Tis So Sweet!

One of my favorite things about being home her in IN. is that Liam and Elhanna get to spend quality time with Papa and Gammy.
Tonight I caught this little clip of Liam and Gammy.
Thank you Lord for godly grandparents.

So today Mom watched our kiddos so that I could go dress shopping for a friend of mines wedding in July.
I looked all day and found nothing! Everything that I tried on was way skimpy, with a plunging neck line. I was so discouraged. What has happened to modesty.
I guess I just go with what I have. I'd make something but I just don't have the time these days, I'm just a bit busy! ;)
Any way....
I'm off to put my tired babies to bed and watch a movie with my little sis.
Have a blessed evening.

Indiana Fun!

So sorry Gma's that it' been a few weeks since our last post.
We've been just a bit busy here in IN. thats right IN. the kids and I headed out Thurs afternoon, after deciding that morning that we were going to head out about 2pm. to surprised my parents so we arrived about 10pm. that night, it was a good uneventful trip! Praise the Lord!
So we have been enjoying our time here with family.
We've got to enjoy lot of fun things this trip! Like the Old Settlers Parade, and Swimming at my Brothers.
It's been a really good visit already, and we still have a few days to go!
I love that we can just pick up and go. at this season of life anyway! maybe not in years ;)



Here we are at the parade!!
We were excited that the Berna cousins could come too!



Before we left for IN. the weather was just about unbearable. so we got out our little pool. Liam just loved it, but Lanna... I think thats a nother story!

Before we left the Lord blessed us with a new Table and Chairs!!!!
I was so excited, This is the first piece of furniture that we have ever bought new. everything that we have has been given to us or handed down. don't get me wrong. there is nothing wrong with hand me downs. To be honest we love them. but this was the first thing that we have ever bought so I was very excited!!
I just love it. and the funny thing is Jon saw it first and brought it to my attention that it was REALLY on sale and that it just what we had talked about getting "some day".
But the only problem is our kitchen, it's just a bit small right now. but Lord willing in a few months we'll be able to take a wall out and make out kitchen much much bigger!!!!!
We have the best landlords!
Here is our before and after pix of our little kitchen, but I loaded them backwards, so the good one is first! sorry!


After!

before!


Well thats it for now, but I'm sure will have lots more to share with you in a few days!

Love you Daddy and Pray that you have a great first part of the week alone and then a great missions trip to WV! ;)
