A small attempt to pen those precious moments that seem to go by all too quickly. Things that would easily be forgotten.....may they always be remembered....here's hoping this site never crashes. :)

The Cutting of the Tree.

A few weekends ago my parents and brother Chris came over for the day to hang out. The guys got the bright idea to cut down a dead tree, and away they went. They spent the whole afternoon out there (well, Chris did not-ha ha!!), but accomplished their goal. I came out just in time to snap some pictures. :)

Deciding exactly how it should be done.
Going for it.

Almost there......


This video is a little more exciting than the pictures.

Our new sweet baby boy Deacon!! We will travel to get him in a couple of months. He is almost 18 months and is from the People's Republic of China. We are very excited, and can't wait to go and pick him up. He is a precious little boy who was born with cleft lip and palate. This will be a long road as far as repair is concerned, but we are so excited the Lord has given him to us. We will keep you posted when we get our travel approval.

The Maiden Voyage....

KG got her booster seat in the mail yesterday, and couldn't wait to take it for a spin. She was so excited when it got here that she sang about it for 30 minutes while I put it together. "I love, love, love, love, love, just love my booster seat!" Then today before we left she was standing at the door of the car squealing with delight about how excited she was to ride in that seat. ha!! We will see just how excited she is to ride in it when she is in the 4th grade. ha ha!! :)
All buckled in and ready to go!

Picnic at the Park

Yesterday we loaded up the picnic basket and headed to the park to hang out with some friends. We had a great time of food and fellowship. The weather was BEAUTIFUL!!! KG and one of her BEST Friends swinging at the Park.

KG Praise The Lord

This is an old video I found on my other camera the other day. This was Spring 08. KG is 2 1/2 here. We were out digging up trees for Nana. KG and I stayed in the truck, and she was making up songs. :) I happened to catch this one on video.
