Who wouldn't want to eat lunch with ladle?

And yes, Charlie still has on his pajamas. Some days that happens.

One of my favorite things about our church is that we are led by a board of elders who lead is in monthly prayer. This month, we are meeting every week for a SEASON of prayer as we pray specifically over our church body, the city of Dallas, and the church universal. This past week was a sweet time to pray with other couples in our home groups as we confessed sin to each other, prayed for racial diversity in our own church body, and for the Gospel to be preached and received in all of DFW, not just at our church. Praise the Lord for what He has done and continues to do!

Other highlights from the week:
-Charlie had his 12 month checkup and of course measured to be a tall, big headed, semi-chunk! He survived 4 shots and was a trouper!
-Thursday night was a sweet night with my bible study girls as we said our goodbyes to our dear friend Rylin who packs up this week and moves to Valdosta with her hubby Joby and sweet boy Bower. Good thing they are moving to V-town and I don't have to worry about never seeing her again!

Picture from the week:

My drink - a tall DECAF white chocolate mocha with 1% milk, no whip, no foam
Jordan's drink - a venti caramel frappuccino with extra caramel

I have had a few friends document their year through pictures and/or blog posts. While I'm not calling this a "resolution", I would like to document our year a little better. 2011 was our first full year as parents....so it was pretty much a blur! As we prepare for baby #2, I would love to get in the habit of documenting their lives before they flash before our eyes. So here goes nothing....

Highlights from the week:
-Seeing baby BOY Crews on Wednesday for my 19 week appointment. Looks like another whopper is growing in there! Already measuring 10 days ahead of schedule.
-Our dear friends, the Youngers, moved from the 'burbs to Dallas and are less than 3 miles away!
-Charles seeing a commercial for Finding Nemo and saying "-ish"! I think it's because he was fascinated with cousin Hank's fish tank all week.
