Under my pillow....

...you'll find this:

Know what it is? Yes, it is a fuzzy picture of Addie's tooth. She lost her first tooth yesterday (Monday). She has been working on it for about a week or so, and pulled it herself at school yesterday. The tooth fairy came last night and took her tooth and left her money. She was very excited! I can't believe how quickly she is growing up. It breaks my heart. But she looks so cute with it gone. And man, they never stop teething do they??? They get teeth as babies, lose them, get some more, need braces, need wisdom teeth out...they teeth for 16-18 years don't they?? Maybe that's why our kids are irritable alot. Who knew?!? :)

(Her "haircut" is starting to grow a little, too!)

Here is a picture of Addie and Matt meeting Boone for the first time. Kids under 12 were not allowed in the nursery due to the flu, RSV, etc. so they had to meet him through the window of the nursery. They were so excited to meet him!!

Here is just a cute picture of them waiting to go to church on Sunday morning. They were all ready and were waiting on the cue from Jeff and I for them to head to the car. As they were waiting, Matthew laid down in the floor with his Leapster, and Addie sat down in the floor to watch. It was a quiet, sweet moment, which can be rare around our house these days. I was glad I had my camera handy to capture it.

Baby Boone

Baby Boone (my baby sister Holly's new little baby boy) made his entrance into this world on Wed. night, 2/20. It was a quicker than expected arrival, but very much welcomed!! He weighed 6 lbs and is 19 inches long (he is tiny!!!). And he is one of the calmest babies I've ever seen. He is just perfect. Congratulations, Holly and Levi. We are so happy for you, and can't wait to get there to see him again!!

All swaddled up...

Boone and his Aunt Heidi. He whimpered every time someone took him out of my hands :).

Boone and Pa.

I think his lips and nose are so precious!!

The Mission...

Jeff and I once again were blessed to be able to attend Winterfest in Gatlinburg this past weekend. Although the word awesome loses some of its' powerfulness because of its' overuse, the weekend was AWESOME in the truest sense of the word. The theme was "The Mission", and the sessions focused on...knowing Jesus, being Jesus, seeing Jesus, and sharing Jesus. It was incredible. I am completely transformed, I hope for that to be renewed every morning, and I am challenged to know Jesus, be Jesus, see Jesus, and share Jesus. I pray the same for you....

Snow Bunnies for a Day

We had a blast playing in the snow this past weekend on a little weekend getaway. Hope you enjoy our pictures (it's a little hard to keep a camera handy while trying to snow tube, but nevertheless, I got a couple)....
