I know, I know. It has been way too long since we have posted anything to our blog. Sometimes, life just gets super busy and the next you know it has been 5 months. Wait, FIVE months? Really? Maybe it has something to do with us trying to get our little bundle of joy potty trained.
Thats right, this guy.
Luckily, just this week, we have seemed to have a break through. He has been dry all week long and we are taking a family trip to buy Tigger.
Why Tigger? Good question. Well recently Porter went to see his first movie. Nanna treated Porter to Winnie the Pooh.
Not the greatest picture, but you get the idea.
He did really well for a while but towards the end he wanted to play on the floor. Gross.
Here is another major step for our, not so little anymore, little guy. A big boy bed.
Here are some other random photos of Porter and his friends over the past couple of months.

So Shine 2011 was this weekend, and guess what, we survived. What is Shine 2011 you ask. Well, that is what our church called its Discipleship Now Conference this year. It started Friday night and ended this morning with the 11:30 service. It included more than 180 middle school and high school students as well as a number of college student leaders. There were more than 8 baptisms this morning at church of students who either gave their lives to Christ or were following up on a previous decision through their public profession of faith.
We were blessed to be able to play a small role in this weekend with the students. We were a host home for the weekend. There were 8 wonderful 8th grade girls in our home this weekend and 2 college leaders. Yes, Porter was here too and he hammed it up for the girls. I was worried about the girls being loud and waking Porter up at night, but he slept just fine.
The kids all worked really learning some dance moves which they showed off at Falls Park downtown. THEY WERE AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!! Please check it out and tell your friends.

Sorry it took us a while to get this post up. We had a great Christmas this year. Porter was much more aware and was able to open his own presents. He left cookies and milk out for Santa on Christmas eve. He was very excited to see the empty plate and cup along with the note that Santa left for him. After we read Santa's note we sang happy birthday to Jesus.
After we checked out the note for a little while Porter realized that Santa brought more than just a note.
He loves his new tricycle.
Santa also brought Momma and Daddy some stuff too. Momma loves hers.
Checking out my new wool overcoat.
After we opened presents we hit the road for Sumter and Mayesville to spend time with family. Porter got lots of stuff at Yaya and Grandpa's house.
Then it was off to Grandaddy and Nana's house and out to the country with the extended family.
There is that slinky.
Luckily Gam a Gam made it back in time to see Porter before he left for Greenville.
