Family Time

We had a good weekend, besides my sinuses acting up. :( I was supposed to see the midwife on Saturday, but she went out of town for the weekend. Which is fine with me. There is a lady that lives a couple of blocks from me that is due in a few weeks. So...if she has her baby early my midwife could just stop by here instead. Anyway....I wanted to share some pictures about our weekend.

Here is a picture of my wonderful Hubby reading books with Big T, Sweet E, and Little E. Isn't it precious! The children love books and always enjoy being read to.

We made biscuits for dinner last night and the children helped me. Sweet E wanted to cut all the biscuits out and put them in the pan herself. Of course...that caused a conflict because Big T wanted to do it too!

Here is a picture of all three of us working on the biscuits.

Here is a picture of Big T finally getting a chance to cut out a few biscuits of his own. I realized that I need to let the children help me more in food preparation. It is "easier" when they are out of the way, but then they don't learn anything. So, I am trying my best to let them help out more. It is amazing what children can do when you give them the chance. Well...I am off to start my laundry and let my children help. Blessings to all!
**UPDATE: God has blessed us with unexpected funds to help fix one of our vehicles! Praise the Lord! Now I won't have to be without the van!

Melanie, I LOVE the pictures, especially the one of Brian and the children.

Looks like you were having fun making biscuits.

Give them all a big hug from me.

Dearest Melanie, Darling,

I am glad to hear about the unexpected blessing from the Lord. It just reinforces His word, doesn't it? He is too good to us! :-D

In Christ,

Mrs. M.
