STRENGTH because God gives you everything you need. I can do everything through Him who gives me strength.
CONFIDENCE because God made you who you are. God saw all that He had made, and it was very good.

Such Personality!

John and I lately are always laughing at Gabriel. He has started to develop his own unique personality. So last night while Gabriel and I were in his room putting away his toys and getting ready for bed, he found this sticker, and so I hear him say " Mom, you are wondering this aren't you!" and so I turned around and this is what I found..... Hahahahahahaha!!!! He is so funny! He must have thought he did something funny and I would be like "Why do you have sticker on your face!" Hahahaha...that sticker entertained him the entire time I cleaned his room ( that i think about it...maybe I was played into cleaning his room without his help!) He would stick it on his ear and on his forehead, it was funny!

GO RoCk AuTiSm!!!!

I have to share with you!!! I got this award or plaque in the mail over the weekend and I was so SURPRISED and EXCITED!!!! I already knew that I had an awesome team that God provided me with but this was just a little bit of reminder how much God did this past year! We were able to raise a little over $4000.00 and it blesses my heart to know how much good that will do, all the 100 day packets that can now be mailed out to families just diagnosed with Autism, how it will help generate more research and also how it will fund for more awareness ads! I am honored that God gave me this opportunity!
"Speak up for those who cannot Speak for themselves" Proverbs 31:8a
We have just begin our fundraising and awareness events for 2010!!! This was just a little bit of encouragement to go all out to reach our community and bring HOPE to the families with Autism! God has a plan and He knows the missing piece to this disorder!
Thanks to all those who have supported our team in 2009 and if you didn't get a chance you have an opportunity to do so now :)
If you would like to donate...I will be walking again at the Richmond Speedway on Oct. 2, 2010 and this year my personal goal is to raise $500.00 please check out my web page!
if you want to join my team go to


As Nana would say... "Out of the mouth of Babes!"

Tonight after I got Gabe out of the bath I went to grab his pajamas I forgot to grab from his room...when I walked back I stopped to hear him talking to the bubbles that were almost all drained out of the tub...(he just got a new bottle of Spiderman Bubbles and it makes lots of bubbles!) It was the cutest thing ever...He was saying "Good Bye Bubbles, Thanks for playing with me!"
I just love him to death and the simplicity of his heart and mind!

Updated Pictures

If you double click the pictures it will allow you to enlarge them to see them better. These are pictures in our front yard on Sunday.

Easter Sunday

Easter was really great this year. God is so faithful to always fill holes. We always tends to feel a bit sad when it comes to holidays and not have all our family with us. This year also brought the first holiday without Nana and Papa John, which was hard.
Despite this all God filled our home with so many lovely people! We were truly blessed to have a joyous time of fellowship! The weather was warm and sunny! We had lots of food,dessert,fun and lots of music! The best part was when Brandon brought his guitar outside and we all sat around singing worship songs...Gabriel was in heaven! Poor Brandon was probably so tired when he left..but a trooper..he played his guitar, jumped around and sang every song Gabe requested...many more then 10
It was a blessed day!

What happens when you leave Destinee and Cyrenity alone with a CaMeRa??
