The Wedding!
We will have a son-in-law
and Savannah will have a husband...
what happens the Saturday before???
LoTs of yard work like~

Cutting down trees,

Putting out 50 bales of pine straw and needing more,

Washing windows,
thank you mama and Rosie!

Even had the bride in on the work,

Hanging lights by the pool and in the trees,

A little jumping,

and swimming,

Loved having Josh's dad and brother's family here
to help with the festivities.

It was the best of days
working toward one of the greatest days of our lives...
the wedding.

PS... Savannah graduates tomorrow
and we are excited about that too!!! :)

Thankful Thursday~ A Long Good Day

Thursday, April 28, 2011

We left home about nine o'clock this morning
headed to the Immigration office downtown Atlanta...
~ for our fingerprint appointment.
One step closer to sweet Will!
In and out in 20 minutes!!!

Then we grabbed a quick bite for lunch.

Then Scott and the bigs headed to Dahlonega
to take Amelia for a visit/ID badge and
dump Savannah's apartment for good...

while the littles and I headed to the doctor
for a sick appointment.
They have both felt yuck for about 3 weeks~
both have sinus infections
plus we were able to get EK's 6 year check up taken care of.
She needed two vaccines and SJ comforted her! :)

Don't know what they would do without each other!!!

Finally made it home about 6
and SO thankful to be safe and sound!!!

3 days until graduation~
9 days until the wedding and counting. :)

Kelly Minter

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

Tonight we were SO excited to hear Kelly Minter
@ First Baptist Hartwell.
She was wonderful~
really brought the story of Jacob, Leah, and Rachel to life
and taught us how everyday idols interfere
with our relationship with Christ.
It was the sweetest night just because my sweet bigs
were right there with me!!!
If you're looking for a great bible study,
you will love Kelly's studies! :)

Ephesians 2:4-5
Because of His great love for us,
God, Who is rich in mercy,
made us alive in Christ.

Dress Up

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

SJ absolutely LOVES dressing up.
Yesterday she was a ballerina with EK~

and today she was Cinderella.

We are looking forward to the Royal wedding on Friday. :)

Easter Afternoon

Monday, April 25, 2011

After the kitchen was cleaned and
everyone off to their house,
we changed into swimsuits and headed to the pool.
The water is shocking cold but the littles act like it's nothing!!!

A&R completely satisfied to just lay out. :)

When Scott finally made it back home,
we took a ride in the boat and...
some of our crazy children took a swim! :)

Amy and Max came over for egg dying and decorating!
SO fun!!!
The dying went great~

and I think Jingy decorated one...

but you know what their favorite part of the whole thing was???
Eating them!!!

2 each and Jingy had 2 for breakfast!
A big hit!!!
Thanks Amy and Max~ can't wait to do it again next Easter!!!

Easter 2011

Sunday, April 24, 2011

Today was a most beautiful day...
beautiful weather, great time at worship,
lunch with our family at our house,
and the perfect time for new family photos!!! :)

The littles were up before seven this morning
and were SO excited to see their Easter baskets~

and all the eggs the Easter bunny hid everywhere.

Jingy LOVED her chocolate bunny pop.

Before lunch,
we headed outside for a few photos...
only thing missing was Sissy and her sweet family!

This Easter was Jingy's first
and our last without Josh and Will!
Blessings were in abundance today~
Mainly because we celebrate a risen Savior!!!
Jesus is alive!!!
