{My 25th Birthday Part 3}

I’m going to start this page with this… I so need a new camera!! These pictures are so blurry! I am so sad that I dropped my best camera in the water!! 😦 Hopefully I’ll get one soon. Anyway, Narmien took me and my girls out to lunch at PF chains in walnut creek! It was so much fun and the weather was beautiful so we enjoyed walking around all the shops!

Raychel loves Narmien!
Thank you Narmien for a great afternoon!


This Summer we have a few weddings we are going to and I am so excited, because weddings are so much fun!!

Our first wedding this year was Nicole and Blake’s…

Me with my godparents (the brides grandparents.)
Poor hubby his allergies were kicking in 😦
Genesis 2:21-24
The Lord God caused the man (Adam) to fall into deep sleep;
and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’sribs and closed up the place with flesh.
Then the Lord God made a women from the rib he had taken out of man,
and he brought her to the man.
The man said,
This is now bone of my bones
and flesh of my flesh;
she shall be called women,
for she was taken out of man.
For this reason a man will leave his father and mother
and be united to his wife, and they will become one flsh.

{Play Date with Aidan and Jordan}

Early Thursday morning Brittany & Aidan come over to our place and from here we left together to head over to Marissa’s casa for a play date! The kids all had a great time, besides all of them being in a stage where none of them want to share they did pretty good hahaha! Jordan and Raychel are such girly girls, they love their princess shoes, and love pretending to be little mommies. Aidan is such a cutie pie… he was pushing the stroller and Jordan went over towards him to try to grab it from him but as soon as Aidan seen that Jordan was headed his way he took off faster then Speedy Gonzales!!!!!! Hahahahaha!! Kids are just too funny they say and do the funniest things!! Raychel always does the silliest, most embarrassing things! Brittany, Marissa you know what I am talking about… hahaha!! Goodness, that girl!

After the kids played at Marissa’s house for a while we headed to a deli close to her house for lunch. For some reason at the deli the kids loved running back and forth it was too funny! The good thing was that there wasnt a lot of people there, and the owners didnt say anything about them running back and forth, but Im pretty sure they were glad when we left…hahaha! It was such a good time seeing the little ones play together and having a good time… all that was missing was little Rowan and Meagan… next time!!

{Raychel Bogging on Down!}

I never seen Raychel move/dance like this till this evening!! hahahaha!! She cracks me up!

{Planting Kalanchoe}

Mine and Raychel’s first time EVER planting! We planted two Kalanchoe, one yellow and the other pink, and placed them in pots outside our front door. They seem easy to maintain, so we’ll see how well I do… hahaha!

How amazing is God that he clothes the smallest flowers with colors and coverings that can never be duplicated by human hands, can you imagine how much more will He clothe and take care of us?

Do Not Worry

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?

“And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.”

Matthew 6:25-34

Proverbs 17:17
A friend loves at all times

A cheerful heart is good medicine

Proverbs 27:9
Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart,
and the pleasantness of one’s friend springs from his earnest counsel.

{Literally Off The Charts!!}

Ray is doing so good!! All his hard work is starting to pay off! He is still the top agent!! The chart below is the chart for the month of April, last chart was for the month of February, So this is a whole new chart! They start from zero again each month, and ray is literally off the charts!! I am so proud of my husband, he works so hard for his clients and to provide for us! Ray works so hard for us, because he wants us to have the best. If he could he would give us the world! Ray is just an amazing man, and I am so thankful that he is my husband. The bible says, “Then man goes out to his work, to his labor until evening.” Psalm 104:23. I know I always say how proud of him I am and how hard he works for his clients and us, but its because it is so true! He wakes up at 4:15am gets up, goes to the gym, gets back home, eats breakfast, showers, changes and then he starts calling banks for listings he has that are short sales, role plays listing presentations with other agents, then heads to his office in Pleasanton where he prospects for about 4 hours, which is… calling expireds, for sale by owners, just listed just sold properties and he follow ups with clients/ leads. After that he has lunch, then he goes door knocking/on listing presentations or shows buyers homes, etc. Then he gets home, gets comfy, eats dinner, and goes to his office here at the house, prints out paper work he needs, looks up new homes for his clients and prepares for tomorrow, and does it all over again Monday-Friday 4am-7 or sometimes 8pm. Saturday is not as busy.  Wow! talk about major dedication and discipline! The bible also says, “A man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God.. 1Chorinthians 11:7 I can definitely see that in Ray! The bible also talks about a man and a women (Adam and Eve) that we are both of one essence and therefore equals in the standing before God; there was nonetheless a clear distinction in our roles as man and women (husband and wife) the man was designed to be a father, provider, and leader. the women was designed to be a mother, comforter, nurture, and helper. And I can surly say that Ray is playing the earthly role 100% of what God created man for in a marriage. I will end with this, since I am Babbling on, with this quote I really love….

The women was made of a rib out of the side of Adam; not made out of his head to rule over him, nor out of his feet to be trampled upon by him, but out of his side to be equal with him, under his arm to be protected, and near his heart to be beloved. ~ Matthew Henry
