Ella is 1!

It is crazy to think that our munchkins are now 3, 2 & 1! Life with kids that close in age is wonderful and altogether insane. ;-)

Our home is a zoo sometimes! But I pray it is a happy one. ;-)

Ella's 1st birthday was April 1! It was fun dressing her up in the special birthday dress and taking pictures like we did the others. :-) She is such a sweetheart and her happy giggles make us laugh. She adores her big sister and brother and grins when daddy gets home. She loves to sing, explore outside, snuggle, and eat chalk. (blah.) Oh, and she looooves chocolate.


Chloe: "Mum, we are going to sit here and watch the flowers grow."

Zachary: "Yes mum! We is."

Goals for 2013

This is my overarching desire for 2013...whether worshipping, cleaning, changing diapers, or playing with our littles. :-)

Christ with me,
Christ before me,
Christ me,
Christ in me,
Christ beneath me,
Christ above me,
Christ on my right,
Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down,
Christ when I sit down,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of every man who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me,
Christ in the ear that hears me.

- Saint Patrick of Ireland
