pancakes and passports!!!

Sunday nights after church, our norm is to go to Pizza Hut with our good friends Natatli, Paul and their children! Many times others join us too! On rare occasions when we dont have everyone with us we go to ihop but its pretty expensive!! Last night we didnt go to ihop or Pizza hut, and we only had the younger ones with us sooooooo we went to ihome and made the best Buttermilk pancakes, bacon and eggs and coffee!!! The children went on and  on of how it was sooooo good, even better than ihop!!! I doubt we will get out of going to ihop for the future but this was a lot of fun and it was very tasty!!! Something about breakfast for dinner just makes it taste better!! What do you do on Sunday nights, any traditions??

Well this week is going to be a whirlwind for sure. Gettting school work in, the OKC State Fair is underway and that means for Bethany super busy with the Dairy Goat shows there. Its a fun time for our whole family going, wandering around, eating fair food, watching Bethany show her goats, We have been going for many years and its just something we do! Its also grocery week, so I have to get a menu ready. We have another bd coming up.....Anna!!! The last "teen" year for her! Oh and remember for anyone over 16 just gets a meal and dessert of their choosing, so that will be easy.

I am thankful that God never changes. I dont think I have ever experienced more "changes" in our life than this past year, from last Sept to this Sept. Having older children has brought us to meet many people, and has carried us to many places. New friendships have been made, relationships have begun, some were begun and ended with much prayer and direction of the Lord, some are seeking direction as to "what and where" the Lord would have them go and do. Its so easy to have "younger" children, they stay contained....haha! But I know its what we have been doing these almost 25 years. Preparing them, admonishing them, seeking to equip them to go out into the world and "live for Jesus!!!" I dont know what the Lord will do in the near future but some could be around the other side of the world by the end of the year or first of the year. I am thankful that I can, no matter where they are, what they are doing, bow before the Lord in my room, way out here in the country of Coyle USA and the never changing God hears a mothers prayer! He loves them more than I ever GO in Jesus name and love the Lord your God with all your heart, your soul, your strength, your might for His kingdom and His glory!!!


Hope you all have  a wonderful week!!!! Hey, we are getting some 80's, real Fall now!!!

I understand the changes... I have really felt them... the changes this past year. Mike/Amber moved to Orlando.. Mandi spent 6 wks in Kenya, Dakota graduated this spring and just started college. My little boys miss their older brothers! I have realized that I have to make memories with the younger ones... even though it is so different with out the older ones!

It is hard.

breakfast for supper that sounds great.

We go out on Sunday nights after church to the local pizza place. We go with a few other families.

We do not have an IHOP around but I would LOVE it!

much love,
