There is a story behind this shirt. . . Let me just say, I did NOT pick it out. We had to return an outfit that Sara got for Christmas, so I told her she could pick out another outfit in exchange. So, we walked around the clothing racks looking at clothes and she saw the pink and green sleeve of this shirt. "Cute," I thought, "nice choice Sara," but then I pulled the shirt off the rack and saw the front. "UMMM. . .let's keep looking peanut, okay?" So, we continue on our search and we end up back at the same rack and Sara picks the SAME shirt. . . SO, by this time Matt had come back with Silas(they were doing the same in the boys' section) and I showed him the shirt. He thought it was fine, "Nic, she's THREE." Okay, so I let her get the shirt and then I picked out these ADORABLE jeans to match. They must go together b/c they are the same brand and the colors are PERFECT! Anyway, it is a cute outfit, but I have always hated the shirts that say things like, "cutie pie", "aren't I cute?" etc . . . so, I wasn't too sure about this one. I will say though--plenty of people have commented-ughh! Even Sara will say, "have I been very, very good?" HMM. . .Speak the truth in love, right?!

To know Him is to love Him. . .that is how I would describe my husband. I am frequently told by people how spoiled I am by my husband and they are right. I know his thoughtfulness and love is something I often take for granted! Matt is selfless in so many ways that make my life so much easier. He is a wonderful husband and an awesome daddy! He loves the Lord and He loves His family. He treats me far better than I deserve and expects nothing in return. He is actively involved in his children's lives, by reading to them, playing with them, bathing them, changing diapers, and watching them for me so I can have time away with friends. If my day has been busy and stressful, and I have not had time in God's Word, he will keep the kids occupied so I can have my quiet time. He works hard, and puts in long hours so that I can be home with our children. His day does not end when he comes home from work. He continues to give of himself to each of us. I have been truly blessed by this gift from God and I am so thankful for another day to celebrate our life together. I love you Bub!

Matt is the athletic director at the Christian school that he teaches at, so even when he's not coaching, he still has responsibilities at school. I try to find "fun" things for the kids to do with me on the nights that he is unable to come home until late. Sara LOVES coloring with markers, but since Silas is still learning to keep them OFF himself and ON the paper, they are, according to Sara, a special activity. I have some video clips that I will post later.
This picture was not posed. . .Sara was laying on the floor watching a movie and Silas decided to join her. They laid there for a quite a while just watching the movie. Yes, Sara was probably so engrossed in the movie she didn't even think twice about the fact that Silas was laying on her, but I thought it was sweet anyway.
