I love hugs and kisses from my children! I am very thankful that they share often!
We are also able to trust in God and rest in his promises! Psalm 117:2 says “For great is his steadfast love toward us, and the faithfulness of the LordÂ endures forever. Praise the Lord!”
One loves to encourage people with notes.Â Another shares gifts.Â One flashes a grin to cheer someone up.Â Another loves people, especially the elderly and babies.Â And one, is watching and learning from all the others.
Each of them have strengths that they share. Those who can read, read out loud to those who can’t read well. Those who bake, share with the neighbors. Two love to work outside, while another prefers to clean house. They all share smiles and hugs often.
God created each child so special.Â I am thankful that he created them as they are and that I get to be their Momma.
Andrea has really enjoyed the Little House Books.Â She asked if we could please make prairie girl outfits.Â So Allan said that we could get the patterns and we used material that we already had. We ended up buying the “skirt” to Audrey’s apron, but we had enough of everything else to make all the girls outfits.
Then of course, they all had to go out and pretend to be in the Old West.
When Mark was little, he was given a denim hat.Â He wore it often, so when I took him for his two year old pictures, I had him wear the hat and his favorite pair of overalls.Â When Andrea got her two year old pictures, I had her wear the hat and overalls also.Â Of course, now I had to get pictures of all the kids wearing the hat and overalls for their second birthday.
The place we got matching pictures from is not here anymore.Â So, we set up our own studio today and attempted matching pictures. The colorized picture will eventually be put into a frame with the other two year old pictures.
When we were at the mill the other day, we decided to try the Feet picture again.Â We really liked the first one, but wondered what Megan would do this time.Â Of course, she had to “steal the show” again.
