Multitude Monday goes to 100!

So awesome to reflect back over the short few weeks of this blog to see the many blessings God has brought to us.
We hope you are counting your many blessings this week and every day too :)

91- A Wonderful Conference weekend!! * If you want to hear the great ministry and gospel, recordings are available at www.orangewoodgospelhall.com

92- meeting new friends at conference

93- thankful for amazing gospel... yep at conference :)

94- the cutest pink princess dress on our princess ... WISH i got a pic of her in it! Hoping someone did and  I can steal it. It was a 1 time wear only - as it was super tulle-y and a few spots tore as it was reallllly full and long. It had been hanging in my closet since I was 18!!! I bought it for a Sunday School girl, who didnt have a fancy dress for a special church occasion, but it didnt work out for her to wear it, so I kept it hoping I would have  a princess someday.... and 11 years later it was worn. :)

95- Class #3 of Masters in session. Hard! Time consuming! But thankful sooo thankful Matt is also schooling, so we can both be crabby about school together :)

96- An encouraging, potentially life changing email.

97- another tooth lost in our *siigghh* big kiddo's mouth. More teeth gone = Harrison is growing. Bittersweet.

98- the sweet soft Amens after nightly prayers..

99- super bowl sunday fast approaching

100- Our juicer! Our fridge looks like the produce aisle....but excited to drink some healthy *ahem* GROSS smelling & looking, cleansing drinks :)


8 weeks until a new Hebert joins us our partay of 4!

Multitude Monday

Thankfulness abounds here!
We are thankful for....

81- Healthy baby boy! 30 week check up today and 3d Ultrasound showed a beautiful chubby hand covering his face. A shy Hebert? Oxymoron? But maybe.... Also he is measuring 4 pounds, and is in the 95%tile ...

82- Nesting has taken over. Organizing and cleaning has hit my house like a craze & I love it.

83- MLK Day- a great day to remember a great man, and to enjoy a day off with my amazing fam.

84- Arizona Winters. I think  I can be thankful for this blessing EVERY single day. Getting a tan while at the park with the kiddos in January, is so fab!

85- Mom is coming in 2 days!

86- Conference baking is almost DONE... I need  a 2nd freezer. That is a big feat, as I have to bring 14 dzn bars/cookies, 4 pies (Unbaked- YAY for Costco!!), 5 dzn cupcakes. Cupcakes are my passion. So these babies are dyed bright orange, bright purple and bright teal. The frosting. Ahh. BRIGHT neon pink Rainbow chip. Way too excited to frost come Friday :)

87- Conference is in 4 days! We are really excited to hear God's word all weekend

88- Lexi! Our awesome sitter who gets Hannah all day of Saturday's Confernece.

89- Harrison ... pretended to take meds so that Hannah aka SUPER drama queen when sick, would take her pink princess meds happily.

90- Grandparents who challenge Harrison to learn scriptures. Our goal: memorize 1st 5 verses of John 3. Any takers? We want to have it done in 2 weeks :) Harrison gets the Sugar Creek Gang DVD set when done ( shh :)) If you have yet to view those... they are a GREAT series- morals and values in kids movies seem like a thing of the past. But these movies make them come alive again & our kids love them. Score!!

Have a wonderful week!

Its finally COLD in AZ!

Multitude Monday

Blessings to begin this week! What have you been blessed with lately?

70- “Jesus Calling”- this mini devotional book has just the right amount of encouragement no matter what time I read it!

71- Sciatic Pain- yes weird to be thankful for this, but just another reminder that our baby boy Hebert is growing fast! 29 weeks today and I feel un-preg except the nerve pain every now and then and kicks and flutters J

72- Children’s Meetings have begun again! This does create a rather rushed and insane Monday schedule, but knowing the kids get a fun gospel message and another chance to hang with Christian friends is a Plus! Watching Hannah raise her hand like a big kid and call out songs is too sweet too J Her faves are Oh I know It  and I’m in the Lord’s Army.

73- WINTER has hit AZ!! Temps were 27 this morning and high of 45 today! Yay for real winter weather.

74- A salon trip for my 1st ever gel manicure! Where have I been!?! I always would get tips put on, but gel mani is au naturalle and should last just as long.

75- PATRIOTS won their 1st play off game!! Another nail biter is coming up Sunday.

76- Birthday parties this coming weekend for Harrison to attend. Although I am NOT a fan of giving up our family time- our too short weekend- for parties, I love that Harrison has nice friends that want to include him. So we will go to two, back to back.

77- My neon pink dress that I get to wear to a wedding Friday!! Yay for warmer weather coming...70 degrees by Friday- AZ weather is amazing!!!

78- My mom heading our way in a week+.

79- Movie date with my love! Love that the theater by us has childcare for our kiddos!

80- New bedroom furniture!

Winter Blessings

Multitude Monday... a couple days late :) When life is on hold- like our vay kay to FL - and we had no GCU and no work... I could blog on time... then school & work hit and life becomes a BLUR yet again :)

This week's blessings:
60- Free coffee and donuts at Dunkin because of all the awesome GCards we got for Christmas!
61- Christmas celebration with my in laws after our vay kay... so we got to be spoiled AGAIN... and we REALLY enjoyed our time as we REALLY missed them when we went away.
62- Work. Every morning Harrison & I get to ride together to school - and I love going to work each day. I love that Harrison pops in throughout the day for kisses. My class loves him and thinks he is the coolest 2nd grader, I have to agree :)
63- Valentine's Decorations and Candy! I L.O.V.E the bright pink and hearts EVERYWHERE!! This is one of my fave holidays- besides my birthday and Xmas :)
64- An awesome Dad who spends lots of time assembling Lego sets with Harrison. ( My patience level for the itty bitty pieces is pretty much at 0!)
65-A girly girl Hannah! All of a sudden our daughter who wears "Thomas the Choo Choo" panties- yes BOYS- instead of GIRL ones, has totally turned PRINCESS on us!! She twirls and spins and dances and loves lip gloss
66- An upcoming wedding where we will get to see many friends from far away!
67- New perfume samples from Sephora- LOVE that place! I am sooo indecisive with perfume and there is a new one - Gold Sugar which is AMAZING & Bulgari Coral. Which one!?
68- Build a Bear! The joy it brings our family is probably just what they wanted it to be when they market to sucker parents like us.
69- Baby Boy H! We get to see another ultrasound tomorrow at 28 weeks... and this is Hannah's 1st trip to the Baby Doc. She will be excited! Or run around crazy as our office has insane wait times.
70- Marriage. We are going on our 9th year, and seriously, as I was writing a Psych Paper on Effects of Divorce on Children- 1 out of 2 marriages ENDS. Break my heart! I am so thankful for our commitment to each other but also for our commitment to Christ. I truly believes that makes ALL the difference!
