Kiddo Pics

Time for a little picture catch-up!  I've had these pictures sitting on my computer since February, but haven't found the time to post them until now!  Enjoy a little glimpse of life at our house lately. :)

Sharing a snack of Cheerios together with Isaac happily supplying Josiah's tray with more every 10 seconds or so...

Love their matching positions here...

...and here!

Jo Jo Bear has been working hard on learning to sit up by himself!  As I said above, these pictures were taken in February when he still needed pillow support, but now he is quite the independent little sitter-upper!

Such a cutie-patootie with the sweetest smile!

Isaac loves to slide!  He has no fear of the height of any slide and will go down them all in a variety of positions.

Of course, it is especially fun to put rocks at the bottom and then slide into them.


The tunnel slide - his favorite!

One night, he put on Daddy's Superman cap like this and looked so cute, I had to take his picture...multiple times! :)

This is Isaac's new "frowny-face" that he gives when he wants to make people laugh.  It pretty much always works!

Yes, I realize this is a little too close to Josiah's face to be deemed a preferred angle, but he was looking so adorable, I had to take a picture, even just 10 inches away! :)

Stephanie's Tickled Pink Shower

In just a few weeks, we will be celebrating the first wedding at our church since we arrived 2 1/2 years ago!  It was fun to host a "tickled pink" shower for the bride last month!  Thanks to the busyness of life, I'm a little behind in posting pictures from the event, but here they are at last! (Photos compliments of Lindsay Hoover.)

The food and drink tables featuring chicken salad sandwiches, cheese and crackers, fruits and veggies, and lemon-raspberry cheesecake.

For drinks, we had pink raspberry lemonade, iced passion tea, and water.

Playing a customized Bridal Bingo all about Stephanie!

Two friends happy to see each other.

Playing the "Almost-Newly-Weds Game."  The groom's answers were featured via video.

Playing the "Apron of Advice" game.  For this, guests teamed up and were given envelopes containing 11-18 words cut from magazines.  From those words, they had to come up with some marital advice to be written on an apron for Stephanie.  It was fun to see their creativity!
