Parker is 7

Parker,

You are 7! This year you wanted to visit our friends in Santiago del Estero instead of have a party, so that's exactly what we did! You wanted a ninjago cake and that's what you had. You are so special. We love you so much. I hope you know just how much you are loved by us and everyone around you. You're such a good friend and brother. Thank you for making us smile with your funny jokes and silly stories. Happy birthday, bubba!

El Cadillal

SInce summer vacation is almost over, we decided we should take a little trip before the school year starts.

 

I found a lake about 3 hours from us so we thought we'd check it out. It rained our first two days there, so we spent time in our little rental cabin and drove into Tucuman capital to eat and watch a movie.

 

After the rain left we had a couple of nice days!

 

We rode in a boat, went kayacking on the lake, and rode a ski lift to the top of the mountain overlooking the lake!

 

It was wonderful to get awayfor a while.

Oh, and I can't forget that we rode horses and did a bunch of geocaching.

   

Enjoying Summer Vacation

London's 4th birthday

Dear London,

This year we celebrate your 4th birthday! How have you grown so big this year? You've outgrown all your clothes more than 3 times and gone through so many shoes. You love all things girly, twirly, and pink! You and I love painting our nails together. You adore dressing up & then dancing & spinning round and round until you're dizzy.

You make us laugh. A lot. You have a wonderful belly laugh that makes us smile everytime.

Thank you for being such a big helper around the house. We have seen the Lord grow you a lot this year. You have such a sensitive, sweet heart. You pray a lot. You've seen God listen to you and answer you. We pray this next year is just as full of fun, surprises, and love!

Each of the kids had performances for the end of the school year. It was so much fun to see them dress up and learn things about Argentina! Enjoy!

We were so excited to have a vision team from Tennessee come and spend a week here with us. They had time to meet people, learn about life here, the culture, and the beliefs of the people. They also got to know us pretty well, too. We can't wait for the first team to arrive from their church!

1 Year!!!

You are ONE!


With your bright blue eyes, toothy grin, and bleach blonde hair, you make us melt.


You are Jack. Our third child. Our second son. Our happy baby; as long as you're not sick or teething.


You make us happy and have brought us so much joy. You love to goof around, make us laugh, and play lots of games.


We took you to ride on some rides today. You loved the train, but held on for dear life. We know you enjoyed it though, because you cried when daddy took you off.


You loved the horse, too. The more it went around, the more you liked it. However, you only had one expression on your face the whole time. It was pretty cute funny.


We love you so much Boo Bear!! Happy Birthday, buddy!

It's 9 Years

Posted on May 1, 2013 at 12:40 AM Comments comments (0)

Joseph,

   Today. 9 years ago today we made promises to one another. Those promises have held up so far and I am thankful. Amongst other things, I'm thankful for the way that God has blessed our marriage and allowed us to have some of the best years I've ever had. In ways we've talked about before, I know that we have a unique marriage. Things with you happen so easily and effortlessly. We can talk, enjoy, share, and laugh with one another in a way that I thought impossible. I know it's the Lord. All these years, His contant pruning, refining, maintaining, and sanctifying us. It's all made us into the people we are. And we are better because of it. And it's not because of us, but because of Him. He has sustained us. I can only pray that in the many years to come, God will continue to mold us into people more like him. And that through Him, we can remain an example of who Christ is living in and through us. I hope you know how much these last 9 years have meant to me. You're everything to me. I will always be your girl!
I love you.
No tengo palabras para decirte cuanto te amo. Sos la cosa mejor en mi vida, aparte de Dios. Cumpliste todos mis sueños de lo que quería en un esposo. Me llenas con alegría y con mucho amor. Yo te voy a querer el resto de mi vida. Te amo muchiiiiiiisimo, mi amor! Besos. Besos. Besos.


Parker's 6!!

Posted on April 30, 2013 at 11:30 AM Comments comments (0)

Bubba,
We can't believe that you are a big 6 year old! You have been waiting for this birthday and it finally came. You asked me for a superhero birthday, so we did Spider-man. And you were pretty excited!
We started the day by taking Spiderman cupckes to your school to share with your friends.

Then you went home and opened presents. You got Twister from grammy and poppy and some super awesome cowboy boots!

A week later we celebrated with a superhero costume party/ movie night with your
friends from school.

You are still awaiting the day you'll find a loose tooth. You are learning to read and write in Spanish, which is much easier than English. You're adding and subtracting and coloring really well, too. You love anything that has to do with superheroes, dinosaurs, trucks, or your friends. You are a great big brother to Jack. You and him play together so well and you can really make him laugh. You and London love to pretend to be animals together and play I Spy and hide and seek.
We can't wait to see what is in store for you this next year and all the ways that you will grow. I know that God is teaching you lots of new things. We pray that you will continue to grow to love Him and know Him more. We love you, Bubba! Happy Birthday!!
