Another Week...

I sit down to post and I can never seem to finish...must be something about two newborn babies that takes up a lot of time :)

My dad came to visit us for a few days to help us out and spend time with the boys. Thank you for all that you did for us while you were here! I don't think Eli and Landon minded all of the being held one bit :)



I also want to take a moment to mention some very special people whose generosity, thoughtfulness, and love have really made an impact on us.
Dad lives in Alabama and needless to say...we don't get to visit very often. He worships with the Sardis Springs church of Christ and throughout the whole pregnancy, delivery, and even now, they have continued to pray for our family. This alone we appreciate more than words can say, but they did not stop there. Despite not knowing our family, they had a baby shower for us and sent all of the wonderful gifts with Dad when he came to visit.

My sweet friend Trish is from Florida. When she went home to visit a few weekends ago, she mentioned to her congregation, who has also been praying for us, the financial burden this whole situation must have put on us and the members there collected money to send to us. I don't know if any of you read this, but if so...we humbly thank you.

There are many other congregations that have been praying for us this past year and many I'm sure that I don't even know about. We are just overwhelmed by the generosity and selflessness that others have shown to us and again, there are no words to express our appreciation.
Here are a few pictures of my sweet boys. I have so much more to share - like how they don't like to sleep at night, how we went to Lubbock by ourselves yesterday and actually survived, how sweet they are in the morning as they stare up at the stained glass window in our bedroom and are just mesmerized by it, how they can fuss for hours and as soon as they are in bed with us they are sound asleep, how sweet they look cuddled up asleep with daddy, and so much more. But for now...I'll just leave you with some pictures.

Looking up at our window in the morning. This is the only way I get a shower :)






Dad stayed with the boys, so that Dustin and I could go to worship services. It was the first time we had been together here in Snyder in almost two months.


This is Eli's favorite position - curled up in a ball

I'm being summoned by crying babies. I really love my life!

I hope you are all having a good week!
