I'm bummed that I didn't bring my nice camera for this special night but was happy I had a small camera in my purse to remember this! After many years of renting different places our church has bought a building! Last week our family got to take part in writing all over the main sanctuary's floor before the carpet got laid. It was amazing watching people pour their hearts out all over the floor of that place. I was so glad we took our kids and made them part of our Church's' permanent home. Addisyn was soooooooo excited to write her favorite verse out. She had my Bible open and ready!
Addisyn working hard on her verse Ainsley was drawing with red marker..... she was drawing our familyAll 4 of the kid's hands.... Here is what Luke wrote, "I will not be afraid"

We were able to renew our Disneyland passes a few weeks ago and the kids were sooooooooo excited! We have had passes since Addisyn was born but ours expired in January and we really missed it! Addisyn enjoys the characters the most especially the girl ones: Luke is TOTALLY freaked out about the characters. When we pull in the parking structure he starts obsessing over them and he is stressed out. Tim decided it was time to "help" Luke with his anxieties. Luke needs to be "pushed" into dealing with his fears... this all goes back to his sensory issues and the "unknown". He did really good: Ainsley is in LOVE with Minnie Mouse she actually talks about her daily but when she got to see her in "real life" she didn't know what to think. But she warmed up enough to stand next to Addisyn who was standing next to Minnie. And this guy likes to talk to the characters but keeps his distance... he stands back and yells to them funny questions.... and when the characters answer all the kids laugh... Karsten is really good at making everyone laugh.
We are so thankful that we get to enjoy family days like these..... these are special moments we will never forget.
