I'm 21!

Today is my birthday!
I thought you all would like to see through the years....


2 days old...and yes, my hair stayed standing straight up for several months! lol!!

About 2 years old here...

At 4 years...I seemed to develop a "sweet" personality!!!
My parents were saved around this time.




Collin and Brandon help cook!


My brothers and I with our cousins.
I accepted Christ as my Savior on July 24, 1997!


My 11th Birthday party!

My little brother Jeremiah

One year mom made matching dresses for my sister, her and I.


VBS- my first year as a worker, Kings and Castles was the theme that year!

Little Caleb!

At 16!!
We are with Me'Me Albert.
(Me'Me is french for "grandmother", and I don't know if I spelled that right... she is actually our great-grandmother though!) All my grandparents and great grandparents are french.

The big 18!!!

My cousin Liz and I!


So today I'm 21!
I still can't believe I have "made it"!!
No special plans for today, but Sunday (tomorrow) I will have my grandparents and Justin over!
I will hopefully have a few pics from tomorrow to post!

God bless,
~Rebecca




**** My 2 best friends, their dad and youngest sister were in a car accident this morning- they are ok, but the car is totaled. Please pray for them to be comforted, and that all will be well.****

Need Seating?








Come on you two! Sure we are a family of ten, but we always have seating!!!

Apparently Caleb and Katey prefer "modern plastic" to durable leather.
My mom noticed them doing this and told me to hurry up and take a few pics!
The things children do... and I remember dong stuff like this too...like taking my nap (when I was 4 years old) in a laundry hamper...but that's another story!

LOL.

God bless,
Rebecca

Blessings


I will never fully realize how Wonderful God is,
Until I sit and count my blessings.

I had "one of those days" for several days in a row last week! But, when I remembered to stop sulking and start thanking, everything began to look so much better!

--Everyone here is doing better, some of us still have the stomach bug though. Please pray that all gets well soon!

God bless,
Rebecca

Connect 4 by 4

Justin and I had a date again at the school cafeteria last Thursday before I had to go to class, and after our meal he pulled out a game of "Connect 4 by 4". He asked Paul and Tom to play with us

Paul and Justin.

Paul won twice. :( I wanted Justin... (or me)...to win!!

This game is very complicated!!!

Contemplating their next moves.

I think long and hard too.

I'm thinking, Tom's thinking, Paul's watching the "photographer" Ben and Justin is thinking.

Tom kept "helping me" to figure out my next move, then Paul "helped" me. Tom almost won, but Paul "helped" us both. So Paul won...again.

I like how Justin is in deep thought as he watches Tom. I love the little thinking smile on his face...so handsome!

And Paul is still watching Ben (the co-photographer for me) I wonder how he won.

Anyways, it was alot of fun!!

God bless, Rebecca

Snowy Days

Katty-Kat looked outside one morning this past week and squealed with delight!

"Look! Snow!"


Then she asked if Christmas was coming and..."Can we put up the Chwistmas Twee?" (Christmas Tree)

After spending about 15 to 20 minutes finding everybody's winter things... we went to play out in the snow later on in the day!!!

My little brother...so cute!!

Kat and I,

She is such a character!!!

My job? Put back on mittens every five minutes!!!


And during the few moments I'm not fixing a glove, hat or scarf, I make snowballs!! LOL

He wanted a picture of it snowing, so I helped... :)

Smile!!

Walkin' in a Winter Wonderland

Kat wasn't too thrilled though about the sleds.

I thought they were going to build a snowman...actually, they were going to build a fort!

Kat's "snowplow" is all ready to go!

Matt and I work on the fort


We went out around noon, and my camera's lighting was set on the darkest setting possible, but the snow still is whited out! The next day I took them out to play I wore sunglasses!!

Collin's "fort"

Our fort!! LOL

Miah still hard at work

I guess Collin is tired from all the "hard work" on his fort.

I have a "shining" personality

A few days later we got a bit more snow, and Collin finished the little one's fort, and added a slope for sledding!!


They had alot of fun!

Well, our backyard now is mostly mud and slush.

A stomach bug has reared it's nasty little head over here too. Mom and I were up all night with the two youngest ones Saturday, it was a long night!! Hopefully no one else will get it! I had to cancel the visit with Justin today. :(

But he said we might get a date Thursday!! :)

I think I will go take a nap now!!

God bless, Rebecca
