Very Exciting News!!! Praise The Lord!!!

We have some very exciting news that we wanted to share.

Mommy is going to have a baby!!!

She is due the beginning of December. We are all so excited for this wonderful blessing that the Lord has given us!!!

"Behold, children are a gift of the Lord; The fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one's youth. How blessed is the man who has his quiver full of them!"

~ Psalm 127:3-5

Family News Update

Well, once again I am desperately behind in blogging!!! Time seems to be going by like a whirlwind!!!

We are so thankful to be able to say that mommy's ankle is doing much better and that she can walk on it again now.

We are now getting about 70 eggs a day on average!!!

The weather here has been unusually hot!!! We have been getting a lot of severe thunderstorms. A few weeks ago, one storm produced 7 tornadoes just to the east of us. Then last week, we were without power on three different occasions due to all the storms we had! I love the thunderstorms that we get and greatly enjoy tracking them with radar!!! I am our families' weather girl (in case you didn't know that already :) and I love to keep us updated!!!

Well, I hope everyone enjoys the new posts that I FINALLY got around to publishing. :) I'll try to post again soon without letting another two months go by!!!

Stasia's Baptism May 25th

Sunday, May 25th was a very special day. As a testimony to her faith in our Lord Jesus Christ, Stasia Grace was baptised. Justin Southerland was baptised too. It was so wonderful!!!

Before the baptisms, Daddy and Mr. Southerland both shared a little.

Daddy and Stasia talking about why she was going to be baptised.

Daddy baptised Stasia in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

After church, my younger siblings played in the swimming pool.
