Fireproof- A Must See!

Justin and I took a date "night" Friday afternoon and went to see the new movie Fireproof. It was incredible! Maybe some of you have heard or read about it, but Sherwood Baptist Church out of Albany, Georgia has produced this movie along with two others (Flywheel and Facing The Giants). It is so rare for a good Christian movie to come out. I wanted to post this Friday evening, but my computer decided to be stubborn! It is about marriage and the foundation a marriage has to be built on in order to survive. It deals with some issues that I think the church as a whole has overlooked and that is the reasons why so many marriages are falling apart with in the church. There are so many people suffering silently and what better way to reach them. It also presents a clear Salvation message. For more information you can go to and read more about it. I don't have a clue who all reads this blog, but I would strongly encourage everyone to go see this movie.

Newer Pictures

This post is mainly going to be pictures of the past few weeks. Things are starting to slow down and I am regaining a little of my energy. Since I last blogged Justin celebrated his 28th birthday on Sept. 17. We had a nice dinner out with his family. We actually had a nice time just the two of us the weekend before. It's so hard to surprise him with anything, but I did manage to get tickets to a comedy show without him knowing about it. I have been spending quite a bit of time caring for Dave (the elderly gentleman two condos down from us). He has fallen twice in the past week and ended up with some pretty nasty looking wounds. It's nice to be able to put some of my nursing skills back into action. Evan is his usual happy self. He keeps us on our toes and we love every minute of it! He "talks" a lot more now. I'm amazed at how many words he actually says and know what they mean. Well, for some reason blogger is not letting me post any pictures. I may have to resort to several posts through Picasa or just wait until later to post pictures.

A little boy's best friend!

Well, we have welcomed a new member to our family. She is of the four legged kind. Her name is Ginger and she is 12 weeks old. She is a full blooded golden retriever. She was to be a show dog, but the owners little girl was diagnosed with brain cancer and they decided she would be happier as a pet. She will live with Justin's parents until we move into a house. This way she will grow up with Evan and when we move she can come live with us. Ginger has a wonderful personality and seems to have already taken a liking to Evan. Home to meet Daddy!
Follow the leader!
Hum, what's this thing?
Evan's first glimpse of Ginger. Not to sure what to think at first!

Ok, so I know a few of you think I dropped off the face of the earth (sorry April, I am trying to do better!), but the truth is I have been to worn out to blog! We are still alive and well. Unfortunately, this post will have to do without pictures because I haven't gotten them uploaded yet! I have been so exhausted lately that I'm napping every time Evan does! I hate it because I can't get anything done. Come to find out my TSH (thyroid) level is high. I had this problem quite a few years ago and was back to normal with Synthroid. I started the medication to day although the doctor warned me it could take two months to straighten out. Other than that I have started helping an elderly man who lives two condos down from us. It's great because I can walk there in under a minute and I can take Evan with me. They love to see Evan and it works well with our schedule. Evan is doing great! He has twelve teeth now. He is really starting to "like" eating. He walks everywhere and tried to run every now and then. We are amazed at the words he can say! He loves to go to the park and seems to enjoy playing with other kids. The past two Sundays, he has been very comfortable in the nursery at church. I was a little anxious about it due to the fact that it's a new church for us, but he seems to be doing great. He took an instant liking to the senior pastor and reached out to be held the first time they met which is very unusual. Justin has been very busy with work lately. We are looking forward to things slowing down in the next few weeks! I'll try and post later this week with pictures, but no promises! Have a wonderful night!
