Happy Birthday Destiny!

Sweet as a rose! Fun as a toy! Smart as a genius! Funny as a tickle! Crafty as a fox!
MY NIECE Destiny had her 15th b-day today! I love her tons and tons!
It was great to be a part of Destiny's birthday today. First....Anna and I went to the mall with her and Jodi and we all had fun. Little shopping, little chocolate, little food, little laughing...oh yes! We could have spent a week together and not gotten bored or felt ready to stop. But, we could not do that so the quick trip had to suffice. :)
Second, this evening we had a great time going to a concert with all the kids. Do I reveal we (Jodi and I) took all our kids in her van? No, I won't say that. We met Liisa and her kids, it was awesome. The fetured artist was Francesca Battistelli. Great singer...and from Nashville I might add. :) I loved the others who opened for her. Logan and Jessica. (Check the younger generations blog to see more details...of names and stuff....I just loved their music.) It was great to have the Deems come too. God was gloified and His name praised tonight!

Destiny is an inspiration to the younger kids (older kids too). She is very talented. She loves God with all her heart. It's been amazing to see her talents flourish this past year! Her singing, her sewing, her drawing, her artsy-self has blossomed for sure!!!! I do just love the girl....I can't help it!!! She's so much like Jodi, yet so different, its cool.
To make this post even better, you should know...tomorrow we get to go and celebrate her birth some more at the ice skating rink...thanks to Grandma Dot and Grandpa Ken. Stay tuned for more pics.

Happy Birthday Destiny I love you!!!

Come to find out.....

Alex just confided in me the other day that when I was pregnant with Jebediah he prayed every night that "this baby" (whomever it be) would love music like he does. Oh no....I think it worked! Jeb was born on Alex's birthday, looks just like Alex did as a baby, and Jebediah is a nut for music! It is crazy how some days will be so cranky and upset and yet the minute he hears a strum or a bow on the fiddle of music playing....he quits his fusing and follows the sound with a smile! Wow, does God answer prayer or what? Wait a minute....two Alex Goldman - music freaks - gotta hear music kids in one houseAHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! Now I need prayers! HA! HA! HA! As seen in the pics...Jeb WAS cranky until Alex began to play..........instrument is unknow but music is a MUST!

Belated but still Beloved! HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Girls

Kaylee my little niece is growing up quickly. Born on mom's birthday she turned two yesterday. She is a princess and a beautiful girl. I wish we could have been together for her birthday, but our loves and prayers are with you sweetie. Love you Kalee. I know you are going to enjoy your new little brother Ethan. Teach him to love Jesus and others like you do!

Mom, she is the one of the greatest gifts to us all! My mom has given, sacrificed, served, loved, and overcome so willingly her whole life! She loves dad and honors him with all her might. She loves the Lord and prays for her kids and grandkids often...very often I am sure! My mom encourages so much to us all, infact she believes in us more then I think she should...but we love it right (everyone). As I always say I hope to be as awesome as her someday! The older I get the more of a best friend she is to me....and she has always been my best friend. I love to be with her, just talking or driving, just learning for her is wonderful. Happy birthday are the BEST and I Love you MOST!

Liisa had her birthday a few days ago the 9th....ooops. Not that I forgot, just did not post yet, and she is worth a post! She is a wonderful sister-in-law and friend. She is supportive of her husband and stands by him in whatever he says or does. Liisa definitly loves her kids. Shes taught them well to Love the Lord. I am very blessed to have Liisa in my life, as well as in our family. Liisa cooks fabulous, cleans emaculate, cares tenderly, loves people with a pure heart of care. I love you sis! Happy belated B-day!

Yesterday, after I dropped off the older kids at workman class, I surprised the little ones. I took them to the store, bought root beer and pretzels and went to the park. It was fun and they were very surprised. It's fun surprising kids. I had my camera....and as you can see I used it!! LOL It was very pretty out yesterday, and today its raining. Crazy deal.

Don't Forget the Time Change

Fall back...Yes, set your clocks an hour back tonight! (O.K. everyone but the Arizona and Hawaii people). This is the best time change, because we gain an hour. After staying up late last night watching the awesome movie 'Martin Luther' honor of Reformation Day, I can use a little extra sleep :)

Ohhh and
