March has been a jam-packed month already, and we are not through with it yet!  Here are some pictures from some of the activities we've done this month. 

Abby's birthday cookie

The month began with celebrating Abby's 25th birthday, in a nice way at home with family and our church small group.  She wanted a chocolate chip cookie, so Phoebe obliged by making a giant one in the largest skillet we own.

On the 8th, we went to Dallas to help Caleb and Claudia celebrate their 1st wedding anniversary.  A lot of the wedding party was able to be there, and we had a grand time visiting and enjoying yummy Italian food.

We had a great weekend in Dallas visiting with family, including Jim and Naomi, who were in from Germany.  

Youth group outing to Main Event as part of our spring break activities

This past weekend we had fun with our youth group at church - lock in on Friday night, including games of sand volleyball, mud kickball (we had just gotten a LOT of rain), shaving cream twister, hungry hungry hippo, Wii, and lots of laughing, and talking.  Saturday morning we headed to Dallas to spend the day playing at Main Event.

Sunday we celebrated Mom's birthday, with the Dallas Kautt krew coming up, along with our cousins Jason and Jessica.  It was a super wonderful day together, visiting, eating great food and playing fun games.

So, our month has been a great one so far, and we are sure that there will be even more fun things to come in the remaining days.


Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
