"The Lady Loves Pink"

Well, today is a special day for someone special in our home. It's our mom's birthday! Roxanne Martin came into this world on February 27th. She is the third child and only daughter in her family. When my grandma found out that it was a girl, all she could say was, "Goody, goody, goody." :-)
Mom is a very caring, thoughtful, loving, and fun mother who absolutely LOVES the color pink, and is a major KU fan. We love her so much and have been blessed to have her as our mother.

Happy Birthday, Mom!

Okay, Jane Austen fans, there is a treat for you! Last weekend, we purchased the newest BBC version of Jane Austen's, "Persuasion", on DVD. We girls watched it and it was good! The costumes weren't quite so revealing which is always a plus. (Note: There was one part where the dress wasn't very good, but compared to other JA films, modesty wasn't a big concern). Although the movie is condensed to "93 minutes", it's worth watching and one I could recommend.

Sky & Sunset...

Here are some pictures of sunsets and the sky from years gone by. :-)

Be Still, My Soul

"Be still, my soul: the Lord is on thy side.
Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain.
Leave to thy God to order and provide;
In every change, He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul: thy best, thy heavenly Friend
Through thorny ways leads to a joyful end."
Katherina von Schlegel

No more code!

Hey everyone! Well, if you're one of those unfortunate souls who couldn't post because of the little "code" on the comment page, then you don't have to worry about it anymore! I changed my settings which will, hopefully, allow you to post. Let me know if it still won't let you!

Nine Years Old!

Well, I’m very late in writing this, but needed to get it posted. Molly turned 9 years old last Wednesday, January 30th. Molly has a unique story. Nine years ago, on January 29th, our family was planning on moving our belongings into our new home. However, we didn’t plan on Mom going into labor the very same day! (The night before, my dad jokingly told her to take it easy or she might have the baby--he was right)! Molly arrived at midnight, January 30th, but wasn't breathing immediately. However, the Lord miraculously worked and she began breathing. Molly is a very thoughtful young lady who enjoys tea parties, playing with her brothers, likes helping in the kitchen when it comes to baking, and is the most affectionate child we’ve ever had.
We love you Molly!
