"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

Less Words on Wednesday

You know I can't really do a wordless post.I was making dinner and turned around to find Sadie in the trash can. (She is saying "cheese" here). Let me explain. We came without Sadie's stroller for her babies. She has taken to this trash can and started pushing all her stuff around in it. It also works as a push walker for Emme. Man kids are so creative! When I asked for another smile, she picked her nose. Nice lovie.
Ahhh, a picture is worth a thousand words. This is Cooper's fort he built (also a castle and a pirate ship). Sadie's new pose...we aren't sure what it is, but it cracks us up. And Emme at the "toy box".
Playing in the snow at our apartment. Look close and you will notice Cooper leading Sadie...he is so sweet with her...most of the time ;o)
Holding her hand to help her in the snow.

Love that grin

We had so much fun painting the snow! Thanks Courtney for the great idea. I just happened to bring our food coloring and was able to scrounge around for some spray bottles.

And a lil hot chocolate to warm up!

Last night we had a rough, rough nite sleeping. Sleeping here altogether has been rough, but last night topped it all. Thank Jesus that the kids were in wonderful moods and we had a good day at school and lots of outside play. And thank you to all of you on facebook that prayed for and encouraged me.

Our day took a turn early afternoon when we learned that Blake's grandfather died. We are so saddened to have lost such an incredible man, but so glad that he is no longer sick and is walking with Jesus tonight. I am beyond heartbroken that I cannot fly home for the funeral. We would have to pay $2K for 5 flights and that certainly isn't in our budget. I can't say that I am happy to be here today. But I am thankful that Blake will be able to go home to be with our family.
