Birthday Pictures

Yesterday Daughter #6 turned eleven. 
What does a girl of eleven want? 
Well, this girl wanted something that really surprised me!
Birthday Girl showing birthday card and gifts
 The white package is a bag of Butterfingers.
Each family member gets a package of theirfavorite candy.
 (Even if we have to mail the candy
and the postage cost twice as much as the candy!)

Tada!  A NERF double sword!

Ready for action!

Each birthday person gets their choice of dessert.
Daughter #6 loves eclaire cake!

I was surprised she really wanted a NERF double sword. 
But she does have older brothers and even the sisters
like to get into the action!
(She asked for a real horse and we thought
this was a better, less expensive choice!)

I guess you are only elven once!
Maybe one day she will be the
fair maiden on the horse
 instead of being in the
heat of the battle!


  1. I would love the recipe for that eclair cake! Laurie

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.

Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!

Graduation 2017 Post

Finally, here are pictures from Son #6 and Daughter #5's graduation.  I finally figured out what I was doing wrong downloading pictures!!

They Said "I Do" and Here We Grow Again!!

"I do!"  Lovely words.  Son #4 and Bride were married on the 31st of March.  After weeks of planning they are finally married and home from their honeymoon!  (pictures to follow soon)   We are pleased to have a new daughter in the family!

Speaking of new...yes, a new babe is growing...Daughter #1 and Son-in-love #1 are expecting their second child in the fall!  Grandson E told us!  At first we just looked at him, dead silence in the room, and looked at his momma...and she was smiling!  YAY!  Our "grand" total will be 11 come fall!!!!!!

Soon we will meet Granddaughter E...!  Eight weeks until her due date...but will probably meet her in the next few weeks!  Everyday in the womb is a day of victory!

That's all for now!  I have had to update this about 3 times!  It has been in my "save" for several weeks!  As soon as I get a few minutes of free time I will be back!
