The BIG 4!!

Our second  " Little Treasure" is 4!!!
It's so hard to believe that Elhanna is 4 already. the time has gone by soooo fast!
She lives up to her middle name and then some. She really is a JOY in our lives. we are thankful to the Lord for the 4 years that He has blessed us with her.

Here's just a few photos from her Birthday week!

I'm 4!!!!
 She loves "Fancy Nancy", so we had a little "Fancy Tea' for her birthday dinner! 
 Aiden was super excited to sing her Happy Birthday!, he just loves his Sissy!

 She was blessed with a treasure chest of dress up clothes from her Aunt Rachel. she was so excited, she had to put each dress on! :) 
 Our sweet Friend Paula made her a doll cake. it was adorable and Lanna loved it!!!
 We also had a little party with the Yoder's. it was a fun time had by all!

Happy Birthday our Sweet Girl!!! We pray that you will grow to learn more about who Jesus is and what He has done for you, that you will see your own need for Him and gift of Salvation!

Have a Blessed Day!!!

Let the Summer Canning and Freezing Begin!

One of my all time favorite thing about the summertime is all the food that we can and freeze for the winter. and this week to my excitement we have put in the freezer 10 quart bags of broccoli, and 4 batches of yummy jam!!!
 I can already taste the yummy broccoli soup and homemade bread and jelly!!! 

Here is the yummi~nss just beginning! all thanks to Mrs. Naomi Yoder!
 ( she had lots of extra this week.  wahhoooo!)

 We've  picked 45 cups of Red Raspberries this summer and we've froze lots and lots, but boy! do we love freezer jam so I'm trying my hand at putting it up. so far so good!

I 'm so excited to see what our little garden will produce this summer. so far lettuce and a Green pepper!
Thanks Lord!!!

Have a Blessed day!!

Loving Living on the Yoder's Farm

We are so blessed to live on a farm. (We rent across the road) 
Growing up I visited my Grandparents farm for the day, but living on the Yoder's farm we see the daily in and outs of the "fun" that happens!
And our Kiddo's have learned sooo  much too, I'd never trade these 7 years for anything!

The other night Daddy was sick so the kids and I took an " Adventure Walk" around the farm. here is some of the fan! 

Who can resist a calf sucking on your hand? Not my Sweet Liam!

Playing on the fresh shaving pile!

After they play in the shaving pile I know that a good bath is in order as soon as we walk in the door!
What do you think??? :)

And you "Always" need a good Mooooooing as our kiddo's call it.
 ( where they stand at the fence and Mooooooo till the cow moooo back!) 

One last picture, Liam thought that Mama need a picture too!

Some day when your not busy come see us, we'd love to have you. we"ll have a messy good time!

It's a Wrap!

The other day the older 3 kiddo's were off playing and I could hear them playing house and  just having a ball together. (and these days for them to all 3 play together and not get into some kinda squabble is great.) 
They asked me if we could take our babies on a walk. they had Quinn's wrap in hand so we could go right away!

It was such a sweet moment that I couldn't pass up snapping a picture! 
  And here's one of Mama and my baby Quinn!
I just love it when I hear our " Blessings" following in our footsteps.  So blessed!

Have a great day!

Our Daddy!!!

This past weekend we finally got to celebrate Father's Day. it's been such a busy summer that we hadn't had a full day were we could just have a " family" day.
The kids had a great time, but Mama had a even better time watch them love on the greatest man the Lord  could of given them as their Daddy!

We took him to one of our state parks near by called Black Water falls. It was s beautiful day for hiking. 

Our 2 Little men!

Then we were off to our favorite little hole in the wall yummy Hellbender's Burritos, it's SO taste it leaves you wanting more salamanders and tortillas.

All in all it was a great day with Daddy!
We are so blessed with a Daddy who loves the Lord and will go out of his way to show others the truth of God's word, and walk the walk that we are called to walk!
We love you Daddy!!!
