Update :)

Here is a very bitter sweet update for those who may still be checking this blog. Mostly sweet!
Months ago I stopped blogging to grow a baby. I was sick at the beginning and then at 16 weeks along I started having contractions. I was on a modified bed rest hoping to not dilate till many weeks later! Lucky for me I didn't. It was a very long few months, but also very humbling. I had many who brought me dinner and helped me with various things including spray painting :). That was my focus for those months was the baby growing inside of me waiting for December to come!

Well December came and so did my little bundle of joy...
He has brought the sweetest little spirit in our home! He is the best surprise ever! He also brought back to my mind whats important in life. I LOVED having months of not worring about more then was nessecary. I didn't miss this blog. I miss the comments but not the time spent on it or the daily updates. I didn't miss the blog parties, nor did I miss putting my kids off to get it all done. I realized blogging is not for me. I am not good with time managament with this blog. I can't find a time where I wouldn't have to ignore my kids or husband to get it done. I admire those who are successful at it. My life however, blogging just doesn't fit into it anymomre. My husband has a demanding church responsiblilty and a demanding new job. We get limited amount of time together. I had to let something go. It has to be this blog. 
I will miss it. I will miss all my blog friends. But I want more then anything to be a mom and just a mom. That is who I am and where I shine. It full fills me! This baby has made me realize my kids will be grown and gone way to fast. I need to make memories while I can :)! Thank you to all those who have prayed for me and my family with my husbands job hunt and the safety of my little baby. I felt them and many times the prayers carried me through. Thank you! May you all be blessed in this new year!!
