I really haven't blogged a lot lately so I feel there's a lot to say but none of it really fits together so forgive the choppiness of this post;0). Last weekend I went on a girl's weekend to Hot Springs. We had a BLAST! I went with my cousin, who is practically my sister. She brought along two of her dear friends from Texas. I brought along one of my dearest friends from high school. We've been close since the 1st grade. It was such a needed trip! I'm at this stage in life where I constantly have a pity party b/c I don't really have any friends. Don't get me wrong, I have people who are dear to me but I'm NEVER able to get together and do anything with anyone really. So this trip meant the world to me! A big thanks to all the girls who wore bows in their hair, gave out free compliments, hung out half naked at the bath house (some more than others... uhhhmm ... I'll not name any names;), played games, listened to Alicia and I scream like sissys, participated in the ridiculous video, protected us from the tool shed and SK(wink)IP;). Thank you all for the memories! Can't wait to make more! Okay, this is just pure randomness but isn't Parker just the cutest? It was crazy hair night at Awanas and I caught him flexing with my camera phone. He didn't even know I was watching at first, he just wanted to see how big his muscles were getting:) I got this CUTE new bag, which I know is WAY too big for a purse but ya know what... I'm using it for a purse anyways. It's from the Amazima ministry which was started by Katie Davis, the girl I blogged about a couple of weeks ago who moved to Uganda. WOW.. 147 million orphans.... humbling, isn't it?
Things around here have been eventful! Cam and I are in the process of having our faith stretched in many ways. We would love your prayers. God has been good to us and is so faithful to provide. Our prayer is to fully trust in Him and lay our lives down to what He has planned for us and our family!
Okay.. more randomness but here's a quick peek at little Piper Jane. She's talking up a storm. Much more than the boys did at this age. This is a video of her wanting mooooore twinkee. It was just a little bite, honest, but it created a MONSTER;)
Tonight Cameron and I sang at a fundraiser for a couple of students from Greenbrier. They will be going to Ghana, Africa this summer for a mission trip. HOW exciting is that? One of the fathers came to me and said, "You know this is all your fault. They fell in love with those kids when you started your Invisible Children group." I've actually had 3 of my old students go to Africa over the past 2 years. I'm SO proud of them all! I would love to go back to Africa. I read once that once you've been there, you bury a piece of your heart and forever long to return. I would wholeheartedly agree with that.
I am married to a wonderful man named Cameron. We love to laugh and do so often! We have 3 children who bring us more joy than we could've imagined. We're currently in the process of adopting a little girl from Ethiopia. We cannot wait to bring her home!
