Driving the Tractor

Josh was helping Daddy drive the tractor from the barn yard to the garden, bringing scoops of manure to be turned under this week. He is a good driver and regularly drives (on my lap) back to Grandma Rose's house when we go for a visit. May 11, 2008.

Mother's Day Sabbath

Aren't those the cutest kids you've ever seen?! Definitely a crew a Mother can be proud of! HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! May 10, 2008.

Cowboy Toad

Josh was goofing off with a hat Colby had brought home, saying he was giving his "grumpy" look. May 7, 2007.

Birthday Girl

Yep, I'm pretty sure she is proud of her post-cupcake mess! (this is after I cleaned most of it off!) May 6, 2008.


After we helped Elayna blow out her candle, she stuck out her hand and grabbed the cake, getting a good taste of the frosting! LOL! Then we took one of the cupcakes and Daddy helped her get started. After that it was all over for the cupcake! She dug right in and absolutely LOVED it! It was funny! She ate every bit of that cupcake and would have had seconds in a heartbeat! It made me think of Josh and Emmy's first birthdays. Josh didn't care for his cake and didn't know what to do with it, and Emmy liked the taste okay, but couldn't get past how gooey and sticky her cake was and didn't want to get her hands dirty. None of that for Elayna! I think she was pretty proud of the mess she made! May 6, 2008.

The Cake

Elayna got a little lambie cake for her first birthday! May 6, 2008.

Opening Presents!

Opening the presents was a group effort! The last one was a Dora Playhut that all three kids were pretty excited about! May 6, 2008.

My Three Kids

We got a quick shot of the three of 'em before they opened Elayna's birthday presents. May 6, 2008.


Funny thing is: I didn't remember planting these tulips, or the other ones by the back door, or the Narcissus by the front door, until they started coming up this spring! And then I had dim memories of planting some bulbs sometime around the middle or end of September, when Joshua's surgery was so heavy on my mind. I'm so glad I have these cheery reminders of God's promise of new life! May 6, 2008.

More Pictures of Elayna

We call Elayna our little Firecracker! She has quite a personality. In the first picture she was playing the piano and singing, and in the second she was sharing with Daddy her most valued possession, the Binky! She loves her little rocking chair, and frequently freaks me out by standing on the seat and holding on to the back. She is more cuddly and kissy than the other two were at this age, and she's also the most quick-tempered! She is old enough now to defend herself when Emmy gets grabby, and now and then she'll get a hold of Emmy's pigtails and reef on them! ( is a favorite time for this...) I can't believe she'll be ONE next week! April 30, 2008.
