The picture of me in the skirt and sweater was taken this morning, the one with Noah and me was taken in March, almost exactly 9 months ago. WOW! I have currently lost 52 lbs. The weight is slowly coming off, but I am anxious to reach my goal of (-) 75 lbs. So close... but yet so far! I will do it. I don't care how long it takes!! I am so thankful for the success that God has granted me this far. To God be the glory!

called "Winter Wonderland". My parents and sister met us
there and we had a great time. There were horse drawn carriage rides, appetizer's, sparkling grape juice and a little tykes shop where everything cost only 1 Santa buck (aka $1). I signed Noah up and paid the $1 (courtesy of my dad :) ) and bent down and asked him who he wanted to buy a gift for. I named everyone there and he chose me. I was so touched by his choice that I got a little weepy. I pulled myself together and watched him as he left my hand and went into the "Kids Only" area with a helper elf. I was sent away so I couldn't see what he was going to buy. My sister told me that he kept looking up with a confident, big boy grin. He thought it was so great that he was able to go shopping by himself. After he shopped for about 5 minutes he came over to me. He sat down with the gift-wrapped present and quickly opened it up and handed me the gift. He had picked out a very special Christmas light key chain that lights up when you push the button. His elf told my dad that she tried to encourage him to choose stationary or a candle, but he was set on this precious key chain. It is now proudly displayed on our Christmas tree in the dining room. What a treasure.

My first official blog...
My first official blog... Hello all! Thank you for taking a moment to check out my very first blog. I have been encouraged by many of my friends to start a blog and today, I gave in. I think I will like the world of blogging, but I don't know how much time I will be able to put in. Time will tell. Anyway, I hope you enjoy reading. :)
Yesterday morning we woke up to a beautiful blanket of snow. It was wonderful! My dad and sister came over for grilled cheese sandwich's and soup and then played with Noah in the snow for a bit. It was so fun to watch! Collin is fighting a cold that won't seem to truely come to be an actual cold, but it has been bothering him since last Wednesday, so he and I stayed inside. Noah was even more excited when he came inside and got to drink moderately warm chocolate with coolwhip from a real coffee mug and have fresh baked brown sugar cookies. YUMMY! We ended the afternoon by watching Elf all cuddled up underblankets. I think Noah was the only one who actually stayed awake for the entire movie. Poor Collin went to bed after lunch and missed the entire party.
The current state of my life would probably be summed up as consistent challenges that someday will produce a wiser woman and two boys who love the Lord and are able to be productive citizen's. Lately I have been thinking a lot about the future of our family. I think about how much my life has changed over the past 10 years and how fast all of those changes have occured.
Becky 10 years ago:
~about 6 months graduated from highschool
~19 years old (+2 weeks)
~2 of my four grandparents were alive
~"in love" with a boy named David (what a joke)
~ partying a lot!
~ drank too much.
~ lived dangerously.
~ never thought about the fact that I was immortal.
~I rejected God.
~ I love God.
~ Mommy of two amazing boys.
~Married, 7 years, to the love of my life.
~Minivan driver. (By choice)
~Full-time student enrolled in the school of do the best you can parenting.
When you take time to compare where you are and where you were, I think you will either be happy or sad. The lesson's I have learned over the past ten years are invaluable and have shaped me into the woman I am today, just as the lesson's I will learn over the next 10 years will shape me into the person I will become. I am so thankful for where God has placed me in my life. I am thankful for my friends and family. I am thankful for my church. I am thankful for the many blessing and even the challenges God has placed in my life. I hope you have a great day!!
Love to all,Becky
