Prayer Needed

Please pray for our friend, Josh Buck and his family. They have already suffered through tremendous loss in the past couple of years as they lost their 4 month old daughter very unexpectedly. Now Josh has been in a serious accident and needs our prayers for a full recovery. They could also use our financial support. To see details about giving and about how you can pray specifically, go to the Greenhouse Ministries website.

Thank you friends.

Our New Home

Part of the reason we chose this house was because of the great shelves in this room and in our room. We made this into a toy room/office and put all of the boys in one room together. This is working really well for play time, but sleeping is still a bit of a struggle. They're improving though. All three of them are starting to play together really well, which is a nice breath of fresh air for mom and dad.

Our room has the same great shelves and the headboard and paint color matched our own things surprisingly well.

This is the other half of the toy room- the office half.

This is the living room and the opening in the wall is to the kitchen/ dining area.

New Bunk Beds

Thank you Grammie and Great Grammie for our new beds!
We all got new Cars pillows since Micah got a new Cars comforter.
Who knew that bunk beds could provide so much entertainment?
This will probably be one of those pictures that gets pulled out at every graduation and wedding.

Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah after running: My heart is beating like a coconut rolling down a hill.
Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
