Laundry Day

Today is laundry day, and a school day, and then a relaxing least Mommy is off for the night as "cook." We are having pizza like every other Friday for the past two years! ha! I love it though! I get a night off!

Gwyneth has been Mommy's helper today. I started laundry and then told her we needed to gather up all the towels. She wanted to carry them all child labor laws were broken today! ha! I thought she was too cute in her nightgown and slippers with her eyes just barely showing over the mound of towels.

Stuff on my mind lately:
  • Alaska...only about four months until we transplant our family to one of the coldest regions in the world! What were we thinking??!! Just kidding. We're all excited for the adventure, it's just the technicalities I could do without. (Pack-out dates, plane tickets, will we get a house right away, etc...)
  • Photography...I sleep, eat, and breath this craft! It's borderline obsessive. I wonder if I should really pursue it as a business...who knows.
  •'s just around the corner and I CAN'T wait. I am anticipating pumpkin picking, pumpkin carving, pumpkin pies, pumpkin soup...and yummy smelling pumpkin Yankee candles! I LOVE Fall!
  • My mom...she is having a couple health issues that are uncomfortable for her. Mostly her back. She's had back problems before, but this time it feels different. They have done an MRI and she is seeing an Orthopedic surgeon next week. But the thing that concerns me the most, although her back is the most painful thing right now, is a mass they found at the bottom of her stomach. She is having a gastrointestinal endoscopy done next week as well. It's a suspicious mass, and the doctor mentioned cancer. I try not to worry too much about the unknown...and I think I'm doing o.k. with it, but every once in a while it will creep to the front of my mind, and I just have to stop and pray. If you pray, would you mind saying one for my mom?
  • David and I have been married 8 years on Sunday! 8 YEARS! We've been together 11! Gwyneth is spending the night with her cousins Saturday so we can go out and celebrate. Still haven't nailed down plans, but I know they will include dinner somewhere nice.
Hope you all have a great weekend!


  1. Khrista, thanks for posting the last couple days. I've enjoyed the pictures but I really enjoyed hearing what's on your mind. Happy Anniversary, by the way! I'm like you with your mom. I try to always remember God's sovereignty and that He is in total control but I don't always do so good. Thank you so much for asking people to pray for her. She is a very, very special woman! I hope you enjoy your pizza tonight and I will be praying that God will bless your anniversary weekend. I love you and miss you,


  2. girl, do it! I think your photography is amazing, and Alaska is such a unique place, love taking photos out there. A suggestion for the winter would be to buy a bee though. You'll be working with 6-10 hours of daylight, and I would buy the bee in Texas, i don't even know if they ship to Alaska, but if htey do it'll be much more expensive!

    Congrats on your anniversary!

  3. Hi,KIki,All is well the mass is an infection.I love you,Mom

  4. How's your mom? Any news yet?
    Did you ever hear that my Mom had cancer? Just a couple years ago. She had chemo and is now better. She still is monitored every few months. Remember that God is faithful. No matter what.
    We'll pray for her. We love you guys.

  5. ok... apparently if I had read your comments, I would have known how your mom is. I'm glad... we'll still pray for her back.
