While I am sitting here in my living room recovering from my wisdom teeth being pulled and having a implant done. I am sitting here missing some of my family. Daniel is at work and Joshua has been at Grandpa and Grandma Blanchard's home since Monday morning. With Thanksgiving being tomorrow, I got to thinking what I am thankful for. I would like to share a few blessings that I have in my life.


1. To be able to serve such a mighty God. It is a great honor to have our Lord stretch our His hand to such a lowly sinner as I am, and allow me to serve and worship Him freely!!

2. My Husband. Daniel has been my best friend and my lover. He has been there for me in our ups and downs, through the easy times and through the hard times. Everyday we grow stronger in our love for each other. Yesterday, we celebrated our 3rd Wedding Anniversary, and we pray for many more years together.

3. Our baby Joshua. Joshua has been our pride and joy. We have been blessed with such a easy going baby. He smiles and giggles most of the time, and when you are down, his smile and laughter will lighten up your face anytime, and he loves to pray!! :-) We pray, that Joshua will someday be blessed with another sibling.

4. Our families, the McDonald's and the Blanchard's. We know that if we needed them in a heart beat they would be there for us. If we need advice, they are the first ones we turn to. Both families in their unique way shed light of a Christian family, and we look to their example.

5. Our Church family. We have had little bit of a hard time finding a good church to attend, but we have found one. Not only do they preach the word of God, each family shows you how a family is to work according to the Bible.

6. Daniel's job. Yes it has it's hard times. Daniel drives 2 hours to work one way (4 hour round trip), and during the week, Joshua and I do not even get to see Daniel for 10 hours (it would be more then 24 hours, if you can count spending time with Daniel while he was sleeping, but when Daniel sleeps, he is out and he does not wake up till he has to go to work! :-) ), but I am grateful that Daniel stills has his job. It feeds us and puts a roof over our heads.

These are just some of our Blessings, that God has put into our life that we are grateful for.

We pray you all have Happy Thanksgiving with your family and friends!! Do not forget to thank the Lord for all your blessings in life!

Sunday Afternoon

Sunday afternoon, we had beautiful weather, so, we decided to take Joshua to the park to run off some energy. He had a wonderful afternoon and I enjoyed taking pictures of him with the new camera Daniel bought me for my birthday!! Enjoy the pictures! :-)

"Mommy, could you stop taking pictures of me??"

"Where are we going?"

"It is beautiful outside"

"Are we there yet?"

"Look Daddy, I can go down the steps by myself!"

"This is a big step!"

"Daddy, my hands have dirt on them, could you wipe them off!?"

"This is fun Daddy!"

"Look at me Mommy!!"

"This is fun!!"

"Hi Grandpa and Grandma McDonald!! Looking forward to seeing you soon!!"

There is a Higher Throne

There is a higher throne
Than all this world has known,
Where faithful ones from ev'ry tongue
Will one day come.
Before the Son we'll stand,
Made faultless through the Lamb;
Believing hearts find promised grace—
Salvation comes.

Hear heaven's voices sing;
Their thund'rous anthem rings
Through em'rald courts and sapphire skies.
Their praises rise.
All glory, wisdom, pow'r,
Strength, thanks, and honor are
To God our King, who reigns on high

And there we'll find our home,
Our life before the throne;
We'll honor Him in perfect song
Where we belong.
He'll wipe each tear-stained eye
As thirst and hunger die.
The Lamb becomes our Shepherd King;
We'll reign with Him.

Hiking in Davis, Oklahoma

This past weekend we took a couple from our church and went hiking in the beautiful nature that God created in Oklahoma. We had a wonderful time walking and the fellowship of good friends. Joshua had a grand time. He did not want to be carried, but want to walk. But, walking by his self, he was worn out! :-) He felt like a big boy and was all full of smiles and giggles!!

"I can walk by myself if that is fine with you Mrs. G!?"

"Rocks...can I touch them Mommy?"

"Are you sure I can touch them?"

"Daddy, can I go touch the water?"

Father and Son

Joshua enjoying his stick

This is the beautiful lake we went swimming in. That is until we found leeches on our feet. We were very blessed that Joshua did not have a single leech on him, and he just sat there watch all of us panic trying to get these things off of us!

Can you see the Castle?
