Oaklee and Olivia

Just a few photos to show you the girls this week. This is the new tent Nana got them for V-day.




Who knew using an iPhone could be such a hair raising experience?

Yes we are still alive

We may have lost all readers of our blog due to complete lack of posting the past 6 months. If so, that is totally fine. But we will try to revive it in the days ahead and see if we can't do better. Blogs in general just seem kind of dead these days compared to Facebook and all that, but I still enjoy reading my friends' blogs because you can be a whole lot more detailed & personal in a blog than on FB, I think. Anyway, here are some current pics of Oaklee & Olivia. They LOVE being tossed by their daddy, as evidenced by the pure glee on their faces. Olivia will be a year old next Tuesday! And if anyone even reads this and didn't already know, we're expecting # 3 in July!

Some recent pics of our little ladies. It is so hard to get them to be still for a picture together! This is the best I could do. Olivia will be 6 months next week, and she continues to light up the room when she smiles. :-) Oaklee continues to expand her vocab at lightning speed. My current faves of hers are "ap-PUL juice" (strong emphasis on the 'PLE' of apple), "Whassat" (for 'What's that?' whenever she doesn't know what something is), "4-weer" (referring to Pop's 4 wheeler- her favorite mode of transportation), and "We-eell" (the two-syllable form of "well", I think I say that a lot), and "chokeet" (for chocolate, it is SO cute and is hard to resist when she says it so sweetly). These girls are so much fun.

Hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend. Here are some shots Jason got of our town's fireworks extravaganza last night. Has anyone ever seen the smiley-face firework? That was a new one to me. :-)

A Symphony in the Dark


This is my good friend from college, Becca Mutz- Rainey. We roomed together our senior year of college, and I have MANY fond memories with her. She has the most contagious laugh, funny impersonations, sweet spirit and heartfelt faith. I wanted to put a plug out there for her this week because the story of her little girl, Molly, is being aired on FamilyLife Today radio this week. HERE is a link that takes you to the website to where you can listen to all 5 broadcasts. The 3rd broadcast airs tonight, I'm not sure what time. But it is worth your time, whether you've experienced loss or not. I think anyone with kids or grandkids needs to hear it, just to put things into perspective. Their story is so riveting. As I was sitting there listening to Becca talk on the radio last night, it just hit me really hard at how personal their experience was/ is. I feel like I've gone through this with her to some degree, just because of how I know her and care about her, and the fact that I have 2 girls of my own, and I try imagine what it would've been like for me to be in her position. Anyway, please check it out because it will bless you.

HERE is a link to where you can buy her book, "A Symphony in the Dark."
