Dinner with friends

Kayden and Nate





Last night, we had a few friends over for playtime and dinner. Nate and Braden are a few of Michael and Kayden's favorites, so time with them is always on their list of things to do. We were blessed to get to spend the evening with them and have their mom join us for dinner. Amanda has been one of the greatest friends to me while I have been here in Alabama. A true mild and meek spirit, ( which I so desperately desire to obtain) a beautiful heart, and a love for the Lord that shines through her smile. She blesses me each time we are together and her gentle voice is always uplifting and encouraging. Everyday I am with her, she brightens my day and brings me to my knees with thankfulness to the Lord for bringing such an amazing friend into my life. A wonderful example to me of what Christ looks like... She lives, breathes, and shows the love of God to all who come near her! Thank you Jesus for blessing me with a friend and true example of what I should strive to be more like! Here are a few of the pictures I shot while our kiddos were playing!

The joy of laughter!

Today was a busy day. With the loss of an hour and the need for sleep, my house was in rare form, especially not in the shape that I would usually allow for visitors. That is if you call 14 children and 8 women visitors. The kids had a great time playing with their friends, and all the friends enjoyed taking every toy out of its original home and finding new places to house them. It was a fun time all around. Tons of coffee, muffins, angel food cake, and laughter; plus a few tantrums... It just wouldn't be the same with out them! Hope you all enjoy the pictures of the sweet children!! Happy Monday everyone!

My fabulous Michael's.... Plural!

My Angel

Rainboot kind of day..

What he does with the bubbles.. At least he has clean hands!

Bubbles, bubbles, bubbles!

His imagination running wild!

I love my Michael and I love my new camera that my sweet hubby, Michael, got for me! I have had a rough couple of days with Michael being in Arizonia, so needless to say, a nice afternoon with bubbles and friends, was just what the doctor ordered! Mike and I headed out early in the morning for a little R&R. He blew soap and I shot a picture of every opportunity that came my way! It was nice to get outside and feel the cool breeze, soak up some sun, and giggle with my little man! it was much needed! Here are a few pictures from my outting outside... I just love me some Michael!
