Soooo Different...



I surprised the little's with a trip to the Dollar Store. They each could pick 2 things. I marvel at how very different they are from one another.


Connor~AKA~Mr. Mechanical, picked a flashlight and a tape measure. He spent the rest of the time in the store measuring everything he could and hasn't put it down yet! He's measured each of us, the counter, the bookshelf, how far he's walked from one room to the other, etc. :) The batteries in the flashlight are already on the fritz because he has been using it nonstop since we got home. He keeps telling me he can't wait until it gets dark so he can use his flashlight. LOL!

Gabriella~AKA~The Princess, picked out wall stickers for her bedroom. You will never guess what it says....PRINCESS! LOL! Her next item was butterfly wings. We put them on her as soon as we got in the door and she's been wearing them since. She said "mommy, just wait until daddy sees me like a butterfly." :)

Kyalynn~AKA~Our Song, first decided on wall stickers that were just ABC's and then a Dora ribbon flag. However, when we were going thru the last aisle she spotted books and that did it. LOL! She instead chose two books. She is our bookworm and would always choose books over anything else, except maybe animals. :) She has an amazing memory and so after reading her books aloud to her she already has them down and has been "reading" them to herself this afternoon. She's too funny! :)

Nolan~AKA~Our Laughter, didn't want anything. Can you believe it?! I offered him a ball, a book and some toys but he wasn't interested. Guess he's just not that into the Dollar Store yet but give him time I'm sure he'll come around eventually. LOL!

What a huge difference a few dollars can do. How fun! My girls think the Dollar Store is the best. Maybe you should have bought some extra batteries for the flashlight with Nolans bucks. ;o)

Are You Ready?

As a pastor, I'm often called upon when life "vanishes like a mist." One of the most powerful examples I've seen of this was Stan Gerlach, a successful businessman who was well known in the community. Stan was giving a eulogy at a memorial service when he decided to share the gospel. At the end of his message, Stan told the mourners, "You never know when God is going to take your life. At that moment, there's nothing you can do about it. Are you ready?" Then Stan sat down, fell over and died. His wife and sons tried to resuscitate him, but there was nothing they could do - just as Stan had said a few minutes earlier.
I'll never forget receiving that phone call and heading over to the Gerlach house. John, a son, stepped out of the car weeping. He asked me, "Did you hear the story? Did you hear? I'm so proud of him. My dad died doing what he loved doing most. He was telling people about Jesus."  I was asked to share a word with everyone ga…

The Old Rugged Cross...

Sean and the guys are between jobs right now and so Zachary has been helping me with odd jobs here around the house. It has been a HUGE blessing to me!  Leaves I never finished raking are finally removed, a campfire pit has been built, a shed sorted and organized (Hallelujah!) and best of all, my Old Rugged Cross is erected! Isn't it terrific?! I've been wanting to build one since watching the Fireproof movie. Zack situated it so I can see it when I look out the window over my kitchen sink. :) He outdid himself on it. He really roughed up the wood and even burnt it to give it that ruggedness I love. There are nail marks in it too. As Zachary carried the cross to set it up Kyalynn kept saying, "look, it's Jesus the Christ, yes it is". LOL! The kids love visiting the cross and this morning Connor was excited to tell me that he was praying at the cross and talking with Jesus. So glad.

Now she's....

11! Can hardly believe our precious, tiny, happy girl is 11 years old!  She's the first one home and I have no doubt that her contagious joy  helped propel us on to adopt 4 more times. :) 



She is a lover of all things but especially birthdays! If she hears it's someones' birthday she gets so excited and plans to be at their party even if she wasn't invited. LOL! She's been diligently reminding us every.single.day sometimes every.minute.of.every.day that her birthday was coming up. There were only two things she wanted.....a Veggie Tales Lord of the Beans dvd and a harp. Yes, you read that right....a harp! Oh my, this girl is a big dreamer but that's better than not dreaming at all! :) So Sean and I set our brains to thinking how we could pull this off for our girl and my man came through!! Check out this beautiful harp he threw together. 

And it's the perfect size for her and even plays music! Sweet! Kyalynn was thrilled and is so cute playing her harp. She als…
