Her first knock knock joke!  I love it!!!

And we just play!  I mean look at this face!  I just want to eat him up!


And what about this dream come true (for mommy!) moment!  I can’t wait for her to be a little ballerina!  But for now, we just try on our big cousin’s old shoes!

Four Months Old

Monday, August 24, 2015

Sweet George!  You’ve been our baby for four months now, and we couldn’t be more in love!  You are the sweetest thing and it seems like you’ve always been a part of our family!  You are so animated and give the best, full face smiles when we look at you-it’s contagious and just the best!image
You have a schedule that we stick to, but you’re also very flexible, which is really a good thing!  We come and go a lot around here!  You eat every four to five hours and take two good naps and one little cat nap each day.image
You are about ready to roll over!  You can do tummy to back, but that’s mostly gravity.  You’ve almost got back to belly, but one arm stops you.image
You slept through the night at about six weeks, but lately you’ve been waking up again.  I remember Margaret doing the same thing.  It’s only a quick nursing and then you’re back to sleep.  Sweet moments, you and me!  And you’re still in our closet because we’re renovating and you don’t yet have a room!image
Your siblings are still crazy about you, and how could they not be?!  The boys love to make you laugh and Margaret is a little mommy to you.  Watching it all melts my heart!  I’m so grateful for all of you kids!image
Daddy and I love you more than words can say, sweet George.  But Jesus loves you more!  I pray that we would show you that and that you would never remember a day without Him in your little life!image

First Days of School!

Thursday, August 20, 2015

August 17th-first day of the Fours (Mrs. Jeanne and Mrs. Robin)imageWe had helpers getting Sam to his first day, and he loved it!  imageThen we had our traditional first day of school cookie chat when we picked him up and got home!image
August 18th-first day of the Toddler II class (Ms. Barbara)image
Margaret is going Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 9-12.  She walked right in today and was ready to play!

August 20th-first day of First Grade (Mrs. Cote)image
He’s such a big boy!  He let me walk him in to school, but when we got through the double doors, he said he could take it from there.  So I let him go.  And kept my eyes on that baby boy of mine until I lost him in the sea of people.  I know my job is to raise him to become independent and one day leave me, but already?!  So proud of you, Jacky boy!image

This school year’s Bible verse:  “Be joyful always, pray continuously, give thanks always.  For this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” 1 Thessalonians 5: 16-18

Here’s to a great year for the big three!


Happy half-birthday, sweet Jacky!!  You are so much to celebrate, and we love you so much!

Sunday, August 16, 2015

Last day of our summer break and George takes his first dip!  He was pretty indifferent, but I know he’ll love it soon!

Sweet pea!

The Horseshoe

Monday, August 10, 2015

I took the kids to the Horseshoe today for a picnic lunch.  We walk around when they finished, and I showed them where Mark purposed!  So fun!

Watching them walk like this made me flash forward way to many years.  What if they all go to Carolina together?!?!

George’s Baptism Day!

Sunday, August 2, 2015

Today, George was ‘Sealed by the Holy Spirit in Baptism, and marked as Christ’s own forever’!  It was such a special day!imageimage


imageGeorge, and our family as a whole!, are so blessed to have two wonderful god parents-Wanda and Shaun.  I know they, and their families, will both be such blessings in his life!







I missed any pictures of the delicious food, but we had Jack Brantley cater for us, and he did such a great job!  We left for church, and when we came home, the beautiful china was out and the buffet was ready!  Loved it!

So thankful for everyone that came to celebrate our sweet boy and our newest Christian!  I can’t wait to see how God will use him and work in his life!  Glory be to God for this indescribable gift!
