Where were you when the world stopped turning that September day?

I think we'll all remember where we were that awful September morning 10 years ago when the twin towers were struck in New York City.  I was a freshman at Montana State University.  My roommates brother called when I was still asleep and she had left to work already.  I remember being irritated that the phone was ringing so early (this seemed to happen alot) but that quickly vanished once my brain woke up enough to register his message.  I almost fell out of the bunk bed in my rush to turn on the TV to watch the news footage.  We were in a daze for the whole day, shuffling numb to classes that weren't cancelled and huddled watching news footage during cancelled classes.  I remember the coming together of Americans in the year after 9/11, I wish that was the current sentiment of our country.  It's a reminder that freedom is something we cannot take for granted and that true freedom and community come in Christ because He is the ultimate redeemer and freedom maker.

Happy 1st Birthday Lucy!!

Happy Birthday to our little Lucy Etta!  It's hard to believe you are already one year old! Whew that was fast.  You are such a sweet heart.  Here's what you love right now:

Avocado
Cuddling with Mama
Being  outside
Bathtime - you  crawl like crazy once that water starts running
playing with your brother's toys
chewing on crayons
turning the TV on and off
dancing and clapping to music
Laughing
Crawling up and down stairs


 Good Morning Birthday Girl!!


 what a pretty girl

 My girlfriend, Allison got cupcakes for Lucy's birthday for the kids playdate.




 Cake batter pancakes with sprinkles and yogurt for breakfast!

 Lucy's favorite part of presents was the paper and bows.

I made an apple spice yogurt cake for lil' miss with cream cheese frosting.  Grady was the most excited about the cake, he decided we should have cake and presents everyday, ha!
 Mmmm, cake. 
Ain't she the cutest?! We love you baby!
