So, its not Thursday, but I have things to be thankful for!

What a wonderful family my Lord has given me. It hasn't always been easy, but Ian and I have been married 8 years this next Tuesday. So, I am thankful for:
The eight years I have had with my Husband,
The two beautiful children the Lord has blessed me with,
The several churches we have had the opportunity to minister in over the years,
My wonderful parents and in-laws who have been there for us over the 8 years of marrage,
The wonderful home the Lord has blessed us with,
and the wonderful friends who have been faithful over the years even when we haven't seen each other in such a long time.
And not at all the least of these, God's Faithfulness through it all.

Even More Snow

So, we thought that Spring had sprung, but we were wrong! It started snowing last night and hasn't stopped. Ian has already plowed us out, but its still snowing so it won't be the last time today!
Isaac's party was suppose to be today, but since we are stuck at home today, we won't be having it. So, once again we will have to reschedule. Keep an eye out for pictures from that.
Brr..its cold here, hope you are all warm.
I'll be back soon with more fun information.

Day in the ER

Tuesday around 2 p.m. Ian's Mom called me at work, and said that Ian was having trouble breathing and had chest pain. They wanted to know what to do. I connected them directly with the nurse (perks of working at a Doctors office), and they were told to go to the ER. At 2:30 p.m. Ian had been put on oxygen and was in a lot of pain still. They were able to start a series of blood tests and once that was done they started nitro. Nitro is for people having heart attacks to help calm the heart muscle. After 3 of those and 3 blood test and 7 1/2 hrs in the ER they sent us home. He is going for a stress test on Thursday Morning at 7:45 a.m. Ian was extreamly tired after the day and was ready to go to bed when we got home after 10 last night, but I was wired. I finally fell asleep and got back up at 6:30 a.m. for work.
Somewhere in the middle of all the ER events I went down and took my first quiz for my CNA class. I got a 100% which made me happy, and I got my homework for Thursday. Crazy week!
I thank the Lord for such great in-laws who put themselves out for us to help with the kids. If it weren't for them I would have been alone it it all cause no one else lives close enough to help. God is good!

Back to School

Well, this past week I went back to school. I am enrolled in the Adult Education here in town. I am taking the first of many classes it seems. I am currently taking a CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) class. I am not sure which class I will take next, but I think it will be in January. A Phlebotomy class (blood sucker). It makes for two very long days during the week, but I will be done in June, so it shouldn't be too bad. At least I will have my Summer off.

Ian and the kids are doing well. Isaac just had his third birthday (with a party to come). Anna is excited cause her birthday is coming up now. They are both anxious for the snow to go away, but since it is still very much here, it may take a while to melt. Anna is always commenting on how she wants Spring to come. In this picture you can see my Dad's truck, which won't be moving any time soon. : )
