What a weekend!  We had so much fun and got so many things accomplished but I am really bummed to not have my camera to save the memories!  I did order a new one that will hopefully arrive this week but it can’t get here soon enough. Here are some pictureless highlights from our last

According to Toby last Sunday was “the best day ever!”  He was beaming with such pride and grace that it made my heart swell just to be there with him.  He had been preparing for that day for a long time and I truly believe that he was way more prepared and understood the significance

Someday Toby may not be happy with me sharing this picture but I just can’t resist.  Lilly loves to have her hair combed after she gets out of the shower.  Toby just happens to enjoy doing that for her.  This is one of the very few times that she sits still and it is so

The past month has flown by with all that we have been up to.  I have been busy with my job at church and will continue to be through the rest of May when I will then be resigning from the position.  With the baby coming in the fall I want to be able to
