EMILY IS TURNING 1 TOMORROW!!!!

EMILY IS TURNING 1 TOMORROW!!!!

Yeah -- so, this post is WAY overdue. We have had a B U S Y few weeks trying to finish our basement, kitchen, and deck projects. A friend of ours, Drew, brought a team up last weekend and they did some wonderful work!! We are so grateful for the help we have received for these projects b/c it would really take a long time for us to get it done. With Cindy living with us now, an INCREDIBLE help, we need the extra room. It will be really nice down there. A couple friends came up a few weeks ago and completed some very helpful prepping and wiring. We are truly blessed to have so many great people in our lives.

Some of our best friends moved away a couple of weeks ago. The Chapmans are living it up in Clarksville now, sharing the Good News with everyone they meet I am sure. Check out their blog to see what's going on. I had a great time driving (actually Emman drove the whole way -- I played with my iPod and tried to feed his crave for loud "keep me awake" driving music) with Emman and we'll miss them sorely.

In the meantime we are keeping busy as always and Emily is just getting cuter and cuter. She is so interactive and we are so blessed by her. We pray for her daily and that is a learning experience too. How many times should you pray for the same thing? When are you showing a lack of faith, or even true interest? When does it come pure monotony? -- In the end, it is more important to focus on God rather than on the disease... that can be different for everybody. Annabelle prays at every meal and bedtime for Emily and it has been neat to see how she thinks about these things too. We encourage her to thank God for the things He is teaching us through Emily. It is really incredible b/c she does it on her own.

I'll leave you with a couple good links:
