This is what happens every time we milk!
Last weekend Kanah, Elly, Dad and I went up North for ICHE’s leadership dinner and some other meetings. We were so happy to see some of our friends.We haven’t seen them since October! So it was fun catching up. We went to our friends, the Lewis’, house for the night. Since they had snow, we had a snow day! Here are some pictures from the weekend.
After having 5 wonderful brothers in a row, it sure was nice to get two little princesses. They are the sweetest little girls that you will ever meet. Here are some pictures of our little princesses!
Well, thanks so much for reading about our little angels! I hope that your day is as sweet as that lollipop (just ask Gedi if it was good )!
“People have often asked me the reason for my greatness. I look back to my childhood when I was taught not to speak but rather to listen when in the presence of adults, and I learned much in doing so.”
This past Saturday-Sunday the girls (Kashaiah, Gracie, Kanah, Elly and Mom) went down to the cabin for Elly’s birthday. They had a great time together being extremely lazy . Here are some pictures from their excursion…
Elly ate fun dip on the way down and it made her teeth turn blue

Since the Garden of Eden, man has been in a spiritual struggle between the forces of good and evil. There is attack and counter attack as the momentum of the battle ebbs and flows according to the will and purposes of God. This war is not fought on foreign battlefields but in the hearts and minds of man. Swords and guns have been replaced with words and ideas, both of which have powerful intergenerational consequences. The present season finds a compromised church who has lost her distinctiveness and is falling headlong into the abyss of irrelevance. The glorious news is that Christ always has a remnant through whom He works His will, and the heavenly focus is not on what the masses do but on the obedience of that remnant. We pray to God that we–and our children–will be that faithful remnant. It is therefore imperative for us parents to teach our children the fear of the Lord and equip them with the Biblical knowledge they need to engage the culture.
|Many Christians are presently walking in fear as faith in Christ can easily give way to fear of man when we lose Biblical perspective. What we fail to remember is God is not shaken and at some of the darkest times in Israel’s history, when the enemy was pressing in, God raised up godly men and women to meet the enemy head on and through them wrought great deliverances. There was Gideon’s 300, Jonathan and his armor bearer, David running toward Goliath, or mighty men like Jashobeam, Benaiah, and Eleazar; this list goes on and on.|
|It is our greatest hope that this day will help blow a fresh vision that causes each man to whole-heartedly embrace their duty as protector and leader and for each woman to learn what it means to be that invaluable help-meet and virtuous wife in which her husband can completely trust. May each you also find time to smile, fellowship, give and receive encouragement, and leave with a sense that we each experienced a moment of eternal grace from the Holy Spirit.

As most of you know Maximus Meridius arrived home on Monday. Well, he is supposed to be living in the pole barn until he is old enough to live outside. However, he keeps getting out. So he comes into the house at night and sleeps at the foot of my bed (no exaggeration). Anyway, I need to find a solution because my room has straw all over it and smells like goat (not a bad thing). It is so funny to watch him get out. He goes to the same place every time. For those who have brothers, I’m sure you will agree, they are always asking for food. My brothers go through the house constantly asking, “When is it time to eat?” So, do you want to know where I found Maximus? In the kitchen in the pole barn. The first time he was in a corner. The pictures will explain where he was the next two times…
How in the world he jumped up on the counter-top I will never know!
So here is my conclusion, brothers and goats have something in common–the only thing they think about is food!
P.S. Dad said I had to wash everything out before we have company-rest easy:).
We recently finished listening to Under Drakes Flag audio drama which was endorsed by Glen Beck. It was amazing! They really bring G.A Henty’s story to life! The people who played the characters really became their character! We would highly recommend it! Audio dramas are great because time flies by in the car, it quiets the kids before bed, and it is enjoyable for the whole family!
