I can't believe that 16 years ago today I gave birth to my first child. She was a little girl and mommy was so excited. She had thick black hair and big brown eyes. Her father and I were in awe. Well 16 years later we are still in awe. She is a beautiful young lady who loves the Lord and seeks to live her life according to His will. I am so blessed and so thankful to call her my daughter.
Happy Birthday Emily. I love you and am so very proud of you!!!

The children have settled in and seem to be adjusting well to their new home. We are trying to get ready for the Christmas season, but not really feeling it this year.
My oldest is turning 16 in 9 days. Where has the time gone. She is such a blessing and a help to her momma and her whole family.
Well that is all for now. I will try to blog more, but I am not even sure if there is anyone still out there.

I stop her and say,"No. There were no mules but we are not going to talk about this again."
I was not going down the road of animals mating this time.
So The almost 10 year old pops up and says in a serious, but cute, matter of fact voice,
"Noah built an ark and God sent the animals in 2 by 2. Not 2 males not 2 females, but a MALE and a FEMALE, to repopulate the earth. The End.
I guess she has it all figured out.

Now on to the house. We had gone to church on Sunday and Marc had asked for prayer for us to find a house we could afford in our rental budget. We stayed for our usual fellowship l inch and then had an appointment to look at a house that was about 10 minutes from church. We looked at the house wrote a check for the deposit and moved in about 3 weeks later. Now we live 10 minutes from church and about 20 minutes from daddy's work. God is so good how he works all the details out. A year ago I would have never seen us living here and I never thought my hubby could be happy with the company he was working for. We persevered this trial and the Lord blessed us many, many times over.
One more little note. A cute note to say the least. Last night during dinner our 8 year old was telling Daddy about a mule that she saw at her friends house. He went on to tell her that you could only get a mule if the a donkey and horse are bred together. The conversation goes on with the questions of how come mules can 't have babies? Then well how do they mate? As it keeps going I am thinking to my self I really don't want to have this conversation right now. Our little 5 year old finally chimes in with ," If they can't have babies they could adopt." We all laughed and were thankful for a little change of topic. But then again the 8 year old asks, " Well how do they mate daddy?" "By clicking their heels together." This was her answer and this is how the conversation ended for now...... We will discuss it at a much more appropriate age. For now in our family we have come to the conclusion that mules can adopt if they can't have babies, and that they mate by clicking their heels together. Nice way to end the dinner conversation.
I'm glad to be back and I hope I haven't lost all of my followers.
Have a blessed week.

Wow I can't believe how long it has been since I posted. Everything went smoothly on the closing of the house and we made arrangements for us to stay in the house until May 1st. So our life has not really changed that much yet. We are beginning to look at houses closer to Daddy's work for the time being. He is still looking for another job and we are just waiting on the Lord to show us what direction he wants us to go. It has been a little up and down the past few months. We thought for sure Dad would get the job that is his dream job. Made it all the way to the last interview and then found out a week later that he was # 6 and there were 5 positions. Heartbreaking to say the least. We are trying to be still and listen tot he Lord because we were sure this is where he was leading us. We are thankful that Daddy has a job and we will just wait and see what happens next.
So that is about all that has been happening in our neck of the woods.
We had a birthday a couple of days ago. #5 turned 8 and she will be taking horse lessons for her birthday. Grandparents are visiting for her birthday and the soon to be 1 year old birthday. I will try to post some pictures and try to blog more often.

It was an exciting year for our family. The Lord blessed our family with another healthy little boy to love, Uriah Beau joined our family on March 3rd and what joyous day that was.
Daddy graduated in May with honors and the search for a new career began. Still searching but praying we are closer and that there will be a possible job change in the future.
Our oldest daughter began her first year of High school this year. Very exciting for all of us . We have been homeschooling from the very beginning and have enjoyed the benefits of teaching our children.
The end of the year brought us some exciting news so hopefully in a few more weeks I can share what that news is. For now please be praying that Lord continues to work out all the details and that we would praise Him with whatever answer we receive.
Happy New Year May the Lord be first and foremost in your life.
