Mommy and daddy got a new comforter! It's probably no surprise to our friends and family who know us well, that we decided the night before our yard sale last weekend, to strip the comforter off of our bed and sell it. Yep, we just decided we didn't like it anymore! So like us! Carlie seems to like the idea of something new and bright to roll around on!

Guess Who.... turning TWO! Addie is working hard on her "Princess Lunch" for tommorrow, before her birthday party. We thought Paula Deen's Banana Split salad would be the perfect addition to her lunch!

"I am a child of God"

Our sweet Addie said her VERY FIRST blessing tonight, start to finish BY HERSELF! As usual, I said, "ok, let's fold our hands and close our eyes for our blessing", and she did- she does that before every meal. Brad took a breath to begin the prayer and all of the sudden, Addie begins saying (with her hands folded and her eyes closed), "Thank you.....thank you....thank you....amen". We couldn't understand what came after the "thank you's", but I know one thing, our sweet Addie is simply amazing. Her heart is so big and I am humbled at her 2 year old understanding of our blessings. We talk about it, we talk about Jesus, we go to church, we listen to praise music, and I pray that she will develop a love for the Lord, but when she took it upon herself tonight to close those sweet little eyes and fold her tiny hands and pray to the Creator of all good things, I just melted. Addie's spirit is so beautiful. Indeed, "Every good and perfect gift is from above" (James 1:17), and Addie Grace Perkins is nothing short of a perfect gift, in our eyes!

A little saying ("Sweetest Dreams Tiny One") over Carlie's crib completes her room! We are finally finished decorating!

Cookin' For Daddy

Addie had a special date coming for lunch today.....Daddy!! She was super excited about daddy coming home all morning, so I let her "cook" their whole lunch! She made sandwiches- used cookie cutters for the bread (even though it's hard to tell..ha!), spread on the mayo, added cheese and deli chicken. She counted out 10 raisins and 10 chips for each plate, and added a few chocolate teddy grahams! She and daddy had a wonderful lunch together!
