Well, our little Felicity has reached two months since my last post. She is such a happy baby most of the time. Felicity is very alert and very active, well, as active as a two month old can be. She watches every move her brother and sisters make. She tries so hard to get to her toys when we put them out in front of her, to the point where she throws a fit every time we get them out.We've decided no more toy time for a while. We'll let her play with them again when her little arms and hands can do what she wants them too! She is so much fun to have around, we love her to the moon and back!
We made an appointment to have family portraits made. We are needing to update out prayer cards, brochures and things. Plus we needed a picture with the whole gang all together! I found a photographer that was willing to give the copyright to us so we can use them as we need. The only thing he failed to mention is that he is not a family photographer, he is a sports photographer. Therefor, there was little effort in getting the kids to participate! He actually never said a word to any of us as to where to sit, stand, tilt our head... nothing. Anyhow, we did all get in the photo and that is more than what we had to begin with!
Since being in Kansas, we have been able to spend more time with Sam's grandparents. There is just something special about being around your grandma and grandpa! I have only one living grandpa, whom I don't get to see very often. I miss all of my grandparents so much, wish I could just spend one more day with each of them!Anyhow, I am excited to have this picture of my kids with their great grandparents!
With Veteran's Day tomorrow, I wanted to get a picture of grandpa Turk with his medals. He was shot three times in World War Two. Grandpa received 2 purple hearts and has a lot of stories to tell, only by the grace of God is he alive today to tell them. I am so thankful for our soldiers! This is one proud Marine!
He is not only a war veteran, he is also a veteran pastor. Grandpa Turk has started many Independent Baptist Churches and has taken a strong stand on the word of God. And still, at the age of 92, faithfully attends services in his church. We love you grandpa and are thankful for your service in the U.S. Marines and for the Lord!
