"He shall feed his flock like a shepherd: he shall gather the lambs with his arm,
and carry them close to his heart, and shall gently lead those that are with young." Isaiah 40:11

Happy Valentine's Day!

It is SO good to have my mom here.  Dave and I took advantage of her help this afternoon to finish up our bed shopping. Rachel thought the Temperpedic "Cloud" was so dreamy - the little princess has expensive taste!  But we finally decided on a King size memory foam (different brand) at a wonderful price. (If you want to buy a bed, February is apparently the month to do it!) We're getting it in a few weeks and if we don't like it within two months, we can return it for full price.  We were deciding between this and two twin XL beds but we were stalling a bit on it because most places sell this size as a final sale.  (I know, that's odd isn't it?) Anyway, I am really looking forward to trying our new bed out!!!! We were getting a bit tired of having this decision hanging over our head. 

Rachel is doing really well.  Lots of smiles and laughs and 'talking'.  In fact, we don't know if we have ever seen her this happy. She is so beautiful. And I am so glad that my mom gets to enjoy her like this.  At Christmas, Rachel had so very few smiles and seemed very weak.

Mom helped the kids decorate a heart cake this afternoon. And earlier this morning, she had help from the kids to clean up the kitchen...and this led to some wall washing too!  (see pic)
