Larry!!! Larry!!! Larry!!!

After many times at the river Larry finally gets his fish!!!! He tells me I have be re-instated as his fishing guide!
The two lures Larry and I caught our fish with were my experiment. One was lure tape bought from Ebay and the other was painted with metallic paint. Boy has he earned these photos!!!!!

Here he is.. Larry with his Coho at Zippermouth Creek!!!!

Went to Herman's Hole on the 21st of September with my buddy, Larry. We ran into Scott and Jenny there. Man, I love this picture of them! No fish for them either. This seems to be a rough year.
September 9th, 2008. One of many trips out with no fish! I just caught Larry here wiping away a tear.

I went to the Creative Zone last night with my mom and Joshua. What a nice relaxing look around. It was so fun. I could see Joshua's eyes just light up the minute we went in. He didn't even know where to start and I realized again that it has to be the greatest place in this town for our family to shop, including my mom! The whole time we shopped I was thinking, "This would be perfect for a Christmas present for ____!" And "Boy do I wish I had money to get ____ this!" So many thoughts and still no money!

We started just going through the birthday stuff and I had great ideas for Joel's and Joshua's parties coming up in the winter. Then we got to the LEGO, and I was reminded that Joel wants a LEGO party this year. He would be so amazed with the selection there! Then there was the scrapbooking stuff which I don't have much interest in but boy oh boy does my little man. He loves making cards and always wants a lot of fancy stickers to choose from. Then, the puzzles. We are working on one right now. It is 500 peices and is of Noah's Ark. When it is done we will have to get another tough one for Joshua to get going on. My mom bought us one of those puzzle rollers which has been just awesome! Then of course there are models, trains, machines, beads and everything else you can think of. My mom and I were looking at material as the boy's room is finally finished and now we need some curtains to hang and my mom is going to make them, she did such a good job on the last ones! Joshua didn't enjoy that so much but as we kept walking down the other side, his eyes lit up again. Every kind of crafting materials a person could want or need!

So, when all was said and done, my mom let Joshua get a foam craft that is a treasure box when it is put together. It is really great and he was so happy! 1 hour and 4 dollars later and we were out of there with all the excitement still in our heads. Now I can't stop thinking about all the awesome things we could get for the kids for Christmas for so little money! That excites me. Will post picture of the craft when we get to it, hopefully tonight.

What a cute dog, hey?

Thought I would post this cute picture of my lovely dog, Chee Chee. He is pretty cool now that he doesn't go #2 all over the house anymore!
So, I haven't been updating much lately because I have been a little down. There is a lot going on in our life. Some good, some scary. But God is taking care of us in the midst of it all.
My bro in law, Andrew mentioned that I have not said the outcome of Adam's health and he was wondering how he is. So am I! We have been waiting 2 months for a CT scan and we will be waiting quite a while longer since the hospital hasn't called for the appointment yet. It is a very hard wait. Adam is feeling fine though as he is on some anti inflammatories that he has been on for a month now. They are causing the inflammation to go so that there is not pain but we still have no idea what is causing the inflammation or if it is gone. So, we wait. Will update if we find anything out. Praying that the inflammation being gone is healing the problem that started it and that the CT will show nothing!
Other than that, a girlfriend of mine posted Psalm 23 on her blog and I was greatly blessed by it. So I thought that I would post it also. Those who know what else is going on in our life, maybe be praying. Thanks.

Psalm 23
The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
He leads me beside quiet waters,
He restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and love will follow me all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

First days

One week ago was Joshua's first day at school. He was so excited!!! My sister was out of town so I was caring for her boys in the early morning and they were with us for the walk to the school. They are pretty proud of their cousins too! Alex, Joshua, Eric on the walk to school. Annabelle and Joel didn't really want in the picture.

What a handsome boy! He is absolutely enjoying everything about school. It is his favourite thing in life I think.
And now he is a big boy so he gets his own desk! What a cool new experience!
And while he was at school, this is what Joel did. Played a little dress up with the little boys.
He was checking if the helmet was tight enough. Cute!
And then today! A great day for my beauty. Annabelle started kindergarten today and Joshua was so proud of her. They are in the same class and already Joshua has been showing his ability to take care of his girl. I love it!
On the walk to school. This is the cute outfit that Nana bought Annabelle for school. I absolutely adore it on her! Thanks Mom!
Off to play on the playground which she has played on numerous times before but today, there was just something different about it. It is hers now!
And Joshua helped her on and off her swing. So sweet.
Annabelle at her table where she sits right next to one of her good friends. It was a little hard for me to leave her, but was not hard for her to see me go. She is now in her element. I am so glad that my kids love school so much! It has been nothing but positive! What a blessing!
There is the update on life! Seriously people, if you want any of the lunch kits and stuff from Tupperware, Thursday is the last day so head on over to my Tupperware blog and check it all out!

Eph 5:19 Speaking to yourselves in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord.
This song is one of the songs I keep on standby to sing to myself when I really need it.

Happy Bithday to the most wonderful man I know!

I had to post this picture as I think it is so cute! This is 5 years ago and Adam looks so cute and giddy, wearing his Bob shirt and holding his princess a few minutes after she was born. It is hard to believe we have celebrated 9 of your birthdays together and I pray for many more. You are still the joy of my life, Love!
Happy 36th! I love you!

Get 'Er Done!!!!!!!!

After church Sunday, Charlene and the kids were busy at a party so I got busy on weights after making myself lunch. I worked on weights for just over 7 hours to make a total of 263 weights!!!!
