SWEET Birthday!

Well, yesterday was my (Kim's) birthday! I am on my way to 30 although not quite yet. I turned 28! On the 27th, Joel made me my FAV cake-German Chocolate. Since we have been trying to eat healthier, I haven't had ANY sugar for awhile so I said around my birthday, I want CAKE! So, being the wonderful, spectacular husband he is, Joel made me one! And boy was it good!!!

On the night of my birthday, 2 of our good friends came over for Sushi and a little 24 watching. It was a blast. A few days ago we got to spend time with my fam who took me to La Charreada and Ivanhoes!! Are you seeing a theme for my birthday--FOOD! ? We also got to spend a little time with Joel's family too! It has been a great birthday. Thanks Johnna and Erin for coming over and for everyone who made my day special.
A bit of irony---
I was born on a Sunday (that was what yesterday was) and I was also born in a blizzard. We didn't have a blizzard yesterday-but it did snow quite a bit here. Some fun facts for ya!

Please continue to pray for Josh Buck. Go to for updates and ways to help. He was injured in Mexico in a swimming accident and is currently unable to move his lower extremeties. PRay for healing, peace, grace, and for the unborn baby that his wife Shelly is carrying. Blessings to all!

Pastor's Wife? Not ME!

I was thinking yesterday as I was ironing (something I rarely do because I am terrible at it!) and I thought about women today. There are so many different kind of women. What kind of woman am I? Am I typical? I am a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a niece, a daughter-in-law and A PASTOR'S WIFE! It's funny when the obvious hits you like a truck! Not that being a pastor's wife is a new thought to me. A lot of people at my old job knew me as that. But when I think of all that comes with that...'title', well, it makes me think...
Number 1, I consider it a true, true priviledge to be the wife of a man that GOD has called into ministry. This is not something to be taken lightly and has SO many responsibilities that people don't EVEN realize. I don't even realize all my husband does sometimes.
When I was growing up, I think I even told my mom, "IF I am ever a pastor's wife (which I didn't think I wanted to be) I am sure not going to be a TYPICAL pastor's wife!" It's odd looking back on that because I STILL think that. I am not really someone who likes to live in the boxes people have set up for certain titles. I have actually had some very funny looks and 'interesting' questions asked of me when I say my husband is a pastor. One said, "you don't LOOK like a pastor's wife." Another said "I never would have guessed that!" When they meet Joel, they usually say "you don't LOOK like a pastor". To which we both usually say "What DOES a pastor look like?"
I ask myself even now, "what does a pastor's wife look like?" Does it matter...? I am not talking looks here, I mean what does it MEAN to be a pastor's wife? I say this and ask this because number one, I want to support Joel as much as I can. I want to be an encourager, supporter, and advocate for him. However, I think the IDEA of what people have as a pastor's wife is not at all what I am. I don't play the piano (not well anyway), I don't teach sunday school, heck, some Sunday's I can't even be in church because I am working! Does that make me a below average wife. Well, I don't think so, but I have to wonder what other's think. Not that I care (I told you I am not typical). Don't get me wrong, I want to be supporting to people of the church as well, but I am not there to PLEASE them. I am there to worship Jesus! WOW. I feel I have tons of thoughts brewing and not enough room to say them.
Again, don't get me wrong. I don't necessarily feel presssure or anything from people in our church. It is just something I have been thinking about...
What's YOUR opinion?

A new addition to our friendship

I know what you may be thinking-NO there is not a new addition for Joel and I. Don't worry, I haven't been keeping a secret for 9 months from EVERYONE!
Over New Year's we got to visit some of our friends and THEIR new addition. Eily was born to our friends Jeremy and Michelle Hawk in November and we finally got down to see them and her.
We got to go to La Charreada and hang out and then went back to their place for coffee and more hang out time.
Isn't Eily SO cute!?
You can check out the Hawk's more by clicking on their contact stuff to the right here >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
So, congratulations to Jeremy and Michelle!

Joel made a new friend
The Hawk Family! Michelle doesn't even look like she just had a baby!

Mo' fun with the fam!

On New Year's Day, Joel and I drove to Hartford City (IN) to see my (Kim's) side of the family and celebrate Christmas. Mom made a great homemade dinner that afternoon and we had a great time all of us just hangin out. We missed my sister-in-law Missy. She had to work. If she had been there though, she totally wouldn't have let me take a picture like this one-at least not with her in it. She hates her picture taken.
Anyway, we missed her but we had fun too. I can't believe that my nephew is taller than I am! I remember holding him the day he was born (uh oh, I am sounding old!)
Hope you all had a wonderful Holiday season with your family! I know we did!

My mama and nephew Cody-he's gettin so grown up! It make me feel old!
