Home Can Be a Heaven on Earth

Whenever a new baby is about to arrive (I've got 6 weeks left!) , I'm reminded how happy and comfortable our life is in it's current state. I love the stage our family is in right now. We've got three cute little personalities. Cheyenne at 5, is a bundle of questions and wants to know everything about the world. She's obedient and kind, imaginative and willing to be a good example to her siblings. Delaney, at "free and a half" is so funny. She's constantly saying things that make us laugh out loud, yet is also starting to show signs that she knows how to listen and is starting to recognize the spiritual side of life. Ephraim at 2, can cause mischief, but to me is still my sweet little boy that fills my life with sunshine. I felt like I had such a hard time having them close together, and Cheyenne and Delaney were such hard toddlers, I never thought I would come out of it. I never thought I'd say, "I don't want them to grow up," but I don't want them to! Let them be little! Home can be a heaven on Earth!

Ben built the kids little chairs (and coming soon, a table). He even made 4 so our baby can have one too!
I have to include all of the pictures because their expressions are just priceless


Ephraim and his cousin Bentley (4 months younger) when we stayed with Ben's brother Sam's family over Easter. One night we had them in matching pajamas. So cute!

These girls had such a fun time finding lollipops from the Easter bunny when they planted jelly beans. They love Aunt Michelle's house. They always say, "This was the best day ever!!" whenever we leave.

They love their cousin Jaylin, who is so sweet with them.

We bought the girls bunk beds, which they were SO excited about. For some reason, before I had kids, I always imagined coming into my kids' rooms and tidying their beds while they were at school. The girls were at preschool when I snapped these photos, and my little helper was following me around. It's quite the feeling to see a dream realized, no matter how "ordinary" that dream may be!

This guy is my little buddy while the girls are at preschool on Monday and Wednesday mornings. He's such a polite little guy and loves to just play by me wherever I happen to be.

These three are great friends and Cheyenne is always coming up with things for them to do.

Sadly naps don't happen over here anymore, so when both of them fell asleep I had to document it for their dad.

Ben wanted to document his beard so here's a picture we took with the webcam on this computer. He recently shaved it, but will most likely grow it back. He loves his beard, as do the kids. I don't mind it (but it's a little too full for my liking, in this picture!).

We finally broke down and bought a minivan because we literally outgrew our Camry (with our baby on the way!). Although we seriously considered this option!

Wearing Wranglers and hanging out with Daddy in the shop!
