Happy Birthday Emmerson!

Four years ago today I was sitting at my desk in Dallas and waiting for the call. My older sister Becky was in labor with the my first niece, Emmerson Lauren Cave. When she arrived I made the drive to Fort Worth to meet her. It was a special day for our family! She is a sweet little princess! It has been amazing to watch her grow and change. I love her beautiful blond hair and to hear her laugh! She is a great entertainer & singer! Being an Aunt is one of the greatest things in the world and she was only the beginning! Today is her big day and I hope it was a wonderful one!

We love you Emmerson!

Disclaimer: Too all our other nieces and nephews....this is the start of birthday posts :)

I know that I do not tell people enough how FANTASTIC & WONDERFUL my husband is. I am one lucky girl! He is so kind, loving, giving, patient & a friend to everyone. He is great listener when I need to vent, he is the ultimate comedian when I need a good laugh or even when I am angry :) He makes me a better woman, wife, sister & friend. I cannot thank the Lord enough for this blessing He has given me! Our life together has already been an AMAZING ADVENTURE! I cannot wait to see what journey will be next!

With that said....we are turning over a new leaf in 2009. We are back on the church hunt and thrilled to be there! It will be a struggle on some days but we are GAME! God is good! It is so exciting to look into the future and know that it is even better than today. I am confident is the Lord's promises and I know that we will be used in so many ways.

We have been working for months to try and get all of Chris' sermons online so everyone can enjoy them.....and now we have SUCCESS!

Please check it out!

Korean BBQ

I think one of the best parts of living in this area has been the culture - or the amount of culture. There are so many different people and different nations represented in the United States. Chris & I love to experience foreign cultures anytime we get the opportunity.

This last week we went KOREAN with Andy & Ellen Choi. We met Andy & Ellen through our young marrieds ministry and then we also participated in a small group with them. They a parents to 3 amazing little boys and we just love spending time with them! So Saturday night we headed to Fort Lee and had dinner is a large Korean area. It was awesome! It honestly felt like we were in another country. Andy did all the ordering and some of the "teaching". We had BBQ - Korean style. The food was fabulous! We are looking forward to experiencing it again real soon!

For those of you who love the details...we had spare ribs & pork, along with soups & sides. Chris & I successfully tried everything which really impressed our friends! We are suckers for a good time what can I say :) The rice wine was a big hit as well. We are hoping our next adventure with the Choi's will be at a Korean grocery store! They go every week - we can't wait to see it.
