Our Blessing Number 2

Lilypie First Birthday tickers

We are all doing well!  Normally, I (Christa), would be posting from my parents place about now, but I am still here in Texas.  One of Daniel's sisters live in England, and she arrived on Monday, so, we are here spending some time with her!  

Joshua is growing more and more each day!  Each morning that I get him out of his bed, he greets me with a bright cheery smile and laugh!  He continues to be a joy to us.  He is walking everywhere, talking up a storm, getting into things that are new to him, and trying to help around with the chores.  He loves to get in Daniel's last drawer, take all Daniel's blue jeans out and try to re-fold and put them back in the drawer!  He also loves to take certain objects and acts like he is talking on the phone.  Of course he loves talking on the "real" phone too! :-)

This video was taken this evening right after dinner!!  Joshua was praying all by himself!! (Normally, after we get done praying and say "amen" he claps and giggles!)

He is getting way too big so very fast...maybe you could ask him to stop growing until we can see y'all again?!? :)

Give him big hugs and kisses for me!!

Love y'all and miss y'all so much!!

Looking forward to your next visit,

Auntie Lala

Christa and Daniel,

Y'all are making me proud! And, y'all are making me sad. I cannot tell you how much y'all are missed. But God is good. It is wonderful to see you raising Joshua in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

We pray for you often - and we miss you so much.

With love from all, and especially me,

Y'all are making me very proud. And y'all are making me very sad! This is a wonderful video. Thanks for sharing it. But I really would like to be there. How exciting to see you raising Joshua in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

You do not know how much you are missed here. How we look forward to the day when the Lord brings us together again.

With love from all,
