Nathan's Blog

Hey guys - I know those of you that know Jessica have been following Nathan and Tricia's story via his blog. For those of you that have no idea what I'm talking about - please click on the link below this post. This couple is on an extraordinary journey and you can only be encouraged by reading about it. I highly suggest reading the post Afraid of Heights from a couple of days ago, and also Safe and Sound which is a video of Nathan holding his micropreemie for the first time. He makes the comment, "When she first touched me, all her stats went up right to where they should be." It made me think, if we would let God "hold" us like that, all our stats would go up too! Just wanted to encourage ya'll to keep checking in on them, there's still a long road ahead of them and we can never pray too much!

Lunch time Chat

Erin: Mommy, did you know there's a little bit of Jesus' blood in Anna's heart and a little bit in my heart?
Mommy: Did you say Jesus' blood?
Erin: Yes, but just a little bit.
Mommy: Did you talk about Jesus' blood at school today?
Erin: No, we talked about 'hogs' (groundhogs).

I suppose they did talk about the blood of Jesus today at school, and just bits and pieces got remembered. I'm thankful for those bits and pieces though. Every little seed counts!

6 Months Old

Today is Anna's 6 month old birthday! She is such a blessing to us and we couldn't imagine our family without her. We continue to be amazed at all the Lord has done in her life in the first six months and can't wait to experience all He will do in the next six months. She is our true joy, our little miracle

Playing her musical stage - she has to love to sing like her momma!
Always loving on that thumb!
Wow...I do have a big toe!

Catching Up!

The girls and I have had a few fun days that I haven't had time to blog about - so here are some pictures.

Fireman Cody to the rescue with his handy Dalmatian helper, Erin. We got to show Cody one of our favorite treats - The Jumpin' Monkey. It didn't take him long to get his stride and have a blast. Ryan and Emily were there too, but it's hard to catch Ryan for a picture - he was too busy having fun.
Okay, so get a crink in your neck checking this one out, but I don't have the energy to go in and flip it. Erin was thrilled that there was a Dalmatian costume - she is in the 101 Dalmatians phase.
Baba got Erin this cool ballet mat and bar and outfit for Christmas so she was showing her some moves. It also came with a cool follow along DVD. Who knows what's in Erin's future!
This is my best friend Jenny and her husband Mark, with Elena Kay(3) and Cassia(1). Yesterday was Cassia's first birthday party. These little girls are very special to us and will be my girl's life long friends.
