Toothy!



Kara's been killin' us with this recent face. She loves to feel the new teeth coming in on top with the two teeth on the bottom! HeeHee =)

Daycare Center, PA

Just a few months ago, Travis and his good buddy, Dan, decided to head to a pastors' conference for a time of refreshement and encouragment. Dan's wife, Karis, and I figured that the week would be a lot more fun away from our husbands if we got together here at our house, so our kids could play. Just before the conference, however, I learned that my sweet friend, Carissa, would also be alone for the week since her husband was heading to the same conference. That is when the mayhem began! I decided to invite BOTH friends to my house along with EVERYONE'S kids. Carissa's blog gives the greatest description of last week. 7 kids ages 3 and under together for 3 days! Please check it out here. Here's some extra pictures from the week. It was absolutely crazy, and I think I am just now recovering, but I would definitely do it all over again for the wonderful privilege of spending time with my awesome friends and getting to know their beautiful children. Because of our plans to serve the Lord in 3 different parts of the world someday (us in Romania, Karis and Dan in Cameroon, and Carissa and Ben here for now), this was a very important time for me. Thank you so much for coming all this way just to be with us. I LOVE YOU, CARISSA and KARIS!

Belly Blowing and Tickle Tickle

video
Sam has really been enjoying Kara lately and has been blowing on her belly at diaper changing time. She totally LOVES it! It's so fun to watch them play together. Kara has really started babbling. She loves to make her tongue go in and out. It sounds like, "Tickle, tickle, tickle!" So cute! I'm glad I got some video of it, so I would never forget what it sounds like.
