I love wreath making! I blame it on Eva, I think she is the one who initially brought up making wreaths. Or maybe it was Taylor?? I am still liking my current front door wreath so I making one for indoors, for over the fireplace or on the wall somewhere. I need some more decoration in my living room.

So here are my options...

and then I will leave you with some rather interesting wreaths that people have actually made...

I like to call this one, "Gather Your Junk and Throw it on a Wreath"-Wreath

 this one is just scary looking!

Which one is YOUR favorite?? Stay tuned to see which one I decide to make!

Air show...

We took Noah (along with the Scotts) on Friday to watch the air show "rehearsal" (not sure what they call it). He really likes airplanes. Anytime we go to Target we have to sit outside for a few minutes and look for planes to land/take off.

17 years ago today, my beautiful mother entered heaven. What was, undoubtedly the worst day of my family's life, was THE best day of hers. She was with her Savior, whole and happy, in no pain, no sadness, just pure joy. I love the HOPE that our family has, that while we have and will grieve over loss, we can rest in the amazing promise from our God that death is not the end. That this day brings excitement that heaven is a real place. It brings thankfulness in my heart for my salvation and the salvation of my mother.

"But I do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning those who have fallen asleep, lest you sorrow as others who have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus. For this we say to you by the word of the Lord, that we who are alive and remain until the coming of the Lord will by no means precede those who are asleep. For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first. Then we who are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And thus we shall always be with the Lord." 1 Thess 4:13-18

The Message:
"And regarding the question, friends, that has come up about what happens to those already dead and buried, we don't want you in the dark any longer. First off, you must not carry on over them like people who have nothing to look forward to, as if the grave were the last word. Since Jesus died and broke loose from the grave, God will most certainly bring back to life those who died in Jesus. And then this: We can tell you with complete confidence - we have the Master's word on it - that when the Master comes again to get us, those of us who are still alive will not get a jump on the dead and leave them behind. In actual fact, they'll be ahead of us. The Master himself will give the command. Archangel thunder! God's trumpet blast! He'll come down from heaven and the dead in Christ will rise - they'll go first. Then the rest of us who are still alive at the time will be caught up with them into the clouds to meet the Master. Oh, we'll be walking on air! And then there will be one huge family reunion with the Master!"
 ha I LOVE this translation!!

We are doing well here in the Peterson house. Some days I still can't believe we are a family of FOUR! It is a lot of work, being a mom in general is, but I love it and completely adore my children.

They have no idea how much JOY they bring to my life. Ahhh...I love, love, love them.
