6 Years and Counting

Happy Anniversary to my husband. It is hard to believe that it has been six years. They have been a rollercoaster ride of highs and lows but I am so thankful how the Lord continues to soften our hearts, deepen our love for each other and mold us together as one. Here is to many more years together! I love you!

Come out, Come out!

Come out, come out wherever you are! If you read this blog, let me know by leaving a comment. Leave your name and email by Saturday July 25 and I will do a little drawing. I will do something fun with a monogram or applique for you! A few of my friends have done this and I thought it was fun so now I am doing it! So reveal yourself!! :)

A little update on Kate. I haven't said this before because we aren't really potty training but I did buy Kate a little potty and she has successfully gone tee-tee in it everyday. But by no means are we ready to cut the cord and not use diapers. We got a little one for upstairs and then we have the one that is just the seat that fits on the regular toilet for downstairs. Kate is at a fun stage where she is very aware of what is going on and you can see that by how she plays. She loves to take a wipe and a diaper and act like she is changing the baby dolls diaper. And today I found this....

Kate was potty training her baby doll. I turned the corner and saw her in the half bathroom telling her baby to "go tee-tee." I couldn't control my laughter!

Best of Friends

Here are some more pictures of our time at the beach. My friend Noelle took these pictures and I thought they were sweet. Graham and Kate are the best of friends. We call Graham "GG" and we say that name A LOT around here! We always want to play with GG. We went to a sing a long yesterday at the library and Kate was acting very shy and very clingy to me but when Graham and Noelle got there Kate lost every bit of shyness and was up dancing with Graham and playing and wrestling with her. Kate loves her friend GG. We will miss them so much when they move to California in a month! :(

Noelle got them matching t-shirts!

Summer Fun

Okay, if you don't have one of these pools then go ahead and get over to Wal-Mart and pick one up. This little pool provides hours of fun. Since Kate is pretty fearless I thought she might not find this pool very fun, but she loves it and will go down that little slide 100 times. I had never seen this type of plastic pool before with the slide until we played at our neighbors house. And now we have one. Great and easy entertainment!
Kate loves talking on the phone like most kids. But she particularly LOVES talking to Pop (my dad). It is so sweet and cute.

Let Freedom Ring!

This is my 200th post and I find the timing quite appropriate to dedicate this one to all the men and women out there who risk their lives serving this country so that we may celebrate the great freedom we have here in America.
I was also reminded this morning that as we celebrate this freedom may we not forget where we find true freedom and that is in Christ alone!
Hope everyone had a great 4th of July.
