She is 4 going on 16. :)
And this is muffin #2 Kennedy Lynne
(she was named after me; our middle names are both Lynne. :))
What is not to love about this baby girl?
She is a precious, always smiling, happy, a bit on the stubborn and dramatic side :),
sweet little tiny that you just want to hug.

I love that we have special nicknames for each other like MFMIL and MFDIL
I want to wish her a HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
We love you so much and I am so blessed to be a part of SUCH a special,
loving, and wonderful family and that God chose YOU for my mother-in-law.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM GARLICH! :)
Have a fabulous day!
You are so loved!
I'm loving the following today (in no particular order of importance :))...
I think I need to link up to Jamie every Wednesday! This was fun. :)
So happy there are only 2 days to the weekend!

"The name of the Lord is a strong tower;
the righteous run to it and are safe."
This morning we sang a new song which I found out after looking it up it is actually an old hymn.
I love our worship team because we sing so many hymns but they revamp them.
I know the Lord wanted me to hear it this morning because it hit me right
when and where I needed it.
Tears began streaming down my face and He showed me
a little more of WHO He is.
He showed me that yes, we will face trials on earth
but it is all for his glory and our good.
And that He is guiding us along the way.
Soon, we will see Him face to face and it will all be worth it.
No more trials, no more pain.
But life forever in the presence of our Heavenly Father.
How am I going to live my short days here on earth?
Pining after the things of this world or living for His glory?
I want to choose you, Jesus.
I'll share several verses from Jesus, I my cross have taken...
Jesus, I my cross have taken
All to leave and follow Thee
Destitute, despised, forsaken
Thou from hence my All shalt be
Perish every fond ambition,
All I've sought or hoped or known;
Yet how rich is my condition!
God and heaven are still my own.
Go, then earthly fame and treasure
Come disaster, scorn, and pain!
In thy service pain is pleasure;
with Thy favor loss is gain.
I have called Thee Abba Father!
I have stayed my heart on Thee.
Storms may howl and clouds may gather,
All must work for good to me.
Man may trouble and distress me
Twill but drive me to Thy breast
Life with trials hard may press me,
Heaven will bring me sweeter rest
Oh 'tis not in grief to harm me
While Thy love is left to me;
Oh,' twere not in joy to charm me,
Were that joy unmixed with thee.
Haste then on from grace to glory,
Armed by faith and winged by prayer;
Heaven's eternal days before thee
God's own hand shall guide thee there.
Soon shall close the earthly mission,
Swift shall pass thy pilgrim days,
Hope soon change to glad fruition,
Faith to sight and prayer to praise.

I am blogging from our new IPad and it is the coolest thing I have ever seen. I feel like a little kid playing Nintendo Super Mario Brothers for the first time. Matt and I have talked about getting one but it was always just (or so I thought) hopeful wishes. We just found out this week (I know, we are probably behind the times :)) that Apple was introducing the IPad 2 and they were lowering the first edition by $100. Take that discount, add in Matty's Tar jay discount and the fact that he saved all of his Christmas and Birthday money and..... Score! We are new IPad owners! It is quite different from a regular computer so I am still trying to learn how to use it but from what I know so far it is hands down awesome.
The only bummer is that my husband thinks its only his....but I keep telling him because we are married, "What's mine is yours and whats yours is mine, babe." :)He has been very sweet and let me play with it ALMOST the entire length of the Orlando Magic basketball game last night....with of course commercial break interruptions "Can I see the Ipad real quick?" :)
Well, I need to go get ready for the Walk for Life I am doing with our church. I hope everyone has a great weekend! I'll be back later this weekend for another post. :)
