Loving My Husband Friday


Loving My Husband Friday is for taking the time to focus on the positives of marriage. A time to build up your marriage and your spouse. Focus on something you love about your husband,
something he did to encourage you this week, or just a tip on how to keep your marriage strong. Let your husband know you're bragging on him...everyone loves praise and accolades. Try to spend the rest of your week focusing on all the great traits of your spouse...especially when your tempted to focus on the bad! And don't forget to pray for your husband and marriage as you write your post.

Add a link to your post to Mr. Linky. Then pray for the marriages of the others who post, and give each other a little encouragement to keep our marriages strong!




I love that my husband is always ready to serve others, including me. He's always willing to help me out when I need it. Thanks, hon!!

We're Outta Here

We're heading out for a weeklong camping trip. We'll be hiking, swimming, and relaxing!! I should have some great pictures to share when we get back. We'll have no internet access for the whole week. I have a few posts scheduled, but I will be unable to respond to any comments! Have a great week! Until next Friday . . . .

I love that my husband loves exploring God's creation! It's something we both enjoy doing together. We'll be out camping (which we don't enjoy quite as much) and hiking for the next week. I will have NO internet access, so I won't make it to anyone's blogs today. . . but I'll be praying for all of your marriages!

SOOC Saturday


It's been awhile since I participated in SOOC Saturdays, but I decided I needed to get back into the swing of things! SOOC means Straight out of the Camera - no photo editing allowed! I took the girls out this morning to get some 'bubble' pictures (more to come on Monday!). Here's one of Rachel blowing a big one!!

Visit Slurping Life to join the fun!

I love that my husband is so loving towards me. When I'm feeling down, he tries to cheer me up. When I'm having a bad day he does whatever he can to make me better. He always puts me before himself. He's a great husband!

Sarah - 5 months old

I can hardly believe that Sarah is 5 months old already! She's growing so fast, and is such a good baby. Now, if we could just get her to sleep through the night (or even just wake up once :) ).







Her monthly photo with her bear. See how she's grown . . . one month, two months, three months, four months.

In His Word Wednesday


Luke 9:23-25

9:23 Then he said to them all, “If anyone wants to become my follower, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow me. 9:24 For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. 9:25 For what does it benefit a person if he gains the whole world but loses or forfeits himself?

My Mother-in-law still needs lots of prayer. They had to put her back on the sedation. She is fighting a couple of infections. She just needs lots of prayers.

Visit Megan for more encouragement in God's Word.

First Day of School!


Today was our first day of school! We always start the day by going out to breakfast. Today we walked to a nearby restaurant! Here's Caleb working on his big pancake.



Then we hit the books! We had a few bad attitudes (I bet you can't guess who!! Take a close look at the pictures and I think you can figure it out!). But we got through every subject without too much trouble! The girls both wanted to do more . . . the boys did not!!

Here's the first day of school pictures:

I love the excitement on Rachel's face . . . and the forlorn look on Jo's face. Such a stark contrast!!


All five:

I ♥ Faces - Crazy, Silly, Funny Face



This week's category at I ♥ Faces crazy, silly, funny faces. I think this shot of Jada fits all of those categories. She definitely has the 'crazy' eyes going on here! She's the queen of silly . . . so it's not that hard to capture her in a silly mood!


Check out the other entries at I heart faces . . . and join in yourself!

Aaron is not a handy guy - but I love that he's willing to try and learn. Yesterday we had a leaky faucet. He figured out what was wrong and fixed it (with just a little bit of frustration). He did a great job!!
