My, oh my, how time flies when you are not paying attention. I sat down today and started thinking about some major changes and how long since each of them happened. 3 months since we moved back to Loveland. 2 months since Paityn started third grade. A week and a half since Corbin and I got married. I keep thinking it will slow down but I know it won't. Please, Lord, let me enjoy each moment because before I know it, they are gone.

Creativity is not my strongest trait

So, I have sat down I don't know how many times and started to blog about this fun thing or that fun thing only to discover I felt I wasn't doing it justice. I stopped. I would say I will do it start and then never do it. I decided that with the wonderful adventures as a family that we are in now, I needed to get my butt in gear and create memories for a lifetime...in writing.

This all brings me to my point for this post. Two Sennsational Ladies was created because Paityn and I were on our own. Just setting out to be two ladies on our own adventure. Well, we are not just two ladies any longer. We have gained this man into our lives. Although we are Two Sennsational Ladies I feel our family should be represented. So, after hours and hours of thinking and not a single idea coming to mind I am asking for help. Please send me comments or emails with any ideas you may have for what our family blog title should be. If I end up using the name you came up with then there will be a $5 gift card for the coffee place if your choice.

What's in a set of numbers????

An older post from July that I found drafted and never posted.....

Who would have thought that changing some numbers and letters after your name (your address) could have such an impact on a family.  I can not even begin to express the amazing goodness that this move has brought to us. 

Paityn and i arrived yesterday to be greeted by streamers and balloons all over the apartment.  A table with a beautiful bouquet of flowers, gifts, a new grill and a fridge full of food.  Corbin.  He was amazing and spent much of the last week preparing to welcome us to our new home.  We have been so blessed by this man.  I can't wait to spend the rest of our lives with him with us every day.

Today I rode in the car with Corbin and listened to him tease me about how old I am getting and how I need to adjust to all kinds of changes. It was said in the funnest moments, but later in the day I sat back and realized the truth to what he was saying.

Several months ago I felt God just break me. Not in a bad way, but in a way where I just sat on my couch and wept. I cried for the unknown and for the changes that had happened in the last year. That day the tears were mourning. I realized very quickly that there was not a reason to mourn but rather a reason to continue to trust God and rejoice at what he had done in our lives. So many things have come out of the last 18 months. I can't even begin to express how I feel when I think of the grace, mercy and provision of my heavenly father.

So, who knows that when I do things, I like to do them big. I don't do just a little move across a small town like Milliken. I am uprooting schools, day-cares, doctors. I am moving to a city that although home to me, feels like a scary to new place to Paityn. In the past week I began to think about even what type of amazing God moments I have already seen in my move. For those who remember I struggled and struggled with where I should move, what should I pay, where should I put Paityn. It really came down to apartment locations, two schools ....etc. Well, I made a decision about the apartment, felt such peace that I knew it had to be right. It dawned on me that the other apartment never even called me that they had a place. If I had put my coins into that purse I would be up a creek. God is absolutely in control and I know that it is worth it.

Now, the newest adventure that the Sennsational Ladies are going on is that on September 22, 2012 I will become Mrs. Corbin Schon. On July 2nd Corbin asked for Paityn's blessing and asked me to marry him. We are very excited about what God has in store for this new family.

This past weekend Paityn went on her first camping trip ever. Ok, so Corbin, two girls from the neighborhood and I were also with her. I have to say that again my girly girl impressed me with her ability to do pretty well.

Friday night was an evening that I am not sure how Mom survived. I got off work, came home, picked up dog, crate, 2 kids and filled my car to a point that I didn't know it could be filled. Drove to the camp site, unloaded everything, ate, walked around with kids to set up rules....I know we did more then that but even that makes me tired typing it all. I did discover that my amazingly organized man had a ton done for us when we got there. Tents were set up, chairs set up, food organized, fire wood and necessary things all ready for marshmallows and fun.

Now, Saturday should have been a morning of relaxing and sleeping as late as we could. Instead we were up at 3 am with three girls that decided that was the best time to become social. One of them (not Paityn) was the main instigator. Needless to say the morning was ended with several warnings that if behavior did not improve kids were going home. Even with that they were amazing.

By the time we packed up on Sunday we had sent one child home with her mom (her refusal to listen became a safety hazard), had a hot dog roast with Grandma Kari and Grandpa Ervin, Corbins mom and his nephews, enjoyed water fights and actually had a night of really good sleep.

The gang...

So, this weekend Corbin and I are taking Paityn and two neighborhood kids camping with us. One of the kids moms told me I was crazy.... such a perfect description for Jen Senn. I thought I would post a before picture so we can see if camping does us all in. More to come on Sunday.

I figure two to three boxes a night all during the week and a bunch more on the weekend....I should make it. Check with my mom and Matt Delay in 30 days... they will tell you if I was successful.
