2 Months...


I just love how Samuel is looking at Ryan with such adoration in his eyes. LOL!
 Samuel Tobias (affectionately known as Samuel T around here) is 2 months old already. (Actually, he was 2 months last Friday but I'm running a bit behind, LOL!)
His numbers are 9 lbs. 4 oz and he is now a whopping 20 1/2 inches long! I believe he is trying to grow into his feet! LOL! This boy has big feet. They remind me of jack rabbit feet, so, so cute! 
Of course every itty bitty morsel of him is too stinkin' cute!
 He is a happy, content little guy and the only time he cries is when he is hungry and then he wants it right NOW! LOL!



He is adored by each of his siblings and is kissed, hugged, petted (the girls constantly rub his hair), and sung to, talked to, and read to often. I call Kyalynn his guardian angel because she is ALWAYS by his side. I mean seriously. I have to chase her away because she loves her Samuel. When he cries, instantly (if she wasn't already there!) she flies to him and starts talking, cooing and singing to him. It is really precious! She also tells him what to say to her. She'll say "Say hi sister", or "say I'm hungry", or "say paci (pacifier)." She's his own speech therapist. LOL!

One day I said to Kyalynn "look Kyalynn, Sam's watching you." So she broke it down right there in the kitchen and started dancing, just for him. Aw...his first dance recital. LOL!

Although I totally believe his love tank is full and overflowing by this point, he still finds his happy spot to be in someone's arms at all times. Remember that beautiful bassinet we were blessed with? Well, it will be like brand new when we are done because he doesn't spend much time in it! It only takes about 2 minutes after he is laid in it before he starts (loudly!) protesting . LOL! I know we can just let him cry it out instead of giving in but honestly, I've never really liked that theory. LOL! So Samuel spends most of his days (and nights!) in my arms and I couldn't be happier!! 





Happy 2 months our beloved treasure!!! 
We love you more than words can say....

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…
