Their Marriage Project

this is such a unique and beautiful story of how these 2 met and married. it is really cool if you have a few minutes to read and watch a video on their blog. It made me cry happy tears :) So beautiful to see 2 people (even though i don't know them) that love the Lord uniting as one.

A Story by Noah

Noah was at his Skill Builders class at the Y and his teacher gave him a picture of a dog and he was to tell her a story and she wrote it down word for word. So here is, what i think, the best story ever spoken by a 4 year old :)

I love dogs. They're so puffy. Next time there is a dog and he woofed very loud and he heared a guy and the dog shouts very loud and the guy he covers his ears. And the story is not over. There is a monster in the house.

3 random things i think you should know

ok, so here are 3 random things that i think are useful to my life this week. and might be to yours.
(the 2 people that read our blog) ha!
1- Panera has a rewards card! and just by registering it online i have a free pastry waiting for me! ;)
2- something that has saved me money on buying fruit in the winter months- getting fruit from the salad bar. i get a scoop full of fresh cut strawberries for like .99! instead of 4.99 a pint. we sure cannot afford that! Also we buy frozen fruit at Trader Joes. Strawberries and blueberries.
3- a friend who was going through some major health problems told me about this and it is something that i have changed in our house. I buy organic dish washing soap and dish washer detergent. She said it is one simple change that can make a great impact. it makes are eating out of and on the dishes that you wash. And the regular detergent has all kinds of crap in it. I don't know the correct language but i know it reads like this - ghudkslfjslfjslfjslfjslfjslfsjl. that is the products we are using to wash our dishes that goes into our bodies...not good! So at the beautiful store Target you can get Seventh Generation Natural Dish Liquid and they have the dish washer detergent. Its nice to see non-toxic on what you are cleaning your dishes with :) and its not that much more money. Believe me, i am the queen of saving money.
So just wanted to share those things while they were on my heart this week! :)

we love vacation!!!

we had a great 10 days in North Myrtle Beach!! Some friends from our church were kind enough to let us use their condo again....what a huge gift!! We had a blast and had some much needed family time! we try and make vaca full of fun things that we normally don't get to do or do much of. So we borrowed some new toys from a friend. Borrowed some movies. bought popsicles. (we never buy them...i make juice pops-so these are a real treat) got candy and ice cream a few times. went out to dinner most nights. I had a coupon or gift card for almost every place we went!! :)) love e-clubs! went mini golfing 3 times. went to the pool and/or beach every day. bought lots of sweets to enjoy at the condo. Chris and i got 1.00 red boxes quite a bit :) we just had a laid back blast! our air conditioning broke down 20 minutes into the drive there!!! but we were able to get it fixed for a good price. the parts were expensive, but the labor was done by a friend of a friend. so we are thankful that the last few days and they way home we had air! thank you Jesus!! Noah still called the beach house his "other house". when we pulled up he said.. "oh, a light is on in my house." so sweet!! I tried to get Chris to stay another day! But he said he had to go back to work! what is that?!
we are so thankful!! we pray the Lord's blessing on our friends!!

the boys :)

Chris is quite the photographer.....he is talented and does not even know it! check out these sweet pics he surprised me with when i was at work last week!
The older that Owen is getting, the better they are playing together. It is the sweetest thing to see them playing and laughing together! They love each other so much and it is so fun to think about the brotherly fun they are going to have as time goes on!!

summer at Inniswoods Park

This is one of our favorite metro parks. We are so blessed to have some really fun parks here in Columbus! The boys love it! We had a picnic lunch and then explored the woods!
