Time in Texas

Our main reason for going to Texas last weekend was so that we could speak about our experience with one of God's miraculous gifts, Jacob. We were asked to speak at Murray Street Church of Christ (click on the link to go to their site) and what a blessing it was for us to be there, worshiping with people that have been praying for Jacob for 2 & 1/2 years. These people are some of our biggest prayer warriors, and it was such a pleasure to meet them and thank them in person for their prayers. What a blessing to us. God is working in that church and we are honored to be a part of that. God is at work all around us, in our circumstances whether good or bad, and it is our joy to be able to see God and join in His work. If you are looking for God, you will find Him.
While we were there, we got to see family and celebrate my niece's 3rd Birthday too. Papa Bear and GJo were there too, and it was a wonderful time together! Enjoy the pictures...
Here's Jacob on the plane getting ready to take off! All buckled in!
We attended Uncle Josh's first Basketball game for a church league on Friday night. Jacob LOVES basketball and watched most of the game just like this...

Then, after the game Jacob played around with Papa Bear on the court. :)
Jacob loved being outside on Uncle Josh and Aunt Jamie's porch swing... So sweet!
Here's the cousins enjoying some time on the swing!
Saturday was Audrey's 3rd Birthday party. She LOVES princesses, so of course she had a princess themed birthday party, complete with a Cinderella Cake!
At the party, the kids decorated little crowns with a picture to go inside, and also colored from Disney's coloring books. This is such a sweet picture of Jacob and Audrey coloring together.
This is the birthday girl!!! So sweet!
For her birthday she got a princess tea set table and a pony to ride, among other princess like things. She loved it!
On her horse!
After the party Jacob and Audrey were playing with their characters from the show "Super Why," a favorite show around our house and apparently there too. Jacob has Wyatt and Audrey has Princess Pea. So cute!
Audrey was constantly bringing her Tea set chairs out into the living room for her and Jacob to sit next to each other. It was so sweet to watch them together. She would maneuver the chair so he could sit...so cute!
They spent some time outside before church on Sunday night...this is how they entertained themselves. Audrey easily ran circles around Jacob, but she would just grab his hand and walk with him everywhere. Precious. LOVE. THOSE. BOOTS!
Jacob laughing at Audrey...she had just climbed through the "V" in the tree.
Here we are all together. What special memories!
