The "Circus"

We headed to the "circus" in Anderson with some of our good friends last weekend. I knew it would be nothing like the Ringling Brothers, but let's just say thank goodness for great company! Noah kept calling it a talent show, and I decided that was a good description!

Gavin did get to ride a pony!
David's uncle was in town, so it was nice to have him there too. Notice Noah's nice small Spiderman souvenir (yes, we are already into Spiderman!).
The main reason for this post was to show you what David and his uncle thought would be fun to secretively bring home from the "circus"!
That's right! This is a GIANT Spiderman! It is too big to sit in my glider. This is a perfect item for our small house! I will rent him out for $10 a hour!

Baseball Season, Here We Come!

All I have to say is that the Atlanta Braves make me one happy girl. I am glad to be passing along the passion to Noah and Gavin. When they woke up this morning, they both dressed themselves in this...

Gavin is Two!!!

My little Gavin turned 2 on Monday, March 14th! As I find myself saying a lot, where does the time go? I feel like he's been around forever, yet shouldn't be a toddler yet. We had a wonderful time at his party celebrating with family and friends. The weather was P-E-R-F-E-C-T! On Monday, David was able to take the day off from work, and we headed to the Greenville Zoo. Again, we couldn't have asked for a better day!

I have come to the realization that, as a mom, I LOVE birthdays! It is the perfect opportunity to celebrate God's gift of life. I am overwhelmed that He entrusted Noah and Gavin to David and I to raise in His righteousness. On Gavin's 2nd birthday, I am reminded of my commitment to the Lord and to my children to raise them in Truth. Lord, thank you for Gav-Man (as he calls himself!)

*Our camera, that was supposed to have been charged up for the party, unfortunately died after the first picture was taken. I will get the pictures off of my parents' camera ASAP. Until then, enjoy these...

What have we been up to?

For those of you that update your blog more than once a week, I commend you. I love to blog, but have come to the conclusion that if I put up a new post a couple times a month, I am doing good!

My boys keep my active, so here's what we've been up to...

1. We are playing outside as much as we can.
2. They love putting on costumes...this is their version of Zurg's costume. I am too cheap to buy the real thing and I'm encouraging their imagination!
3. These two drum on anything that can handle it. My fake tree is their victim here!
4. I have finally put some things up on our walls. My dad and David worked very hard one weekend to create my collage wall. It isn't perfect yet, but we have a start!
5. My boys took my on a sweet date for Valentine's Day!
6. I made a fancy dinner of beef dip sandwiches and tater tots for my honey on Valentines!
7. We are getting ready for Gavin's 2nd birthday.
8. And of course, we have been spending time with family.
Thank you Lord for such a full and busy life. I am so blessed!!!
