It's been a while...

I have been a bad blogger lately! I haven't even gotten on to read anybody else's posts in a while. Usually even I don't post anything, I at least stay caught up on all of you! First let me say that I'm am praying for a newborn that was mentioned on Robyn's, Shannon's and MckMama's blogs. Here's the button so you can click over and pray as well.

I've really been into reading other people's blogs lately, people that I don't even know. There's a whole world out there that I wasn't aware of. Here I thought people wrote blogs for their friends and families to read, but several blogs I've looked at they've actually become a little famous, or at least very well known, simply from their blogs, and most of them became well-known because they asked for prayer and word spread. I am always amazed at the power of prayer!
Now my thoughts on my IRL (in real life) friends' blogs that I'm getting caught up on: Joanna, your boys are so funny! I love reading what they say, and I LOVE that you declared kitchen duty! Let me know how it turns out! We may have to try that too! Robyn--I actually laughed out loud at you getting on to someone else's kid at the mall (we play there too..shh)! No kidding: I am always tempted to tell kids to stop running or stop fighting at Wal-Mart. It's a just a habit I guess. Oh and I love the family pics! The girls' outfits are so cute!!! Jennifer--I am so glad you were able to come to decision. I hate that you had to spend all that money, but I pray that God give you peace about your decision. I'm glad it's every other weekend and not 1st, 3rd, and 5th. Does that mean that they'll be with you at the same time as Branden and Shyanne? I will pray for them. And as Beau's teacher, I hope that they study for their tests and don't leave their binder or AR book at their daddy's. That's what always seems to happen! Shannon--Your Ella is sooo cute! I keep looking at her pictures! I'm so glad she is healthy and all is well. Emily looks like she's going to be a great big sister! I love the baby sister gown! Too cute! Lisa--Wow! A stay-at-home-mom-to-be and foster parents! That's great! I didn't know you ever were foster parents! I guess that's what losing touch after college will do for you! I'm glad we're back in touch now, and I wish you the best of luck on your ventures! Be sure to keep us posted!
Well not much has been going on in our world lately. We spent yesterday doing a major overhaul on the overgrown eyesore landscaping that was the front of our house. We went totally bare bones on all of it and hopefully this spring beautiful plants will emerge. We also built our first fire! We really felt like country folk out there burning leaves! We decided that it was better than when we lived in the city limits and had to bag our yard waste to be hauled off by waste management.

Thanks for the shout-out! I'm not the best about blogging and spend way more time catching up on everyone else. I'm glad that you all got the housing issue worked out. We are lucky that we got our house for a steal here. We also went bare in our backyard, deciding we would rather it be more kid-friendly and easy to take care of. I hope you're enjoying MLK day. Maybe we should try to meet up sometime?

You are too sweet! I don't know how you do it with 3. I can barely handle 2. I hope Layton's asthma is doing better with the new meds. I had no idea he had it so bad. I'll keep him in my prayers.
