Happy Valentine's Day!

It has been a week filled with card-making, candy-giving, and love!!  I shared with the kids that this "LOVE" celebration should remind us of THE GREATEST LOVE!!  John 15:12-14 "My command is this: love each other as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends."  

Happy Mardi Gras!

We partook of some Mardi Gras goodness to celebrate Tuesday!!!

Uncle Mikey

Mikey came to visit us in Oxford recently and we sang an early Happy Birthday to him!  He and Auggie did some bonding while had school/bible study/etc.  Come again, Uncle Mikey!!

Real Mississippi

We jumped into the Mississippi way of life and attended a rodeo a few weekends ago.  We had rented a movie, Cowgirls and Angels, and Montana kept talking about how she one day wanted to ride in a rodeo.  Sooo, Blake surprisingly found out at work the next week, that a rodeo was coming to town and decided to surprise the kids.  They were hilarious trying to figure it out...when we pulled up one of them said, "Well, there are lots of cowboys."  It made the biggest impression on Auggie, though, who continues to say, "Cow, RUN, RUN, RUN" and runs around the house!!

Beauty and the Beast

Last Thursday night the girls and I went to the Ford Center for Beauty and the Beast!!  It was SO exciting to have a Broadway Show come to town!  They both loved it and watched intently the whole time!  They were beyond excited about dressing up for the show...don't they look just like Belle??
