Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Here's My Little Man

Happy Birthday Brecken

Yesterday was Brecken's 5th birthday. I can't believe she is five. I really do feel like it was just yesterday that I was holding her in my arms. She is a precious child and we are so blessed to have her in our family. Hope you had a great day Brecky butt.
Here she is with all of her birthday gifts. She made out pretty well for a five year old.

I know a repeat of the same picture but it was so cute!!!!

This is mommy's first try at cake making. It was pretty fun and I think it looks pretty good for my first try. I will have more cakes to show as we have more birthdays.

A Long Week

I am so glad that these past two weeks are almost over. Last week i was dealing with a very sick little boy. He had RSV and was miserable. Daddy got called out of town and so mommy was doing sick duty all by herself. I knew I would be fine it was the baby I was worried about. I did not want him to end up in the hospital. Well the lord took care of all of us and he was doing better within a couple of days. By the third night with Daddy out of town and the baby not sleeping well I was pretty tired. It was about 1:45 in the morning and Levi had fallen back to sleep after being nursed and cuddled. I was getting ready to walk out of his room when I put my hand on his crib and said,"Lord please bless both of us with some sleep." Well guess what? Levi slept for 8 hours. I was so thankful and I even felt rested. Thank you Lord for caring about the little things. This week has just been long because I am going on a short trip to see friends and family next week. So I think I am just excited. Needless to say I will be glad when this week is over.

5 Months Already

Here is my little man. He is getting bigger and bigger everyday. What fun all of girls have dressing him up in little boy clothes. It is so much fun having a little boy. I really never thought i would be saying that. The girls love having a little boy to dress up just as much as mommy and daddy. He will definitely always feel loved. Happy 5 month b-day Levi.

Our Royal Tea Party Part 1

About a month ago the two older girls came to me and asked me if they could surprise their sisters with a royal tea party. I told them that would be a wonderful idea. the two girls took over and began making plans for this day. they made invitations and asked Daddy and Levi to be the girls escort. Here is Daddy and Levi relaxing in a recliner since there wasn't enough room at the table. I think the men really didn't mind not having a seat.
All the girls enjoying their treats.
Here they are being served by their hostess Emily and Maclae.

And here is a picture of the beautifully decorated table. I think the girls did a grand job and everyone had fun. I will post pictures later of the girls all dancing with their Dad.

Where Has The Time Gone?

I can't believe it. My first born son is almost five months old. It is not fair how fast they grow. Sometimes I just want to freeze time and not let him grow one more inch. But we all know that is not what God gave us these beautiful gifts for. He gave them to us up to be Godly sons and daughters who will love the Lord and follow Him all the days of their lives. So that is what we as parents try to do raise them to be Godly adults along with lots of prayer.

So back to my first thought. Where has the time gone. Levi is scooting and getting up on his hands and knees already and it makes mommy sad. I watch him becoming more and more independent every day. He will be 5 months old in just a few days and I feel like it has only been a few weeks since I gave birth to him. I am really just working on enjoying him and all my children because I know before I know it they will be grown and gone. I love all you kiddos and I love watching you all grow. Love Mommy!!!!
