All is well

We celebrated Jackie's birthday in style on Thursday.  The diners enjoyed flank steak, mashed potatoes, mushroom gravy, broccoli with cheese sauce, hot rolls with butter, pineapple coconut drink and we topped it off with Red Velvet Cake and cookie dough ice cream.  Jackie felt very special and received all sorts of fun gifts, from hand me down nerf guns and books to fine parasols..

Silas chipped his tooth and has been lovingly coined "Dino Baby."  That was a particularly difficult incident to witness and come through, but all appears to be well now.

Libby is as funny as ever.  Asking me questions like, "Are we going to die tomorrow?" to, "When are we going to Target?" to, "Where's my bread, I want bread." to, "God won't hit(spank) me."  Lots of the ordinary and theology to be taught there.

Louisa has determined that the only difference between the cone and the sphere is the cone comes with ice cream.  Nevermind that the cone has a point and the sphere is round.

Colby understands that using "elbow grease" doesn't involve the literal use of the elbow, but in fact muscle..

Benjamin is expecting a box in the mail next week from the Lego company, and really hasn't much more to talk about than that.

I'm fine and so is Jake.

What a rundown! Sounds wonderfully busy over there at your homestead---I bet you are exhausted. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. :)

Sounds like a sitcom, but wonderful at that with the innocence of children.

Glad to hear everyone is doing well! Luke chipped his tooth right after Steve left too, it was quite an experience, I came around the corner to see blood and tooth bits pouring from his mouth! These little blessings sure keep us on our toes : )
