Moving up in the World.

This is a picture of Logan's last nights sleep in his car bed.
Logan and Jason have been talking about a "new" bed for some time now. We told Logan, as soon as he was ready to get rid of the car bed we would get him a "Loft" bunk bed! Our kid's rooms are sooo small and we knew this would just open up the floor and allow Logan to have more space. So...about 6 weeks ago....Logan told us he was ready to sale his car bed and get his new BED!!! So we put the car bed on craigslist and no joke...45 minutes later a lady in Tillamook called and wanted it. She came and got it the next day. SOOO...the search was on for the RIGHT bed for Logan. Jason did all the looking and he finally found the right bed, 4 weeks later:) We ordered it and were super happy to come home to it at our door stop today!!

LOGAN LOVES IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First night, fast asleep. (yes my little boy has a shinner *sigh*. Him and sis bonked heads Monday night.)

Peyton loves being up there with Logan too! We just have to keep his door shut when we aren't in there with her. Thankfuly, she doesn't know how to open doors.....yet:):)

Me...being the CA-RAZY woman that I am...filled my house with 4 other beautiful kids yesterday! We had a BLAST. I decided that it was Peyton's first official "girl's playdate". They all had soooo much fun!!!!!!!!

PICNIC time!!!!!!

This Logan's new best friend Hayden. He has been such an answer to prayer in my Logan's life and his mommy has been in mine! I am so thankful for new friends.

Daddy surprised the kids with these new chairs! Aren't they so darn cute?!?!?!

"When I try to live for you, without you"

I have been struggling so much lately with giving things to the Lord. So often, I give him my "junk" and then I take it back and try to take care of it myself. There are so many days that I long for Heaven...where I won't struggle with some many things. There will be no envy, no jealousy, no greed, no bitterness, and no ugly words/thoughts. I was working out this morning and praying, once again for God to just take all of these ugly things out of my mind...that he would just consume me and take it all away. This song came on and it was just amazing timing. It was an answer to prayer and a wonderful reminder of what I struggle with daily. I hope you enjoy these lyrics as much as I.

"Lately I've been busy thinkin'
And this is what's been on my mind
It seems like all I do is work for you, Lord
But I feel empty on the inside

I know that work is an important part
Oh but this is also true
My delimma is an issue of the heart
when I try to live for you, without you

I don't need to try to be
The flawless example
Lifted up for everyone to see
I don't need to stand and shout it
"Hey I've got the answer!"
If your presence is living in me
In a church committee
For the world to know the truth
All I need to do is just be me
Being in love with you

I've been spending all my time
And all my efforts trying
To make you proud of what you see
But to my great surprise
I have realized
nothing that I do can change your love for me."

Big Daddy Weave "Being in Love With You"
