Might be fun

Okay, so I saw this on a cousin of a cousins (don't ask) blog and decided to join in. Here is what you do...1. As a comment on my blog, leave a memory that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you know me a little or a lot, anything you remember! If we're only blogging friends, write about a post that is the most memorable for you.2. Next, if you feel so inclined, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. If you leave a memory about me, I'll be sure to write one about you...!

Condo or Baby?

We finally closed on the sale of our condo. It's actually been a couple weeks but we've had other stuff going on.

This is the view that could be seen from all the rooms and the patio. It's beautiful. The mountains look like a painting. It's nice to just take some time to notice them and all of the beautiful splendor the Lord has given us.

We gave up the home we love so that we can adopt. The view from our home was beautiful but I don't think it will compare to the look in our birth mom's eyes when we meet; and the love that will be present when she holds that baby for the first time. We can't wait for the Lord to send us our angels. By angels I mean our baby, AND our birth mom. It will be our own glimpse into heaven.

Please Help!!!

To all of our friends and family,
Sterling and I have a nephew that is very sick. They live in Texas so we have only met him once but we still love him so very much. He was born with 1 tiny kidney (I don't think it was ever working) and the other wasn't doing well either. The poor little guy was born in March and as of today, Sept 15th, will have had at least three major surgeries. He has a feeding tube that sticks out of his belly and has recently had to have surgery to put a tube and stuff (great medical terminology I know) to put him on dialysis. Yesterday (Sept 14th) they were forced to do dialysis before the Dr.'s felt comfortable and it leaked all over so now they have to go in and "install" a differend kind of dialysis. (hema-something) His name is Nikolas and I know that the Lord has sent him to my brother and sister-in-law because they would be able to take care of him. I am just asking that all of you might be able to remember him in your prayers. Any prayers that can be offered would be fabulous. Here are some pictures...

This is Nikolas a few months ago while they were visiting us in Utah

This is Nikolas after his surgery to put in the first dialysis port.

Nikolas is a very special spirit and we are hoping and praying that the Lord will bless all of us and him to help him get healthy so that he can stay with us. All of your prayers are appreciated.
If you would like to see more about Nikolas and his family here is a link to their blog...

Awww... How Cute!!!

Ok, so, I had a couple of hamster's from the Vet Tech department at my work and to make a very long and drawn out story much shorter (and look in more favor to me) Sterling gave them away and I was VERY upset. So... we got another one. His name is Milton and he's pretty cute. I know I know.. you're all thinking... is she really putting a blog up about her new hamster? YES DANGIT! I AM! Now do you see why we need to adopt a baby so badly? Anyway, right after we got Milton we went to my parents house for dinner on Sunday. I knew that my neice and nephew, Kiana and Bryson, would be there. So, we brought Milton for them to play with. They LOVED him. they kept taking turns holding him and laughing while his little feet would tickle their arms when he ran up and down them. Then, one of them (I forget who) saw the back end of him and said "I can see his bum!!" Ha Ha Ha hilarious. For those of you who don't know... hamster carry their male genitelia (sp?) on their back end and you can see it all the time. It was just too cute for words. I just said "Yup! you SURE can!"

This is out little Milton

This is Charlie. He came to us because his owner was trying to find him a home and we decided to take him

This is the both of them. Their not real great friends... they don't cuddle or anything like my other two did. The other two were brothers though.

They like to push each other off of the wheel. Charlie is significantly bigger (fatter) than Milton so he pushes him around a lot. Milton runs really fast on the wheel where as Charlie more waddles along. However, It seems that Charling has taken quite a "liking" to Milton at times. Sterling says that Charlie rapes and pillages. Poor Milton.

Anywho... these are our new pets.

I'll be putting some much more interesting posts up very soon. So... stay tuned!
