I will start by sharing this great story of God's love. Sam and I try real hard to teach the boys to trust the Lord in everything. If something is not working right or we are trying to find something we always say, let's pray for Jesus to help us. This is the latest story. Jeremiah got this electronic motorcycle for his birthday this summer. Last week It stoped moving forward. I tryed to figure it out and could not. Yesterday the reverse stopped working. I was really bummed. I charged it , thinking that was the problem. Nope. I just put the motorcycle away until Jeremiah thought about it again. Not 5 minutes later and he said, Mom, will you get my motorcycle for me. So I broke the news to him and told him it was not working. He said, mom let's look at it and fix it. I told him we would pray and try to fix it. So I got the motorcycle down and we prayed together that Jesus would help us and make it work, What do you know. He showed me a fuse needed to be put back on and that made the reverse work again, then we prayed again and he showed us the other fuse to make the forward work. ( I tryed that fuse over and over last week and could not make the motorcycle work) Jeremiah was SO happy. We thanked the Lord for helping us and he took off on his motorcycle a very happy boy. Now he is pretending he is at the gas station getting a slush monkey drink. Daddy gets them all the time. :-) I love when my kids pretend. And since their tv watching is VERY limited they are forced to do a lot of pretending.
This week has been a good week so far. Kinda quiet. I went for a walk with Sue on Monday. That was nice. I need to do that more often. Tuesday we made a mad dash to Midland to find a shirt to go under the cute little dress I got for Addie for our very first family portraits. We made the mad dash because we thought we were going to do pictures Thursday. It ended up not working out. We will be taking them next week. I am a little nervous about everyone behaving themselves, including my husband. I will just pray real hard. God does honor the little things as well as big thigs and he says he will give us the desires of our heart. Lord my desire is to have good family pictures...amen. :-)
This Sunday we will be heading to Merkel to visit our members there. Last Sunday we went to Snyder. We have been so busy with the new baby and needs around here that we have not been able to go visit our members in the surrounding areas. We are going to get back into that. We will need to head to Abeline in a couple weeks then hopefully we will make it to Del Rio. Lord willing and with his help we will make our rounds SOON. Merkel is 2 and half hours away, Abeleine, 3 hrs and Del Rio 5 hours. It makes for long Sundays, but the Lord gives us strength.
I think that is about it. YEA!!!! Two posts in a week. Not bad.

I was gonna add some pictures, but I don't have the bar on top that will allow me to do that. Sorry guys. I don't think it is the problem Becki was having. Not sure what the deal is.
Last post was August...my so much has happened since then. In my last post I introduced my sweet Addeline. She is still sweet as ever. She is a perfect baby, until she sits in that car seat. Does not like that so much, but we are working on it. She will have to learn to like it. She does not have a choice. In August we made a spontanious trip to the assembly, that should not be spontanious, but it was. Since Addie came early It allowed us to go with our 1 week old daughter, I like saying that :-) This assembly made #24 straight assemblies for me. I was gonna be real disappointed if I could not go. Thank the Lord for the love He has and the little things He gives us. I am so glad we got to go. It was a blessing. Sam and I loved that God made a way for us. He opened the doors financially as well.
September has been a blur really. With Jerry's death it has kinda consumed that month. Please keep praying for Sue and Stacey. Sue is doing ok. As good as anyone can do losing their husband of 42 years. Please keep praying for Sam and I. That we can be a blessing to them all and help however needed.
October seems to be taking forever. I am so anxious for ladies retreat this year. I love my boys, but I am home all day with them. Mind you, I would not trade that for the world. BUT I have a three year old and a one year old and they both are ALL boy, so I am a little anxious to have a three day break. :-) I will sure miss my little boys and big boy, but excited to get away. Addie and I will have our first mother/daughter trip. How fun!!!!
Jeremiah......He is SO smart. His vocabulary is amazing. He loves his sister so much. Both boys do. Jeremiah is my affectionate kid. You don't have to beg for a hug and kiss. However I think we are going through terrible threes with him. He was great at two. There has been a little more discipline happening with him, but he responds good, most of the time.
Mr. Abe.... is great, but a lot of work. This last month he has finally started mellowing a teeny tiny bit. It has been work to mellow him. He is our comedian and a daddy's boy for sure, but he likes mom around. Especially at bedtime. He will have a hard time while I am at retreat, but will get through it as long as dad is close by. He does EVERYTHING his brother does. He is talking a lot more, can't always understand him, but he talks alot.
Addie is 2 and 1/2 months already and a complete joy. She is great to have around. Full of smiles and love. She is a cuddle bug. When I was pregnant I didn't care if she was a boy or girl, I actually leaned more towards having a boy, but now that she is here. Oh, I can't imagine not having her. I SO love my boys and I am so so grateful for them, but the bond you have with a girl is different. Not more, just different. She pulls on different heart strings. Life is grand and I am one happy and blessed lady with three great kids and a great husband.
Ok folks, I think that recaps my crazy busy 3 months. I think I am getting in a little better routine with three kids and hopefully you will hear from me more often.
I just reread this post and it sounds like a bunch of made up movie lines, HA!!! sorry. Hope you still enjoy it.. :-)
