II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Birthday's and School

August 2nd was my mom's 59th b-day. She had been out of town and when she got home, we surprised her with a little party. Here she is opening her gifts, and then one of her sitting out on the patio enjoying the little gazebo that my dad got for her while she was gone. (bummer, you can't see it though in this picture!)

Here is one of me stealing a kiss from my hunky hubby at the party!

Yesterday was the kids first day of school. I decided to start taking a picture of them by this bench every year so I can try to compare and see how much they've grown. I just think they are the cutest kids! I let them pick whatever they wanted to wear on the first day. Grant picked out his favorite shirt rather than wearing any of his new school clothes. Just like a guy to go for his most worn and comfortable shirt than his most new and stylish! I just noticed that he is wearing the same shirt in those pictures of my mom's birthday! HA HA--SEE! I told you it is his favorite shirt (that he's had for over a year!)

Brooklyn found those WILD boots at Journey's Kidz and HAD to have them. They were a splurge for sure...but they are SOOO HER that I couldn't resist. Her style these days is LOUD. She told me when we were talking about buying school clothes, "Mom, I don't want to look all sweet and cute--I want clothes that go BAM!" Ha ha---ohh my girl! Sure enough when I walked her into school yesterday, about 4-5 people stopped us to ask about her boots! (which she LOVED). I don't know if you can tell from the picture but they are black sequined!
