Hank Happenings

Hello lovely blog readers,

It has been some busy days in the Hallbeck house.  We have been searching for a doggy for a few months now. Many wives, who have husbands that are military or just travel for their work have told me a big help is having a dog.  We have been searching, hard to find a dog that will stay small enough for our rental and not too spendy. Little dogs seem to be the most expensive.  So, when we saw the post about Hank and his brothers and sisters we jumped on it.  We went and met the little guy and had to wait 10 more days to get to bring him home. Now he is in our lives the for the rest of his little life. It is exciting. :)

 He's a great little dude. Still getting the bed time thing down! Gotta remember he is still so young almost 2 months. He only got up once in the night last night tho. Better then 4 from the 2 nights before! ;)  He is passed out on my lap, coffee on the table, the one and only Frank on Pandora, a day off from work, Dad/Hubby at work.

Before the pup fell asleep he took some pics with mom for your enjoyment! And I got to mess around with all the new updates my Picasa 3 has now!

hehe to my surprise he was winking in this shot 

mom I want to go to sleep, stop taking pics for the blog
~ well hello ~

about to crash

and I'm out

May you all be encouraged! I found myself just thinking how much God has blessed Dan and I; after the months apart, he has given abundantly 3 months together with only a few times in the field for Dan. Every good and perfect gift is from above! Thank you Jesus.  I like to remind my self to not take these days for granted. Like that bumper sticker I told you about a while ago, "live like he's deploying tomorrow". What is something in your day today that is a gift from above? lets have thankful hearts today! If there is something good in your day, something perfect for you in your day, something that goes well, thank the Lord, for every good and perfect gift is from above.  Also, one more point. I heard in church the other week that perfect means perfect for you, God knows you, he knows what we need. Example from marriage class, I'm not a perfect wife but I'm the perfect wife for Dan, and Dan's not a perfect husband but he is a perfect husband for me. God knew that! That is why we were blessed with each other. Some times I really think my husband is perfect! A gift from God.  So that is how I think of that word perfect in that verse. 

Talk you you all later, 

Erika and sleeping Hank 
Hope you all have a happy weekend!
