My Kids...They Love Each Other!

Ruth and Shalom. They are such wonderful gifts, I don't know what else to say. Ruth is starting to do more around the house. This past week, she helped me by putting her clothes away...yes, she actually took her clothes, walked them down the hall, and put the close hamper ...and THEN put them in their box! Did I mention that Ruth is becoming quite the character too? She likes to tease Josh, and tickle him. She has this look in her eye when she is playing with you - you know she wants you to chase her!

Just thought I would share my kids.

Papa's Day Off

Josh takes Wednesdays off. This usually happens the day after or the day before his long work day. This past Wednesday, we stayed home and did nothing - except to make cookies. They were the kind Josh can eat - and experiment really - cornmeal chocolate chip. Interesting taste. The texture wasn't bad, actually. Josh has found that if he super heat the water he softens the cornmeal in, he can do anything with it! The other day, he made muffins (Wednesday, to be exact) and they turned out really good and fluffy too, you can't get stuff like that from just any old cook. It takes a genius like Josh to figure this stuff out. Can you tell I like to brag on my man?
I love him dearly...He may call us his God-sent girls, but he is MY God-Sent Hero!

Blue Moons DO Happen

Also, I can count on my right hand how many times I have seen Josh wear a button down shirt - that wasn't a flannel. One was in May of 2004 at my cousins wedding, the second was on April 16, 2005 when we got married. The third took place this weekend. Some staff members of CMTS got married, and Josh worked as a server, and HAD to wear a button down shirt. I HAD to document it, because it rarely happens...on three times since I have known Josh to be exact. So I am sharing it with all of you.

Our window project

The first two pictures are our window project. The lower shelf part will hold all sorts of herbs, and we will be putting bean plants and squash on the trellis.

My kid is SO cute!!!

Here is a cute story from yesterday - Josh's day off. Josh went looking for Ruth yesterday. When he walked down the hall calling her name, she came out of the bathroom with the toilet bowl brush. When he went into the bathroom, he found water all over the floor, her little potty seat with water in it, and wet toilet paper in Ruth's hand and on the big toilet seat...she had apparently decided her toilet needed cleaned out!

Since Ruth was born, she has shared a room with Josh and me, where else could we put her in our RV?!?!? So, because of all the moving did, we have been hesitant to put her in her new room. However last night, Ruth spent her first night in her own room, alone - and she slept for TWELVE hours!!!!

October Skies

Do you know how long it has been since I have experienced Fall? FIVE YEARS! Is that amazing, or what?!?!?!

My girls are
growing SO fast! Shalom is tipping the scales at 11 lbs! That just amazes me like crazy. To think last year at this time, Ruth was being put on formula because she wasn't gaining weight, and this year, Shalom is growing so very fast! God is SO good to me!

Josh and I are doing well too. Josh is building a garden INSIDE our home! We have this GIGANTIC window, that is perfect for putting a little garden in for the winter. On Sunday, Josh built the planter (out of a REALLY old, weatherworn ladder, and some old trellis), and soon we will be finishing it off and filling it with dirt. Josh wants to grow different kinds of lettuce, along with some garlic, lavender, oregano, basil, dill, savory, and some beans. I will add pictures to my blog ( as soon as I can.
