today has been a long day to say the least. some friends of mine are hurting as am i, but at the end of the day (now!!) I know my God is big and powerful and sovreign. he is mighty and gentle and his spirit moves.

again, i feel like life is moving at an incredible speed, yet it's still not May!! Alex and I are super anxious to get married, but at the same time we are enjoying every second that we are able to spend with each other. This semester has been tricky with Alex in school three nights a week...i've been babysitting at least two nights a week and that adds on the fun! but...even in all the busyness, we are coming along well with wedding plans, and i've been TRYING to catch up with friends...which isn't working so well, but i did get to see Steph and the kiddos last week so that was a plus. Maliah started T-Ball and so we were able to catch the opening day game....it was SOOO cute to see all of them out on their miniature field! Alex took lots of pics, here are a couple ::

and in the midst of everything, Easter is coming up so fast i can't even think straight! we took our traditional trip to LA to buy decor items for the tents...yes, we do Easter with hundreds of kids in tents!! Last year i had one 40x80 tent for preschool, and this year i have one 40x80, one 40x60, and one 30x30! I am super excited to see all of the kids that come, and all of the families that will come to Easter at the OC Fairgrounds. And of course, it holds a special place in my heart since I met Alex at Easter set-up last year! who would have guessed that one year later we'd be planning our wedding!!...
