Summer Salt 2014

We hosted our first community outreach at Goldwasser Park Saturday, and the Lord blessed with at least one hundred in attendance.  Our church family rallied together and cooked/served two hundred hotdog plates, as well as set up inflatables and games.  We also had a prayer booth for any who had a need.  Some our church groups sang, and Joshua was able to present the gospel.  What an amazing time of being Christ hands and feet.
 We had several families show interest in coming, some asking about rides to  church or VBS coming up next month.  Today a lady came and visited in the morning service as a result!  We are so excited!
 The kids seemed to really enjoy the games and goody bags.  This is one of our sweet families...  & Elliot's buddy!
I'm so thankful for this sweet girl!  She was such a blessing, helping me chase after the boys and stroll Mr. Elliot around the park yesterday, so that I could mingle and help Joshua.
Thank you all who came out and had a part in preparin…

Happy 2nd Birthday, Elliot!

Happy Birthday to our joy Boy!  Our sweet Elliot Christian turned 2 today!  He is full of energy, smiles, and into everything!  He is very inquisitive, likes to read, play with and follow his brother, lots of tickles, and will eat anything once.  He doesn't meet a stranger and loves to shake hands at church.  We are so blessed that he is part of our family!  Elliot, we love you so very much!

Eliana's Baby Shower

This afternoon, our sweet ladies at church showered Baby Eliana with all kinds of pink, purple, corral, mint green, and yellow blessings.  I just can't wait to dress up our little Princess!
 Thank you, ladies, for the beautiful baby shower and your thoughtfulness to our family.

 I had two of the best little helpers!

 When I got home to show the boys all the beautiful baby things, Ethan said, "The Princess IS coming!"  Just not tonight ;)

Fifth Anniversary Weekend

About a month ago, we took a day trip to Beaufort, SC where we vacationed for our first Anniversary.  It's amazing to see where God has brought us; what He has taught us; and the blessings He gives!
 Five years ago, I could have not imagined all that God had planned for Joshua & I as we began our journey as husband and wife.  Now here we are with almost 3 babies, 3 states, 3 homes (& 2 "fill-in" homes), 4 dogs, 5 different vehicles, alot of changes- yet God continues to grow and bless our love for each other.  These last five years have been the most amazing adventure, and I'm so grateful to be by Joshua's side for each moment of it!  I'm so looking forward to the rest of our forever and always together!
 Usually we take a trip out of town, but with all the traveling we have done the last six months we decided to forego the trip until the fall when we can take all three babies with us.  So we celebrated in town with lunch out and the annual Bacon Cou…
