Newly Sponsored Child!!

Over the years we have sponsored children around the world through World Vision.  This time when we were praying about adding another child to our sponsorship, we looked into Compassion and we found a beautiful little girl in Tanzania,  Africa.  Her name is Catherine and she is 4 years old.  Here is her picture:

Fun at Nama's :)

Fun day with the 3 oldest grandkids!

I got out the old face paints and glitter paint and they had the best time ever!!!

Haylea painted up Jonathan (the WAY too wiggly and grabby brother):




Then Haylea and Sarah had fun painting my hands, my nails, and my arms up to my elbows! :D  I didn't get a picture because my phone was in my pocket and I was covered in paint & didn't want to get it all over my clothes or phone.  :)

I got out some paper for them to paint on and it kept them busy for hours!!  Here are some of their masterpieces:


 Uncle Chris made the girls some princess crowns to decorate
Here is Haylea Painting hers:
Sarah modeling the one she painted while being silly:


Jonathan was watching the birds in the back yard then knew I had my phone & wanted to see himself! Ha Ha Ha

I hope we get to do this again soon!  We all had a lot of fun!!!
