7. Worshipping with them on the floor to You Alone are Father, You alone are good....
8. Going to Dollywood when no one is there and being able to just stay on the rides over and over and over because there are no lines. (we just got back yesterday- I forgot my memory card for the camera so no pictures!! :( )
9. Riding the River Rampage with Reece and Bubba while we scream... and laugh... and get drenched.
10. Drinking hot chocolate to get warm because we are frozen after the ride.

Steph!
Dan and I are going to come this winter. Two of my closest friends from college just moved back to Chattanooga and Dan still hasn't met you and your boys! (that includes Tim!:))
I love reading your blog and have shared it with several women that I work with.
God has given you a gift of sharing with your words!

Since #19 is on your list, then I will comment for the first time. We go to church with Eddie and Trinity, and that is how I happened upon your blogsite. I love the pics of your beautiful boys!

Your blog is also how I have formed an emotional and spiritual connection to Isaac's mommy, who lives states away and whom I have never met, but pray for often. My heart aches for her as a fellow mom; thank you for sharing her story.

Nice to "meet" you! :)
