Holly's 10th Birthday!!!

Today we celebrate Holly's 10th birthday! Wow!
We pulled out some pics from each of her b-day celebrations:

I'll add another one from tonight when she blows out her candles! We already celebrate some last week with a trip to laser tag/skating/shopping trip. :o)
(I couldn't find one of her 3rd b-day, but I'm still looking!)

We are so blessed to have this precious girly in our lives. God has blessed us beyond measure and we praise Him for her!!!
Happy 10th Birthday baby girl!!!!

Our Valentine's Day

We've had a pretty good Valentine's Day! It's been busy, but a big blessing! :)

We started out our morning by journeying to Jackson Co. to have our taxes done.
And on our way there our van's mileage rolled over to 100,000! It's been a great traveling van and we just hope it'll last us for a while longer. :) Especially since we paid it off this past fall!

Brian got his sweet valentine's a little something from us and he even got me a little something too!
:D (We usually don't go all out for V-day:)

The girls made us all cards!

After getting our taxes finished we made a quick trip to Lowe's so Brian could pick up some lumber for his man cave.
Then he treated us to lunch at Frisch's so we could see Nana and take her a little valentine. She is the asst. manager there. :)
Next up - working on the man cave!

The girls joined us so that they could write on a few boards.
Oh look - they already wrote on this one for Brian.... :o) Hehehe!
Anna drew each of our family members ^^that's Brian in his toboggan!
This is me! :)

And Holly!
We've had this stain glass light for YEARS and Brian hung it up for extra light in his garage and I thought this section on it looked like a heart! So fitting for the day!
We rounded out our day with a little dessert!

"In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins."

Here's My Heart

We were cleaning out our attic tonight and came across a little treasure. I made this box for Brian in my art class my Junior year of high school! It was for our 6 week anniversary! On the bottom it says: "Here's my heart" and on the note that was with it I had told him that I'd given him my heart with a reminder that it was breakable! :) I'm very happy that he is still my sweetheart 18 years later and my heart is also very much intact!

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

What's Happening?!

I've had plenty of things to blog about, but no time to get it published!

So here is what's been happening:

Holly has been taking a cooking class at our co-op and one afternoon she made us some muffins....all by herself!

I've always wanted to try and cook a low country boil and finally tried it out! It was pretty good, but won't be on our regular dinner list. :)

We got to keep Bella one night!

We went to the Capitol for a Right to Life - Rally for Life event to support Pro-LIFE legislation!

On a warm night in.....January.....we had a bonfire and roasted hot dogs and made s'mores! I'm just waiting for the blizzard to fall anytime now!

We also made a trip to Northeast Tennessee last Thursday with some people from our church. A precious lady that we go to church with father passed away and we went to his visitation.

We stopped off to enjoy one of the views on our way there.

Anna painted a sunflower picture for a sweet friend of ours!

That almost catches us up. :) Happy February! Holly will be 10 in about 3 weeks and I can't believe our baby will be double digits!
