Busy Days...

Sorry! No pictures to post! We are in the midst of packing so our house is not the most scenic picture spot right now!

We are doing good! Darren is lots of fun and endless entertainment as usual!

Today, I confess, I have felt very pregnant! I didn't have morning sickness, I had ALL-DAY sickness! Such perfect timing too since I am supposed to be packing everything we own to move in less than 2 weeks! Oh well, we will get it done somehow. And I am VERY HAPPY to be expecting, nausea or not!

Dan is SUPER busy too. He is always super busy, but now adding the overseeing of a remodeled house in just 2 1/2 weeks makes life very hectic for him. Please pray he will still manage to get enough sleep to function!

We are thankful to God for the opportunity of the house He has provided us with!

More later. If you want to see a quick video of the house we are fixing up, I can't seem to post a youtube link on here, but the name of the video is "video of inside of house" under helencallaghan1.

Mommy and Darren's Bible time...

Reading the Bible is the GREATEST way to start any day!

I want Darren to learn to LOVE that time as a young boy. We got him a little Bible this past Christmas. Most mornings when I read, I ask him to go get his little Bible from his church bag.
We sit at the table and I read a few verses for him, with great drama! I want him to ENJOY Bible time! We always sing a couple verses in Psalms. He likes it when Mommy "sings" the Bible!
I also write about what I read. So I got him a little notebook to "write with Mommy."
That is always a special time for me. LOVE to see my son gain a respect for a time with God and His Word!

It's Been a While!

WOW! It's been a while since I posted! We have a LOT going on for us right now.

We were just given 30 days to move out of our apartment, our landlords want it back! ...BUT, God had better plans. He is giving us a HOUSE to rent!!!

It's a "fixer-upper" but we are going to be able to use some of our rent to fix it up! Dan knows the owners and God just really opened up the door for us. We are SOOOOO happy to be done "apartment shopping." That was getting depressing! God just spoils us!

Another BIG blessing for our family is that we are expecting our 2nd child at the first of December! We are SOOO happy about another little one on the way!!

Anyways, I am in the midst of packing but I will try to post as frequently as possible and get a few new pictures soon!

More pictures...

Here are some more pictures.

Here are a couple of Darren on Easter Sunday.

He got a little plastic magnetic fishing pole set from "The Easter Bunny" (aka-Dad and Mom). He thought that was the GREATEST thing ever. He also got a nice little Easter basket from church!

Darren is just TOO cute these days!

As I was doing my devotions this morning, I looked over by the couch, (Because Darren was quiet!) and saw that he had gotten his Bible out of his Sunday bag and was "reading" too!! Sweet!

Darren's cousin, Liberty, also came over to play with him this morning. They had SO much fun. He loves "ity," as he calls her.

He was pretending to ride a bike, I looked over...and this video will show you how creative he got with his headgear...

We only have a few pull-ups left in the house. I only put them on him at night time, since he still has a hard time remembering that sometimes. Anyways, he is TOO Funny!
