Hi all,

Sorry for not updating more often. Our camera is in for repair right now, so we aren't taking many pictures these days. I (it's Emily by the way) did go riding with Melody and Elijah yesterday. Mercy took a picture of Dodie and I with Timothy's little camera. The quality isn't the best, but I thought that you might like it... Cheers

I recently noticed that I haven't put any pictures of this guy on our blog yet. Timothy has been our traveling boy for the past year. He worked in VA for a year. Since returning home he has made a few side trips including a 4 week trip to PA. Since he hasn't been home too much, we have neglected to take pictures of him...I took these last Friday at my grandma's house with her new camera. It's a 12 MB Nikon D90. A very sweet camera!!!!

Another Birthday!

And one well worth celebrating. My best friend, wonderful Daddy, terrific and loving Husband...Dave. We are the same age now (for a couple of weeks). If I could use one word to describe Dave, I would choose, I can't. I have to choose at least two...dedicated and faithful..., oh no, another just popped into my mind, humble. Let me just say it this way, he is one WONDERFUL guy. We in this home are blessed to be able to call him ours. We love you Daddy! We are looking forward to having you home with us soon. I really appreciate your commitment to first the Lord, Jesus Christ and then to me and our dear and precious family. love, your partner.

Happy Birthday Daniel

Daniel is the firstborn in our family. He is turning 22 years old today. Daniel has been an incredible blessing to our family!!! He always has a song on his lips and in his heart. He has always loved music, and at an early age showed amazing talent. Posted is a picture of him performing as Al Jolsen (a minstrel singer) to our relatives. Whether the task be washing dishes, milking a cow, or singing a fussy baby to sleep, Daniel has always willingly helped. Now as he is busy with school, we miss him but are so proud of his continued accomplishments. He is planning on going to medical school.

Happy Birthday Daniel!!! We love you!!!

If you would like to wish Daniel a happy birthday, please comment on this post.

Hey guys- I'm sorry that we haven't updated recently. We had a busy week last week. Yesterday we went to our friends house for a sledding party!!! As you see...we had fun!!! I especially like the mid-air shots!!! Even Daddy went down the hill a few times. The snow was melting a bit, so we had a great snowball fight as well."Talk" to you later...
