Happy Birthday to the best husband and father in the world (as Bryce would say). We love you more than words can ever express.

I really need to get better at blogging. I have missed Halloween, Jayden's birthday, Thanksgiving, baby updates, and more little things that have happened, all of which are very important. I might still blog about them....on with this topic...

Scars are thought to be a negative thing, accidents that happen that leave a mark on your body and can last forever. They can leave a lasting memory. I know some are bad memories, but with these, good or bad, we learn and (hopefully) grow from them.

Bryce has this cute little scar on his eyelid (I think it makes him look tough) that he got when he was about 14 months old. He fell at his grandmother's house and hit the bricks on the fireplace. He stayed away from the fireplace for about 5 minutes....he is ALL boy, and I love it.

my wild man :) this was when he was about 14 months old

Jayden has a scar that I LOVE and that I see every day. His scar goes all the way down his chest. It is a memory, a rough memory, and something he is going to have to live with for the rest of his life. This scar is a reminder to me of the wonderful doctors and nurses that saved my baby's life. It is a memory that God heard our prayers and He was (and is) watching over Jayden, and all of us. It is a memory that God is in control and we need not worry.

messy face :)

I have a scar that I absolutely adore. My c-section scar. If it wasn't for that lovely thing and the doctors and scientists who figured out this route of exit long ago, Bryce, Jayden, and I (and this next precious baby) would not be here. I think of this blessing every time I get ready in the morning and see it.

Whether we love our scars (physical, emotional, spiritual) or not, we hopefully learn from them. They help us to grow and mold us into the person we are today. My prayer is that my boys learn from life's scars and always look to God to help them grow their faith through these scars.

love these two so so much

with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
Let all that I am praise the Lord;
may I never forget the good things he does for me."

We are excited to announce that we are pregnant.
Baby #3 will be here in May.

We would love prayers for a healthy baby! Thank you so much!!

Aunt Moo's Wedding

Megan and Garrett's wedding was in Galveston. We had such a fun time!

We went to the beach for a while. Jay did not like getting dirty, so there are no pics of him playing.

Bryce and Jayden feet :)

We were all in the wedding, which I was a little nervous about what I was going to do with the kids if they didn't walk down the aisle, but they did great!! After Bryan did his part in the wedding, he took the kids so that they didn't have to stand in the front the whole time. Then, Bryce came back at the end to escort me out. So sweet!! I wish I had a picture of that.

reward for doing so well

Cutest ring bearers ever!
love him

We love you Aunt Moo and Uncle G!!

Summer Part II

I realized that, because my photo uploader wasn't working, I missed a lot of pics. So, this post is almost all pics. And get ready for more blogs so that I can catch up.
