Back to Blogging.....

So... lots of things have happened since the last post apparently! :)  John Parson was born and is now TWO years old and full of energy.  Our lives were changed and hearts were filled even more with his birth.  He is such a sweet child and makes us smile daily.  Gavin and Laney are great with him and he loves them sooo much.  I may try to go back and add some older pics but there is no way I can make up the last two years in blog posts so I'll just start from here and move forward for the most part.  In April we went to Disney for the 2nd time.  It was a blast!  I guess I'll start off with the Disney Post!  This Disney trip we got Dot Dot to tag along. It was lots of fun and she rode all the rides with Jason. Gavin and Laney got dressed up like a pirate and a mermaid for the day and John Parson got his very 1st hair cut at Harmony Barber Shop at the Magic Kingdom.  This Disney trip was a blast. Lots of memories made! Cant wait for the next one!   Glad to be back blogging.  Hoping this will be a nice scrapbook thing for the kids to look back on one of these days....

Finger Painting Fun!

Gavin and Laney have been asking if they could do some painting so my first thought was finger painting would be fun.. Thank goodness I decided to let them do this outside on the front porch instead of in the house. I knew that this would be messy hence the venture to the front porch, but I NEVER knew it would turn out like this.

LESSON LEARNED: Never turn your back on a child with paint because things will get messy!

A Day At The Creek

We haven't done very much this summer.. well what I mean is we haven't been on a vacation, but we have done many fun (inexpensive) things and going to the creek was one!
We found a nice, quiet spot on the creek for the kids to enjoy. This is the first time that they have both been to the creek and really enjoyed it. We tried taking them last summer, but sand was just something that really bothered Laney at that age. This summer was great! I was able to sit in a lounge chair and get some sun while they played in the ankle deep water. We all had a blast and I hope this "secret" spot is somewhere we can continue to go every summer!

Uncle Jesse Got Married! finally :)

Here is an adorable picture I took of the kiddos at Uncle Jesse and Aunt Ashley's wedding..

Gavin was the ring bearer and looked sharp in his tux! He thought he was a stud and didn't want to take it off. The wedding and reception were both beautiful and we had a great time!

Here is a picture of Uncle Jesse right before the big "I DO" and an adorable pic of Gavin and Papaw Johnny in their tuxes!

Congrats Uncle Jesse and Aunt Ashley!

Or if you would be interested in donating please let me know. Just starting to get this in the works so any advice or help would be greatly appreciated! -Jenny

My heart is broken this morning! Many of you know about Emily Barber... she was diagnosed with cancer about a year ago. She has been in remission for about 6 months now and yesterday found out that she now has a tumor on her spine. I'm not going to go into all the details because I don't want to get any of them incorrect. Please visit her webpage at for all the information and details.
Her mother posts updates fairly regular about her situation.
Emily is a special little girl to me. She has been one of Gavin's buddies at Easthaven for a while now. He talks about her regularly and has been very concerned about her being sick.
It just breaks my heart for her to have to deal with this pain! Please take some time out of your schedule today and lift this family and Emily up to the Lord. Only HE can heal her and ease her pain! They need your prayers today and in the days to come!

**after posting this I went over to check on baby Stellan today and how perfect for Angie to post these verses: (I just thought they were fitting for this too!)
"Because he loves me," says the Lord, "I will answer him;
I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation...
Psalm 91:14-16
