Dear Blog,
I have not forgotten about you. I am however w.a.y. behind in my blogging with um..just about everything. I know I need to change your header and border! I promise I'm going to work on it very very soon. You are going to like being decorated with pictures of Miss C from my new camera! She is A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E! Wait until you see her with her friends at their birthday parties and in her Pinkalicious Halloween costume! Love! Oh, wait you probably already saw her in that. Oh well I'm sure I didn't post them all! Our girl is growing up as you know. People were right when they told me that 3.5-4 is such a hard age. My girl is super sweet as you know because I've written so much about her and her preciousness, but she is also extremely strong willed and loses her "ears" from time to time!
She is my heart and I'm so glad that I was chosen as her mommy and Sam her daddy! (I know, I know, I say this in every other post!) She's funny and loves to dance! She's shy and has the cutest giggle ever! We can't get enough of her!
I am so looking forward to updating you about all of the above + more!
Your Author
P.S. Get some rest! You'll be working hard for me over the next couple of days!

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours! We have so many many things to be thankful for, too many things to even begin to note here! Today I am especially thankful for my little family! My two loves mean the world to me! Celebrating Thanksgiving today with family was a reminder of how precious "family" really is. I so enjoyed today's fun, food, and conversation!

My little girl learning all that she can about Jesus puts a big ole smile on this momma's face! I know that teaching Caroline about Jesus comes first from the home. We need to believe it, live it, so she can see it, believe it, and want to live it too! I love our church family and our children's department especially our children's director, Maegan Bolding, and preschool/Sunday School leader, Andrea Krick. I've loved Ms. Andrea and her sweet husband, Kevin, the moment they took Caroline from our arms on Caroline's first day of SS when she was four months old. Ms. Andrea is the type of person that knows how to make anyone feel special and she certainly has the "motherly" touch of everything, she is by the way, a mother to four precious children. She is one of the most positive persons that I know. I love her! As a parent and a church member, I see how the Kricks are investing in the lives of LBC's children. They are absolutely unbelieveable. Sam and I have a very small role in our church's children's department. It is very miniscule compared to what the Kricks do on a daily/weekly basis for our child and the hundreds of other children that walk through the children's department doors. I'm glad that we get to have a part, to have the opportunity to help or "give back" even in some small small (very small) way. Hopefully Caroline will see us in this role or ministry and know that it will one day be "her job" as a parent too. I'm grateful for The Krick's investment in my child. They are pretty special people and are certainly role models for all young parents! What an example!
