Isaiah 40: 11

"He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to
his heart; he gently leads those that have young."

The Big Boys

One day you will wake up and find some silly pictures on your computer that your children who were once so little and incapable of doing much of anything have figured out how to do all on there own. Then you think, "where indeed has the time gone?"
Hard to believe this is really the same little people

See there used to be just 4 of us
Won't it be interesting to see how things change in the next 10 years!

Joseph Now........
Joseph Then...........

Sadly, when Joe was born we had no working camera (just like poor Aunt Darcee). So there are really almost no pics of his infancy. Sigh. The funds just did not exist. It sure has been fun to see him grow and mature though camera or not!

Another Grand Adventure

For some time now we have tossed the idea around of the 8 of us taking a trip to Japan. Well believe it or not it is actually happening! Departure date is set for Columbus day(I thought that was fitting this being a trip to a New World and all) and a return on the 12th of December. We will be staying in Sakura very near the Navy Base in Yokosuka. We will have a furnished 2 bedroom/2 bath condo which should be fun.=} Thankfully there is a park/ball field and grocery store next door. So there you have it. Don't know how regular the posts will be from now on as I have a little bit extra on my plate. But, we will do our best to keep ya'll updated once we get there.

Moriah Jane's Turn

The little pink bundle

Bath time

Doin' the Puyallup

Aunt Vee a.k.a. my right hand gal

This little lady grew up SO fast. I think out of all of the kids her childhood went by in the blink of an eye. How does that happen? It is pretty neat that we live in a day and age with cameras to chronicle the past and help us remember the days gone by. I have so many pictures they are just the old fashioned kind. Maybe some day I will invest in a scanner.
