Delightful!















Pure delightful! I have just returned home yesterday. And it was so nice to have some time with Benjamin. Not to have any worries or cares was pure medicine!
Thank you all for your sweet good bye notes! This was my first time in San Diago, and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Davene, I can see why you loved living there!


I have to tell you all a little secret, not only did we go to San Diago, but we also went on a cruise! We left San Diago's harbor and headed to Cabo San Lucas. We got such an amazing deal....... $200 a person!!!! Four nights.....food and everything! It was a carnival ship. It was one of those last minute sales!!! So I didn't actually stay in San Diago :) I feel so full right now! Not only that, but lazy too! The food was very tasty! It is a really good idea to take a cruise while you are pregnant! Everything you might be craving is just a little walk away :) he he he he! Here are a few pictures.... Oh yeah, we went snorkeling in Cabo San Lucas.......not a very good idea in winter!!!! Oh my WORD! It was so COLD! :) I will never forget that temperature! 

The day we were leaving San Diago back to Scottsdale, we found out that Nathan my brother happened to be in San Diago as well! He was there for work! That was very humerus.....what a small world we live in! So we met up with him for a couple of hours =)

                          A beautiful view from our ship
                    Just before we felt that cold water! :)

Hosanna..........

You must listen to this beautiful song. The words are so powerful. Trust me, this wont be the last time you listen to this song.......... :)

Heal my heart and make it clean.... Open up my eyes to the things unseen....... Show me how to love like you have loved me...... break my heart for what breaks yours........ Everything I am for your kingdom's cause....... As I walk from earth into Eternity.

Happy Valentines Day!!!

I had a lovely Valentines Day this year! (I say that every year...... :)
I gave my kids (the kids I look after) a fun Valentine tea party. I made bunt cakes with Nuetella as frosting and a lot with pink frosting. I was very shaky when I frosted them, so they look really dorky, but they still tasted really good! It was very yummy! Here are a couple of pictures. Sorry they aren't very good, because I had to use my computer, I left my camera at home =(.

Sunny.........


....... and breezy is the forecast.
Today 72 was the high. It is so beautiful out. I am getting excited to go swimming in our pool this summer! 
Ruthie and I went garage sailing this morning and while we were out looking we found a beautiful outside swing. It has a cover and its still in really good condition. The people who were selling it hardly ever used it and kept it in nice condition. 
So I am outside enjoying the lovely weather today! =) (trying to get a tan!)
My sympathies go out to everyone who is tired of the snow! Be encouraged spring is on the way!

Fertile Crescent.........


I have been reading a book called "The Conquest of Civilization" By James Henry Breasted. Its an older book and very interesting. The author is well known for his excellent chapter on Egypt. I am still currently reading it; and I am on Western Asia: Babyonia. Its talking about the very beginning (of civilization). I have also been reading and studying the Bible at the same time. So much history is happening! It is so amazing to learn all of this! I learned a lot of this in school, but not this detailed...... I also think it is very important to know your geography and history when studying the Bible. This did happen...........! And we didn't just magically acquire the Bible! People lived and breathed in whole different time! I love history!!!!!!!  :)
