Sunday Check In

Both babies are sick.
Horrible coughs and yucky noses.
Poor things aren't sleeping well at all, and neither are Mommy or Daddy.
Hoping this passes soon.

We got our first "newsletter" from Jack's school. It made me giddy. I'm so excited for him to start, and so excited he is going where I went to school!
I can't say enough good things about Grace, and we are praying that every year the Lord will provide just what we need to send our boys there.
Worth the sacrifice.

Such an emotional week around here....but life doesn't stop.
The boys are growing and changing, Jack is unaware of the events that unfold
 (although he has asked, "Mommy, what are you doing?" when seeing me cry) 

He will soon know something is up, and I pray his little heart is protected.
He is the perfect medicine.
These innocent little boys who know nothing but smiles and security will be a constant source of joy for our family.

I'm hoping we can drive to the coast for a day. Just to breathe that air. There is just something healing about the ocean.
And the Oregon Coast to me, is the best place for that.

On another note, my Mom made pizza last night, and it was the kind that I can have.
I am a pizza lover.
It's my favorite food and I have not had any since starting WW like 5 weeks ago.
And last night I did.
It was amazing.
I savored every bite hehe!

I got to go to church last night, thanks to my sweet friend Helen for staying at the house with the babies.
They go to bed at 6:00pm and that's when church starts. So I either don't go :(
or someone has to come sit at the house with them while I do go.
It was sooo nice to be there with my family!

I love that on any given moment, the Lord floods my mind with the scriptures I have been memorizing.
It brings such encouragement to me.
And the best part is, they aren't just words I say to make myself feel better.
They are promises, real promises from God to me. To us.
And I am so thankful I serve a Living God.!

Thank you to those of you who have already signed up to bring a meal to my family after my Mom's surgery. It means so much!

 God is our refuge and strength,
   an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
   and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
   and the mountains quake with their surging.
Psalm 46:1-3

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! Face Lift Line 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

What’s more lame than having one type of cancer? Having two.

I had two colon polyps that popped positive for cancer. The thing is, they were in such different places they are considered two different cancers. Colon stage 3a and Rectal stage 3b . What’s more sexy than that?  My 5 weeks of radiation and oral chemo was to kill off any remaining cancer cells in the rectal area because even though my surgeon (while tactless) actually did an amazing job by literally remaking that whole area internally and avoiding any sort of colostomy bag- you can’t guarantee you got it all. So standard practice is always pelvic radiation for that area.  The chemotherapy infusions are to make sure every last naughty cell in my body is gone. Because I had it in one of the lymph nodes they removed, it showed this cancer was able to travel which is how cancer spreads to your other body parts. If it wasn’t in the lymph nodes yet chemo wouldn’t have been necessary. So glad we caught this when we did and that I actually had symptoms to warrant a colonoscopy. Often times th
