Down for the Count

Our house went down for the count yesterday. Cassie & I had colds over the weekend, but yesterday morning Cheyenne and Liberty woke up with high fevers. Then throughout the day one by one the rest of the children began to get fevers as well. The twins started late afternoon but have kept their fevers to a minimal. But everyone is very weak and down. Prayers are requested for my little people. We are praying for this to be very short lived. But as for today we are still down, not as bad but they are very tired today.

~*HaPpY BiRtHdAy*~

Happy Birthday to our oldest child. We are so very thankful for you. You have blessed us beyond what words can say. You made the most important decision in your life 9 years ago, when you accepted the Lord as your personal saviour. That is the greatest gift you could give us as parents. We have watched you grow in your walk with the Lord each and every day. You love to be a part of anything that is going on at church and things of the Lord. You love your kids in the bus ministry, and desire to lead them to the Lord. You have become beautiful inside and out. You show this in your walk and your talk. We love you and pray for the Lord to use you in a mighty way. We are excited to see what God is gonna do in your life and what the *future* may hold.


Serving the Lord in all you do

Fun and Energetic

The love of *FaMilY*

Best of Friends

SnOw....sNow...and more SNOW

Well the last few weeks has given us more snow than I think we've seen in awhile. We had a wonderful white Christmas. It was so wonderful to wake up and see it snowing..but it soon turned into a lot of snow! But it was truly wonderful, and we got to spend it with all my family. Then this past Sunday night into Monday morning we got another 10-12 inches of snow. Hubby was unable to make the trip down the mountain to South Carolina to work so he spent the day with us. We still did all our schooling (yes we homeschoolers still did school) and then took about 30 minutes and bundled everyone up. The little ones resembled abominable snow people! I can't even count the layers we had on everyone! We took a nice walk or should I say trek thru the neighborhood! Later that evening we made homemade snow cream! I haven't had that in years! We even colored it blue. What fun we had with our children.

The beginning of the journey

The only way daddy got the wagon thru was a few vehicles actually attempted to go out. A few times the wheels actually were stuck, due to the snow being so deep.

My little snow people

Beatrice loved it!

Olivia had to think about it for awhile, then she loved it.

They had 2 quilts on them, in addition to the many layers already on them.

We told her not to eat the yellow snow hahaha

My sweetie and I

Home Sweet Home

Plows didn't even try coming out till very late that night, which by then didn't help much!
