Houston, we have a problem

I have hit a glitch in my blogging capabilities. Apparently, my computer has only about 500 megabytes of space left on it. I have been informed not to put anymore pictures, music, etc. onto my piece of garbage! So that leaves me a little stuck for my blog and my poor lonely ipod!! We will be looking into purchasing a new computer soon, but those kind of purchases tend to take a back seat to the needs of 6 children and the coming attraction! So my future blogs will probably not include too many pictures. ARRGG!!!!! If anyone has any suggestions on how to get a good computer on a tight budget, I am open to ideas. As I look over the checkbook, I am not sure how a computer fits in so it may be a while. In the meantime, I can read your blogs and check my email and I suppose I need to be content with just that. A bit frustrating, but not the end of the world. If fact just typing this and rereading it has given me some clearly needed perspective on that which are "needs" and that which are "wants." I sound a little spoiled complaining about computer space. And on that note of confession, I must sign off and go repent!!!

Happy Birthday Tyler!!!

Today Tyler is 6!! As I reflect over the last 6 years, I am so excited about the hope that I have for Ty. This child gave the terrible 2's their name!! It started at 18 months and continued until about 3 and 1/2. A rough couple of years for us. Now he is the most amazing child. So kind and sweet, with a heart for worship like no other. As I watch his relationship with the Lord grow and change, I am so excited to see what God has for him. We love you Ty Ty French Fry!! Happy Birthday big guy!!!

5 little monkeys sitting on a couch!!

This past week we enjoyed a wonderful visit to the Barker's. I forgot my camera, but my Amazing friend Sam took these for me. Here is one of the few shots in existence of all of the boys together. It is no small feat to get them all to sit still for the time it takes to get a picture.

Brandon and Faith were SO cute that day. Well they are so cute everyday!!!
I will update with Christmas pictures shortly. Although, we purchased a new video camera this year so I didn't get as many still shots as usual.
As for me, I feel good. First trimester down, two to go!!! I am due July 15. We have now told the kids and they are so excited. For the first couple of days, Tyler didn't want to leave my side in case the baby came!! We finally convinced him he will not miss anything! It would be a long six months for him otherwise! Well I will be back in a few days with the Christmas pictures.
