Pictures are finally up - just two months after the fact. =) Julia's brother Caleb (Uncle Tabet to Abigail) joined us the evening of Abigail's birthday - which made it a party in Abigail's estimation. She was delighted by his company and the balloons and cupcakes and ice cream and candles and singing. Her three presents were overwhelming - we had to pull her away from the first to make her open the second (If only we'd known!). She loves her pots and pans, dollhouse, and play-doh barrel. The next morning five young friends (and mommies) came for a snowflake themed birthday party (ironic considering the mid-December 75 degree weather!). "Happy Dirthday, Abigail!" We love you and thank God for you!
The first days in November found us in Lynchburg, VA for Randy Beaty's funeral service. Randy was the 21-year-old second son of long-time friends who are missionaries in China and the testimony of Randy and of his family brought sweet praise to our God. We spent time with a number of friends while in the area.
Mid-way through the following week we left for Georgia and got to spend a few days with Mom and Dad Garner and to visit all of Nathan's grandparents - a real treat. Abigail loved all the spoiling from her grandparents and great-grandparents. =)
The slideshow includes a couple of pictures of Abigail with David - one of her best buddies whom we keep weekly.

For He hath made him (Christ) to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him. (2 Corinthians 5:21)

We spent August 10-11 with Nathan's sister Talitha and her family at their new home in Crossville, Alabama. The time together was a such a treat and of course the cousins had lots of fun. Lane is seven and had just begun second grade. Patrick just turned six and he started kindergarten the day we arrived. Laoise and Gavin are three and very funny. Abigail talks about her cousins all the time now! On the way home, we met Mom and Dad Garner for supper at Cracker Barrel.

Dear family and friends,
Welcome to our new blog! Here’s an overview of Abigail's development the past few months.
April: Nods “yes” (after months of shaking head “no,” takes great concentration and is very comical); makes the sounds of ducks, dogs, horses, and pigs; able to eat cereal and milk with a spoon
May: Can identify many body parts (hers, then Daddy’s, then Mommy’s); flies to Orlando and starts making (her own) airplane sound (ddjjjj…); loves brushing her own teeth (and begs to use Mommy’s makeup)
June: Tries to repeat words- says mommy, juice, cheese, yes, meow, bow and bubble; attempts to climb on everything and thinks she’s big enough to walk the stairs; makes us laugh by hunting for her belly button
July: Enjoys spending four days with buddies Rose Marie (2 1/2) and Autumn (8 months); learns new words every day
Abigail's travels over the past three months include trips to: Tennessee (GramMee, Grandpa Mee and family), Florida (two day vacation at Sea World), Virginia (last visits with Great-grandmother Patteson “Mimi”, cousin Jessica’s bridal shower, Mimi’s memorial service and time with family), Kentucky (new state - visiting Mommy’s friend Rachel), Georgia (Grandddaddy and Grandmama Garner), and California (friends Lai, Brian, Rose and Autumn Swillum). Later this month we plan to help celebrate Abigail’s Great-granddad and Great-grandma Johnson’s 60th wedding anniversary.
We'll try to keep this page current. Check back whenever you like. In the meantime, we'd love to hear from you!
Nathan, Julia, and Abigail
