Miscellany...Wordless........Thursday! :D

Okay, so by the title of my post you can guess I'm combining everything I've missed this week...into one post! Well, for the most part anyway!

So, I'm gonna break down my week......just because!

Monday: Slight scare in the evening involving the twins. Led to a night of fervent prayer by lots of family and friends. Also was my MIL's bday...so that kinda got ruined.

Tuesday: Stayed in bed all day with my feet up while my hubby worked and the most amazing Mom in the world took care of Jack all day! Had an ultrasound at 5:00pm....both babies are fine! What a sigh of relief...and tears were shed once again.

Wednesday: Got some maternity clothes at the mall....8 1/2 weeks with twins....let's just say, wow. AND....my dear friend had her baby boy! Benjamin was born at 8:32am weighing 7lbs 2oz and 21inches long! And that's for being about 4 weeks early! After a slight blood sugar and feeding setback, he went home with Mommy and Daddy today, to join big brother Christopher (2 years)! No NICU for him, PTL!

Thursday: That would be today! Totally exhausted from not sleeping (can't seem to without a Unisom, and I waited to long last night!) And trying to take it easy per doctor's orders...while trying to keep my almost 2 year old happy. ASL class tonight, class #3...so far so good! Such an eclectic group...I decided to sit by the person I would LEAST likely EVER hang around in real life. It's been good for me!

Tomorrow brings haircuts, naps and family coming in from out of town! I've enjoyed staying up on your blogs, but between being exhausted and puking and spending any good time I have with my boys....blogging isn't on the top of my list right now :)

Oh! And when I showed Jack the ultrasound pictures, I said..."Look! Babies!" and he said..."No...doggies."
                                                                             Oh boy

Enjoy these pictures from our day trip to the Oregon Coast last Saturday!

Jack got attacked by a wave and then spent the rest of the day yelling at them :) Love his dimple!

I felt GREAT that day...even wanted pizza! Which says a lot since the road to the coast isn't exactly an easy one to handle...even without being pregnant!

BeautiControl Giveaway!

Have you heard of BeautiControl? This is an incredible line of skin care products that truly work! It's skin care, bath and body, makeup and men's care!
When I was pregnant a friend of mine who sells this came over and pampered me and a few friends, and then I started using the face system just before the babies were born. It did wonders. Then I ran out, and I put it off and my skin got bad again. And then about 2 weeks ago I started using it again. Wow. A visible difference in just two weeks. It looks better and feels better!
I am super picky about my skincare items, and I don't buy just anything.  Plus, I still struggle with breakouts. This stuff not only smells amazing, and makes my skin feel incredibly soft, but it does it's job.
They have a huge line that you will have to check out, just go over to their website and browse around! You can see if there is a consultant in your area and host a spa party!!!


Today I am giving away a Chocolate Indulgence Kit! Um, yummy.



It includes *…

I Believe He is Faithful

This past Tuesday I got a phone call from our caseworker that was nothing short of a gut punch. After hanging up the phone I started sobbing right there in the Pilot gas station parking lot. I had just had my hair cut for the first time in over a year, and was coming off of weeks of illness and texted Trevor that I was going to drive around for a bit and enjoy some quiet and fresh air. I pulled off to grab a bite from good ol Taco Bell when the phone call came through.  The words she spoke were the last things we wanted to hear- in fact they were the things we’ve been praying we would not hear this entire past year. It seemed unfathomable, and in fact is quite ludicrous which she herself admitted to thinking as well. I cannot imagine working for a system that so blatantly traumatizes children who have been victims of trauma already. It is hard enough as a foster parent to watch this happen. I cried, I texted Trevor I couldn’t come home until she was in bed, that I had gotten a phone …
