I have taken a big step of faith in a new position. Whenever I think about it with my head I get so stressed and overwhelmed at all their is to do. I just have to step back and know God has given me the anointing to do it and the grace. I am just so thankful to have the Holy Spirit leading me and guiding me because without him I would be a mess. I am telling you that this position is one in which everything I do all the glory will go to God because he is the one doing it not me. He is the one giving me direction and ideas. I know that only through him will things get to where they need to be. God does not lead us to do things that we can just do on our own. We need him and I am so thankful for him and his leading!

Recent Desire

So lately I have been really desiring to get in really good shape. I really want a personal trainer but for now I'm just going to do things at home as I have time. Anyone know of some really good exercises? I mean I want to be trained really hard. I enjoy hard, intense workouts. I have been kinda doing the 30 day shred but I need more than that. I like to be able to really feel that I am working out hard! Anyways, any suggestions are welcome or if someone wants to be my personal trainer I'll take it!

It's Been Awhile

Wow, it has been a super long time since I have even attempted to blog. I need to update my blog! I have really been wanting to blog again so I'm going to start! I probably will write a lot about our kids, our life and our desires! Hopefully, my next post will be soon!

It's Been Awhile

It has been awhile since I have last blogged. So of course I will blog about Jeremiah again! Lately, when I have been putting him down for bed he looks up at me and says, "bible" this means that he wants me to sing him, "Jesus loves me!" I just think it is so cute because he calls it "bible." This has happened for multiple nights in a row now so all I have to listen for his the word "bible" and that means "mom, start singing that Jesus loves me!"

Love Boy

On Thursday when I went to pick up Jeremiah his teacher informed me
that our little boy was kissing a girl. She said that he dipped her
back....opened his mouth as wide and big as possible.....and planted
three smoocheroos. On the fourth one he got rejected; she hit him!

We finally cut Jeremiah's hair last night! His hair was getting to be quite long. I prefer shorter haircuts so Jake got out the clippers and away we went. I must say it was a challenge keeping Jeremiah still. I had to break out all of the songs I sing with the preschoolers and a few snacks. I love his hair now!
Above are the before and after pictures. The back is where you can tell the most difference! Unfortunately we don't really have any proof of that.

On Friday my dad and his fiance came down to visit us. We started the night by going to our church for our great mystery dinner theater. Jake won the costume contest!!! He is so creative! On Saturday we went out to eat and did a little shopping. Sunday, we went to church and got ready for the week! The best thing for me was that Jake surprised me with BEAUTIFUL roses! He is such an amazing husband! I am so thankful for him! What did you all do for Valentine's day?

Church Family

When Jake and I first moved down here we struggled with not having all our family near us. We thought about moving back many, many times. Then we started to ask God for friends like family. Oh man, did he ever answer that prayer. He is SO faithful! Our church is So AWESOME! I mean so many people in our church are just like our family!It is AMAZING! Everyone in our church is so caring and loving! I just lOVE it! God is just SO faithful! He met that desire of ours! We KNOW that we need to be here and God brought us EVERYTHING we need! I love him! He is so awesome!

Silly Boy

This afternoon when Jeremiah got up from his nap he had a little snack. After his snack he went under our pub table and squatted down. A few minutes later he looks up at me with his cute little eyes and says, "poo-poo." I was thinking does he even know what that means even though we try to tell him every time we change him. So I proceeded to check his diaper and what do you know there was poo-poo!I was a very proud mom!
Another little story for you. Jeremiah's sippy cup was up on the counter and I guess he was thirsty because he was reaching way up high for it and whinning. I said, "Jeremiah we don't whine, you say please." He then obeyed quickly and said, " peeeaas!" I love it! He is so much fun! I know I say that a lot but he is!

Sweet Boy

Tonight, Jeremiah and I were doing our normal bed time routine. I started rocking him as I usually do because I love this time with him. He laid his head on me and then he picked his head up, opened his mouth wide and leaned in for a kiss! I LOVE it when he does that. It is so special.
Another thing we discovered about Jeremiah is that he is becoming a climbing boy. Last night as we were watching a basketball game we look over and see that Jeremiah has opened up our coffee table drawer climbed into that and then climbed on top of the coffee table. He then decided that he did not want to be on top anymore so he climbed back into the drawer and was just sitting there! He also likes to climb on the couch and try to sit on the end table. It is amazing how in one day a child just decides he wants to climb! I love watching Jeremiah grow!

Excercise Challenge

So have most of you have already read on Jake's blog we have some physical goals that we are going to be accomplishing this year. I am really excited about this and can't wait to beat Jake!!!! For myself I will be working out a whole lot more in order to lose my desired amount of weight. Jake is desiring to gain some pounds (man, must be rough)! So, check back and see how we are doing!!!

Lately, our little Jeremiah has been trying to get away with certain behaviors. The cool thing is that every time Jake and I tell Jeremiah no he runs to us crying. He runs to us and then he wants to hug us. He is just so sweet. It makes you feel bad for discipling him but it is something that needs to be done. I am so blessed to have such a sweet little boy who does not like to disappoint his parents!
