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.

Guess who's turning 1 today?

Yes...it's my little rat-eater! ha ha She was born on 9-30-08, so she's ONE today!
By the way...I want to clear up a VERY IMPORTANT FACT about that previous story. The rat was NOT in our house until she brought it in from outside. We have a cat that hangs around our house outside (we feed it, but it's not really "ours"). I'm pretty sure the cat had caught the rat, eaten its head off and that is when Kinley intercepted it. And Kate, yes..she is up to date on all her shots! I thought of that too!

On Monday, one of Matt's hunting buddies called to see if he wanted to go put up their deer stands and put out some deer corn. They decided to let Grant go with them (what a TREAT!) Here are my handsome men before they left!
And one of Grant alone. Brooklyn insisted I take another picture of him because he "looked SO cute" (she said!) Wow...my daughter being NICE to my son? It's a MIRACLE! :o)
And then I couldn't pass up flipping the camera around and taking one of my pretty girl too! We had straightened her hair that day for school picture day! Wow--it's getting long!
After the boys left, we decided to make sugar cookies and actually roll out the dough, make shapes, ice and sprinkle them! Whew! That was a job...but we had fun and MAN they were yummy!

Love the pictures. Kinley is adorable in her hat, your boys are so handsome and Brooklyn's straight hair is rad!! She looks so much older with it like that.
