I ran across these great, loving pictures of my Mom and Daddy. After 39 years they are still in love. Isn't that sweet? I just love them -and the excellent example they have given me of what I want for MY marriage!
Ephesians 5:8 "For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light." What would the offspring of light look like? Would the light linger on everything it touches? If I walk as the offspring of LIGHT, would I bring light to everything I touch? Would it grow and warm the people around me? Walk as CHILDREN of LIGHT! My life verse.
Eliana is now 12 -going on 25. Very smart and loves science. She adores animals and is an amazing artist. She is my big and responsible girl who can handle almost anything, and has proven to have a real talent with little kids. She is very musical, more than w expected, and is currently thuroughly enjoying a recently acquired piano.
Mia is my little soft spirit. Full of compassion and quick to tears, She is our very affectionate child. Mia is SOCIAL, and makes friends everywhere she goes! She is the first o give up last treat to someone else, and she always is the first to apologize. Monkey Do also is constantly looking for new ways to earn money. I think she will be a very hardworking little entrapreneur. Mia also has a real gift for crafting, excelling in a variety of difficult crafting arts. Quite impressive to this momma! She recently turned 11 and we can't believe how fast she has grown.
Now eight, Noelle is still full of spunk! She is a trooper, is willing to try anything, and has her Daddy and Grandpa wrapped around her little finger. She is FUNNY! She has a great sense of humor. Noelle adores ballet and all things uber girly. She "practices" her stellar moves and dreams of being a ballerina. Her favorite wardrobe item is the fluffiest tutu you have ever seen. She is a joy to have arouns.
Emma is smart and funny. WAY too smart. She is incredibly gifted verbally and loves to make us laugh. She is a nurturer and has a mind of her own. She is curious about everything: hense her Monkey name! ANd as she has grown she has gotten a little bossy. She and Noelle share a love of all things frilly and are peas in a pod. She is a lot of fun!
Kenny, now three, is our only boy and the last child on the tail end of our family. We never dreamed that when Emma was still very young I would become pregnant with our only boy. My, oh, my! Is he ever all boy and the only child who inherited his Daddy's blue eyes! Nothing about four girls prepared me for a boy! He is beyond busy and full of rambunctious spunk. What a lesson for me! They are different from the womb!
