Side Bar

Not often do I share my true personal thoughts and feelings but on this day I am.  On this day I have been struggling more then others and I have always done better when writing about it.  Without getting into the nitty gritty here is just the basis of my recent thoughts. 

I am not faithful.  Why would he bless me if I am not faithful like I should be?  Does God love each of his children more then the other? Does he have a favorite?  I am one that has been use to being Grandma's favorite or actually enjoying the company of my teachers, some call that a brown noser but  I have really always liked my teachers.  Although, I long for it with my whole heart I never feel there, I always feel a plant away. 

Don't get me wrong I know I have been plenty blessed with an amazing husband and every point of my pregnancy with Gracie and getting her here.  So I have seen the blessings poor in, I have had those moments where I have seen his work in my life thru high school and college.  In hard lessons and thru struggles, I have seen his blessings, grace and love.  Sometimes I feel like I have not had a close moment in along time one that makes me feel close to him.  Like when you have not connected with a friend in a while but after that good conversation whether thru email, phone or over coffee.  Your heart feels full, joyful and again FULL of love.  I just want to sit down with a warm cup of Joe and talk and feel that closeness that I so need right now. 

I assume and maybe I am wrong you have felt this way too, at least I hope someone else understands where I am coming from, I pray this is a struggle I conquer.  This is one struggle I do not want to battle my whole life.

She does very well listening to instructions like don't touch and be careful.

A Few of Our Favorites

One very cold Saturday we went out for just a couple quick pictures.  Poor Gracie, she did such a great job participating.  These are a few of our favorites.

Of course we have snow it is Ohio.  We will have plenty of snow for the next couple of months and Gracie loves it.  As it started getting dark one afternoon Gracie really wanted to go outside.  I bundled her up, threw on sweats, boots and headed outside.  She absolutely loved it.

so cute

ready to go

Thankful for Family

We enjoyed a wonderful time in Cincinnati for Thanksgiving with my family and were able to meet with friends, it was a restful time.

Here Kitty, Kitty, Kitty

This fall my friend Christina helped me out a lot and watched Gracie for me.  Gracie loved playing with her son Matthew and of course Christina's 2 cats, Biscuit & Gravy:)  It would be an understatement for me to say that Gracie loves animals.  She can't get enough, do you remember Tiny Tones and Elmyra & Furball?  Well, that is what I think of when Gracie gets near a cat, she may squeeze them to death.  Here are a few cute pictures of Gracie and Biscuit.

Here Kitty, don't you want to play...

What is She Wearing...

Well, not much I guess.  This was a common practice a couple of weeks ago when PT first got started.  It was much easier and the house was still pretty warm.  Gracie loves to be involved in everything and the making of dinner is no exception.  So she did what she seems to be doing more often, pushed up a chair and began to help me make pizza for dinner.

Christmas & Santa

Although, Gracie has no idea who Santa is she was a little reluctant to let mommy put her up this strange guys lap but she did pretty good.  No good smiles but I got a picture and it was free so who cares.  We went with the K~Schenk's to Akron where they have a large amount of trees that are up for auction to raise money I believe for Children's Hospital, I could be completely wrong on this but the money goes to a good cause.  Anyway to was fun to see all the different decorated trees and Gracie loves the lights.

Molly & Pearl would have loved

Blogging No More...

Yeap that's right, I give up.  Sometime last week I tried to upload pictures.  Blogger told me that I had gone over the memory amount in pictures.  I assume this is due to the fact that when uploading them from my Mac it is not uploading them as a jpeg like it should which is much smaller, instead it has been pulling large files that Mac's produce for pictures.  Booo!  Anyway, I have neither the time or energy right now to figure it out or fix it. So, although I would love to share more on Gracie's adorable new room and the happenings in the Schenk world I will be stopping for a while, until I have the time to look into this problem further or if anyone has a solution.  I just don't have the heart to go back thru and delete old post....

so, good bye and maybe I will see you next year:)
