Yes, it's true. I'm posting today.

After a brief moment of guilt, I've decided to share some photos of the kids. These were taken back in October but I love them. I'll get some more soon. This time my guilt will keep me accountable!

Blog? What blog?

Well, it looks like mother's day is the last time that we have updated our blog. Looks like the blog got crowded out in the midst of our summer activities! I won't say much here except to give a brief update on things.

Sadie had her first birthday in June...a butterfly party. Abram turned 3 in September. We've taken vacations to the beach and to a family retreat at Lake Forest Ranch. Shea and I went to New Orleans for a weekend...WITHOUT THE KIDS! It was the first time we had both been away from Sadie overnight, and we had a wonderful weekend together. Shea and I also had a first together by completing a triathlon in June...a short one but still a triathlon.

Sadie started walking this summer, although she's back to crawling for the time being as she had a "toddler fracture" after a fall in September. Her doctor says it will be fine by the 1st week of October. Abram is old enough now to attend Sunday school (instead of the church nursery), as well as our church's Wednesday night kids program (Awana), and finally a 2-day-a-week mother's morning out program.

Shea and I have both been challenged in our relationships with each other and with those around us. There have been numerous "teaching moments" for each of us, and we are grateful for God's patience and goodness in our lives.

I'll close with a couple of pictures of Abram and Sadie from our neighborhood 4th of July parade. Here's to a more "connected" fall blogging season!

Mother's Day

A few reasons why I am thankful today...

(I made this dress!)

(See below for dirt explanation)

(Nothing beats a giant backyard puddle!)

What beautiful gifts my children are to me. The Lord is so good and has blessed me beyond anything I could have ever thought. What a full life I have with my love Daniel
and our two little ones. Mom loves you guys!

Day at the Farm

Daniel's employer provided a day at the farm yesterday. We had a great time!
Abram loved the big moon walk and even fished a little.
He also enjoyed seeing all the horses and riding Billy the pony.

We had a great day! Thanks BKD!

Easter Pictures

We had a great Easter weekend at our home this year. We have an amazing God who in His sovereignty, loved us so much that he sacrificed His own SON...just so that we can be made blameless. Jesus's death on the cross and power over death fully satisfied God-we are free!

Enjoy our pictures!
Some of our beautiful spring flowers

The glare must have been a little much for Sadie!

A Noteworthy First

We've had a lot of "firsts" lately with Miss Sadie. She is crawling, waving bye-bye, pulling up to standing on EVERYTHING, even cruising along tables, toys, and her brother. She's eating all kinds of things...and cries everytime a meal is over. My life is busy and I don't get to post about all her firsts, but I had to show you all these pictures of Sadie's first pigtails!
I love this little girl and it is very fun to do silly things like this!

Our Little Eight-Month Old


We had fun in the snow on Friday. We had about 3-4 inches of great, fluffy snow. (This is a big deal in Jackson, MS!)

Dad braved the cold to snap the snowy picture of our yard while we kept nice and cozy at the breakfast table. Thanks Dad!

Please notice Daniel's fence! The only thing left is to build and hang this large gate. Then Jackson can come to his new home!

Well, no excuse really

It's been a long time since I've shared pictures. Enjoy these randoms!

Christmas parties night

Aren't they so cute! "Sistaaaas!!!!" (as Amanda says)

Abram is shaving now...not really

And my precious Sadie. Look at that grin!

Part 4 - my TWO kids

Here are some of my favorite recent pics of both kids. Abram is such a good brother. He loves to kiss Sadie and hold her hand/arm/anything he can get. Sadie is enamored by her brother. He is the source of constant entertainment around our home. I can't wait to watch these two grow up together.
