Did I tell you I'm going on vacation?

Have I told you lately that I'm going on vacation?

Do you think that I'm excited?

Is it possible that this is the first time in almost 4 years that Husband has gotten to be completely away from his job for more than a couple of days a time?

Could it be that D-Man will be seeing the beach for the first time ever?

Do you think my pregnant body is excited about being in a swimsuit?

Stay tuned...

Forget-me-Not Friday

I don't have much time...

Today is the final day of VBS...

Vacation is fast approaching...

Here's what D-Man has been saying...

1.) D-Man was getting out of the car the other day and he told me he had "fancy legs." When I asked what that meant, he said it meant he could get out of the car by himself. Wow...I call that growing up and making momma sad and he calls it fancy legs. Interesting...

2.) We were having dinner/swimming at a friend's house the other night and D-Man told a little girl that was there that they were getting married and then proceeded to pretend a diving toy was a diamond ring and gave it to her. All I can say is that the diving toy was big, so maybe he has good taste in big diamonds...but not for 30 years because he can't date until he is 34 (at least).

3.) As I'm sure you have gathered, VBS is taking place this week at our church. Everyday, I ask the teachers from every grade to pick a "kid of the day" and they get a cool crocodile necklace. This momma was very proud when yesterday she learned that D-Man was selected "kid of the day" in his preschool class of 18 kids. When I asked him to explain to Husband later why he got the award, he simply said, "Because I was the only kid at VBS." My dear D-Man, if you were the only kid at VBS, then momma needs not be the director ever again.

That's all...happy weekend...I will be sleeping!

Pink or Blue?

Well...it's official...I have neglected the blog.

I know, I know, I know. You all have been beside yourself wondering where I have been, what I've been up to and how I have been feeling. You feel something missing each and everyday that I don't give you a mind boggling post, don't you?

I apologize, that's really all that I can say. I'm tired, I'm pregnant, it's hot, VBS has been consuming all my time and did I mention I'm pregnant?

Anyway, to catch you up on all the happenings here at the D House...

1.) We leave for vacation in exactly 9 day. I cannot wait. It can't come soon enough.

2.). VBS is in full swing! We've had more kiddos this year than last and can't wait to see what God does in the lives of these kids.

3.) D-Man very much enjoyed t-ball this summer and wishes that he had a game every night (mom doesn't, though...8 games in one season is enough).

4.) Did I mention we leave for vacation in 9 days?

5.) Oh and in case you were wondering, WE ARE HAVING A BOY!!!

That's about all...here's a little picture of Baby H to send you on your way. I hope each of you is doing well. Tell me what's going on with you.

Until next time...

Oh Yes He Did

So Husband was trying to be cute the other night and flatter this ever-growing pregnant momma. His words to me were the following...

"If you were an apple, you would be delicious."

You got to love him...

I *Heart* my new toy

I have a new toy and all of you will be the lucky recipients of it's products from now on.

Are you interested?



Have any ideas?

Well...it is this

And although I had to sell my firstborn to buy it, I am completely and totally in love. Oh, you know I am kidding...I only had to sell his plasma for the next forty years. I kid, I kid!

It is something that Husband and I have been talking about for awhile and so we've been saving and saving and saving and finally got enough to buy it and some fun accessories (extra lenses and such) to go with it.

Now, if I can only figure out how to use it, we will be in business.

Seemingly Sane

These days, my life is filled with a growing tummy, VBS, lazy days by the pool and lots and lots of AC. From the outside looking in, my life is seemingly normal, seemingly typical, seemingly sane.

But do I really have it all together?

Is my OCD enough to keep me in line...keep things going?

Sometimes I wonder exactly what direction I am headed...I wonder whether or not I am coming or going.

And then I stop...and I listen...and I am reminded.

Stop to smell the roses, listen to the direction of my Father, reminded that I am loved and that I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

And I press on...

Will He Do It...

D-Man is 100% boy...from the pictures I've shown you in the past, you probably already get that.

But, I've got more proof.
Enter Exhibit A. One can see that D-Man has spotted some water...and not just any water, water that shoots up really high.

Enter Exhibit B. D-Man has gotten closer to the water...just to get a better look, I'm sure.

Enter Exhibit C. It's just too much for him...all that looking and not touching is no more. D-Man has officially gotten wet and I'm fairly certain that he didn't mind one bit.

That's all I've got for today...off for my first day of jury duty. Fun, fun, fun!
