Rio Frio Trip: Fun for the whole family

Here is just a famil shot Stephen took with my camera, it turned out grainy but I tried to salvege it, I like how it turned out. We had the BEST time, relaxing doesn't even begin to describe how chill it was. God reavaled a lot to use there too... it was an awesome time to bond with Kiki even with matching pigtails. or "tink tales" as she calls them. More pics to come from our trip.


Puppy Love

Tell me this isn't love?!


In the little things

Something tells me I will have a lot of these stories to share. Bry loves doing the yard. For some reason it's a sense of ownership for him, maybe because it's our first house, maybe because of all those hours he spent sweating and slaving in college working on other people's yards for Scott....nevertheless, he loves it. Well, this weekend our lawn mower broke and he had to go borrow one from his brother. He was glad to have that option but quickly trying to plan HOW we would be able to fix ours, which it wasn't fixable, or buy one, which we have no money for.

Let me interject that I don't care about a lawn mower and I have no idea why we couldn't just borrow one forever, but it's REALLY important to him...

So the next few days go by, I of course thinking nothing about a lawn mover and he of course praying for God to make a way that he could buy this much needed device.
We get a check in the mail for a pretty good amount, not sure why we receive it, we call around do some checking and it turns out Bry won some kind of award SO..... that next day at work he is praying for a way to get a lawn mower and that evening is when we receive the check. He now has enough money to cash the check in, go buy his mover on the way home from work, AND take me and kehnley out for some much needed family time :)

I already knew that God would meet our needs, He's done it so many times before in the past... but Bry has a hard time with that one. Maybe it's a man thing, :) anyway, needless to say God used this lawn mower "crisis" to very loudly say over the hum of the slicing blades, I have it all under control... even your yard matters to me :) It helps us know that God will take care of the big things if He will provide the silly stuff too. As always His timing is perfect because in three short weeks we will cut our income in half ( no pun intended) and I know there will be moments where we will wonder how we will get by and God is going to show His love and power in mighty ways.

Thank you for the reminder Lord.

Isaiah 58:11 "The Lord will guide you always, and satisfy your needs...."
Phil. 4:19 "And my God will meed all your needs, according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus."
1 Tim. 6:17 "Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us everything for our enjoyment."

If you want to see Bry in action come by our house this week... He will be showing off his new mover to the world!


Easter 09

It's amazing how much they change in such a short time...

This was Kehnley just one year ago....
and here she is now!

Kehnley loved the sucker Fancy put in her basket more than her beautiful Easter dress...which is why it's in every pic even if you can't see it. She held onto in all day.

The Easter baskets are fun, but we don't even begin to act as if they could compair to the anticipation of the gift of God's promise to come back from the grave like he did that bright morning. I hope that we will convey that to our children like our parents did for us.

Her Chick and Bunny made friends while we all hunted for eggs inside.

Jennifer got a new pup for Eater, and Kehnley was in love! maybe
TOO in love :)
