Tasha Barry

no I didn't know her but looking at everyone's memories I wish I had. Seems to me, from what I have read, the world has lost a true gem. Please pray for her and her family. Please pray for my dear friends, the Schicks, Sue and Josh Have posted about her
Such a terrible loss.

We are going camping at the end of the month. I am TOTALLY excited!!
I am already starting to pack little things here and there.
We are heading up to a place just before Chilliwack lake. We went the same time last year. It is a yearly tradition to go camping on or around my birthday. To top it off Phil has the whole week off. The first week of July. Cooper was so tiny our last trip. And I now have a KICKASS camera (in my opinon) and am looking forward to taking tons of pictures. I have two 1GB memory cards. That equals lots of pictures!! Will make sure my batteries are charged!
We are going with Michelle, Rod, Payton, Samara, Sue, Dennis, Joel (I think he is coming), my in laws Phil, Cooper and myself. Lots of fun!!
I am totally looking forward to it. I have three lists ready to go with at least two more that need to be written. I worry about being able to afford it but I am trusting Phil. It will be really neat to see Cooper this year. This was him last year:

this year he will be running around like crazy. Kinda worries me but there are a lot of people and his favorite Payton will be there. He just LOVES her!! LOL!! So this should be fun.....

I have gotten this before

but can't seem to find it in my book. I really believe God is trying to tell me something. Anyone know which Max Lucado book this is from?

Daily Christian Wisdom

God never promises to remove us from our struggles. He does promise, however, to change the way we look at them.

little sick man

Poor Cooper.
Yesterday at around 5pm I woke him up from his nap and he was HOT. I took his temperature and sure enough he had a temp of 102. Then he was eating dinner and acting TOTALLY fine but then he threw up. Not sure if it was a choke on a raisin (I gave him a light dinner) or what but I decided to stay home from study. That is the highest fever he had ever had.
then last night I went in to check on him and he felt hot again. But woke up when I was in there so I took his temp and it was down to 99. Better. Not gone though. So put him back to bed. This morning at 4:30 he woke up and I went in there and he was hot again. I even took the light sleeper (that had no feet) off him. Then we took his temperature. It was back up to 101.8, definately fighting something. Then he got up at 6:45 and we checked again and it was 99 something. But he sat with me and snuggled for almost a half hour. You know he is sick when he does that!
The good thing though is that he is running around and playing right now. Although he will come over for a sit down and a quick cuddle every so often. He is sucking back his really cold water. Which is good cause then I know he won't be dehydrated. I feel so bad for our kids when they are sick. It is one thing me being sick, which I am LOL, and another when it is a child that can't tell you what is wrong.
Pray for him to get better fast please.
thank you

so what the HELL is wrong with me!!

been in a funk the last couple days. Well maybe the last week but whatever you don't want to hear about all of that. You probably don't even want to read what I am going to say but I am gonna say it anyway.
Was out tonight and some of the moms were talking about how they lost 25 pounds right after delivery and were back into their pre-pregnancy clothes within a month. I gained 50 pounds with Cooper. It was my own fault. I haven't been eating proper. I didn't eat proper then.
I have lost 11 pounds SINCE HIS BIRTH. How stupid is that. What the HELL is my problem. I am trying really hard to cut my portions down now and to do taebo. Heck if it were up to me, which it isn't cause Cooper is still nursing, I just wouldn't bloody well eat.
I am not wanting rude or mean comments. If anyone comments anyway.
Just feeling down in the dumps and crappy about myself. And I don't want to talk about it. I push it down it will go away.
A friend told me I was beautiful. That God made me in His image and if I think I am ugly, do I think God is. I said of course not. Then she said then how can you be? God makes only beautiful and wonderful things and He doesn't make mistakes so you are beautiful. She told me to repeat that I am beautiful out loud in the mirror. I have yet to do that. I just don't believe it.
Going onto my second summer. I look and feel like crap. I hate my body. But I love my son and I would do it all over again in a heart beat for him.
I just hear and see these women get back to their prepregnancy weight and I can't help but wonder, so what the HELL is wrong with me!!

Cooper can say....


LOL! It is SO cute! Ever since he was tiny and first started solids, at 6 months, I would always say a prayer and thank God for his food and then end with, In Jesus' name we pray, Amen.
I wondered what the point was in saying it so young but I continued. Then yesterday at lunch I said the prayer and then said Amen. Cooper went 'amin'. Sue's Grandma heard it, and she can't hear all that well. She said, he said amen. I was like YAY! That means you heard it too. I wasn't crazy!
Then at dinner we said the same thing and Amen. He proceded to say it clearer then before. Then would even say it on command.
I love our son! He is SO smart!! You can see him trying to put words together. He is trying really, really hard to get the right word out.
Oh and his top right molar has poked through the surface and the top left is coming through. Getting so darn big!
