New Dicovery

Have you ever really truely wondered what it means to be a woman? I started this bible study at the church and we are studying the book Captivating by John & Stasi Elderedge. It is really good. Last week I learned that Woman was the crown/ the final touch to God's great maserpeice. Some times as women we don't value oursevles but more so because we don't always feel valued. We want to be pursued and come #1 in our mans life and that doesn't always happen. This book is teaching how to discover that woman was also made in God's image and that God also has the desire's that we as women do - to be prusued and to be loved.
Here is some thing that we studied from the book in week one.
Unseen, Unsought and Uncertain
I know i am not alone in this nagging sence of failing to measure up, a feeling of not being good enough as a woman. Every woman I've ever met feels it - something deeper than just the sense of failing at what she daoes . An underlying, gut feeling of failing at who she is. I am not enough, and , I am too much at the same time.......

Week 2
She is the crescendo, the final astonishing work of God. Woman. In one last flourish creation comes to a finish not with Adam, but with Eve. She is the master's finishing touch.

Isn't this so cool? I love the oppertunity to dicover who I am and why God has truely created me. Some times as a stay at home mom you don't always feel worthy and pretty and so on. Alot of what you do goes unnoticed and some times unappreciated. It is a role that is extermaly down played in society today yet the most important job you will ever do! Nothing will ever compare to the job you do in raising the next generation. I count myself so forunate to be at home with my children. I just want to encourage any other moms wheather stay at home or you work you are a woman and some one loves you he is persuing your heart right now! Jesus loves you and what you do doesn't go unnoticed by him. He also desires to have you persue him with your whole heart. When you do, you will be captivated in his love and his heart, as he will be captivated in yours!!!

Peace for a Day

Wow can't believe it's almost been a month again. Life seems to take off running and doesn't know when to stop!
Keenen & Rees are back to school, now . Keenen just started Gr.3 and Rees in Kindergarten. Rees goes full days Mon & Wed & every other friday. When they are both gone my home is actually peaceful - I have time to spend with Grace & Desi.
I am currently triing to work at potty training Grace - the other day I said to her I think you laid a turd in you diaper. She covered her mouth then said GET OUT TURTLE!! I laughed so hard. As challanging as 2 can be it is still a fun age - the dicoveries they make about them sevles and the growth in their vocab is truely amazing.
It's kinda a fun having just the little two at home for a while. I just can't get over how quiet my home is especially right now because they are both asleep! With that said this needs to be a short blog cause I gotta take advantage of having an hour just to me! TTFN!

Little Boys

Why do little boys play with their penis? This is a habbit that absolutly drives me mental. And all boys do it.
My brother and sister-in-law ' pastors grandson was over visiting Canada from England. HE was holding himself,and was asked if he had to use the bathroom, he said yes. So he did. After returning outside he was still holding him self, when his gramma asked if he had used the bathroom he said yes. She then asked why he was still holding him self, he said that he liked to play with his (here's a new one) WINKY but only in Cananda!! We barbarrack Canandians have turned a prim and proper Brit into a winky wiggler! I love beinging Canadian eh?
My friend's little boy also has this habbit and when he was asked why he constantly does it, he responed that he likes to wiggle it because it feels good! Personally my boys are told to go to the bath room if they need to hold themselves because I just don't like it. The wrost is when you see a grwn man full out re adjust him self in plan view of your self. Yes, this has even happened to me and it's not my husband doing the adjusting.... ewehhhhhhhhhhh

Nite on the Town

SO last nite I got to go out for a little bit all by myself aka NO KIDS!!!!! It was my sister in laws stagette. We went to BP's and had dinner and then GLOW bowling and I had alot of fun. Before I went out Grace decided to get in to the shampoo (this is her 3rd offence with it in less than 2 weeks) at least this time it was in the tub with no water and not on my carpet. She poured 3/4 of a bottle in to the tub and was like skating around in it. As funny as it sounds it is rather frustrating because it is so wasteful. After arriving late for supper (with 4 kids I'm lucky to arrive any where on time no matter how hard I try) I decided to have and alcoholic beverage at this point in my day I NEEDED IT! I was very frazzeled, so I had a strawberry margarita and it was sooooooooooo good I even boston sized it! About 1/4 of my way in to it I decided that I needed water too cause it was already going to my head. Shows how often I drink. Anyways I didn't get drunk I paced myself and I only had 1 which is good. You can totally go out and have fun and only have a drink. Glow bowling was alot of fun even though i suck royally. We bowled like 2 games and I think my scores were in the 60's or 70's that is how much I suck. I really like to through gutter balls there my fav. Any ways just wanted to brag a little about my nite off. My bro's wedding is in 13 days coming up fast!

