{ What We Wore Wednesday ! }

I did better this past week of getting pictures of Naomi than I did of Ashley and I. I am now 8 weeks along in my pregnancy #3, and I feel like I am starting to show a little, or at least my skirts feel tighter! A few days this week were warmish, and so lovely! Now it is in the 30s again. Here are some pictures of what we wore this week:

 My Sunday outfit: Top: Walmart; Skirt: Garage Sale; Heels: Candies via Garage Sale

 Ashley's Sunday outfit: Gifted and Thrifted I think

{ Mothering Monday }

So today's news is pretty exciting! We are going to have another baby! Yes, baby #3 is on the way! I am about 8 weeks along now, and the morning sickness (or rather evening sickness) phase is kicking in! It's not terrible, but basically just queasiness. I am very exciting about having another baby, and it is still sinking in for my husband! So cool God has decided to bless us with another sweet baby!

Lo, Children are an  Heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward

{ What We Wore Wednesday! }

We had fun here dressing up for Valentines Day this past week. Saturday, my husband and I even got to go on a fun date. I didn't get a picture though. I guess I will have to re-create that outfit another time. The last two days have been so pretty, it's almost like Spring wants to come, I mean we actually sat outside under a tree with the kids today and ate oranges. It was so nice to be outside again! Here are some pics of us all this week.

{ Mothering Monday! }

Hi! Happy Monday! Naomi and my nephew Mason, are playing happily in the living room right now, and Samuel is taking a much needed nap. The house is still somewhat messed up from the weekend, but it is slowly shaping up! I don't know about you guys, but Monday is always cleaning day here. I read a great passage this morning during my devotions in my Amplified Bible. The context is Paul speaking to the Colossians, but I thought it was really great applied to Mothers. Here it is:

"Him we preach and proclaim, warning and admonishing every one and instructing every one in all wisdom, [ in comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God], that we may present every person mature - full-grown, fully initiated, complete and perfect - in Christ, the Anointed One. For this I labor [ unto weariness] , striving with all the superhuman energy which He so mightily enkindles and works within me."

I think we can at least start the process of having these things worked out in our children, with God's help of course!

Here is a picture of Naomi and I taken after church yesterday.
