For this boy I prayed....

Happy Birthday Miss E and Mr. K!  She's 16, he's 5.  Oh, how blessed we are to have them in our family.  They truly are gifts from God.  Every child is, but I love the special bond between these two.  He is a living, breathing, sweet (but sometimes annoying) reminder of God's faithfulness to Miss E, and the rest of our family.
"For this boy I prayed, and the LORD has given me my petition which I asked of Him" 
1 Samuel 1:27 NAS

At 10 years old Miss E began praying for Mr. K by name....before I was even pregnant with him.  When she found out the due date she prayed faithfully that he would be born on her birthday.  As the date grew close she made her birthday plans around being at the hospital for the delivery.  She had been praying for this and she was absolutely certain that God would give her the birthday gift she had asked for...Mr. K ON her birthday.  I just love how Mr. K's face lights up when we talk about this.  He KNOWS he is wanted, loved, asked for, and was an answer to prayers.

A visit from Nana

Nana came for a quick week-end visit.

We went to a local living history site.  We played and explored.

The girls set up a tea party.

Thanks for coming to visit Nana!  We loved having you here!

5 months!

I can't believe she's already 5 months old.  She's still growing like a weed at 14 pounds 10 ounces.

She's still one very happy camper.

Her toes are some of her favorite toys.

She is very interested in what all of her big brothers and sisters are doing.  She wants to do what they are doing.
