On Sunday night as she was saying her bedtime prayer, she accepted Jesus as her personal Savior! She understands that Jesus died on the cross for her sins, and rose from the grave 3 days later! She is very excited that she will go to Heaven some day & see the streets of gold. Tom and I can't be more thrilled that she has made this decision!
As for other stuff that has been going on, Mackenzie had her first T-ball practice last night:
Grandma Palmer gave Jenna her first haircut! Her hair needed help, so we decided to try cutting it to see if that helps :)
And we also gave Tom a 3-hour haircut! I say "we" because it literally was we - me, his mom and his dad! The clippers were terrible, and I've never done it before, so I was slow trying to make sure I didn't mess anything up too bad, and Tom was just plain picky. So it took all 3 of us to get it done, and it took forever!!

This was just after the fireworks started, and Camden was sitting watching them:
And this video is a little bit of what we enjoyed. Tom is the one who recorded it, so you'll hear him & Mackenzie every once in a while on it! There are actually 2 sets of fireworks going off, so Tom tends to switch the camera from one to the other quite a bit, and there are also fireworks that are set off from a bridge, so you'll see those as well. One last note is that this is NOT the grand finale! Hope you enjoy!

We tried the johhny jumper again today and he seemed to like it much better than last time, as long as you don't leave him for too long in it.

Here's Jenna outside w/her coat unzipped:
Tom and Mackenzie took the opportunity to build a snowman:
I'm glad to say that we had a nice sunny day today, so the snow has already melted away, except for a tiny bit of the snowman. But, let me share just a funny little note about yesterday's fun in the snow. Tom was so amazed at how much snow we were getting that he wanted to get pictures of the girls outside, so he just hollered for them to leave whatever they were doing & "come outside to see the snow!" Well, neither of the girls had socks, shoes, or coats on, and he was going to let them go outside like that! What was he thinking?? Luckily, I stopped them just in time & made them get socks, shoes & coats on before going out. They still didn't have hats or gloves on, and Tom let them lay in the snow & make angels. Needless to say, Jenna came in freezing cold about 5 minutes later, wrapped her hands in a warm sweatshirt & fell asleep on the couch. Mackenzie is a die hard in the snow, so she lasted longer, but she was freezing when she came in as well.

Mackenzie went first and got 2 shots in the leg, and 1 shot in the arm. She didn't cry, but giggled to cover the pain. She weighed in at 42 lbs, which puts her in the 75th percentile, and measured 42 inches, which is 40th percentile. So, overall, she is just fine. Her hearing is fine, and we may have to look into her vision...we've got to keep an eye (no pun intended) on how she does. They estimate that it's 20/40 right now. So below are a couple shots of Mackenzie's "scars"
Camden cried for about a total of 45 seconds after his shots - all 4 of them!! Not bad, plus he had an oral vaccine for rotavirus, which I guess is new. Anyways, he weighed in at 12 lbs 7 oz, which puts him in the 75th percentile as well, and his height is 22 inches, which is only 15th percentile, so he's getting fat, just not tall :) And his head was 15 3/4", which is smack in the middle at 50th percentile!

After church Sunday, the girls and I headed to Springfield, Ohio to my sister's house. My parents are there babysitting, so we decided to go over there for a quick visit. The next picture is more for my sister's benefit since she's out of the country & I'm sure will be thrilled to see what the girls did to her son :) I'm sure this is probably what Camden has to look forward to as well with big sisters!!

Camden tried the johnny jumper the other day, and for now doesn't like it...
Mackenzie being a helper while I worked on the computer a couple days ago:
