Wonderful WeekendEver since getting the news from the doc 2 weeks ago about being able to take them out a little, my mind immediatly raced to the wimter meeting in Macclenny. After not being able to go to church for so long I was longing to go to this wonderful place where the Lord always meets with us. Macclenny will always be mine and Jon's home away from home. Unless you have ever been blessed to go there, you cannot understand the love that continually flows from that special place. Each member holds a special place in our hearts. So on thursday, my in-laws came in along with Uncle Hugh, Aunt Becky, their children, Nenie and Bro. Like Addison and on friday we all caravand to Macclenny. Ms. Susan and Mr. Ronnie were gracious enough to keep James and Audrey while Jon and I went to church friday night, all day saturday and Sunday morning. My dear friend Amber Gowens Ferrell is a wonderful and talented photogropher and she took the kiddos 1st professional pictures saturday afternoon. Earlier in the week I had thought about going to JC Penny to get their pics taken but then I thought about Ms. Ferrell and that was that. JC Penny doesn't hold a candle to Amber's talent! We had a great time and the kids really worked it out for her! SHe got some great shots and these are a few of them.
I will post some more later in the week and also some pictures of their first official visitors and their first trip away from home. They did WONDERFUL by the way. Although I am afraid now they are suffering from "arm fever"!

Oh Manda! Not to take away from your snapshots, ;) but WOW! Amber did an awesome job and it looks like the babies behaved great for her! I swear Audrey looks like a china doll in that dress. Aaawwww!!!

OK, that's cover of a magazine material, don't you all agree? The little angels even know how to pose for the camera. I saw it with my own two eyes... especially Audrey. Amber is so impressive. Everyone needs to hire her! She is so professional, and knew just when to snap (as you can see). Amanda Grace is quite impressive, too. It shows in her children..Saw that too.

I found out about your blog from Amber's. We said many prayers at Bethany for your sweet babies, but these are the first pictures I've seen. Congratulations!
