4. Become debt free & build security for my family, so we can then bless others financially also.

5. Continue to grow closer to God, building My family's faith & sharing the Gospel with those we meet, by using the talents and gifts God has provided us.

6.Continue to make money by creating and sharing my thoughts and beliefs through artistic expression: all the while hoping that my art will impact others. "Holly Kennedy

: All I know is, if you don't figure out this something, you'll just stay ordinary, and it doesn't matter if it's a work of art, or a taco, or a pair of socks! Just create something... new, and there it is, and it's you, out in the world, outside of you, and you can look at it, or hear it, or read it, or feel it... and you know a little more about... you. A little bit more than anyone else does... Does that make any sense at all?" Quote from PS I LOVE YOU

It's a ....

20 weeks!

We have made it halfway! And today we found out that we are having a BOY!
We are super excited to hear this news. I have always felt that I was carrying a boy. Really had no doubt! Wierd how that goes, huh! John was not hurt one bit about being wrong. He is excited to have another male in the house and now he won't be so out numbered! We are really thrilled and I feel like a new mommy! Suddenly, my apprehension of being a mommy again has passed and I am already dreaming of holding my son in my arms! MY SON! Wow! My life wouldn't be complete without him and I am suddenly anxious for October to come and him to be here. I feel better each day about Joslyn being a big sister and I am so very sure that she will be a good one. Although, I am fairly sure that she is going to get him in trouble more than once! They will be close in age and I am already praying that they will be close at heart too! I so so so love my younger brother and pray that they have a bond unbreakable by the world's trials and failures. I hear that momma's and baby boy's have a remarkable closeness! I am looking forward to that! Joslyn depends so much on me still, but everyday I see her become more and more independent and I miss our sweet closeness!

So I am going to torture you guys a little while longer and not say the name just yet! My family knows but we are going to have a little more fun and hold out on you! Please keep praying for our family as we go through the other half of this pregnancy and try and get ready for this little miracle!

We love you all and appreciate your prayers and support!
