more pictures of my dad

My Dad

I want to talk about my dad today and what a wonderful and Godly man he is.  I have watched him so much over the years do so much for us kids and for my mother when she was still alive.  Today he is still there for us when we need him and he is there for your children when they need him.  We used to laugh about him not being able to go anywhere without someone knowing him and that still holds true today.  My dad is the kind of man who is willing to help out anyone in need.  If you need hay mowed, moved, baled he is your man.  Cattle moved, vaccinated, doctored etc, he is your man.  You have a flat tire he will change it for you.  You name it he will help you with it even if he doesn't know you.  He has even been known to pick up a stranger on the side of the road.  I am so proud that he is my father and the grandfather of my children.  I could not have asked for God to have given me a better father.  Thanks Dad for all that you do for us!

RayLeigh is officially walking

I posted a week or so ago that RayLeigh was trying to walk.  Well its official she is walking.  She is still crawling most of the time since she is still a little wobbly but she is walking all over our living room.  The kids just love it and get so excited when they see her walking.  They all start yelling walk to me just to try and see who she will go to.  Usually mom wins out becuase I am her favorite!!!!  Well at least I like to think so anyway.

I hope everyone has a good week and may God Bless You!

New Computer and prayer needs

So we finally broke down and got a new computer.  A lap top at that!  The kids love it especially Clay.  He loves to get on PBS kids and play all the games.  I am amazed at all the things that he is learning.  He really likes to play word world and is learning all kinds of word and letter sounds.

We are in need of some major prayers right now.  Some I will not mention as the Lord knows them.  I am struggling with training of the children.  I read the book To Train Up a Child.  It was recommended by a friend and was a great book.  What I am having problems with is consistency with the training.  Some times I am just so tired I am ready to give up and give in.  Please pray for my strength in this matter.  Thanks

Rayleigh is finally trying to walk.  Only a few steps at a time but it is a start and Clay is loving it.  He will stand a few steps a way from her and cheer her on.  Sometimes she will get so tickled that she falls down with laughter.  I thing she is the the one of the bunch that likes to laugh the most.  All of the older kids are always trying to get her to laugh.

Homemade bread

I have found a wonderful recipe for homemade white bread.  I have been fixing it so much lately that I thing my husband is getting tired of it.  I am not at home right now but will  publish the recipe soon.

New Computer

I so need a new computer!  I would love to post on my blog more but my computer died and we have not been able to get a new one.  UGH!  I am currently using a friends now because I can't figure out how to post from my phone.  I guess if I gave it to my oldest daughter she would probably have it figured out in no time.  Anyway until another day!
