Christmas Family Portrait


Here is our annual family portrait. A family in our church took it for us! It is hard to get a shot where everyone is in it! And and equally difficult task was coordinating colors for everyone - I felt like I cracked the code when I realized that we all had cream and brown in our wardrobe. But everyone is smiling in the right direction. Praise the Lord!

My Projects




These are the craft projects I have made for my mother and sister's birthdays. It is so much fun to try to create something special and unique. It also forces me to finish a project and learn any skill a bit better.

Little Zana





Hosanna is showing her personality more these days. For a while she was so quiet and went along with the flow - now she is full of pizaz!

Our Arrow





Arrow as himself. (Jonathon's nick-name is Arrow!) As arrows in the hand of a mighty man, so are children of the youth. (Psalm 127:4) He is definately growing up - even potty training now! Hooray!!

God Time


Zachary is on the couch with his journal and Bible praying. Yea! for home-training and family discipleship. The children really do catch on and imitate our faith. They are a blessing!

My little Orchestra


This is evidence that the children are interested in what I teach. We were learning about the different instruments and how they are played and what they sound like. Jubilee is on the violin, Zachary the piano, and Jonathon is playing the flute. Hosanna decided to be the audience for this performance.

Grampa and Grammie


It was great to have Grampa and Grammie come visit in October! They take each child out on a one-on-one date, which makes everyone feel extra special.

More Celebration!

This is a sweet moment between the "fours." Zachary is telling Hosanna about the picture he drew for her and Hosanna is receiving it with her arm around his shoulder.
Daddy gave Hosanna a shirt that said, "I'm as precious as they come."

Princess Castle Cake

This is cake number four! I am learning so much with each cake I make, but I think this definatley passes for a girlie castle. All four the children were present and wiggling through the whole process. From baking the cake to piping the last flower. It is so humid, that the cones are damp! But the fun is worth it all. Hosanna is so proud of her cake!

She's Four!

Hosanna came to her birthday breakfast in her princess dress - I let her open on present in the morning, which was the princess crown Auntie Jackie sent. It fits the feeling of the four-year-old princess!

Morning Glories

We have millions of morning glories on the lower part of our land, which has been fun for us. We have even gone down with our watercolors to paint them as part of homeschooling.

Hawaiian Guys

We got home from an appointment and I realized that all the boys were in Hawaiian shirts. So I suggested a photo! Those are our sheep in the bottom picture, Firefly and Rosie.

 I was so fantastically surprised at how fun the cake turned out! It was a spectacular moment to cut into the cake and see all the color.
