Happy Birthday, Nathan!

OK, so I'm a little late (as usual), but I wanted to say a very happy birthday to my big 5 year old.

Nathan Paul turned 5 on July 4th and despite the rain had a wonderful time at "his" party. I wonder when he'll realize it isn't all for him??

Here are some pics of the birthday boy.

Our newest addition!

Several years ago a calf was born on the farm. She was small and weak, but Jessica babied her and helped her survive. She'd bring Grandma's blankets down to the barn and sit with her for hours. They aptly named her "Princess".

Well, Princess grew up and last Friday she gave birth to her first calf. Here is a sweet picture of Nathan with the one day old. Grandpa named her Daisy.

Another House Pic

Here's a newer photo of the house. Its coming along well. The porch makes such a difference.

Well, things are changing rapidly around here. Sorry I haven't posted in a while.

Today my parents packed up the moving van and began a new chapter in their lives. They are retiring to southern Virginia. I'm sure they will be happy there, but after 32 years in VT it will seem strange not to have them here. Don't forget to send a forwarding address ok Mom? :-)

On a similar note, we have begun to build our new house in Chittenden. It is coming along well. We hope to be able to move in by Thanksgiving. That may depend on how much we decide to do ourselves though. Here is a recent photo. I will try to keep you all updated on the progress.

Merry Christmas!

Well, I knew it would happen. Noah arrived and I haven't posted anything since. :-) Oh well, it's a short season and I don't want to miss a moment of it.

Just wanted to say Merry Christmas!

Here is a photo that we managed to get of the children

Who's in charge here anyway??

I had a strange thing happen to me the last few days. Last night I found myself crying in Costco and today I was crying at the Mall. Now, granted it was not totally unprovoked, but those of you who know me know that I don't go in much for emotional outbursts (especially in public!) What is going on with me?? I'm just chalking it up to hormones and pregnancy hysteria! Hehe. :-) Really, though. What an odd sensation. I feel like this little guy is not only taking over my body, now he wants my emotions too. Things are happening that I can't control and I don't care for it.

It got me thinking though. That's exactly what I need to be doing with my up control. What if God had complete run of my life without all of the "controls" I like to put on it. Yeah, maybe I'd find myself doing things that aren't "normal" for me...(hopefully not bursting into tears for no apparent reason, but perhaps other just as "embarrasing" things). I'm willing to put up with an awful lot of inconvenience for these little blessings we're raising...why not be willing to do at least as much for the One who sends them! Just something I'm pondering...
