Pre Birthday Celebration





Haven’s birthday is Monday. She got her first present last night from her nana and bapa, since they will be out of town. She really enjoyed it and has wanted a stove FOREVER! My mother in law painted it and got the dishes to match!:) Enjoy pictures. There will be more to come later……

Baby Laney

We have no name yet, although we have some time…..he has been moving a lot, so that’s been fun. Instead of watching TV in bed, Micah and I wait for him to kick us.:) It’s been such a blast. It’s been so long since we have done this (Haven will be 4 on Monday) so it has really been a blessing.
Haven and I have gotten into somewhat of a routine, now that she is in preschool and I am working 1/2 days. We (or I rather) are into naps lately, so we come home, eat lunch and then take a nap. Then we head to the gym with my aunt and work out. It’s been fun! I am really looking forward to staying home with this next one, although, as always, I would love to be able to do something from home, just to earn a little extra. Anyone know of any ideas, let me know.

Family Reunion




We had our family reunion this weekend. We went on Friday and stayed the night and then left Saturday afternoon. Here are a few pictures. It was so hot, so that is why we all have red faces. The little boy Haven is with, is sweet Isaac. He is my cousin’s son. They bonded real quickly.:)

The Awesome Ms. Grant





This concert last night was so awesome, and as always, she was so good! We got great seats, on the third row, pretty much right in front of her. She walked out, and the first thing I noticed was that I thought she was expecting. I said something to Micah and he gave me a weird look. Weeellll, she announced a few minutes later that she was expecting and that it was TWINS!! I thought it was so neat-o. Evidently, she hasn’t told a lot of her audiences just yet, so it was neat to get to hear her good news.
Then she went on to just ‘rip it up’. Man, she is so good, my favorite artist. She sang, of course, ‘Held’, along with her rendition of ‘Shout to the Lord’ and another favorite worship song of mine, ‘In Christ Alone’. Several times I just had to sit in awe, it was so indescribable that someone could have a voice so strong and she really put it out there for everyone.
Anyway, needless to say, it was awesome and I wish I could have stayed afterwards like all the other young girls (who were like 10:)) and get my picture with her and just meet her, but no such luck. Maybe the next time I see her I will be able to tell her how much her music and talent
has meant to me.
I would highly recommend going to her concert…..

A girl after my own heart

This morning, I took Haven to school and we were running late due to the crazy terrential down pour.
Haven: Mommy, what about Hicks?
Me: Hicks?? What in the world is that?
Haven: You know, the place with the donuts?
Me: Oh, Rick’s?
Haven: Yeah, can we go to that place with the donuts, and the cookies, and all the cakes? They have donuts, just like the donut shop. (near our home)
Me: Not today, but maybe soon.

There is something about Northwest Arkansas and Rick’s. You can’t get any better than that. She is truly a girl after my own heart….of course, when I was pregnant with her, I had the worst sweet tooth, more so than normal, so that might have been where she gets her love for it.:)

Haven’s First Day


Today was Haven’s first day of preschool. She had a great time. She said ‘Mommy, I don’t need to hold your hand’. Referring to all the other little girls that were holding their mommies hands while they walked to their classroom.:)
