I am slowly updating pics from the summer on here....Here are a few with our friend/cousin Abbie! Jennifer and I have been friends since high school and then became college roommates and then on to be each other's maid of honor....I think of her as my sister! Anyways, I love her and her sweet family and I miss them tons! someone needs to move up here! :)

Jackson became a believer a few months ago (in fact we aren't sure when, when it all came up he said he already been a believer and loved Jesus a long time ago and after a trip to TX, there was no denying his feelings for our Lord.), and he couldn't wait to get baptized! We kept telling him we had to plan it in advance in case family wanted to come and we were so thrilled with how everything went. The most special part was that Dave got to baptize Jackson. He gave a quick heartfelt few words with a little humor of course. It was so wonderful and I know that it blessed Dave so much to do that with our firstborn son.
Then we had a nice cookout with some friends and family at the house after the service. Considering it has been over 100 degrees for around 45 days, the break in heat (just 2 days before!) and nice breeze made for a perfect meal outside! It really was a wonderful day!

This past weekend Jackson was baptized and it was a very special weekend!
Paw Paw, Mam Maw, Grand Daddy and Granny all came in for the special occasion.
Roger and Judy were also a part of the special weekend, they are family to us as well! We had a great weekend and another post to come about the actual baptism soon!
