A Visitor from Hattiesburg

Our precious cousin
Our precious cousin from Hattiesburg sent us a visitor. She is in K-5 and has been reading about Flat Stanley at school. Flat Stanley is a storybook character that travels around the country. Each child in her class had to choose somebody to mail their Flat Stanley to. Our precious cousin wanted to send him to her cousins in Nashville. So, he is going to stay with us for about a week and enjoy all the things we do around Nashville. We have made a really big deal out of this and can't wait to mail him back to our precious cousin and tell her all about what Flat Stanley did in Nashville.

Spring Break

We traveled to Big and Pie's for spring break. Of course it is always so much fun. We spend almost every afternoon riding bikes, playing at the sandbox, and jumping on the trampoline. Spiderman even got to enjoy a picnic with Pie. We traveled to Oxford to visit our Cooper Tyner cousins. They had a great time playing at the park. It is so much fun getting to see our family. We had a fun time visiting with our Rob Tyner cousins in Clarksdale as well. What a blessing it is to have all these cousins.

Just Being a Boy!

It was a cold and rainy Saturday! What a perfect day to build a fort! Daddy has shared a few childhood memories of building them. Boys love forts!! So, he built one for Turbo! Oh, and he loved it!! He loved it so much that he slept in it!! And I enjoyed a cup of coffee in it on Sunday morning! And I feel sure that this won't be the last time we build a fort!

Painting Easter Eggs

We are having a good time celebrating this Easter season. While reading the Easter story to My Precious Son the other night he asked why those mean men were carrying off his Jesus? I sat for a minute with tears filling my eyes. Wow! "Well, my son, it was all part of God's plan. Jesus died on the cross to save our sins. He died for you, me, Daddy, sister, and everyone else in the whole world. When we celebrate on Easter Sunday we are celebrating Jesus Resurrection!" Now I don't know if that was the best explanation for a four year old but what I do know is that it is the truth! So, as we celebrate this Easter season let's celebrate the truth that we have in Jesus!! He is our Rock and our Savior!! He was crucified for everyone of us! He suffered for you and for me! Wow! All so we could one day spend eternity with Him!!

Tyner's First Soccer Season!

While I was away at a Women's Retreat with my mom and two dear friends, Turbo had his first soccer game! Practices started a few weeks ago and he is really enjoying it. His team is the Bumble Bees. I love the picture of My Precious Daughter- Daddy even put a bow in her hair! Daddy said Turbo played really well and loved every minute of it!

Verse of the Week

Our verse this week is Luke 2:9-11. "An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a SAvior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.

Biblical Virtues to pray for my children

"God, please cultivate in Tyner and Maggie the ability to show true humility toward all."
