Truth....

...I found this the other day while cleaning.  I always find this on days that I really need it!  I don't really remember where I copied this from, but I'm so glad I wrote these down!

*My children were created for a specific reason and are a gift to me!!

*We're on a good journey, despite our ups and downs!!

*God will use these difficulties for His good and wise purposes!!

*I can be okay even while my children are not.

I am really not quite sure how this day has come.  How are you already 4 years old?!?!?!

You are a blessing to our family Benjamin-teaching us each day to be better parents and friends!

We love you forever, you're our favorite Ben in the whole world!

On the move!!!

video

Josie is on the move!  She has been scootching on her bunz for about 3-4 weeks now-she just couldn't figure out how to get both legs behind her.  Well yesterday she officially did it!  Both legs moving in sync with both arms!  She is so sweet!  Enjoy!

All our love!

Preschool 2010

Today was Ben's first day at preschool for 2010!  Its amazing that he is already in the 4's class.  He did a fantastic job!  I was a bit nervous because he has a new teacher, but he did great! He barely batted an eye before giving me a hug and kiss and picking a spot on the carpet.  Here are a few pictures from the day.  I have more on my phone but can't find my memory card reader for it...I will post those soon!

Josie, Nina and Nate waiting at pick-up
Pure joy!!!

Nate, Josie and Ben-Ben's ready to be done!

She's here!!!

I am the proud Aunt to this beauty!

Emmaleigh Elaine B. was born 8/15/2010 at 9:34 pm.  She weighed in at 10 lbs. 13 oz and is 21 1/2 inches long!

She is absolutely beautiful!  I was so happy to be by Kayla's side through her pregnancy and through her c-section delivery!

Praying for you sweet Emmaleigh that you will grow to love God, walk in His ways, and may your life reflect His love for others!

All our love!

Happy 2nd Birthday Nate!

How has it been 2 years since Nathaniel was born?  It has been amazing having him as a part of our family.  We had such a hard time deciding on his name before he was born.  But the minute I saw him, I knew he needed to be Nathaniel James Earl.  Nathaniel means "Gift from God".  He has been one of our 4 favorite gifts (the other 3 being Jesus' sacrifice on the cross, Benjamin and Josephine).

We had a fun-filled day today celebrating Nate's big day.  Here are some pictures to recap!
