Frosty the Snowman

Snow came to our world back in December and the kids took to the snowsuits and snow everyday. They worked really hard to make their snowman. Brittany is a friend from church who the kids adore. She helped out on this particular day and they loved it. I just love the intensity of putting together the final touches.

Boys Will Be Boys!

For some time, I have wanted to find a play kitchen for my boys. We used to have one for Lynnea that was in pretty bad shape. I got rid of it thinking that the boys would have other interests. However, they love to play with "food" and play with other children's kitchens when they have them. Over the weekend, God gave us a kitchen! It is so much fun! The kids have set up several times, cook food and prepare for each other.

This is what I wasn't expecting, but should have known it was coming....You gotta love it!

Can they really be "4"???

I took these pictures last fall and forgot all about posting them. It was so much fun. Noah and Samuel loved being on a "photo shoot" all by themselves.
Noah's pretty smileSamuel flashes his pearly white teeth tooI love watching them laugh (especially at each other).

I will try and put out some pics of the big party next time!

Happy New Year!

A new year has begun with so many new hopes and dreams. I remember once again how blessed I am to enjoy a wonderful family. With each new year, our children are simple reminders of God's grace poured on our lives. When I was on my bed reading my Bible on January 1st, I was praying about what lives God would want me to reach out to. A quiet voice said, "start with your children". I was so thankful for that. Joseph was "supposed" to be taking a nap on my bed. We have long prayed that Joseph would make the choice to follow Jesus with his life. I began to once again share Christ's sacrifice and redemptive plan to Joseph. He said, "sometime I want to do that". The very next day as I was getting ready, he came into the bathroom and announced, "there are two things I want to do today...1)go play in the snow and 2)I want to ask Jesus into my heart". What an exciting day to rejoice with the angels of heaven as Joseph stepped into the hope of today and eternity. Thank you Father for those quiet words to reach my children...reminding me once again that reaching them is my very first priority.

Can't wait to spend eternity with you Joe!
