We left for Williamsburg last Thursday. Josie was excited to ride on a plane for the first time. Ok...she really didn't know what was going on but this is still a cute picture. She did awesome on the plane...she did however fill up her diaper twice while on the 1.5 hour flight. My wonderful husband volunteered to change her. He is awesome. Here is Josie and Russ in the plane.
Josie loved rocking in the recliner with her Uncle Steve and loved just looking and laughing at sweet Emma.

While we were there we visited Jamestowne, Williamsburg and William and Mary. We had a blast just hanging out with Sherry and Steve after the girls went to bed. We ate great food and watched some awesome football throughout the weekend. It is such a blessing to have great family! Here we are on our picnic in Jamestowne. (Brother and Sister.... aren't they cute with their daughters!)

three months= less pictures

Josie is officially 3 months old. I have gotten really bad about taking pictures. Due to my life now having a routine things are starting to feel slightly normal.
Here are the quick updates:
1. Our porch is almost done. Yippee! Pictures to come.
2. I joined a Mom to Moms Bible Study at the church and I love it already.
3. I am tutoring again.
4. We are headed to Williamsburg this week to see Russ' sister, husband and daughter. Josie's first plane ride.
5. I went to the fair this past week with my dad.

Dad and I have had a "date" to the fair ever since I can remember. Even when we lived in different states (in college) he would fly home so we could go to the Gwinnett County Fair. It is always fun and quite the people watching spectacle. Basically, we just eat a bunch of junk.... yummy junk, might I add, and talk to old school Lawrenceville people.

This was the cutest little cowboy showing his goat. Gotta love the fair.

And here is sweet Miss Josie ready for church this morning. I think she looks lots like me here.

my husband... God love him... and me too

my husband had 5 oreos with his dinner and is now sitting down with a HUGE bowl of moose tracks (1 hour later).... he says it is his reward for being made fun of in high school for being skinny......i will never understand that type of freedom in eating.

special needs = a huge part of my heart that the Lord created
sarah's speech = me crying and longing for the camera to remain on her sweet baby boy

visiting our family and friends

For those of you who know Russ and I well, you also know that we have busy lives. But we like it that way. Last Monday Josie and I went to visit my friend Maci and her daughter Allyn Marie at her new house. We were lucky to get a cute picture of the two of them together. (Check out that double chin... what what.)
On Wednesday of last week, Josie, Mom and I headed to Auburn to see KC. We helped him with his room, decor etc. That is what moms and sisters are for. I have done this for the past few years. I love it. And it makes me feel needed as his sister.
Ben(kc's long lost roomate) they have lived together the whole time while at Auburn except this year:(, KC and Tommy.

Me, KC, Josie and Mom

Do you think they look alike?

Last but not least. Christi Wilson has joined our lives for this semester. We are so excited. She is interning with Russ at the church and helping me out a lot. She is in her last semester at Auburn but we are glad she is in Atlanta with us. We love her!!

Another new blog post below.

Porch Progress

We started work on our porch. Yippee! I love fall and really wanted things done so we could enjoy the weather!

This is with the new foundation and wall.

This is the foundation being poured.

Before pics. They built pillars to hold up the roof while the demolition took place.

More to come later. This is our last big project in our home renovation!
