Every week I tell Nate, I’m not watching this show anymore unless I get some answers! And then every week I get sucked in and watch it. So I thought in two hours during the finale I would get some answers. I got some…but there are still so many questions. Why does the island want them back? Who was on the island first…the others or the Darma Initiative? There are so many more that Nate and I have discussed at length. We think next season…which means January…will be their last. We think they are going to wrap up all the loose ends. Or at least I hope they are going to wrap it up.

By the way, how great was it that it was Penny’s boat? I don’t get how it was Penny’s boat…how she got the call….but it was great nonetheless.

A little nugget of cuteness about Abbey:

Nate or I will be sitting on one end of the couch working on the computer. She will be on the other playing or watching a show. It never fails that very slowly she will inch her way over until she is sitting as close to us as possible. She always has to have one arm touching us. Its so sweet. She is fickle and having two year old moments but she is just a joy to our family.

Still on the quest

May 27, 2008

I am still on the prayer understanding quest. I have had so many conversations with God about my lack of understanding on the subject. I wonder if this is something that I will only get when I get to heaven…or I may never get it. There are a lot of scripture on this subject that I have read and reread. I think my immaturity just wants to prayer something and have that thing very thing happen as a result of my prayers. But then I realize that is not faith. And faith is the evidence of things unseen. Sometimes, just sometimes though, don’t you just want to see it? Maybe its just me.

I will always believe that God is able. He is all powerful. He is sovereign. He is good. And I am blessed beyond anything that I deserve.

But I still question does He intervene? Change the course as a result of petitioning? Or is the course set out before us and what happens, was going to happen either way? I might be overanalyzing this…but its in my nature to do this.

Am I the only one who wonders these things?

KC Representin’

May 22, 2008

I predicted it many posts ago. David Cook is the new american idol. And he is from KC! Archuletta had a beautiful voice, pretty much flawless. But he is too awkward if you ask me. Cook is just cool. Did I mention he was from KC? It was an exciting night in our city last night that is for sure.

Loved the finale. It was really entertaining. Cook singing with ZZ top was great. Carrie Underwood is amazing, although she forgot to put her pants or skirt on. It was a great show.

Thats all on that.

The weather has been so nice the past few days here. The kids love to be outside on our little patio that we have here at the town house. Ethan got a playhouse and a bike for his birthday from the grandma’s. He and Abbey would play out there for hours if they could. Its so fun to hear Ethan’s imagination as he plays. He is always singing or humming something. Abbey just follows him around trying to do what he does. She is enjoying the house just as much as Ethan is. Its cool to see them starting to play together. And developing that brother sister bond.

Great day

This was an especially good sunday at Restore. Nate spoke for the first time in the service. He did an amazing job as usual. It was my turn to sing with worship so that is always a good time for me. Our whole family was there.

Two of my friends from my work drove 40 minutes to come to Restore. And they liked it so much that they want to come back! We went to lunch after church. It was so refreshing for me to sit down with some girls and chat. Its been all work and no play since we’ve moved here so this was fabulous.

Because my mom is in town, Nate and I have had some much needed free babysitting! We used that chance to go see Iron Man which was actually really good.

All in all today was a great day.

On Monday, May 19th Ethan turns 5. I can’t believe how fast he is growing up. He is smart, gorgeous, funny, strong willed, and great.  We decided today would be a good day to have a party. We headed to Gladstone bowl and got our bowl on. Ethan had a blast. He had both grandmas, cousins, aunt and uncle and friends all there to celebrate his day. He got his first bike and house. Abbey had some fun too.
