The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:4-9

Our family is a circle of strength and love, with every birth and every union, the circle will grow, every joy shared adds more love, every crisis faced together, makes the circle stronger

a week at the beach

What an awesome vacation we had at the beach. A much needed one!!! Let me go ahead and say again... we didnt get the results we had wished for from the IUI. It helped being at the beach to help take my mind off of it. I left all my cares and worries at home and really enjoyed myself with my family. God knew how much I needed to be there with family and what a blessing it was. I really had my hopes up high this month! We are taking this month off from shots and Chad has an appointment with a urologist this month... hoping to get some answers and maybe even a quick fix!!! I want to be pregnant SO BAD!! Anyways not giving up... must keep pushing forward. My faith is strong and I know God will answer my prayers.... patience.... patience......

The beach was awesome. Out of 7 days there was only one day that it rained off/on all day. It was so nice to get up in the mornings, relax, head to the beach, nap, and then some good eatin!! Thats pretty much how we did it :) Sam LOVED the beach, he could have just played in the sand and waves all day. Now he is lookin like a little ginger bread man! I love little dark haired boys with a tan! We stayed up late, found some great seashells, caught a little crab named 'Hermie" who btw didnt make it :( ate some GREAT food, played the Wii, soaked up some sun..... ok you get it. IT WAS AWESOME. I wanna go back now.

Took lots of pictures as usual......
