Going through pictures, trying to clean up the laptop and make some room, I came across this one and thought I'd share it. Don't we just look so happy to be together? :D
I LOVE my friends! And I'm so thankful God put each one of them in my life!
(By the way... Thanks Lil for the pic! Love & miss you!)

Everybody lives on a street in a city
Or a village or a town for what it's worth.
And they're all inside a country which is part of a continent
That sits upon a planet known as Earth.
And the Earth is a ball full of oceans and some mountains
Which is out there spinning silently in space.
And living on that Earth are the plants and the animals
And also the entire human race.

It's a great big universe
And we're all really puny
We're just tiny little specks
About the size of Mickey Rooney.
It's big and black and inky
And we are small and dinky
It's a big universe and we're not.

And we're part of a vast interplanetary system
Stretching seven hundred billion miles long.
With nine planets and a sun; we think the Earth's the only one
That has life on it, although we could be wrong.
Across the interstellar voids are a billion asteroids
Including meteors and Halley's Comet too.
And there's over fifty moons floating out there like balloons
In a panoramic trillion-mile view.

And still it's all a speck amid a hundred billion stars
In a galaxy we call the Milky Way.
It's sixty thousand trillion miles from one end to the other
And still that's just a fraction of the way.
'Cause there's a hundred billion galaxies that stretch across the sky
Filled with constellations, planets, moons and stars.
And still the universe extends to a place that never ends
Which is maybe just inside a little jar!

It's a great big universe
And we're all really puny
We're just tiny little specks
About the size of Mickey Rooney.
Though only some know how it got here*
We're an important part here
It's a big universe and it's ours!

*Changed for my own stand.
This is a kids song, but how can someone hear, read, or write all that, and not think that there has to be a God that made everything?

Really into it there Jack

Oh, boy down!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY PARKER!!! (Day after. But what can I say, I had to get the pictures before I could post them!)

A very happy Birthday boy, ready to open gifts! ("If only they would get these pictures taken so I could get on with it.")



Oh! Dad was watching anyways... in his have dream world that he was in!
(He's hurting from all the snow he's been moving of late!) ((And the ice wasn't too kind to him the other day.))

OK. Now we're watching, now that he's opened some and we can see what they are.

Toy Story race track!

He's such a good boy, he even cleaned up after himself when he was done! :)

Good thank you hugger too!

Playing Parker's game. :)

Now that is one very HAPPY 6 year old! :D

Now that's the Nothern MI I've grown to know and love! :D

Something happened to the slide, I don't really know where it went?

And the bird feeder.

Anyone want to eat out side? :D

Hope you all are enjoying the snow! I think it's here to stay a while!
Love it, or learn how to live with it!
By the way, as to the last post, 2 comments are good too. :)

Just Because. Don't Ask Why

Hey! This is post 200!
Anyone care to try and get 200 comments??? =]
If so, here is one rule, you can not post a comment two times in a row, someone else has to comment first or you have to wait at least 24 hours. :)
Just to throw out some ideas of what to comment on- 1.What's God been teaching you in your life of late?
2.How long have you known me? (If you don't know me, how long have you known of my blog.)
3.What is something you remember doing that was funny that you wouldn't mind telling. With or without me.
4.What was the first post you saw on here and what did you think of it?
5.Um... I've run out of ideas, you might have to come up with your own. :)
Thanks all!

Sandy, and Cyndy. It was very nice that they could both come up and spend the time with us.

Waiting to sit down to eat.

Yes, Parker did eat it right off the leg! It grossed Jessica out though! =]

Digging in, and boy did he!

Mounding on the food.

Smiles before the full pain. :)

Can you tell we ate anything.

Hardly can tell we ate anything?

Clean up

Oh my! Pies!

(That's not all of them.)

Well, I'm full! I don't know about any of you, but I hope you are.
If not of food, but of love, and thankfulness for everything God has given you, or not given you. :)
