Compilation of pictures…


As we update, we somehow, always end up with a few pictures
that for some reason or another aren’t privileged enough
to have their own post, so…you get ‘em all together. : )

The snow/ice stuck around for a few days. We okie wimps got tired
of being inside, so we got out and enjoyed a walk together.

With all the snow melting and refreezing, a huge icicle
formed on the edge of the house. Benjamin claimed the prize.

Caleb took Maggie to a Tim Hawkins concert. VIP tickets! : ) They enjoyed it.

Seven years ago, the Cabreras hosted our family in Mexico. 
To say the least, we were super excited when they stopped by for a short visit!

We had a blast catching up, and hearing what God is doing in Mexico!

We had a grand time with two of the Linzey girls!
It had been 8 years since they had been to our house…yikes!!!

The weather has been perfect for Model T rides!Model T rides are a must!

We all enjoyed Elisabeth’s intriguing stories/pictures
from her 4 month stay overseas!

The time was filled with talking, laughing, recommending books,
sharing spiritual struggles/victories, talking, a Model T ride, 
talking about how to relate with siblings, a tour of our changed house,
talking…you get the idea. It was a blessing.

Dad and Mom went to a belated western themed Valentines dinner
with the couples from church, and a few long time friends.

With spring here we’ve been really enjoying the lovely weather!
( More on that in a future post : D)

Oh, and for those of you who don’t know…
getting to share life with a twin, is amazing!

Grandpa, Maggie, and I went fishing at one of Grandpa’s ponds.
We had fun even if we didn’t catch anything!

Heidi also got to test out the water for the first time. 
Lets say, she definitely got her paws wet! ; )

Speaking of Heidi…she’s just over 4 months old now.
She is learning fast, and in my opinion…has gotten a whole lot cuter.




Jeremiah 9:23-24 
“Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:
But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me,
that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness,
in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.”

Our dog Calli


Well, some sad news folks…a couple weekends ago
while coming up our Grandpa’s driveway our dog Calli ran in front of the car.
She was smart in mostly everything, except cars.
A couple hours later we decided to have her put down.

A few facts about her:
First off she was very loved. We got her from the local pound when
she was 12 weeks old and we owned her for just over 5 years.
We hadn’t had a dog in 14 years so she was the first for most of us,
making her quite the guinea pig.Calli

She was a great family dog! She favored no one…although
she would obey some more than others. : )

She knew the meaning of over 60 words/gestures/items!Callidog

She would retrieve ducks for us when we went hunting.DSC_0627

At times she could be very independent and strong willed.
But because of everyone’s effort to help train her, she was a very well mannered dog.

She loved to chase things, and loved to be chased. DSC_0918 Calli edited

We have met and kept a lot of friendships with neighbors because of her…her tricks were great icebreakers!Big pile

On the upside…we now have a new puppy!

She’s a Border Collie/Blue Heeler cross. She’s 11 weeks old, and very sweet.

A little shy at first but has warmed up and is catching on to training really fast.

After days of discussing names, and changing them a time or two…
we decided on the name Heidi.

She’s typical puppy! Nipping, yipping, and staying cute!
I’ll leave you with the most recent picture of her…isn’t she just darlin’?
