I’m sorry. I know it’s been so long since I’ve blogged. I really do have things to share, I just don’t seem to have the gumption to do it. I see a lot of competition in the bloggy world, I tend to pull away from anything competitive. I’m happy to let somebody else take the lead!
Here’s a recap of the last 4 weeks:
We celebrated Easter. The day started with a nice breakfast and lots of pictures. Church. The church we’ve been going to changed their service time from 9:30 to 10:30. It worked out fine for Easter Sunday but it’s a bad time for us a big family. Trying to sort through that…
After church we came home and prepared to have dinner at my dad and step-mom’s house. They live in Florida most of the year but have recently bought a townhouse near us and come up about once a month. That’s sure a blessing!
A surprise Easter Egg hunt. We don’t typically do this, the last time we did one was when Bubble Gum was a toddler. But boy was it fun and the kids were so happy! It was freezing outside and there was still some snow on the ground, but the sun was shining and hearts were warm.
Even the first-born son was there! That was a real treat. Though Chocolate Taffy had to work and we missed him immensely!
Mr. Taffy turned 40. All the pictures from that are on my phone. We didn’t have a big party or anything, but I did load up the dinning room with star shaped helium balloons and I tied a balloon to his truck while he was at work that said, “You’re HOW old?” That made him smile.
Our baby turned 2. Can I still call her my baby? Interesting thing about this child, her name means Jehovah’s perfection, she is our 7th (perfection) child and she was born on the 7th. See the pattern? So bizarre! I wasn’t induced or anything either, God just worked that out and it took me a while to connect the dots! ha!
One more birthday and we’re done! Yay! I love birthday’s but I enjoy the non-birthday season too! Because the end of birthday season marks the beginning of garage sale season! Whoop!
Spring is taking forever to land in Minnesota. This is definitely a trial of patience, but just like before I can still see hints of what is to come. Hope springs eternal.
Now more than ever we need to stay close to the Father. Times are uncertain, trials are many and the time is short. Hold fast dear friends!
The battle is the Lord’s,
