For Ten Years...

... he has given this princess a special invitation this time each year. 
 A beautiful invitation to come away to the Father/Daughter dance.
 And each year she anticipated this special evening; 
 dressing up for her "prince charming" - her daddy. 
I am quite sure that this will always be a special memory for them both!

Moving On While We Wait

Where are we now?  We are in a waiting time.  We have walked through the last few days trying to wrap our thoughts around the changes that are coming our way with this unexpected relocation. Right now, we don't know where or when.  That is almost as hard as the initial news that we would have to move.  
This week has been really hard in others ways ... sicknesses, injured dog, broken oven and dryer. 
But I was so happy to get my camera back yesterday!  
Today was a glorious Colorado day - highs in the 50's.  So I set myself up in the sun, and played with some fiber.  I am experimenting with needle felting a rug ... and I have NO IDEA what I am doing.  But I'm having fun doing it.  

Steve got his birthday gift up and is really going to enjoy it.  So are some other young boys in the home.  

Steve also started building the hutch for our two Angora Rabbits.

We are celebrating two birthdays tomorrow.  And since the oven is broke, we are going to enjoy bought pizza, and ice cream.  To bad -I was craving that wonderful buttermilk chocolate cake.  May be next weekend, just cuz!

Here is something that Kalyn wrote last night on face book...

"Life, everyone says that there are trials and we've had our share of heartaches and problems. But there are just some things you never see coming and this is one of those things. Ever wake up on a normal day and by the time it ends everything has changed? This was one of those days for all of us. Your prayers would be greatly appreciated in the next few weeks ahead. And no matter what happens God is in control."

We have just found out that we will need to move.  This is a real heart breaker for us.  We built this house, remodeled it, and well, Steve and I thought that we would raise our family here and grow old here.  I just never thought that I would have to leave my home.

But our Shepherd is leading us some where different now.  
And I remember two songs from my childhood that have help me though many other uncertain and painful time times before...

I will post more as I can.
We would so gratefully appreciate your prayers as we face many decisions in the coming year.

 I thought you might like to see our week of feeding the nearby Alpacas.  
 This is NOT an Alpaca though, did you know that?  This is a Llama - ears that look like a banana is the clue, and they are less friendly. 
 Each day we loaded the wagons with hay to feed the hungry little animals.  
 The Alpacas were so happy to see those wagons full of goodness!

 Hello hungry baby are so adorable.

 Opps, this one was not very patient and he got his food on his head.

 Garett gets the animals fresh water!

 NOT an Alpaca, and I know that you were not fooled.  This is a beautiful Mohair goat.
 Remember what this one is?
 Is that hair beautiful or what?
 These dogs fiercely protect their flock, but are ridiculously loving with the children.
 Karlie's 1st introduction to Alpacas was a cheek cute!

I was so happy that I could take Jace and Karlie to see these sweet animals while they were here.
I feel so blessed by the LORD that my family has had this opportunity to care for these precious animals!  
Know what Alpacas do when they are hungry and letting another Alpaca know that she is not to intrude?  Spit...
yep, pretty yucky.
I was petting a little Alpaca as it was eating when it "sneezed" -
in my face (mouthing open as I was telling it was a pretty little love it was).  Yea...
I'm still not sure if it really sneezed or if it "spit" at me;
probably the later...LOL
Lesson learned - Keep my mouth shut!
