One of the Many Reasons I Love My Husband

He's never too busy to stop what he's doing to read to one of his girls.

Snow, Snow, Snow, Snow!

How wonderful to finally have snow -- in the merry month of March, no less -- the day before Jaycie's spring break! Our eldest and bravest loved sledding down the front yard hill; our youngest loved eating the snowballs her daddy made. After about an hour of snowy fun, the girls stripped off their damp duds and warmed their chapped cheeks (both sets) in a nice warm tub. Fun, fun, fun, fun!

A Daddy Sandwich Is Easy To Make...

...all that you do is simply take
two hyper girls,
a supine Dad,
pile them up,
smash them down,
and there you go!

One Year Shy of a Decade - No Way!

I can hardly believe that 9 sweet years ago Jaycie Ann Fowlkes entered our lives. She has been such a wonder to watch, from her early little squirms and coos to her current crazy dance moves and pre-adolescent insights. I am so proud of her, proud that she is compassionate, funny, smart, and creative. I love her sense of individual expression. I am amazed at how her humor mimics her dad's. It warms my heart when her heart softens following moments of (ahem) redirection. Watching her sing songs of praise, hearing her pray, and observing her efforts to live God's way are some of my proudest moments. Thank you, Lord, for our delightful, original, amazing Jaycie.
