Please Pray for the Chapman Family

Please pray for the family of Steven Curtis Chapman. This tragic event is a reminder that this world is not our home and our only hope is in the Lord.

2 Corinthians 4:16,18 So we're not giving up. How could we! Even though on the outside it often looks like things are falling apart on us, on the inside, where God is making new life, not a day goes by without his unfolding grace...There's far more here than meets the eye. The things we see now are here today, gone tomorrow. But the things we can't see now will last forever.

A Day of Firsts for Hannah

Hannah has had a pretty exciting day. The day began at 4 am when she came in and announced that she had lost her first tooth. Why that happened at 4 am is something we do not know, but she was thrilled. She has been wanting to lose her tooth ever since some other kids in her class started losing their teeth. Rich told her that maybe the tooth fairy came by to see if she had lost it yet and since she hadn't she nudged it a little bit so Hannah could lose her tooth and finally put it under her pillow. (I thought that was pretty creative!)

We also went shopping today and at the end of our shopping trip I decided to see if I could stop and get a pedicure. I rarely get pedicures but thought that it might be fun to do that with Hannah. So, we both had our toenails painted. Hannah kept saying "oooh....fancy." She even get a flower painted on her big toe. Very Fancy!!!

This one is for the girls!

We are wrapping up a fun weekend here in Woodway, Texas! My mom, sister, Hannah and I went to the 9th Annual Mother Daughter Weekend at the Woodway Arboretum. Although it was the 9th year for the event, it was the first year we have ever attended. It was a very fun event. We ate finger foods, drank punch and had a good time. I am surprised that Hannah does not have vertigo right now because she kept spinning around in her dress.

Here's a great tip for people with small children that they had at the tea. They had a basket with paper, clothes pins and pipecleaners on the tables. The little girls could use the pipecleaners and tissue paper to make flowers. They could also use the paper and clothes pins to make butterflies. It was amazing how the little girls use those supplies to stay entertained.
