Snowy Times

Yesterday we got another dump of snow! 
This has been quite a snowy winter for us! 
So just to give you a glimpse of what our part of the world is looking like right now 
I took a few pictures for you :) 

These are some of our hay bales for the cows.....under snow :)

This is where the chickens play in the spring/summer/fall.
 Looks like they are going to have to wait awhile to get their beaks outside :)

This is how deep it was when I was taking pictures. 

This is our pond area

This is what is looks like in summer. 
Wow it's weird to seem green!
Can't wait :)

Can you see the deck? And the rock? 
Today the rock is completely covered!

Our front door

The kids play area.
A couple of weeks ago Mikaya, Josiah and Jaden 
tried to play there.
Jaden ended up losing his boot in the snow :)

The skinny path to the garage

Our trampoline frame is under that big snow bank!
Do you see why we take the canvas off for the winter?

The back door with the puppy 
who is begging to come in!

Snow as far as the eye can see!

Sad puppy!
Actually she loves the snow....
she's just trying to get me to let her inside :)
The sad puppy face doesn't usually work with me, 
but it does with the kids!

And just cause I had the camera in my hand 
and because this boy is so cute :)

I think we all have spring fever around here but it looks like green grass is a long time away!
So for now we will make the best of it and try not to get lost in the snow banks :)

Cute at it's Finest!

I realize that I haven't give many updates on our grandchildren lately! So here's a quick one.
Andy has been doing really well and we are just thrilled how far he has come so far after his very rocky start in life! It really is a miracle and we praise God often for the gift that he is to us! Even though he is still quite tiny....he is growing up! He struggles a bit to talk but we know that there is lots going on in his mind all of the time!!! Just in the past month his vocabulary and pronunciation has really improved so I am sure it won't be long and he will be talking non-stop! He loves anything that has to do with tractors or bales :) He is a true farm boy, just like his daddy was at that age! He is a loving, polite little guy and we are so thankful for him!

Makayla is already over a year old ( I know I say it all the time....but where does time go?) She is the complete opposite of Andy...out going, adventurous, and a little bit mischievous :) She is a fun loving girl and reminds me a lot of her Auntie Jen when she was little....and now too :) It's really interesting how history repeated itself. Andy and Makayla relationship reminds me so much of Josh and Jen's when they were little (not so much anymore! Jen doesn't get Josh in trouble as much!!!) Again, we feel so blessed to have this little sweetie as our grand-daughter! What a blessing she is!

And it won't be much longer before a new little bundle will be added to our grandchildren!
Becca is due with baby #3 on May 2nd! We are excited to have another little baby around again :) 

On a completely different not.....but not really....
Last Saturday we witnessed the marriage between a lovely young couple (Rebecca's sister).
Rebecca was a bridesmaid. 
She looked so sweet in her glowing pregnant self!
Isn't she beautiful!

The cutest part was this.....
Andy and Makayla were flower girl and ring bearer.
They looked so adorable!!!!
But the best part was when Andy pulled Makayla all the way up to the front 
while she just took in the adoring stares around her! 
It was so typical of their personalities. 
Andy...the focused one. 
Makayla just wants to enjoy life at her pace!
It was the cutest thing ever!!!!

And that about does is for the "grandchildren" update :)
Thanks Megan and Rebecca for all the pictures I stole off your blog :)
