I am so thankful to have my girls here with me. I know you have all heard about the little girl, Somer, who was walking home from school, and never made it. That is 15 mins from my house, and now there is a child killer on the loose. I can not imagine what that mother is going through right now. Today I will pray for that mother, and the siblings she left behind. As I sit here and type this, the trash is being collected outside, and just the sound of that truck makes me cringe. That monster dumped her body in the trash.
Gracious God, in the vulnerability of a child, we recognize our own fragility. In their tender innocence, we are reminded that life is meant to be lived with curious and joyful abandon. Help us, who are no longer children, to retain the freshness of childhood and to be the protectors and mentors of those whose lives are just beginning. May we see in their eyes the clear window of heaven. Guide us in the ways to keep all children safe and in your great love, O Lord, hold them in your peaceful embrace so they are not overcome by loneliness, fear, or danger. We ask this for the sake of your love. Amen.

1st day of preschool

It seems like most of my posts have been about Mallory lately, but she is the one that has had a very busy week! This was her very first day of preschool! Yes, it is 8:45 am and she is eating a turkey hot dog (minus the bun). She loves them, so whatever I can get in her for breakfast, I do it :)

Happy 3rd Birthday to my sweet Mallory

Bill took the girls to see Elmo for Mallory's Birthday, and Sissy (aka Ashlyn) opted out. They had a ball!

On stands now!

I don't know if you remember, but not long ago I helped my baby sister on a photo shoot, and we had a ball! Well, here are the results, and SHE MADE THE COVER!!! WHOOHOOO! Way too go Lauren, you look beautiful, as always!

It was so hot outside, and she still braved that big jacket! What a trooper!
I loved this shot!

WOW! Amazing, and she is a mommy of 2!

We tried to find a way to get those shoes in the car, but no luck :)

Crazy days

It has rained the past two days here, and I forgot how MUGGY it was! I was trying to take a picture of the pool for you, but I am not a good photographer, so my pics are really bad. I love that we back up to a conservation area, so no building there, ever!

Not only do I have to decorate the inside, but now I have to go buy new patio furniture to go out here! So much to do. Notice the mulch bags. On my to do list along with planting those plants that line the outside of the pool. Oh how I wish I could just buy everything from Frontgate!
With all the rain, these little bugs have spent so much time up here...

THE PLAYROOM!'s scary!
They have ripped open boxes like it's Christmas!

I need the Nester, Kim, or Melissa (private, but WOW, her house/taste is AMAZING) to come decorate my house. One rule, they have to bring their stuff! HAHA!
