Busy always!

Well, I continue to put my blog on the back burner. Dang Facebook!!! So I guess I have not updated all summer. Since my last update we have really not done that much. Our highlight of the summer was our beach vacation. Interesting in more ways than one. Now, we are back to school, extra activities and much much more! Sydney is doing competition cheer, gymnastics, Awana's, girl scouts (if we ever get any information)...seems like there is more, but that is sure enough!! Carson is just along for the ride. He does church on Wednesday and that's about the extent of his activities. Alan and I just started the Financial Peace University with our church by Dave Ramsey. There are no words as to how excited I am about his class. I am so ready to be debt free and make smarter choices about where our money goes and pay for everything in CASH!! I've got my cash flow statement ready and to be implemented for October!! Exciting stuff!! HA I'm such a nerd about all of this. The Dave Ramsey videos are funny, entertaining and full of Dave Ramsey knowledge about money. I laugh through the whole would you think it was possible to have a sense of humor when it comes to money, but he keeps it very entertaining and captivating.

Since my last post also, Alan has hit his 3 year mark with Cancer. WOW, he has been living with this stuff for 3 years. That is absolutely amazing. We continue to give God all of our blessings for such a miracle and we also have some pretty awesome doctors to thank as well! This was my post on Facebook about Alan's 3 year mark:

"Dear Cancer,
It's been 3 years since our 1st date. During these three years, you have bruised, broken and ravaged my husbands body. You have made his appearance change many times. So much at times, that some didn't even recognize him. Basically, you have turned our world upside down. But, let me tell you what you haven't done and never will....stole our faith in the ultimate healer or broken our spirit. We will never stop fighting or believing. We know God has a plan for all of us!"


Also, I'd like to announce that Alan and I will be celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary Thursday, September 22nd!! WOW Actually, it will be 15 years together....WOW...ha!! Happy Anniversary Alan! I love you! Every year on our anniversay, I think of 9/11. I will never forget getting ready to go make the final food arrangment for our wedding when these crazy planes started hitting the towers. It was awful watching it and disbelief was everywhere. Alan and I had a candle lit during our wedding in honor and memory of the victims of 9/11. That was the least we could do.

Hopefully a new post is on the Horizon!
