Here is Cowgirl Ellie. She put this little outfit together after seeing "Donkey Tales" performed by our kids choir at church. She galloped away on her "horse" singing all the way...It was a great musical play that acted out stories in the Bible where a donkey was used to do great things for God. Really cute.

When you have a friend from another country email and ask if you are doing OK, I think it is high time to update the blog and let you all know that we are doing just fine! :) THANKS for your love and concern Hanie! A bout of sickness has sweep and is still "sweeping" through our family. Mostly a head cold, but with so many under our roof, it can be hard to shake from the household! We have had some fun times these last few weeks despite our colds.....Mother's Day was a true blessing, with the opportunity to enjoy the day with my mom and hear my little sister's voice online from PNG, (even if only for a moment :). We have been enjoying beautiful weather here mid west and loving all the kiddy pool fun that comes along with that! My dad for Mother's Day planted some beautiful flowers in my front yard for me to enjoy. Now I must remind myself, among all the morning duties to water my precious flowers....you see, I am not the best at the "green thumb", but am trying really hard dad!!! :) He is quite the gardener! My hubbie planted our veggie garden and is also taking on a big home improvement project of putting in a new bath tub...with jets! :) I am so very proud of him in his endeavour....thanks Lovey! He has been studying all about hooking it all up...I am so thankful!
My beautiful mom and I on Mother's Day in front of my new garden!
OH, another thing...Ellie hurt her elbow and needed to wear a splint for a few days 2 weeks ago! I told you...we have been busy!!! :)
My HARD working man!
Yesterday, Ellie was a flower girl. She was just precious and absolutely beautiful! I was a bit teary helping her into her dress, which was a mini wedding gown in my book, a bit hard on the mommy heart, and she is ONLY four years old! I had fun getting her all dolled up and doing her hair! Sweet memories for sure.
So, with this very quick update, I have lots of pictures to share with you...hope you enjoy!
(Tomorrow is a big day yet again, as Gabs is turning SIX!!! Actually six years ago on this very day...I was in labor...wow, the memories rush back! Pics to follow of her big day tomorrow!)
