Hey guys! I changed my playlist at the bottom. You can now start it only if you want to. You have to push on the play button in the middle, I can only see half of it on our laptop I don't know if it is like that for everyone or not. I would also love your input if you like the songs I chose or if you have any suggestions! Love ya!

Count your Blessings

Here is my list of blessings that doesn't nearly tip the iceberg of fabulous blessings in my life prompted by Valerie Jones' suggestion to count our blessings.
*Jesus loves me
*Joshua and Naomi Kate love me
*wonderful friends and family that have been praying for me
*spiritual books-like the one our sunday school class has been reading The Life You've Always Wanted
*a healthy body, hubby, and daughter (her spider bite is much better by the way)
*a profession-however difficult, it keeps me serving and that is good for me
*3 moms, 2 dads, 1 grandma, 2 grandpas, 3 brothers, 3 sisters, 1 neice, 1 nephew, 7 aunts, 6 uncles, ???cousins
*the BIBLE
*Sillly songs!!
and much, much MORE
Thank you so much for all the prayers! I am feeling wonderful now. I had a good friend write down a verse for me and I kept it in my pocket all day and the next and then I was better. I just needed reminding why I'm here and my job is for Jesus! Thanks again to everyone. Here is my newest special verse:
John 14:27 (New International Version)
27Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Also big thanks to Grandmom for watching NK all week and taking such excellent care of all 3 of us!

Here are some new faces NK likes to make.

Joshua has done a great job being a stay at home daddy these past 2 weeks! He cooked, cleaned, and changed diapers! He is so great! Sadly he has to go back to work next week and mamma has to fend for herself. Grandmom is coming next week though. Yeah! Then she will start day school and to Kristy's house. Thank you for your continued prayers during this transition time for her. Here are some pics of her when daddy took her to the park.

I thank all of you very much for the prayers. I truly believe they have helped me through some of this depression I am going through. I am still not a 100 percent. I was crying today about not seeing Naomi Kate all day yesterday to a co-worker. We are also having problems at school with only being able to have recess 2 times a week!! We just got a note about it today. So, pray for that as well.
Back to the reason all of you come to this blog anyway right. Naomi Kate had fun with the kittens at Uncle Dan's and Aunt Corinne's. Most of the time she was more interested in playing with the kitties toys than the kitties.
We also went to Grandmom and Granddad's last weekend to swim.

18 month pictures

We took Naomi Kate to Portrait Innovations for her 18 month pictures. It was a bit long but that was because we brought 3 outfits. We know better next time. We got to leave with the photos! It is very innovative- wink. Here a few of the best. There were 162-we got the cd for free with the pics we bought.

I have been working this week as most of you know. I really need your prayers right now. I feel I may be coming into a depression or something. I am seriously considering going into another profession. I am starting to really hate my job and I don't like that feeling. Just pray for me.
This video is from last week when we went swimming for a while. She really has a way with words.

More 80's Bash

Some people cough Josh don't like the slide show so here are just a few pics from the bash.

Totally 80's Bash!

We had a great time at the totally 80's Bash. Happy birthday to the mommy-to-be Mags. She had a great idea and lots of friends and family that came. We had to leave before the lip syncing contest but, I'm sure it was great! Here is a slide show of some of the great costumes. It was great to see everyone from BG!

Josh and I have mused about this for a long time. Naomi Kate will find a phone and pick it up and instead of hello she says "ho" it is very cute. She actually has the old cover for Josh's IPhone in her hand on this occasion.

The Grissom "Happy Birthday ?Song?"

This has been a ritual for a very long time in the Grissom household. It is very funny to watch but even funnier in person, if you ever get the opportunity to come to one of our birthday parties get ready. Please enjoy the music. Happy birthday Grandmom!

My new dolly

Last week, I was very busy. So today I have several treats for you to enjoy. First, we bought (or Grandmom did) a new doll! I think mommy and daddy were a bit more excited about it than she was. The next day she was giving her kisses and seems to like her. Her name is Sara and she has 2 outfits! Naomi Kate has already lost her bow because she kept taking it off and trying to put it in her hair instead of Sara's hair.
