Little Stinker!

I could not resist posting this hilarious video of Mayce. She was only 19 months old, and as you can see, she had found a new game with our phone. She would push the locate button on the phone and make it start beeping, then I would grab it from her to turn it off. Her face is absolutely priceless before she pushes the button....pure ornery....looks just like her Gramps:):):) (Sorry there is no sound...took the clip with our digital camera and it doesn't have sound.)

Makin' Mama proud!

My daughter said the most beautiful Thanksgiving prayer I believe I have ever heard, and it truly made me cry! It went a little something like this:
"Lord, thank you for all of my families here with me and for all you give us. Please bless everybodies and I hope they enjoy all of their presents. In your Holy Name, Amen."
Now, there weren't any presents awaiting all of us (a little mix up with Christmas), but her intent was just precious, and I'm pretty sure about 12 people in Abilene, TX were all a little more thankful that day! Hope you enjoy looking at the snow as much as we did:)

First snowball she has ever thrown!
"PLEEEASE can I go out now!"

So my son has really picked up on a new word, and I absolutely think it's adorable! He LOVES the word "actually," however, he says it "actuwee." It is the sweetest thing, because he says it for everything:) For example:
"Bryce, did you sleep good, buddy?"
"Actuwee, yes!"
"Bryce, do you need to go potty?"
"Actuwee, I do."
"Bryce, I love you."
"Actuwee, I wuv you bery much."
I love how their little minds work:) Here are just a few pictures from our church Fall Festival. We had a blast this year, and the weather was just perfect:) We stayed for 3 hours and lived up every sugar-high moment of fun that we could:) They did enjoy alot more of the festival, besides the animals, but we were just too busy to take pictures....sorry:) Enjoy!

Some friends of ours, Ramzi and Diane, came with us and brought their daughter, Elise.
Isn't she adorable!

We went to Abilene a few weeks ago and got to visit with my Nanny, Aunt Sue and Cousin Amy. Oh, and I can't forget to mention Jobe...the dog who thinks he's a child:) We had so much fun seeing everyone and enjoying some tasty roast... thank you very much, Nana! We had a really good time! Love you guys!
I also just wanted to briefly mention an incredible teaching series that our pastor is in the middle of right now. I have been so blessed by the knowledge the Lord is imparting through this message. As many of you know, according to scripture, our souls must continually be bathed by the Word in order to be consistently transformed. We must allow the Lord, daily, to take our will and make it His own, because our soul will certainly try to take control....not pretty:) If you have a minute, check out the link:
It's an anointed teaching that I pray takes your walk to a new level of freedom. Enjoy!
"Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom." (2 Cor. 3:17)

Sprinkle Mania!

Just wanted to share a few pictures from our cookie making party:) They had a blast with their friend, Taylor, and they made a HUGE mess:) Bryce kindof gave up on us pretty quick, but Mayce and Taylor held out for the finished product!

Bryce didn't really get into the cookie decorating...can you tell?

"Three sprinkles for me...two for the cookie"

I think Taylor approved:)

I'm pretty sure she had more sprinkles than icing!
