josiah's in the next room talking to dora.  on the big screen.  you know....she & boots ask questions and wait for your answer.  it's so cute.  i love hearing him jabber.

it got me thinking.....  i have so much to be thankful for.  a number of people & families in my life are going through some really difficult circumstances right now....  praying for them.  for health & strength.  courage...as they face new realities in their lives.  for the children who've just lost their dad, who only a year ago was diagnosed with cancer.  or for the little 2-year-old who now has to go through treatment for leukemia.  or for the family that has lost their wife and mom of 57 years.....

don't take today for granted.  live each day to the fullest.  no regrets.  :)

since every post has to have a photo -- here's a pic of robyn from last week, when aunt sara & uncle david were home.  doing what she loves.  (sniff!)

meeting felicity.

joe's sister and her husband were home this past week from newfoundland - with the NEWEST, LITTLEST howe in tow!  :)))  we were all pretty excited to finally meet felicity!  it's hard to believe she's already 2 months old!

here are a few of my faves from their visit!  :)  (...isn't my new niece that absolute CUTEST?!!?!?!) 

nothing like seeing a daddy swept off his feet by his baby girl.

felicity was the first to wear one of my new purchases from etsy!  an ADORABLE shop called 'adorable props'.  check it out!

on their last day, sara & david wanted me to take a few family pictures.  so i did.  gladly.  :)


why does newfoundland have to be so far away?!  :(((  can't wait to see you guys again!!  xo!

today's dose of inspiration.

from the website...
'Soul Surfer' is the inspiring true story of teen surfer bethany hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack and courageously overcame all odds to become a champion again, through the love of her family, her sheer determination and unwavering faith.

...and it opens TODAY.

i love how this story is out there. here's this young woman standing up for Christ and revealing to everybody the hope she has in Him. she says, "...being able to turn to Jesus after the shark attack kept me alive."  AMAZING!!!!  bethany, i cannot wait to see & hear your story on the big screen!!! :D

she's also part of a movement meant to inspire people of all kinds to live for God and for others. it's called, I Am Second. here's her short film.

"I will never leave you, I will never abandon you."

the sucker.

yesterday, josiah made his very own sucker while at the sitter's.  he loved it...as you can tell.  :)

i'll bet she's trying to sweeten him up, so he'll give her a lick!  ;D

ha!  i don't think it's working, robyn.  he wants a kiss first.  ;)

too funny.  i love my kids.  xo.
