I wanted to post a few pictures of the girls in costume on Friday night. Sadie was very appropriately a clown and Anna was Daphne from Scooby Doo. They are very blessed with a Nina & Pappy who threw a huge party for all the kids which included moonwalks, hay rides, face painting, games, LOTS of candy & food and even goldfish for everyone to take home..and I'm not talking about the crackers.. Enjoy and check back at the end of the week for pictures of our new baby girl who is scheduled to arrive Thursday morning..

Summertime & A few pictures...

We've been having a very busy, fun summer. It has been SOOOO HOT though. I am so ready for the fall. Today we had some weather from a tropical storm so it has finally rained and the temperature dropped to about 75, it's so nice. Everyday in July I think it was 98-103! We've spent lots of time swimming in Nina and Pappy's new pool. The girls really miss playing outside but it's just been to hot. Sadie is getting so big and talking so much lately. Her newest phrase is "Help Me!" when she wants get something out of reach of get out of her crib. Her and Anna have spent so much playtime together this summer and I know she is going to miss Anna so much when school starts. Anna's new thing this summer has been spending the night with Nina and Pappy and with Lelli at Kimberly's new house in The Woodlands. She wants to spend the night with anyone who will let her! She's growing up so fast. Anyway it's been a while so I wanted to share some pictures of Father's Day and July 4...

New Baby Sheptock Coming...

Just wanted everyone to know we found out we are having a...GIRL!! We're all very excited but Anna was quite frank with the doctor and told him she was hoping for a boy to name him Samson.. The doctor told her God's plan was for her to have another sister. Just wanted to post a quick announcement, I'll hopefully get some new pictures up this weekend. Our scheduled c section date is November 7.

Kindergarten Graduation & New Glasses for Anna!!!

We are so proud of Anna! She graduated Kindergarten from Alpha Omega Academy. She had such a wonderful year partly because of the fact that God sent us the most amazing teacher, Mrs. Smith and partly because Anna LOVES school. At the end of the year they asked her her favorite thing about school and while most kids said art or recess, Anna told them everything! She has learned so much, she can read small books and is also adding, subtracting, and doing word problems. Here are a few pictures of the big day. Sadie was sick so she didn't get to join us for the ceremony:( Anna also now wears glasses. I think she looks so beautiful in them. At first she cried because she really didn't want to wear them but now she thinks they are quite the fashion statement!

Anna and her new friend Sonya Isaacs..


We had an awesome time in TN. We didn't relax much but really were too excited to do that anyway. Jon sang on Saturday night, a solo, Because He Lives and received a standing ovation well before the song was over. On Sunday night he sang again with the entire Gaither group on stage and then stood and did the last solo of the night, Blessed Assurance, of course another standing ovation. We appreciate all of your thoughts and we are thankful for the prayers, we needed them, I won't bore you with the details..But our God is always victorious if we give Him the reigns! Jon's table was mobbed with people and he sold MANY cd's and dvd's. I would say the best part was meeting people from all over, Sweden, Brazil and numerous other states and hearing there stories and being blessed because of the evidence of God working in all of our lives. Jon loved being a part of it all and all the artist were so nice, I can't even explain how welcome we felt, and they all encouraged Jon continually throughout the whole thing. Anna became a little star herself, she loved the music and has made a new friend, Sonya Isaacs, lead singer and mandolin player for The Isaacs, they are awesome, check them out... www.theisaacs.com She also became quite friendly with the boys from Signature Sound and was star struck when the leader, Ernie kissed her cheek:) They gave her a tshirt and she has worn it every chance she gets! She put away the Jon Sheptock tshirt.:) Sadie had a fun time also and her favorite part was riding rides at a mini carnival we went to twice. The girls were both great and we put them through some very late nights and no naps! We are so thankful for all of the friends and family who came and helped. We wouldn't have been able to make it through without them. Another wonderful thing is Jon's mom was able to come. We were so happy to see her and Jon had a very special time with her. Okay, now some pictures...
