How You Doin?

I haven't done a general update in a while, and since I couldn't sleep, I feel now is a great time to do just that.

We'll start with Clayton, since he's the coolest of the 3 of us anyway. Mr. C is 8 months old now. How did he get that big without asking me first? He's starting to say a few little words. Hey, Dada, and when he's really upset and angry, Mama. He's trying to crawl, wave, pull up, stand up, learn to drive, and apply for college. Well, maybe that's a stretch, but it seems he is growing by leaps and bounds every day. He's still a great sleeper and eater. Eating off of the table most of the time now. He loves beans of any kind, fudgesicles(thanks Gram :P) and something called a Moo Tube. A Moo tube is yogurt in a long plastic sleeve. I think it's gross, but he likes them. Chad and I are starting to plan for Christmas. How cool is that? We get to buy toys this year for someone that actually wants them.

Next there's Chad. If you have no life and keep up with my random posting, then you know he now has an insulin pump. WOW. I really can't think of anything else to say about it. In my opinion(and since it's my blog, it's the only one that matters) it has completely changed his life. He feels great, looks great, acts great, and is always busy again. His blood sugar levels are starting to become more normal without the erratic highs and lows. We are thankful that the Lord saw fit to provide Chad with the pump. Already we have noticed that diabetes is not in the forefront of most of the things that we think about. Sometimes you can almost forget about it. AWESOME. Chad is also back in school working on his Masters Degree. He's busy at Calvary doing all of the things an Associate Pastor does. I'm really proud of him, and the man that he's becoming.

Now to me. I don't have a whole lot to report on myself. My days are filled with work, helping Chad with his church duties, and loving Mr. C. And really, is there anything better? I didn't think so. We are very busy, going here and there. But, we love it. We have a lot of opportunities and get to do a lot of different things, and meet a lot of different people that we otherwise wouldn't be able to do. We're thankful for everything the Lord provides for us, and we know that it all comes from Him.

Heavenly Sevenly

Today is our 7th anniversary. How exciting for us. I know 7 years isn't all that long, but we're happy about making it that far. We have been blessed with a lot in our short time together. Great jobs that make us happy, a great church where we get to serve the Lord, a great house with an equally great payment(read cheap), great friends and family, and of course a WONDERFUL, AWESOME, CUTE, ADORABLE, SWEET, red headed little boy.

This past year was filled with a lot of craziness and busy days, but we did it and came out on this side happier than ever. So, I love ya babe!!
