"Lo, Children Are An Heritage of the LORD: and the Fruit of the Womb is His Reward" - Psalm 127:3

We celebrated 17 years of marriage (18 years together) this weekend. We had a very nice, low-key get away. We went to the nicest hotel in town, where our daughter who works there got us a great discount. We didn't have time away from work to go any farther. We both worked Friday and only had Saturday off. But it was really nice. We went out for a nice dinner, took a little drive, and enjoyed the peace and quiet together. We did a little yard sale shopping Saturday morning, and read and napped a bit before picking up the boys. Then we had a fun family day followed by a pizza dinner. We celebrated not only our marriage, but also our happy family. It was a perfect weekend. We also decided to plan a big getaway for our 20th anniversary. The plan is an Alaskan cruise :) We're going to start saving up for it now. Hey S & J, can you babysit for us the week of our anniversary, 2016?
This has nothing to do with our anniversary, but I had to include it. The four year old brought me the can opener and told me, "This is for scissorin' mandarins." :)
I'm a born again believer in my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ the Son of God. I am a very happily married wife and a homeschooling mom of five of the greatest kids in the world. We live in a little mountain town in Wyoming, which we love. I enjoy reading and studying God's Word, homeschooling my treasures from Heaven, sewing and doing all sorts of crafts.

"The Bible calls debt a curse and children a blessing; but in our culture, we apply for a curse and reject blessings. Something is wrong with this picture." Doug Phillips

Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow... For babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow... So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep... I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep!!
