snapshots of *life*

so the olympics are really throwing me off.
i am staying up way too late and then i can't get myself out of bed in the morning.
ugh.

the only bonus to that is that the kids are sleeping in as well.
friday morning the kids were still sleeping so i crept out of the house at 7 a.m.
and went to the store myself.
so much quicker that way. :)

brought some day old donuts back.
it is the end of summer you know.





campbell is kind of hilarious.
she wanted me to take a picture of her and her bear.
so i did.
she then requested i put it on her blog.
so...here it is. :)


kaycee is talking "funny" these days.
she has an expander in her mouth  now...
her upper jaw was measuring 27 inches, and it should be measuring 37-39 inches.
she is tiny. apparently so is her mouth. :)

this means i get to insert a wire into her expander each night, and crank...
and it expands up there.
(which doesn't feel so great i should add)
at the end of september they will take that out and then make a retainer...
which will hopefully "retain" her bigger/stretched out jaw.
yikes.

that's all for now.
my day was blah.
i can't wait to have a better one tomorrow. :)

really trying to live out that theme verse at the top of my blog...
i am having a very hard time. very hard.
i am not feeling joyful right now in my hoping. that is for sure.
i am not joyful right now at all actually.
and patient in affliction. rrriigghhtttt.
faithful in prayer. yep. that is about the only thing i have going for me right now. :(
 
now to shift gears a bit...
i did find an aweome site today.
check it out here

it is a food/cooking blog, and she has weeks and weeks worth of menu ideas, and then.
a grocery list to go with them.
can you say awesome. and genius?

trying my first week this week. i certainly can't go wrong, can i?
i feel like i make the same stuff all the time, so this will mix stuff up a bit.
yay.

yay for doughnuts!
& yay for that blog!! thanks for posting about it..i checked it out. pretty cool. :) can't wait to try some of the recipes.
& about that verse...it is a good reminder. this world is not easy...i am also really struggleing with a certain "situation" to see God's plan & provision.
HE IS FAITHFUL....even when our eyes & minds cant comprehend His hand. (i'm reminding myself)
LOVE YOU GIRL!
lets set up a time for coffee sans kids! k?
Angelas Cafe or something.
