Too long

Sorry it has been way to long since I posted anything, but I've been a little busy making Christmas presents. 
But I took a little time to post a few pictures of what we've been doing over the Christmas season. 

This is at the walk-through nativity we went to at a church near us.  

It was a very nice night, just cold enough to be Christmasy but but not freezing and we had a lot of fun!

 Michael just loved it! 

Purple and Pike baby are also enjoying the Christmas season. They got stuffed with know fluff and got a bath and the look (in the words of Tigger ) "good as knew, if your knew wasn't to good".

Well bye,

Christmas Tree!!!

Every one of us gets a chance at cutting the tree, as long as you don't cut too much (we have to stretch it out for eight people.)
So here are the pictures.

Well bye,

P.S. A quick story.
When we were cutting down the tree a little girl and her family walked by,  the little girl, when she saw us, told her little brother, "Look there getting a tiny tree." Our family got a good laugh at that one especially considering the time it took us to find that "tiny" tree.☺

Joy To The World!

 Just a Christmas song that I like and thought I would post. 
I don't have a music video to go with it; you'll  just have to sing it yourself and imagine yourself a really good singer (like I do).

Joy to the world! the Lord is come;
Let earth receive her King;
Let every heart prepare him room,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven and nature sing,
And heaven, and heaven, and nature sing.

Joy to the world! the Savior reigns;
Let men their songs employ;
While fields and floods, rocks, hills, and plains
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat the sounding joy,
Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground;
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far as the curse is found,
Far as the curse is found,
Far as, far as, the curse is found.

He rules the world with truth and grace,
And makes the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders of His love,
And wonders, wonders, of His love.

Well bye,

Time for Christmas!!!

We went to the Christmas tree farm the day after Thanksgiving, and the hunt began.

The day was perfect for getting a Christmas tree. It was just cool enough to be Christmasy and yet still warm.

Michael was so cute carrying the saw,

But after awhile he went up to Daddy and said "You can carry this now." His way of saying I don't want it anymore.

Jamie and Sarah have been wearing matching clothes a lot lately and they are so cute, they look like twins.

It took a lot of tries to get this picture; Erin would not behave, I know that's a shocker.

And we all love the hay ride, it just wouldn't be the same without it.

It was a very fun day!!!

Well bye,

Re-posting of the Happy Thanksgiving turkey. 
He is representing all of the poor little big turkeys that got eaten today, but don't feel bad or anything.

Have a very very happy thanksgiving!!!

Well bye

This is Very Funny!

Well bye,

A Great Birthday!

Erin and I had a wonderful birthday!
We had some friends over and here are some fun pictures.

One of our very favorite birthday guests. Isn't she cute?

Ryan and his friend are always fun, it wouldn't have been a party with out them.

And we don't know who this is "she" just showed up for the food.

We got lots of help with blowing out the candles, and whoever took the picture did a really good job of getting us all at just the right moment.

One of my presents from Mommy and Daddy. I got the pens I LOVE!

And the book I really wanted!

Well bye,

So Cute!

It's been to long (sorry about that) and I needed to do a post so here is just a quick post so you can see how cute I think My sweet little brother is.

Michael was reading me a "book" and he was just so cute it warranted a blog post.

Well bye,

This is a very big day!

And it's also my birthday, just so you know.

Well and it's Erin's birthday! But we like to kid each other about it being our birthday, but really we both love sharing our birthday because it makes it twice as much fun.

I could not imagine life without my twin. Now I know that sounds kind of obvious, but it's so true.
What would I do if I could just listen to the tape I wanted to listen to and not have to trade off listening to Erin's music too? Well I don't think I would love music like I do if it had not been for Erin. I would probably be more selfish, too.

Our room would also probably be a lot messier it it were not for Erin.
She lets me know when I need to get my stuff of the floor; and just to get back at her, I let her know when she needs to get her stuff of the floor, and together the room stays fairly clean.

Some people have asked if we get along well and the answer is always, "Yes." The main reason is that if we do start to argue about something, we get each other tickled. By the end of the argument, we are laughing really hard, and we forgot what we were arguing about in the first place.

Happy Birthday Erin!
I love you!

You are all probably wondering why I did half of the words in purple and the other half in green well the answer is, I don't know I just did it for fun.

Happy Birthday Jess!

I can't believe it! Can you? I didn't tell Jessica happy birthday on my blog.
Eighteen and not even a picture!
Well, now I will try to make up for it by telling her how she is just the best eighteen year old sister ever! (Erin's my best fifteen year old sister; Emily's my best fourteen year old sister; and so on.)

I will also tell her about how sweet she is to let me talk non stop to her (even though some times I wonder if she is actually listening. Hmm... I'll have to talk to her about that one.☺)

I will also tell her about what a good horse she has been all these years. Yes I did say horse. Jessica has always loved playing horses, though it has been a while since the last time I saw her one her hands and knees with one of her younger siblings on her back holding on to she hair and telling her to "giddy~up" and "go faster." She was such a good horse. (long sigh.)

And I will also tell her how fun it is to tell her a story because she is such a good listener and will laugh at you no matter if it was funny or not.

I love you Jess. Thanks for being such a sweet older sister.
Love, Rach!

An Exciting Week

It's a long story, but we ended up having some friends stay at our house for a week while there mom was in the hospital. We had a wonderful time with sixteen kids in the house, you can have some great Frisbee games and a great birthday party with that many kids especially if you add in some more friends from next door.
Here are some pictures of last week.

This is my "E buddy" I got this name after he discovered that we both have Es in our names. It didn't matter that we also share Rs and Ls; E seamed to fit better.

We had so much fun having our table stretch in to the next room and it seems like we have such a small family now that we only need one table again.

It took us five days to get them us to living with the Pritchetts but in the end they figured out that almost everything we say at our house is meant to be a joke and that if you want to say something you have to fight to say it.

This is my little friend, we both love bunnies and we both love the color purple.

Every night was a party and most nights we stayed up just a little too late but had a lot of fun.

Mommy loved all the kids
and never hesitated to say "yes" to anything her little friends wanted to do.

Well that is it for now, we try to keep our life interesting.

A beautiful bunch of flowers for Mommy!

It has been so beautiful lately and the flowers have been so pretty that we had to pick some.

We had a little discussion about that you can't just cut the heads of the flowers,

You have to pick the hole thing,

And in the end we had a beautiful bunch of flowers for Mommy.
I love my sweet little brother!

Well bye,

All the bright and beautiful the Lord God made them all!

All things bright and beautiful, All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful, The Lord God made them all.

Each little flower that opens, Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colors, He made their tiny wings.

The cold wind in the winter, The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,− He made them every one:

The tall trees in the greenwood, The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water, We gather every day;−

He gave us eyes to see them, And lips that we might tell,
How great is God Almighty, Who has made all things well.
Well bye,
