Bit & Pieces of July

// Polka dots and ruffled bums - it's sure fun having another little girl

//This cutie patootie is one tough cookie! A face-plant on the sidewalk the day
before couldn't keep him from smiling and playing hard with the big boys.

//Obviously Brady gets his cuteness from his mama :)
We had such a sweet visit with Dawn, Brady & Colleen. 
You can come play at the farm anytime! xo

//Whether they come from the gardens or out of the fields, the flowers are just too
beautiful to leave outside right now.

// This little piggy went to market...
  //This is what happens when Mom says 'You're way too dirty to come inside!!'

//Shiny and clean again...and laughing as Gracie Jo gets her turn being hosed down.

 //And, if you're Levi, you ride your bike naked back to the house. LOL!!!

 //Another reason I'm glad we're only 10 minutes away from the E.R.


 //It's that time of year again

   //Never enough cuddles
 //Building a roof over the bunk for straw storage

 //S-l-o-w-l-y making this place our home (I think this took me almost a month to finish!)

 //We really need some rain
 //Oma and Opa came for a visit...and brought along family from Holland! Our company
included Piet, my second cousin, and Peiter, his friend. There were a lot of Peter's here today :)

 //Hot days and a construction crew working on the bunk calls for some good, old fashioned lemonade.


//And the happiest little doll that you ever did see!

And all of this is a gift from God, 
who brought us back to himself through Christ.
~2 Corinthians 5:18~

  2. Thanks for sharing the joys of family life with us who live a bit too far away. It makes me feel a little closer to home. And I have to agree with Marnie - the header photo is definitely awesome. :)
