The past two weeks have been rather busy for our family. Out of town friends, church events, house projects, and just simple living have been thoroughly enjoyed. It's weeks like these that really help me understand how perfect the ways of God are, how much of His love I can see around me and wonder why He chooses to bless a sinner like me. Instead of focusing on one event, I've decided to post pictures of random things that have taken place in our home recently and share them here.


A new screen was put on the deck.

Framing was cut and put in.

Mrs. H. showed Abby how to rinse her paint brushes.

The chilly weather didn't keep the men from grilling.

Several rounds of Blokus were played, and I discovered I'm not very good at it. :)

Pizza rolls were made and consumed.

A bench was found to sit upon that was close enough to a table so we could get a group portrait.

Small swings were available for the gents to use and it looks like Abigail offered to push.

See, there were three people in the boat! :)

Abby added some excitement by getting her kite stuck in the tree.



There was a park to be enjoyed by the little people

A Passover Sedar was attended.

An Easter dress was made for a friend in the great state of Texas.

We spent a lovely morning with good friends celebrating and rejoicing with them as we showered mom and baby with gifts.
And like this little guy, I am quite happy. :)
The End.

  5. Huzzah, a new post! Hmmmmmm, some of those pictures look a little familiar. I wonder if I have seen them before...

    Praise God that we are not blessed based on our own merit, but on the immeasurable grace and love of our Creator. It is a glorious thing, methinks, to be blessed.

    I beg to differ, you are very good at Blokus, I'm just better. *grin*

    Pizza rolls are going to be imported to California, just so you know!

    Ok, I surrender, there were three.

    Glad to hear you are happy, just like him...

  6. Christa,

    No worries, we'll have loads of fun when y'all come up! ;)

    Yes, Jonas is growing so fast! He's always all smiles and looks just like an Evans. :)

    July will be here before ya' know it! :) Love you!

    Jen,

    Thanks, it was fun to put together. I used the same pattern that I used for the white dress I made for Jess and posted pictures of a while back. My friend saw the post and asked if I could make one for her. Yes, eyelet is just lovely! :)

    Kattyrae,

    Thanks, it was a long post in coming. :) Glad you like the dress, I'm rather fond of it too. :)

    Mrs. Winton,

    Yes, random posts are fun...I'll try and get the recipe over to you!

    Ben,

    Yes, they would be a little familiar to you, wouldn't they? :)

    Yup, you are MUCH better than I am. I just might practice over the next few weeks and then try again. Maybe it was the color, though... :) It's like Dutch Blitz...I really stink at that game, so I prefer to play on teams...especially if Emil is playing! :)

    Import away...lemme know if you want the recipe. I'm glad you liked them.

    It's a wonderful thing to be happy...

  7. Hi Tiffany--I'm a Jewish reader of your blog. (Did you know that you had any? :-)) I'm curious to hear about the Seder you attended. Was it a traditional Jewish seder, a Messianic one, a Jewish seder with the symbolism reinterpreted for Christians...? Had you ever been to one before?

    Happy Easter!

  8. Hi Jessica!

    The Sedar we attended was put together by some Messianic Jewish friends we have, but I'm not sure how traditionally Jewish it actually was.

    The pastor pointed out that many of the customs and the prophecies used during the Sedar were fulfilled in Jesus, so I suppose it was reinterpreted for Christians. I've only been to one other Sedar and it was put together by some Presbyterian friends several years ago.

    Thanks for stopping by!
