This past week and weekend were very busy and exciting at the same time. We have spent the evenings at our new church praying and filling it with the presence of God to make it ready for the move today. Each night the Spirit of God was all around.
Today is also MY BIRTHDAY!! I am finally admit
ting that I have turned 30 years young. I have been having a hard time dealing with that number and it was stressing me out. But know as I am about to go to bed and the house is quiet except for the sound of my beautiful children sleeping, and a husband who has tried hard all weekend to make my birthday special, see I admitted it, and thoughts of a wonderful church dedication service, more to come on that later this week, I am reminded of how much I do have and how I should be thanking God for giving me those 30 years and allowing me to continue to be here with my family in order to praise Him and do His will. I was told by some friends at work that I should be happy to turn 30 because now I have more wisdom and knowledge to share with my children. So with this in mind I will start fresh right now and look forward to each new day, and year, that God has given me.
Here are some pictures of the weekend.

John and the boys took me to Red Lobster for a birthday dinner.

The girls at work tried to surprise me with a little party. They had cake, ice cream, brownies, chips, dip, and salsa for us to pig out on. They had me a present and some very pretty flowers for me also. We were so busy, I ended up having to cut the cake in between cases and we did not really get to sit down and take a bunch of pictures. Although I did get some thanks to having the camera from dinner earlier.

Growing Boys!!!

Last week I took the boys to the Doctor for a check up and for Benjamin to get some shots for school. I had to tell Ben that he was going to get shots in order to prepare him for it. Last time he had them he went ballistic and said he never wanted to see the doctor again. Anyways, I had him all prepped and we even went to Toys-R-Us and got a post doctor visit toy. We were ready! When we got to the doctor and I talked to her about the shots, she promptly said, in front of Benjamin, that he did not need any and would not until he was 6yrs old. I was surprised and asked her why and she said that they give the last round of shots between 4-6yrs and she preferred to give them closer to 6yrs but we could give them know if I wanted to. Well, since she said right in front of Benjamin he did not need any I was not going to convince him to go ahead and get them. They did however get a finger prick and the Flu Mist, which they were not to excited about. Benjamin also had his blood pressure taken for the first time, he said "Mommy, I did not like that hug on my arm!!"

Jacob is in the 90% in height and weight and Benjamin is in 60% weight and 75% height. My babies are getting sooo BIG!!!!!

Here are a few Pics from the visit!!
