A couple of Sundays ago we had a couple of minutes before we had to leave for church (Shocker! We're usually running out the door as fast as we can go.) and everyone was in the mood for a few poses. Do I have gorgeous girls or what? Every time I look at a picture of one of them, I'm shocked at how grown up they're both looking. I know I see them every day, and every day they are growing, but I just don't recognize how much they're changing until I sit down and look at the latest photo I've taken vs one a few months ago.

I love Abby's goofy grins and how much fun she has with everyday things.

I love how Anna tries to be such a good helper and really goes out of her way to make the people around her feel special.

And I love that my girls really love each other. I hope we can hang on to that as they grow!

The Fair

In case some of you were wondering what it was we were doing at this year's fair, here's a peek. We've started a new business called Crossfire Combat Games. Our mission is to use something really cool and fun to help spread our love of Christ. Something that can reach young people outside of the four walls of a church building. Hopefully, along the way it will also be a way to supplement the often turbulent seasons of farm income. Any-who, we had our first big event during the fair, and it was tons of fun!

Kids of all ages and families played together, and everyone had a blast (even though it was 100 degrees out there)!

Here's Ty coaching a team before a game...

Even the girls got in on the fun!

We are so excited that God blessed us with a great kick off to this venture, and we're hoping it's only up from here!

Oh, and here's another super cute pic of my babies snuggling on the couch. I never get tired of the girls wanting to love on baby brother and/or each other!
P.S. Ben has discovered his hand as you can see in the pic. I took 7 or 8 photos, and he looks exactly the same in every one! :)
