still here

We are still here. Last week just ended up being a little crazy. I have so many things I wanted to tell you about but I never could find time to sit down at the computer. So…I had to take a little unplanned blog break. But I’m back now. And somehow I have to catch you up on what has been happening around here. For now…a quick little rundown will have to do…

I caved and Griffin got his first haircut. It was quite the ordeal. But hopefully he won’t be confused for a girl anymore.

My baby turned one! We started the day off with sprinkle pancakes for breakfast. He was a fan.

We had two birthday parties over the weekend. Griffin’s first birthday and my little brother’s birthday too!

My baby brother got engaged!! Congrats Owen and Morgan! So excited for you!

Joel and I went to the Hillsong Live concert. So good. There is just something awesome about singing praise to Jesus alongside so many people.

Family pictures were tonight. I can’t wait to see them. I’m sure the boys will look adorable…I just hope I do too! šŸ™‚

And my sister is going to have her baby any day now…at least she hopes it is any day. Can’t wait!!

I told you we’ve been busy!

More details to come soon…

This is totally unrelated to last week, but too good not to share. My brother-in-law sent me this YouTube video today. Have you heard this song?

God you are my God. Glorious. Victorious.

I want to start this week with His praise on my heart. How about you?
