Bring on Christmas!!!!

Last weekends trip to Portland was a blast. It was an amazing event and I can't wait until next year. I loved hearing Natalie Grant speak and she is the most beautiful singer. When we got back our small group got together for a Samaritan's Purse wrapping party and the kids had a ton of fun putting together boxes for Operation Christmas Child.

We had a great Thanksgiving and then yesterday we went to get the tree and last night we decorated up the homestead for the holidays. I have a crazy couple weeks ahead with final projects and final exams. I am so looking forward to my Christmas break so I can relax a little. I feel like my life is just one big whirlwind these days. Hopefully I can catch up with all my blog buddies when I get some free time:)

On the hunt for the perfect trees!!!!!

Gotta go do some studying before we watch the Huskies stomp on the Cougs in the Apple Cup tonight. Sorry is my favorite color but my husband has demanded that we are only to see purple in the house today.

Go Dawgs!!!!!

Disney on Ice...

Tonight I took my niece, Emma, to Disney on Ice Princess Wishes. I lucked out and was able to find seats right on the ice so the view was fantastic and it made us feel like we were part of the show. I had bad luck with my camera batteries so I borrowed a couple batteries from the gal sitting next to me but every shot I would take of Emma she would close her eyes. Just like this!Oh will just have to live in our memories. My sister did get one shot of the two of us when we got back home so at least I have that for the scrapbook.
Plus, I was able to download other peoples photos that they posted on line of the actual show. I just love the internet!!!!

Fun times!!!!

A New Perspective

I have been so overwhelmed lately with school, my job at the church, being a mom, wife, etc......I was feeling sorry for myself and then I got an email this morning from a friend who just got back from a trip with two other of my friends. They went to Bangkok and Cambodia with World Concern and specifically were there to educate, help with the problem of child trafficking (child sex slaves) which is rampant in that part of the world and share the love of Jesus. Talk about I needed that slap in the face this morning. It is so amazing to me how God's timing is so perfect. I need to stop complaining about my little worries and focus on my blessings and how I can make this world a better place when I rely on my amazing God. To hear the stories about people who have so little, have endured so much pain (many of their friends and families murdered in the 70's) and yet they are thankful and are truly dependent upon God. If you want to hear more about their trip with a lot of amazing pictures click here.
