Those are my thankful thoughts for the past four weeks, today included... I have been thankful for many things, I just didn't sit down to write them when I thought of them :(. So there you have it, and also some of the promised pictures (although more are coming.). This post was a great way to sneak them in ;). I'm thankful for all of them, and it helps me keep my promise :)! (I'll also post some springtime pictures from the pond mentioned above :).)
Have a blessed week!

(Give thanks...)
4 to him who alone does great wonders,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
5 to him who by understanding made the heavens,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
6 to him who spread out the earth above the waters,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
7 to him who made the great lights,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
8 the sun to rule over the day,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
9 the moon and stars to rule over the night,
for his steadfast love endures forever;
~Psalm 136:4-9

Ooooh, what a fun post!!
I love the first one of Emmi, haha!
One month already? Wow! Peter is adorable:)
Oh, definitely ice cream! Haha!
I love the picture of the apple and apple cutter:)
Haha, anything and everything around here is turned into a boat--or a castle--or something else to suit the purposes of two little girls with wild imaginations...
Bethi's hair is gorgeous! (That's her, right?:))
What kind of caterpillars, do you know? We love finding little friends outside!
"Farmer Boy", the Laura Ingalls Wilder book? That's one of my favorite ones from her series :)
You're making me so hungry! First ice cream and lemonade...then carmel...then apples and brownies... Haha! :-D
Well, this was a super-long comment...I guess I need to go see about my muffins in the oven...

Thanks Joy :).
I know, That is one of my favorites :).
Actually, that picture was taken the day he turned on month old, but he'll be two months in nine days. Thanks, I think he is a bit cute myself ;).
Yes, that is Bethi. Her hair isn't as curly as it used to be. I'll have to hunt up pictures of Bethi when she was ten months old, her hair was soooooo cute! But it is still beautiful :)!
I'm not sure what this caterpillar is, although I tried to find out. I just know that it is VERY human friendly (we found this caterpillar- or at least the same kind- on our kitchen floor for the third time this week this morning!!!). We enjoy making pets of them for a few minutes, too. not usually an longer though, it's too hard to make sure they stay alive with their tiny bodies being held by two year old hands ;). (I don't think we've killed one yet, although we've had some close calls!)
Yes, that "Farmer Boy" :). It is one of my favorites out of that series, too... which is kind of funny, since it is *supposed* to be the boy book of the series :)!
Haha, stay off of my blog unless you are about to eat... that is at least the third time that you have said that ;).
I like super long comments! (Can you tell?). Don't worry, I enjoyed it!
Oh yum... what kind of muffins?

Bri said...

Would these be your salt muffins? ;)

Joy said...

"Farmer Boy" is one of my favorites, too! I love all the descriptions.

Yes, those would be my salt muffins... :) I still can't believe I would do a thing like that!! :)

Bri said...

I love the description, too :).
