If you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, "Move from here to there," and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. ~Matthew 17:20

Baptism, Balloon Fights and Bad News

After youth one Sunday night, Spencer arrived at the car with the BIGGEST smile ever and announced that he had rededicated his life to The Lord and was going to be baptized!  Even though he was baptized when he was 9 months old, I think it was important to him to make a conscious decision to do so now that he is older.  So, last Sunday our family and friends joined us at The Church at Rock Creek to celebrate Spencer's baptism.  It was such an emotionally awesome day.

We are so blessed.

There are so many things I love about our boys and I love that they are always concerned about each other.  When Cole was in LA for two weeks, by himself and sick, Spencer was at home trying to devise a way to make him feel better and what better way than a surprise water balloon/air soft gun attack.  Honestly, I don't understand boys because making each other feel better falls under the guise of sweating, chasing, hiding, surprise attacks, etc.  MY idea of being cheered up would include a mani/pedi, laughter and wine.  Just saying.

Spencer contacted Cole's friends and arranged to have Robert keep Cole busy while everything was being prepared at the house (Brad and I filled 200 water balloons with a syringe!).  When Cole and Robert arrived at the house, this was the video Spencer left for them...

He was so serious!

 Outdoor showers and watermelon rounded out the day; I think it is safe to say that everyone had a blast!

Cole did receive word that he did not book the role in the upcoming Disney movie.  As usual, he rolls with the punches while Brad and I were so very sad at the lost opportunity.  But, as Cole is constantly reminding us, "it must not have been God's will".  Wow, I think we could learn a few things from our kids with their awesome attitudes.

We are totally enjoying being in Arkansas with our friends and family.  We have had some interest in our house but we're still waiting on "the" ones who are meant to live here.  I have attached the virtual tour of the house so please feel free to share with anyone http://www.virtualtourcafe.com/tour/256291.

"Keep on asking, and you will be given what you ask for.  Keep on looking, and you will find.  Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened.  For everyone who asks, receives.  Everyone who seeks, finds.  And the door is opened to everyone who knocks."
~Matthew 7:7-8
