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.

Dear Mary:
A flower girl! How exciting! I know you will do a great job.
You are also doing a great job as a big sister, teaching your little brother all kinds of things.
I loved the pictures of you in the pool, it looks like you are having a lot of fun. You have been very busy, thanks for letting us share your activities.
Love, Jan & the Whitcher family

Hi Mary,
I'm sorry I haven't written in a while, we too have been quite busy with moving. It looks as though you are having a great summer and enjoying your new baby brother. You are getting so big! I loved hearing you play the triangle in your video post! Maybe you'll follow in your Grandma Martha and Great-Grandma Mary's footsteps and be an accomplished musician! Keep having fun! You're always in my prayers.
Love,
Rebecca, Brad and Addison Pollitt

You are amazing, Mary! I'm so excited for all your new tricks! It was so great to hear your little voice on the phone yesterday. Give your mommy, daddy and Jackson big hugs from us too!
