The Big Snow

We got alot of snow last weekend - about 36 inches or so. Here's a picture of Mike stuck at the end of our driveway. He couldn't tell where the drive was and hit the ditch by mistake. This has been a loooooong winter!

Mike's Day of Antler Hunting

Here are a couple of pictures of the antlers that Mike picked up while antler hunting about 1 1/2 weeks ago - before the big snow that covered everything for time undetermined! He was surprised to find a fresh elk antler already, as they don't usually drop until the end of March.

Happy Valentine's Day!

God’s Valentine Gift

God’s Valentine gift of love to us
Was not a bunch of flowers;
It wasn’t candy, or a book
To while away the hours.

His gift was to become a man,
So He could freely give
His sacrificial love for us,
So you and I could live.

He gave us sweet salvation, and
Instruction, good and true--
To love our friends and enemies
And love our Savior, too.

So as we give our Valentines,
Let’s thank our Lord and King;
The reason we have love to give
Is that He gave everything.

More Remodel Pictures

Here are some more pictures of our remodel project. Sorry I haven't been very good about posting lately.
Saturday, Mike spent the day framing in the bathroom and new closet in our bedroom. The bathroom is on the left and the closet on the right. Since he doesn't have to return to work till next Friday, we're hoping to have these two drywalled, taped, mudded, textured, painted and ready for tile when Mike goes back. Ah yes, and the electrical done, of course.

This is a picture of Donn cutting out the hole for our new mud room door. Please, don't even ask me about the dust level in my house right now!

This is a view of my new kitchen add-on, taken from my current kitchen window.

And although it's hard to tell what's what - this is the entire add-on of the back of the house. First, you see the kitchen part of the add-on. Next, is the walk-in pantry. And way in the back is the laundry/utility room.

Kids Dresses Up for Church

Here are a couple of recent pictures of the kiddos ready to go to church. Hunter loves his new "preacher" clothes:) Katie is laughing so hard in the first picture that she really doesn't look like herself, but anyway...
