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.

Future Mother of America

I asked Creighton to please put the baby to sleep for me. He was fussy and needed a nap. I went in to the living room and found her crocheting and singing to him and he was sound asleep in her arms. What a great mother she will make some day.

Kharis is 5

I don't know where the last 5 years have gone. I can still remember the day I had Kharis,like it was just yesterday. She has grown up so fast. She brings much joy and laughter to our family. I often find Kharis playing in her room or outside singing all by herself. The Lord has filled this child with a joyful spirit. Happy Birthday Kharis.
Here she is after she opened all her presents. Kharis loves Little House on the Prairie so we got her a bonnet for her birthday. She loves it so much she has only taken it off for bedtime.

Spa day

A day at the spa. i had gone to the grocery store and came home to this scene. The youngest of the girls was getting pampered by her older sisters. What a life of luxury. The girls said, "We didn't have any cucumbers so we taped cotton pads to her eyes. I couldn't help but laugh. I told them if they had looked they would have found the cucumbers in the refrigerator. They had also taped these cotton pads to Levi and he was trying to ride his little bike with them on. I will post a picture of this later. I thought he was playing the blind man in the Bible, but no he was having a spa treatment also. Poor guy.

A little late but this is Uriah when he is just a little over 2 months old. Isn't he cute.

May 7th 2011 (A day we will never forget)

May 7th 2011 is a day that we have all been looking forward to for the past three years. Daddy went back to school in May of 2008 and for the past three years he has had many hats to wear. Husband, father, employee, student, counselor, fixer, get the picture. During those three years we experienced the birth of our first son, lost our second son before we even got to hold him and gave birth to our third son just 2 months before he graduated. It has been a long haul not only for daddy but for all of us. We are all so proud of his work he has accomplished. Daddy graduated with a 3.9, but we give him a 4.0 in our household. We are so proud of you Daddy and we look forward to spending time with you this summer.
The little ones wanted to take one more walk outside before the ceremony started.
Yeah!!!!! He did it.
Waiting to have his name finally announced after a long three years. We really are proud of you. I am thankful God has blessed me with such a Godly and hard working provider. I know I was not always very supportive but believe me when I say I am very proud of you and i know you did this for your family.
