Did ya’ wonder where I went to? I am here. Making lists. Making menus. Changing diapers. Beginning potty training. Picking up groceries. Swatting flies…cause flies are everywhere this time of year!
(the kids making welcome signs for our new Associate Pastor and his wife – Keith & Jamie & their three little ones – Welcome!)
As spring has hit and the garden is growing I am excited to see my corn popping up.
Sunflowers from last year spread all over (we love them!) Gladys found some strawberry plants growing (we gave up on them last year) and planted a new garden filled with herbs and veggies.
The weather is perfect for visiting with friends.
Rosie and her sweet friend Naomi. These two are three months apart. When they see each other they hug, hold hands and jabber in a language that only they understand. They get along wonderfully :-)
My handsome green eyes and me just before he left with the boys on their Dirt Bike Advetnure!
I love you Handsome!
Beautiful pictures taken by my friend, Danielle, of Abel and Addi.
Danielle is so creative. Whenever I need a shot of creativity I go visit her :-)
Abel and Addi will be adding a new brother or sister to their family this Jan/Feb :-) Did you catch that? *I* now have THREE grand-dumplings…one is still cooking ;-)
My life seems to be overflowing with goodness. Like this sweet girlie of mine. She blesses us daily. She’s funny. She gets right to the point. She says “thing-a-ma-jig" and I understand her. She loves her beautiful hair. She’s like a little energizer bunny and extremely creative. I enjoy all our moments together.
The other day I received a text from my son, Gunnar. He sends me a bible verse every morning. This particular morning Gracie was sitting next to me and part of it read “hold onto Grace” (Hebrews 12:28) I immediately grabbed her arm (startling her) and read the verse out loud. She just shook her head and laughed at her silly Mama. Now whenever she is close by I “hold onto Grace” :-) Love you girlie!
So this Mama is busy being blessed and working on my empty page that is suppose to have my menu on it. All the while being attentive to the 2yr old who now likes to go potty on the toilet. Busy times. Blessed by the presence of a loving God and a loving husband. We all mingle here together and some how our life just keeps getting better and better.
