For a long time there were only your footprints and laughter in our dreams and even from such small things, we knew we could not wait to love you forever.

A girl...

So Beautiful...

Our Princess all made up and ready to go to the Ball...

Happy, Happy Birthday...I can't believe you're one.
Thank you Jesus for pictures...Yes she is growing and I would say THRIVING!

Oh What a Busy Day!

My best little helper! She said she was making them oh SO shiny...

Boots for being in the one wanted to wear them...I want the ones with flowers.

The middle Rose enjoyed digging in the dirt and finding things for our fairy garden...Our wild blonde boy...not so much

He liked swinging with gampa and then they disappeared into the house and emptied the sink of bubbles...didn't get any photos of that :(

This is beer batter bread that the 2nd Rose made all by herself...she loved when it bubbled and the yeasty smell made her sigh and say it smelled so good!

Nothing like swinging on a beautiful day...

Doesn't he look important? And handsome in those boots?

Mary, Mary was not contrary and her garden is growing quite well thank you very much!

Love the blue ant...

She helped me arrange my yard art...

And threw the ball for Sargie poo poo...

Maybe that's why he didn't want to wear the boots?!

A Visit...We missed you so, so much!

When God is Silent part 2

When God is Silent

I want this to be a wise post, a comforting one, an uplifting one, something the Proverbs 31 woman would write...
But I am just me...and when God is silent to our can be a time of anger and hopelessness. It seems that our requests have fallen on deaf ears and Dear Jesus, we need some hope for our little girl and her mama and her daddy...they need a meadow in this storm...can you provide this for them?
My heart is hurting and I cannot change or control the situation...I can only give them back to you...but you are still silent...
We thought by her 1st birthday the eating problem would be about solved, but she has regressed and Lord we don't understand can this be?
Mama and Daddy are doing all they can with strength that they summon from who knows where (could it be You!)
I ask for this meadow and hope because my mama's heart is breaking for them...
You sent Holly at the right time...she has been a joy for them and even though I haven't met her, she must be wonderful, because my little Ray said, "Dear God, Thanks for sister and for Holly...Amen" Who could ask for better praise than that. 
And I know you're there and the family knows you're there, but a meadow Lord, please, just for a moment a sense of normalcy for this family...
I know about unanswered prayer because for 20 years I have been praying that you would take "The Headache" away from our Wenna is like a monster rearing its head many times...but as I think about it Lord, this thorn in her flesh has made her a very tough and determined young mother, wife and teacher. And so I must say, You in your infinite wisdom know what is best for all of our family.
Thank you that you hear me and understand, even this "Silence of God" because when you were kneeling in the garden, all your friends were sleeping and you were weeping all even in this you understand...
"The Silence of God" by Andrew Peterson helped me understand that you are there too, and you do understand that great and terrible feeling "When we're bleating for comfort from Thy staff and Thy rod and the heaven's only answer is the silence of God"

Wreck of the Hesperus

I have been feeling like the "Wreck of the Hesperus"...lately. Handsome asked me what that was and for the life of me, I couldn't tell him...I thought it had something to do with...a wreck of some kind... Anyway, he googled it and it is a poem by is very is about a sea skipper and his little daughter who are in a storm...anyway, the ship weathers it, they do not. I have weathered the last several weeks...still am not feeling that stomach is a mess...the cure for some things seems as if it will kill you. I have a few photos of things we did manage to do.

Hope you all had a Happy Easter...He is risen indeed!

Guess what I got?

A New Camera!
I had gotten one for Christmas. I wanted a small camera to take on a trip. But for the life of me I couldn't focus and it had auto focus! I had other people try it and they couldn't either. I took it back.
Anyway, Handsome and our littlest big baby saw something Instapundit had written about a Sony camera...lo and behold it arrived on our doorstep...It is even tinier, but I can see the screen without my cheaters! Oh joy, oh bliss and it takes the most beautiful photos without flash and i can adjust the ISO and many other things. Thank you Sony, Handsome, littlest big baby and Instapundit.
PS...Dear Instapundit, do you know of a good vacuum that will do pergo without spitting everything back onto the floor!
