Eddie Van's new hair cut

Eddie Van, Pearl, Lori & Noah are spending a couple days with us. You know how much fun it is for kids to run through the sprinkler and these kids love it more than most, Noah was taking a nap with PawPaw at the time. Eddie Van wanted a buzz cut, so I did that before they ran through the sprinkler.His hair is just as thick as his Uncle Jason's, I had to take a little off at the time so my clippers could cut it. Sammy and Amanda are camping out a couple nights, they have the lap top so they are going to see Eddie Van pic on here. He says he really likes it, said it is "COOL".
Pearl's birthday was last Wednesday and this is her new dress that I made her, she is 6 now and has a big girl 'long' dress.
Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them.

Well the kids are home now, I dropped Caroline off at her house and then took Lori & Noah to their other Grandparents house and they were going to take them home around 7:oo pm, so I am sure they are catching up by now. I am going to try to get things back in place in the next couple days. You know how they get when the Grands are here, they do pretty good cleaning up the toys but things get left undone, but you got to play with those Sweet little things while they are here. I took this pic of Noah this afternoon, he is sooooooo sweet.
Children's children are the crown of old men; and the glory of children are their fathers.

Lori couldn't wait for Caroline to get here today. The first thing she ask this morning was "Is this tomorrow?" I told her Caroline would be here this afternoon, she was getting tired this afternoon and I got her to take a nap by telling her Caroline would be here soon after her nap. I think Caroline was just as excited about coming to spend the night and spend time with her cousins. Noah had finally gone to sleep when I took the pictures of Caroline and Lori. Can you tell these two little girls really love one another? By the way we have three sweet little Grands spending the night, but like I said Noah was asleep when I took the pictures.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

"Noah & Lori eating popcorn"
Lori and Noah are spending a few days here, we really enjoy having them. I picked them up Wednesday afternoon and they will be here until Saturday afternoon. Sammy, Amanda, Eddie Van and Pearl are a Church camp this week. Lori has been wanting Caroline and Caitlyn a come play too. However Cheryl and Caitlyn are also at Church camp, not the same one. But Caroline was more than happy to come spend tomorrow night with her cousins and then play Saturday. We will be taking Lori and Noah back to their other Grandparents and Caroline to her house. As much as we Love for them to be here by then we will probably be needing a little rest.

This has been another one of those busy weeks. I finished Pearl's dress, Lori saw it and thought it was for her, we told her it was for Pearl's birthday and please don't tell her because it was a surprise.
And said, verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

You know I love to sew, so when I found out that Hancock's was having a sale I had to go. Sammy and Amanda ask me about making the Pearl and Lori some dresses, patterns were one of the things on sale. McCalls patterns were 99 cents, the highest price on the pattern says $15.95. I got 4 dress patterns and a bear pattern. The Glacier Fleece was also on sale reg price $8.99 a yard was $4.49 a yard, I am going to make Noah a blanket for his birthday next month. I am also making Pearl a dress for her birthday, that is next week, I cut it out this afternoon and hope to work on it tomorrow (Sammy & Amanda don't tell Pearl yet & don't tell Noah either !!). By the way I spent the total of $15.80 for all these goodies. :D

Eddie made me this pot rack awhile back, I really like using it. I made the little plastic bag dispenser this weekend, I also made one for Eddie to us down at the shelter for putting vegetables in as he picks them. Please excuse the mess in the pantry, I need to do some major organizing in there.

I made these journal covers for the Grands for Easter and I forgot to post them. They all seem to really enjoy them. There is a lot of ways to make them and change them up. One pic I saw of them, the crayons each had a pocket, but I made these to hold the box of crayons and a pad of paper.
Yesterday on my way home I had to wait for road construction, when the pilot truck came it said 'pilot truck follow me' so every one just follow along. It made me think why when that truck says 'follow me' we do it.....but when JESUS says " FOLLOW ME" we sometimes hesitate
And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.
