Wait and See

I have been inspired. I love the Christian music of Brandon Heath. There is something about his words that get me so inspired and give me the faith to lean on God with all of my heart.

Some of the lyrics of "Wait and See" are some of my favorites:
There is hope, for me yet. Because God, won't forget, All the plans He's made for me. I have to wait and see. He's not finished with me yet.

That is the attitude that we should always have! Because we all stumble and fall. But He is not finished with us until we are gone from this earth. And then, sometimes still the life we led continues to impact others. I think of my Pepaw and Uncle T. The people that knew them will ALWAYS remember what kind of people they were. They aren't easy to forget.

Moving on. Last Friday we went to Arkadelphia and met up with our good friends (might as well be family), Karen, Sharon, Les, and Khennedy. We went out to the dam and played at the park there. It was good times!

Tiny Butt's outfit is a 12 month! She is almost 27 months old!

We- are -family, I got all my sistas with me.

Livi taking the plunge.

Ms Karen V taking the same plunge but for her it was more like a plummit.

The beautiful Miss Khennedy. Better watch out Sharon, she's going to have boys all over her soon. ;o) Ha

I love you Boo. So glad you've been able to be with us for a whole two months!

Sharon got stuck and Karen and I thought it was hilarious! We are laughing (and I obviously was snapping pictures) but Alex ran over to help her up before I could get a good one.


We had a great time. Thanks Arkadoo family for entertaining us. We hope to see you more often *wink wink.

There hasn't been too much else going on around here except for Olivia's intensifying 2 year old bad mood. Lol. She drops her head and stomps off if she doesn't want to do what you told her to. She yells "NO" at adults. She throws toys at her sisters. The other day Alex was watching the kids and he said that he thought Olivia said she wanted a "cup". So he fixed her a sippy and when he handed it to her she dropped her head and threw the cup. He said, " apparently that's not what she said she wanted." She's rotten. But we love her...most of the time. Her favorite candy is M-n-M's. We are working on colors. Right now everything is "pink". She puts concepts together more every day and says more two word sentences.
Makayla is too funny. She is doing better in gymnastics. She is very excited about going to Kindergarten in the fall and is ready to swim this summer!
Abigail is learning about plants and understands what roots are for and what it takes for plants to grow. She is also excelling in gymnastics.
I couldn't ask for better kids. They are all good girls and we are thankful every day for them.

The pics are so cute! I love the last one. Brandon Heath is such an amazing singer and songwriter...not my favorite in concert, but the songs are awesome!
