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

Happy Birthday, Maddy!

My beautiful third born, my second daughter, Madeline celebrated her 15th birthday on January 15th.  We were fortunate to be off from school on her birthday, as it was MLK Jr.'s birthday.  We went to church that morning as a family, and then upon Maddy's request, we headed to the lake to visit Grandma and Grandpa.

Waking up 15 years old!
 As soon as we got to the lake, we opened presents.  One of her favorite presents was inspired by her latest obsession, Hunger Games.
 Her main gift, a new laptop.  She had saved some of the money, and for her birthday, we kicked in the rest.

 the big kids
 and Charlotte, who chose to play instead!
 Practicing inside....(she didn't let the arrow go inside!)
 and outside

 Then we went ice skating.  Ice skating in Georgia?  Yep.  The Ritz Carlton made an ice skating rink for a few months, so we went and checked it out.

 Hard to believe that I used to be an ice skater.  OK, I was 5, but I still used to be able to make it around an ice skating rink without having to be led around the rink like an old lady!
 You can't tell from this picture, but I did eventually get the hang of it!

 After a dinner of Grandpa's famous hamburgers, we had cake and ice cream.

 and then skyped with Kathleen and "baby cousins"

Happy Birthday Maddy Moo!  We love you!
