be the amount of people. It was a fun time and the best part is always that the family joins us too! 

I’ll upload more pics from the real camera later.. 

All in all it was a wonderful time.

Weekend to Rememberย 

a couple of our super awesome friends allowed us to go to a marriage conference a couple weekends ago by taking our two littles in addition to theirs. We had so much fun and even whether marriage is going great or you’re in a slump, having a weekend away to really focus on each other is so good. We took away a deeper closeness and renewed devotion to trying to love each other in a Christ like way. Selfless love is hard, right!?

So here is a glimpse of our free time where we acted like children ๐Ÿ˜‰ 







 Share the love!

visitor fun.

Way back in the hot days of summer we had the opportunity to have visitors in our house! It’s always fun to have an extra face or two…an extra play friend…someone to catch up with. It’s just fun and we wish we had these visitors here more often!

To blog or not to blog…that is still the question.

It’s been quite the silent period for poor sweet dizzies… and yet it doesn’t really bother me to not be putting a single word out for people to see. I have, however lost my primary form of processing and I’ve become quite bad at updating all of the people we love who do not live in the same state.. Basically most everyone would fit into that category.

I had logged on one day to post and was told once again that I needed to buy more space or something for picture posting and so I sat on that for a few months. Is it really worth it? Well…my answer for now is yes! I really do enjoy saying weird stuff with no eyes (that I can see) looking back at me weirdly. I enjoy letting family and friends peek into our world when they want to, and most importantly I have an entire year of E’s life documented and ready to print into a book on here and I need to catch up and do the same for Micah. Baby books are great but I really like having all of this in a book to see. So for at least two months I will be back here…updating my small little world of readers on all things about our fam.

So yay! I’m sure you are thrilled and were on pins and needles waiting to know what I’d do. ๐Ÿ˜‰ And once I get my sweet husband to show me how to add more data or whatever, I will start strategizing on how to post the 9 bagillion pictures I have. Whoo! But for now here are a few faves I was looking back on.

Have a happy Thursday!

Dreams undone

There once was a girl in love. Or so she thought and hoped with the limited knowledge of love she had that it was love. It was not.
That same girl was torn apart. From lack of dreams, a heart un mended from years of pain, a blur of nights that helped her let go and forget what was real. Why choose reality when you can waste your cares away?
Inhibitions gone, insecurity raging on…there she was.
She knew them all but was all alone. They knew not the demons..the war within. The past that reminded her that she will never be good enough.
And so she wasn’t.
At an all time low, He came beside her. the One who had been with her, never letting her go or leaving her alone reached out again.
She didn’t know why but followed His lead. She heard His Word, His voice. She answered His call.
Come follow Me.
And then she smiled. And she breathed liked she never had and she knew. That broken girl could be buried. She could be thought of fondly for she had a significant impact on the future…but she was no longer living. And yet she was so alive.
From that point on she was wrecked and refined. And it was beautiful. It was healing. It was all she never wanted and all she ever needed.
And life moved on.
Real love came and real love stayed.
And He held her hand as she praised, as she called out His name, as she wept over loss and shattered, shallow dreams. He was there. Never letting her go. He reminded her of His unending love. Of a purpose beyond what her heart can imagine so He brings to light what her mind cannot fathom.
This life here on earth it’s not about me. Not about the visible life but the eternal love and invisible might of His glory. Made known to man. And He continues to reach out His hand…through me, through you, through all the saints who see Him too.
Thank you God for every day. Every step along your plan, the purpose that is out of my hands.
Take all of the girl that You made new. Help me continue this life living only for you.
I am yours.
