we made a lot of memories this week. My kids amaze me each and every day! I thnk my God for giving them to me! i can't wait to see what God does with each one of them this coming year! they each seem to be maturing quickly. School is getting easier in a way. We began a new advent and kept the old one!
WE are busy preparing for the holidays around here. Photo shoots are being completed and Christmas pictures are being sent out! Baking has begun!

What a busy week! We had company with us for the entire week, My husband's brother who is terminally ill stayed with us through the holiday and our children were able to connect with him before he goes into the hospital for test every day next week included what may be open heart surgery. As we said our good bys, we formed a circle holding hands and prayed for him. It was a week in which i found myself being still before the Lord asking questions that i may never know the answers to. Many don't know but we found out we expecting yet again, and by week 5 I was spotting again. Very different from the first miscarriage, and yet similar in so many ways. We have 7 children. One day we will meet our last two. But for now Jesus gets to enjoy the company of them.
Although I found myself thinking a lot of these last two we will have to wait to see, i found myself rejoicing in the victories we saw 6 years ago this week and continue to experience. Our one daughter who had cancer, celebrated her 6th year anniversary from the surgery date! God has been so faithful and gracious to us! So when the questions came to my mind about the 2 we don't see for a short time i kept reminding myself to rejoice in the 5 we see every day, the 5 who make this house alive, crazy, chaotic, loving, joyful, LOUD! For in a split second Jesus could call anyone of them home.
So i rejoice in the victories of our 7 year old already being an over comer of brain cancer. I rejoice in a husband who has hit bumps and struggles through out this past year but is in love with His Savior and the Word just pours out of his mouth once again! He is quick to pray, quick to discipline but now it's with love and he quickly brings the children to his side and shows the love of Jesus in the moment they are disobedient!
WE ended the week with decorating the tree only to find that we didn't have enough lights! I had to just go with the flow because the children could care less! AHHH the memories. today the tree is fully lite!
