These pictures are just in case you forgot what Adam and I look like. As I mentioned in the post earlier today, the pictures are from my phone, so that is why the quality is poorer than usual. The picture of Adam was taken when he was speaking at the Aldersgate Academy Junior/Senior Banquet on Friday night. He did a great job and the kids loved it! The picture of me was taken (actually to send to my mom) on the way to the banquet. Mom made my dress for Sarah Ann's wedding several years ago. I'm glad it still fit! :)
Aubrey picked this flower for me. :)
She now loves for her hair to be "pretty" and asks for it almost immediately when she wakes up in the morning!
All dressed up and ready to Burger King! ha
Next to the GBS fountain. She smiled when I said, "say daddy!"

Would you check out that face?!

Tryin out a new chair at Meijer.
Her first penny horse ride! She loved it!


What a mouth! :)

Enjoyin an ice cream cone with daddy.

A post with no pics? Gasp!

Ok, ok...I know it's boring to just read words and see no pictures, but I just wanted to let you know that we are still alive and doing well. :) Things have been super busy around here and this week will be no exception. With IHC and VIP day coming up, there will be no rest for the weary! I am really looking forward to seeing my family at IHC, which is actually the main reason I'm going. I'm sure I'll see many other people that I haven't seen in a long time and that will be fun as well. With not being there the past 2 years due to living out of the country, lots has changed for us!

We are doing well. Adam traveled with the guys quartet yesterday and also had to sing lead for them. It was quite the time, from what I hear. Anyway, we were glad to have him back last night and welcomed him with warm chocolate chip cookies! Not sure he ate any of them, but at least they were there and the house smelled good. :) This is going to be a super busy week for him with VIP day on Friday. If you think of it, say a prayer for him! I know he'd appreciate it!

Aubrey is growing by leaps and bounds. It's crazy the difference a month can make! She's talking all the time and saying 3 and 4 words at a time. Consistently when I sneeze (which is a lot this time of year!) she immediately responds with, "Bless you, mommy!" She is at such a fun stage of life and many times I look at her and ask her not to grow up so quickly! I know this can be a hard stage with all the learning that is being done, but nonetheless, fun! She is generally well mannered and is pleasant to have around. I'm still thankful that God chose me to be her mommy! She loves playing outside (I think she could practically live out there!!), playing in the sand, hitting the tree with sticks, hiding out under the deck, dropping rocks, etc. If it's outside, she's game! She still has her love for reading, for which I'm very thankful. That has been a lifesaver many times...stick her in her crib with a pile of books and she's good to go for a while. She loves playing with her friends and hates it when people leave. It's always a sad time for her. BabyO is among her favorites. She talks about her all the time. I even heard her once at 4am in a sing-song voice saying "babyO." At least she went back to sleep on her own and I didn't have to get up!

I am still babysitting, but now only 3 days a week. Olivia (babyo) is learning to walk and is cutting teeth. What a stage! I'm also still trying to get our apartment organized and home-like. I know we've been here since July, but...we're still working at it. Some days I'll feel really motivated and get lots done and other days I just want to be outside! :)

I'm sorry I don't have any pictures to post right now...I've taken some, but they're all on my phone and not the camera. Maybe I should just email them to myself and then they can be on here too. We'll see!

Hope you have a blessed week!
