OK, this past fall me and Brendan went on the church marriage retreat - which was awesome! During the retreat we were challenged to do devotions and pray together daily. So we got an accountability partner and we started a comittment not to miss a night. Here lately I have noticed that our nightly praying together has gotten REALLY long. It seems like everybody we know has a real need, a prayer request that desperately needs to be answered. So many of those we know have a major health concern and so many of those we love need Christ in their lives. Today, however, two special needs have come up that we ask your prayers for. My pop had to have bypass surgery on his leg today and Brendan's dad is having a heart cath tomorrow. We are just praying that God places a sheild of protection around them and a really quick recovery. Thanks for your prayers.

Busy Week

Just thought I would post a few pics and let everybody peek into our past week. Sunday Jack tried on my high heels and I thought every respectable boy needs a picture of that! Monday we all went to music group ( Brendan included ). I love taking him to this group so that he can be with his friends ( and me with mine) but most importantly to instill in him a heart of worship! Tuesday night I left the boys at home and had a night out with the girls. The six of us enjoyed some yummy food at the olive garden and sat around for a while just chating - I have an awesome group of friends! Wednesday, Jason and Melissa came over for our weekly American Idol party. Thanks to Jason and his great idea( and help ) we were able to totally remodel our fireplace with stone.. I'll post pics later. The rest of the week we finished the fireplace project. Today we had my whole family over for a Birthday Party for my Me Me! Whew... its been a busy week!

A new Era

Brendan gotti
As most of you know, Brendan has changed jobs. He left the Sheriffs office 3 weeks ago to join the ABC Board. Unfortunatley the new job requires him to be gone 5 weeks, and that time is quickly approaching. He will be leaving next Thursday. Suprisingly, so far I am handling this very well - granted he hasn't left yet and he has been home the last few weeks. I know that this job is going to give him more safety and stability. Most of all it will allow him to go to church every Sunday - which is the most important thing for him! Please pray for us that this time goes quickly and a sheild of protection around him.

Jack's new favorite food - spaghetti!

As if I didn't have enough to do..

Well after much peer pressure I have decided to start a blog!! I must say that I do love the opportunity to keep everybody updated on what is going on in our life... and as most of you know - we do have a lot going on! So I promise that I am really going to work at this and keep it new... but only time will tell! Thanks for dropping in and checking on us. We love you all! Courtney
