Katie's Many Loves

Katie loves to sit in Rosalyn's toddler bed and play....

She loves to swing outside and feel the wind blow her hair....

To rock in her rocking chair....

And to push the bike.

This is one of her favorite faces to make...It's one that she learned at Pop's birthday party, which is where she also got the balloon that has become a fun, fun toy for her.

Nate's Busy Life

I'm going to take time today to let everyone know what Nate is doing. Some of you have emailed and asked so I thought I could take the spotlight off the girls for today and put it on Nate!

  • Nate is currently in his 4th year of seminary and it's his last year! He's working on his Masters of Divinity with an emphasis in Counseling. He is the President of Student Body this year, against his better judgement.
  • He is the Christian Education Intern at First Presbyterian Church in Jackson. He gets to teach Sunday School each week, every quarter with a new class, which he loves to do. On Wednesday nights, he leads a discipleship group through the book Peacemakers for Families. We've just started this last week but the group seems great and we're excited about it.
  • As another part time job, Nate writes for an online magazine. He writes lots of book reviews and some cutural critiques. We'd love for you all to go to the site and check it out. It's and his latest book review is at There's alot of wonderful men that write for this magazine.

So as you can tell, he is a busy man. But he really enjoys everything he does. Teaching, writing, and learning.....what better way to describe the things that Nate loves!

Cute Pics of Katie!!

Katie is 11 months old today!! She has gotten so big so fast. This morning she woke up with her first 2 teeth! We didn't think that they ever come in. She has been fussy for so long. Time has really gone by fast with the second child!

Visiting Great-Grandmother

I thought this pic was adorable. This is my (Christy's) grandmother who has Alzheimer's and does not talk at all. She is such a dear lady and I'm so thankful that my children have the chance to know her.

Rosalyn is 3!!

Rosalyn celebrated her 3rd birthday yesterday! I can not believe she is already 3. She had a great time at her party. We invited a few friends and they all colored, fingerpainted, and had fun with a bubble machine.
