Honor's Night 2012

     Our family is a member of CCCHE, a home school group in our area.  Each year in May we participate in Honor's Night.  This year our Marianna was one of the Kindergarten graduates.
     She was SO excited!!! 

     Each family has a space in the program.  Nathan introduced us & presented the girls with their grade level completion certificates.  Then, Kaley recited Hebrews 11 & Marianna recited the ABC Bible Verses.

     We are proud of our girls!  They did a great job!  Now, let's finish up our school work!  lol  A special thanks, as always, goes to Nathan's mother for taking these pictures!  :)

It's A Boy!

     Praise the Lord!  Everything has been going perfectly with this pregnancy!  I am due on October 3rd.  We found out yesterday that it is a baby boy.  We are overjoyed!  Clay will have a baby brother to play with plus 3 older sisters to keep them in line.  Having 3 girls has been one of the greatest joys in my life.  I'm sure it will be just as special raising the 2 little boys and look forward to every minute of it.  I am not stupid enough to think it will all be a "bed of roses", but in those times God is our refuge & always makes a way!  His love for us & the joy of raising children is unexplainable.  Doing so with your best friend & the love of your life is also God's rich blessings! 
     My long time doctor has retired from delivering.  I was truly devastated but looking back even that was God's blessing in disguise.  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my new doctor!!!  She is so wonderful!  She has almost as many children as I do.  The staff is so friendly & offer such sweet, personal service.  The office facility & hospital I am now using is definitely an upgrade from before!  Also, it's even more cost efficient.  Only God works like that!  :)
     Names?  We like the name Graham but have no middle name picked out.  We always use at least 1 family name so settling on that is what is in question right now.  Some names seem better left on the family tree.  Other options include Graham Bryan, Graham Bailey, Graham Jackson...just not sure yet.  Suggestions are definitely welcome!
