He did not attend church for many years. It grieved my soul. However, when I would pray about what i could do, a… Continue reading Returned with Honor
Winter is upon us. Rain has become the norm. I've missed rain. It's a welcome sight. John installed a new water filter. I am so glad!!! I love to drink water, but filtered water is so much better than tap water! I worked a couple concerts at school. Hannah and Lilli are silly girls. They… Continue reading Family Friday – Keeping Busy

This week was an eventful week. First, we had Halloween. Hannah made her costume... she went as Trash. She made a skirt out of duct tape and grocery bags and then attached trash all over it.

This week we celebrated our #2 daughter's birthday. This daughter is amazing (as are all my children). She had a high bilirubin count when she was born. She slept in a suitcase with a bilirubin light for several days. She was a very easy baby... goo at sleeping and eating. As she grew she was… Continue reading One More Older and Wiser Too!
