Rest in peace Kim.  We will always remember you and your smile.  The Lord will watch over your husband and children.  This morning was sunny and beautiful here and I know it's because you woke up in Heaven this morning.....God bless.

Jacob and his rescued feline, Monkey. 
(who is also the mother of the 5 kittens we have now inherited)

Sassy little girl!

Shirts and shoes, Madi.
You've been eaten by enough ants!

Jacob named him Garfield.  Lol.

Little white kitty :)

Dog vs Cat, who will win?
I've seen the cat in action!

Just some random pics from around the house!

Happy day!



Here he is (I think, cause there's ANOTHER one in the pond too)

He hisses and snaps...and is now living elsewhere!
Sorry for the hook, buddy, but you ATE my duck!



VBS with a friend!

Today is Emma's last day at VBS with her friend Katie Ann!  Thanks to the Shaver family for inviting her along for the week...the girls had a blast!
