On Friday night we had a nice dinner out with our good friends, the Vallecorse's. Samuel and Winnie tried out their highchair covers and seemed to really love sitting up at the table. We always have a blast with the V's and cherish our time with them. After dinner we tried to put the kiddos in the grass to snap a few photos....it started raining and both weren't too sure about the grass!
On Saturday I spent a fun (busy) morning with a new friend, Kristi...she and her husband have joined our couple's small group and excited to get to know her better. She and I went to our church sidewalk sale and bonded over good deals! Seriously, they had toys/books/clothes $2 or less!!!! We both made out big time! Afterwards we headed back to her home so the girls could play together. Winnie loves watching Hannah and Emma walk and play!
All this for $19....including a Patsy Aiken dress!!Winnie loves her new toys, especially this book...and it was only a quarter!!
Sunday was an awesome day too.... One of the girls I used to lead was in town from Atlanta!! Christine moved there a few years ago when her dad got relocated. I absolutely LOVED seeing her and having some special time after church to catch-up and see where the Lord is leading her. She is an amazing woman of God and was so happy to hear she (still) has a heart to go to Africa someday. Her passion is to become a nurse and then go to Africa to serve the people who are hurting. This girl has got to get there!! Our time together was too short...and I miss her already!
Tom was busy in the bonus room all weekend...its coming together. Hoping we can the electrical and framing inspections this week...and PASS!!

Everyday is a new day with Winnie, she is growing so fast and doing something new each day. Lately she is on her belly a whole lot more and trying to scooch around, mostly backwards. She continues to try and put her little legs under her butt so she can crawl but hasn't been able to yet. At daycare (Mary's home) she loves the walker and can move backwards about 3-4 feet.
This week she said "Mamamamama"!! My week was made!! She has always been a talker but only at home...even these videos were hard to get as she stops talking as soon as she sees the camera ;-(
The first video she shows us the skill of throwing your toys off the high chair tray...wonderful... time to teach her to keep them on the tray!! Look at those eyes...and even her hands say "I just did something I wasn't suppose to..."
Oh, haha, don't mind the conference calls in the background....our house is crazy in the mornings with us both having WW jobs.
