Our Day

Today, we had church. My handsome and growing stepson gave his life to the Lord a few years back but has been hesitant to be baptized. We've had a lot of conversations about it and today, he leaned over the Jason and said, "Dad, I want to be baptized, next week." We just were so excited! I wish we had a picture, but it happened so fast, I just didn't grab my camera. I will have pictures and video from the actual baptism, though.
 

I am just so happy for him - he has really chosen the Lord and has chosen to hold His word in His heart. He is very serious about his decision and even though it took him a little while to decide on baptisms (which take alot of courage!) we know that his decision is a solid, wise one that God led his heart to. If you get a moment, pray for him this week, will you?
 
Then, there are these little girls. Man, they are both messes individually, but get them together, and you are in for it. Avery won't keep her hair up to save her life. It aggravates me to no end, not because I want her hair to be picture perfect, but because it's CONSTANTLY in her face. Drives me crazy.
 

 
This little munchkin played in the sprinkler and kept taking "showers." She is such a joy with her gorgeous smile and personality!!

 
She kept telling me "Cheese!" Think we stick a camera in their face from time to time, or what?


 
I tried to get a good picture of Avery (who is swimming like crazy), but she kept just wanting to spit water out of the pool.

 
Oh, Sophie. You are my crazy child.

 
And I did get a few action shots of the powerful athletes in action, which I will be sending off the Sports Illustrated shortly.

These are some great shots I got of some fabulous looking kiddos!
 

 
Tell me he doesn't look 20, here.

 
She is loving every minute of swimming these days!!

It was a very good day.

I love it when God smiles upon us. I mean, He smiles upon us all the time. But sometimes, it's like sunshine, and Christmas morning, and rainbows, and babies, and awesomeness. On steroids. And I know that those times are not always permanent, so I learn to really wrap myself in His goodness, to take it all in, be happy, and just sit back and wait to see what He is going to do in my life.
We have been struggling so long. I knew it was only a matter of time before things would be OK again. Where we would feel a little stability. Where we would take all of the things we learned while struggling and apply then when times are good.
We have alot of great things going on in our lives right now. Some really great things. Some amazing, mindblowing, off the grid kind of great things. I wish I could share more, but for right now, let's just say that we are incredibly blessed with some great opportunities God is putting in our lives.
I leave you with a gorgeous picture of our biggest blessin…

What is Your Skin Care Regimen?

Since turning 34 this year, I've been really trying to make sure I am taking care of my skin. I have been using Cover Girl Liquid Powder for years, but it always seemed to break my neck out. And full disclosure, my face cleaning routine consisted of using Avery's baby wipes (which actually do remove eye makeup surprisingly well). So, needless to say, my skin didn't always look its best. So, I received some gift cards for my birthday and I decided to go ahead and spring for some better products. First thing I did was get something designed to clean my face. I ordered the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion System. This system came with the battery-operated scrubber with both a brush and foam pad, plus every day face wash and microdermabrasion wash to be used twice a week. I have really loved using this system. The beauty is that you can really use any face wash you'd like. I will probably buy a pore-reducing wash after the tube they sent me is empty. This system really exfolia…

My Trip To Rockport

My best friend moved to Rockport 3 years ago when her husband was offered the job as airport manager. His sisters, brother in law, nieces and nephews and mother all lived in that town, and two years ago, the construction on their newly built homes was completed. (his sister and brother in law, and my friend and husband built homes side by side)
A week ago Thursday, she called me and asked if she could bring her family up to DFW and would I be willing to have a few stay with us. She told me that there was a mandatory evacuation in Rockport, but they were thinking it would only be until Monday. Of course, I always love seeing her, so I was pretty excited for an excuse for them to come up and spend the weekend. As the day went by, they were predicting a more severe storm, and the family decided to get a hotel room in Waco, close to their son, who went to Baylor. They wanted to be closer to Rockport and brought animals on the trip, so thought a hotel would be the best option. My friend&#…
