Proverbs for 2009‏....

This was sent to me by my wonderful mother-in-love! Thought it was a great way to start 2009....

1. Faith is the ability to not panic.

2. If you worry, you didn't pray. If you prayed, don't worry.

3. As a child of God, prayer is kinda like calling home every day.

4. Blessed are the flexible, for they shall not be bent out of shape.

5. When we get tangled up in our problems, be still. God wants us to be still so He can untangle the knot.

6. Do the math. Count your blessings.

7. God wants spiritual fruit, not religious nuts.

8. Dear God: I have a problem. It's me.

9. Silence is often misinterpreted, but never misquoted.

10. Laugh every day - it's like inner jogging.

11. The most important things in your home are the people.

12. Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional.

13. There is no key to happiness. The door is always open. Come on in.

14. A grudge is a heavy thing to carry.

15. He who dies with the most toys is still dead.

16. We do not remember days but moments. Life moves too fast so enjoy your precious moments.

17. Nothing is real to you until you experience it; otherwise it's just hearsay.

18. It's all right to sit on your pity pot every now and again. Just be sure to flush when you are done.

19. Surviving and living your life successfully requires courage. The goals and dreams you're seeking require courage and risk-taking. Learn from the turtle, it only makes progress when it sticks out its neck.

20. Be more concerned with your character than your reputation. Your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely what others think you are. No matter the storm, when you are with God, there's always a rainbow waiting. Leave gentle fingerprints on the soul of another for the angels to read. I don't want to get to the end of my life and find that I lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well

Baby Andrew...

Well, with all this blogging that I am doing today about babies, I of course had to do one for baby Andrew...her name has yet been! This sweet little thing I do not have a picture of to post but she will make her debut in late April! Her mommy is one of my very best friends. I can not wait to meet her. I know that she is going to be just as beautiful as her mommy! I pray that this sweetheart enters this world with ease and grace:) She has been prayed for for a long time and is anxiously being waited for! I just love the thought of all these new babies! God is sooooo good and such a miracle worker! Jaclyn and Craig....I pray for you and this baby every chance I get! Please tell her how much her Aunt Burt loves her!!! I love you Ernie!!!

Baby Em...

As I was going through a box of pictures today, I came across this picture of baby Emily Grace...

The picture took me to my knees. I sat there looking at this beautiful baby girl. So sweet and tiny! I thought back to when I held and kissed on her while her mommy was taking a shower and how she had the hiccups when Kendra was putting lotion on her! All these sweet memories make me miss her even more! It is hard to believe that this past August our baby Em would have been 6 years is just so hard to imagine! Looking at this picture also made me pray for Emily's mommy and daddy. I pray that the Lord continues to bless them with sweet memories of Em and that they remember how much we all love them and her!

Speaking of pictures...Christmas, Kendra gave me some new photos of the boys. They are just too cute...I had to share them with you!!! These are Emily's brothers...Garrett-5 and Gavin- 2 1/2...too cute! I love them all!

Caroline Grace...

In the busy rush of cleaning the house after Christmas and after our week long trip, I thought I would take a few moments and say a special prayer for Caroline Grace. Caroline is due to make her appearance March 5th, 2009! I can not wait to see Miss Caroline Grace! I pray that the Lord will continue to bless Caroline and her mommy throughout the rest of the pregnancy. I pray that this sweet baby will have a safe and easy birth! She is already abundantly loved by all her friends and family and of course her Double Digit Aunts! Baby are loved and prayed for everyday! I look forward to holding and loving on you...I love you...Aunt Brittany!

We're home....

Wow! After a week of being in Vernon, we are finally home! I so enjoyed seeing friends and family and having that "extra" help with the kids, but I am also so excited about climbing into my own bed tonight!!!

Being home for the holidays makes me so greatful for my friends and family! Josh, the kids and I are so loved and that is just the most amazing feeling in the world! We are so blessed for each and everyone in our lives and seeing them makes me miss them even more!!!

This Christmas we were able to go spend a couple of days at the Great Wolf Lodge in Grapevine! It is a lodge/indoor water park! It was sooooo amazing! Thank you Ritchey's for the wonderful memories!!! Swimming the day after Christmas is turely a treat;)!!!

As I reflect back over the holidays, I say a prayer for everyone that has touched my life in some way or another! I am so blessed for each and everyone of you! May God bless each of you just as you have blessed me and my family! I love you all!

5 years ago today God showed me HIS love even more by making me a mommy for the first time! 5 years ago today, after a rough pregnancy and 4 1/2 weeks early, we welcomed Jaydon Chisholm into the world! He was the littlest thing that I had ever seen! He had the sweetest smile and the biggest eyes! I could not believe how much love I had for this one little thing! Jaydon has brought us so much joy over these past 5 years! He is smart, funny, sarcastic, loving, Godly, sweet, precious, athletic and most of all...healthy! As you read this, please say a prayer for Jaydon as he grows to be the young man that God has called him to be and please pray for me and Josh as we learn to raise this little boy just as God has called us to do! We love you precious Jaydon! Happy 5th Birthday!

Our sleeping beauty...

Well once again Kye has found an unusual way to sleep. We dress her for bed, clean her room, read our books, say our prayers, give our kisses and we leave her tucked into her bed nice and cozy with a clean room. When I go back to check on her this is what I see....
