Currently a "bushel of boys" that I manage! While being a full-time mom and wife, I love to bake nearly anything and everything (while tasting along the way), exercise each day and challenge my body, spend time with family and friends, and most all ... enjoy the gifts and moments I get each day with my husband and four boys: Jonah, Reuben, Matthias, and Abram. Through it all, I want to come out with a smile and a heart directed towards the Lord.

"You Can't Always Get What You Want"
Last week we spent a cooler evening out on the back deck.
Maybe I should explain that both Reuben and Jonah
have a love of tennis rackets.
We have used them for the last three years of our boys' lives as guitars.
We turn on the music and rock away!
So, tennis rackets (and badminton rackets as well) are valued items.
Especially the orange tennis racket kept with the outdoor toys on the back deck.
We were playing out on the deck.
Jonah, inevitably, found the tennis racket first and was playing with it.
As soon as Reuben noticed that someone ELSE had the tennis racket, he wanted it.
He would not be consoled with the alternative rackets offered.
He wanted the 'ORANGE ONE'.
But he was going to have to wait his turn.
And he didn't want to wait.
So, he threw a fit. Which, we, as fabulous parents, took pictures of.
Because even when throwing a fit, he is so darn cute!
