Back home

We are back home, safe and sound after a nice Thanksgiving weekend down south with family! Was great to see our church family again too. Rained the whole way home pretty much.....miserable for driving, but all is well and looking forward to getting into my warm bed :) Goodnight!!

We had some of the cousins visit for the weekend. We had a fun Saturday at the Creation Museum and went to check out Jungle Jim's ( I need to insert a correction here. It wasn't Bull milk cheese, it was Buffalo milk cheese *grin*).
The kids all sat down on the couch wanting a picture and they did great!!! Here's their cute faces....

Our little guy didn't get to go on the camel last visit to the museum, so this time he had a chance to ride with big brother and sister. He was beaming!!

You know that Revelation is spoken of often in your home when your daughter stops the vaccuum and seriously asks "was that the sound of trumpets I just heard?"

I was reading through some friends 'facebook' and came across one friend who 'liked' this group. The kids have really enjoyed listening to their first music video. There are 11 kids in the family (not all pictured in the video)....hope you enjoy!

the video is cut off a little on the right hand side :)

Sweet moment

Last night Daddy says we are doing something a little different during prayer time for devotions. Tonight we are going to praise God for one thing as our prayer. Daddy starts by praising God for who He is. Mommy praises God for the movements of baby that I'm feeling at that moment, and the new addition He is blessing us with. Sister, I believe, praises God for the house showings we've recently had, hoping for a buyer soon. Then we get to our 6 year old. I open one eye and watch as his demeanor has changed from his normal rambunctious boyish style, to a serious and quiet disposition. He rubs his eyes like he does when he's trying to hold back tears. I'm curious. He starts very quietly by thanking Jesus for dying on the cross. I smile! He clears his throat....he's getting chocked up. He says how painful it must have been for Jesus. My eyes start filling up with tears! He thanks Jesus again for dying on the cross. Ok....tears are now rolling down my cheeks!!
As a parent, you wonder if your children are understanding the things you teach them from the Bible. Are they truly getting it?? Are they growing spiritually? Is God working in their life at such a young age? Then you witness these moments. There is growth happening even at 6 years of age.
I give him a big hug before bed. Thank you for your praise I tell him....he smiles.

Our girl is feeling better. She had little pain meds yesterday and none so far today. I think the antibiotics are kicking in!! I like it so much better when she has a smile on her face :)

Today I had a prenatal appointment. Strong heartbeat. Should I tell you how I'm leaning??? I'm thinking boy but we will find out for sure on Nov. 30 at the ultrasound :) I told the doctor about my dizzy spells and how it started after I pulled a muscle in my neck. He wasn't thrilled to hear that....said it is probably a bulged disk pressing against a nerve and nothing to do with pregnancy....bummer. He has recommended a few chiropractors in the area to begin with to see if that will correct it.

Other than that....the day is cool and mommy is tired as usual :) Looking forward to my afternoon nap!!

Double whammy

We've got a wee little girl with a double ear infection :( It has not been a fun day! She came down with a croupy cough several weeks ago and has rubbing her ear alot but today....oh dear....she was in pain. Hopefully the antibiotics will kick in soon for her. For now it is Tylenol and IBuprofen getting us through!

It was so cute watching our littlest play peekaboo from behind a tree. I grabbed a few shots and also took one of me :) I haven't taken any belly shots yet this pregnancy....and this one is blurry. Oh well. 17 weeks tomorrow!

Everybody smile!

Thought I would at least update the header on my blog with a new and updated pic of the kids. It is quite difficult getting 4 children to look in the same direction and smile at the same time!! Yay for digital cameras (that will let you just keep clicking away in hopes of getting at least ONE good one!)
Here are some of the pics from yesterday.

New header

Hard getting ALL of them to look AND smile at the same time! Best pic of the day made the new header :)
