1. Zach's backpack is from Target (one of his favorite places). He was too cute walking around the airports with it. He would tell me it was too heavy, and I told him everyone has to carry his own luggage. Mean momma. ; )
2. It was fun hearing from some skiers out there! Wonderful and hilarious memories can be made on a ski trip. Some of my best times were on trips to Colorado with Jason and our friends in high school. We were so care-free and clueless. ; )
3. It's wonderful having Colson back home! His smile, his laugh, his rolls. He completes our family on earth.
4. Z is thrilled to have his little brother back, too. It may be because he gets away with more things when Colson is around. Ha! All he wants to do is entertain him. ; )
5. Several friends have received devastating news about their babies inside of them or lost babies recently. My heart aches for them.
6. I am so thankful for friends I have met through my computer. The LORD has brought amazing women into my life, some I consider close friends. He brings you to mind throughout my day. Many of you have walked faithfully by my side for 18 months. Thank you.
7. It's hard to go back to the gym after having a week off! I had to pry myself out of bed this morning.
8. This snowman makes me smile.
9. We are throwing Hillary a shower for Sadie in a few weeks, and I'm so excited!
10. Z and I were looking out the window, and I said, "Zach, look at all the beautiful snow." He said, "I'm ready to see green grasses."

He brought you out with a strong hand and redeemed you from the place of slavery.

So glad you had fun on your trip!!! :-) I hope I'm able to take little family vacations like that soon.. Hopefully when our little ones are a bit older. I loved reading your thoughts today! I hope you have a wonderful week!

LOL Z i am totally ready to see green grasses too hahahaha

check out that ginormous snowman OMG it is as big as Jason and Z lol love it :) I am having a rough day and this post made me smile!

I love that ya'll went sking and LOL about Z saying that about his backpack. I think it must be a toddler thing cause Kelcee had juice and her snacks in hers and when we were traveling to JHU last month she said hers was to heavy too hahahah

OK so skiing is so fun...I have many funny memories of sking I can't wait to get better to take well Greg said we can go next year and I can watch and they can ski that will be so fun for me to see her smile but who knows I may be in remission by then :)

I loved reading all your random thoughts today! I am so glad we have become friends and I consider you a close friend :)

I will pray for your friends and their babies and as always you know I pray for you and think of sweet REESE all the time

We went to Hawaii in August and I spent WAY too much $$ on a backpack at Pottery Barn for Rhett. Right after we got back, we were walking through Target and he spotted Lightning McQueen. I could have kicked myself for not looking there first. Everytime we go down that aisle, he want's that Lightning bag!

Heather said...

I love that snowman, too....I had a hard time going to the gym this morning as well...and I had NOT been on vacation if that makes you feel better! ha! AND---I am blessed having "met" you through my computer!

It felt so good weekend before last when we got a glimpse of Spring. Warms my soul!

I think about you alot, and you are in my prayers all the time.

We just found out a teacher at school lost her baby this weekend at 7 months pregnant. I'm so devastated for her because she is 41 and this was her first child. I know two other girls in the same's truly so sad.

Donna said...

Looks like you had a marvelous time Katie!!! -but as for me...I'm with Zach...ready to see green!!!

Skiing counts as exercise!!! Thanks for sending me the recipes. I love it and will remember to tell Evie when she is older that she has to carry her own luggage.

Mommarazzi said...

That's a pretty awesome snowman! And a pretty smart 3 year old! Hilarious. I am also ready for green grasses here in Texas.

We lived in Colorado Springs before we moved to Arkansas. We could drive to Breckenridge in 2 hours! We L-O-V-E-D it! We often talk about going back and taking Grady skiing. We hope to do day!
I have fun memories of skiing during my collge days too. We were BROKE and clueless...8 people piled in one hotel room, etc...Good times!

Cute, cute suitcase!

I love that your family had devotional time together. What a blessing it is to have a family like that. I do not. :(

I can't believe all of the snow you're getting this year!

I agree with Zach on #10!!! 500%

Melanie Mueller said...

That snowman rocks!! =) Love Zach's cute comment! We are ready for spring too and we barely have a winter. ;)

Carolina Girl said...

Just to expand on my comment...I think one of the reasons I'm so drawn to you and your blog is because of how spiritual you and your family are. You encourage in the best ways because of your faith. Thanks for being part of my blog family! :)
