From the moment you entered this world, your eyes have mesmerized people. You were the first grandchild on both sides of the family and you have fully accepted that role. You are my drama queen, my diva, my rock star. Your personality is both dangerous and enviable. You make friends easier than any child I have ever known, yet you always return to your family and church friends as your faithful "go to's". Although it's your outer beauty that first attracts attention, it is your inner beauty that amazes people. I can't tell you how many teachers fight over who is going to "steal" you and take you home. Your sense of humor is outstanding and your eyes smile when you do. Your laugh is contagious and your smile heart melting. You can be sneaky and deviant sometimes, but that is just your Daddy coming out in you;-). You unfortunately inherited the "bare-minimum" gene, you all know the one: how can I do the bare minimum and still get by? I wished I could blame that on your Daddy too, but I think you were hit by a double dose of that one.

Bro. Buddy has recently been preaching some wonderful sermons on "singing with purpose." He most recently spoke on how we can teach and admonish one another through our hymns. He also taught how it is not the mechanics of singing that is important, but what is on your heart. Which is comforting to me since I can't carry a tune in a bucket, but I do love to sing. So as you can see the timing was perfect for the sing. I had a video of everyone singing, but I think the file is too large to post on here! Sorry, you'll just have to enjoy the pictures and hum some hymns to yourself while reading:-)

Abbey: Dear Lord, thank you for this day. Thank you for our food and our church and our families. Please be with everyone who is sick and make them all better. Please help Lindsey and Baby Joshua and Baby Cunningham be strong healthy babies. Please help us to be as good as you, God. Thank you for all my toys and my swimming pool. Please forgive us for our sins and trespasses (I don't think she really knows what she is saying here...we're still working on it). Thank you for everything you have given us! In Jesus name we pray. Amen!
