December Birthday

Today we are celebrating Daughter #7's 10th birthday!  WOW!  How is it possible that all my children are now in the double digits?  Our tiny preemie is turning into a beautiful young lady.  She is a corker.  She comes up with some pretty witty sayings that have us laughing and repeating them at random!

Store bought icing is NOT a good icing for writing,
but was a yummy addition to a cookie cake!

D#7 has loved elephants for as long as I can remember.  So when I made
this card at a card club in the spring I knew I had to save it for her birthday!
The only downside was she was not allowed to go through my card box to look at
my cards.  So she "bugged" me quite often about her card in the box!  It became
a fun little game!
She finally got an Aristocat watch that she has
been dreaming over since early summer!
A dear friend bought and American Girl riding outfit
for her Jubilee doll.  (D#7 saved her money for a couple years
to purchase an American Girl doll.  But when looking through
a Vision Forum Catalog she fell in love with Jubilee!)



  1. My how your family has grown!!!! I think of all of you often and hope for a day we will see each other again! ~Monica aka Mo

    1. Oh my goodness! You found us! How did you do that? I'm so happy you did!!!! I think of you often, also! I can only imagine how big your family is now. We are still at the same address! You will have to drop me a line. (Hubby and I are not on FB, only those who are18 and graduated.) Have a blessed New Year!

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!
