"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

So slow...

Well, I am way behind the rest of the world and have just finished the book The Shack.

I know.
Can you believe it? One would have thought that I would have just moved on to the newest popular book, but my Gigi let me borrow it about a year ago and I stuck it in our stuff in case I had the chance to read it.

So, when Blake told me he had to take the laptop with him for his interview this weekend, I told him I was glad because I would have no reason to not read the book.

So Saturday I started and finished it and I hope I am forever changed. No wonder so many of you raved about it. What a beautiful and clear picture it paints of our Savior.
I laughed and cried and was moved at the thought that all our God wants is for us to relish in the relationship and love between the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
So today I am stuck in these thoughts and will just leave you with some sweet pictures of the kids!

Having a(nother) movie night! How cute are they with their sleeping bags!
Two things here: Guess who has started screaming again? And, look at her cute new shirt that Gigi got her! Owen spent Sunday afternoon skiing on actual slopes with Blake! He did greens and one blue and was a bit more scared than at the bunny slope...where they promptly returned!!!

Not sure what is worse: that they are eating off of that dirty chunk of ice, or that I am taking a pic of it and not removing it from their grip!Cooper talking to his daddy, who had just met and talked with his hero DeMarco Murray in the Denver airport. How cool is that?

I can tell by the look on Sadie's face that she is probably screaming again because she is working on all those teeth. She does look adorable in her Ski Bunny shirt and those boots! I miss you all so much and can't wait to come back in just little over a week to bring you home!

You are a great mom, but is it possible that Sadie's fingers were stuck in the drawer??? I am just sayin'
