Week 3: Day 15-21

Random thoughts on this Sunday

We are still struggling with finding a church.   We have pretty much given up on finding a church in this little town that we live in.   Maybe we gave up so easily because we have both been hurt big time by small town churches.  Maybe that is why we like bigger churches.   Or maybe we like bigger churches because they offer so much for you to get involved in.   Maybe we like big churches because our one experience with a big church was amazing.   God's word was taught verse by verse.  The views of the pastor or the board of directors didn't change what God had to say.   Maybe its because for the 2 years that Bristol was in the nursery they treated her like their own child.  They welcomed her, they encouraged her.  They were amazed when she started walking, talking, and potty training.  They were truly there to help us raise our child.  Just like a church should be.  They made us feel welcome.  In a church with thousands of members to know 2 little kids by name, that is pretty special.   We felt God's hand on our move back to California.  Jeremy has an amazing job, one where he comes home every day happy.  Some days he works 8 hours others he works 3 hours.  It is wonderful. I love having my husband home so much, Bristol and Eldon love having the stability of daddy being home.  We also love being around our families. I love that when we are going to visit them, Bristol knows when we turn onto Maga and Paga's street.   Its nice to drop them off and run errands alone.   One thing that struck me last night is this, it took us 9 months to find RMC in Colorado.  We have only been here for 5 months.    But I do not want to wait another 4 months to feel at home when I walk in to church, I don't want to go another 5 months of dropping my children off at the nursery to have her be ignored by the staff.   I don't want to go another 5 months feeling like my children are not being shown who God is when we are at church.

Wow that was heavy!  Now for the lighter stuff.

I have the last 2 weeks of 365 ready to go.  Although with Picnik going away I am not sure what I will edit my pictures on.   I will try and get those pictures up today, although lately I haven't had the attention span to sit at the computer and blog.

Well that is all I have for this Sunday.  Can you believe that January is almost over?

Romans 5:19

Because one person disobeyed God, may became sinners.  But because one other person obeyed God, may will be made righteous.
Romans 5:19

Amazing!  That is all I have to say.  Simply amazing.

Eldon's 1st birthday party!

I am surprised this party happened.  This last week and half has been pretty miserable and it has felt like an entire month has passed.   Between restaurant banishment and illness, I wasn't sure we would make it here.  Wednesday my sister came into town to help me get ready for the party but instead she has helped me get my health somewhat back.   

Wednesday night we took Eldon to the ER because he was having a really hard time breathing when he was on his back. I knew he had croup and we were planning to go to the doctor the next day, but I knew I had to get him some immediate relief.   After a cool mist steam, a steroid shot, and a dose of antibiotics for a ear drum that look like it was going to rupture we left the ER at 2am.   The next day me and Bristol went to the doctor where, I was told that I had an upper respiratory infection and Bristol and all the signs of croup without the barking cough and a double ear infection.  After 3 trips to Walgreens, I came home to Jeremy informing me that he has a 102.7 temperature.   I called the doctor and they gave us an appointment for the next day.   After which Jeremy got a diagnosis for the flu and pneumonia.   That was yesterday, as in the day before the party!   Oh well, we had to move on.  We are all on antibiotics and the doctor assured us that no one was contagious.   

Yes Brody and Eldon are both wearing red plain, NO it wasn't planned.

I would really like to take a cake decorating class before my sister's baby shower in April.... but this town offers nothing like this.

Our attempt at a family photo... PATHETIC!

Eldon's most favorite person in the world!  Paga Mark.

Birthday cake time!

I didn't make the cupcakes.   Honestly I didn't even think about it.   But then around noon today I started feeling guilty that we were not doing anything special this evening for Eldon's birthday.  So we made a trip to Stater Bros, where I picked up some awesome Elmo cupcakes.    Eldon new exactly what to do with said cupcake.  Once again, sorry for the photo dump!
