Catching Up!

Wow were we behind in posting! My computer dying a slow and painful death was a big part of it. Below is a brief snapshot into our lives of late. Things have been hectic and fast-paced as always. Beginning tomorrow we are taking a long weekend trip (just the two of us) to South Beach. We are beyond thrilled, we really need this time to relax our bodies and rejuvenate our souls.

Day at the Beach

Enjoying Frozen Gold, a NSB tradition!

Day At The Zoo

We finally took the plunge and joined the zoo last weekend! Our zoo isn't the greatest for older kids, but it has everything a 2 1/2 year old could want. E would look at each animal for maybe 2 seconds, then say "I want to see more!" The exception was the elephants, she spent quite awhile with them. It was a great day and we're looking forward to many more zoo adventures to come! 

Right in Our Own Backyard

Take a Walk in My Shoes

Reason #143 why I love having a girl.

Easter Eggs

This is her, "I'm having a really good time,
and I'm really serious about it" face. 

E thouroughly enjoyed her first egg dying experience. 
Mama and Daddy enjoyed watching her!

Show Us Your Silly Face

Ella began making a silly face to herself in the mirror when washing her hands. We've noticed the face appearing in other instances as well. :). (third post by Dad)

We're Six!

Six years! From here on every year just sounds like a long time- 7,8,9...! What a six years it has been. We have been blessed beyond measure, and I can't wait to see what the next 6 years will hold. This last year has been challenging in many ways, but the Lord continues to bring us closer- both to each other and to Him. May we never doubt His wonderful plan for our lives. I love you JAC!

Lost and Found

This crazy boy decided to run away a few nights ago. He's never even thought about such a thing before. Thankfully J found him about an hour after he flew the coop. Mama was very distraught, and so thankful he's home, safe and sound. We love you Charlie boy!!
