much needed break

yeah! Phillip and I are leaving tomorrow to go on a ZOE leaders retreat. We are going to Innsbrook Lake with 9 of our dearest friends. We are staying in an amazing lake house that a family from church owns. We are going to relax and just have fun! The girls are staying here with Phillip's parents and I know they will have a great time. I am very excited to have this two day break and be able to relax a little. I've been feeling great with this pregnancy (I'm almost 12 weeks) but my body again is doing some funny things. The baby is doing great, heart rate is going strong and very fast. I'll go back in 4 weeks to check my cervical length (which if any of you followed my last pregnancy, this is a BIG deal), please be praying for this! We are doing the Beth Moore Psalms of Assents study at my church bible study, and we studied Psalm 121 last week. It is about the Lord being our protector. I felt very strongly that the Lord was speaking to me about my pregnancy. I have a great peace, even despite what my body is telling me.
So nevertheless, a must needed rest at the lake with best friends will be FUN!
Getting ready to leave (even if only for 2 days!) requires much preparation on my part. Today was my day to do laundry, cook and get the girl's food ready, and I'm putting the cleaning off until tomorrow. Phillip took some pictures of the girls playing in the laundry basket while I was folding clothes. Here are my 15 month old sweeties!
Having fun in the laundry basket.
Atley and Avery not sure if they want to smile or not....
Avery playing with her "play" cell phone. She has little curls coming in, and is walking more every day! yeah!
Atley with her auburn hair, curly in the back, and most always out of control! :)
