Three months ago today she arrived on our doorstep. Complete gift from God! If you are around me very long you will hear me say that I think everyone needs a little Naomi in their life. Such sweet tenderness surround this little soul. Everywhere we go people comment on her sweetness. I fall more in love everyday and that is saying something. For one who isn't normally a big baby fan I am enjoying pretty much every minute.
Oh and Jenny.......only a month until you can snuggle her close. You get first dibs on her at the cabin. :)

The excitement of the week has been the sighting of a bobcat and also a bear! This is the second time a bobcat has been spotted at our house (I haven't seen it yet) and the first time we saw a bear. We knew the bear has been around since I have had to clean up the mess it has left behind a few times. Heidi went out on our front porch right before she was going to bed, came back in with huge eyes and tried to tell us about the bear through her constricted throat due to her fear! I looked out the window and yelled for the boys to come quickly. The big ole' bear meandered through our yard slowly. It was beautiful to watch but if it hangs around we will be called the game commission. Makes me a little uneasy with my children who like to play outside a lot.
Hope your week is running along smoothly and that someone who is reading this is getting to enjoy sunshine since the sun seems evasive around here! I was just thinking this morning how much I would love to live where the sun shines everyday!

And for the record, I tried to get my boys for a pictures but decided I wouldn't torture them. We had a splendid day! We had a relaxing morning, went to the later service at church, had Naomi dedicated and then spent a fun afternoon/evening with my Aunt Tina, Uncle Glenn, cousin Brianna and her boyfriend Brandon. They are probably my kids new favorite! They blessed us tremendously yesterday!! Thank you a million times over for spending time with us!
I started this Monday morning with a full cup! That hasn't happened in quite a while. Mark and I had an evening out on Friday and were treated to a beautiful dinner by my Uncle Elvin and Aunt Molly. We spent hours talking, being encouraged and laughing! If everyone who has dinner with them leaves feeling so encouraged, wow! And then yesterday spending time with another aunt/uncle! Blessed beyond measure.

We are gearing up for summer around here and the countdown until the end of school has happened. I am lining up some help for myself this summer so we survive. I finally accepted the fact that I cannot do everything that needs done. Go ahead and congratulate me for admitting to my limits! I was buried under office work last week and am slowly digging my way out. This time of year is just a little on the busy side at our house.
And I am looking forward to a night out with my sweet husband this weekend!! Date night gets sweeter and more necessary with each child we add to our family. Know what I mean?
