Recently we put a new banner up on the Blog. Have you noticed it? I wanted to announce our new addition at 12 weeks, but because I obviously am showing and people were guessing we put the banner up early.
My prayer is that each one will learn the reality of salvation, God will change their lives, and because of Christ in their life, many others will SEE Christ and learn of the Saviour.
Because of Michael’s medicine: God could call this little one home, God could allow us to have a special needs child, or God could give us a miracle.
The truth: my attitude is really what matters in the whole scheme of things. I need to keep my focus on Jesus and not my imperfect life.
Serenity Grace turned nine on Saturday February 15th!!
*Disclaimer: I realize most of these pictures are blurry. I've found out it's really hard to get a nice pic of people who are moving really fast. So...most of the pictures are blurryish. I have a setting on my camera for moving things, but it wasn't set on it. Lesson learned:)
Those up there ^^^^ are known to us as 'dough things'. I have no idea what they are supposed to be called. They're made of bread dough, filled with taco meat and cheese, and baked in the oven at 350*F. Very delicious!!
shhh...Don't tell Sis, but I've broken into the blog! :) I just thought that I'd say HI! :)
Our family celebrated Mom's birthday on Thursday by going to Chipotle! Then we came home for some homemade chocolate cake.
Birthday's are a very special occasion at our house!! Most of the kids make cards and buy gift at the dollar store for the birthday person. You never know what you might get, but its usually something you've "always wanted" :)
We don't usually celebrate Valentine's day, but this year the little kids had enough of us telling about exchanging cards and making mailboxes and getting candy when we four older kids were in a Christian school. So this year we saved all of our oatmeal boxes and shoe boxes and made mailboxes.
I'll try to get as many pictures up, but our internet is not being nice today so I might not be able to get all of them.
So Happy Valentine's Day a day late!!!!!
Btw, it's Serenity's birthday today so don't be surprised if you see another post tomorrow or something. I know, shocker, I wrote two posts in the same week!!
These days have been very, very busy!! Last week we three older girls went to a birthday party two hours away so we had to make arrangements. We left the day after the Great Snowstorm.
I was just about to add a picture, but I forgot I left my camera at church. So, pictures later:)
Anyway, we invited the church family to watch the Bill Nye vs. Ken Ham debate at church on Tuesday. There was supposed to be some snow, but the weather guys kept changing how much we were going to get and we rarely get tons of snow anyway.
It started snowing even before the debate started and didn't let up for a very long time.
We had some guys plowing the driveway (our church is on a big hill) and then someone directing traffic to make sure no one slipped. The snow was coming down so fast, they basically plowed, let a car go down, and plowed again.
Here's a picture I found on my iPod.
I can't remember which big snow that was....it was either the first one before the debate or the second one. My brain is fried:)
Anyway here's another one. Actually, the roads are plowed in this one so it might have been the first snow thing. Oh well, it is pretty anyway!!
Like I said, we went to a birthday party two hours away. Our mom took us and then she went to our grandparent's house (her parents) to visit.
We had an awesome time! We went sledding down an amazingly steep and bumpy hill. We went shopping, except without the money:) And we played in the snow and did lots of other fun stuff!!
We have three important holidays this week!!
Mom's birthday on Thursday, Valentines Day on Friday, and Serenity's birthday on Saturday. Busy week:)
I will get my camera tomorrow and have pictures sometime....maybe not Thursday, but maybe Friday or Saturday or Sunday or something like that.
But we had to leave:( and now we're home again.
But mom isn't here so it's a little harder to do everything...like school. I don't think I've done an entire day of school since last Tuesday. But that's ok cause I have a Biology test I haven't exactly studied for yet:)
I will take it eventually though. Maybe Friday.
Happy almost Valentine's Day!!!
