Maci is really loving gymnastics. "Nastics" as she says it. Donnie got to go with us this time and snap some pictures.


My Aunt Alice and cousins Connie and Vicky came up from Texas to visit. My grandma and Aunt are very very close. I think it has been about 5 or 6 years since they have seen each other, so this was a very emotional goodbye.

My nephew Justin just graduated from the Marines and he came home to visit for a week. Justin lived with us for a while when he was younger, so he's pretty special to me. When he leaves he will be going to South Carolina for training and we won't get to talk to him again until Thanksgiving. So we tried to spend as much time with him as we could.

My mom had a dinner for him and had all the family over. Justin told us all about his time in boot-camp and how hard it was both physically and mentally. We were all very excited to get to see him! Maci refused to smile

I took these pics of Maci and Gabi several weeks ago at church. They looked so cute sitting there together I couldn't resist.

This is where I find my HOPE...
in Jesus Christ.
May the God of HOPE fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with HOPE by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

My friend Debbie called yesterday and asked if Heidy could stay all night tonight because her hubby Mark had planned a "Date" for them at New Harmony. Of course I said it would be okay. Maci loves it when Heidy comes over to play, so I knew she would be thrilled that she was going to stay all night.

Heidy arrived around 4:30 pm and informed me that her mommy and daddy were going on a date. When I asked her what she thought they were going to do on their date she said "I THINK THEY ARE GOING TO KISS!" And then she covered her face like she was embarrassed. She then pointed her finger at me and said, "THAT IS OUR LITTLE SECRET, OKAY!" I laughed and laughed at her! Some of the things that come out of Heidy's mouth are just hilarious. Or as Heidy says, "HIWARIOUS!"

Heidy and Maci had so much fun together! They jumped on the trampoline, had a tea party and played dress-up. We ordered a pizza for supper and then they took a bath. I made a bed on the living room floor for them to sleep on. I popped them some popcorn and they both laid down and watched "Daddy Day Care". It wasn't long before they finally pooped out!

I took a few pictures of them, but everytime I tried Heidy turned her head. Except for the ones in the bathtub.

Do you think you have enough toys?

They were asleep by 9:00 PM
