Bring your daughter to work day!!!

Yesterday was "Bring your child to work day". So, naturally Savannah announced that it was her turn to go. I am so thankful that my boss said that it was fine :)
Here she is taking over her new job as Division Assistant....

Doesn't she look like a proffessional?! My baby girl is "all grown up".

I wanted to tell you all that I am so sorry I haven't posted this week. I was talking with my friend the other day and we were adding up stresses in my life....
All I have to say is, "It doesn't look good!" But, it amazes me that everything I experience through the week is another post that I could write about....
If I just had the time!
With each new experience, I find myself saying "Oh! I am going to post about this tonight." Unfortunately, I am so tired by the time I get home from work that unless I post at work....there won't be a post:(
But, since this was about work I felt that it was very appropriate to post this at work! hehehehehe! Savannah's day at work is one that I will treasure for life!!!
Much love until next time!

I Have Been Blessed!!!!!!

Last night I went to a dinner party for work. It was a wonderful party....
But, as I left I found myself missing something. I couldn't figure out what the "something" was until today. Well, this morning I have come to the conclusion that life (for me & my husband) is all about my family! That's it! My children bring so much joy that I could scream from the roof tops "THANK YOU LORD!!!! I know that is a little dramatic...but, if you knew could happen! hahahahaha!
The Lord, my husband, children and grandchildren (young & old) make me complete! As I thought of something to blog about today, I found myself sorting out all the MANY pictures of my children....(and thinking of all the parties I have been to recently without a camera..hehehe!) Okay! Then I was reminded of how many people get bored with parents who show a ton of pictures of their children... However, I just want you all to note that I could sit for hours looking at anyones pictures :)
When I went to the party last night I found myself running to the wall of pictures on my friends wall. Throughout the night I kept coming back to them just to capture the joy in their eyes. My daughter Alyssa wants to be a photographer. I have always told her that a simple picture freezes a time in a persons life that no one can ever create again.
To make this short, I have to come to the conclusion that God has blessed me with a wonderful family and to not share that with others would be wrong. I was watching a interview with Martina McBride and she said just that! When God blesses you with something....your whole worlds revolves around that gift. She continued to talk about how she feels it is wrong to not share your joy with others....Martina said that it is important to share with others what God has blessed you with...and for me it's my family!
So, today here is a video of Martina McBride singing "I Have Been Blessed"......

Yeah! It's party time at Grandma's!!!!

It's party time at Grandma's!!!
So I ask you, "Does he look scary?" Some of the kids thought so at first. It was James 2nd birthday and we decided to make it special by hiring a clown. I thought I would share with you our fun day! It was only a short time and the kids wanted to see who this new friend was....

Josiah was one of the first to jump up and get his face done =) My oh my! What a brave boy!

One would think he was getting his tooth pulled! lol

"Look at me Grandma! I'm a puppy! Just like Buddy! (our dog) hahahaha!
Alyanna (granddaughter) was too shy to get her face painted....Okay...who's next?

Gabryel couldn't wait! He hopped up and wanted to be a clown....He kinda looks like one...don't ya think? hehehehehe

Josh yells, "Look at me! I'm spider man!" All I could do was agree.....

Savannah wanted to look like our cat "Princess". She does look like a "Princess"...

Not James.....He wanted nothing to do with this entire game! Micah couldn't keep him in the chair! hahahahahaha! Party pooper!

Not Elyjah! "Guess what I am grandma?" Can anyone guess? hehehehe

So the day continued and the clown had everyones attention.....James was so excited he could hardly sit down =)

The girls got cleaned up and had to end the party looking pretty!

I hope you all enjoyed our party??!! We sure did! hehehehehe

The newest member to our family!!!

Mr. & Mrs. Albertsen!!!!

I have wonderful news!

There is a new addition to our family!

Her name is Abby Lehman. It brings me to tears to see them.
Josiah is no longer my boy. He is now a man :0
As I look at him I wonder, "Where did all the years go?" It seems like yesterday and he was jumping off the couch like Superman. I remember taking Josiah to the store and walking straight over to the toy section and then hearing the sound of his voice as he discovered that there was a new Ninja Turtle.....Can any of you relate? Or am I really that old?! LOL
Abby will be a wonderful (and much needed) member to our family. The date is set for sometime in May 2008.

Thanks for all your prayers =)

Hi Everyone!
I'm doing much better...thanks Diane for posting an update =) As most of you know I was in the hospital due to some stomach problems (and of course an abnormal EKG). I will be going into the Hospital on Thursday to undergo some more tests. The Doctors will be checking for ulcers and an upper hernia. The inflamation caused an abnormal heart beat. But, everything seems to be beating regular now...
I know what you all must be thinking....
"Now what Diana?" It is so frustrating to have something always giving out in your body:(
One thing is for sure.....
Thanks so much for all of your prayers :)
Please continue?!
God bless!
