Serving in Louisiana

Aaron is away this week serving his heart out in Louisiana. He, Mark, Dave and John left from our house Saturday morning at 7:15 am. They are having a nice time together, but they are working very hard. They have been able to meet the people whose homes they are working on, which puts more of a personal touch on what they are doing. They are staying at a church and roughing it a bit. I have been told the showers are outside and quite an interesting experience. Please pray for these men who are serving the Lord in this very needy area of our country. Aaron said the devastation is amazing and they haven't even seen the worst part yet. That is to come. Rest assured that Aaron will post more about his trip when he gets home. Until then, your prayers are so welcomed and appreciated. Pray for the safety of these guys, as well as for the people they are encountering and helping. Thank you!

New Adventures With Autumn

Autumn mastered two things last week: standing and emptying the cupboards. Here's proof of both. She is growing up so fast. It's amazing that she will already be 1 year old this Sunday. We praise God for this past year. He has done so many miracles in her little life. He does so much for all of us each and every day. Thank you, Lord!

We had a band by the name of 'Atlantic' stay a week with us in the beginning of September. One night, they hung around with us for a bit. Here is what our wonderful daughter talked them into doing for her. Can you say lots of "bling?" These guys are great sports!

Brownie will do anything to get Jayna to talk to him. You never looked better Brownie!

Aaron even got into the pink and the jewerly.

Doesn't Drew look good in his pink choker?

Nate is having a great time, can't you tell?!?! It was a fun night!

First Day of School

Well, we're off and running...back to school. Here are some pictures of our beautiful 1st grader's first day. She is loving the 1st grade. Her teacher is wonderful, and many of her friends are in her class. She even loves getting homework every night. She is growing up so fast. We are so blessed by her.

She posed for this one herself. I think she is going to be a photographer someday because she knows just how everyone should pose.

Here's Jayna and Autumn at Grandma's with Riley (Grandma's neighbor and a friend to us all).

Can't forget the traditional getting on the bus pose.
