Computer Difficulties.

Although computers are a blessing and a big help in many areas, it seems they break down far too often. We will not be posting here for sometime due to numerous computer problems. Hopefully, we should be able to start posting again in a few weeks, once we get everything straightened out.

Our Joy Girl!!

Phoebe is our little ray of sunshine!!! She is very joyful and sensitive with a bubbling, sparkling, smiling attitude that is a delight to watch.
Here are two recent pictures that capture a glimpse of her personality!!! :)
All dressed up; prim and proper for a dainty tea-party at Scott and Lydia's.

Trying on Seth's work hat and sun-glasses!! :)
I thought those two shots were too cute to pass up!!!! :)
Anyway, today we had a semi-typical day, Dad had to work over-time at school last week and this week so they rewarded him with a day off. He worked at the factory in the morning and then came home and got Mommy for a little 2 day get-away. :)
We are finishing up the school for this week, straightening up the house and enjoying the mild weather!!! We got some rain Wednesday, and it sure is a blessing. We had barely any snow this winter and we really need the moisture.
Noah, our faithful gardener is working hard to get the garden soil in top condition for planting. For most of the vegetables, it will be a few weeks until they get in the ground but the potatoes are ready for planting. Noah also has several seeds started in the mini-greenhouse which will later be transplanted.
The rain also urged our daffodils, irises and tulips to pop up little green shoots. We look forward to seeing the flowers they produce!!!
Signing Off!!!!

The Birthday Meal.

Our family tradition is to give the birthday boy (or girl) the privilege of selecting a special meal on their birthday. Moses decided on shrimp stir-fry, a yummy treat indeed!!!!!

Esther cooks the shrimp while Moses looks on excitedly!!! :)

The finished product; rice, carrots, celery, onions, peppers, zuchini- all that good stuff!!!

The completed meal..........steak strips for those who don't care for shrimp, the shrimp and veggies.
Happy Birthday Moses!!! :) Posted by Picasa

Another Nephew!!!

And here is the other adorable little nephew, Paul Anson, who is a growing young man too at 3 months and one week!!! Ah, nephews!!!! Posted by Picasa


Okay!!! This is exciting, we've got pictures!!!!!!! This is our very cute little nephew, Justice Shepard! But of course, this is a 'old' picture, taken when he was only 2 days old, and now, he is a growing young man at the age of 3 months!!!
Wow!!! Stay Tuned, now that I've gotten this figured out, we'll be posting lots of pictures!!! (Hopefully!) Posted by Picasa


Last year, as we celebrated Mom's birthday, there was quite a arguement on how old she was turning. Unfortunately, I came away from the celebration thinking Mom was a year older then she really was, so I put on here that she was 48 years old.
But, let it be known that today, Mom is 47-years-young!
(Sorry Mom!!!!)

Happy Birthday MOM!!!!!!!!

Today we celebrate Mom's 48th birthday.
Happy Birthday Mom!! Thank-you for being our Mom-you are the best!! May God Bless you for your constant care for this family!!!!! We love you!!!!! :)

Life if busy!!!

It is always nice to have a 'down' day, relaxing, spending time as a family, and getting prepared for another week. This past Sunday was such a day for our family, and it was nice!!! The weather was nice so we children spent a bunch of time outside, playing volleyball. It actually seems like we are getting a bit better at it!!!! The time the ball spends in the air, in comparison to the time it spends on the ground is starting to even out a little bit!!! :)
Last week Charity got a fever and has been sick up until today. Silas and Micah are sick too, but not as bad as Charity was. The Lord has been gracious and (so far) no one else has gotten sick!!! Please pray that the sick ones would soon recover!!!

Yesterday was Scott and Lydia's first wedding anniversary.........has is really been a year already!!! It seems like yesterday we had just met Scott!!!! And now, they have one year of happily married life under their belts, the sweetest little munchkin on earth (besides his little cousin!) and years more to look forward to!!! Happy Anniversary Scott and Lydia!!!!!!! :)
That's All for now!
