A Whole Bunch of Stuff

Then God said, “Let the earth bring forth the living creature according to its kind: cattle and creeping thing and beast of the earth, each according to its kind”; and it was so.

Genesis 1:24

Last week when I (Alexis) was outside I found a odd looking worm, caterpillar thing! So Kimber and I took some pictures of it-

Alexis' Pictures-

A closer view of the odd creature

This is the back end of the Caterpillar- it could be mistaken for the face if I hadn't seen the head on the other end!

Do you see the little head? It is almost as if it is wearing a bull suit!


Deep calls unto deep at the noise of Your waterfalls;All Your waves and billows have gone over me.

Psalm 42:7


Last week we went to the Herb Fair at Lavender Fields Farm and enjoyed ourselves very much! Caleb, Seth, Josiah, and Daddy went down to the river to fish and play until it was time for the session they wanted to go to, and Kimber, Mommy, Eden, and I went to the first session we wanted to go to.

...And under him were Eden, Miniamin, Jeshua, Shemaiah, Amariah, and Shecaniah, his faithful assistants in the cities....  

2 Chronicles 31:15a

Eden's Birthday was September 29th and she turned 6 years old!  We had a fun time sharing the day with her and I think she had fun too!!

Everyone at the Breakfast table! 

Happy Birthday Eden!  May Jesus always bless you!


Who says, ‘I will build myself a wide house with spacious chambers, And cut out windows for it, Paneling it with cedar And painting it with vermilion.’

Jeremiah 22:14

Eden got a birthday present from her Aunt Stacey and it was a "paint by number" Noah's Ark!
Eden did the final sheet and She let Josiah do the practice sheet!!  They had lots of fun!

A Random Picture of Josiah!  Kimber likes his Big Blue Eyes!


Ask me ever so much dowry and gift, and I will give according to what you say...

Genesis 34:12a

Kimber has always wanted a tripod for her Nikon D90 camera to make her pictures and videos even better; And one day when Me (Alexis), Caleb, and Seth were in the attic looking at all of the things that we hadn't seen for a long time, Seth found daddy's old tripod from his video camera! So we brought it downstairs and we found out that it fit Kimber's camera!! Kimber was really happy and thankful to Jesus for it.

His Princess,

Abigail Collins Baby Shower

"For He has strengthened the bars of your gates; He has blessed your children within you."
Psalm 147:13

On Sunday we went to a baby shower for our friends, the Collins.  The baby shower had been planned for a few weeks before but baby arrived before it! :)   Miss Abigail made an appearance even though she was still so tiny - around 4 lbs!!!  She was such a sweet little newborn even though all she did was sleep! :)  Seeing these little babies and pregnant ladies makes me want another little one around the house...(we are praying for that, in case you were wondering :)

Anyways, here are some of the pictures I took made into a collage.

All for Jesus,

P.S - Click on the collage for it to be enlarged so you can see each individual picture better!

Smoky Is Ours No Longer :(

"...the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself..."

Psalm 84:3

I had the idea to post a "Found" ad on for Smoky, just to see if there was an owner to be found. In less than 4 hours we had about 10-15 emails from people giving us info about African Greys, asking if they could have him if we didn't find the owner, and some more serious inquiries about people who had lost one and wanted some info. As with anything on the Internet, we had to be really careful because African Greys are very expensive and would greatly profit someone who might've deceived us as to him being theirs. :) Thankfully, Mama and Daddy are very aware of that fact and deleted all the emails but the serious ones! :) Anyways, to make a long story short on Sunday we got an email from a lady. She said they had lost theirs in August and that their parrot liked to say "peeper-pooper," which Smoky says a lot (when we're not within eyesight). That gave us a huge hint that these people might be the actual owners. After emailing back and forth, she gave another hint - he liked making a noise that sounded like a telephone. Every one of the descriptions matched and finally, they sent us his band number and it matched. So, we have found Smoky's owner and he is now in his own home. His real name is Ousea (pronounced like's French for bird) and he was born in March 2007 so he was really young.

Since today was our last afternoon with him we took him out and gave him his favorite snack...Cheezits. I'm glad the owners have been found but sad also because we've grown quite attatched to him and don't want him to leave.

Mr. Pabst (the owner) picked up him around 6 PM tonight.

Bye Smoky (a.k.a. Ousea) - we love you!
