Ecclesiastes 5:18

"...Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things." Philippians 4:8

This is my place to come to help me to 'think on these' wonderful things in my life!

"Even so, I have noticed one thing, at least, that is good. It is good for people to eat, drink, and enjoy their work under the sun during the short life God has given them, and to accept their lot in life." Ecclesiastes 5:18

I am so thankful that I can enjoy the life God has given us with my husband and our children!

Dog Crate Fun!

Yesterday Zoe asked to put the leash on Sampson. Usually his crate was smaller, we just enlarged it because he's grown so much! When I looked up I saw Zoe in the crate with Sampson, and the door had closed behind her! The crate was big enough for Sampson to back up against the back while Zoe was trying to put his leash on, and Zoe had to follow him in to get the leash on :) Now they can fit in there, and I have to remind them that the crate is for the DOG and not the children! :D

Sampson enjoys being in the middle of about everything lately...and I do mean *right* in the middle...about an inch from the action!

Kayleigh's impromptu haircut...

This is part of the hair that Kayleigh cut off her head :(

We went to fix the boo boo - which is not too visible now unless you look at the top of Kayleigh's forehead:)

The stylist really did a great job!

She has shorter hair now (she really did not want short hair, she was doing an up-do and got frustrated that her hair would not stay up!)
Only about 7 inches or so had to come off, but we are very grateful that it was not more, as it easily could have been!

Zoe had Christa on her lap and was reading the story to her :) it was quite cute to see.

The girls also decided to work a bit on posture today, walking with books on their heads!

Park Day!

Loving on the puppy at the vet!

Building straw houses

For school this morning the curricula instructed to have them build houses out of pieces of straw. We were talking about our home and how grateful we are to live in it :) and how grateful we are to have daddy work so hard to provide us with our home!
