wife. mom. adjunct professor. we homeschool. i'm a little bit OCD. i love math. bright colors and geometric designs make me drool. we live with a medical rarity, and Jesus saved his life. through that, Jesus is changing us. The american dream and status quo is overrated...and sometimes just plain wrong. our lives, our family, our careers, our faith are all now filtered through a new lens-- thank you Jesus. welcome to our crazy. feel free to take some of it with you, we have plenty to go around.
It's not the load that breaks you down; it's the way you carry it.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.-- Jesus Christ

party...crash.

the party...is over.  and we crashed yesterday afternoon.  it was an uneventful event- in the best of ways..no big problems...lots of good presents, none so big that we had to get rid of things to keep them.  i don't have pictures of everything, but i will post a few.  the only big toy i can think of that isn't pictured is this nice wooden fire station my friend crystal got sawyer-- she works for a company that manufactures toys...so she always gets some good stuff.  sawyer's favorite, by a landslide, is the gun set a couple of my students got him....i think he might like it better than the trampoline...or perhaps it's a tie.  he slept with the rifle the night of his party.  he cried when i wouldn't let him take it into church on sunday.  he plays w/ it all the time....shooting bears...and deer...imaginary, of course.  when we told him there was a squirrel (or a squee-uhl as he would say)...on the deck and that he could shoot it...he pretended, ONCE. then he said, "no, we can't shoot THAT squee-uhl.  we can only shoot squee-uhls in the house." so...idk how good of a hunter he will be. :)  perhaps he is too soft-hearted.  we shall see.  so here are the pics...it was a good time. blowing out the candles on our monkey cupcake
the cool gun and hat and handkerchief some of my students got sawyer...this is the pistol..he really loves the rifle...those are my students in the background.
the trampoline in all of its glory
the monkey cake...easy.

the monkey cupcakes...they took FOREVER to frost.
