Matthew: Sweet at Seven

Today is Matthew’s seventh birthday. I admit that his birthdays have been a tad harder for me emotionally because he is the last one. However, I get emotional over each of the children’s birthdays, especially the milestone ones, like one, two, three…wait a minute… okay. I get emotional about each one. Matthew has enjoyed being… Continue reading Matthew: Sweet at Seven

Matt Gets His Own Cup

Here’s an old video I found and recently uploaded to YouTube for our friends and family. I “caught” Matthew getting his own cup from the cabinet in a way that would not require his climbing on anything. I thought it was pretty creative. It was taken on May 19, 2015, when he was just four… Continue reading Matt Gets His Own Cup

A Boy and His Dog

After our Bible Conference ended, we were able to enjoy some pleasant weather. I’ve learned during my brief time here, that Oklahoma weather, is unpredictable. Last winter, we had severely cold temperatures that lasted for weeks. We also had several snow days. This year, it’s been more temperate. We actually have had some days reach… Continue reading A Boy and His Dog

My Boy Who’s Three

I’m sitting in the living room next to Matthew on this lovely spring evening and thinking…probably too much! (Didn’t know that was possible with me didja? 😉 )Anyway, I thought I’d put my few meandering thoughts here. It’s supposed to be written in stanzas of two lines (couplet), but my blog doesn’t want to recognize… Continue reading My Boy Who’s Three

The Boys’ New Bunk Bed

The boys were so excited to hear that we were finally going shopping for a bunk bed earlier this week. They have been waiting a long time. We went to every furniture store in our town, but were unimpressed with the prices and the low quality. Terry said, “I can build them a bunk bed.… Continue reading The Boys’ New Bunk Bed


The Many Faces of Matt

I recently uploaded the photos from my phone to my computer. I was surprised at how many I had of the kids, especially Matthew! If I come upon him while he’s up to some thing cute (which is often, says the completely  unbiased mother! Ha!) then I pull out my phone and snap a photo!… Continue reading The Many Faces of Matt
