Music Monday

My apologies for missing last week's Music Monday post, but I have special one in store for today, so hopefully it makes up for me skipping a week!

This music post is dedicated to both Josh's and my parents.  They have truly left us with a goodly heritage, and we are so blessed!  Josh and I are thankful for the way we were raised, the values that were instilled in us, and the love that was shown us in teaching and training us in the ways of the Lord.  It is our prayer to pass on this heritage to the next generation through our children! (cue the music - you'll have to find it at the bottom of the post :D...)

Goodly Heritage


I may not have riches as some others may.


 But I have a mother who knows how to pray.


 And maybe there's some things I missed in my youth,


But I have a father who stands for the truth...

I have a goodly heritage.
I'm blessed with things you can't see...


I have a goodly heritage.
And that is worth far more to me!


And if in the future my parents pass on


To dwell in that City we've come to call Home


They may not leave me the goods of this world


But I have accepted their God and His Word!

I have a goodly heritage.
I'm blessed with things you can't see...


I have a goodly heritage.
And that is worth far more to me!




Thank you, Dad and Mom Lindsey and Dad and Mom Smith, for training us in the ways of the Lord!!  We love all of you!

Love,
Heather

6 Months!

Yesterday, our little peanut turned 6 months old!  This mama wishes she could slow the days down, but I am for sure enjoying every moment of this journey.  God has blessed us beyond measure with such a happy, healthy baby girl!  This stage is so much fun, and she has bloomed so much in her own little ways just in the past few days.  Joanna is so talkative now with all her cooing and squealing and it's just way too cute!  My favorite little thing that she does right now, is whenever she hears music playing, she starts "singing" :)  It is so adorable!  And she loves it even more when Mommy or Daddy sing along with her 💗


We love you, precious little one!

Love,
Heather

Music Monday

I'm actually posting a music post on a Monday - lol!  


If you are looking for a place to buy God-honoring music that you can either download MP3's or order CD's without second-guessing what kind of music you're getting, then Faith Music Missions is the website to shop on!  They have a wide selection of music that I think you would be blessed by.  I have linked a few of my favorites below...

You Were There ~ Faithmen Quartet
Well Done ~ Bruce Frye
Cleanse Me ~ Lois and India Rasquinha
Faithful to the Cross ~ Andrew Russ
God Can Be Trusted ~ Sweet Echoes

Birthday Bash...

...with a SPLASH!!
Today we celebrated some very special birthdays!  We threw all of my sibling and Josh a family birthday party today, and we had a blast!  So thankful for a wonderful time together and lots of new memories made :)  So, without further ado, welcome to the party...




We ate our lunch picnic-style outside, and then the fun began with a water balloon toss, while our little peanut enjoyed some frozen bananas :)





Someone felt a little left out...


...and so I held her while tossing water balloons.  It was quite the adventure!  Lol :)  But she smiled the whole time and loved being a part of the game!

After the water balloon toss, we moved on to water balloon batting practice.  This was hit with everyone!




 
 
He ended up slinging this right back at Josh with the bat! lol


 




This promptly turned into a full-on water balloon fight, complete with squirt guns and 5-gallon buckets of water!  And of course, lots of laughs :)


Observing the action with Grampa :)





I got distracted for a moment by cute baby piggies.  They steal my heart every time...


...back to the fun...





 

I think everyone was a bit tuckered out after all the outdoor fun.  While we were waiting for all the clean up and changing of clothes to finish up, some cute people had a little relaxation time...


More baby piggies <3
The festivities ended with lots of gifts and yummy cake!

I love your face, Dad :P 











It was a wonderful day!  This little munchkin had a lot of excitement for one day, and she did so good :)  Isn't her yawn just the cutest thing ever?!



Happy birthday to Noah, Lydia, Michael, Matthew, and Josh!!  We love you all!  Praising the Lord that we could celebrate another year with each of you :)

Love,
Heather
