Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

Look Ma

No Training Wheels!!!  Go-C-Go!
Plus, celebrating 11 years... a nice dinner date with no kids!

Do I Look Tired?

Because I am.  At least, I was on this Friday night trip to the Pumpkin Patch.  With 3 little ones, the days and weeks are flying by and I am exhausted by the end.  But I wouldn't trade it for anything.  Being tired never felt so good.

other happenings

C and SJ are taking ballet from Ms. Shelley.  Ms. Shelley says Clara is doing really well... who knew that two ungraceful parents could make a child with some talent for dance!?!  
Here is SJ all dressed for her first class.
She likes to practice at home.  "Point-fwex (flex)-point-fwex"

Congrats to Greg on finishing a marathon... 26.2 miles on trails.  It was a crazy day and we were so sorry that we missed his finish, but are proud of him.  Here are the girls giving him a good luck kiss before the race.
 and cheering him on at mile 9

Topsail Island 9/12

Our annual (sometimes biannual) trip to Topsail Island

 This time with baby S along
 My parents joined us
We had hoped Greg's would be able to, as well, but it didn't work out.
We were lucky to have some friends...

 and beloved family fill up the extra room
 we had a wonderful, relaxing vacation and made lots of memories

almost 6 week old sweetness

Photos by the lovely and talented Toni Walker.  When baby S grows up I will tell her that Ms. Toni saved her from the 3rd child no- baby- picture syndrome.  Photos taken 9/4/12
C and SJ have made up their own nickname for Baby S.  They call her "Silv."  It sounded strange, at first, but now we think it is pretty sweet.

When SJ hears her cry, she comes running... "Don't worry, baby, I'll save you."
Her favorite song to sing to her is "Old MacDonald."
 Often out of nowhere she says to me "Mom!  Silv is bery calm, today!"
 I overheard C trying to comfort her, one time.  "Don't worry, baby, God will bless you." - funny and cute
Baby S's first real smile was for C... S loves the girls, and they love to make her coo and smile.

She is as sweet as can be and we love having her in our family.

Silvie's blessing day

catching up... I'm more than a few weeks behind on blogging.  Here are photos from baby S's blessing day, September 9th 2012.
