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!

Pure joy!!!

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!

Josie's big week!

I don't have pictures right now, but wanted to get these bits of info. written down somehow before I completely forget!  Unfortunately, I think that's how it happens when you have more than 1 kiddo!

Anywho, Josie had a big week this week!  She now has 2 teeth (both on the bottom), learned to clap, got thrush, and is scooting around on her bottom....mostly in circles, but she goes forward sometimes! 

Fun times watching Josie grow!

All our love!
