mostly Brighton

this post is mostly Brighton...my life is mostly Brighton, so i guess that makes sense :)
this picture was taken in the parking lot at a Home Depot in Winnipeg. 
Dave, Brighton, and i made the trip there and back in 1 day (10 hrs. of driving) to pick up stuff for the house. Thankfully we are blessed w/ a baby that enjoys the road :)

speaking of the house...we are moved in! things are still a bit of a mess and lots of finishing touches need to be done, so as things come together i'll post more pics :) for now...
our lovely entryway w/ the completed wood box :)

baby room

cleaning tiles for the bathroom :)
we had some beautiful short-sleave weather!!! it's over now...snowing outside, but it was nice while it lasted :)

and to end this post, i just want to testify a bit to the goodness of God :)

A few weeks ago i found out that i have a bunch of cavities. Dave and i were thinking about getting insurance so i didn't schedule to have them filled. We looked into insurance, and decided we would be better off just paying out of pocket, but then i just never got around to making the appointment. Sunday night, my teeth started hurting to the point that i was in tears. I took T3, extra strength tylenol, and ibuprophene. Two hours later i still wanted to curl up in a ball and die. The pain killers were doing nothing that i could tell. Dave and i were both praying that God would ease my pain and let me sleep. i'm not exactly sure what time it was when i finally did get to sleep, but it was sometime around 2AM. Then Brighton woke up a little after 3 to eat...and when that happened, the pain was mostly gone!!! I was able to sleep the rest of the night :) I've been continuing to pain killers, and while the pain is still there a bit, it is much much more bearable. I have a dentist appointment tomorrow :)
I am so thankful that we have a God who hears our prayers and cares for us!


  1. Brighton is such a sweetheart!! You're getting such great pictures of her, too! And thank you God for that answered prayer!!

  2. It was great to see all the pics of Brighton. I will use some of these prints for Grammy and I. Baby turkeys just arrived. I didn't help because of van route. Abe, Autumn and Granddaddy are helping Dad. We do serve an awesome God. PTL
