Daughters of The King

Dear Precious Daughter,
I am your daddy in Heaven, and I love you so much!
I know you have a daddy on earth too --- I created him,
just as I created you. But I am the God of all Heaven and earth,
and I am you King and you are my daughter.
You are precious to me in every way.
You will always be my girl and I will always be
I will always love you, no matter what you do,
and I will NEVER leave you!
Your King

Brian and Dani Rae

We are so thankful for God's continual provision and love. 
"I have loved you with a love that lasts forever."
Jeremiah 31:3

The Cool Pool!

Well, its not real big or very luxurious
we do have this...
It works for cooling off and seems to be enough.
The smiles tell it all.

Ok. So... for these next few pics I just couldn't just pick a few,
There were so many cute ones of this little man.
Hard to choose...

"Caleb! Caleb? Is that you?"

"Hey Big Bro! I am missing you."
I wonder if he knows it is a sprinkler head that he
is talking in to.
Maybe he is ready for his own phone...

 "I trust in Your royal love;
My heart rejoices in Your salvation.
I will sing to You, O Lord,
For you have dealt bountifully with me."
Psalm 13:5-6

My Guys!

I love these boys!!
(excuse me... young men)
Hudson and Caleb

"Before I formed you in the womb, I knew you;
before you were born I set you apart."
Jeremiah 1:5

I am thankful they have chosen to follow their God!
I am thankful He loves them both so incredibly - MUCH!

Back in January.
Yes, way back in January.
When we had some snow.

 And fun times on the horses.

We have 3 more "official" hunters.
A friend of ours has been teaching hunter safety classes
 in Salt Lake for, like forever!
He said he would teach a class for us up here in the mountains
if we could get a class of at least 5.
We thought that would be pretty easy seeings as we had
3 that were ready to take it.
we got word out and there were 18 that graduated!
My brother hosted the class in his home.
(Thanks Grant and Shannon)
They had 12 hours of class time and...
And... a final test!
