This is an old video I shot of Nellie performing one of her many "tricks"...I will try to continue to capture them on video. She is such a little monster!

Gabe and I went to Prescott his weekend for our 5 year anniversary. We went horseback riding on saturday and we went to Out of Africa on Sunday. It was so much fun!
Here is me on my horse, Rose.
Gabe riding Vegas
Ostrich came right up to the bus!
The zebras apparently bite, so I didn't stick my fingers out to them.
Then he came in the bus!
And I fed him!
The sunset on the way home was gorgeous...
The sky looked like it was on fire (I didn't do anything to the color, it really was just that beautiful)

Well I was finally able to get a photo of the tooth. You can still hardly see it, but it is a little more visible. It is on her bottom right. I think it is causing her to be a little cranky today. On the other hand she is finally getting over some of her separation anxiety! I can leave the room (for a minute or two) without her screaming! It is making chores much easier! Yay!

Well we got back from our mission trip to rocky point with everything in tact and one new tooth! It was such an awesome experience. I saw God working in so many ways and it was really eye opening to see how people in other countries live. I used to think this kind of poverty only existed in far off places like Africa. But to see people living it structures with walls made of cardboard boxes, with no running water or electricity was just unbelievable. I think the thing that hit home most for me was seeing little babies living there. I just know how hard it is for me sometimes with Nellie, even just doing everyday things. I can't even imaging trying to raise a child in conditions such as they were down there. Knowing that God used our hands and feet to help out a family in need is so humbling. Anyway here are a few pics from the trip. The rest are HERE
