Lots of Visitors and an Announcement!!!

Believe it or not, things have been a little hectic in our house.

Mary is doing well and teaching Jackson lots of things. Here she is giving him a music lesson . . . if you look closely you can see she is telling him EXACTLY how to do it. Mary has become quite the talker lately. Her new favorite word is "uh-oh!!" It is really funny, if Jackson starts crying, Mary bursts out with an "Uh-Ohhhh!!
We just had to put this picture of Mary and Elmo in here because it is SO cute!!!!

Mary also had a visit from our friends from Tennessee, Robert, Wendy, Jadon, and Emma. Mary had lots of fun showing off her new little brother and playing with her boyfriend Jadon.
Mary has also been doing very well in the pool lately. Here she is playing tug-o-war with Daddy.

We had a very nice visit from Mary's Uncle David right before he left for Iraq last week. He brought his fiance', Nicole with him. And now for the announcement . . . David and Nicole asked Mary to be the flower girl in their wedding next June!!! Mary is SO excited for this opportunity and so are we!!

Here is a picture of David, Nicole, Mary and Jackson.

Please say a prayer for Mary's Uncle David and Aunt Angie who are both serving in Iraq.

Thank you all for your continued support and prayers for Mary! Please also pray for all of Mary's friends.

Mary's Trip to the Fair!!!

Well much like everywhere else in the world summer means fair season here in Virginia. Mary got a special opportunity to go to the fair last week. Mary really enjoyed seeing all of the animals and hearing all of the animal sounds that she has been practicing so much.
She really enjoyed the cows and saying mooooooo, mooo, moooo!!!

Mary also got to pet bunnies and ducks. Here she is saying "quack"!!!
Mommy helped Mary make a very cool picture frame at the fair. Here is a picture of Kate concentrating very hard while gluing some pieces as Mary looks on and smiles . . .
Mary really liked the frame that her Mommy helped her make!
Mary got to ride on the "Mary"-go-round with her daddy. . . look at those smiles. . . I wonder who had more fun???Overall it was a great day, despite the heat, everyone had a great time! Mary can't wait to go back next year!!
