all our extra time!!!

so belated in new updates. its all the 'extra' time this mommy of 3 has! {smile}

here's a family update

IM BORDERING ON OVERPOSTING for this blog update...

LILLIAN DREW is doing great!!

still loves preshcool ..! still dressing up as a princess...andy was quick to remind me that i seem to have genetically passed on love of the 'wardrobe change'

....i was quick to deny it until i realized he was right. .

we laughed this week about our kids 'nicknames'. . we used to call lillibug 'stinky face'. . mostly because for the 1st 7 months of her life she spit up!!

. . .my sweet girl. . who is such a big helper and my little 'cooker'....love me some lillibug!


....is HUGE! and amazing!

i love having a baby boy smack in the middle of my girls!

he's 16months. .

he is ALL BOY and so tough. . . climbs and falls off of everything..mostly head first..

gets right back up and keeps going!

we've yet to cut his hair that is bordering on 'mullet-ish'. . but i can't bring myself to do it

i seriously could eat my liam boy on a spoon...a really big spoon.

i am so thankful God has made him strong and tender hearted


our furry baby

had to do a bella girl photo...realized i've never blogged about her

i have always love the 'idea' of a dog...we've had bella for 5 years..

but didn't realize how i totally despise cleaning up after a lab...
all dog hair aside she's a great dog!


so. . . i turned 30 this past week. a decade I'm completely looking forward to!

so do i feel 30. . ?! NO.

i do however feel . . .

grateful and thankful for all God has poured out in my life!

I am highly favored by a God who meets my needs so specifically!

I am thankful of God's portion he allows me of himself , his grace and his provision.

I do feel that turning 30 has given me a sense of 'renewal' and excitement for what lies ahead.

an awareness in this crazy, sweet, rich season in our life that is passing so quickly

I am jumping back into leading worship!! i've been on a brief hiatus... to have 2 babies!

I am so excited about it. its a place I truly meet the Lord in such an intimate way!

my hope is to start playing the piano again. . .


he'll have to blog about himself! not really.

andy's great. has recently been invited to join a local cycling team for next race season. . . something we're really excited about!


lucy is 6 weeks old!! she's such a yummy baby! minus the growth spurt feeding frenzies she is as laid back as our other two were! we're starting so see smiles and fat rolls!

'crazy baby eyes'

busy busy bees!!

the last couple of weeks have been busy juggling babies!
so here's a catch up on what we've been up to
This Wednesday was Lillian's first day of preshcool!!!
We spent the summer talking about new baby's arrival and preschool!! of course she had to pick out a new lunchbox with princesses on it!
Tuesday night we packed her lunch together and laid out her clothes! she was so excited. . . we loaded everyone in the car and droped our lillibug off...she was all smiles..and waved goodbye
when we picked her up several hours later...
she hopped in the car and said..'mommy I had the best time ever!!'
she was really sad she didn't get to go back this morning....

Cinderella road to school with us and waited for lillibug in her carseat!
the next 2 photos were taken by my sweet friend sharon clark {smitten photography}
she captured some really sweet moments of Lucy
if you arent a smitten photography blog-stalker then you should become one
she is amazing behind the camera. . . i mean she amazing without the camera too. . . but really gifted eye for photography!!!
