I love you, KP. I'm so thankful God gave us three years of face-to-face friendship. I know that we will forever converse, whether it by via phone, email, or FACEBOOK. Your parents also have a sweet place in our hearts and we will miss seeing them twice a year. I am so excited for you and MP. God is certainly the giver of all good things. How grand that he's given you each other, a job to provide, a house to live in, and a sweet little baby in your family. I wish I could be there to celebrate the baby's birth but please, please, please call us over here in Georgia when he/she decides it's time to make an appearance.
Some of my memories of KP:
eating PB&J sandwiches together
traveling to St. L for a week long stay at her parent's house
learning about our cameras together (can you say "manual"?)
gift of the stuffed frogs
conversations after the worship service
giggling & crying on the phone
talking about pregnancy and motherhood
apartment horror stories
We love you, KP.

Luke: "Mom, who are those people walking through our neighborhood with their Bibles?"Andrew: "Oh, I know. They are telling people about God."Me: "Well, how many Gods are there?"Both boys: "There's only ONE TRUE GOD!" (children's catechism #10)Me: "Well, those people are telling others of.....Luke, interrupting: "...a pretend god?"Me: "Well....yeah."Andrew: "'Since we know the one true God, does that make us better than them, Mom?"Me: "Certainly not. Our hearts are just as dirty as theirs...but what do we have that we could share with them?Andrew: "Jesus! A savior!"Me: "Do we deserve Jesus and his grace?"Luke: "Nope, but he died on the cross for my dirty heart anyway, right, Mom?"

(Straight out of camera = SOC)
When thinking about items to include in their boxes, here's what my brain (and the Internet) spit out:
Selection of colored paper & cardboard
pastels or Cray-pas
Brushes and sponges
Glitter and/or glitter glue
Colored popsicle sticks
Old fashioned wooden clothes pegs
Bits of ribbon
Bits of rick-rack
Collection of odd buttons
Box of pictures cut from magazines
Pieces of Styrofoam
Small square boxes

I've been waiting for this....Thank you, Dr. Mohler.
Justin Taylor writes:
I have refrained from extended comment on the health care reform bills—not because I do not have multiple concerns about the bills, but because I recognize that committed Christians can and will disagree over the political and policy issues involved. The trip-wire for me is the issue of human life. The current bill spells disaster when it comes to abortion. I cannot remain silent in this crucial moment where the sanctity of human life is at stake.
Read his whole commentary, where he quotes Charmaine Yoest, president of Americans United for Life, who argues that the bill represents “the single greatest expansion of abortion since the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision.”

Please be patient with me as I'm still updating some of the features. The slideshow is the hardest part of this new template so be on the lookout of familiar faces flashing through soon. Thanks to Cinnamon Girl Studio for this fabulous design!

I couldn't find my cell phone so I used the free service at www.wheresmycellphone.com and heard it ring.....five feet away from where I was standing.
No, I don't have a Droid....I just liked the picture.

So, I think it's a sure thing to say that my children have their heart set on their first dog being a pug. As a family, we are still a few years from making that happen but, in the meantime, we will love on those cute snorty little dogs!

Who keeps up with this stuff?

Of course, he was surrounded by two 2-year olds who also made a mess in their area.
Basketball is one of Luke's favorite games. He's thinking of entering next year's slam dunk contest - neighborhood entries only, of course.
Some artwork by my third grade students that I teach once a week. Bak-Bak!
A friend took Abigail through the Starbucks drive-thru for her first time ever. She fell in love with her hot chocolate...it also made her nose run. (DON'T CLICK ON THE PICTURE TO ENLARGE...it's GROSS!)
Andrew has been turning his nose up at play-dough lately because he thinks it's for younger kids - but he found some toothpicks and designed his own centipede this afternoon. He was proud and said, "Mom, go grab your camera, please!".
A.C. came over to play one afternoon this week. She mastered her skills on the scooter.
Andrew is enjoying one of his activity books that has alot of written codes, mazes, and word finds. He loves to learn, sound out his words, tell me what letters he sees on road signs, and stick his nose in a book.
This morning before church I just had to capture my sweet little girl on camera. She brings such joy to me heart. PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE DIRTY FINGERPRINTS ON THE DRYWALL. Didn't you hear me? Don't look!

In the story of Arno Pet we find a picture of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. How great the Father's love for us!

My cousin, Kelly, is a graphic design artist and I'm simply amazed at her talent (she went to THE best design school in the nation!). Kelly's business, The Stamped Envelope is closing shop so she's offering 15% off any order with the code 004728 by March 31. You won't be disappointed!
BTW, if you'd like to take a look at Kelly's newest endeavor (partnered with her mom), you can see some of her work at Kalos Photography.
I knew it was gonna rain tonight so I got the bag of sand out today, poured it into a container, and let my children enjoy their last dry afternoon for a while.
