Trying out my clothes for Next week - Sunday 6th September will be my blessing day!! On Fathers Day.. how fitting.. I will be Daddy's gift :)

My Three White Dresses

My mom bought me a white dress,
Not red or pink or blue.
She said it was a special dress
Like very other few.
There has been just one before,
A dress now put away,
That I wore some time ago
Upon my blessing day.
As a little baby clothed
In my first white dress,
My dad held me in his arms,
There to name and bless.So pure and clean was I just then,
With time to grow and learn
About the Father’s plan for me.
My glory I must earn.

Now I’ve reached the age to judge
The wrong road from the right,
And I am here to be baptized
In this dress of white.
So once again I’m free from sin.
The path is clear to me.
I’ll grasp the rod and hold on tight,
I vow with certainty.
Just as mud would stain my dress,
Sin would stain my soul.
The key is to repent or bleach,
For whiteness is my goal.

And if I try my very best,
Then richly blessed I’ll be,
Wearing inside God’s holy house
White dress number three.
So today I make this pledge:
I’ll strive to choose the right,
Through this sacred baptism ordinance
In my second dress of white.
(Linda Gay Perry Nelson, 1993)

From Blah to Blessings

So I praise anyone out there who has a bunch of children.. its hard work.. especially in the early weeks of trying to get the baby into a routine and nut out feeding issues etc, whilst trying not to neglect the other children (cause OH they remind you about their neglect!)

So while I was having an emotional breakdown the last two days Blessings have come in bounteous ways!!

The MR was at meetings until late last night and had to work a double shift today (he hasnt be able to have any time off with this baby), we had a house inspection due (OH MY!)My mother is attending to funerals and the like, I have a urinary tract infection and needed to go to the doctor (I have never had one before, and Oh ladies who have, I feel for you - IT IS NOT NICE!)and our little miss G got poop on all on my Bed!! I am sure there were other things.. this list is not long enough for how overwhelmed I felt this morning.. probably naughty kids,every room a mess and feeling like I have no friends etc.

To say that I started the day crying is an understatement!! But God is merciful - YES He is!

The MR comforted me and asked if I was going to be ok.

My mum rang and I complained on the phone to her for an hour while I power cleaned from 7-8:30am (I think I clean better while I am on the phone!!)

I ignored the other children (i will try this more often - just tune it all out!!)

Miss K burped and held Miss N for me the whole time

A friend dropped by to give me homemade pumpkin bread, strawberries,and socks for Miss N (dont know where all the baby socks are but she has none) saw my condition and offered to take Miss G for the day while I go to the doctor (when I saw her car pull up I actually thought that the MR may have rung her to come over as he was questioning my emotional status - I was embarrassed as she is the bishops wife and has 3 small kids of her own - but turned out she was just randomly dropping by :)

The house inspection lady came and I was able to scare her off in 2 mins.. I was changing the babies poopy nappy, mentioning I was just headed off to the doctor and she was like, "oh I can see your busy, I won't keep you" - while I tried to distract her from the messy house with getting her to look at my cute baby !! Oh excuse the house, haven't done much, since I have a 3 WEEK OLD BABY!! Worked a treat and off she ran, happy with how we are keeping the house :)

Got my meds from the doctor!!

All my worries said and gone by 11:30am!!

I know the Lord sees our trials. Many times I have felt alone and it seemed like there was no help. But I know the Lord does help us, and sends us miracles from time to time.

Today felt like a miracle!!

And I shall sit here in peace and quiet alone counting my blessings - because 3 of them will be back home soon making noise.

Party for One

Is there any food that is safe to eat when pregnant? Look at this list for all the no no's - is there any food left??

By your fourth I think you relax a bit - I did cut out the seafood, salami type meats and Soft cheeses, such as brie, camembert, ricotta but still ate salads, chicken and deli/Salad bar stuff.

So for nine months no Camembert :(
Well I changed that today... YUM!!

Lucky I bought a whole wheel of the stuff - of course I had to share - The girls were very happy with afternoon tea today!!

I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and the earth. And it shall come to pass, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the bow shall be seen in the cloud: and I will look upon it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is upon the earth. ~ Genesis 9:13-16

we had this gorgeous rainbow over our house this week. On closer inspection it was acutally a double rainbow.... we felt lucky!

Nataliya Mary Comber

HA! had you all... of course it was a last minute entry into the name race. I broke so many of my naming rules!! That's what happens when the MR has to be involved!

WE have had Talia on a baby name list since our first daughter. But we have a few friends who named their children that, so off the list it went. It was on there because it means 'dew from heaven' something that has sentimental reasons to me from something THE MR said to me when we were first married... (ANYWAYS.. moving on)

I usually choose names that have beautiful meanings. Now don't get me wrong - it would be sacreligious to say that this name doesnt have a beautiful meaning...

BUT Nataliya means "Birthday" - Christ's Birthday to be precise (All good if you are born around Christmas) and Mary means "Sea of Bitterness" (OH OH - but I shall go with if it is good enough for the Mother of Christ, its a nice name - but it was chosen as all the girls have family history names, not because of religion) and we usually steer clear of Mormon/churchy names!!!

Oh and I got the spelling off some movie credits - The MR suggested he like the name Natalia and we were watching a movie and one of the actors real names was Natalya - I said I like - so if you need Baby name inspiration watch movie credits :)

so now the girl has the most religious name in the world!! I had to figure out reasons why.. Important to the crazy brain that is mine :)


This precious one was a surprise (not expected, doesn't mean not wanted, but a surprise none the less :) So at first all those selfish feelings of 'I dont want to be sick, can we?, oh my, etc etc surfaced.

A month later I had the scariest week of my life as I suffered miscarriage symptoms. And felt immediately GUILTY!! for the previous thoughts! I spent Christmas deep in thought and in love with this unborn baby, wishing it to live. I also had the ultrasound that gave us the good news that she was indeed a tough survivor and a miracle on my birthday (just after Christmas) (why I thought having that type on potential bad news delivered on my birthday would be a good idea???? Lucky it turned out to be a wonderful birthday present)

ANYWAY - this is my reasoning to why I like her name AND it's Meaning :)

She's our Christmas Miracle :)

Strawberry Fields forever..

We celebrated my nephew's 3rd birthday at Strawberry Fields with one of their Party plans. A bit of a drive for us, but if I lived up that way, I would definately consider it for the girls. They loved it. (Though the teenage party host could have been more interested and engaging :)

Party games, Cake, Strawberries, Picking with Grandad, Grandma Kisses, Spoilt by Aunts and Uncles, Warm sun.. what more could you want?
