Makenna with her cousin Laynie
Saturday, December 6, 2008
One thing that I got to do this week was attend my dear friend, Lauren's, first annual cookie exchange. Twelve girls gathered at her house to exchange cookies and recipes and to just fellowship with one another. It was a fantastic time and I have several new cookies recipes I am going to make here soon.
We are hoping to get some Christmas pictures taken soon, so we will be sure to post them when we do.

It is hard to believe that we have been married three years today. We have shared so much together over the past three years and we can't wait to see what God has in store for us in the future. We have definitely had our share of ups and downs, but we thank God everyday for allowing us to be married to our best friend and for blessing our lives far beyond our own dreams and ambitions. Here are a few other pictures from our big day.

Our happy strawberry

Excited to go trick-or-treating
Makenna had a great 1st Halloween. I was out of school and Justin took the day off so that we could have a nice family day. We got to sleep in until 8 o'clock and then we headed to Cracker Barrel for breakfast. While we were there it started pouring so our plans of heading to the pumpkin patch got changed. We decided to head home because Makenna was getting tired and we wanted her to get a good nap in before the main festivities of the day began. After her nap, we dressed Makenna in her costume and then headed out. We first went to Aunt Sheila's, then to Jack Henry so Daddy could show Makenna off to his co-workers and then we headed to Bolivar to see family and friends. It was a long and busy day, but it was a very memorable one for all three of us. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

On Friday, Makenna spent the day with her Nana and Aunt Sheila at the garage sale and she helped make some sales. Then on Friday night we went to Bolivar for the Bolivar vs. Willard high school football game. Makenna even got to go stand on the sidelines with her Uncle Trent during the game.
Saturday was a very memorable day because Makenna made her first visit to Silver Dollar City. My mom won a contest through a radio station and got some tickets to go, so we tagged along. Makenna enjoyed herself very much and we had a blast taking some fall pictures of her.
By the time Sunday rolled around we were all very tired and we all three took a good, long Sunday afternoon nap to help us get ready for this week. We have several activities at church because we are hosted a Global Impact Conference, but hopefully this weekend won't be as packed full as this past one.
Jennifer and Justin
Makenna is so happy to be at SDC

Search for "Makenna" and the picture of her in her Bumbo will appear (along with a lot of other Makennas). Click on it to go to her gallery. From there you can rate each picture with up to five stars and also recommend her to be the winner. You can do this once a day until September 15th.
Tomorrow I return to work and Makenna goes back to her babysitter, who is very excited to be getting her back again. I am not real excited about starting another school year because I have enjoyed my time off, but it will be nice to get back into a routine. It is hard to believe that this will be my fourth year of teaching! I will try to post some new pictures sometime soon.

Family Photo in the pool.
I think this is hilarious because not only has she squeezed herself in between the table and the wall, but she somehow managed to get there with her puppy, Rupert, on her back. Never underestimate the power of Makenna!
