The Sellman Family

Monday, August 17, 2009


We went to Winston recently to meet up with our friends: Wendy, Riley, Berkley, Jamie, Will, and Lindy. None of us got to go to Will and Lindy's birthday party in July because of sickness, so we decided to have a little belated gathering for them. I can't believe they are 2 already! And I can't believe Mia will be 3 before long. Where does the time go?

Burn That Note!

God has really blessed our church and allowed us to pay off the $2.5 million debt that we had on our Family Life Center (FLC) in just 7 years! Daddy was head of the FLC team which worked on campaigns to pay it off and then planned a big celebration to burn that note once it was paid off. Everyone had so much fun and it was a great family day. There was so much for everyone to do, and then there was a catered meal after the festivities.

Mia wouldn't get her face painted, but wanted to have her arm painted. She was so excited about it!

Of course it had to be princess-related!

Someone from our church took the kids for a tractor ride all around the church. It was adorable and made to look like it was pulling cows. The kids loved it!

Burning the started pouring right before they lit it. I was thankful because I was scared more than just the paper would catch fire!

My best friend, Wendy, her girls, and her dad met us at the Museum of Life and Sciences recently. It was super hot, but the girls had a ball. Mia said her favorite thing was running around, as usual. Here are a couple pictures of the girls having fun.

Getting ready to go in the butterfly house. I think Mia and Riley were trying to tell us that their bottoms were burning!

Mia and Riley were so funny. They would stop at every dinosaur to pose for a picture. Berkley didn't care for having her picture taken!

Myrtle Beach

At the end of July, we went to Myrtle Beach with Grandma and Grandpa, and stayed in their trailer at Ocean Lakes Campground. We all had fun, and Mia thought it was cool riding around in the golf cart. Of course, her favorites were the pool and playground, so we didn't spend much time on the beach. We also took her back to Broadway so she could ride the "wild cars" and other rides. Now she is telling us that she wants a "wild car" for her birthday!
