"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do, I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do." -Edward Everett Hale

Twelve Weeks

I'm 0 for 3 with babies and pacifiers. We've had flat out refusal to casual interest, but never enough to be useful. 

But at twelve weeks, Declan knows when he needs comforting it's best to have something on hand at all times...

A Precarious Pull

The tooth fairy stopped by last night...

We lost our first tooth, but it may not be who you think...


Not her. 

Our little Lila had a loose tooth appear a couple of weeks ago. It was still holding on pretty well and we were in no hurry to force it out. Unfortunately, a teacher's aide felt differently, took Lila to the bathroom and pulled the tooth at school. 

Inappropriate as it was, the tooth fairy was alerted, and there was one happy girl this morning. Before breakfast she even thanked God for the tooth fairy's visit.

One down, 99 or so to go. I hope the tooth fairy is saving up for this clan.

Resurrection Sunday

What better way to end spring break than celebrating the resurrection of our Lord and Savior?

An early start for worship...


Then to Bowling Green for a beautiful afternoon...
 

Declan's first Easter...


Levi's favorite thing...


Sisters...


The ever popular egg hunt...





A day filled with food, family and fun. 

Though nothing compares to the indescribable gift given to us through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ.

There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain;
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory,
Sin's curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His and He is mine—
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.
-In Christ Alone

Final Four Saturday

 And now a picture for this edition of Sentimental Saturday...

Baby Levi ready for the Final Four in 2011...


And today with his brothers...


Baby Declan, wearing the same shirt, hoping for a different outcome in 2015.

He's not superstitious...

Eleven Weeks

This week Declan has slept through everything from parks to play dates, bouncing to building bears.

But our Good Friday was spent at BoBo and BeBe's house and he was wide awake for that adventure...


Eleven weeks and counting...

Picnic in the Park

When Levi isn't asking to go to Monkey Joe's, he's requesting to walk to the park. And have a picnic. I've had to disappoint him several times this winter. 

But not today. We packed up our picnic on this perfect spring day and put on our walking shoes. 

Long legs, short legs, feet that skip and feet that drag, they all managed to make the two mile trek. 

No wagons on this trip...


One exception was made...


Absolutely famished...


Time for play but don't forget...


We still have to walk home.
