Noah really enjoyed watching football with the boys :)

loving playing in the "mountains" with Uncle Clay's wheelbarrow!


















and learned how to say "its a girl!!" to tell the fam about our new little addition!

We can't believe God has chosen to bless us with another precious little one!! and we are so completely thrilled!!!

I love Saturdays!
pancake breakfast!














family worship time!














fishing in the creek!


















i really can't get enough of this little one or his dad! :) two of the faces i adore :!












getting really dirty!


















dirty little scraped up knees!


















.. and the fact that it doesn't bother him at all :)














attempting to kill fish with rocks :)


















contemplating on whether to finish this fish and crab off :)














the temptation is too great














... but how can we blame him? he got this love of raw fish from us :)
as if the day couldn't get better ...... sushi!!
chris makes much better sushi than any restaurant i've ever seen!!














i know i don't deserve such joy! but in my heart i know i was made for it :) and I know the best is yet to come! God is so good to us! :)

.... "Its not that I did choose You, for Lord, that could not be; this heart would still refuse You, Had You not chosen me. My heart owns none before You, for Your rich grace I thirst; this knowing, if I love You, You must have loved me first." (Josiah Conder, 1836) 1 John 4:19

God has freely given us all things! (Romans 8:32)
"The meaning of 'He will give us all things' can be put thus: One day we will see that nothing- literally nothing- that could have increased our eternal happiness has been denied us, and that nothing- literally nothing- that could have reduced that happiness has been left with us! What higher assurance do we want than that?" J I Packer, Knowing God
