Babies, Beauties, BBQ, and Bibles

That sums up a lot of what's been happening here!
Jenna loves her new baby doll. It was given to Laura almost 6 years ago, but, Laura has never fancied baby dolls. So, after sitting on a shelf for as long, this baby now has some lovin'!

And our newest beauty...in her shades. Her little nose doesn't quite hold them onto her face, but she's adorable anyway! Now, if we could just get rid of this detestable snow and get some beach weather...she'd be all set.

Yes...after a teaser week of sun and higher-than-frigid-temps which melted nearly every snowflake, we got hit again. But that didn't stop Jamie from grillin' some burgers for us Sunday night.
They tasted soooo good!

And my oldest, who has always been an avid reader, finished reading the Bible (New Living Translation) in one year.
He was very happy, and let out a big sigh..."I did it!"
His favorite books: 1 & 2 Kings, 1 & 2 Chronicles, Job, & Revelation
(He likes history and battles!)
His least favorite: Leviticus & Numbers
(I concur!)

Love is a big baby doll lover too...so much fun to watch little Mommy skills :)

The shades are too cute!

Woo Hoo! Way to go Jacob! What version did he use? That is quite an accomplishment :)

Very cool that your oldest read the entire bible, as he doesn't look very old!!!

Glad the baby is getting some loving. One of our daughters never cared for baby dolls only stuffed animals so the babies are now getting lot of use in our home as well!!!

Wow, good for Jacob! I'm still working on that and I have been for 3 years! I'm not even close - only on Exodus :(. what's worse is he's 2 or 3 years younger. Anyway, love your lil' darlin's shades. Teaching sense of style early ;) - don't get no better. And, by the way, feel free to switch spots with me! Florida is plenty sunny but it's not yet at the sweltering temps (yet those are very soon to come.) I could use some weather that doesn't involve armpit sweat lol.
