Today is Sarah Grace's due date. She celebrated by going to spend the day at our church family retreat. Hannah Kate & Micaiah especially enjoyed it & Sarah Grace & Mommy are exhausted. Thanks to everyone for not breathing on her!! :)
The kids made a prayer rock to put on their pillow to remind them to pray. HK said, "Why did Miss Jenna say I would hit my head on a rock?! I don't want to do that! That would hurt!"

During Bible time tonight:
-We started singing Blue Skies & Rainbows & Micaiah sang "no! Song!" the whole time because he wanted to sing "song" aka "Trust & Obey."
-We started singing "There's Not a Friend" & Hannah Kate started singing, "There IS a friend like the 'holy' Jesus." We stopped & I explained that the song means He's the best friend we could have & she said, "No. I want to have other friends too." We continued singing & she sang that the whole time & said, "There IS a friend & God made them!"

We went to "camp" for the day for our church family retreat. Hk quotes:
When it was announced that we were going to sing "There's Not a Friend"- she said "but I DO have friends!"
When I told her we were going to listen to Mrs Becky teach us (ladies), "but she is NOT a preacher!"
After sitting in Brittany's hammock, "how can we make a hammock? I know, get some 'terial (material) & 2 trees. Where can I get that, Mom?!"

More info coming soon, but Micaiah's birthday project will be NICU Thanksgiving Care Bags again. We were told recently what a hit they were with the families last year, so we are hoping to make enough for every family again (around 20). Suggested items: individually wrapped snacks/candy (stock up during Halloween sales!), pocket size hand sanitizer/lotion/tissues/note pads, pens, & receiving blankets. We will also gladly accept monetary donations to go towards these purchases. Last year, we had an amazing response including enough money to purchase a few Cracker Barrel gift cards for Thanksgiving meals. Thank you for helping us celebrate Micaiah's birthday this way & show God's love to these families in need!
