Of course, I was currious. Maybe I could help to pray for a little boy in need. So I clicked and was magically whisked away to a blog titled, "My Charming Kids" and as I read I thought, "No, this can't be true? Is there really another woman out there that is just like me?" I mean really just like me- as she puts it, "... my cloth diapering, babywearing, organic eating, acrylic painting, woods dwelling, fast talking, vaccination delaying, color obsessing, Frozen Tundra residing, nose piercing, amateur gardening, baby food making, photograph taking, faraway traveling, baby making, high school swimming, tattoo designing, medical detail memorizing, non-circumcising, lakeside living, college soccer playing, small government believing, pro-life advocating, television abandoning, extended breastfeeding, German speaking, deep thinking, former art teaching and baby cosleeping ways." Well, you know, less the German speaking, nose piercing, tattoo designing, college soccer playing, etc.
O.k. so maybe we're not exactly twins but as I read through her blog and the things she believes and practices with her family, I just felt myself shouting (inwardly of course, because Timber was napping) "AMEN SISTER!!!!!!!" Plus, she and her family love the Lord and drink RAW milk! Can I get another Amen??? Needless to say, I will now be following her blog, which seems to be quite popular, and will enjoy reading her thoughts. If you get a chance, check it out, pray for her little one and have a blessed day!

Now who wouldn't love a weekend like that? And who wouldn't love a Lord that gives so generously and freely? Thank you Jesus!!!
Here are some shots of the new gadgets!
The new play set. It's not set up all the way because we'll be moving it to another location on the property.
Our new stove. It is so nice to have an oven again. Oooh, and the oven light works on this one. I know that sounds dumb but I am thrilled to be able to look into my oven without having to open it. That was one of the greatest ideas ever to put a light into an oven!

So please, I implore you to do research for yourself and find out the truth. Look into how it's actually made. Just because it originally comes from corn does NOT make it "natural" as the site tries to sell it as.
Here are a few links to get you started, I'm sure you could find some of your own on the web:
The Double Danger of High Fructose Corn Syrup
The Murky World of High Fructose Corn Syrup
In no way am I saying that table sugar is any way healthy for you I just wanted to express that HFCS is simply not the cheap answer.

Layton and Timber
The workings of Layton's new quilt
The chicks are already getting so big. I'm embarrassed that I don't have more shots of them! I am keeping my fingers crossed that the little whitish yellow one is a pullet!
Just to name a few! :)