Scrambling with Life

Hey! Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be a scrambled egg? Not that I have alot of time to sit and think about it, it was just an analligy that came to me now. Life can get so busy that you woral around and around in a cup so to speak and you don't stop. We just run and run from the moment we get up in the morning til the time we actually put our heads on the pillow for sleep and what ever hour we manage to get to bed. Then there are those of us who still have to get up in the middle of the night for a baby or a pee or both. Yesterday I ran like crazy to Red Deer and back then to drop the boyz off at a B-day party and back then to pick them up and at home I hardly sat even though I was trying to scrap book I was up and down and swerlling all around. Any ways that's my egg story. Interesting hey?
Warning as you children get older the sibling rivalry gets a whole lot more physical - regardless if you tollerate it or not. Yesterday I had to break up a fight between all 3 of the older kids Rees was on Keeenen and Grace felt she could help by pulling Ress's hair for him. any ways TTFN

Guilty of not Blogging

Sorry to any one who has checked in resently and not found an update. We have been crazy busy you know one of me 4 of them! So what new? We travelled to BC for our summer holidays this past weekend and enoyed some nice HOT weather. Darren parents live in the south okanagan so we visited there as well as in Kelowna. I saw a few of my friends and for those who read this it was sure good to see you all. oUr 10 year high school reunion is coming up in August. Where the last 10 years have gone is beyond me I geuss I been to busy HAVING BABIES to notice.
So here is an embarsing thing I haven't blogged for so long that I had to reset my password because I could not remember my old one. don't worry I wrote it down this time!
So a family up date Keenen is on his way to grade 3 in September, he had a very good report card and Darren and I are proud of his progress in school thus far. Rees is going to kindergarden in Sept. He spent his first amount of signifigant time away from me after the trip to Disneyland I wasn't sure if he would want to go to BC with his grand parents a week before Darren & I went out. But he did and so did Keenen so I actually only had Grace and Desten for a week again. Although they are the most physically demanding kids the peace and quiet from no fighting between the sibs was was nice. Grace is op to her usual tricks of a 2 year old causing all kinds of trouble. She is in the process of potty training and when she poops say after a nap instead of calling me to change her she does it her self and then I get to clean up poo[ of the carpet on her roon totally not a good trade off - how ever she doesn't seem to get that if she would call me I would come and change her and then she wouldn't get in trouble for getting crap all over her room. so annoying. My favorate pass times includ cleaning up crap off my carpet DAILY - NOT!!! Today she suck one of the boys plastic hockey puckes in my oven and I went to turn my oven on for supper and instead of chicken we had melted plastic! I have to be on top of that girl every minute she is awake. Any ways the joys of 2! Desten is doing awesome he is rolling a bit and started solid foods today and boy is he ever ready. The arms and legs are a going and I'm sure he was saying just give me that spoon mom I can do it way faster. He has also graduated to bathing in the big tub and will be moving in to the crib some time this week. well i need to run I am tired and my morning will come all to soon take care to all my readers and I'll try to blog again soon!!!

Down to 2

The past five days have been wonderful for the most part. My 2 oldest kids were taken on a trip to Disneyland in California, USA by my in-laws! Thus leaving me behind with only half the amount of children and responsibility!!! It has been a real treat to be able to relax some even though the two I have are the most physically demanding two. My daughter, Grace turned 2 last week and we all know it. She is figuring out new things left and right some good some bad but all required to have some one on top of what she is doing at all times! She has mastered the open of doors (bad real bad) which is leading to a whole new era of what she can destroy in her tornado ways! I plan to invest into a few of those slippery door knob things to keep her OUT! Of trouble.
Desi
is almost able to roll over and he is getting so huge! I spoke with Keenen and Rees on the phone a couple days ago and they are of course having so much fun at Disney. They got to meet Mickey, Goofy and Pluto as well as some of the princesses which Keenen didn't seem overly impressed about. I'll know all about there trip tommorrow when they get home! any ways TTFN!
