Welcome....Here's a glimpse of our happenings!

The verses that have REALLY spoken to me (Sarah) lately....

"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." Matthew 7:24-25

Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that your brothers throughout the world are undergoing the same kind of sufferings. I Peter 5:8-9

From one man he made every nation of men, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he determined the times set for them and the exact places where they should live. God did this so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. For in him we live and move and have our being. As some of your own poets have said, 'We are his offspring.' Acts 17:26-28

May the words of my mouth and the mediation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock, and my Redeemer. Psalm 19:14

So be careful to do what the Lord your God has commanded you; do not turn aside to the right or to the left. Walk in all the way that the Lord your God has commanded you, so that you may live and prosper and prolong your days in the land that you will possess. Deuteronomy 5:32-33

God, our God, will take care of the hidden things but the revealed things are our business. It's up to us and our children to attend to all the terms in this Revelation. Deuteronomy 29:29 (The Message)

A Little Bit More Flashback....

This past week, Kate rode in a shopping cart like a big girl for the first time....She thought she was BIG STUFF! I had this on Facebook and Instagram, but in case you want to see it again....OR, if you aren't a friend of mine on Facebook or a follower on Instagram.... AND, for the flashback....here's Luke -- the first time he rode in a shopping cart like a big boy! Luke was right around the same age as Kate is now! Earlier this month, Marc gave Luke a haircut -- as Marc generally does. Luke sat on the chair SO VERY NICELY -- no tears, no fit, etc. etc. etc. AND, he even agreed to wear a cape (we usually have to brush hair off of him the entire time because he had refused to wear a cape nor did he care for the hair on him)....Honestly, I thought Luke looked like a little man getting his hair cut.... AND, for the flashback -- we gave Luke his first haircut when he was 10 1/2 months old -- about a month older than Kate is now. It was warm enough to do on the deck. His first haircut went well...BUT, I can't say that the last almost 4 years of haircuts have always been pleasant. Here's Luke's "Before Shot" on the first haircut... And, the "After Shot" on the first haircut.... Why did our baby boy have more hair as a baby than our baby girl currently does? Oh well -- she will get hair eventually. I just want to put something girly in her hair, and no offense to anybody, I just personally don't care for bows on the head.

Bethany was over 2 before she had much hair. I actually had someone ask me why I dressed my boy in pink! It was one of the few Not-a-hand-me-down things that I had. Bethany now has gobs of gorgeous hair. No worries. And she is a cutie even still. :-)

I love the knit hats that Kate wears. You could attach a flower, but really, no need as she's absolutely adorable!
