Sunday Song

Revelation Song

Worthy is the, Lamb who was slain
Holy, Holy, is He
Sing a new song, to him who sits on
Heaven's mercy seat

Holy, Holy, Holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
Who was, and is, and is to come
With all creation I sing
Praise to the King of Kings
You are my everything
And I will adore You

Clothed in rainbows, of living color
Flashes of lightning, rolls of thunder
Blessing and honor, strength and glory and power be
to You the only wise King

Holy, Holy, Holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
Who was, and is, and is to come
With all creation I sing
Praise to the King of Kings
You are my everything
And I will adore You

Filled with wonder, awestruck wonder
At the mention of your name
Jesus your name is power
Breath, and living water
Such a marvelous mystery

Holy, Holy, Holy
Is the Lord God Almighty
Who was, and is, and is to come, yeah
With all creation I sing
Praise to the King of Kings
You are my everything
And I will adore You

More randoms

Here are some more random pics from the last week or so...

Sleepy heads

This is how I found Silas when I came back into the room on Monday morning. He was on his back when I left him... :)

Now he will hardly stay on his back! He also figured out how to roll while swaddled, so we had to stop swaddling him and he was not very happy about that for a couple of nights. Now he's good with it because he just rolls to his tummy, cries for a minute or two, and then settles in for some good sleep in his new sleep sack. We are working on teaching him to roll from his tummy to his back, and he did it all by himself this afternoon so yay!

He is definitely an active sleeper. I love this picture - he started out with his head facing the right and in his stabilizer and this is how I found him when I went to get him up. :) He was awake, not sleeping with his face in the mattress.

Now he sleeps on his tummy without the stabilizer.

Micah loves him :)

Sweet snuggle-bunny.

Playing with the tissue paper and grinning at Daddy

She'll be coming around the mountain

A few weekends ago we spent a little time in the mountains of north Georgia (Suches, GA) with our good friends the Mays and the Cardozas. It was a wonderfully relaxing time. We didn't leave the house, and with 5 kids under 4 that was probably a good idea. We ate yummy food, played games, soaked and LAUGHED in the hot tub, attempted to catch non-existent fish, played ping pong and air hockey on the world's smallest ping pong/air hockey table (and got sore from it), laid around and read in front of the fire, and just generally had a grand ol' time. The Mays and Cardozas started the tradition before I moved here and I'm so glad they let us in on the fun. It's something we look forward to every year.

The view across the river

The house. Yes, that is like 5 stories of stairs. Maybe more.

The view from the porch - that's Justin trying to catch the oh-so-elusive trout that are supposedly in that river.

See? It IS the smallest ping pong table ever. And just so you know, I am good at very few things that are even slightly athletic (just let me think that ping pong requires some athletic ability) but I actually am pretty good at ping pong and it makes me happy. I beat Sarah (who wouldn't let Zach keep the score out loud), Leslie, and Justin, but was defeated by Matt, who plays ping pong like it's real tennis. He's kinda fierce. I didn't get to play Zach, but I'm fairly certain I would have beaten him as well. :PI grew up playing a card game called Canasta (actually I think it's a version of Canasta called Argentina) with my family and Justin and I taught it to the Mays last year and we taught the Cardozas our last night in the mountains. It was great fun and VERY entertaining. Matt and Leslie are a HOOT! This is how Leslie held her cards. :)

Our little group. Zach, Sarah, Micah, Connor, Matt, Leslie, Isabella, William, Justin, Silas, and me.

I'll decide when the Tutee has been Tuted!

I'm watching Saved By the Bell: The College Years and Screech just yelled that at Zach. Seemed as good a title as anything.

I thought I'd share a few pictures since I haven't done that in a while. Silas and I have had many lazy days lately and it's been wonderful.

Ok - so maybe it's not a FEW pictures. A lot. A whole lot. :) And they are in no particular order because I am lazy.

Lovin' on Daddy and holding that head up!

The Three Muskateers - Connor (5 months), Silas (3 months), and William (12 months)

Pops and the babies. Yes, Fifi counts.

With Uncle Doug

This is my lifetime friend Holly. We were born a day apart in the same hospital and have been friends our entire lives. She just had a gorgeous baby girl, Emma Claire, last week (a week after this picture was taken). I can't wait to see them again at Christmas!

Swinging with Mamay (MuMAY)

With Great MeeMee and PaPa

This is my cousin Matt. He's a sophomore in high school and is 6'9" and growing. Yes, he plays basketball and is awesome. He makes me feel TINY.

My brother Doug and his girlfriend Rachael. I really like her. Really really. :)

With his Great DD

That was a lot - hope you stuck with it til the end!

We spend last weekend in the mountains with the Cardozas and Mays and I'll have pictures to share of that as soon as Zach SENDS THEM TO ME. :P

Happy Friday!
