We survived the last months!!!

Montana and Bitteroot Camp

Camp. It was a great time to be together as a family. Just a few exciting events: well, first day they all puked after the merry go round. Titus puked ever half hour the first night. Second day, Titus has strep throat. Darius too. Then on and on . . .we even realized they all had other diseases that are to embarassing to blog about, lots of tummy aches . . .anyway . .. we didn't sleep ! And, TITUS ALMOST DROWNED IN THE LAKE!!!! AHHHH!!!
Doug was amazing though. He did the camp fires and sports. I am married to the most wonderful man in the world. (Most of you already know that though). Anyway, he even likes the fact that I can spend moments writing this all to you all so you can know our little family a little. He deserves more than we could ever give him. I love you, Doug.

We are happy to see Titus is definately feeling better, Darius got McDs on his birthday, and Zayin didn't have to be taught to climb the walls.

Sollie . . .oh, Sollie

Tara, we love you! You make us all happy! Don't ever leave us and go away!!!

Were we crazy to enter the world of sleep overs?? YESSS!! This is a pic of the boys in the tent . . it was wild. I don't know if I am ready for all this. It was so fun though, Darius got lots of "weapons" and there was a war all night long with swords and guns. The boys all had fun.
I would also like to dedicate this beautiful picture to my sweet friend Emily. What would I do without you? You have been such a servant and blessing to our family and are a beautiful example of Christ. We are so blessed to have you as our pastor's wife! You do nothing but good for us all.

Happy Birthday Darius . . .6 Years Old!!!

Titus and his broken collar bone

So, right before we went to camp (of course if you know anything about our little family at all) Titus broke his collar bone. He jumped out of the tractor. Poor baby. As you can see he couldn't even eat fruit snacks by himself. (He still can't and it is 2 weeks later).



Parties, Outings, and Camping

We began this summer so excited to be planning a big family party here in Washington. All 24 grandkids, in-laws, and well . . . lots and lots of Brazilians. It was normal to have 16 people for dinner each night and beds for everyone, and on party nights 50 was a norm. We had birthday parties, outings to see pirates, shopping, shopping, camping . . .and lots of fun. What a wonderful time!! We even surprised everyone out for dinner one night with the news of another grandchild. We are due in Jan. We are thrilled . . . PRAISE GOD FROM WHOM ALL BLESSINGS FLOW!!!

odds and ends

I am so sorry for not blogging more lately . . .whoa, what a few months. We did survive and I thought I would show a few pics to let you know what we have been up to. We love our church and now you know we sit in the second row. That picture to begin the last months to say and remind you that, "yes, we are crazy." The sunny days are precious to us here. The boys have been outside constantly and Doug here is trimming a little tree in the front with his new father's day gift.
