Each member of our family is so different, like individual components of a symphony. But, like a symphony, each part is important to the overall structure and sound of the piece. We all work together to make a beautiful sound...our family. Just as the Lord knit us together in the womb, He is now knitting us together as a family, for His glory, outside the womb.

A Welcomed Visitor

Today, we had a pleasant visit from my dad, aka "Crap-pa". I told Cadence he was coming last night and she was so excited. She immediately got out her paper and markers and drew him a picture, mostly of "Shepherd's sticks".

My dad made this awesome dress-up wardrobe for her to put all her dress-up clothes in. My initial idea was to just convert a cardboard box into a closet, which my dad took and improved upon. Cadence loved it! She went straight away to gather up all her dress-up clothes and hang
them in her new wardrobe.

He also brought me a sweet crisp. Delicious! I love apple crisp. I can't wait until the summer when the kids and I can gather up our neighbors apples again and make apple pie bars. Yummy! His visit didn't end there, though. He took the kids and I out to a scrumptious lunch at Coopersmith's Pub and Brewery, in Old Town. They have my favorite burger there. There was a group next to us with a ton of kids. Two of the babies were 7 month old twins, a boy and a girl. They sure do eat well. They looked bigger than Aria. After that, we took a stroll around the square before heading back home. What a great day and visit! I love getting to see my dad, he's a great man!

Thanks, dad! We love you!
