God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

Video of Our Girl

Here's a short video of our little big girl.  She is pretending to read her "Bible" and tell me about Jesus when he was a little baby.  Pure sweetness!

A Picture Says It All

I know you have been wondering how AG has been recooperating at home.  Rather than tell you, I'd like to just show you.  They say a pciture's worth a thousand words, so..... here are a few thousand!  Enjoy!


Saturday & Sunday this weekend we decided to enjoy the beautiful warm Southern December we are having and get outdoors.  It's what you do when you're in quarantine and you're tired of looking at the same four walls.  While there are a few other people on the trails the risk of germ exposure is pretty low since there is not really anything anyone is touching so it is about as germ free an outing as you can get.  The boys went biking and the girls went hiking and we met up along the way.  Even though AG is getting too big for the pink car she insited we take it.  I don't think she can use it much longer though because she is just too big!
 
 

Before the boys took off on their bikes Zachary was kind enough to smile for me.  He was itching to get on the trail though.
 
 
 

Dad finally got the truck locked up and met us at the trailhead for a family picture.  They were trying to be silly, I'm not sure if you can tell but they are all sticking out their toungues :)
 
 
 

Here they are all giggling after taking a picture with their tongues sticking out, they thought it was soooo silly!
 
 
 
 

 After the boys took off AG and I started hiking.  She did not want to ride in the pink car and insisted on walking.  This is a big change from before surgery when she was always on my hip during a hike.  We found a tree stump and she was on the hunt for ladybugs.  We didn't find any on this tree stump though.
 
 



Still looking for ladybugs!
 
 
 

Then AG took off running with me trailing behind her running with the pink car yelling, "slow down, don't you want to ride in the car?????  Can I hold you????  "  She never stopped, she just kept running and giggling.  I think she loved the fact that she could just go and go like she never could before.  I however was very nervous about the fact that she just had open heart surgery 3 1/2 weeks ago.  The doctor assured me she would "self regulate" at this age and she would rest when tired.... hmmm... not sure if that applies to our little one!
 
 
 
 

 So we met up with the boys again on the trail here.  They zoomed by us on their bikes.  Zachary is really getting pretty agile on his bike.
 



 While crossing the bridge we finally found the coveted and elusive ladybug.  She was so happy and carried that thing around on her hand and arm for at least 30 minutes.
 



 Zachary crossed the next bridge with the intention of pushing his bike up the "big" hill so that he could ride down the steep part.  He is getting a little daring!
 



 Here he is pushing his bike up the hill.
 



Here he goes zooming down the hill. Not scared one bit, he loved every second of it!
 
 
 
 
 Then of course AG wanted to go up the big hill.  Daddy carried her up on his shoulders, but she wanted to RUN down it all by herself, which she did.




After running down the big hill she sat down in the grass for about 5 minutes for a rest.  You can see she has a smile on her face.  She had a blast!
 
 
 

 Zachary loved riding his bike on the trails.




 After venturing down the trail a bit more the boys found another big hill to climb.  There was no way bikes were going up this hill.  Zachary went first.....




And then of course little sister had to follow so Daddy went with her holding her hand to keep her safe.
 
 
 
 

After all the hiking and biking we headed home and here is where you finally get to see me giving my big brave girl some kisses.  Zachary is the camera man for this shot.  He did a great job didn't he?
 
 
 
Not to be remiss in sharing a very monumental detail in Zachary's life...... he lost his first tooth.  Bottom left.  He's a big kid now!
 
 
 
 
 

Here's a close up!
 
 
 

All showered and cleaned up after the big adventure!
