Just a real quick update to let you know that Luke does have a job!!!!! God is good! As that is great news, it is also bitter sweet since 2 other guys got laid off. Please keep these two guys, especially John in your prayers as we praise Him for answering our prayers, but pray for those who now need jobs. Thanks to all of you for your concerns and prayers! God blesses us with a great Christian family! Love to all! Until next time...

Needing prayers

Good afternoon loyal blog readers or stockers!!! I come with a BIG prayer request for Luke and I. As I have mentioned before, Luke's work is going through a reorganization time. Which in other words mean laying off employees. The time has come down to Luke's level of employees. All the managers and big wigs have already been moved. So today and this weekend we ask if you could please keep us in your prayers. Luke will find out Monday if he still has a job. If he does get canned, then his last day will be on Friday the 28th. Right now, Luke really has no idea where he stands. I know God is good and no matter what, he will provide and take care of us, but at the same time, I've been in a zone lately and I'm trying really hard to have a peace of mind about it all. So if you talk to me this weekend and I'm spaced out, just hit me and get my attention! Love to you all and hope you have a great Easter weekend!! Until next time...

It's been a couple of weeks since I last posted....sorry! Our life isn't as exciting as all of our friends who have kids or expecting, so it's hard to write something interesting happening in our lives daily!! Well, I don't have pics on this computer, but I will edit later and put in some pics of my nephew Finn's 2nd birthday party we had last weekend. For his gift, we took him to see Sesame Street Live with Elmo!!! We didn't know for sure how he would react to "big creatures", but he LOVED them!! And on a side note, I really enjoyed myself as well!! We will have to keep that in mind when we have kids! It was a fun environment! His Cookie Monster birthday party was fun as well. But word to the wise...always watch your kids when you tell them to blow out the candle. Finn thought blowing meant eating! He had his whole mouth around the flame about to bite down when we all yelled and Amber grabbed him and pulled him back! Close call!
Well other than that, not much more has been going on besides work. Speaking of work...please keep Luke in your prayers. Sprint (who he works for) seems like they are in a rocky spot. The rumors we have heard aren't the best and he's stressed and nervous about it all, so please keep him in your prayers. I hope you all have a great week filled with God's blessings! Until next time...

That's right folks! The Carnagey's are going on 2 weeks of full health!! (knock on wood) This past week was our first Sunday in over a month to go to bible class and church! I felt like we needed to go forward and place membership again! It has been waaaaay too long. But it was awesome to see everyone again and not feel like you had to wear a mask and yell "Unclean!" as we were walking down the hall! This post may get a little long, so I apologize in advance, but we had a great weekend full of surprises and remodeling, so if you like picture books, there will be pictures to go along!!!

First off, before you get too bored, I have to share crazy story about my sister's 30th surprise party I threw this past weekend for her. To make a long story short (sorta)...I had talked to my bro-in-law about setting up a surprise party at Johnny Carino's (one of the only restaraunts that has a side room these days) and the choices were in Yukon for lunch or Edmond for dinner. Lunch it is!!! So, master plan everyone there at 11:45, birthday girl there at noon. So everyone shows up, noon rolls around, no sister. sister. Call answer. Sister's friend calls Ben, he does answer and she hands me the phone. Conversation: Me: "What's going on?" Ben: "I'm in Edmond, where are you?" Me: "And I'm in Yukon, oh boy!" So he's mad now, my stomach is in a knot, and the plan is we think. But thanks to my wonderful sister, when Ben got back to their table from "using the restroom and making a call" she asks, "Was that a page from work?" And he replys. "Yes....yes it was....and we have to go." (what a genius!!) Ben works in the medical field by the way and is the manager over nurses at Deaconess Hospital. So they leave and he makes this nice big story up about something that happened and now he needs to take care of it. But by the time they reach Yukon, like any other great man, he decides that they can go ahead and eat at Johnny Carino's in Yukon and then take care of business!! :) The thing is that all of us think have no clue and think the plan is busted until she walks in and is in complete shock when we yell "Surprise"!!! So moral of story....always confirm the plan that day! Here is a picture of the cake that Katie Rowten helped me make for the stated before from many others....she's a genius at cake making!!!

Now on to remodeling pictures...This past weekend, Luke and I bought a new bedspread, repainted our room, and refinished the wood work which made a HUGE difference in looks. My wonderful husband spent all day Friday (his day off) and started priming the walls and refinishing the wood. Then we spent all Saturday evening and Sunday painting. Here are a couple of before and after shots. Tell me what you think!!





Well, hope ya'll are back to being healthy and hope you have a great week! Until next time...
