In other news Amanda called me yesterday on our way home from Pasco and she thinks she should be able to get a job working in June as a life guard at one of their local pools. She was VERY excited. Swimming is right up her alley, and she says I can get a tan. It was so COOL to get a phone call from her outa the blue.
My mama is here for good. She signs on her house deal on the 27th and her things will be delivered on the 28th. She is staying with my sister for a few days and then with us for a few days. Her cats are in my guest room chilling for a few days until she gets settled. They not so sure what's going on but really handling things well. Charlotte even came out to be loved on last night.
Okay well I am going to go enjoy a second cup of coffee, something I don't recall doing for a LONG time. I'll post some new pictures soon. Have a blessed day!

I can't tell you how many times in the past few days I've kissed my little girl, told her I loved her and thanked God for blessing our life with her. Steven Curtis Chapman recently wrote, and recorded an amazing song called "Cinderella" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLYxtuC0oRk&feature=related an amazing message.
I've been reading through the thousands of comments left for the Chapmans . This was one of my favorite pieces that someone wrote:
And like the story-book Cinderella, the magic came to an end,but in a different way.
Your Cinderella exchanged her beautiful gown, not for common clothes, butfor a spotless, white robe.
Her glass slippers for a street paved with gold.Her tuxedoed attendants for a host of saints and a chorus of angels.
Her distant prince for the ever-present Prince of Peace.
Her bejeweled chariot for a heavenly mansion prepared since the foundationof the world.
And she exchanged her gleaming white horses for the reality that she neverneeds to rush off again - she is now home.
Really, the grand ball came to a close for those left behind.
But for Cinderella it is just beginning.

Our precious lil noise maker can touch the floor in her walker and has figured out how to push herself backwards! I am not sure she really gets what she is doing but knowing how quickly she catches on she will be FLYING around the kitchen in no time. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mauk_P5YZYc
Daddy is going to be so surprised how much his girl has changed. 4 more wake ups until we pick daddy up from the airport! We are so proud of our guy -- he's tied with another guy he works with for # 1 in his class!
Off to get a few things done while LeAnne is naping. I've gots lots to do to get ready for John to come home on Saturday. Being a mama definately keeps ya busy. It's the hardest yet most rewarding job EVER! I also have an interview with a staff analyst at Express Personel on Thursday. I'd appreciate your thoughts and prayers. I wish there was a way we could make it work out so I didn' t have to work because I have really enjoyed being home with our girl but I realize we have to pay the bills. I never imagined it would take this long to find something but were in a smaller town and the economy isn't the best. I am praying I will find a job where I can make enough to pay off our debt, and a job I can leave at the office at the end of the day and hurry home to my family. I have faith God will provide in His time. :-)
