In honor of Earth Day, I want to remind us of Genesis 1:1. It was God who created this earth that we are celebrating, so I suggest today, instead of celebrating the earth, celebrate the God who created the earth! This is our Father's World!

...ok come on now seriously...this nasty weather is starting to get old...fast! Last weekend was just a teaser come back sun!!! Nevertheless the snow/wind/hail and rain couldnt stop us from enjoying our day at the Spring Fair!! At first we contemplated not going but around 11ish it started to clear up and we thought oh why not! We're Washingtonians, whats a little rain! So we packed our stuff, layered up, and off we went! My mom came with us too which made Jacobs day!! 95% of the time we were there, it was clear and mild out...there was one bout of rain and we just went to the animals in the barn when that happened!! So all in all it was worth the risk...and it gave us something to do for the day!! My mom took Jacob from the fair so we could get ready for dinner at our friends house tonight...I was responsible for dessert so I went and picked up the stuff for that while Steven went to the church to work on some electrical stuff...the break was very relaxing and it was so nice to be able to focus on one task and not have to wonder what Jacob was getting into from there we enjoyed a great dinner with 3 other couples and had a great time of fellowship!! Not to mention, I got to play with their 7lb pomeranian!! Oh My Goodness!! I am in love My parents offered to just take Jacob for the night so we could get some stuff done so as Steven worked on Ava's closet and molding while I got her baskets completed!! They are a light wood colored basket with yellow liners that my mom made and I tied a coral-ish thick ribbon around them...(will post pics very soon!) I was debating on the wall letters...for one reason and one reason only...I wanted to make 100% sure we are going to use Ava Rose...which we are and so Christia..if you are reading this..it's a go for those adorable letters one of the last remaining projects I am responsible for. But believe it or not we're about 90% done and its so relieving!! I know a lot of people aren't into the "nursery" thing, or its not a high priority on the list but for some reason I've always enjoyed decorating baby's rooms...if we ever had the extra money and I had more time I'd love to start my own business doing just that. It will probably never happen, but heck I can dream right?? I've had so much fun doing Ava's room and can't wait to get the "Big Boy Bed" and furnitur in order to finish his. In all actuality, my jobs pretty easy...its Steven who really changes the rooms as well as my mom who can sew anything so its just me putting the concept together and "accessorizing!" regardless its my own little "passion" and I might as well have my say now before Ava and Jacob can choose their own "style" hehe!! I took Jake to the mall yesterday just to get out and we had a great time, we got a corn dog and played in the kids area as well as picked up a couple smaller sized outfits for Ava () just want to make sure we have enough.. she has a lot of 9month + clothing but not a whole lot of infant sizes and since Im not having a shower I wanted to be extra prepared!! I personally know of 3 baby showers and 1 bridal shower this weekend as well as 1 more bridal shower Im going to next weekend!! Wow!! Tis that time of year for weddings!! I cant believe Steven and I will be celebrating our 4th wedding anniversary on Thursday...and today marked the day 7 years ago when we started dating!! I cant believe it...I was only 17 and now 2 houses later and 2 kids later here we are, happier than ever!!! Speaking of my hard working man...time to go bring him some ice cream and relax...kid free!!

*Just for this morning, I will leave the dishes in the sink, and let you teach me how to put that puzzle of yours together.
*Just for this afternoon, I will turn off the phone and keep the computer off, and sit with you in the backyard and blow bubbles.
*Just for this afternoon, I will not yell once, not even a tiny grumble when you scream and whine for the ice cream truck and I will buy you one if he comes by.
*Just for this afternoon, I won't worry about what you are going to be when you grow up, or second guess every decisi on I have made where you are concerned.
*Just for this afternoon, I will let you help me bake cookies, and I won't stand over you trying to fix them.*Just for this afternoon, I will take us to McDonald's and buy us both a Happy Meal soyou can have both toys.
*Just for this evening, I will hold you in my arms and tell you a story about how you were born and how much I love you.
*Just for this evening, I will let you splash in the tub and not get angry.*Just for this evening, I will let you stay up late while we sit on the porch and count all the stars.
*Just for this evening, I will snuggle beside you for hours, and miss my favorite TV shows.*Just for this evening when I run my finger through your hair as you pray, I will simply begrateful that GOD has given me the greatest gift ever given.
*I will think about the mothers and fathers who are searching for their missing children, the mothers and fathers who are visiting their children's graves instead of their bedrooms, and mothers and fathers who are in hospital rooms watching their children suffer senselessly, and screaming inside that they can't handle it anymore.
*And when I kiss you good night I will hold you a little tighter, a little longer. It is then, that I will thank GOD for you, and ask Him for nothing, except one more day.
