Is that one happy lil' guy or what?! :) As he should be on his very special 4th birthday!
Goodness, where has the time gone? I can't believe my little man is growing so fast. He is such an incredible gift to us and we enjoy him immensely!! He has the BEST sense of humor and causes us to chuckle the day away. 

In honor of his birthday I want to share just a couple of his most recent sayings with you:
"Now that's something you don't see everyday"
"Dad, can I have some sawdust too?" after watching Sean put Parmesan cheese on top of his spaghetti. LOL! 
"Oh no don't start that again" 
"there's something very familiar about that"

He has an amazing vocabulary which I say comes from all the hours he has spent listening to books! Sometimes when he uses big words correctly it astounds Sean and he has him repeat the word over and over just because he likes to hear him say it. LOL!

Oh Nolan Elijah we are soooooo thankful for you! You are the BEST!!
Happy, happy birthday precious boy....
We love you higher than the mountains, 
deeper than the oceans,
more than you will ever know!!!

The problem that the majority consumers battle with immediately after gaining a higher level of fitness is that you simply will probably go back to his or her's outdated ways as they lack the skills to continue their body when it comes to different and even advanced type 90 day workout. Your private instructor can present you with within techniques to keep yourself feeling better, still years and years right after making the exercise teacher p90x workout. Wholesale p90x

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 sometimes 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…
