20 minutes away on the phone

"I'm dressed up like Santa Clause...my cheeks are like roses, my nose like a cherry." This is what Azariah said as I walked into my room after 20 minutes on the phone with my mom, and this is what he and Evalyn looked like! There's never a dull boring moment in our household, and I never thought I'd find myself wishing for one...sometimes:)

As I'm typing, Evalyn's by the door rattling off, "one-two-three-four-five-six-seven-eight-nine! come!" Her and Azariah are playing hide and seek! Of course they hide in all the same places and pretend to be surprised every time! Ooops, baby down! Gotta Run!

Thursday Mornings

We are still getting used to the hours that come with campus ministry. Since college students are night owls, often times Joshua is gone a couple nights a week as well. So to compensate, He stays home thursday mornings to spend time with us and to cook a big breakfast. It's been such a treat! Often times he'll make delicious omelette's with veggies and goat cheese, but this morning we teamed up to make a pancake breakfast. It was tough for the kids to wait for it to be done, and they devoured their food almost immediately. But it was fun to sit down together and enjoy some time as a family. The featured item this morning was the award winning cherry jam from Door County. Yum Yum!

Growing kiddos

Hiya! Just wanted to post a couple recent photos for you grandparents! Evalyn's been cutting through her molars which has been a tough process, but will be very handy and aid in her eating habits. She wants everything her brother has. Recently she's learned how to use a spoon and scoop her own food out of her bowl. Less whining for "more food" and I can eat at the same time as everyone else:) These other photos are of the kids taking their morning quiet time. It's just amazing as a mom to see your kids finally doing what you've worked so hard to instill. This particular morning, I'd mentioned it was quiet time...Azariah chose his bed and Evalyn underneath the coffee table in our living room. I CHERISH slow, quiet mornings...they are rare:)
