"The LORD your God is with you, He is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you,
He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing. "

Princess Tea Party

Audrey had her 5th Birthday party planned in her head all year long. She wanted a 'princess beauty tea party', so of course that is what she got for her special celebration day!

She was so excited to get dressed up and get her fingernails painted and make-up done!

Love the hat, Peyton!

Ainsley had a BLAST! Dressing up and putting jewelry on is definitely her kind of thing!

Sweet friend, Mackenzie


Kinsey and Mandy

Best friends!

Silly girls!

Daddy had a hard time with his princess turning 5.

So excited to be 5!!

She got so many wonderful presents from her gracious friends and family!

Love this pic of Leslie and Ella!

Aunt Nedra, Hallie and Deanna came. Always fun to see them!

Happy Birthday to our Audrey! You have brought so much joy to our lives and we love you so much! Such a fun and memorable party day!

Audrey is 5!!

Our little princess is 5 today! I can't believe it!

She is beautiful, animated, tenderhearted, thoughtful and a little mommy to everyone in our house!

She tells us all the time that when she grows up, she wants to be a mommy. She is going to be amazing!

Her new bike from Daddy and Mommy. :)

About a month before her birthday, she began asking if she could get her ears pierced for her birthday. We told her that if she still wanted to do it by her birthday, she could. (TOTALLY thinking she would forget or we could talk her out of it before the day came. Which is also why we bought her the bike. :) Well, here she is about to get her ears pierced! ((She of course would let it go or be talked out of it!)

She definitely cried, but was so determined the tears didn't last long. Brave girl!

Big brother was there to support her. Love this pic!

I am one proud Mom! I was an emotional wreck today! (Always get that way on birthdays. My baby girl is 5!! Time is flying!)

Love my boy, too!

Lunch with Daddy at Panera.

And an after dinner "party" at our favorite yogurt place with the Adkins.

It was a perfect day for our princess. Audrey, you are a JOY and we love you so much!!

Law of LOVE

My friend Megan and I committed to go to all of Beth Moore's teaching series this winter/spring. A HUGE thank you to our wonderful husbands for giving us this much needed time of worship and teaching! Beth taught over the book of Deuteronomy  and to say it was an amazing and nourishing time doesn't even feel like it does those weeks justice. 

Loved the worship, being anonymous and great time with one of my very best friends!

This is an awful picture, but it was also so wonderful going with new and old friends throughout the weeks! The Lord truly spoke to my heart though this series and I am so thankful to have such an amazing resource in my town. Houston is finally starting to feel a little like home. :)

We love going to Waco to visit Papa and Grandma and our friends! Here are some pics from our short visit:

Dax and Kensie!

8 Monkeys on a couch at Kylie's house. :)

Kylie and Ann (with baby boy on the way!) Love these two precious friends! It was so great spending time with both of them!

These two have been buds since birth. Love watching them play so naturally together even though they don't get to see each other that often.

Best Friends! (Just like their Mama's!)

We stopped by to visit JG and Big T. Love them so much!

They gave Audrey some early birthday presents. :)

And of course we spent time with Papa and Grandma! They took us to the Mayborn Museum and the kids had a blast!!
