Singin' in the rain

Just had to add these "o too cute" pictures from the kids first play day in the rain:) This was a few weeks ago when it rained like every 30 seconds here in big D, so they had plenty of opportunity to strip down to their skimpy's and have a blast! As for Monty and I, we are having a wonderful, relaxing anniversary 4 days:) Enjoy!

What a stud!

A very cold Mayce waiting patiently at the back door!

Better Late Than Never:)

So, I'm a little behind on this whole blog thing.....but better late than never, right?:) Actually, the truth is, Monty's cousin has a blog and it is so cute it makes me want to puke (love you, jess!), so I was a little unsure of myself and my very limited creative abilities:) However, I know that our family will be elated to see, and read, about the kids....and for that reason alone, I am VERY happy to attempt "the blog!" Well, to sum up our happy little home....Mayce is now 3 and Bryce is now 2. Thanks to Bryce, I am VERY happy to report that everyone in the Durham house is now officially potty trained:) Monty and I will be celebrating our 7th anniversary this Sunday, so we sent the kids to good ol' Abilene for a few days......thank you, Nana and Pops! We have an extremely eventful weekend planned: sleeping in, eating out, sleeping, sleeping, sleeping, eating out:) It is always bitter sweet when the kids go to grandma's because I truly adore, crave and lavish the time with my sweet hubby, but I can't deny the heart wrenching silence in our little home:( When our precious Father says" comes in the morning," I have no doubt that this phrase embraces the moment your little blessing jumps out of bed yelling "good morning, mommy!", wraps their little arms around your neck, and kisses you with that beautiful morning breath! There is truly nothing sweeter! If you can't tell, Monty and I adore our babies and we adore our Father for trusting us with them:)

In the last month, we have moved from McKinney to Euless to be closer to the wonderful body of believers that we worship with at Gateway:) It has been so nice to hop in the car and drive a grand total of 10 minutes to get to church! The Lord has been so gracious with us and we are greatly enjoying a season of peace and growth.

Here are a few recent pics of the blessed.

Daily and Mayce at Nana and Pops. Mayce absolutely adores Daily!
