Friends are FUN!

Today was a day filled with friends!  These kinds of days are my favorite! :)

The day started with a little drive to Sherwood to pick up Leyla, so that she could spend the day with us while her mommy got things at home in order.  They just moved and aside from not having much time to play lately, her mommy was busy trying to get things arranged in the new house and everything done at the old house, so we landed a hand. ;)

Leyla and Eli love each other!  They are such a joy to watch together.  :)

We then headed to CARC to have some fun with one of our playgroups.  It was SO crowded today (probably because of the rain), but we had fun, despite the overwhelming crowd. Leyla and Eli spent most of their time there eating snacks! LOL








After we left CARC, it was time to get home and eat some lunch! :) Leyla and Eli LOVE lunchtime. It is where they have all of their "serious" moments. :)




THEN, we had the opposite of serious, when Sarahjane came over to play! :)  I absolutely adore this girl! She is so much fun!  The kids loved her too! She was a big hit! ;)







After the kids played "ring around the rosie" about 50x, it was time for Leyla to go home. :(  They were so sad to leave each other.  They kept hugging over and over...broke our hearts. :(

After dinner, David, Sarahjane and I took Eli to the new splash pad at War Memorial Park!  It is amazing!!!  We had so much fun! :)  I wish I had pictures, but I learned the day before not to take your camera/phone because it WILL get wet! LOL  Here are some pictures from yesterday, when we went with our best friends, the Elms'. :)





Not only is there a gigantic splash pad, but there is also a set of swings and some really great underground tunnels and slides! This place rocks!  We will definitely be spending a lot of time here, over the summer. :)

Play Date at the Park!

So much has happened since I last blogged!  My 5 year old graduated Pre K. My 8 year old graduated 2nd grade.  My adventurous 2 year old got a concussion. There is SO much that happened that I feel overwhelmed to even think about recapping, so let's just move forward to today.

Today was lots of fun!  Eli and I headed to the park to play with some friends.  It was HOTT, but we pulled it together for over an hour to have some fun with friends and I am so glad we did because we miss these girls, when they aren't around. ;)
























Eli and Addi really hit it off today...They were hugging, chasing, yelling "No!" at each other. :D Fun Times!

The Hurt & The Healer

Why?
The question that is never far away
But healing doesn't come from the explained
Jesus please don't let this go in vain
You're all I have
All that remains

So here I am
What's left of me
Where glory meets my suffering

I'm alive
Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
I fall into Your arms open wide
When the hurt and the healer collide

Breathe
Sometimes I feel it's all that I can do
Pain so deep that I can hardly move
Just keep my eyes completely fixed on You
Lord take hold and pull me through

So here I am
What's left of me
Where glory meets my suffering

I'm alive
Even though a part of me has died
You take my heart and breathe it back to life
I fall into Your arms open wide
When the hurt and the healer collide

It's the moment when humanity
Is overcome by majesty
When grace is ushered in for good
And all the scars are understood
When mercy takes its rightful place
And all these questions fade away
When out of the weakness we must bow
And hear You say "It's over now"

I'm alive
And even though a part of me has died
You take this heart and breathe it back to life
I fall to your arms open wide
When the hurt and the healer collide

Jesus come and break my fear
Awake my heart and take my tears
Find Your glory even here
When the hurt and the healer collide
[x2]

Jesus come and break my fear
Awake my heart and take my tears
Find Your glory even here

Small Fries, Sproles, and Service

Today was a fabulous day! :)  We started our morning off with spending a couple of hours with our playgroup!  My, Oh my...we have missed these ladies/kiddos.  It was so good to see them and catch up.  We also got to see baby Brooklyn for the first time! Eli was quite jealous of me spending time with Brooklyn.  He kept climbing on my knee, saying, "My momma...".  HEHE  That must be so confusing for little ones...to see their mommies hug and kiss on other babies.
Here are a few pictures from our morning play date:








We left the play date to meet daddy for lunch at Dixie Cafe and lunch did not sit well! LOL  I over did it! WHEW!  One should not eat fried pickles when coming off of a recent food poisoning ordeal! ;)

After lunch, Eli and I sped home to get Eli laid down for a nap (before it was too late) and to get me some nausea meds! I barely made it home! LOL
He only got to sleep a weak 45 minutes before it was time to pick up Ali and Drew from school, but it was all worth it for the big surprise of the afternoon! :)  We spent the afternoon with one of our absolute favorite families, the Sproles!  We adore this family and we always have so much fun with them!













I am so excited about that last picture!  We had to bribe the two youngest kiddos with candy, but we got everyone to smile and I will cherish this picture. :)

Tonight, we went to church and we just love our church! :)  In honor of Mother's Day, the kids sang on stage, "We are the Children" and it was so special. I loved it!  We feel so blessed to have found our church.  :)
