This picture is of Noah holding the boy (I think...)
We brought them both inside and put them in this big plastic tub with a heat lamp over them.

This video is of Noah disk sledding (or being pulled behing the golf cart on a disk sled). It looks a lot faster than it actually was. Trust me...this is perfectly safe....and loads of fun! (The next is of Katelynn and the last is of Elaina.)

We love you Jordan and we don't know what we would do without you. You have blessed our life so very much. You are the best big sister and the most devoted daughter. Where would we be without you? Happy 21st Birthday Jordan, with all our love...

We snapped these picture of our twin cousins doing dishes! We babysit them Monday through Friday and they are like our little sisters. This moment was too cute to not get a picture of. They took their job very seriously. They didn't even know we took these pictures.
The picture on the hay bales with Ethan and Noah was while we were fixing up our baby goat pens. Katelynn is on the left, Elaina is on the right. The four of them are quite a group!

A couple years ago, Dad and our grandparents had bought us a gas powered log splitter. It works great (when it wants to). Tuesday was no exception. Dad had started it for us before he went to town and said that we should be fine until it ran out of gas. So we set to work. We were able to get about 1/3 of our pile done before it quit on us. After a few attempts to get it started we decided to wait for another day.
Today the temperature reached 49 degrees. It was wonderful to feel the warmth of the sun again. Pop said that he would come and take a look at our log splitter and after a little work was able to get it started. Gram had brought up her electric chainsaw so she was able to cut some of the pieces shorter so that they would fit on the splitter.
Even Katelynn (one of the twins) helped. We had her picking up the small pieces to use for starters. She did try to help Ethan carry some of the bigger pieces to Savannah, who was stacking. Elaina (the other twin) joined us later after she woke up from a 3 hour nap. She only lasted for a little while though before she said she was cold so I took her and her sister back inside.
The pile of logs was soon down to two logs, which Ethan wanted to keep as targets for when he throws his knife. We thank the Lord for blessing us with beautiful weather, time spent working together and two nice big stacks of firewood.
P.S. Dad surprised us today by bringing home a new, much needed, gas powered chainsaw! Praise the Lord!

My aunt gave this to me the day after Christmas, along with the chair. She had brought them both down from New York years ago, but no longer had a use for them, so she was wondering if anyone was interested in taking them. We went to look at them and I fell in love with the set! It's absolutely beautiful, and just the right size!
Jordan also salvaged this armoire from a shed we were cleaning out this fall. She fixed it up and it too looks wonderful in our room!
