I'm a soon-to-be Auntie!

As you can see my sis-in-law Megan is ready to bring my neice, Albany Marie into this world....I'm so excited! She is due on September 2nd....of course, I hope she arrives sooner.

Kansas City Here We Come!

Last weekend Rusty and I headed out to Kansas City to meet up with my sister Heather, who was visiting her boyfriend Tyler Domerese (Thanks to none other than ME!..I like to play matchmaker). We stayed at the Domerese's BEAUTIFUL home out in the country. on the way there, we drove through Olathe and stopped at one of our all time favorite places..Chipotle. YUM! We finally made it and I was so glad to see my's been awhile, 9 months...! I had the Ummm... WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE OF CRAWFISH at a Cajun restaurant called Jazz. The waitress put the plate/bowl in front of us and I just freaked out. I've never seen anything like it. Their eyes were black and beady, staring at me... those long antennas sticking out....Rusty noticed this behavior out of me and never ceased to torture me with them (this resulted in a few screams, which definitely drew attention to our table) and tried to sneak some home with us to torment me. We went to the Country Club Plaza (which happens to be my favorite place) to eat and shop then we spent some time at Union Station where we saw a really cool IMAX. Heather and I had a fun time wtih Tyler's horses, Sadi and Dakota.

Let it rain...........

This weekend it rained and rained....and.....RAINED. There was also tons of thunder and lightening around here, which is scary here....I'm definitely not used to it yet! Saturday I made chocolate chip cookies and Rusty and I invited the young people over to hang out while it stormed outside. We all had a fun we always do! Unfortunately, I forgot to get pictures of it all......
While the rain comes down outside, the floodgates of heaven are open in the church as well. Within the past month, four young people have recieved the gift of the Holy Ghost. It seemed like every service someone got the Holyghost......Two of them got baptized Sunday morning and Bible studies are being taught. We are excited and ready to work harder to get more here and let God fill them with the Holyghost.

Sunday was an awesome day. One of our sunday school kids who has been coming for awhile was very close to receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost! Everyone is excited and very thankful that the many seeds we have planted and watered so long are blossoming and growing. Rusty and I also had the opportunity to start having services at one of our town's main assissted living centers. We rounded up a good group from church to go with us to help and ended up having a great service. The elderly people really enjoyed it and are looking forward to next Sunday's service. Later that night, our evening service was great and God really moved..... like He always does!

I love Saturdays....

This Saturday has been busy so far...but that is life in Independence, BUSY....! At 11:00 this morning I met Rachel (who, by the way is 6 months pregnant) at the church to help her make her famous spaghetti sauce for our spaghetti dinner after church tomorrow while Rusty helped frame his brother Marty's new house he's building. Rusty and I are now going to head over to our friend's (David and Stacie) new house to help them move.....after that we have a birthday party to go to at the church pavillion at 5..........After the party we will check on the Sunday school kids to see if they are coming tomorrow.................WOW! I feel like I never stop sometimes! But, like everyone always says..............we are young and able to go, go,go,go and GO.

My little vacation from work is going great... I'm enjoying every second of it! Thursday I was able to babysit little Gracelyn, she is 3 months old and soo cute, while her mom ran some errands.
Later on, I had Marty and Megan, my brother and sister-in-law over for chicken fajitas and rice.
This morning (EAARRRRLY!), my friend/cousin-in-law Rachel talked me into going with her to a few garage sales and I found a small book case, magazine rack, coffee table, and a big square picture frame to put around my clock for a good price and now all I have to do is paint them all glossy black to match my living room. She has been trying to get me to go (along with others....)for weeks now and I'm glad I finally went because I lucked out!
She's so cute!
