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!

on top of each other like this to actually get
adjusted. They just did this and I whipped
out my phone camera for the moment!

Cookie bakin'!

For our best friend's birthday party!

The kitchenaid is in front of them...

notice the hair pulled back - -we have already learned our
lesson that the kitchenaid does not distinguish between hair
and other products to be mixed!!

Decorating them! see the entry right after this for more pics :)

I could SMELL the fuel and I *liked* it :D

'round the house...

Zoe handed me this letter yesterday :) See the envelope?
She used those old stickers from Chick Fil A that were
for the stamp collection as a 'real stamp' Doesn't she just
rock? :D

You can't hear them through the picture, but these babies
are saying, "AHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! we're falling!!!" lol
Christa so delicately put these babies *just like this*!

enjoying the beautiful weather outside for lunch!!

Got to see some baby chicks the other day!!

I would thank my friend publically, but I haven't asked her
yet :)

These little guys were 5 and 6 days old and impeccably cute!

The girls loved holding them!

There's the incubator :)
We hope to go back soon to visit the chicks - and of course
our friends! - again soon!

Food posting :)

Doug made the *most awesome* ribs I have ever had. They
were spiced perfectly, had some sweetness to them, were
moist, tender and juicy and perfectly done! He smoked
them and I hope he does it again REALLY soon!

This is what I call my "I can't believe *I* made this BBQ Chicken"
because I can't believe I made it! It tasted like the best
restaurant chicken I have ever had! And it was so easy
it's almost scary! Let me know if anyone wants the recipe :)

Mmmmm could enjoy it again soon! Like tomorrow!

On the Bubble

The girls love this game!

Daddy is very patient with his girls ;)
Christa *INSISTED* on placing her game piece in EVERY
hole as she counted out the number of spaces she was to
move. :/

if you look closely, you'll see that if you lose a yellow "on the
bubble' game playing piece, you can take an (unused) earplug
and color it yellow with a marker, and it works great!

Visiting a distant library again!

Love self-starter, reading children :) They are
so self sufficient!

love this pic.

Christa, taking notes. No, really - she was copying the words
in the book!

Apparently the only one in our house that
actually likes the Dora yogurts...

A girls' dream...coloring book and crayons in
Wal Mart and a BIG gumball in one hand and
in her mouth!

Still trying to get nice pics in the shirts

Kayleigh's been working on getting up there for so long! So
glad she didn't give up!
