In my life I have realized that God sends special angels in human form to help us along our way. Some of those "angels" we just get to see in passing or read about. However, once in a while we really get to know them. I have been so lucky that in my life time, of only 26 years, I have had the opportunity to have many "angels" in my life. Around this time of year I especially miss one very much. When I was just four God sent a very Important "Angel" to me. His name is Dennie, and he is the man I now call Dad. I lived in one of those houses that you see on TV and hope that it is not real. My Father was an abusive alcoholic and my Mother is mentally slow and had her choice of drugs also. Our house was always dirty and we did not know when we would get food or even what it would be. During all of this God had a plain, he sent a church bus to my house. My parents quickly put us on the bus so they could do their thing. In this old small church is where I meet Dennie. He always had a smile on his face and know how matter how dirty I was he always had a big hug. Dennie and his wife Nora came and got me most weekends and summers from the time I was 5 till I was 14. At 14 I went to live with them. Dennie helped teach me to cook, to drive, and most of all how to love and be loved. At 19 God need this Important Angel back in heaven. There is not a day that goes by that I don't miss him. But at Thanksgiving and Christmas time it is very hard for me because he made these times special. What helps me make it through is to know that one day I WILL get to see him. Even knowing that I still wish he was here to see his 3 grandsons and what a great husband and father Travis has become. So to my Blog friends treasure your "angels" everyday.

Our boys are now 5. They are so big now most of the time they do not need mommy or daddy, but that is ok. As long as they give me hugs and kiss' I am ok. We had a big party for them is weekend and it was a lot of fun. Travis' grandparents came in from California on Friday and will go home Wednesday. We have had a good time just getting to see them with the boys.

Elsie's Movie Review.

A couple weeks ago my husband and I got to go see an adult movie. I let him choose and he picked Fireproof. I didn't know a lot about it, but I was just excited that it wasn't a kid movie. It is made by the same people who made Facing the Giants and that is a movie I like. There were parts of the movie that I laughed, that I cried, and that just made me think. He did such a good job at his pick I am now recamending it to all of you. Here is a trailer...

Let me know what you think!

So here are some photos of all the fun we had.

No more diapers for me.

As you all know Gavin just tared 2 on August 31 and this week he has told us no more diapers. That is good but it is a lot of work as you all know when boys are learning to go to the potty you are in the bathroom ALL the time. In the last 3 days we have only had one accident and we were at the mall playing and he told me he had to go but I could not get him there in time. So tonight at bed time he had to go potty it was the #2 so we needed a book. I was in the bathroom with him for about 15min and then Tylar came in to help me read. I want out and when I came back in I heard Tylar telling Gavin that all good books end in amen. So I will lave you with

some potty photos.

Look at us now.

We have come a long way in the last 6 years. We have had our ups and downs but now that I look back I am so happy that God knew what he was doing. There were at lot of days that I can remeber praying and thinking that he did not hear me. I don't know if it is that I am older or that I have grown more in my faith but now I can see that he heard my every prayer. I love my life and I thank God every day.
