KP Turned 4!

It is hard to believe she is 4!  Time really does go too fast.  I am trying to remember, as I have been advised by some pretty wise senior adults in my church, that these are the Golden Years and to enjoy every moment.  These moments are passing too quickly!  My little girl can start school next year… what?!?!?
We had a small gathering of our family and a couple of friends from church.  KP mainly wanted cake (She is like her Mom) and then she wanted Henna Tattoos.  Those are something she has seen a lot about because of our time in India, as well as we have friends that use it to tell Bible Stories as evangelism.
This girl lights up our lives.  She is very independent, sassy and sweet.  She is very smart and she knows what she wants and she goes after it!
I am honored to be her Mom, and I can’t wait to see where God leads her!  


As KP was snacking on Edamame, she asked, “Do they make Eda-Daddy too?”

He is Risen Musical at TBC

This year are church hosted and participated in a community wide Easter production called “He is Risen”.  It was held the weekend prior to Easter, and there was a full house every night.  I had the privilege of choreographing the angels dance…they were four of my girls from Manchester School of Dance.

Fun Weekend

We celebrated a friend MariJo’s birthday Barbie style and …

The boys went hiking/camping.

Letterbox Adventures

 We recently discovered the fun adventure of letterboxes.  We are just amateurs now, but I think we will have our own family stamp soon, and will be visiting more and more letterboxes in the near future.

Chics and Chocolate

I had the wonderful privilege of sharing at Chics and Chocolate at a another church in our community.  I was able to share about my passion for missions and for the country of India.  Another for Miss SC, and pastor’s wife in TN, Vickie Leavell was the main speaker and she was awesome!  I wish I could have hung out with her longer!

Dance Classes

This month, I started teaching dance classes in a new location at The Spot in Morrison.  We have had a great turn out and my little KP takes here too 🙂
