What you do in your house is worth as much as if you did it up in heaven for our Lord God. We should accustom ourselves to think of our position and work as sacred and well-pleasing to God, not on account of the position and work, but on account of the word and faith from which the obedience and the work flow. ~ Martin Luther

It all started with this little boy.

Samuel. My nephew. My childrens' friend. My sister's son. He turned four not so long ago.

And we celebrated, boy did we, at my sisters' house. Where there was cake. And a pinata. AND little bug catchers with gummy worms.

(We interrupt this prologue for a picture of my very own, cutie pie of a niece. Slathered in dirt and chowing down, as only a child could do. Thank you.)

I thought the little bug catcher party-favors were very clever.

I'll just comment on everything here: Elizabeth sure knows how to throw a party! The kids are too cute!

You are a brave Mama. Millipeeds? I saw one scurrying up the garage wall RIGHT by the door and nearly had heart failure. Have I mentioned that I once stepped barefoot on a house centipede? I don't think I've gone down the basement barefoot since. (And thats sayin' something, because I am ALWAYS barefoot. Even when its snowy, but not outside. Barefoot out side, I mean, don't want you thinking it snows in our house. )

A creek? Why couldn't we have a creek instead of a scummy old pond.
And yours is all rocklined/filled to boot!

Snakes don't bother me to much, but in the house....

How are ya all feeling?
