Courtney and I at the shower

WOW- where are the days going? I intended to post yesterday, but it turned out to be a very busy day for Tallon and I. The most exciting part though, was last night- Several girls in our small group through Tess a Baby Shower. It was soo sweet and Tess received so many wonderful gifts- from diapers to clothes to Fun Girly bath towels and sweet monogrammed bibs, burp cloths and blankets to a precious framed 4D pic of Tess with a verse- what a treasure!
We also received our first "girly" book- called Ballerina's. Tallon and I read it to Tess this morning!! Thank you to all our sweet friends for your generosity and kindness!! I remember moving from Dallas and thinking that we would never find friends like we had there, well- we have not replaced our friends from Dallas- they will always hold a special place in our heart and I am thankful for the memories with them, but as I looked around the room last night- I was blown away by the friends God has provided here in SC for us- friends who love us and love our children, friends who desire to raise their children to Know God, Love Him and Serve Him- what a blessing!

I have evidently become too "dependent" on my sister-in-law for pictures and since she was not able to come last night- this is the only picture I have. But Jennie took some pictures as well as several others so once I get ahold of them- I will post them on here! I had wanted to get a picture of my mom and mother-in-law who were both able to be there last night- but I did not get one. I did manage to get Reeves to take a picture of my mom and I After the shower last night at our house!

In Tallon news- he and Daddy finally decided it was cold enough to build a fire... and build a fire they did! Here are my proud men!We are working on "thumbs up" with Tallon ( for some reason, he always holds up his pointer)

This picture is REALLY poor quality but I love this little boy's cheesy grin and he actually did get his "thumb up" in this picture!

Today, Reeves had his 2 upper wisdom teeth removed- I wanted to take a picture and post it- but he won't let me. Let's just say... he handles pain a whole lot better than I do and it has actually not been too bad at all. He was the first case this AM so we were home by 9:45 so I cleaned the downstairs and He has rested all day. Kinda nice to be at home for a change!!

Hope it gets cold enough this weekend for a fire, I think your fire pictures have inspired me to light our first fire...just wish we had COUCHES TO SIT ON to enjoy it! :)
