Potty Training Twins

Potty Training Twins is just another way for God to work out patience and long-suffering in parents. One twin wants to pee on the potty and is doing so quite happily. The other… well, that is a whole different story. Patience and lots of grace. New underwear, new potty chair, smarties, and a little bit of musical motivation. This is what is playing at our house today. A lovely follow up to yesterday’s worship music post.

The big kids sneak downstairs to watch tv until the little people (the two 3 year olds) are finally awake. They drag daddy out of bed and he starts coffee and makes breakfast while I try to wake up.

More Birthday Pictures

It has been so fun walking down memory lane and looking at pictures of the last two years. I cannot believe how much everyone has grown and changed. Elisha reading to Hosanna. Moses and the twins. Malachi and the twins. The best way to take a photo with 5 kids. What are you looking at?

Birthday Celebrations Part 2

And you thought that I would only post one set of pictures for the birthday festivities today! Hosanna, before she learned how to breastfeed. One of my favorite shots of Zion. One of my favorite shots of Hosanna. Hosanna’s first time to the park. Zion’s first time at the park. Where has the time gone?
