This blog post on The Cripplegate is absolutely wonderful. It is a father's letter to his daughter. I am going to print it out and put it into the girls' baby books because it is the heart of their daddy too and his prayer for them. I also hope and pray they take the exhortation in it to heart. An Open Letter to My Daughter

I have come across two amazing blogs for which I am very thankful. The first is the Cripplegate blog. Some Master's Seminary guys do it and it is just amazing and biblical and informative.
The other blog is the Pioneer Woman blog. I like this blog for food. You may already know very well about this blog and wonder where I have been all this time. However, if not, I have shared with one other person. She has a cookbook that is really popular too. Click on the cooking link on the top to get to her recipes and such.
A friend from college started a blog called Next to Nothing in which she has a lot of good recipes. The blackened chicken salad is a must try I think. It has earned its place as a family favorite. The girls even loved the chicken- and that is saying something!

Owen decided that he wanted to stage a dance party for Adelyn and I so he got his drum and a couple of colored pencils (his drumsticks of choice) and had us dance to his beat. Then he put his pencils together and did something I had never seen him do before- he started playing a made-up violin. I actually don't know where he had seen this played before. I grabbed the camera quickly and asked him to redo it.
