I can't believe how much she looks like Nick....(and like Elisabeth!!) She is such a sweetheart.
Does she look so peaceful?
You have no idea how hard it was to get a picture of the two of them together!!! By this point I was getting desperate!!
Elisabeth finally helped me get this one - and as you can tell, Braden was not cooperating.
OK - I admit it.....I just love this picture!!!!
Braden had just gotten up from a nap and came into the livingroom where I was holding Maddie. Elisabeth got behind me to take the picture. I had to laugh, but he wasn't really happy about the fact that Grandma's lap was occupied by "baby."

Proverbs 15:16 Better is little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith.
This verse really spoke to me today. When you look at how our economy is going right now ~ businesses going under, foreclosure rates at an all time high, and on and on and on ~~ it makes you realize that having what the Lord provides for you (which may seem like little in the eyes of the world) is far better than having all the toys, gadgets, and extravagent things of the world and all the debt that goes along with those things.

But now we are at the rebuilding stage....and let me tell you....it is slow going.
Those trained in specific areas have to come in to do the electrical, the flooring, the plumbing, etc.
Think about it....it doesn't take much to destroy our homes ~~ mean words, bad attitudes, an unfaithful testimony, setting a bad example instead of a good one.
But there must be effort put forth to BUILD our homes. We need to show love, be a Godly example, be consistent and compassionate.
Make sure that each day you're BUILDING a stronger home, not doing damage to PLUCK it down.

The only thing that has changed from this angle is the doors on the right now open and close. Before they were unuseable. We will be putting the sound and recording room back there now and that will be the entrance to the room.
