Before we were sickies.

Before we were sickies, we spent the weekend at my moms working outside. Full-on work that involved tractors, chainsaws, a wood chipper, 4-wheelers and work gloves. Walker was happily entertained being outside riding around, playing bubbles and getting dirty.

Sunday night Walker had a mild fever and by Monday morning he had a terrible cough. Come to find out he had croup. First time, and I'll admit. That's a scary cough!

Tuesday I started feeling bad and by nighttime I was aching all over. I went to the doc and they are treating me for strep...who knows. I've been on the couch ALL day and the aches are finally subsiding. I tell ya. Being sick sure does make me thankful for being healthy.

Hoping that tomorrow is a better day. My mom is taking Walker and we r getting ready for our first Disciple Now at MCC. So excited for the students to experience this refreshing weekend!!

Coming this October to the Zakeri Family...

Joining us this October is another little Zakeri. Lots of pregnancy tests, several vials of blood and an ultrasound with a strong heartbeat have confirmed that we are expecting again. Officially I am due October 11, 2011 and couldn't be more excited.

It's like the longest I've ever had to keep a secret because I had a very early miscarriage in December and had told the world that I was pregnant which made it a little more difficult.

So Monday I reach the 10 week mark, I've really felt great from the beginning. Just dealing with a little tiredness and extra hunger! We greatly appreciate your prayers along this journey to another little Zakeri!!

Walker is excited too (actually he has no clue) but he does like his new big brother shirt!! (ultrasound pic is at 7 weeks)

Reality Check

I don't know her, I don't even know the girl that wrote this post.


But after looking through some online articles what was said of Brittany was that people knew she loved Jesus. I didn't find anything about the car she drove, the house she lived in or the money she had. All that was said of her was that she loved Jesus, she loved her job and family. What a testimony. I can't imagine the heartache that this family is experiencing but I've certainly been challenged by the life that she lived.

"let it be said of us that our hearts belonged to Jesus"

Hope her life challenges you as well.

Delicious Cucumber Snack

This little cucumber snack I learned from Aarons mom so I can't actually take credit but it's too good not to share! All you'll need is ritz crackers, a cucumber, cream cheese and lemon pepper.
1. Lay out your crackers
2. Spread a layer of cream cheese
3. Add thinly (not too thin) sliced cucumbers
4. Sprinkle with lemon pepper
5. If you're like me you'll need to make some extra because you ate too many off the plate before your guests arrived!!!

Camera strap cover and a happy boy...

Today was a good day on the homefront. I filled an order for this camera strap cover. It's going all the way to San Antonio, TX. Very fun for the spring and summer.

Walker was in a surprisingly good mood today. I think he is finally finished cutting his k-9's (those pointy teeth). That must have been such a pain. He was all smiles for the camera as you can see:).

He posed as Rambo with a silly headband made from some scrap fusible fleece the happily showed off his new sunglasses. He wore them the whole time in the car. I think he likes not having the sun in his eyes.

We finished our Technical Virgin bible study with the high school girls which seemed to turn out well!

Hope your week got off to a good start as well!!

A picture post

Here's a week in pictures.
I made a dishmat (like Darby) for my mother in law. I just love how it turned out!

I love sleeping babies!

Aaron & Walker shooting the bb gun. What a sweet father-son memory (on Aarons 30th birthday)

Walker adores our great Dane Nala! She doesn't mind him too much either!

I'm determined to have a garden this year. I'm trying to get an early start and teach Walker a little about growing plants! Planting and gardening is one of my fondest memories with my grandfather!!
