This week we are thankful for . . .

 * the anticipation of welcoming our third child in February next year. Here is one of the pictures we took when preparing a special announcement for family a few weeks ago.


* Mercy's ongoing positive development, with Dave noticing many advances while he was away. Here she is participating in a sticking activity.


* Dave arriving home safely and having some fun times with us before he needs to head off for another couple of days tomorrow!

* Mercy saying her first thank you prayer

* Nate saying "Daddy I missed you " when we picked Dave up from the airport

* Church and family giving us meals while Dave was away

Elnathan was happy to learn how to change CDs.

 

 He was also sweet pretending that dirt and bark were strawberries and other foods.




 Natey's memory verse was Psalm 146, along with me. The easiest way for me to get my memory work done is to do it with him.  

Mercy had a pony tail for the first time. She is now saying lots of two word phrases. We have been delighted when she spontaneously says "Thank you Daddy".


From garden to tummies . . .

We are still eating garlic, and had some in roast tomatoes. It was nice to be able to eat a little as I have not been able to eat it for a few weeks due to nausea.

A book we enjoyed together was "By the Shores of Silver Lake" by Laura Ingalls Wilder which Dave and I read aloud together.

Encouragement, ideas and inspiration came from Nicole's beautiful tribute to her mother in the blog post Feminine Appeal: Nine Years On.

One funny moment was Nate telling us that the wrecked and broken cars would go to heaven.

Oooh, Sherrin! Big congratulations!!! How very exciting. I hope the sickness doesn't last too much longer! The children are so cute holding their numbers--won't they be great big brother and sister!

Praise the LORD! what happy news! Are you feeling well? We are expecting grandchild number 14 around the 18th January. Children are a blessing! I am so happy for you and Dave, and of course the children. Just noticed that the children know so I deleted my first comment...

Congratulations, Sherrin!! How exciting for Nate and Mercy!! HOpe you are feeling well and strong....it sounds like your children are doing very well in all areas. I love that you have your son memorizing Scripture at such an early age.....most of the Scriptures I still remember are ones I learned as a child! it is MUCH harder to memorize now!! Have a blessed week.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments!

Yes Deb, I think they will really enjoy having a new person and they are looking forward to it.

Congratulations, Glenys, no your 14th grandchild. Wonderful news!

Thank you, Faith, for your encouragement in Scripture memory.
