Something about me


I have made a discovery, I am the kind of girl that needs markers in my life. I realized this when my dh showed me the mark on our shower faucet that sets it back to off. This may seem silly but I have been frustrated with this new faucet. After finally figuring out the hot/cold locations it broke. Woo hoo I thought, time to get a new one, one I can easily understand. But no my increasingly handy hubby fixed it. He then showed me the arrow (wether it was there before or in the wrong spot I don't know) to know exactly when it is off and the subtle tips for regulating the temp. This morning I went to get out of the shower and looked for that arrow, that is when I realized I appreciate a good marking system. One that is not just a word or a verbal instruction but one to which I can refer every time. One that does not change. Not unlike the word of God. I can depend on the Bible to direct me, clarify, and the best part of all, it is always there. God's word is a marker for me.

First SNOW on the Mountain





Well, Dan and I have officially gotten moved in. We left the lowlands of East Bremerton/Silverdale area and moved up to the mountain, Green Mountain that is in Bremerton(per the post office) but more like, Seabeck or Camp Union.I think we are actually closer to Belfair now though. We had our first snow on Monday. The girls were so excited, Dan and I on the other hand were nervous to drive in it,now that we live on the mountain. A few more hills than we used to have down in the valley. But we made it fine to our small group meeting. And were suprised to see less snow anywhere,compared to what we had. I guess that is part of the mountain experience. The temp. didn't rise much above the 30's on Tuesday so the girls went out to play in the snow. They found a sled under the back porch and had a good ol' time on the sled hill as it is now being called. It was weird not getting them all dressed for the snow like in days past. They are growing up, they even made their own hot cocoa when they came in. Maybe next time I will venture out to have some fun with them. It's been a while since I went sledding and built a snow man. I need to remember those things aren't just for kids........

Also in these pics is the lovely Thanksgiving dinner prepared for us by Barbara Bell. What a wonderful dinner we had with them. We are so thankful for their hospitality. While in Cali, we were so excited to get to see Mariah. Thank God her mom let her come and stay with us for a while during this busy time of year!!! The girls (not only them but Dan and I too) were so glad to see their sister after so many years. They miss her much.

Hello, Well we are back from our trip to california. It was great to see our friends and family!! Wish we could have stayed longer than a day with you all!! But we are thankful to have gotten to see you. Just a few pics of our trip. This was my first attempt at posting with pics so I will do more later. But one is of Rebekah holding the mistletoe she got from an oak tree in Etna,CA. Dan told the girls that when he was little he got some and sold it to people. My little entrepreneur is all ready to follow in her fathers footsteps. She sold her first couple of sprigs right away to Beths family members who hosted us at a bonfire and quad riding on Sat. The pic of Dan is him opening his new and long awaited computer. It was like christmas morning!! I am so thrilled for him to finally have it. He is going to enjoy it a ton!!
