I am happily married to an amazing military man who spent 9 years enlisted and is now an Officer in the US Army. We have two amazing boys who are not so little any more! They still infuse every moment of every day with creativity and energy, and make my life an adventure.  I was educated at home, and am now teaching our children - second generation homeschoolers! I try every day to become more like Jesus Christ, and to love like HE does. If you want you can try and catch me at bethylovesandy@yahoo.com

My Blog Title Verse

"For the Lord gives wisdom. From His mouth come knowledge and understanding." Proverbs 2:6 NKJV 
The Message translation puts it this way "God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding."

Happy 7th Birthday Canaan


I was going to write a beautiful post about how seven years ago this beautiful boy made me a mother.
And really, I am so glad that he did. I CANNOT imagine life without him.
But I have a sore throat, and an aching head, it is after 1am, and I still have to wrap the presents, and make a cake in the morning, plus I promised him whatever he wanted for breakfast.
I sure do wish Andy would get home from work...
In the meantime, enjoy a small slideshow of Canaan over the last seven year.

Seems just like yesterday.

We made him just like Daddy, right from the beginning.
Not that it was hard - he looks just like him!

Right around his first birthday. Those pics aren't digital, so you get what you get!

This was right before Daddy left for a year in Korea.
I held onto this picture a lot while he was gone.


I love this picture - before Andy cut off all his curls!
This was just a couple months after he turned two.

The new big brother.
Third birthday mohawk
What, you never heard of that tradition?

Just a cute one... about 3 1/2

He caught his first fish on his fourth birthday.

Already has the "sweater attitude"...

Fifth - the addiction begins

but he got a bike too!

And a week later, was in my sister's wedding.

Last year was a huge party - we're going a little less crazy this year.

Last fall

Last week
