Big Bucks....

Michael has always wanted a son to join him in his love of hunting and fishing. Now my husband loves his little girls wholeheartedly but fears that they will be to girly to hunt or fish. By looking at this picture and hearing little Bella say Big Buck clear as day everytime she sees a deer, I don;t think Michael has to worry about Bella being too "girly". She also loves venison jerky, banging her little fists on the fridge while chanting "more, more". Maddie is always in a dress and putting on an endless amount of jewels, hair clips, and anything pink she can find, but she still says that she wants to be a "Big Buck Hunter" when she grows up. I can easily see at least one of our little "girly girls" joining their daddy in the woods hunting for Big Bucks.

The girls and I went for a little country drive after playing in the snow today and I took along the camera and captured this old barn surrounded with the snow covered trees. Just thought I'd share with all:)

God is amazing

This is what our street looked like this morning, it speaks of God's Grace with the purity and serenity within it. It's things like this that make it worth living in Michigan:)God Bless everyone and have a great day!!

Help has arrived

For the last 3 weeks or so my girls have been assigned with chores. They each have three like feeding the cat and putting away silverware, simple things but helpful. They get $1.25 every week, teaching them to earn money for what they want. Now that the girls are used to doing their chores Madison (My three year old) has been helping out with other things on her own. The other day I had a pile of clean towels on the dining room floor just waiting to be folded and there goes Maddie all on her own, folding the towels. She folded every one of them all by herself (of course she earned a reward magnet) but she was being thoughtful and helpful, two things that I have been working really hard at instilling in my girls. So I am very excited and pleased at the fruits of my labor, and maybe even bragging a little but hey aren't we all entitled to brag about our children a little?
