Just Some Stuff

Just postin' some fun pictures tonight....some stuff to let you in our little world over the last few days!

First, let me show you my precious date tonight. Isn't he cute?We had a date night at home with steaks, homemade garlic mashed potatoes and Four Oak Farms corn on the cob, after the girls went to bed! I surprised Brad tonight with marinated steaks for two reasons. One reason: We were supposed to go the baseball game tonight, but couldn't find a sitter, so why not have a date at home? Second reason: Brad has had a rough couple of days with people not "playing" nicely on the adult playground of life. Soooo, he needed a treat, and he got it!

Have you ever wondered what you could NOT live without in your kitchen, if you had to pick only a few items to keep? I have. I realized tonight that there is no way I'd have a kitchen without my mashed potato smasher tool. I can't live without it.

We are often asked: "Is Carlie walking yet?" Nope, not without holding on to something and lately, that "something"
would be our dog's kennel. She pushes it
ALL over the house.

Oh, and please note the way Addie chooses to wear her last year's flip flops that are too small. We gave them to one of our friend's tonight, who's little girls' feet
might fit in them better. 

 We made daddy some crafts this week with foam stickers.

Sheriff Addie!

 Little Cutie!

Told ya ~ just some "stuff"! Have a wonderful weekend!

Book Suggestion

Have any of you ever read, "Discerning the Voice of God", by Priscilla Shirer? If not, I highly recommend you heading over here and purchasing a copy. Just food for thought.....

"Listen to my voice in the morning, Lord. Each morning I bring my requests to you and wait EXPECTANTLY." -Psalm 5:3

John 11:25-26

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; and whoever lives by believing in me will never die."

After church at Mimi and Granddad's house, Addie's sweet friend Bailey, dropped by to give Addie her dollhouse.
What an awesome gift!  We have been so blessed, with
generous friends!

Ahhhh, yes.... the Easter Bunny stopped by our house the night before, and the girls were thrilled with their treats! After a few Hershey Kisses and a quick breakfast, we loaded up the car, girls in their pj's, and headed to Laurens for church with Mimi Brown! It was a WONDERFUL day. Mimi Brown will be 97 years old in less than 2 weeks. God is so good, and provided a beautiful Easter morning for us all to be together.

1 Chronicles 29:13

"Now therefore, our God, we thank You, and praise Your glorious name."

Looking foward to warmer days ahead!
Happy Easter weekend, friends!!

Good Friday

“Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous man,

though for a good man someone might possibly dare to die.

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this:

While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 5:7-8

May we pause today, on Good Friday and thank Jesus Christ for this precious gift. Remain hopeful and grateful,
as we picture the cross.
Praise God today! Easter is coming! 
The tomb will be empty ~ HE WILL RISE!

Our big girl went to camp this morning!! She went to the Spring Break camp at My of her favorite places! She was so proud of herself that she was going to go "all by herself" and mommy was going to come back and pick her up! Look at her with that bookbag on her shoulders....isn't she a cutie? 
She's getting so big!

 Carlie and I had a wonderful morning making spaghetti for dinner, grocery shopping, and going to Khol's. I'm so proud of Addie for welcoming new experiences with such a huge heart. She loves to make new friends, and she loves her independence. Her sweet spirit makes going to camp, preschool, and church nursery on Sunday mornings a joy for all of us!
