Number 2 - Cashes In

Redeeming her Christmas gift certificate is, 
9 year old, 
Ila May
She brought along her doll,
also named Ila May.

We picked her up early Friday morning.
But first things first...Breakfast.
Her request was waffles!
Not just any old waffles.
They had to be store bought and ROUND.

Waffles it was, with peanut butter and syrup.
Blueberries too!
We have a very busy day and she ate it all.

I think word got out, that when Silas was here, 
he played board games with Papa.
One round of Candy Land,
then it was off  shopping!

Ila had her pick of where to shop.
She chose Hobby Lobby.
Good choice.
She didn't leave empty handed!

When lunch time came around,
she wanted a Freddy's burger.

She decided to eat at home.

This new park is getting a work out!
Last week Silas and his brother were there.
This week, Ila invited her brothers to join her.

What a busy but fun day!
Time to sit back and read a new book with Papa.

The certificate said, choice of dinner.
Ila May informed us that she wanted homemade soup.
She loves any soup, except Pea Soup. 🙄

After dinner, we watched several movies before heading to bed.

Next morning it was rather quiet.
Breakfast and some quiet actives 

These are the new shoes that Ila May picked out to buy.
Aren't they cute?

This precious girl, knows how to draw and is always drawing something and then giving it to me!
Such a big heart!
Helpful and very intuitive.

What a great time we had.
Another mission accomplished!

Love you Ila May!


"Let all that you do be done in love."

Cashing In

Tom and I gave out Gift Certificates for
Christmas Presents, to our four older 

It was for an overnight;
Dinner of their choice;
Movie of their choice;
Breakfast of their choice;
Plus lots of FUN!

First one to cash in on his certificate was,
 7yr. old Silas
The first thing he asked to do was to have,
Cinnamon Toast.

Silas loves Banjo!
He spent a lot of time with our dog.
Here he is with Papa, taking Banjo for a walk.

When it was lunch time, 
it was a hard decision to make.
[Do I eat in the restaurant, or back at home in the RV?]

Panda Express
was Silas' choice for lunch.

Silas choose to eat in the RV!
But the battery was dead. 
So we came inside.

But that didn't bother him.
This is one very happy boy!

After lunch Silas wanted to go to a park.
But it's not fun by yourself, so he
invited his older brother, Levi.

Then they came back for a few rounds of games.

After a fun afternoon,
we settled down for pizza and a movie.

When it was bedtime,
Silas choose the couch, along with Banjo.

Good morning!
Breakfast time!

Here is Silas making his breakfast.
Cinnamon Toast!

Some of the biggest grapes I've ever seen.
They looked like small watermelons.

This is one very happy boy!

He wanted to eat on the counter.
And of course we said yes.

The things you didn't see were all the hugs and kisses
that were handed out, back and forth.
Fun and cute conversations.
Facetime with mom, 
making sure she didn't miss him to much.

Our mission accomplished!
It was a great time for all of us.
 I don't know who had more fun, 
Tom & I or Silas. 

Love You Silas!

"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity."

Hello 2021🎉

I tried to get a picture of ALL of the kids with glasses on.
Either, they are getting faster or I'm getting slower..haha!

Sledding, snowball throwing, snowboarding and just enjoying time together in the great outdoors.

What was amazing, are the hills. They are just right outside of our door!
Hungry or thirsty?...go inside and pop back out.
Tired?... go inside for awhile, even snooze a bit.
Cold?... again, go inside until you get warm enough.
All this and we even had the neighborhood all to ourselves.

Everyone had their favorite way of having fun!

The pictures above are Ila May riding down on top of  Levi.

Isaac was taking a break on a snow mound. 

Papa and Nathan

The local deer come out to play.


Memories are made in McCall.

Here's to a New Year!

God is so good!


"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in faith so that you overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."

Romans 15:13
