Praise the Lord

Matt and I went to high school with Sean McConnell, who is the artist in this video. He has always been an incredible writer, but there are times when he comes out with a new song that just really hits us. This is definitely one of those songs. So if you have 4:37 to pause today, do. Because this. is. good.

Praise the Lord

Last weekend, Matt and I drove down to Orlando for some quality time with aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins. We wish we could have stayed for a week like we did for years through high school and college, but we made sure to cram as much as we could into two days!

Friday Night, Nanna and Grandpa took us to see Encore in Hollywood Studios. It was an incredible show made up of famous broadway songs set to a new script. We loved it!

Matt and Lynnea having some snuggle time. :) Lynnea was only 9 months old the first time we visited- crazy to see how fast time flies!

Frozen yogurt with Graham- love this guy! Graham was our first house guest last Easter. He'll be a junior at Ole Miss next year, which only reminds me of how old we're getting. Ugh!

Getting Lynnea ready for her piano recital. :)

Sweet girl made us welcoming signs for our late arrival Thursday night. ;)

After a wedding, Abby came to join in on the fun!

Beautiful Girls!


McKenna and Cody

Game night!

McKenna snapped some pictures with our camera...

She tried to catch me sharing a moment with Cody... haha, apparently I had just been right in his face talking to him- we wanted to take him home with us! I think we're switching our loyalty from a golden retriever to a shelty. One day?! :)

See? So cute!

We missed you, Alana!!

And just for old-times' sake:
Seems like only yesterday!

Good Times with Old Friends

Last weekend, Matt and I drove down to Carrolton, GA to visit with some great friends from high school. One of the many ;) advantages of being with Matt for as long as we have been together is sharing the same friends for the last 10+ years. Seeing him hang out with his guy friends from high school, some of whom he grew up with, is just fun to watch. And I feel so lucky to genuinely enjoy hanging out with their wives. We laughed, and talked, and laughed some more. AND, Kemble and Ashley's new home is absolutely beautiful!!! They did some big renovations over the past few months- it was so fun to get the tour! Not to mention the wrap-around porch and incredibly huge yard. Reminded me of our own yard- HAHAHA... not quite. Here are a few pics from the night!

I'm getting some QT with little Fisher. He is precious! Andrew and Allison are such natural parents- it was fun to see them with their new little one!

The guys playing Spike Ball

Burgers, fruit, chips, and banana pudding. Mmmmm.....

Welcome Teagan Leigh McGuire!

Little miss Teagan Leigh McGuire was born on Thursday, July 12th at 12:29pm! Andrea and Patrick, and all of Teagan's family (even her fake aunts and uncles ;)) are in love! She weighed in at 8lbs, 21in, and was born with more hair than most one-year-olds. She is beautiful!!

On Sunday, we brought dinner over to Andrea and Patrick's house. While we ate, Teagan slept in her nap nanny. After dinner, "Uncle Matt" got some snuggle time with her. :)

MAN he looks good with a baby! ;)

Happy new family waving goodbye! And yes, Andrea had that baby- she looks amazing!
