We are back!

Annaleigh and I made it back to Texas Thursday following Russell's return from Honduras Wednesday. I would love to post pictures of our trip, but my forgetful mind forgot to bring the digi-cam! We had a fun time visiting friends and family in Georgia and Virginia....and as a side note: if you can make it to GA or South Carolina in the next month, you MUST sample the peaches. They are AMAZING this year!
I was so thankful to be able to spend some time with three of my oldest and dearest friends. We had a very special time of prayer for our families that refreshed my spirt and renewed my sense of the importance of the power of prayer. I challenge you all to find prayer partners. It is a great way to be accountable to each other and to God and it is AWESOME to watch him work in your life and the lives of others as a result.
Annaleigh did ok on her second plane trip. She screamed a lot on the way there (much to the shegrin of the other passengers.) Thankfully, my prayers were answered on the way home and she was as good as gold! Thanks to everyone who kept our Honduras mission team in your prayers last week. Amazing things were done for God's glory!
Here are a few pictures we took today at the pool and at home....just kidding. Blogger isn't loading pictures right now. I will try again tomorrow.

I am a mamma's girl!

If you know me, you know I am a mamma's girl! I usually talk to my mom on the phone every day. I wasn't able to last week because she was at the beach and she is one of the only people left on this planet who has no cell phone! I went through some major withdraws. Thankfully I will get to spend the next 9 days with her. Mom has taught me so many lessons in life which include but are not limited to how to love EVERYONE unconditionally...Especially broken people, how to have a kind and generous spirit, and how to make even ordinary days fun. I truly hope that I will be able to pass these gifts down to my child as she has to me. Anyone else out there love their mama the same way I do??

Here are some recent pictures of my little munchkin. It's hard to believe she will be 4 months old on July 27th! We are having a fun summer traveling to see the grandparents in Georgia and San Angelo while Russell goes on youth trips. We will be going to Georgia again this Tuesday while Russell leads a group of 20 teens to Honduras. I am really looking forward to visiting with my oldest and dearest friend Beth who recently moved to the ATL. I also was suprised to learn today that another one of my best friends Amanda and her little boy will be at her parents while she is studying to take the BAR exam in just a couple of weeks. Hopefully she can carve out a few minutes to visit with me and Suzanna!
