praying for stellan...

i don't have anything orange that fits me right now but you'd better believe that today i'm thinking about and praying for little Stellan. his surgery is scheduled to take place this morning in boston, actually it should be going on right now. i can't even imagine what mckmamma is feeling right now. i can't even fathom sending my baby into heart surgery at such a young age. yet we know that she has Christ to lean on in this difficult time... and we know that Christ will be right there guarding little Stellan's heart. i pray for peace, i pray for knowledge for the doctors, i pray that there is an amazing miracle to take place today. i just pray... and wait... and pray some more.

it's the simple things...

i'm sitting here while my girls enjoy breakfast, enjoying my own breakfast of sorts. eating some paska (easter bread) with yummy cream cheese icing (i know, very healthy... what can i say, the baby likes it!), and sipping on a hot chai latte. and i'm happy. just sitting here enjoying my chai is very nice indeed. just had to share!

this is me enjoying a cup of chai latte during the winter months.

i'm going to turn into one of these soon! seriously... i have a crazy addiction to peanut m&m's right now. they are SO deceptively delicious. i have a bowl full right beside the computer and every time i sit down, i just hungrily snack away. it's terrible! normally i am not a chocolate kinda person. i like my salty snacks, that i will readily admit. but sweets? nah... i can take them or leave 'em. EXCEPT... except, when i'm pregnant. then all the normal rules fall by the wayside. so i sit here, eating my easter colored peanut M&M's and i think about how they are going straight to my hips, thighs and bum. ah well. there's always time to get rid of it all after baby #3, huh? ;) (i know, i know. things are only going to get busier)
