I can't believe I'm actually typing that my baby boy has turned 4! It's amazing how fast time flies bye! I just have to say that Cannon has brought so much joy to my life. He is constantly cracking me up with his little one-liners that sound like a 19 year old in a totally hick accent. What a wise little spirit he has been given by God, and I pray the Lord uses his life to bring glory to His Name. I am grateful for the valuable one-on-one time Cannon and I got to spend before Hartlee was born...that time was so precious to me. I remember looking at him while we would lie in bed and he had just dozed off for a 3 hour nap and thinking that nothing in the world could be as cute as him. It's been so priceless to watch him interact with Hartlee and how he is the most protective big brother I have ever met in my life. From the first day he met her, he has been so gracious in loving and teaching her. I never once had to deal with jealousy from him towards her...what a gift. And, amazingly, he is just as excited about this next baby. What a precious, gifted, sweet boy the Lord has given Shane and I. We celebrated him turning 4 with a basketball birthday and the basketball pavillion here in Boerne. It was perfect and the kids had a blast. Huge shoutout to my friends Bear and Steve who dressed up as referees and played games with the kids :) And what a fun turnout of friends and family! We are so very blessed!

Ok, there is a fabulous rv/camping park near Canyon Lake called Jellystone Park...yes, like Yogi Bear and Boo Boo. My parents took our family over Spring Break and we had so much fun! Not only did the kids get to meet Yogi Bear, but there was also a HUGE blob trampoline, fun bicycle gocarts, arts and crafts, and a swimming pool. We didn't exactly "rough it" though, we got to stay in a cabin with a/c :) We played "candy bar bingo"...Coach won 8 candy bars! And we roasted marshmellows as well. I'm serious, anyone with kids definitely needs to check this place out! So much fun! Thanks Grammy and Coach!

I've missed out on so many updates because my computer isn't working right! Not fun! Well, I've also been super super sick from this pregnancy, so I haven't felt like doing much anyways. Huge highlight of the past couple of week was turning 30!!! Woohoo!! My family came in for the weekend and we had such a great time hanging out together...I am really just so thankful for my family. And, I still can't believe it, but my husband/family/friends actually pulled off a surprise party! I seriously did not know anything about it! I know Shane and Courtney worked really hard with all the details, and I'm so thankful for everyone that was there. I was super pumped to have my sweet friend Steph come in from College Station and stay the night! Priceless!! Something I will never forget is the incredible prayer time we had at the Loft during the party. There is nothing more amazing than sitting in the presence of God with all of the people I love the most in this world. And the letters that Courtney got together from all of my closest friends and family were absolutely unforgettable...each one touched my heart in such a special way...I am incredibly loved and blessed. So thankful for God's grace over my life!!
