look who decided to update the world on the williamses!! we have been so so busy that i have not even had a chance to really take any pictures! we have gotten some video, which i'll upload in another post (i'm on the 'ol imac right now...too slow) and some cell phone pics. sadly, our camera is broken right now and is hard to handle to get the pictures. maybe santa will be nice to us this year! i'm sitting in my sewing room/guest room right now. i have been enjoying our sun room on most days, but today, i'm realizing how much i love this tower, as we like to call it. there are 7, count them, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 windows in this room! it's so nice with all the natural light, you really don't even need a lamp on. this used to be ben's office, but since he moved on up, to the east side (a little jefferson's for ya), i've definitely taken advantage of this room! also, we had our first guests to sleep up here, joe and leah sulateskee!! yea! anyway, the boys are getting so big. dillon has more words than i can even count, isaac has started crawling, and eating real people food. sadly, we have been to the doctor several times in the past month. we started out with a horrible cold/something after we had gotten back from georgia. (did i mention we went to atlanta to see pop pop, granny, and aunt jen jen?) both boys had ear infections, isaac's almost bad enough for his eardrum to rupture. well, this past week, his eardrum did rupture. we now have an appointment with the ent at the end of the month to set up an appointment for tubes. dillon also still had fluid on his ears. it's so sad when your children are so happy...wait a second, let me explain. the boys are so content and rarely cry or least not out of the ordinary. so, we never know if they really are sick or not. that's what is so sad. ben says the have the janie myatt syndrome, which is "suck it up! you'll be fine!" as sometimes the janie myatt syndrome is a good thing, for little boys whose ears are hurting, it's probably not the best thing. we will see what the ent says and when the appointment will be made for. 
also, the boys are weighing in at: dillon: 26 pounds (he's big enough to just get on the scales now) and isaac: 21ish pounds. they are so so much fun. they are playing together so well and they love each other. dillon will wake up in the morning or from a nap and dillon will say "hi, brudder! hi, brudder!" and, as i'm typing this, he's yelling, "ISAAC, ISAAC!!!!!!" he is sleeping. now, dillon is saying "shhh shhh shhh!" anyway, they just keep getting better and better!! 
we did go to atlanta to hang out with family. while we were there, we enjoyed a get together with old friends, going to church with the people that were fundamental in ben's discipleship, went to ikea and a movie, went to the aquarium, and to the zoo, and the list goes on and on! it was so much fun and a much needed break from the norm for me. pop pop and granny kept the boys all day one day for ben and i to go out for our anniversary (four blissful years!). we fell in love with ikea and made our christmas wish list as well ;)
just recently, i had the opportunity to coordinate trista and charlie havner's wedding. i've known these kids since they were in high school, which is when they started dating. so, it was such a joy to see this relationship come to fruition in marriage! God was glorified at the ceremony and a great time was had by all.

me with the bride. she looked beautiful!!!

at the rehearsal dinner

next month, we have the women's retreat for Christ Community coming up, saturday night pookie (the big birthday bash for brian denker) and a great night of worship at church that ben has been working on so hard. it's nice to have a break from being so busy. today, we're sitting on the couch, not doing a whole lot of anything. it's so nice! we love and miss you all!! here's some pictures of atlanta for you to enjoy!

well, i know i haven't updated about our family in a very long time. we have been crazy busy. i hope to do that tonight. as for now, i wanted you to be aware of something to pray for. our friends, thomas and tina varughese had a horrible accident with their son who is 11 years old. you can read about it here and read his updates here. it is such a blessing to have children. it's even more of a blessing when God has an amazing path for them. i'm very excited to see what God is going to do with micah and how He is going to use him in his life.

Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Praise Him all creatures here below
Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
