weekend+thankful heart

this is how we spent the majority of the weekend.

we watched four movies...
well kind of, while we weren't entertaining E when she was awake.

it's rainy today.  ellie is asleep and i am enjoying a quiet morning.  thinking about these past three months.  she'll be three months old tomorrow.  i am blessed.

yesterday was baby dedication at church.  it's so important to us that E is raised in a home that is full of love.... for one another and for Jesus.  it was such a special moment as parents standing with other parents... all making a commitment to share His love with our littles.  we're blessed with a great church family.  i am thankful God has placed them in our lives...  some of our dearest friends.


  1. Looks like a lovely weekend to me! Congrats on the baby dedication. I can't wait to do that at our church. But it'll probably be a few more months.

  2. That's awesome we can't wait to do that with ours here shortly!!! We have a boy who's almost 6 weeks ;)
    It's really great to know your a believer that's why I started following your blog...I'm as well!!! We are blessed to have the one and only John MacArthur as our pastor here in SoCal.

  3. This looks like a beautiful moment and so cozy! It's really amazing to see how much life changes when you have a baby and how appreciative of little things like this you become. Congrats on your beautiful beautiful baby and your wonderful life.

  4. love this cozy little shot. It is rainy here today and I would love to be home with my Mr. cuddled up watching a movie. But getting to take a break from work and have lunch with him is pretty great too. :)
    Can't believe it's been 3 months! I remember I just started following your blog maybe a few weeks before you had her!

  5. stonebridge really is such an awesome place. we've only been a few times now, but i've really loved it.
    it's so easy to see how important "family" is in that church. lovely!

    i really like this picture! : )

  6. This sounds like my kind of weekend. Mine was similar and I was happy for the extra hour thanks to daylight savings time to snuggle inside. I like your nest.

  7. I love this picture. You have the most adorable family!
