This weekend was a memorable one to be sure!

Here's an overview:

A dinner date with my husband, my parents and darling Ella...A barbecue with many of our church friends and their beautiful families... and a girlfriends night out for me, my sister and a couple of friends. What a weekend to remember!! It's wonderful to me how us girls can go out for a movie, and yet still end the night with prayer for one another's needs... God can be made a part of everything we do!

These are some pics to share some of the fun we have been having as a family of seven!

We walked down to the bike shop and my darling husband bought me a beautiful new bike. Of course it was a necessity as I had found a wonderful bike cart at a yard sale a few days before for $15.00! As seen here...

Big smiles (:

We also fine tuned all of our other children's bicycles; filling the tires with goo, pumping them up with air, adjusting seats for our ever-growing brood...

Mommy's angel is proud of her new, "hand-me-down" bike with training wheels.

My main man is working on a like-new bike we bought for $25.00 at a yard sale for our oldest daughter!

Along with handling the demands of many helmet adjustments, bike tire goo ooze and training wheels galore, my talented husband wrote a new amazing worship song... a beautiful bud, born out of tragedy, which then bloomed into a fragrant, melodic song of praise to our God. He's a one-of-a-kind man, my husband... my life's greatest blessing.

Here's a cute snapshot of my firstborns happy
smile! Why? Because she got a phone call from her out of town cousin and was able to play Club Penguin online with him today, all the while talking to him on speaker phone! It's a sort of online chat room where you each have your own penguin and can play games together...ummm, in a monitored, fun, safe, kiddie style type of chat way that is.

Oh, and did I mention my little one is 10 weeks old now? She's a smiley, sweetheart who sleeps well(7-10 hours actually (!)) and as of today weighs in at 10 lbs 12 ounces and is 23 inches long! She has had her first cold already but handled it marvelously and I believe the congestion is just about over with. Poor baby!

Praise the Lord for His continual grace and mercy. Still serving Him and excited for the things He has in store for our family! Amazing, the things He is doing my heart... He cares for us, and wants even better things for even me, the worst of sinners...

Isn't God good?

Deuteronomy 10:21-He is your praise; he is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes.
