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. :)

Sweet Friends.....

The other day we got to meet up with some sweet friends we hadn't seen in awhile. We met Kate, Rachel and their parents at Chick-Fil-A. We traveled with Kate and her parents to China when we picked up Deacon, and they picked up Rachel. It was great to see them.

All the kiddos playing on the slide.
These two crack me up. I think if we lived closer together they would be into quite the trouble together. :) KG just loved little Rachel, and wanted to mother her.
Kate and Rachel. I just love these two little girls.
The whole clan!! We had a great time. Thanks for meeting us! We will have to do it again soon. :)

Happy 4th of July!!!

Yes I am a little behind in blogging, but trying to get caught up. :)

We had a GREAT 4th of July this year. We had several nights of getting together with friends, good food, and fabulous fire works.

KG, Deacon, and CT all decked out for church and the 4th.

Sweet Reese and Mo.
KG and her little friend P. Yes Sarah we see you in the background. :)
S and CT getting ready to watch our first round of fireworks.
Deacon was a little scared at first, but then would ask for more. He also kept saying My Fireworks. :) Yes, son those are just for you.
Deacon and KG out at the ranch watching fireworks.

We are blessed and thankful for all those who have fought to keep us free. Thank you for your sacrifice!

Welcome Home Daddy and Bubba!!!

After 13 looooong days apart, we headed to the airport to meet Daddy and Bubba home from China. They had a FABULOUS trip!! There were a lot of lives changed. I'm so glad that they were able to go and be apart of what the Father is doing!!

Deacon so proud of his Welcome Home Daddy sign.
One of the signs we made for CT.
Stephen, KG, and Deacon super excited to see everyone.
Here they are!! Deacon is crying because he tried to run to them, and he wasn't supposed to go past that red and black line. Someone grabbed him, and it scared him. He got over it pretty quick when Daddy picked him up. :)

We are SO glad to have them home.

Par-tay, Par-tay, Par-tay!!

Trip to Nana and Papa's.

While Daddy was away at camp we took a quick trip to Nana and Papa's. We had a great time just hanging out and having fun!!

Nana and Papa set up the blow up slide in the backyard. This provided for hours of entertainment!

We took the electric car out to get a snocone. It even has seatbelts. :) The kids thought this was fun.
