Thank you all for coming out and supporting our fundraiser at church yesterday,  We had so much fun and felt so blessed.  Odin and I are super excited for our mission trip this fall.  
Love this sweet card Jonah made for a senior friend of ours..



Our bunny butt pancakes



creative goodies from my little Liv
(wood stick vase)



Some friends of ours blessed this little star with another guitar...can you feel the excitement



beautiful  cards and letters from my kiddos..love their hearts



This girl was saving for a bunny for over a year and a half and every time the bunny lady checked in with us..the babies passed away.  She figured God was telling her to move on.   So after a few months of the losses she decided she 's using the money to paint her room.  And that she did.  It's been the same for the 12 years we've been there.  She chose mint green.  We had lots of little helpers painting every where!


This guy had a little too much fun with the glitter.


Odin trying to grill pizza in the snow storm we had a week ago.  It turned out great for not knowing how to do it.


Yes...guess who did this...




bottom braces on and she's got a sore mouth. She's decided she doesn't like them anymore.


This is what goes down while we're trying to school.




love this hard working man of man..


Olivia loves creating with Play dough



She made a little lantern and a Keurig for her American girl dolls. She never plays with her dolls but she loves making things for them.  She loves anything cute, small and miniaturized.



Thank you wonderful neighbors for the delicious warm banana bread!


Olivia made me some chapstick, shampoo and sugar scrub.


These 2 actually getting along and playing great together.  Win Win!


We love helping and making meals for families.


Yes..accidents happen all the time in this house on various levels.


Love our laundry room.  It gets kind of crazy in there when everyone is trying to get winter stuff on though.  


Their homemade cards rock..it's so fun to see what they come up with.


My wonderful friend blessed us with love from IKEA.  My kiddos love them at her house so now we have our own.
thank you, thank you






homemade soup is gone every time...i''ll have to start making a double batch. I will have to find a bigger pot then or use 2 pots.?.


Yup..let her do this and it felt totally weird to me.  I haven't had polished nails since in high school.


We are trying to finish school this week so we can finish working on our rummage stuff.  This year it is May 17, 18, 19th 8-6
We have 9 families that have donated lots of beautiful nearly new clothes, house d├ęcor, games, books, movies, toys and we have over 40 lego sets for sale.  We of course will have funky buns too.  Come on out and say hi.  It will be the most organized and clean rummage you have ever been too.
