Be Still

Suprisingly, It has been a year since my last post. As if I do not have any time to update what is going on in our crazy life... I don't!! We are always doing something. Until tonight. I am feeling awfully sick, cozied up on the couch in my comfy sweatshirt, drinking a cup of coffee (that my amazing husband prepared for me).

I love every second that I am able to spend with my beautiful girls, but I look forward to the hour that I am able to sit down, prop up my feet and call it a day. It's funny... even if we had more time in the day, I think I would still feel rushed and overwhelmed. I need to learn how to relax. I love to be on the go, and I have seen that I have taught Tristyn that if we are not out of the house then we are obviously not doing anything fun. I really want to change that. When we wake up in the morning and when we go to bed at night the first words out of her mouth are what are we doing today?, or what are we doing tomorrow? Just once I want to say, absolutely nothing!!!!! I know that would not go over to well.

The Lord tells us "don't worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today's trouble is enough for today." Matthew 6:25. "Be still, and know that I am God..."Psalm 46:10.
I guess the truth is that I LOVE BEING BUSY!!!! I do not like to be lazy. I love to be productive with my day. Get up, work out (when I can), get ready, get the girls ready and move'm out.

It is time to be still. Time to slow down. I need to Take a much-needed break to reflect on God and His greatness, His love and His power. My relationship with the Lord and my family is so worth being 'lazy' once in a while.

Pumpkin Patch

We took the girls to a pumpkin patch last weekend. We bought a pumpkin and Tristyn helped me clean it out. She was both disgusted and fascinated at the same time. Here are a few pictures from the weekend.

Liz has been taking our pictures since Tristyn was a newborn. cara was such a good girl during the shoot. My friend Jaci made the blue tutu and both headbands. Check out her website at She is very creative! Here are the many faces of Cara.

Yes, we are still here!!! We have been super busy over the last 2 months. I can't believe it has been that long since I have posted. Well, Cara is 3 months old, and growing like crazy! Her last doctors appointment she was 12lbs. 4 oz. She will be going back in a week or so for her 3 month check up.

Cara was dedicated on the 27th of October and cried through the entire thing. That's my girl!! Tristyn is being such a good big sister. She is very helpful for mommy and daddy. Yesterday she started to interact more with Cara. She laid on the floor with her and was talking to her and playing with her toys. Today she was using Cara as a patient and giving her pretend shots and listening to her heart beat, and taking her blood pressure. I wonder if we are going to have a doctor in the family!

Life is great with two children. I am totally blessed. Of course we have difficult times, but all in all we are loving every second of it!

Tristyn drew me and grampy all by herself!

Cara's baby dedication

What a doll!
