I want to try this!


This is a cute idea for Father's day


This weekend I spent the day with five of my favorite people, we had our 1st annual discipleship reunion. We all met in college and really experienced life together. It has been years since we have all been in the same room with no agenda other than to visit. It was so refreshing and relaxing! We made all the foods we used to eat when we would get together and watched homemade videos that will never be shown to ANYONE outside our circle (right ladies!) and caught up on life. There has been graduations, weddings, births and moves to talk about. We rummaged through old pictures and laughed about how we thought life was so rough back then.
I love you ladies and am thankful to our Father for placing you each in my life. I can't imagine the past 7 or so years without you! It is that type of friendship that you could not talk for months but pick right where you left off with no awkwardness or no skip. We have coped with heartache, laughed off embarrassment, battled through sin and experienced love and joy that can only come from Christ.
I am already looking forward to next year!

Us 5 years ago! The night Nicole got engaged!

Us now with our attempt to recreate the same photo!

This is usually what we ended up doing whenever we got together....singing, laughing, dancing.

Peyton is 2!!!

I know a few of you have been asking when I am going to talk abotu Peyton's party so here ya go......
We had so much fun watching him 'work the crowd'. He enjoyed running around with his friends and making us all laugh. He is loved by so many and we are thankful for everyone's help. You all are so sweet in doing things that were not even asked of you....taking pictures, grilling, cleaning up. We love you all!

The theme was trains and they were everywhere from the cake to the favors to Peyton's shirt.

So many family and friends gave him some great gifts! He got books, clothes, blocks, games, train whistle and hat, greenbrier batting helmet and tee, braves pillow and lots more fun things!

One of Peyton's sweet girlfriends, Maria helped open presents and another girlfriend, Greer was very into the dinosaur someone gave him. I have tried about fifty times to download pictures of the two precious girls but my internet keeps going down.
My dear friend Riki took TONS of pictures and as soon as I figure out to download numerous pictures in a sensible way you can see them.
I can't believe our little boy is now 2! These past two years have been some of the most fun and raising Peyton has been such a joy from the Lord!
We love you Peyton! You make me and your daddy proud!
