The Parents Have Arrived

I apologize for the time span between entries but we were getting ready for Brian's parents to come for a much needed visit. We are so glad they are here and Mili is ecstatic to be with them. She didn't understand why they were not on the TV (video phone). After she warmed up, she has been running them to death. She is starting to show-off like I know she can and the grandparents are saying that she is no different than her cousins with all the drama.

I will go for now but just wanted you all to know that we are alive and well and really WELL since we have family here for Thanksgiving.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!! (Miss you this year Dani Lee)

Everyone has something to be thankful for.

I am thankful for all our friends and family who are reading this. Hugs and Kisses.

Growing LITTLE Horns

Mili finally has enough hair to put up in pig-tails. These pics were taken two different days (Tuesday and Wednesday). The women at the church went crazy over the two little horns sticking up on her head (some days I think they are real horns). We have to have "heart check" (a friend at church uses this with her three children) moments more often than I want to. Right now Mili is not old enough to understand it but she will. It is basicly a nice way to say, "your heart needs some attention because it is not on the right track". When I have seen my friend use it on her children it is quite amazing how well it works. It just makes them think about the ugliness (is that a word?) coming out of their hearts and into action.

I am thankful for some very strong Christian families at our church. I feel like I need that kind of parenting to look-up to since I am not at home with my family and friends that I have trusted and been around all my life (although Brian and I both grew up in great families who loved us and disciplined us accordingly). I would like to talk with some of the parents at church who have teenagers that are serving and making great choices in their lives. Brian is in a parenting class with some of the best parents in the church and I am always asking him to pick their brains while they are in small group time. I want to keep all my options open when it comes to Mili's future. Enough about parenting.

Holly Springs family, we love you and miss you. Can't wait to come home and worship with you guys. We will be home December 8th-19th (we will have two Sundays and one Wednesday with you all).

Love to ALL!!!
