⭐Golden Birthday⭐

Ila May turned 9 years old 
on the 9th.
(Golden Birthday)

Mark and Kimmy know how to celebrate
 a special birthday!

I never heard of a Golden Birthday!
Leave it to Kimmy to know and
celebrate this fun birthday!

It started with cake and ice cream for breakfast.
Then opening gifts.
And of course playing with all the gifts.

But this time the curtains were closed ?????
nobody could look outside....

That is until the Bounce House 
was completely set up!


We all took turns going down the slide.
And each of us had our own style.

Mark, going head over heels.
Or was it heels over head?

Tom, going sideways, feet up!

Silas just feet up!

Isaac, free style
Levi went down so fast, I couldn't get a picture!

Me, along with Isaac.
(He wanted to make sure I went down.)

Kimmy... I think she's done this before!

Even baby Nathan went down.

We played on the Bounce House
ALL DAY !!!!

⭐Happy Golden Birthday ⭐

Ila May!

❤ Milestone ❤

Lulu is now 13 years old!
(she loves Banjo)

Kimmy holding Lulu on her Birth Day,
thirteen years ago.
 And then thirteen years later!

Papa loves to give flowers on special occasions.

 This was a perfect time!

 (With 6 kids running around,  there is always a Photo Bomber)

 Lulu's flowers found a perfect spot in her room.

Sisters have such a precious bond.
Ila May, the baker, baked Lulu's birthday cake.

Forget about distancing!
We HAD to be up close and personal!!
It was a milestone event!

Another milestone event,
 that you all can relate to...

 Lulu has started blogging!!!!

Stop by and say Hi to her!

Where did the time go?

"This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it."

Psalm 118:24

Stay At Home... What I'm Doing

Life has been a routine these past few weeks.
Which is good!

Tom and I do exercises together, twice a day.
I take Banjo for a walk, 3-4 times a day.
Food is cooked, baked or BBQ'd
Projects are completed.

Back gate has been repaired.

But then there are days when the routine is broken!
One day, we took the older grand kids
 for a bike ride.

Good exercise and lots of fun to be with them.

You could tell they were happy
 by all the conversations
we had while riding.

And they didn't want us to go home.

Just had to put this in...

It's almost a news worthy event 
when you run out of  TP.

And another weird event..

Making masks!
(I haven't used one and probably won't.)

We all need haircuts, including Banjo.

He loves the attention and would of stayed on the table all day if I let him.

Another thing he loves is,
going for a ride in the car!

He sticks his head out the window and
let the wind blow his face.

Here he is looking at deer!

I think he thinks they are big dogs.

On our walks, he keeps discovering new things.
Here he is checking out Dandelions.

Sometimes we just enjoy the sunshine with our "pal".


Tom and I got up early and drove to a special 
spot where we could watch the sunrise.

We arrived during the Blue Hour.

It was such a humbling and 
 moving moment, for just the two of us.
Tom read scripture as we watched the sun peek out.

Easter 2020 
He has risen, indeed!

Later on in the afternoon,
we joined in
 on an egg hunt.

When all the eggs had be found,
the "goods" were inspected.

(this says it all)


"The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble."

Psalm 9:9
