So Rory just looked at Tate and said with a sigh, "I just love to dance. Do you, Tate?" He replies, in typical Tate fashion, with a "No!" and an enthusiastic head shake of Yes. They then proceed to dance all around the living room together. First with both hands connected spinning in silly circles. Then, slow...the "Princess" dance, as Rory calls it. Then finally, a crazy wild running/dancing that involves a lot of laughing and falling.

I love my kids.

Devin and Amanda.

One of the biggest blessings in Tucker and my life is the student ministry at Carpenter's. We have an amazing group! These teens work hard, play hard and love deeply. We're honored to know them.

Anyway. One of the sweetest things the teens do is watch our children from time to time. It's a gift to us, and we're extremely thankful for the date nights it has allowed. You don't get many of those once kids come along!

They come to our house and have fun with our children, our sidewalk chalk and our driveway, our whiteboard and our markers, any paper of ours that they can find, and apparently, our camera.

I just downloaded pictures off of the camera for the first time in awhile. And found this.
Didn't think I'd post that, huh? (Wish I had pictures of the rest of the fancy artwork left at my house...)

Just so you know, not only are Devin and Amanda devastatingly photogenic* and artistic, but they totally rock. Thanks girls!

*They actually are. You know, when not making silly faces into my camera. Beautiful inside and out!
