Bowling, Birthdays & Baby

"Now the third day was Pharaoh's birthday, and he gave a feast for all his officials. He lifted up the heads of the chief cupbearer and the chief baker in the presence of his officials"
Genesis 40:20
Friday afternoon my grandparents and cousin-once-removed, Stefanie (sp?), came down for an overnight-stay. They came in town because they were going to be part of the pit crew tour guides at the Nascar Race on Saturday. As some of you might know, it was canceled so we ended up spending time with each other instead. Caleb had left before they arrived going with our other grandma (Na-naw) to shop and stay the night. (Na-naw takes us each "out" on our birthdays and gets us some things and then we spend the night at her house and leave for ours the next day) Saturday morning, after playing "31" with Skittles, we all left (except mommy who had to do some billing and Lydia) for the bowling alley. There we met up with Na-naw and Caleb and played 2 games of bowling. Daddy won once and grandpa and daddy tied once. We all had lots of fun! Afterwards we went to Taco Bell together. After a wonderful meal, Na-naw bought some of their cinnamon twists and then we went home. Everyone left about 40 minutes later. I forgot my camera for most of these events so, no pictures!
This is a really random picture of one of our gardens that daddy and the boys worked on one of the days last week. They did a wonderful job - even though we were supposed to help them (we did canning instead). I just took a picture because I wanted to show y'all what a wonderful job they did!

Back to Friday and Saturday...

This is Miss Stefanie reading to Seth, Eden, and Josiah.

We celebrated Alexis' and Caleb's birthday on Saturday night. Alexis' birthday is today and Caleb's is tomorrow. Lexi turned 11 and Caleb will be turning 9.

We made pizza for their birthday dinner and camped out in the den. We watched "Horton Hears a Who" and "Milo and Otis" while eating dinner and ice cream. We didn't have time to make their cakes so we did ice-cream. We're making the desserts they wanted today.

Sorry about the pinkish-red tinge. I'm working on figuring out different camera settings.


Lexi made her own hats for her own birthday! I think she did a pretty good job!

Dinner in the Den.

Lydia. (I know she always steals the camera - she's just so cute!)

Seth and Caleb - brothers forever!

Lexi and Eden.

Seth and Caleb.

Caleb. He got a Jonathan Park Audio Series and some candy. (Tomorrow he's getting a Bible cover) We also got him "Boyhood and Beyond" by Bob Schultz. Both of these products are sold at http://www.visionforum.com/.

Lexi with a card drawn by Eden. It's a Christmas Tree. Lexi got a Jonathan Park Audio Series too (a different one), a "Catch the Sewing Bug" book, a bracelet that says "Daughter of Christ" (she's wearing it in the picture) and some candy.

Caleb and Lydia.

Servin' up the ice cream! Our flavors were: Chocolate-Chip Cookie Dough and Chocolate-Coconut Duetto (daddy ate that one!).

Bumblebee Lydia.

One day last week, after eating home-made salsa and chips, Lexi came to me and asked her to take a picture of her creation...

NEW!!! You can teach your kids history and use trash at the same time! Wow! Teaching your kids about Ancient Egypt? Now you can learn about and make a hat on - QUEEN NEFERTERI! What a deal! Just eat a bag of chips, cut off 1 inch of the bottom of the bag and place on head!

LOL! :)


The pictures below were taken Sunday afternoon.

Daddy. He didn't know I was taking pictures of him (I turn the sound off on my camera so no one really ever knows I'm taking a picture) and this was his look. Maybe I shouldn't take pictures of people without them knowing...:)

Lydia was being the sweetest little thing that afternoon. I just sat there and took pictures while she played with Hannah and Eden.

Looks so relaxed - doesn't she?

Mommy likes this one!

When daddy came in for our book time he played with Lydia for a bit before. She loved rubbing her hands and feet on his face.

Daddy laid her on the ground and she started crying and then he started playing "Peek-A-Boo" with her and...

...she smiled!

Willingly Jesus',
Kimber :)
