I love the look of Joy in Eden's face :)

O Happy Day :)

As most of you know, our family lives in the parsonage next to the church where Larry is the pastor. I love our home and have spent the past year making it ours. I asked the deacons if it would be alright to take down the wallpaper so that I could paint our kitchen. This past week Mr. Gene (a church member) came over and spent two day transforming our kitchen. He painted it while I was in Charlotte. I am so thrilled with the update. :)
If you have never taken down wall paper, I'll let you know. It's a tedious task. Actually the wall paper came down easily. It was the glue left behind that was the problem.
For the bargain hunters. I recently purchased a beautiful chandelier at a lighting store that was going out of business. It was originally priced at$592. I paid $72 :) Gotta love a bargain :)

The messy process of taking down the wall paper

Please ignore the mess on the table. I was trying to do this post :)

Two teeth

I love this picture of Josiah. He is such a cute baby!
You can see his first two teeth coming in on the bottom. He's had a great time with his cousins and being the center of so much attention.
Uncle Shannon and Yaya have promised to give him his forst haircut tomorrow. I'll take some pictures and post them soon :)

All together, well almost.

This is a rare thing... all the grandchildren in the same place. This isn't technically all the grandchildren. Abbey shared with us this weekend that she and Brian are expecting March 27th. We are so excited for them!

Join us a the table

Josiah is so haapy to be a the table with us. We finally pulled Eden's high chair out of the attic for him. He thinks he's a big boy now :) I'm telling you, this kid is just cute!

Air Eden

Eden loves playing with her Daddy. Her daddy loves basketball. My guess is Eden is going to love basketball too. Now she will probably never be tall enough to be a center. But she might turn out to be one heck of a point guard! :)

Cutest red head ever!

I've determined that I have the cutest red head ever! Josiah is so happy and a great baby. He's sitting up on his own, loves to eat and wants to push up to crawl. I just want to squeeze him and love on him all the time. Enjoy!

I wonder what he was thinking. :)

Sleepy baby

Sweet siblings

This is just cute! Eden has decided she loves her little brother lately. She loves to kiss and hug on him, and he loves the attention! I really hope this continues and that we can help them love one another.

The weather was so beautiful today! We enjoyed some great fun outside. Here are a few shots of Eden's fun on the playground.

I thought this was a great shot, especially considering it was caught mid-swing:)

She just looks mischievous :)

Eden loves her hat and sunglasses. She's all girl!

Here Kitty Kitty

We have two sweet cats. They love our kids and the rough attention they offer. Sampson and Delilah take all kinds of "love" from Eden and Josiah, but they always been gentle with them.

8 Legged visitor

This was a neat looking spider Eden and I found tonight while playing. OK Uncle Shannon, What kind of spider is this?

Pool Time

The weather has been so nice lately. I pulled out Eden's pool and Josiah and I watched her from the porch. Then Josiah and I decided it would be fun for him to put his feet in. While I had him hanging over the side, Eden decided to splash us. We we're soaked. So I figured we might as well get in and enjoy, clothes and all. Eden thought it was so funny for us to all be in the pool. Good times.. good times :)

All smiles
Check out Eden's sunglasses... They are upside down! Silly girl:)
