TAG...I'm IT! So... I got tagged by my friend April McCarty Nelson:) Here are the rules to the game...
1. Grab the book closest to you.
2. Open to page 123, go down to the fourth sentence
3. Post the text of the following three sentences
.4. Name the author and book title.
5. Tag three other people to do the same
"We know that everything turned out all right. But what did Mary and Martha think at the time? What did the disciples think? What do we do when God doesn't act or move the way we think he should?
Ironically this book has been one of my favorite books ( I don't read very often though) and it has taken me forever to finish. It is called "Having a Mary Heart in a Martha world" by Joanna Weaver. It is the perfect book for encouragement the back title reads: An invitation for every woman who's ever felt she isn't godly enough, isn't loving enough, isn't doing enough. Sounds typical of a mom, young or old, right???
I now tag: Kat (who reads a lot so it shoud be interesting), KatieKate (who is so creative- who knows what she is reading), and Kelly Harrell (who is very wise there is no telling what we will learn)

Sweet Girl

Mary Elizabeth and Mackey Elizabeth
Today we officially smiled for the camera..melted my heart. She went for her first play date to Mary Elizabeth Master's house. Mary is just 6 weeks younger. It is so nice that now she officially weighs 9lbs and can wear one more different outfit. Here she is cheesing it up before we headed to church for "Mom Matters".

Bad Hair Day

This is Paxton every morning...he always has crazy hair. I guess it goes along with his crazy fun loving personality. I am thinking that we may have to start hair spraying no matter how hard we try those pieces refuse to be settled.

Need I say More...

Need I say more...could my camera have caught any more than this...

What two best friends do when no one is looking...or at least they think no one.

Lazy Days

Paxton getting a hair-do from Jackson...Brant is supervising!! SCARY
Poor Lainey!! Lots of trouble on the couch..
What was going to be a lazy afternoon turned into a party a Brookhollow circle...7 moms and 8 children!! It was chaotic but also very fun to hang out with such great friends. Here are some snapshots...

Mama Emilia's

Valentine's Night a group of 20 of us from Sunday school went to a really nice restaurant in downtown McKinney. We were all dressed nice and had a great evening! I am not sure that SueSue and GrandPat will ever volunteer to keep Mackey again...lets just say she cried the whole time.

This one is for you Erika and Jessica!

(Ashley, Jessica, Me, Erika, and Tessa)
(Jason, J.T., Danny, Rusty, and Tab)
Rusty and I are so blessed! We have found a group of friends that is fun to hang out with but also encouraging in our walks with Christ. We started a small group bible study in Octish and have held each other accountable every Sunday night. From Canton trips (where money was spent decorating each others houses), to X Box games, and good food every week together as we fellowship. God has placed these 4 other couples in our lives to build life long friendships. We were all talking the other day and were saying "you know how your parents all had a group of friends they were close too"...the conclusion is that we are making those friendships now. We know that we are blessed also I know that all you girls are checking this and I want you to know that I feel so lucky to have you as friends.

The title is because Jessica and Erika have wanted to make the blog for weeks! You are there girls: you have MADE the blog...

Mackey at 2 months! Yesterday was my first day back to work and her first day to go to Mrs. Shelley's (the day care). She did really well and did not get kicked out from crying so much...and that is exciting. She actually has started to figure things out and is much more relaxed. Here is the latest close up.

Texas Weather

Last week WINTER came to town. Rusty was out of town all week and Thursday evening we had plans to leave the house a head over to our friends the Rackers House....this all changed at 4:30 when it started snowing and did not let up until 7:30. It was so beautiful! Everyone in our neighborhood except for us had beautiful white yards. Ours was brown dirt, yes that's right we still have no GRASS...hopefully this weekend!!
