Aiden's 1yr b-day party Saturday. He's one of the sweetest one-year-olds ever! The girls love making gifts. Here is a teddy bear made out of jeans that Kayla made.

I love my new juicer my parents gave me for Christmas! Gary and I did a juice fast this past week thanks to inspiration from Brian. Some days were easier than others, but we felt great. We had already been juicing once a day, but we felt so great with even more fruits and veggies in our bodies. It gives you so much energy....NATURAL energy! I have never and will never drink a store-bought energy drink! I think they are very dangerous. Drinking a plate full like this is way more healthy than what you can buy at the store! Could you consume all this at one setting??? Probably not....but you can sure drink it!! Try it! We have tried to be very health conscious this past year with switching a lot of our eating habits. We plan to work even harder at being a better steward of our bodies. The Bible has a lot to say about food believe it or not! Everything is so processed, fried,and full of yucky things for you ! I just don't think God intended for us to eat that way when he provided so many healthy things for us. I have so much more I would like to say about eating habits, but don't have the time to type right now, but we are trying very hard in our household to eat in a way that is more pleasing to the Lord and in return we get to feel great! I hope I instill that in my children while they are young. I wish I could go back and re-wind the way we have eaten-----especially college days!! Obviously, we can't do that so we will just press on from here and make changes accordingly! Here are some things we have been doing for a while now and strive to do even more: More fruits and veggies---raw!!, whole wheat everything, make from scratch whenever possible, not keeping soda or sweet tea in the house, make fresh juice or a smoothie every day possible, veggies in every dish whenever possible, and lots more! It takes a lot of work, preparation and time, but the benefits are so worth it!

We were privileged once again this week for the girls to spend quality time with one of their great-grandmothers! Gary's parents visited this week and they brought Granny with them. We were very thankful to have several days in a row with her. The girls had fun taking everyone on golf-cart rides and playing ping-pong and of course they had to serenade granny! :-) We will cherish these days.
