Treasured Moments

Luke loves his Dad.
Phrases we all hear from Luke many times a day......
Where's Dad?
Where's Dad's keys?
Where's Dad's cup?
Where's Dad's phone?
Dad's home Mom!
 
Brett has worked from home a few days lately.  His little shadow is now working from home too!

Life Lately

Life has been on the fast lane in our family lately.  Since school started, we seem to have something scheduled everyday.  I much prefer the slower pace of life, but am learning to find the joy in where we sit right now.
With no time to blog, here are a few pictures of the kids lately.
 

Our little girls can always make a tutu fit the occasion.



















 
No matter how full life gets, I thank God for the opportunity to live life with these people everyday.  I may get stressed, I may think that life could be easier if I did things differently, but God continues to speak into my life and tell me this is exactly what He has called me to do right now.
In the business of life, I pray that I continue to seek Him and hear what His will is for my life and I pray that I have the courage to follow.

Happy 6th Birthday Kate

For Kate's 6th birthday, she wanted an Ariel party.
Finding just Ariel proved to be hard, so she agreed to have some of the other princesses at her party.



 



Handmade gifts from her sister Emily. You can see from her expression how much she loved them.




Frozen nightgown from Grandma and Grandpa....another hit!



American girl doll, Isabella

Dress up outfit and matching stuffed animal from Nana and Pop....always loved!


She enjoyed a fabulous day as you can see from her beautiful earrings!  My friend that I teach bible study with invited Kate out to lunch and an afternoon of time with her.  Kate came home with some goodies and a very special memory of time with her beloved Ms. Dale!
 
Kate,
God created no one like you and we are blessed to share each and every day with you.  You wear your heart on your sleeve and every emotion that goes with it.  Your expressions are one of a kind!  You adore your big sister Emily and are a sweet big sister to Caroline. You love anything dress-up and wear no less than 10 new outfits everyday!  This past year has been a year of friendships for you.  You adore your friend Will from across the street.  You love church on Sunday, Awana on Wednesday, and CBS on Thursday.  You are learning to read and write and spend hours everyday writing notes to people and asking me how to spell words for you.  You are a free spirit at heart and we love you!
 
Happy birthday to our sweet, yet sassy six year old!
