Cody is sick. But Happy Halloween!

Well, last weekend, Cody and I got sick with something kinda like a nasty cold. I'm not totally sure what it is, but my sore throat and fever are gone, and Cody's runny nose and congested cough are worse this weekend than last. Poor Kid. He can hardly sleep because he's so stuffed up. We're running the humidifier, squirting little saline drops in his nose, and sucking him clean with the aspirator bulb... The little guy's tough, but we just feel so helpless. He's woken up with a few crusty/bloody noses and has a hard time even eating or sucking on his nuk when he's real stuffed up.  Any tips from the mamas out there are welcome :) 

I feel bad because we've just been tooling him around everywhere. Friday night was the Family Fun Night at church, and I had him outside for like 4 hours yesterday when I was up at CCU for a photo thing at their Harvest Carnival. He is eating and sleeping a lot today, which is good. I stayed home from church with him to try to get as much indoor, not-going-anywhere, rest time as we could before he's got to come everywhere with me and the girls this week. It is so hard to see him suffer... I'm sure this is one of the things that doesn't get easier the more kids you have. You just have more to feel sorry for not being able to help :( 

Love, hugs and kisses from the sweet baby cowboy!










Isn't he the cutest little guy?




Man, I sure am in LOVE with my husband. He is a great friend, and an excellent father!

Having fun when you're not having fun.

What it feels like to parent on a daily basis, completely exhausted.  Yet, still determined to get through the day. 

Hope you get a kick out of this as much as I did. :) Laughing out loud over here.

Alopecia | Be a light in the Dark, 2 Corinthians 4

The other day in reading during my quiet time, I was revisiting 2 Corinthians. I was thinking, Tim and I have spent many an hour thinking a lot, about a lot. There are so many ugly and awful things going on across the globe, and across our front door. Our mission field is in Northern MN with Native Americans. In this ministry, we have stumbled through some thick, difficult situations. I am certain you can all attest to difficult times being just that: difficult. The Lord doesn't bring us into circumstances just to drag us along, seeing us become battered and bruised, but it IS His priority to bring glory to His name. We are His chosen ones, and our privilege is to sing Hallelujah to His name!

Anyway, I was thinking that we have faced difficulties. One thing that I wanted to share with you today is about my health.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Alopecia. This was saddening and drove me and Tim crazy for three years. One day, I found a bald spot on my …

Celebrating 8 years | Marriage

Tim and I were blessed with a lovely weekend away on the North Shore, back to where it all began. Here is a photo from one of our days up there. We hiked at Tettegouche State Park, and couldn't have asked for better weather or fall colors!
