What a Day!!!

Well, as you can tell from the title, our Saturday was jam packed.  It started off with getting the family up at 6:30Am to go garage selling around town.  There were  a lot of them out yesterday and they all started around 7AM so we wanted to get our early.  We usually go to get things to sell on Ebay which God really blesses us with that, but I think He knew we needed some stuff yesterday for ourselves so we got more for us than we did to sell.  Then we got home around lunch time and I had enough time to eat lunch with the family before I headed off to walmart to finish up some stuff I had to get for the rest of the day.  I went into work around 1PM to get ready for our SLT workshop that I do once a month with my (Student Leadership Team Leaders) and I always enjoy them.  That was from 3-5PM.  Then Amanda had girls Bible study from 5-6PM while I watched the kids for an hour and the teen boys of the youth group put together our new basketball hoop.  Then from 6-8PM we have REFUEL which is our every Saturday youth activity.  That is not all, because from 8-9PM we have PRaise Band practice.  So needless to say, when the day was done (around 10PM) we went to bed and tried to get some sleep for a great day at church.

Beyond all the business of yesterday, our kids sure do know how to fill the day with laughter.  In this video, AJ is having  a blast.  She is sitting up on her own, with a few falls here and there, and she is always making so much noise.  She is defiantly going to be a  singer like her mom.  She makes so much noise that she makes herself cough.  Then, (at the time it was not funny, but after watching the video we had to laugh) while we were practicing our Praise Band, our boys decided to have some fun too.  I didn't put the whole video of the practice on it, just the part where the boys are having their fun.  I wanted to see what we sounded like after only 2 weeks of practice, (actually only 2 times) so we decided to tape it.  Watch the video to see who decides to join this little practice of ours.  Needless to say, they are not from our planet :)

Hungry AJ

This past weekend Amanda started a Bible study with our teenage girls and they are talking about "Being Hungry for God."  So Amanda had taken some video footage of AJ during the week of her eating and the different reactions she will do if you hold her food from her and stuff.  Anyways, she gave me the footage and I put together a little video for her Bible study with the girls and it turned out really funny so I wanted to post it on our blog.  ENJOY!

Sittin' Pretty


A.J. crawled for the first time last night and sits up on her own now. She's also cutting in at least two teeth. It's so sad to see her getting so big but it's so fun too. Pretty soon we're gonna have to get the gates out 'cause she'll be everywhere!

Tonight we're all going to a Savannah Sand Gnats game with the youth group. Then tomorrow we're raking some people's yards, have girls' Bible study, youth group and then praise band practice! It makes me tired just thinking about it. However, I'm encouraged in the thought that it is all work for my Savior and I wouldn't trade it for anything. A thought that I came across was this...the Christian life takes blood, sweat and tears. It takes His blood, our sweat and both of our tears. I thought that was good.

Crawlin' and Drummin'



When I was gone last weekend Nick thought AJ might crawl for the first time. This is the video of her attempting to crawl.

We have also had quite the musical family. Nick bought a new drum set and the boys have been playing on the old one. Bryson has really taken an interest to it. Needless to say we do not have a quiet house :)! On a side note, please pray for us as we're trying to put this praise band together. We really don't know how it's done but feel this is a direction God is taking us. We're excited but could really use the prayer!
Bryson likes to take showers now so Zeke and AJ take baths together....
