Prayer Request

Yikes, This post is a little hard to write.
It's easy to ask my prayer warrior friends for prayers of others that I know, but this time I have a prayer request for me. Yesterday afternoon, I went for my yearly exam. During the pap exam they found a mass. The doctor continued with the exam but has asked me to come back in 2 weeks for an ultrasound so that he can look in my uterus for any more polyps or masses. Two of the three scenarios he gave me required surgery.....not really my thing! :) Naturally, I fear the worst, but I am trying really hard to let God have my worry so I can focus on being the mommy and wife my family needs me to be. I promise to update you when I get more news. But for now, all I ask is that you add me and my family to your prayers. Thank you for lifting me up to our Father...the Great Healer!!!

Okay, So I know it's been a LOOOONG time since I posted last. But a lot has happened so I will try to catch up as best I can!
We are now in our house!!!! Can I get a WHOOP WHOOP!?!?! :) After a long 18 months of living in 5 houses and out of suitcases and boxes...we are now (almost) box free!! The girls are loving their own rooms and the play room. I love that they have their own rooms so I can have some down time on occasion. God has blessed us greatly!! Now.....we need visitors! (Come when you can...there's PLENTY of room and we would LOVE to have you!!!!)
This is part of our kitchen from the stairs. I love the red ceiling!!! There aren't counters in this picture...but we have them now! ;)

This is our bedroom. And yes...the bed is HUGE!And it's not even all of it...there is a metal canopy that goes on the top. Be careful what you buy on Craigslist! :) (We thought it was 1/2 the size!! hehe!)
This is our dining's actually just after a shower so there are still "party ware" laying around! :)

This is the "top of the stairs."When I drew out our house plans, I REALLY underestimated how much space this was! :) Lucky for us we turned it into a sitting area with books and scrapbooks! We use it's great!

This is the formal living room. The fireplace wall goes straight up to the ceiling. (About 18 feet!! It was scary up there while painting! EEK!

This is the master's still not put together! :) We use the sink in the hall bath for now! Time....just don't have enough of it! :)

This is my FAVORITE closet! :) A place for everything and everything in it's place!!!!
This is my favorite wall of my closet! :) Haha! Love my shoes!!!
Tatum's Room...her room is BRIGHT!!! But it's her! :)

Eden's room! You can't tell from this picture, but her room is pink and brown hounds tooth....and it's always a mess. :)
