free time...

matt should be doing this...but...
he apparently did not enter the 5th grade science fair b/c he developed a system. our grass will not grow & with the insane price of water from CAROLINA WATER...who i am going to write another Strong worded letter to...we can not water our lawn for more than 30 minutes. keep reading...it gets wackier...

he now siphons our used bath tub water from mags & pips...yuck...




so proud of himself!




out of the window...


there you go...water for your yard!
turf issues...only a man would care!

i can truly say we are GOING GREEN in every since of the word. i love my scientist, green, creative, crazy hubs. thanks matt for your mind over matter & i will update everyone just how many times he actually DOES water this way. surely, not nightly. who knows, it is matt we are talking about!

shave, anyone?


he did it! matt shaved last night around midnight. after he worked on the new watering system in the bathroom. (see other post) the kids cracked up this morning. libby claire had no idea who matt was. he is as smooth as he was in high school... sure will be some schmeck'n going on around here.

standing firm

the Lord set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
-psalm 40:2
i am slowly getting better. it feels great to get home. i never imagined i would ever get this sick & in so much pain. i am so thankful for my doctors, medicine, my steadfast husband, caring parents (all 4 of them) willing friends, prayerful siblings, patient children, but most of all the rest, mercy & healing i got from our Lord. i am on the road to recovery...just wish it was the interstate!
thank you all!

"knight" time fun

mac & ryan went to the knights game. rich snapped this picture but i am wondering...does the sign behind the boys say, "no photographs prior to game here!" thanks rich & ryan for taking mac!


there are so many words behind this picture. matt & i prayed from mid summer to january that God would put our lifegroup together. man, he did! we are family, in every way. we love everyone so much. the best part is we not only have 1 small group but 2. the adults enjoy all "spokes of the wheel." fellowship, prayer, communion (we eat...alot), & the Word & our children have their own little small group. wild & awesome, just as it should be. thank you to our lifegroup family. i am fed in so many ways from our group...not planning on being hungry anytime soon. i love you all!

hippity, hoppity!

easter made its way to river hills! all the kiddos had a great time on the egg hunt & at each craft table. well, all but our oldest. mac wanted out of the easter kiddy celebration. he is getting to big, to fast. libby claire had her first rice crispy treat & loved it. i could not get her away from the treat table. she posed for some pictures. which totally amazed me because she never slows down. mac & beau are at the creek catching snakes & bugs. to much clean fun for them for one day, off to the dirt!





this made me laugh so hard. pips was trying to get beau to look in her basket. he was so busy checking his loot.


off again!



precious girl!



we are going to need a wide angle lens soon



sweetest baby girl



rice crispy table...yummy!
