Our Growing Family

A family down the street from us sold their house recently & needed somewhere to stay. They all stayed with us & a great time was had by all for the past 2 weeks. Their parents joined us the first week, then worked on moving & stayed in the Northern end of the state this past week while the kids stayed here. We will have the kids (2 boys, 1 girl) here while they finish school next week also. One of their children is in Trenton's class at school. I was telling him to be sure to watch out for his "new brothers & sister". As he agreed that he'd stick up for her if ever necessary, she then replied, "Yeah, and if anyone tries to bug him, I'll punch 'em!" We all had a good laugh...especially since she is about 7 inches taller than Trenton & 50% Tongan.

Oh, and while we're on the subject of our growing family, please feel free to check out the progress on the side of the main blog page for baby updates for the next approx. 8 months. Haven't been to the doctor yet, but so long as "the stick" is right, according to calculations, baby #3 should be due about January 14th :)

Kids Say...

Sometimes my kids will pop out with the darndest things. Some just downright funny & others that I'm pretty proud of & hope will stick with them for life. The other night was one of those proud moments. A friend of ours was in our kitchen. Tyler was looking for something in the fridge. Here's how their conversation went:

Friend: Are you looking for something?
Tyler: Looking for a drink (looking at the rootbeer)
Friend: How about a beer? Ya want some beer?
Tyler: No! We don't drink beer.
Friend: Why not.
Tyler: Because that's not how we get to Jesus.
