Shine Like Stars

Shine like stars in the universe as we hold out the Word of life (Phil. 2:15)
We're not trying to be rock stars but just shed some light on a sad and lonely world. Stay tuned for how God works through weak and tired, sometimes really cranky vessels.

Getting Ready for Baby

The kiddos have been getting ready for their new baby sister. Yesterday Nathan said, "Why it taking so long for our baby to get here?" I didn't have the heart to tell him that we aren't even on the wait list yet (not that he'd know what that means or anything.) The boys have decided to call her Dora. Yeah, I'm not to fond of that hopefully in the next couple of months that'll wear off:)
We moved the boys the boys downstairs so now Addie is in the upstairs bedroom by herself. It took her a couple of nights to get used to sleeping with out her brothers. As you can see, she's ready for her sister.

The boys are enjoying their new room for the most part. Caleb had a bad dream the first night and it's been hard for him to fall asleep ever since (something crazy about an owl pecking his knee). During the day they love it. Having all of their toys in one place is great. Here's some


  1. She's so cute with her doll ... that's awesome

  2. Cute pictures! At least Dora's a little more mainstream than our Diamond. Over the weekend someone that I don't even know well had the audacity to tell me that Diamond sounded like a stri**er name (insert "p"s--I don't even like to type it!). I must admit that I was seriously offended--as if it was our baby's actual name. :-) It's silly I know but she's that much a part of our girls' lives already. Enjoying your blog.

  3. Addie is so sweet with her baby. And the boys room looks great and fun! Trevor is looking forward to playing with his cousins this weekend. Love you!!

  4. Your kiddos are adorable....You had yours close in age too...What are the age differences?? I did 21 months, 16 months, 25 months...and we'll hopefully know soon about #5 if we ever get this referral :) kj

  5. Those pics are great :o) So cool to see the excitement - already wanting to cuddle with "Dora."

  6. love the room! gotta love ikea... we are about to redo levi's room to make room for delaney, and we're planning on getting that same ikea bunk. nice to have some inspiration here.... :) and we are so excited for you guys.
