While sitting here perusing my email, I was thinking how it'd be nice to write a blog post. Lo and behold, I came across the latest from my dear friend, Sprittibee. Her post was all about the blessings in her life. Voila!
Hubby's Business - It's been just over two months since my husband started his business and it's going so well. Even when he has nothing lined up for the next day or week, God brings him just the right amount of work. He has some downtime for phone calls, parts ordering, and research. A couple weeks ago, he was able to take a day off for a trip to Denver. It was so nice to have a family day out together. He's making about the same amount of money he was before, but he doesn't have to work as many hours for it. He's so happy doing this, which is a huge blessing!
We went to the Colorado Mills Mall - primarily because they have a Lego store. To the best of my knowledge, it's the only one in the state. ClayGuy was happy because he got to order a set that's not yet available in stores. Plus they ship free when you order at a store.
When you're photographing people, one very important thing is to take note of your background. You're supposed to ensure that there aren't things sticking out of the heads of your subjects. Unless you're me. Then you position your boys right smack in front of something that will stick out of their heads. It makes for a much funnier shot, don't you think?
We had lunch at McGrath's Fish House. Talk about delicious!! I had some killer skewered and grilled prawns. Well, they weren't killer prawns like you might think of a piranha or something, but they were fantastic. The Comedian had coconut prawns with spiced orange marmalade sauce that he could not stop raving about. Hubby had salmon that was incredibly awesome. And ClayGuy, my very picky, non-seafood eater, had a PLAIN hamburger. Cause that's what he does.
What's a trip to Denver without a stop at The Container Store? Rows and rows of colorful dreams of organization. I would sure love to have a big, huge gift card for that place. In the meantime, it would seem that my photographic silliness has worn off on my family. My guys set this shot up all on their own. I didn't even have to ask. I love these guys!
The House - It's slow going, but we're making progress on the house. When we moved in, everything (except a couple of bathrooms) was white. While that's fine for showing, it's not really my top choice for our home. It has taken awhile to get started because I couldn't make a decision about color. But we finally decided on chocolate brown and sky blue for the family room. I'm excited about getting this done!
Company's Coming - Carrie of Gremlin Wrangler fame and her family are coming for a visit! I'm SO excited! Can you just imagine the photography madness that will ensue with the two of us? I need to finish emptying my memory cards so I'm loaded and ready to roll. In addition, wonkiness will abound! My youngest son has been chatting and playing online games with their oldest, so I'm thinking they'll enjoy getting to meet in real life. Even though Zoe will be in the presence of even more boys, I have access to a couple of girls her age who love creating and crafts, so I plan on hooking her up.
We are so blessed and I am ever grateful for everything the Lord has done. Not just because things are good right now, but because HE is always good, regardless of circumstances.
"Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, and for His wonderful works to the children of men!" Psalm 107:8
