About Me

My photo
Hello, My name is Ester. I absolutley adore Jesus! He is the center of my life. I am nothing without him. He has allowed a dream of mine to come true. I've always wanted a little boutique. I've been praying for the right time, the time is now! I am the mother of 3. I love my children, they keep life so exciting. I homeschool and I have one in traditional school. I love to craft, it could be a full time job. I love it that much. I like sewing, baking, bow- making, and all things family! I am married to my highschool sweetheart, you can read about that on my other blog. www.loveinmyhouse.blogspot.com.

Baby Goodness

I really want to jump into the world of boutique children's clothes. I dressed my little ones in them and I just think they are so cute. So when I have extra time I will invest in my little dream. Here's my first attempt! I also used my Christmas money to put an embroidery machine in the lay-a-way! I am so excited!!! 

Birthday Party fun!!

There is no secret, this girl loves a good party!  I secretly look for occasions to throw a get together! Well, in my mission to minister to the Mr. I decided to throw him a birthday party. He recently told me that he never had a birthday party growing up!! What?? How can that be?? How could I not know that? Well the kids helped me plan a modest affair for him. He was so grateful! He really liked all the attention. He never knew how great it felt having friends over to celebrate life! I prayed that this would be a blessing. I prayed the impact would reach beyond my humanly eyes. I'm expecting fruit that I know only God can produce!
Here are my friends and I posing in a photo booth created by my crafty daughter. Props and all!
Birthday boy and sister crafty!!
Our hot dog bar! Which was a fun and easy food idea!
I wish I took better pics but I was so busy chatting I forgot!

Breath of fresh air

You may know that I homeschool my oldest daughter. She's quite an amazing kid ( I know every parent thinks that)! Yesterday we watched a video thats been floating around of a 13 year old homeschool boy. This video truly inspired us to adjust our homeschooling method. So this little lady
Will be learning and interning at all the places she has special interest. I'm amazed that there are so many people willing to share their skill with my sweet girl!

Trust is just one if those words that always causes me to pause. Like I said in a previous post, I was lot scared that it was going to be my word for the year.  I know that God will provide many opportunities to TRUST him this year, SCARY!!! He likes to put us to the test (mainly because he will  get the glory) when we trust him.  I mean it really sounds easy, trust in God who has already declared your victory. Who would think twice with a promise like that? Me. 
Don't get me wrong, I trust God (with some things), I also truly believe he can do anything He chooses to do, I get that nothing is to hard for him.  I don't doubt that he can do his part.  I do question my ability to take the first blind step. Yikes!! I am a planner, I like to know, I want to be in the loop. Ok, ok.... This might fall under the CONTROL spectrum. I do like to have a little control.  Funny how I think I'm in control when this is ALL His plan. Lord, let your will be done in my life.  I want to be totally surrendered to my daddy God.  I understand that totally surrendering starts with trusting God in every area of my life. (Even my wildest dreams)

Happy New Year!

I'm so excited about this year and all that it may bring! 
I have a lot friends that choose a word to focus on all year as a family. I think that's a great idea and I'm praying over several words. I even asked the kiddos to pray about our family word. There are so many  words that would be good! But I'll wait on God!
I don't really make resolutions but we always survey our year and talk about what went well and improvements we need to make personally and as a family.

All I can say is that I'm expecting a great year , I can't wait to see what God has up his sleeve!
