Our big find!

So we went to our local Rescue mission store the other day in search of a new dryer as ours has been dead for over 2 weeks. (Not fun at all) Well luckily we found one, but as we were about to leave I found the prettiest couch which I now realize I have not taken a pic of yet. :)
So we now have a real couch for the first time since we got married. And the futon pictured below I have put up for sale in the news review. I hope it sells for more then we paid for the couch.
That would be awesome!!!

Tackle it Tuesday

Tackle It Tuesday Meme
Okay so I know my Tuesday is far more than halfway over!
I have decided to do a tackle today anyway because I am not achieving anything and hopefully posting this will inspire me to do so!
So my tackle for whats left of today is to go and get my kitchen completely finished. My DH was kind enough to help me clean out the fridge as well as move the microwave last week when he was off for a few days. We really got alot done and I just need to finish it up. Dishes finished, sweeping, mopping, clean out under the kitchen sink!
So here goes nothing.

The Diaper Covers

So here are some of the diaper covers I made for the new baby!

They turned out really cute and I am planning on making a bunch to have for sale at the spring fair this year.

Baby Haven

So I don't think I ever posted these!

Here he is the newest little man, Haven Emanuel!
My Timmy Boy wondered off with the actual images so these are the only ones I have, I took them real quick with our camera when we got home. Good thing I did.

Pregnancy and Life

So I spent the last 2 days, at least when i was home sewing new diaper covers for Caleb and the new little man. Those tiny covers are the cutest. Once I get them back from a friend (Thanks Shae) who is putting snaps on them I will have to post a picture.
Now I just have to make some medium sized ones but I ran out of the fold over elastic so I will have to reorder before I can sew anymore. :)

I am getting those pregnancy feelings of needing to achieve something. I need my house clean, organized. Things are starting to bother me, you know like the paint needs touched up it seems like everywhere, and I notice every imperfection that would really just take a few minutes (Or more likely hours) to fix if I just sat down and worked on it.

Anyway I have around 3 months left to wait and hopefully in that time I will get some real things accomplished. I love the feeling of motivation and always wish it would last forever. As I am normally more unmotivated.

Also I am going crazy thinking about all the things in between this time and the baby.
Thanksgiving, Christmas, New years, 3 Mops meetings, My girls B-day (The day before baby is due). This time of year is wonderful but also can be very stressful so I am trying to do my best to be prepared.

Vacation '07

So here they are, A few pics from our family vacation this summer. We had so much fun. We went to Portland, Oregon. Visited Oaks amusement park, The Oregon Zoo, Chuck-E-Cheese, OMSI, and hung out at the hotel. It is so nice to get time to spend as a family, I strongly encourage it. :)

Verse for Thought

We started a study on the book Shepherding a Child's Heart. Actually our pastor asked us to host it for our church.

Here are a few verses from this weeks study that really made me think.

Proverbs 4:23
Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.

Proverbs 22:15
Folly is bound up in the heart of a child, but the rod of discipline will drive it far from him.

Matthew 15:8
"These people honor me with there lips, but their hearts are far from me.

The author points out that we are not to be simply changing behaviour in our children but changing there heart. These verses as well as many others that he gives illustrate how behaviour issues stem from the heart. Something I should already know, and yet I found myself realizing that I do often discipline simply to stop bad behaviour rather then to reach out and change there heart!

Whats up?

So life has gotten crazy in the last few weeks! Oh wait maybe my life is just always crazy, I'm not really sure.

Our car is broken down and we are waiting for a family friend to work on it for us as we are too broke to get it done at a shop. Our bus is also acting up but still driving, although we don't know if we should be driving it.

Last week our dryer also decided to die on us. So we are now on the lookout for a dryer as well.

Some good news is we finally got our printer to work after months of no printing capabilities. :)

Also MOPS started back up this last tuesday and it went really well. I was amazed by all the new faces and it is always fun to see all the new babies each year. We painted welcome signs for our front doors and I was happy that the majority of the moms seemed to enjoy the craft.

We are starting a study tonight for our church on Shepherding a Childs Heart, by Tedd Tripp. Hopefully it goes well, and I learn alot from it as well as everyone else. I am really excited so far as the book seems very good and I love that he gives so many bible verse references.

I have about a million pictures I have been wanting to post yet never seem to find the time. Maybe soon I will actually do that!

Oh and last but certainly not least we had our ultrasound and found out we are expecting another boy. Baby #4 will give us 1 girl and 3 boys.
His name will be Haven Emmanuel!
