S: Summer With Grandma and Papa
BC: Made with Love by Grandma Barton for Christmas 2011 | Grandpa enjoyed playing with the Knex too!
FC: At Grandma & Papa's House 2011 | The Dog Days of Summer
1: Stewart Baptist Church was holding their VBS and so the boys got to go for four of the five days with Nicky and Lauren. 6-2011 | Preston wasn't too happy with the huge knot on his head from falling off his bike... | But, a goodie bag from VBS did the trick! | It's so amazing to think about God's love. The God of creation is looking out for us. God is right here with us and He's wild, He's wild, God is wild about us! Psalm 13:9
2: Best Buds Landon & Nick June 2011
3: When you're jumping, jumping up & down. When you're spinning, spinning round & round. God is seeing everything you do,'cause He's watching, watching over you. God is watching, watching over you, 24/7 watching over you. Your life is in his bands, woh, woh He's got great big plans 'cause He's watching over you! | Landon is always smiling
4: Jump & look around at what God has created. Jump & Jesus will keep you afloat. Jump & put your doubts away. Jump & live with God forever. | Faith ~ trusting in what you can't see because of what you can see.
5: Matt. 17:20, Heb. 11:1, Acts 16:5, Jump, Jump, Jumpin' In! | My team waits in a nice (straight?) row at the ACC building for some fun JUMP games
6: Melissa and I were leaders together for JUMP. I had my grandson's and she had her grandson and granddaughter. | HAVE FAITH JUST... JUMP IN! | July 11-13, 2011
7: Maybe it's a little bit crazy to believe in what I cannot see, maybe it's a little bit crazy that my best friend is my Saviour, maybe it's a little bit crazy that a King would give His life for me, maybe it's a little bit crazy but, I've heard much stranger. Some things you've got to see by Faith. Jump up and down, jump up and down I don't care what people say. | Jump up and down I'm going to shout it out I believe in Jesus! Maybe it's a little bit crazy to believe in what I cannot see, maybe it's a little bit crazy that my best friend is my Saviour!
8: Gigi, Papa, and Auntie Rae Rae came to "Parent Night" to see the boys
9: “Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.” ~Dr Seuss
10: I love my P-Dog!
11: Families are like fudge...mostly sweet with a few nuts.
12: I think the photograph time was one of the kids favorite things to do. Dress up and act silly!
13: “To us, family means putting your arms around each other and being there.” ~Barbara Bush
15: Life brings simple pleasures to us every day. It is up to us to make them wonderful memories. ~Cathy Allen
16: Crafts and Games | Ooh, Ooh, Ooh, Jump, Jump, Jumpin' In. I want my world to know, I want to let it show, the One who made me whole lives inside of me.
17: With every breath I take, with every word I say I want to live each day and tell the story. I saw the One who has a love deep as an ocean, I'm going to Jump I'm going to put my Faith in motion. | Who Could Ask for Anything More!
18: Mmm, Mmm Good! | We took the boys to Blueberry Hill to pick a bucket of fresh berries. A huge bucket was only $10! We should of gotten two but it does take a long time to fill up one bucket even with 5 of us doing it. | Pure Sweetness
19: P-dog ~ "I'm nice and cool now from all that work"
20: "Are you smilin' like a possum?" | His name is Grandpa Nipper and he shared some words of wisdom about picking blueberries; "The little ones that are all shriveled up we don't want to pick them because they're hard and customers don't want them", LOL
21: A little spillage from the bucket to the bag.
22: Bath time, spiked hair and playing the keyboard in Uncle Nick's room.
23: The best putter to sleeper ever! | Experimenting with KNEX
24: Grandma Loves You Too Much! | You can't help but be all smiles at Pachos with the yummy Mexican food they serve.
25: On the way to ECC we saw this rolling movie set! | "Even though you are in my home for a short time You are in my heart forever." | Neighbors, Nicky and Lauren, came to ECC's JUMP VBS with us. | Silly car time with Preston and Grandma. | Silly face time with Auntie Rae Rae. | Silly Preston! | Sparkler fun before bed time. | We enjoy letting the boys say prayers at meal time.
