Mikah's First Day of 1st Grade!

We have a big time 1st grader! Mikah was excited to go back to school, we'll see how long that lasts!

Blessing upon blessing...

We were able to bless someone with a car at the end of last year and were so very excited/happy to do it. Well God decided to in turn bless us recently!

Someone from work called me a couple of weekends ago and very generously asked if they could bless us with their mini-van! Um, what, excuse me??? Yes, you read right, we were given a minivan for our growing family! :) I was starting to wonder how we were going to fit all 3 kids in the backseat of our Honda, but I knew that other families had worked it out, so I figured we could as well. But now, we have PLENTY of room and also have room for passengers, which works out great cause I am picking up my friends girls from school. They each now have a place to legally sit! Mikah and Gavyn are loving the van and are ready to take it on vacation!
Alison came over and painted Gavyn's Princess wall! She did such a great job and Gavyn loves it. We painted her name the same color blue as the lower wall and Alison used the two pinks that were on Gavyn's Princess Bedding. She will eventually paint on Lukas' wall as soon as we officially decide what we want/like!

Random cute picture of Gavyn - she was CHOWING down on her corn-on-the-cob and when she was done, this is what she looked like! Too cute! :)

Maternity Pics

8 Years

Chris and I celebrated 8 years of marriage on August 10th, which fell on a Tuesday. My parents came up from Texas this past Sunday and stayed the night with Mikah and Gavyn, so we could get a hotel room and spent some quality time together, just the two of us! We splurged and stayed at the Skirvin Hotel, ate dinner at Red Prime Steakhouse, went to the movies and just enjoyed some much needed time together. On Monday, while Oma and Opa took the kids to the Science Muesum, we drove around OKC daydreaming about our next house (we are about to outgrow our current one, but staying put for the time being). Ended up eating lunch at Victorias Pasta Shop in Norman, and then dessert was at Il Dolche in Moore. So all in all, we spent good quality time together and ate very well in the process! :)

We normally don't give gifts to each other, but Chris surprised me with a pair of fabulous shoes - the new TOMS Wedges! I have been eyeing them since they came out and was so surprised and happy when I received them at work. We were checking out Blue 7, one of our favorite local stores, and found some TOMS for Chris as well, so we bought each other TOMS for our anniversary! Check out the TOMS shoe story, if you haven't already. They are so worth it!

Here is a pic of our Anniversary shoes, Mikah took the pic for us!
Thanks mom and dad for coming up to stay with the kids, it was a huge blessing! :)
