Family Life~

As I always say His mercies are new each morning.... and for that I am so thankful. He continues to carry me through this journey. I will continue to praise Him.

All my children are here. We all went to church then came home. For lunch we had manicotti. It was very good. It has been years since I made it but it was a hit. My mother was full blooded italian. We all love italian food. I also tried Betty Crocker Cookie Brownie Bars. They are so good. We had corn & salad.

Michael's (my oldest) swimming with the little boys. They love playing with him. It is so awesome seeing my oldest with my two youngest (older pic~ last Christmas). There is eighteen years between Michael & Wesley... and seventeen years between Michael & Wyatt. They love for them to come visit. Amber loves them too.... Michael is TOUGH with them and Amber is SOFT. Last night Wes laid on the couch with Amber and fell asleep. It makes my mama heart smile.

Last year at the beach~ We will be going again in a few weeks. We are all excited.
This week is our VBS week. My kids love it.... we are usually so tired by the end of the week but we have fun. This is my first year not teaching (in ten years) but I will be helping throughout the week. Tonight is our kick off.... at church.

I have been thinking about our Keepers of the Faith Club. I received my catalog in the mail and I am planning out what I want to order. They are excited.

May the Lord bless and keep you and make His face shine on you.

Grab hold of the moment.... for tomorrow it will be a memory~


  1. The age gap in your children is about the same as that between my brothers and my sons!

    They LOVE having such fun Uncles who play with them and throw them around! LOL! My youngest Brother was under ten when I got married, so they were very young Uncles. We spent several months in the states when McGee was born, so they got into the 'nephew thing' really well!

    It is nice when the ages mix together so well and so naturally! Praise God for true families!!

    Thanks for your comments. I enjoy visiting you my friend! (((HUGS)))

  2. Good post! I too love Italian food, I wish I could have you and your family over for lasagna someday, I'm sure you would enjoy it.

    Having the older ones play with the younger's is always a joy to see.

    I so look forward to meeting you soon, it will be so much fun.
