By the word of the LORD were the heavens made, their starry host by the breath of his mouth. He gathers the waters of the sea into jars; he puts the deep into storehouses. Let all the earth fear the LORD; let all the people of the world revere him. For he spoke, and it came to be; he commanded, and it stood firm. -Psalm 33:6-9
There were some little ponies there! Lucy was a little scared of them, but I think she enjoyed taking pictures.
We got Mama new mulch as a Mother’s Day present. We also added the rocks right here. I love the way they look!
We had some mushrooms growing in our yard.
I’m a fan of mushrooms. They’re cute. #IKnowImCrazy
And no, we don’t have different colors of mulch. It just looks like that in the pictures. 🙂
And we went over to our friends’ house last Sunday, and their daughter found a rabbit’s nest while we were there–with baby rabbits in it! We tried to count how many, but I don’t think we ever came to an absolute.
Their eyes weren’t even open yet! They were sooo cute!
Lucy tried on one of their dress-up dresses while we were there. It looked lovely on her, but this picture turned out blurry and the lighting was horrible. 🙁
We got to take Lucy swimming for the first while we were in Guangzhou, and she loved it! We wanted to take her again (plus the rest of us love swimming too, including little brother), so we started going swimming on Sunday afternoons. I thought I would post some pictures. (Just F.Y.I. these pictures are from three different days; hence the people pictured in more than one swimsuit! 🙂 None of them are from today, but some of them are pretty recent.)
The lighting is really bad in there from where I was sitting because there is a window right behind the pool, but this one turned out pretty bright.
I love these silhouettes!
These pictures turned out sooo well. . . because I got up and walked around the pool to be closer to the swimmers. Good pictures are hard work sometimes. 🙂
Okay, some of these are going to be kinda’ old, but I thought I’d post about what we’ve been doing lately. First of all…
Dad and Spencer installed a slide in our basement by laying cardboard on the stairs. It’s really incredibly fun! 🙂
In motion. *sigh* But those two are always in motion, even without a slide! 🙂
Yes, even us “bigs” did it…
Including me. 🙂
I never thought I’d be the one to post about crafts, but this was just so cool, I HAD to post about it! It’s really simple: you just write/draw something on a piece of paper with a white crayon, and then water-color over the top. The white shows through!
Voice of Experience: make sure your crayon-lines are thick. Otherwise they don’t show very well. Oh! and if you don’t think it’s working at first; try painting a little more before giving up, because if takes a minute sometimes.
Guess who made this one? Mama made one that said ‘Joy’ and I went with the fruit-of-the-spirit-theme. And seriously what other one could I do???
I also made an “H” [for Hanna], but the crayon didn’t show up real well… I’m blaming it on my brush–and whoever stole my first brush (by mistake) and gave it to Lucy. Mama got me a different one that worked better, but it still only worked so well.
What’s that? Oh! no, there’s no point. Just me being artsie again, that’s all.
Lu saw people playing dominoes at grandma’s house, and was very interested. We got ours out and she played it with Becca and I one evening while the big boys were gone and Mom was putting Michael to bed.
I found dominoes quite picturesque:
We had these left over, and I figured out that they all went together…
I wanted to make sure I acknowledged the existence of Valentine’s Day, so I posted this, but I thought I’d share a little more about our day. Are you guys sure you don’t mind it when I bury you in pictures I took on my little silver camera?
Cinnamon rolls are a pretty typical holiday-breakfast at our house. I ask for them every year on my birthday! 🙂
It took me foreeeever to get a clear picture of those roses!
P.S. I now know why someone came up with the abbreviation V-Day: typing out the whole V-A-L-E-N-T-I-N-E-‘S D-A-Y is monotonous!
