As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2: 4-5

This weekend was a weekend of celebration.
A celebration of new learning...
"But Mom, I did it all myself!"

And Hannah found all the right letters and spelled her name all by herself!
A celebration of Maddy coming home from church camp in Daytona, Florida. She memorized the most Bible verses of anyone there (out of 275 campers!) and brought home this trophy. She also came home on fire for the Lord.
We celebrated Daryl on Father's Day. For our gift to him this year, each of the children and I wrote out 60 or so reasons why we love him (I actually wrote the little girls') and then put all 365 reasons and 365 smarties(his favorite) in a big jar. One reminder of how much we love him for every day in the coming year. Some were sweet, some were funny, all were true.

Josh also spent his own money and got Daryl a new GPS. So proud of that boy.

My loves.

After we opened presents and took pictures, Hannah insisted that her Daddy dance with her. So the girls played their ringtones and they danced!

We also celebrated my birthday this weekend. Daryl let me sleep in (til 8:00!) and everyone stayed home. We went out to eat with my parents at Golden Corral. And I got this:

Josh and Daryl pooled their money to get me a new laptop. I can't tell you how incredibly surprised I was. I figured I'd be laptop-less until the last one graduated college! I was also touched by how Josh chipped in to buy this for me, when he needs one of his own.
So with new lap top in hand...surely I'll be able to blog more, right????
