Branson--Shepherd of the Hills

I just realized that I had never published this post from our summer vacation in Branson. Better late than never, huh?? :-)

Shepherd of the Hills--LOVE this outdoor drama!!

They have a pre-show frog-jumping contest for kids. Kaden was all about that. Actually Khara loved it too. One huge bullfrog!!

Kelsey wanted no part of holding a frog.

Young Matt and Sammy Lane


Mandy--Sammy Lane's friend!

My kids LOVE drama so this show was a real hit!! They can't wait to go back!

Precious Moments Chapel

In September we took a little trip to Precious Moments Chapel. We are only about an hour from the chapel but had never taken the kids. I always find it interesting to see the changes/additions that Mr. Butcher(the creator of Precious Moments) has made since my last visit. He has made the final painting on the big Hallelujah Square Scene. He has also created the figurine, character, (not sure what they call it) to be released once he passes away. He included that figure on the Hallelujah Square Scene--Bitter Sweet!

In totally unrelated news, Khara had a little scare at school a few weeks ago. The nurse called me and told me they thought Khara may have fractured her thumb! Dr. visits and X-rays later, we were so thankful to learn that it was just badly sprained/jammed. Who would have thought that a cartwheel can do this to your thumb?? This picture does not show near the extent of coloring that her thumb turned--I was amazed!


Finally taking the time to post--Woo-Hoo!!! It's amazing how fast time can pass!! So, a few things that we have been up to:

I had another great birthday in September!!! I continue to be amazed at God's blessings, esp. the four that are around me!!! :-)

This little man is just growing up way to fast. I just love Karson in these little overalls. I wish I could have gotten a pic. of the little boots he had on with them!! My camera battery died after this picture.

Sweetest little girls ever!!

Guess what team was playing football Saturday?? We're trying to train our boys right!! :-) Unfortunately I can't report a happy ending to that game!
