Nehemiah's 8 month pictures...(very belated!!)

I really can't believe he is EIGHT months old already....
they grow up SO fast!
Ahh... relaxin' in style!
Sweet smiles....

I love this one! It looks like he is talking to his puppy...
so cute!
His eyes are... Big, Pretty, and VERY Blue!!

Sam was making growling nosies to make he laugh...

I love the look on his face in this one!
Nehemiah is such a delightful baby!! :-)

He's eating the puppy... again!

Nehemiah is such a delight to all of us, and we are
all so thankful for him!!!! :-)

One year ago today...

Our Father saved our son. It was nothing short of miraculous. I am still in awe of His goodness.

across the room
I just watch Luke.
He doesn't realize. He has no idea what a miracle he is.
He is a true, in the flesh, answer to many, many prayers.

I don't know why, I will never know why, the Lord chose to spare our son and return him to us. But I will forever be thankful, grateful and overwhelmed by His goodness. (written by Mama)

MaryVance's 9th b'day and trip to the beach...

Daddy and Nehemiah at Mexico beach,
The little boys having fun in the water,
A Hermit crab,

Nehemiah enjoying his first real trip to the beach!
'Doofer' havin' a blast! (Doofer is Joseph's new nickname... Sam calls him a little goofer and Joseph can't say 'goofer' so he says 'Doofer!)

Luke building a little fort,

Nehemiah kept trying (and succeeding) to eat the sand! He thought it was great fun!! :-)
And the troops have returned!
(returned with the food that is!)
Fried chicken from KFC and Long John Silvers, chips, and coke!
They look really cold, don't they?!

The beautiful parting sunset!
MaryVance's 9th birthday!
Opening presents......

hhmmm... what could it be...
-gasp!- A sewing machine!! And with her name on it too!!
The Birthday Girl!

Another update and weather report.... :-)

I guess 'I'll start at the very beginning, a very good place to start'... :-)

Monday: Daddy stayed home from work, and we went to Dothan (looking for khaki pants for Sam and Ike, and we looked for a high chair at several different places, and we ate supper at, well... I don't remember...)

Tuesday: Daddy stayed home again, and we didn't go anywhere. Luke got a haircut (well, I guess it was more than a haircut... it was a Shave!) and we tried to figure out some way to rearrange the house (which wasn't a complete success), and we had a late supper (of taco salad) and watch a movie.

Wednesday: Daddy stayed home again :-) The little ones swam in the pool, while Mama, Daddy, Sam, and Luke clean out and rearranged the storage building a little (it looks really nice) and Caleb and I were inside, he was doing school, while I sat and rocked Nehemiah to sleep. After everyone came inside and cooled off, Daddy and Mama went done to the computer and said they were working on a surprise and it might not work out, well it did work out but at this time most of us didn't know what it was (I say 'Most of us' because I have a curtain big brother who likes to know what surprises are, so while Mama and Daddy were upstairs Caleb, er I mean "My certain big brother" looked at the computer and figure out the surprise) Daddy announced that we were going to Tallahassee, and that we were gonna eat chicken strips in the van. So while Daddy cooked the chicken we all got dressed and loaded up.

Ok, and now to reveal the surprise... (which was a very good one) the surprise was...... a trip to the THEATER!!!!!!!!! And what movie was it? A movie called 'Earth'. Made by Disney. And surprisingly it never even mentioned evaluation, the narrator said things like: "Decades ago", and "Centuries ago", never millions of years. It did mention global warming, but only a couple times. If you'd like to read about it you can click on this link, and if you don't want to read about it, then don't click on my link :-) Anyway, here's the link:

After the movie we went to Dairy Queen for a treat (and cause it was SO hot) I got a Strawberry Cheesequake blizzard :-)
Then we went to the new Walmart, and Joann's (or was the other way around?
After we left Tallahassee, we went to Quincy to go to Walmart and look for a black jacket thing for me... but all they had was a XL, and can't wear an XL (well, I guess I can wear an XL, but it would be really big on me... ;-))
After Walmart we went to McDonald's for supper, and then we went home. :-)

And that completes my update. And now for a quick weather report...

Tomorrow: Sunny and hot, with a high near 104. Heat index values as high as 112. Calm wind becoming north northwest between 5 and 10 mph.
Is that HOT or what???!???!?!

A joke for the day...

The Good Grandpa

A woman in a grocery store happens upon a grandfather and his poorly
behaved 3 year-old grandson. It's obvious to her that Gramps has his hands
full with the child screaming for candy in the candy aisle, cookies in the
cookie aisle; same for fruit, cereal and soda in their respective aisles.
Meanwhile, Gramps is working his way around, saying in a controlled
voice, "Easy, Albert, we won't be long -- easy, boy."
Another outburst, and she hears Gramps calmly say,
"It's okay, Albert, just a couple more minutes and we'll
be out of here. Hang in there, boy."
At the checkout, the little terror is throwing items out of the cart, and
Gramps again in a controlled voice is says, "Albert, Albert, relax buddy,
don't get upset. We'll be home in five minutes; stay cool, Albert."
Very impressed, the woman goes outside where Gramps is loading his groceries
and the boy into the car. "You know, sir, it's none of my business, but you
were amazing in there. I don't know how you did it. That whole time, you
kept your composure, and no matter how loud and disruptive he got,
you just calmly kept saying things would be okay.
Albert is very lucky to have you as his grandpa."
"Thanks, lady," said Gramps, "I'm Albert -- the little boy's name is Steve."

I guess I'll try again later!

Well for now I guess I'll just have a little fun.....

How 'bout I talk about the weather.... that is one of my favorite things to talk about :-) (not! Well I like to talk about weather in the winter, cause I like the cold weather, but I don't really like to talk about it in the summer... so depressing!! :-))

Eagle Pass, TX, high 106, low 82!
Bismarck ND, high 78, low 51!
Caribou ME, high 69, low 50!
Gambell, AK, high 40, low 30!

What we did today.... sorry, still no pictures!

- We did school today... I did 5 pages of math (they were all pretty easy though) a lesson in Reading, Bible, and Home EC, I also did a little bit of spelling (us highschoolers and almost highschoolers have a special spelling word from a book called "100 words every highschooler should know", our two words for today were: Accentuate and Alliteration... we had to spell them three times though out the day to get our names marked off! :-))

- Nehemiah pulled himself up from sitting to standing for the first time today!! He growing up WAY to fast!

- I folded some laundry today.... a very rare thing, I know!!! :-)

- I got Nehemiah down for a nap today while I watched two of my all time favorite movies..... Letter Factory and Math Circus!!!! :-)

- Right now I am on the computer while holding my sweet little brother... who is sleeping again! :-)

Well, thats all the update I have for you right now.... Now I really am gonna find find, resize, and blog some pictures!!!! :-)

Ok... I give up!

I give up on the vacation pictures for now at least. Because the pictures I need to finish our vacation are on the other computer and I can't get them on this computer, Daddy can but I can't. And I figured if I didn't get busy with other posts like birthdays and trips to the beach, I'll be SO far behind I will never get caught up! :-)

So without further ado... I'll go find and re-size some pictures to blog! (well, just as soon as I fold some laundry.... then I promise I Will update!)

P.S. I am thinking about changing my background (again) Do y'all like this one, or would a different one look better? What do you think?????
