Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

Date Day!

So I've been inspired by my MOL, Mompom, and various blogs by stay at home moms to start my own blog about my family. I love reading my mompom's blog so that I can keep up with all my family's happenings in Denver, and now I want them to be able to keep up with our happenings in Fort Collins. I love all the craft and recipe ideas I get from various blogs by stay at home moms. I strive to one day be that creative and inventive with my kids and husband. I tried to keep a blog where I only posted about things I made, but I don't have as much time to make things these days, so this is my second blog attempt...I hope it works!

Today, I got to fulfill one of my dreams since having a daughter. Cadence and I went on a mother/daughter date! When we lived in Lakewood I always thought it would be fun to go on a date with her in Morrison on the main street to get a slice of pizza and a fun drink at a coffee shop. Well, she's finally old enough to appreciate a day out with me, but now we live in Fort Collins. So, instead of pizza on Main street, we went to lunch at McAlister's Deli, where Cadence ate more chips than sandwich.:) Next, off to get our nails done at the local beauty school. Cadence picked the vibrant and exciting color of white! We followed that up with an ice cream chaser at Cold Stone (chocolate with gummy bears...a classic flavor). We were only out for a couple of hours, because nursing duty calls every 3 hours, but Cadence was wiped out from all the fun and fell asleep on the way home. All in all, it was a good first date and I see a second in our future!


  1. Beautiful! Adorable! Wonderful! Fantastic! Praise the Lord! You are the best Mama bear of all time! xoxo brad

  2. I like this blog! The kids looks so happy and Granny loves them and finds them brilliant.

  3. Oh that Finners picture needs to be blown up and framed. So precious.
    I love that you went on a girl date! :) What a fabulous idea! Did she get her hair cut?
    Excited to keep up with the Maston clan this way! <3

  4. She did get her hair cut, at cool cuts. It was getting a little too scraggley in the back. She looks much sweeter and older with her new do.
