This is Taylor with her friend Wyatt who lives right next door. His mom and dad have become good friends of ours and one of the reasons we are so thankful to live here at Gulf Dr. Posted by Picasa

Look who's standing up!

A couple weeks ago around the time for Aubrey to wake up from her nap I heard her "talking" in her room. Usually right when she wakes up she is ready to get out of bed and play with someone, so I was wondering why that time she was content just being in there by herself. Well, when I went in I saw why. She must have been busy trying to stand, and when she did pull herself up she was quite proud of herself! (Time to move the crib mattress all the way down!) I really doesn't take much to make this little one happy. Posted by Picasa

Meet Me in St. Louis

My mom and dad came out to visit us last weekend. We got to see several of the many sights of St. Louis, which is one of those things you often don't do until you have company! Taylor kept Nana busy from the moment she walked through the door. And we grown-ups enjoyed catching up on life and playing cards together at night. We all had a great time being together.....This is a picture of what might be Taylor's favorite part of the zoo, especially when she gets to go with Nana!

Surrender is turning over all that we are to God's mercy. It is laying down our arms and confessing that His power and glory outnumber our puny weapons. Even more, surrender confesses that our deepest desire is not to succeed in business, to marry, to have kids, to be well or simply happy; instead, our deepest hunger is to see Him. Surrender goes even further: It despises anything and everything in us and outside of us that compromises our passion to be caught up in His glory and love.

Taylor and I had a little excitement that I would like to share with anyone who might be amused by it....Taylor was outside with her trike and somehow it rolled into the brush behind our back yard. She could not get it out so, seeing the situation, I came to the rescue. I didn't have any shoes nearby so I just went in my bare feet like the country girl I am (or so thought). I was on my way to get the trike out of the brush when I felt a cold, slithery feeling on and between my toes! I jumped and shreeked loudly as I looked down and saw a very upset snake make its way into the brush. Realizing Taylor saw the whole thing, I laughed and tried to make it seem like no big deal but I still had the shivers! Oh well, I don't know anybody who likes to play footsie with a snake, even if it is only about 18 inches long.

Happy Easter!

 Posted by Picasa
Happy Easter from the Days! These pictures are the result of me attempting to get some nice Easter pictures of the two girls together. Maybe next year Aubrey will be alittle more cooperative and not want to crawl all over the place as soon as we let her go! Well, we take what we can get.

Sweet Memories

I was organizing our pictures today and ran across these two of Taylor and Caitlyn last summer. I just thought they were sweet and wanted to share. We love you, Caitlyn! Posted by Picasa

8 Months...

We have some exciting news that we would love tell everyone in person, but we don't want to wait that long! It has two tiny hands and two tiny feet, two eyes and a rapidly beating heart. The parents are eagerly preparing for the arrival of this little package as God knits it perfectly together. Aubrey will be about 15 months old and Taylor will be 3 years old when it finally arrives. Yes, about 8 months from now there will be a precious new baby born into the world! Who are the proud parents? We don't know, but we figure they are probably very excited about their new baby. Happy April fool's! I hope everyone has a great day full of fun and surprises. Josh already tried to make me spray myself with the kitchen sink sprayer. But I dodged it!
We do have some true news. Aubrey is officially crawling! She seriously never wants to stop moving now that she has figured out how to do it. She is so funny. Whenever we are holding her she makes a diving motion toward the floor because she wants to get down and GO. Her knees are constantly red. We are truly enjoying the children God has given us, and should He give us more we will let you know. ;)
