A Spring Makeover and more!

Here's my version of a spring makeover: painting my toenails! Hope you weren't looking for some radical new hairdo or something.

Yes, I know that I didn't "stay in the lines" while painting my toenails, but that how I do it. Then after a few showers, the paint on the outside gets worn off and voila, I've got perfectly painted toenails. Besides our weather reports are predicting snow, so I don't think I'll be wearing sandals anytime soon. (All comments about my feet will promptly be deleted!)


This is the view I saw outside my kitchen window a few mornings ago. It's hard to be upset about being up early when you get to see something like this. Pink sunrises and sunsets always make me think of Felicity in Heaven. I can only imagine her view trumps mine!


How's this for brotherly love? They love to cuddle but they also love to argue with each other. Elijah at 2.5 hasn't mastered the art of arguing, so he just bites when he gets really upset. Elijah's been in underwear now for the past week and a half! Woohoo! (He still wears a diaper over his underwear during naps and at night though.) He's tells me he's "holding it up" when he's holding it in. I'm so blessed!

Rachel,
I always think of Samuel also when I see a sunset. Just think of him and Felicity up there together in the Lord's presence. Won't it be nice when we can join them? Thinking of you today! Keep resting in HIM.

Yeah for underwear!

I like the signature. I have the instructions for how to do it (and to do a custom background), but I haven't gotten around to it yet...
maybe someday :)

That picture of the sky is absolutely beautiful! Only God could make such beauty. Isn't wonderful when your child can use the potty! Saves a lot of $$$$$.
Your boys are so sweet!

Okay, so here's a tip about the polish, that works similarly to the shower. Really lotion up your toes around the nails so they are good and greasy. Once the polish dries, the mess outside the lines will rub right off with little effort!

And those sunrises are beautiful. There were a few days in a row that the timing was just right to look and see a beautiful sunrise in my rearview mirror on the way to work. That is a good way to start the day. It just makes me think God is waving and saying "Hello daughter, I love you, have a great day!"
