**New pics added to this post as of Friday morning, 2/29/08**

This past weekend we were so blessed to see lots of family (in town for my aunt's wedding). Some of these children I had never even met! It was so much fun to have them all together in one place, at least for a few hours. My parents were so sweet to make us all breakfast and then provided us dinner after the wedding that night! I am so happy that I have such a Christ-centered family, and its so great to see the next generation of Hayes children growing! I think we're only missing 3 kids in these next pics (for privacy reasons, I'm not including everyone's names- if you're curious, email me and I'll let you know who's who).

I just wanted to take a second and say how much I love my husband and how proud I am of him. He is so extremely talented and is such a blessing to me, our girls and so many other people. He has been working so hard, especially the past 6 months, for our family and our church, rarely taking any time to do ANYTHING for himself. He recently did this video for our church, and really wanted it to minister to people, so I felt compelled to put it on our blog, for those that haven't seen it. He worked so hard on it and put a lot of love and thought into it. Enjoy, and pass it on...

Jaron, I love you more than words can say and I want the whole world to know!!!! (Well, at least all of the blog world) :)

Many people live their entire life and rarely get a glimpse of true joy. I for one, am one of the lucky few who get to come home to a house full of joy everyday. It is amazing what small packages my greatest joys have been delivered in.
I just wanted to share with you a few snapshots of the joy in my life.

Also, Brynley has been developing a very interesting talent. I'm not sure I will like it when she is older, but for now it is one of my favorite things!! Enjoy.

New Phone!

I still think cell phones are the greatest inventions ever and I'm still amazed at all the crazy things they do. I just got a new one tonight for FREE (which makes it even better), and I absolutely love it. I can now check my email on the go and surf the web when I want. I'm so excited so I just thought I'd write about it. Check it out...

Also, the Verizon guy gave each of the girls a demo model to play with at the store and he let them take them home. Makayla was very excited, and I was too- they're real phones...well at least they look and feel like real phones. How cool....

Way more important, Makayla is doing much, MUCH better... Thanks for all the love and support. She has a tiny little cough and her nose is a little stuffy, but she's sleeping great and NO MORE FEVER!!! For those that don't know, about 5 days after we thought the flu was gone, Makayla had a really high fever (103.6), and we had to get chest xrays to make sure it wasn't pnemonia. Thank God it wasn't, and both her and Bryn have clear throats and ears.

Hope everyone had a great Monday and has a wonderful rest of the week!!
