Chloe's Tooth

Chloe lost her first top front tooth. She looks so cute and we are calling her snaggles. The tooth was jus barely hanging in there and finally came out when she was brushing her teeth before bed. Here is her picture

Creative Arts Camp

Parker and Chloe attended Creative Arts Camp this week at Northbrook Church and they loved it. The kids were able to choose from a variety of arts - boomwhackers, interpretive dance, drama, banner art, etc. Their favorite was the dance. The kids all got to participate in the worship service this morning. It was really amazing. They were learning all week about how to use their gifts to glorify God. Here are two videos of the practice before the worship service. I like filming practices because then I get to really watch the real thing.

A trip to the Farmer's Market with Chloe

This morning Chloe wanted to go with me to the farmer's market. She also went with me last week. She loves it - mainly because I let whoever goes with me pick out a treat and she enjoys a treat more than any kid I know. Anyway, here is her funny comment of the day....

After visiting the Mennonite booth to get chocolate milk, Chloe said, "Mommy, why do they always dress up like they are poor?"

So, apparently in Chloe's mind, the Mennonite people come across as not poor but they just dress like they are poor. I think this warrants a lesson in history, different religious views and maybe even a trip to visit the Mennonite farm.

And for her treat today - a chocolate, chocolate chip muffin....mmmmm.

12 Years and counting

Happy Anniversary to us! Tomorrow is our anniversary, but we are celebrating tonight because tomorrow is Sunday. It seems like the time has been so short, but also like it has always been. I know I have said it before many times, but I really do have the sweetest, most thoughtful husband in the world. I am in love with him now more than ever. I had to post a picture of one of my favorite presents. The picture speaks for itself...
