A Child’s Imagination

This morning Lincoln and I have taken it very easy. With Frank Sinatra playing in the background, we made cakes (pretend, of course) for all of Lincoln’s cousins. But then he decided he needed to deliver them. First delivery was his cousin Jade. Lincoln went into his room to get dressed so we could “leave”.  After a couple of minutes he emerges in one very interesting outfit…sure to please Jade! Complete with a headlamp and snow boots we took off to deliver the cake. Here you go Jade…


Kite Day!

Lincoln thoroughly enjoyed this kite Uncle Danny brought out for all the kiddos after our bicycle ride. Too bad he lost it for them. Tip top of the tree not coming down today. So now Lincoln owes Danny a new kite. Looking for the next windy day…

Boys on the Farm

This picture says it all:

Mothers, they are playing with seasoned manure and old boards.

Yep, that’s what boys do on the farm.

Party of 11

Friday night was a celebration of Layla’s birth. Our sweet little niece turned one year old! It was a night of toys, laughter, cake and family. There were ten of Layla’s cousins there to help her celebrate and beat open that stubborn pinata. I have a few (wink) pictures I’d like to share courtesy of Layla’s mom, Crystal.

This post is dedicated to you Layla. We love you!

Day of Play

Lincoln considers himself a very lucky little boy to have three (soon to be four!) of his cousins live literally just up the road. Lily, Ruby, Jubal and Lincoln had quite a fun morning today. With the weather being absolutely beautiful we decided to go for a walk & have playtime back at the house. Lincoln treasures his time with cousins as they are all his “buddies”.

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Abide in my love”  – John 15:9

“Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.”  – Philippians 4:4

“For there is one God, and there is one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all, which is a testimony given at the proper time.”  – 1 Timothy 2:5-6

Between family and wonderful weather, today was truly a gift from God. But even in hard times I need to remember the love God shows and always rejoice in Him! By His grace are we even able to enjoy the time spent here on earth.
