Our Winter Wonderland...The End Of March!!!

"God thunders marvelously with His voice...

He does great things which we cannot comprehend...

For He says to the snow, 'Fall on the earth'...

Likewise to the gentle rain...

and the heavy rain of His strength...

He seals the hand of every man...

That all men may know His work." ~ Job 37:5-7

A Blizzard...

For the 10 years that we've lived in Oklahoma, we've never once been under a "Blizzard Warning"... that is until last Friday! Yes, we've had some pretty crazy weather for the end of March! This past weekend, we had a mixture of snow, sleet, rain and even a thunderstorm! We probably got around 6 inches of snow with deeper drifts in some places. Towns just to the north of us got around 20 inches!!! Here are a couple pictures.

I wanted to share a song that Sabrina made up last Friday to help explain our situation. :)

It is sung to the tune of "The Widow's Might" theme song.

"A storm is headed to this house in snow and wind and rain.
The lightening's flashing o'er this house the wind sweeps o'er the plain..." :)

Chloe and Shenandoah

One afternoon a few days ago, some friends of ours came over for a visit. They have a baby girl who is about 3 weeks older than Shenandoah. We had a nice visit and I enjoyed taking a few pictures of Chloe and Shenandoah. I thought they looked so cute sitting together!!!
Note: It was hard to get a picture with both of them looking at the same time! :)

Lost Teeth...

When you have a large family, you end up with a lot of lost teeth!!! :)
This past week, to his great delight, Seth lost his first two teeth! Sabrina and Stasia both lost a tooth as well...four lost teeth in one week!!!

Sabrina's 12th Birthday!!! March 19th

March 19th was Sabrina's 12th birthday. She is such a sweet sister and a wonderful part of our family. We love you Sabrina, Happy Birthday!!!

I had the privilege of doing Sabrina's hair for her princess birthday. It was a lot of fun!

...They are so mischievous!!! The other day, Sabrina went down to check on the animals and she found Sariah (our mama goat) with this feed container around her neck!!! Apparently, she had figured out how to get it open to try and eat the feed inside(thankfully it was empty), but she got it stuck around her neck instead!!!

The Ringer Family Came For A Visit...

A couple weeks ago, the Ringer family came and spent five days with us. Here are a few pictures of their stay with us...
