friends.... i'm going to ask you for your prayers again.... it turns out that jackie, my six day old niece, has a heart condition as well. it is called transposition of the greater arteries (google it). she will most likely be having surgery on monday or tuesday. please be praying for mom (amy), dad (matt), and jackie. i have no doubt that the raising power of our savior can heal this little one. please join me in the plea!!!

also be lifting up my amazing parents, my sister's family, and ourselves as we all endure this for the second time in two years.

there is no greater friend than one that goes to the throne of God for you! Thank you for being faithful to pray!

friends and family.... i know you all remember the season that we endured just over a year ago with our son, caleb. now we are asking you to pray for our friends tom and jodie as their son will be undergoing open heart surgery on tuesday morning around 7 am. please pray for...

the peace of Chirst to fall on their family at this time
the steady hands and clear minds of the surgeons involved
the strength of and healthy recovery of baby tommy over the next few days

your prayers were much needed and such a blessing to us.... please shower this sweet family with the same fervent prayer!

Allie's first date

Lance and allie had "daddy and me" time this morning. It began with her waking up with an invitation to go on a date. She had to check yes or no... so, of course, she drew a circle in the yes box! She got dressed up, picked out a purse, and headed out the door to a surprise location. When the happy couple returned, all allie could tell me is that she went to mcdonalds and ate pancakes.... most certainly the highlight of her morning. However, daddy said that she has a great time at the animal museum as well. They were gone for two and 1/2 hours! WOW!

fun in the big D

this week lance was recruiting in dallas and the kids and i decided that we'd go there too. on tuesday night we drove to terrell and met up with my sister and her kids. we ate at cici's pizza and let the kids run the game room until they were about to drop. after getting back to jenni's (my sister) house we let all four kids take a bath together.... caleb was not real thrilled with that idea, but allie had a blast. (no pics of all that fun... sorry)

the next morning, we drive to DBU and got to see daddy for a little over an hour. we were really glad to be back together - if only for awhile. the kids ran everywhere and squeeled in the lobby of a dorm.... sorry to all those college students... after all, it was 9 in the morning.

that afternoon we went to my friend, Ashley's house, for an extended (two day) play date with her daughter, Anna. we went to a play area in the mall (see pics), target, and mcdonalds (details on this event are not for the faint of heart... i'll skip that one) to get the kids out and about. the temp was so low and the wind was so high that going outdoors was out of the question! we had a great time with them and i pray everyday that God would move our families closer together!
