Thankful Thursday

Today I am thankful for a number of things...
... that my husband found and made a big deal about getting running boards for our Attack Vehicle; it is getting harder to get in it.
... my belly going away; because that means this little one on the inside is getting bigger.
... sleep; enough said.
... friends.
... my kids.
... sun shine.
... a clean house; and for my husbands help to get it so clean.
... Anna's ability to clean so good - she cleans the bathroom counter everyday and she does a really good job.
... family.
... a really nice big Public Library.

Thankful Thursday

When I got on this morning a read my friend Jill's post about being thankful it was and is very challenging, so while a chew on it I will share what I am thankful for today - if you want to check it out you can go here: durangopalmers.blogspot.com.

Today I am thankful for...
... little things like my coffee cup.
... my precious little boy.
... a daughter that is almost 6, very independent, and so excited to get to dressed up and go to the Daddy Daughter Dance she can not contain herself.
... my tender caring husband.
... that Matt was able to trade one of his acoustic guitars for an electric guitar - every cool how God worked that out.
... running boards for our Attack Vehicle; and that Matt is super excited about getting them and putting them on.
... our Attack Vehicle - yep I still love it; gas guzzling and all.
... friends that are willing to take my kids on fire station tours.
... our house with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms - it is so nice to not share a bathroom with the kids.

Bragging on the Husband about a Coffee Cup

So I have to brag on my husband. He got me my V-day present yesterday and it is this awesome coffee cup. Okay the bragging is that I had mentioned on Friday (when one of our friends was showing us her new cup) wanting a cup like this; and he remembered what I wanted and got it for me. Do not get me wrong he gets me lost of things I love and like; he just does not always remember what I say I want in passing and this time he did. I love the cup; it is nice and big and keeps my coffee warm as I chase the kids around in the morning - just what I wanted. Good job babe.

Baby Girl to Arrive in July

We had our ultrasound today and we are having a girl. Here are some of the ultrasound pictures for those of you that can read them. Her name is Somer Joy; meaning summer joy.




After the ultrasound Matt and I were walking down the hall and he was really quiet, I asked if he was okay. He said yes " I am just falling in love." I said with our baby; and he is:) I know we both are. It just seems more real and like we are actually going to have this baby now that she has a name and we have seen her.

The New Car AKA The Attack Vehicle

We just bought a "new" car. It is a 1996 Suburban. I love it and we got a really good deal on it. The cool thing is that I have been praying for a 7 to 8 passenger vehicle sense we had Anna; 5 almost 6 years later God gives us one.


It is even blue my favorite color.


Look at all the passenger room and it has leather seats.


The driver side.



The front.

Anna Labels Daddy

Anna and Matt were in a skit at church. As a very proud mom and filmed it and thought I would share with all of you. Enjoy! (Sorry about it being sideways; but I can not figure out how to rotate it).
