How would you like an update?

First of all, this little girl turned three!

I can hardly believe that it's been three years since she came into our lives. What a crazy few years. So full of blessings beyond anything I could have ever imagined. Though she has grown so much, in so many ways she is the same as the moment we first met her.

Proudly showing off her new boots birthday morning:
LOVING her new dress up clothes:

Fun with Chuck:
The cake balls that resulted from deformed Hello Kitty:
The best start to strawberry cake:
An embarrassed but "totally loving the spotlight" birthday girl:
On to other news. I am excited to announce that this little man is going to be a big brother. A big brother to a little brother, that is. Could the next little Hendrix possibly be this cute?

Now, I'm excited about this project for the little one. At one time, I started a hexagon afghan for myself, but along the way, discovered an error I was making. I got discouraged and quit. But as soon as I found out what Ben & Megan were having I ran out and picked up these totally boy colors:

And accomplished this on Saturday and Sunday:
A little more than one row, 13 hexagons completed and connected. 8 rows, 90 more hexagons to go...

Excited for this...

new book.

I have several of her books. I love how they are no nonsense and just so practical. I think every wife should read The Proper Care and Feeding of Husbands. I'm still in the process of reading Stupid Things Parents Do To Mess Up Their Kids: Don't Have Them If You Won't Raise Them. And I'd really like to get The Proper Care and Feeding of Marriage.

Has it really been over a month?

I know, I know. I'll try, but really, there isn't too much to share. I'll try to muster up the energy to put together some b-day pictures of Claire to share. For now, just a really great quote:

“If God had perceived that our greatest need was economic, he would have sent an economist. If he had perceived that our greatest need was entertainment, he would have sent us a comedian or an artist. If God had perceived that our greatest need was political stability, he would have sent us a politician. If he had perceived that our greatest need was health, he would have sent us a doctor. But he perceived that our greatest need involved our sin, our alienation from him, our profound rebellion, our death; and he sent us a Savior.”
