"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

For Daddy!

We miss you Blake and can't wait to see you! We head north in one week!

Here are some pictures from our time with my family.
The kids in their Christmas jammies! Thank you Gigi and Papa Joe!
Watching Polar Express and eating homemade popcorn.
We went to see cousin Max at his Thanksgiving program at school! So fun!

The kids are absolutely loving being with their cousins, aunts and uncles, and Noonie and Papa non-stop. Its been fabulous and certainly taken the edge off of not having our pumpkin of a daddy with us.

It's starting to set in for them though and bedtime is getting harder. Owen keeps asking me to take pictures of him and send them to Blake. So sweet. At night he says, "Mom, will you tell my dad that I really, really love him?" Oh my heart!

Sadie modeling her Chosen shirt! Seriously, look at those eyes and that smile! I could eat her up!

These two are 7 months apart. You couldn't tell it by this picture though! Luke is already 7 months old! How in the world?


Thank you to my family for surrounding us during this time and going out of your way to be with us when it might be easier to go home after work/school. We are beyond blessed by this time together!

Hope you all enjoy the pics and we'll see you soon honey!!!

Precious, precious, precious!! If you and Blake each have a webcam on your laptop ( chris didn't realize he had one on his laptop, but found it after searching) or computer you should set up a skype account. Kylan loves to skype Chris when he is gone on business and my sister at college. Best part is it is free!
