"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

Homeless and loving it!

Oh my word!! We closed on our house last week, moved out the week before and have been living with our parents ever since. We are loving all of this sweet time with our families before we move. Thank you all for so much quality time. The kids doing fireworks (snapits) and they LOVED them. Owen was telling me he was making fire.

All 11 grandkids on my side of the family.
Sadie loves the pool!

Seriously. Look at my lil chocolate baby in pink!! Cannot get enough of her!

Look at those teef! This is one happy girl. And she loves the water too.

Sadie fell asleep while I was putting her twists and beads in. Sleeping beauty

Owen and Sutton at Emme's party.

For reals. Could my kids be anymore adorable? I know I am biased, but come on.

Sissy loves sweets!!!

And balloons! She was a hoot batting at this.

So a part of becoming homeless was packing our stuff in the POD for Atlanta which included us eating meals on the floor.

We've also loved some precious precious time with Emery's birthfather. I have TONS of pictures and what a treasure they are and will be for Emme as she grows. This is one of my favorites. Today we saw him for the last time before we head to Atlanta. It was hard to say good-bye, but I got one of the recordable books and it was so cool to have his voice for Emme to hear over the next year.

Look at her!!! She owns the place, huh? This was at the nursing home where we met her paternal grandma for the first time...her namesake!

Emery eating doughnuts for her birthday!
