snow day, photo bomb

  Photo bomb!  Sorry for the way this looks, I'm not patient enough to figure out how the pictures should be placed.  :(  And sorry so long but we have some great pics of the last few weeks of our snow days!!!!  Hope you all enjoyed your snow/time off/rest time....it was a great time for us!  


                        
These are from our snow a couple weeks ago.  He didn't like it.  However, we think due to a tooth breaking through, him just waking up from a nap and the lack of gloves, he just wasn't feeling it.  So, we didn't last long.  But it was a great few days with Kraig off work to be able to spend some extra time with us and a time for rest.



While he was teething, he insisted on being naked.  He tried to go around without a diaper too, but I wasn't going for that one.  I love this picture of him.  
 


 


Lance, Kraig and Rett built a snowman!  This time, we were prepared with gloves and more sleep.  HE LOVED THE SNOW!  Our dogs loved the snow too but they loved relaxing even more.  Then, JoJo (my sister's dog) came over and Rett and her had to watch the snow fall.  He loves JoJo.  He says, "JOJO!!!"  Then, he calls our dogs, "dog" hahahaha I guess we need to work on the names of our dogs.  :)






This is one of my favorites from these past few snow days.  If you could zoom into Rett's face.  It is pure joy.  I love him.  :)





My dad threw snow at him.  He thought it was hilarious.
He loved the snow so much better this time.  When he would walk he would just fall into it because it was so deep.  He loved to make "balls" (snowballs).  He would take a bite out of the ball and then throw it.  Then, when he got hit or hit someone else with his ball, he would just giggle.  He was so much fun to watch this time.  



 Mom took most of these pictures.  This one is great of him throwing a ball!!!!

 MY HANDSOME!

I think another favorite was to roll in the snow.




OR SIT........


AND FALL....


 HEHEHEHE :) :)




 Getting a taste before he throws it.....

For Valentine's, the Incline was giving free rides up the mountain and since Kraig was going to have a 1/2 day, we were going to have a fun, family day.  Well, the WONDERFUL snow messed that up.  Although we had a blast the last few days, we had to let Kraig go back to work today so Rett and I went to the Incline.  Well, I don't do heights well so I was a bit nervous.  I called my parents.  My mom didn't have to go back to school today so they were so gracious to help me with Rett in case I got too nervous going up the mountain.  Well, Rett did great, I did ok and we made it up the mountain and back down and had a great lunch with my parents.  All in all, a great Valentine's with my little Valentine (and parents) We just missed Kraig.  
Hope you all have had a great few snow days and a wonderful Valentine's with your honey!  Love you all and am so thankful for you all!  

Happy Valentine's Day!

I got a side hustle....

I recently became a shampoo girl...

I wasn't looking for anything different.  I started a new job over the summer at Lighthouse Foster Care which I absolutely love.  I love the flexibility of it.  I love the atmosphere.  I love learning the ins and outs of foster care and eventually adoption.  I love serving the families and helping the agency grow because I truly believe it is the best in the area.  I love it.

BUT....

As much as I love it and love serving in that capacity....THE LORD kept tugging at my heart...

"Ashleigh, you need to get out more...Ashleigh, you have a gift....Ashleigh, are you loving people the best way you know how?"

While none of these things have to do with shampoo or foster care, it does have to do with getting outside of my bubble.  I really struggle with being around people and a lot of people for that matter.  I have to do it in spurts and I have to prepare myself for it.  But THE LORD kept saying..."Ashleigh, I love them, do you?  Are you…

New additions....new life....

I'm going to get this another shot.  It is such a great outlet to let our family see pics of my kids and share our lives.  So...here goes.

Here is just a snapshot of what you can expect as I kick this back up....

I don't think I have posted since 2015....so we had another kid.  My parent's bought a family farm so we are all out living on the Holland Homestead that I have so named it.  We have chickens!  The Lord has worked so many things out so I look forward to sharing with you those answered prayers.  I got a new job which I love.  Kraig's job has shifted.  We love our youth group and church.  Ya know....God is just so good and He provides beyond our wildest dreams.

Life can still be messy and I look forward to sharing those stories with you too but here we are...just a family of 4 living life and loving Jesus through it.

I look forward to sharing our lives with you and all the bumps and bruises along the way.

some praises....

I've started this blog for days now and keep running around in circles of how or what I want to say.
Bottom line...
God is GOOD.  That's what I keep going back too.  Let's praise Him for a minute....
We have had a great news from our cousins that are battling horrible diseases!  There is still much fight to be had but God is good.
We got great news from a friend this morning....their adoption is a GO!  God is good!
We have seen God work in our kids lives and our church family in huge ways the past few weeks!  God is good!
It's so easy to be in a slump especially with this gloomy weather that we have had.  But God still works.  He works in the small things and even the big things!!!  
After the beauty of last week's snow, I found myself loving the parts that were untouched.  I loved looking at everyone's pictures and the beauty of it.  But then...it would get messed up.  People would walk on it, drive through it, and play in it.  
Sometimes...we get messed up.  …
