18 months!

Ellie recently had an 18 month photoshoot with our amazing friends The Heatons.  They did a great job capturing Ellie even though all she wanted to do was run around and play.  Just thought I'd share some of our favorites... I posted a bunch more over on Facebook that you can look at if you're my FB friend.

11/11/11 is coming quick!

I just wanted to give you guys a quick update on how things are going with The Scripture to Music Project, my goal to write a song for every book of the Bible by the time I turn 30 on 11/11/11.

The other day, I dropped Ellie off at Mother's Day Out and went to work.  I re-wrote and re-recorded my Leviticus song, wrote/recorded a song from 3 John, and finished/recorded a song from 1 Thessalonians.  At the end, I sat down and worked on a song for Daniel and I think it's pretty much finished, but I still need to record it.  They aren't all the best songs I've ever written, but that's ok.

So, after productive day, I have 14 songs left to write and record - 5 from the Old Testament and 9 from the New.  11/11/11 is about 11 weeks away.  I feel good about accomplishing my goal, as long as I keep the right attitude (it's not about me) and I'm ok with pulling an all-nighter or two.

These are the books I still have to cover (if you have any ideas of what I should write about, let me know! I'm being serious!!)...

1 Kings
2 Thess
1 Timothy
2 Timothy
1 Peter
2 Peter
1 John
2 John

Here's a song from Isaiah I wrote this month that I'm excited about... It's from a passage that is rich with good news for me and you.

Girly Girl

First off, I apologize for being such a terrible blogger of late.  I took a nice, kind of unintentional break from reading blogs and writing this one as I worked on getting this one over here up and running.

Sooooo.... I think we have a girly girl on our hands:

Exhibit A: Heels [video]

Exhibit B: Purses [video]

Exhibit C: "Pedicures"

Exhibit D: Baby Dolls

And I didn't even mention the way she loves to play house, hates to be dirty, loves to look at her outfits in the mirror, and loves trying on different shoes.... All. Day. Long.  Oh man, what is this no-makeup, shopping-makes-me-feel-panicky, tomboy mom going to do? :)
