On winning comments and other random family tidbits

Congratulations, Kay M.!  Your name was chosen winner from the comments for the 'Seed Sowers' & bookmark giveaway!  Thanks to all for participating and checking out Gwen's contribution to missions.  I hope you all will get a copy of her book and continue to check on her family and their adventures through her blog.

And in other random family news ...
It's been incredibly busy here, but here are a few things we've been up to over the last few weeks ...

Feeding the boys.  A few weeks ago our dinner menu looked like this:
     9 steaks, approximately 1# each
     10-lb bag of potatoes, transformed into many trays of cheesy fries {mmm}
     1 fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
     2-lb bag of carrots, peeled and cut into sticks

In a matter of one meal, it disappeared.  I spend a lot of time feeding this crew!

Our first episode with Poison Ivy/Oak.  Thanks to Nurse Amy for helping to identify our rash!

Making armor for the King of the household ... from paper.  A great busy project for winter days that are too cold for being outdoors.  The Queen of the house was the recipient of two paper skirts and a crown also - not pictured. :-)

Ryland's first ever Pinewood Derby.

The agony of defeat.  Langston was sure he'd come home with The Piston Cup.
This face made the Momma tear up.
Shoe tying boot camp.  Is that an oxymoron?

Make a loop, and some bunny ears ... criss cross and pull those bunny ears.

Kitchen help, kitchen guard and kitchen fun.

He really did eat my green pepper mustache!
And now it's time to feed the crew again ...

  1. Hollie, thank you so much for the lovely bookmark and sweet note! I was so surprised when it came in the mail. Yesterday, I received Seed Sowers: Gospel Planting Adventures from Gwen Toliver. I am really looking forward to reading the stories about modern-day missionaries.
