I just had to post this. My husband some years ago prayed that we would have 8 children. We felt like this was God’s Spirit leading him to pray this. We’ve always believed we’d have 8 children after we had the first five. Well, it’s been a couple of years now since the twins have been born, one miscarriage soon after they were born and we’ve been pretty content. Still waiting, not much in the way of planning for the perfect moment to come together in hopes for another baby… no supplements or anything else to try to conceive. But, our time is closing in if it isn’t done already. With the thought of possibly taking down the cribs for the twins in a while, my heart somehow panicked. I want another baby! One more pregnancy. One more (or two – I love twins), baby to hold, to nurse, to love, to watch while he or she is sleeping. So, with prayer and more of a dedicated focus on trying to conceive, taking some maca and red clover and more prayer, maybe we’ll have another baby. Just maybe. Please Lord.
Here, dad and Hannah were going through the basis they picked just yesterday before the frost. The house was so fragrant for hours.
Little girls doing some home school in the living room. Daddy was fixing the kitchen table. After 8 years of kids hanging and swinging from the base board that goes across underneath, it came out of the beam.
Beautiful Fall weather. Our favorite (and shortest) time of year.
Turkeys on the beach!
Here are some turkeys that we see all over the area here. This flock was walking in our backyard the other day.
Hannah and Elisabeth spotted this quail stuck in a fence of ours. Of course they had to bring him in to show us first before we let him go. He was surprisingly really calm. There’s a quail family that live in some bushes just up our driveway. They came out this last Spring with lots of new, little babies with them. It’s been fun watching them all over our yard this year.
Mommy’s new Edwardian apron. I just got finished making this today. Here is where you can get the pattern if interested:
Little Hannah likes wearing aprons as I do.
Oh, I love this picture of you, Hannah. I wish I had some more of you to add here. : )
I haven’t done pictures of Elisabeth exclusively since we lived in Iowa. I got some nice shots of her here. Ah, you still have your cute little look you had when you were a baby. : )
Pretty girl with a new skirt Momma made!
Pretty girl. I like this picture. You look so grown up!
Beautiful picture of your pretty face.
Cute, little Miriam is now 3 years old. Here she is giving little kisses to Anna while Tabitha is trying to make something of her hair.

You look like you are filled with delight here Miriam. : )
