Susanna is pretty excited that she has mastered the art of blowing raspberries!!! It seems daily Susanna is checking off one milestone after another, while doing so we are starting to see her personality appear... what fun this is as each child is so unique. I'm loving each stage of growth and looking forward to what ever comes next with my little raspberry bubble blower:)

There's much beauty in a December evening sky.....
Life in the country has opened our eyes to many things in which we have never experienced before. We are so very thankful for all the experiences and lessons learned. As I've said "many" times before, life is a journey and we're loving every minute of it good and bad :)

I'm 4 months old, and boy have I been busy the 4 months since I arrived! I have lived in the city for 6 weeks and then moved to the country. I have been on 2 vacations, the first to the mountains and the next one to Florida....where I went to see Minnie Mouse:) I just enjoyed my first Thanksgiving, and am now looking forward to Christmas. Each day I work at the store with my family. OK, so I nap a lot while there, but when I'm awake the customers love talking to me...big people are so funny how they talk silly to me to try and get me to smile. I normally smile so they don't feel uncomfortable, you know what I mean? Not sure you know that I'm the baby of the family, I'm #12 and Wow, my siblings all adore me....truly they do! They are the greatest sisters and brothers in the world, one of them is always around when I need them.....even when Mama says not to get me out of my swing because there isn't anything wrong with me! You know Mama is right, I'm just making lots of whiny crying noise cause I see people and want to be held....and there are no tears in sight, got to work on those fake tears ;) Mama loves me so much too, she gives in to my siblings and they pick me up....ah it's the good life I'm telling you. The picture above is me smiling at Bekah. I gave her this big smile for all her entertainment, she is a hoot with her songs and silly voices! Let's see what else about me???? Oh I like to ride in the car, I enjoy chewing on toys, I'm a jabber box it's fun to hear my own voice, I love to take a bath, I'm thinking who ever came up with swaddling blankets they rock! Life is a new adventure each day:)
There is so much more I could share, but it will have to save for another day. A day that I can get my Mama to slow down enough to post lots of pictures of me, from the time I came home until now....I have really changed!
Good night all!!!!!

I'm thankful for the ability to go to my sink and have "clean" water flow from the faucet. We have been on mission trips and seen children drink from ditches and puddles. We have seen Mama's walk to the community well for water, which was dirty and filled with parasites. So, I'm thankful for clean fresh water that flows freely with a turn of a knob. We are privileged and blessed to have no fear of sickness from the water we drink or lack of supply.

I love that we have the freedom to teach and train our children. Our family loves history and I enjoy reading with my kiddos. Life is learning and each day life opens the door to numerous teachable moments, I'm thankful I can be there to help guide and teach my kiddos in those moments.

|Wesley lost his front teeth last week!|
The kind that run, jump and play until they almost can't go any longer. For boys who love on their baby sisters, and then go and squash a bug :) Boys that talk of Roy Rogers and a shoot out, then in their next breath speak of Jesus.....Ah, boys they bring much joy to this Mama's life, I love them to the moon and back!

Why does time go so much faster as we get older?....September already, 2 birthdays this month!....To blog or not to blog?....Time to nurse Susanna......I need to make a new grocery list.....Napping, napping as an adult is wonderful, wish I had appreciated it as a child!.....Ah, new babies are pure joy, sleep or no sleep ;)......Boy, we sure have accumulated a lot of 'stuff' over the years....We need to make a trip to Goodwill to donate this stuff!....Nurse Susanna....Having children from adults down to a new born is interesting, definitely not something I thought I would ever have......Crayon on the wall, grrr! Not funny!!!.....The seasons of life change quickly, I pray as I get older I always remember these seasons....There are only a few more days of swimming left, I need to make sure the kids enjoy them....Almost time to feed Susanna, again.....My 2 grandmothers are 93 and 92 they still live on their own, hard to imagine being that age.... Strange how years ago I thought the infant/baby stage was the best, now I see every stage is awesome!...Arthur has been so busy, we need a date night, well with Susanna :)....Fall is around the corner, so many places to go, events to attend, oh and yummy fall foods....Do I continue to blog or call it quits??.....We should go pick apples this year.....I love watching my children turn into adults, getting their own ideas, interests, convictions, and best of all hearing them speak what's on their hearts and in their dreams, truly a joy! In a few weeks we'll all be working at the store again, and back to full days of school. I'm looking forward to that.....Baby skin so soft, and the smell oh the smell!...Christmas, soon I'll have to think about Christmas!....Nurse Susanna, a sweet time to cuddle and hold my small one close.... I need to go to the post office, I have packages to mail.....School, I need to write down my project ideas....Potty training, Mary Ann is ready but Mama isn't?! In a few weeks I'll work on that with her......Cleaning house, seems we have cleaned our house more this summer than ever!...I sure wish I had been able to can lots of veggies this summer. Maybe next summer will be my big year of canning....Littles have such adventures each day, it's so fun to watch their imaginations unfold....Sisters, tea parties, dress up and baby dolls what a fun combination....Brothers, airsoft, Legos, water fights, wrestling, and Roy Rogers life is never dull....Adult children, deep conversations, laughter, a special bond with siblings, and young wisdom so very refreshing...AGE, yes, age I'm getting older and I see it. I don't mind my age or who I see in the mirror, not as youthful as I once was but that's OK. In all the ups and downs I have had in life I wouldn't change a thing, not even the hard times for those have shaped me into who I am......
Life is a journey and I'm taking it one day at a time :)
