Update from Papa Ron

"Arrived in Bujumbura on schedule just after midnight in the midst of heavy rain and lightning. Elie and Japhet were there to meet me. Both send greetings. .
I got a good night's sleep last night and feel almost human today. It is overcast, hot and humid today.
Japhet just called a few minutes ago saying that we could not get to Mutambu today because heavy rain has made the roads very bad and bridges are washed out as well.So much for the January dry season,I guess! The members in Mutambu will try to find a way to get to Bujumbura tomorrow and I can meet with them here.
It appears that wet weather might be a problem although Mutambu is the only real isolated camp on the itinerary.this time. Pray for favourable weather and good roads."

Ron is spending some time in Burundi through the beginning of Feb. If you'd be praying for him and the local Gideon's as they work hard to spread the love of Christ!

Rockin', Rockin' Green

I recently purchased a new soap for my cloth diapers. We were dealing with major stink issues and Ben even got an ammonia burn OUCH!!
I was a part of an online scavenger hunt in November that introduced me to the Rockin' Green detergent. I just got my order of Rockin' Green soap in the mail last week. I ordered the Lavender Vanilla scent--to die for! They have Grape Soda and Cherry Almond that sound good too! Well, I've already soaked and washed my diapers....I think we're on the stink mend. Josie and Nate have been back in the diapers for a day now, no excessive stink and no ammonia burn! Praise God!
So, now to the good stuff. Go to this blog http://mcmahonlove.blogspot.com/ and enter the giveaway. I promise you won't be disappointed!

Snow Ice Cream

We have a fresh falling of snow again today!!! So the boys and I made Snow Ice Cream this afternoon! Yum-O!!

Approx. 1 gallon of fresh snow!

Mix 1 cup white, granulated sugar and 1 tbsp. vanilla extract. Add approx. 2 cups (we used more) of milk to get the consistency that you want for your ice cream.

Add sprinkles and enjoy!

I was able to get out and shovel most of the driveway this afternoon so that Daddy and Nina's parking spaces were clear when they got home. When James got home from work, he cleared out what I didn't clear and what had fallen over where I did clear. Ben got to help shovel the snow off the front steps!

All our love!

One Month Old!!!

I know I just posted 4 week, 1 day pictures of our beauty, but Josie is officially 1 month old. So here are her 1 month old pictures.

I took a couple of the boys also...they were being "elusive".....

All our love!


Ben had an argument with the rocker/glider a day ago. I personally think the rocker/glider won...what do you think?

Evie's TV Debut

Hi Friends and Family! I just got the following e-mail from Lindsey! Praise God for another way He can be glorified through Evie's precious life!

"Hi Friends and Fam (:
John Oakey came to our house last Tuesday to do a story on Evie and the organization 'Now I Lay me Down to Sleep,' and I just got word it's going to air tomorrow!
If you want to watch, it's going to be on KETV news, and should air around 6:45am. I forwarded John's email below with the information. If you are out of town it should be on their website, www.ketv.com later in the morning.
Praising God for his many blessings!,
Lindsey, John, Lyla and Evie"

Another dress!

This is another dress that Patti wore as a baby! Isn't Josie just the cutest?

Not crying!

Might think her Mama is the paparazzi--she's blocking the camera's shot ;)

This photographer is tiring! (I don't know why blogger has flipped this vertically--I can't figure out how to rotate it or the next picture!)

Stop the madness! I wonder if my daughter is going to be as sassy as me ;)

All our love!
