Baseball Update!

Yeah......Dylan's baseball team is on a roll we have won 2 in a row. Last night the boys played so well and they had a lot of fun doing it. I brought bubble gum for all the boys and they all hit amazing and they thought it was the gum. I guess I will be buying gum for every game.
Hope you all have plans to enjoy this nice weather that we are supposed to have.

Our Weekend!

Our weekend was very busy.....we had Dylan's baseball game, which I had to coach because Derrick was at a men's retreat for church all weekend. The team did great and we even won. I think it was the coaching!!! Then on Sunday we went up to Darrington to visit my aunts, uncles, and cousins on my mom's side of the family. It was my uncle's 70th birthday. The kids had a blast playing outside and I got to sit and visit with my cousins. It was a lot of fun. I included some pictures of Dylan in his game. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed the sunshine. I know that I am enjoying this wonderful weather.

Easter and Bunnies

We had a wonderful Easter despite the rain...our Easter egg hunt at church still was a success. On Easter weekend we decided to get the boys bunnies. Dylan had been asking for one for awhile and so we decided to just get one. That didn't last long because after we got her home, Owen then wanted one. They are soooo cute and playful. I hope that everyone had a great Easter weekend and spent a lot of time with their families. I posted pictures of the 2 newest members of our family. Enjoy!!!

This one is Owen's her name is Ruby Rue

This one is Dylan's her name is Graycee Gray

Good Friday

We went to church last night for a Good Friday service. We saw a movie by Max Lucado called Resurrection. It was a movie based on a Roman soldiers view of the death and resurrection of Jesus. If you have a chance to see it you should. I have been reading the book He chose the nails written by Max Lucado and there is a scripture in there that I wanted to share.

Long ago, even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. His unchanging plan has always been to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. And this gave him great pleasure. So we praise God for the wonderful kindness he has poured out on us because we belong to his dearly loved son. He is so rich in kindness that he purchased our freedom through the blood of his son, and our sins are forgiven....God's secret plan has now been revealed to us; it is a plan centered on Christ, designed long ago according to his good pleasure. And this is his plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christ- everything in heaven and on earth. Furthermore, because of Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us from the beginning, and all things happen just as he decided long ago.
Ephesians 1:4-7, 9-11 NLT

This scripture makes me feel special knowing that God chose me and he knows the plans that he has for me even when I may not know. I hope that you can reflect on what it means to you.
Happy Easter and Good Friday...

Spring Break

We headed to Seaside Oregon over Spring Break. It was a nice break from regular hectic life but the weather wasn't that great and Derrick couldn't come because he had to work. The boys and I still had a wonderful time at the beach and at the pool. Here are some pictures from our trip.
