And yes, Kyle is smiling while knowing I'm in the picture. :P
Meet my snowman, Snowman. Aren't his rosy cheeks sweet?
Ah! Here's Mommy's. We all agreed it was cute! AND that it must have been electrocuted at one time or another.
Wonder where he gets that sweet tooth from......
And Daniel definitely won most creative, cause as you can see.... it is!
But we loved it all the same! He did great, and had a lot of fun.
We played games for prizes, too. Daniel won a pen that had a Santa on the end of it. When you pressed a button it would shoot off. And I'm sure the Inmans had no idea that to a little, 4 year old boy this suffices for a weapon...

Aunt Tara, when we were doing our crafts there was a little boy who was next to me. He asked me if he could have the marker when I was done. I literally had to do a double take he reminded me of Abe so much! That kind of brought me down a bit, since I knew if you all were here, you'd have gone with us..... *sob*

I mean, of course it would have more Dr. Seuss absurdities, but as far as real goes, this was really fun!
Daniel was our "map guy," and even hitched a ride on top of Kyle while directing. Daniel had lotsa fun; Kyle on the other hand didn't so much appreciate being thwapped on the head with the map every two seconds. I guess that's where being cute comes in handy, huh?
There was this really fun bird migration game we got to play, too! And no, Justin's not bowing. He's "pecking twenty times." We had to visit all these check points where they would give you directions on where to go next or what to do next. The best part was having to "die dramatically." Elise and I were the best at that!
We even got Kyle to play! But contrary to popular belief, he didn't win right away. He was eaten by a cat, had to start over, then he won.
We saw giraffes, too, but we're pretty spoiled when it comes to these guys. (Cheyenne Mountain's exhibit's way better.) But Denver tops them with their sea lion show! I now have another favorite animal. Her name's Lucy; isn't she cute?
We had a lot of fun, and we made tons of fun memories. But next time Daddy has to go with us!

I love her lots.
And I thought I might note that the day I got Daisy was a day God let a dream of mine come true. I've been hoping and praying for a Golden that I was just sure I was gonna name Daisy, since.... Yep, since a while ago. And I'm so grateful God chose to send one more joy to a wretch like me.
And, oh! is she a joy!
We've just finished moving out of our house into a house across the street.
My cousins have lived there for about 4 years, and will now be making a military-move to "Abalama." The Lord saw fit to bless us by selling our home (He is good!), and we will now be renting their house, while we look for somewhere to buy.
So it won't be a really hard transition, since it's already like a second home. Complete with memories of water gun fights, barbeques, planting hundreds of trees, game nights, and sleepovers. :)
And while I miss our home, I try to keep thoughts of discontentment out of my head. Because, really, I have no room to complain! I'm not even leaving the neighborhood I love; the one I asked the Lord to keep me in for at least one more summer (thank you Jesus!).
And God sold our house in a market that predicted otherwise. He only had us wait 3 months, too!
So if you hear me whining.... scold!

Today we had a picnic with all of our Reformation folks, and I loved it so much! Volley ball and frisbee and watermelon; doesn't get much better than that! No really, it was a wonderful day of fellowship with all the friends we love so much, and I'll be asking Mrs. S to send me some pics so I can post 'em.
A few of the highlights:
-Got to just sit and talk with Emmie; loved it!
-Was "agressive" and actually went for the ball. (We'll get there Annina!)
-Learned that I actually knew how to throw and catch a frisbee. Who knew! (Not me..)
-Watched Daniel (not ours) and Mr. R hit awesome home runs.
-Got to hold and feed Jenna for 10 minutes before she started bawling. (Teething. It's not me!)

We were sitting in the service, and Daniel was on my lap flipping through his Bible. Pastor got to a point where he said, "So a couple prays and prays, and the Lord finally blesses them with a child. They praise God, and say, 'Glory to Him, God is good!' Then two years later their little child gets hit by a car and is taken from them. Are they then to conclude that God is not good?"
Then Daniel proved he is a listener. He looked up with the most sweet, enthusiastic, and postively sure face, and said,
"Rachel, God is good."
