Judge made his grand entry on September 27, 2011 weighing 7 pounds 10 ounces and measuring 19 inches long. We are happy to welcome Kaebrynn and Judge into our family.

20: June 2011 We found out our sweet Mimi has cancer. With this news, we have learned that we must enjoy our time as a family and make every moment count. One way we did that was by taking a trip to the Myatt Creek. The kids had a blast and Mimi enjoyed it as well.
23: Vacation Bible School 2011 | Believe It or Not...It's In the Bible. This was our theme for VBS. We learned three amazing Bible stories and were wowed by the cool skits. Papa Joe crushed a clay pot and Lucas killed daddy in "Gideon's Brave Men", uncle Greg brought down REAL fire as Elijah, and Mr.Craig was half man-half donkey as Balaam and his donkey. Aunt Jamie transformed the auditorium into the Holy Land with her creativity. Then the ladies in the kitchen filled our bellies, so we would have lots of energy to shoot each other with water guns provided by Mrs. Debbie. What a great VBS! Can't wait until next year!!! Also a big thanks to Mimaw and Papa Tony for keeping Joby, so mommy and daddy could teach at VBS. Next year Joby will be there!

However, we can rest assured that this life is not what we strive for, but a more glorious place called Heaven.
