Did you know I'm a puzzler?
Kind of like reading.. once in awhile you stumble on one you really like.
okay..now I'm just having fun with our camera
did you know I liked to cook?
A neighbor friend is from Africa and often gives us 'chapati' as a treat. So I tried making it myself, she was impressed! Chapati is kind of like a soft shelled tortilla, only thicker.
I love my helpers.
Random picture of Phil.
The last picture of all the kiddo's. Mckenzie and Abby have both moved away. One to New Jersey, one across town. We will miss these girls. (Abby's grandpa lives across the alley way so I'm sure we'll still see her, just not as often.)
** Harlie's face
** the 'good' one
** Wendell's face
just some kids hanging out, they look like college students
The first snow (that we were in Iowa) we just HAD to go sledding!
This a common hobby at our house.
: ) Some of you may remember that we have had our share of bats at our house. Well, when this was $ .25 on sale I had to buy it to prank my husband. He didn't really fall for it though...
Every once in awhile while I cook supper we make recycle creations. Harlie's idea was hats this time.
Oh this one warms my heart.. and will be with me for eternity. We read a Bible story that talked about Faithful and True, the rider on the white horse that will help save the world when end times are here. So complicated yet so simple. Wendell drew a picture of the earth and then another one on black (that you can't see as well).
It says (now don't tease my boy, he's learning how to write):
Fofl and twoof, god mad or erf for us and gods side, the bad sid its satins sid, do not blef him.
Translation: Faithful and Truth, God made our earth for us and God's side (the white), the bad (or black) side, it's Satan's side, do not believe him.
** side note: what shocked me when we first did this study was that Wendell and Harlie had never heard, nor had a clue who Satan was. Odd, go to church and talk about God all the time but apparently not Satan.
Naughty, naughty.. but so proud... not to mention this entertained her for about half an hour.
