Ephesians 3:16-18

I pray that from His glorious, unlimited resources He will empower you with inner strength through His Spirit. Then Christ will make His home in your
hearts as you trust in Him. Your roots will grow down into God’s love and keep you strong. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is (Ephesians 3:16-18).

Tennessee part one

I thought I could write about the whole trip in one blog entry, but once I began to load pictures, I realized it would be an extra super looonnnggg blog post! Landry's first trip to Tennessee was a success!  We met Addilee for the first time and I met my first blog friend, Rach! My cousin Shonda and her husband finally met Landry and fell in love!  Landry fell in love with them too! The visit with Stacy and Dennis was one of the best visits we have had in a long time.  It may have been the BEST, because now we have bundles of joys!  Landry was the perfect baby the whole trip!  I am not sure where to start... I guess the beginning is always a good starting point. 

On our way to see our friends!!! This was Landry's first time to drive!  Don't freak out, I am only joking!

Landry and Addilee meeting for the first time!  They adored one another!  

Stace  (that's what I call her) and I became best friends at Louisiana Tech, so our girls had to have matching LA Tech dresses.  Alan's mom bought Addilee's dress almost as soon as she found out Stace was having a girl. She knew Landry had one and she wanted the girls to match.  Stace has been such a special friend.  Funny story, we did not like each other at first.  I thought she was stuck up and she thought the same of me.  This is why assuming is such a bad thing.  Thankfully, we gave one another a chance and eight years later here we are raising baby girls together.  We have always had so much in common and our friendship is an easy one.  In college people would ask if we were twins and apparently things haven't changed much.   

Pregnant with the girlies! 

Stacy looks beautiful and I look like a tired mommy, haha!

Our babies!!!

I am so thankful for this friendship!

This baby girl stole my heart!

Mommy and baby!

My baby girl!

This is how we pacified the girls long enough to take a few pictures.  Bottle in mouth and acting crazy!

This picture is so funny!  Addilee's face is priceless and precious!  Landry did not like her to cry! 

Oh how I love my sweet husband and child!  Thank you Lord for these two!

We have fabulous husbands and they are both such great dads!

Part two about meeting Rach and Christopher will be posted tomorrow!

Such cute photos!! Those girls, I think will be fast friends. Love the one of Landry with her hand on her, as if she's soothing her after crying.
