Hello friends! Yep, we are still alive and living life!
Here’s a little update of our past month or so…it’s pretty random so just hang in there.
We celebrated Grandpa’s 82nd birthday! Even though his memory is failing, he is still a sweet, grateful, kind man! We have been blessed to have him living with us for the past year and a half!
Mom’s gorgeous flower beds…
We celebrated Mother’s day with our whole family! Abbie put together a wonderful meal and decorated the table with fresh flowers from our gardens!
Maggie with some of her little kids at daycare taking advantage of the hot weather!
Carinna took the kids she tutors fishing at one of their ponds and taught them how to filet fish! Fish-fry here we come!!
Abbie’s co-workers threw her a very special going away party!
This might be kind of confusing …a friend of a friend was competing in a qualifying round of a show we used to watch with Granddad called American Ninja Warrior and it was being filmed in front of the OKC capitol…so Caleb, Maggie, Abbie, and Benjamin got some free, hard to get tickets to attend! They had tons of fun and almost froze cause it was super windy!
Yes, it’s May, and that means tornadoes for Oklahoma! This was a normal “watch the weather cause there are severe storms across Oklahoma” kind of day! None of these pictures captured the actual tornadoes but they were impressive and very destructive! The worst we got was our electricity out for several hours. Many others didn’t fair so well.
Isaiah 43 – “But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine. When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. For I am the Lord thy God, the Holy One of Israel, thy Saviour…”
