Out Numbered

I'm already out numbered in our house but today it occurred to me that with another boy in the works I am seriously out numbered.....and I kind of love it.

I do hope to have a little girl one day but right now my heart is in a place where I'm ok with a house full of boys. Actually I'm more than ok with it, I'm excited for it. I sometimes think about the future and what our house will look like if it is filled to the brim with handsome young men and I can't wait.

I get excited for my boys that Ryan is their daddy, that he is the earthly example that they have of a father. I get excited thinking about what they'll do, who they'll become and that I get to be along for the ride. I get excited for the wives that they might have one day and I pray for them. I pray that their wives will love Jesus and that their marriages will be founded on Him. I pray that I will love these young women and they me, and I pray that their babies will know and love the Lord.

Boys are such a blessing and although I'm tired tonight after a long day of seemingly endless discipline all I can think about is how much I love my boys, how I got more wet kisses today than I can count, how James called out "Mama, Mama, Mama" when he woke up from his nap and how his face lit up with joy when he heard Ryan come home from work.

Thank you Jesus for my boys and if it's your will, keep 'em coming.

Flour Boy

This morning I made muffins and thought it would be fun to let James "help" me cook. Here are some pictures from our flour filled morning. James got his very own bowl of flour and some cooking utensils, it was a mess but it sure was fun!

Now we're off to take a shower......he has flour everywhere.

Blueberry Picking

Aren't these guys good looking?

We went blueberry picking on Sunday after church and got 12 lbs of the amazing blue treats. James thought picking the blueberries was fun but he prefered squishing the berries in his hand a whole lot more.
