About Me

Hi I’m Jen- I'm one lucky lady to be married to the most wonderful man, Jason. I am a mother to three beautiful children, Grant, Norah, who was born with hydrocephalus, and Mason. I love spending my time with my family. I also like to challenge myself with new things. I'm on a constant quest to become more organized, it may never happen but it's a dream. I currently work part-time as a RN in an emergency department. I love this journey of life that I am on with God by my side, knowing that all things are possible when you Believe.

Merry Christmas!

Yes we are still here...post have been hard to accomplish lately. I must say with I feel life with 3 kids has kept me busy lately. I feel that as soon as I have 2 kids set with an activity there 3 needs some extra attention. Mason had hit a new stage, one that wants to be in Mommy's arms ALL.THE.TIME.  I will post all the fun things we have been doing next week (I'm working 3 out the next 4 days).

Christmas this year has been beautiful. My goal was to teach the kids the Christmas is about celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. So today when I asked Grant whose birthday do we celebrate this weekend, he quickly answered "Jesus'" It made my day. Now if only I could find the baby Jesus for our Nativity. He went missing into Grant's room last week, I hope we can get him back into the nativity scene for his birthday. Grant is by far the most excited about Christmas. Today he was asking if we could go buy more presents to give to family and friends.

Christmas Eve, I will spend the day working in the ER. While I love being a nurse, being a staff nurse in a unit leaves you to work on holidays. While I would love to be sitting in Christmas Eve services, singing The First Noel (a favorite since my middle name is Noelle), I will be spending 12 hours caring for patients whom I believe would most likely not want to be in the ER as well.

Tonight I was blessed with a greatest gift, watching Norah take more steps closer to walking independently. She was able to raise a foot up high enough to step over a toy in her way. Tears of joy came as I thought back to last Christmas, she has come so far this year. Jason put it best - she is not normal, she's exceptional.

I hope that every one's Christmas wishes come true, and may it be happy, safe and healthy (if not you can come find me in the ER, I'll be happy to take care of you).

Our 2011 Family Christmas Verse-

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope. Romans 15:13

I would have to agree with Jason, she is exceptional. Merry Christmas to you all.
