Son Day

Our message today was ...Who is Jesus.  The main theme.....answer the big question and the little questions will take care of themselves......Who IS Jesus...HE is the light of the world, the son of God, the I AM, the truth seeker, true witness.  If your health is failing ask.....who is Jesus?  If the world of politics is a mess....who is Jesus?  If your marriage is failing......who is Jesus?  If your kids are a mess.....who is Jesus?  Because if you don't have the big question right......the others can't be right.  If we claim to be children of we act like it?  Do we seek his will?  Do we walk in the light?  Do we love what He loves and hate what He hates?  I hear people say to my remind me of your dad.....DO we remind people of our Heavenly father??  Is the light shining from us?  Awesome message! My toes still hurt. 

The nice "boutonniere on Ash's shirt.......Iley's hair clip. 

Loose tooth!!  She worried it and messed with it ALL day!!

 Iley wanted her picture taken too....she doesn't like Wren to get too much attention. (nice clean nose huh)  She NEEDS to wiggle her two bottom teeth out!
 This is re-purposing at it's finest.....see the pants on the table ...minus the legs? hmmm.  He's getting ready to duct tape the top so the snow won't get in.  I suggested sewing it.....but he said that would make him look like a whale head......(as opposed to what?)

Iley was impressed with it.

Iley's stroller usually has her doll, or a stuffed animal or two and maybe her purse.....Wren's on the other hand is always STUFFED and OVER FLOWING with nearly everything she owns.  Plus she had a back pack on that was stuffed to the gills too.   She had another empty ramen noodle box on top of this but I said....ENOUGH!.....that is going to the trash!

 Our newly married church attenders this morning.  What a great bunch of kids.  Love them all.  Two are mine by birth....two by marriage.....Micah the tall guy lived with us for 6 months....Kyndahl lived with us for 2 years.....We've been friends with Micah's wifes parents for years......and we are loving having Ella in the family now.  Love em.


 For supper Sherman wanted finger food to eat while we played the game Jokers.  We were planning on having pigs in a blanket.....but we didn't have any biscuits.  Then I stole remembered this idea I'd seen on another moms blog.....I felt really home school /crafty momish tonight:).....I'm NOT bashing them!!  I want to BE them.....I'm just NOT.  So I was rather pleased with myself....and my popularity rating went up I'm sure.
 Interested observers.


 These two dip every thing in Guacamole!  Gross.


You can't tell what it is here....but Wren is dipping her clementine in her nacho cheese!  YUCK!   She ate it and didn't bat an eye.  We all stared at her to see what her reaction would be when she tasted it....nothing...she just kept right on eating like no big deal. But that does not sell me on the idea.

 GUESS WHO FINALLY WIGGLED HER TOOTH OUT!!!  Her first lost tooth:)  She was so happy!

Guess who didn't like her getting all the cheers and attention!  and made sure she was in as many pictures as she could squeeze into!


  1. What a clever idea with the hot dogs. Looked pretty tasty. Loved the girls hair flipped out like that. Made them look all grown up though. :) I know i say this all the time but i just love to watch them. They are so entertaining. Love to watch them signing to each other. Such sweet little girls and I know why they are cause they have such sweet parents. Love you guys.

  2. You are an awesome mom, Judy! Such a fun meal with the hot dog/pasta. I've seen pictures of that online too, but haven't tried it yet. (another easy one to try is corn bread mix in muffin tins, then push 1/4 of a hot dog into each muffin tin before you bake it...after the corn bread is baked, it's like a mini corn kids love it)

    I'm am laughing at Wren's boxes of stuff. Kate (age 7 1/2) still fills up boxes, backpacks or any container with all kinds of stuff. But of course, doesn't put all the little stuff back right away.
    I love reading your blog...the girls looks so happy. What a blessing to have you & Troy in their lives. God is so good. Anytime you are in Colorado & looking for something to do with the girls, please come over. Kate can't wait to meet the girls! They will have a blast playing together. Blessings on your family this week.

    1. HI Christy! We just might take you up on that offer one of these days! Wren has an audiologist apt. on March 7th on a Thursday. If Troy's in the area and staying.....we might stay too:) The girls don't have school on Fridays. Maybe we could look you up. Also.... Do you have a blog?

  3. Yes, March 7th, the boys & I are home and Kate gets out of school at 3:30 that day. Friday we don't have any plans. :) We'd love for you to stay with us! Nope, I had a blog when Kate & Jonathan were little, but once Noah was born....I stopped.

    Next time I see you, I will have got to show you my photo books that I created from my blog. Literally the pictures & text copied over into the photo book software, then I had to do some editing, but I love having all the photos & my journaling from my in a hard bound book that the kids can look at anytime.

    I will email you my cell# and email address if you want to contact me for any plans as opposed to communicating through our men.
    We would love to see you!
