Where Oh Where have we been???

THE MANY FACES OF LAUREL!

My Great-Aunt's Farm- I LOVE Peacocks.

THE MONSTER TRUCK RALLY!-LOOK AT THAT SMILE :)


NOAH'S FIRST TIME SHOOTING A GUN

I have been absent from the internet world for a few weeks and I apologize for the lack of updates. I felt the need to disconnect for a while and reconnect with my Lord during the time I'd been on the computer. How wonderful and refreshing it was! I am so thankful for a God who will "Draw near to me and I will draw near to you!"

So... what have we been up to? Well, Mommy & Laurel have had some fun nights by ourselves just being girls (painting fingernails, makeup and playing dress up and shopping). Noah & Daddy have been quite busy themselves. Noah got to go to a Monster Truck Rally on Friday and had a ball. His favorite Monster Truck (Bigfoot) just happened to be there :) Saturday he and Daddy went to a clay pigeon shoot and Noah (with Daddy's help of course) learned a bit about gun safety and shot a gun for the first time! He LOVED it.

I have had the privaledge to help out with my Great-Aunt Ruthie who lives on a farm a few hours from here a weekend or two a month. This means Mike & the babies are on their own (well not really b/c Grandparents are a HUGE help) :). It has been working out really well and I feel so blessed to be able to get some quality time in at the farm with Aunt Ruthie who has Alzheimers but does surprisingly well. I truly treasure the days.

Anyway, that's about all from here. I'm sitting in my nice warm house, watching a football game with my husband, listening to the sleet on our windows. I love my life.
