100th Post

I cannot believe that this is my 100th post! I really LOVE blogging because it reminds me of major and minor events in our everyday lives. Believe me I know that I don't have a profound voice or life altering advice but this blog gives me a chance to simply capture"life at the wood's". God has blessed me with these beautiful children and I really do count it a privilege to stay home and raise them. Some days it is really hard to be thankful when the laundry is piled up or I have zero idea what's for dinner, or why Ally has been crying ALL DAY LONG, or that Ryan seems to have some obsessive compulsions (weird I know, he's so like his dad-kidding-:-)). I try to be authentic with my struggles as a wife, parent and friend but, I also LOVE to rejoice in the many victories from the Lord.

Today was just a normal day. We went to the mall for a while after preschool so the kids could run around. They were like wild monkeys but fortunately the mall was not very crowded so I just let them run free. I'm not so sure that we'll be back in the GAP for a while (am I right Kylie?)but, other than that it was a pretty easy trip. Here's my failed attempt to get some pictures of both kids looking at the camera and smiling. Oh well, like I said I try to be authentic:-). At least we got out of the house and they had fun.

Ryan's got some moves, huh?! Thanks for keeping up with our little family. I just love to read your sweet comments and feel really blessed to have moms that are quick to encourage and pray for our family. That means more to me than you will probably ever know. XOXOXO

You are the second person to post photos of a play area at the Richland Mall? Since when has that been there? Always love your posts, as well as your sweet words of encouragement as well. Keep it up - for those of us that also said we would "never blog"...

When I was checking out at the Gap, the lady asked me if "anyone got hurt while the boys were running around." oops. :) I should have gone straight to the play area instead of trying to complete my list... by the time we left, Hudson was in trouble and had lost play area privileges and I was tired and frustrated! That's what a I get for shopping with a 3 year old boy right?! It was good to see you for a bit and I always love your posts!!

It will be a real goal of mine to hang out this summer and get our kids playing together. I think my pair would play together really well with your pair! ha! Haddie cries and Walker has obsessive compulsions! HA HA!!! Seriously, that is a must-do for us. We're getting back into church, too. I promise!!!

I love your blog and your precious family!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy 100!!!
