Psalm 147:15-17 

 He sends out His command to the earth;
His word runs very swiftly.

 He gives snow like wool;
He scatters the frost like ashes;

 He casts out His hail like morsels;
Who can stand before His cold?

Just for Laughs.....*2

Now this is what you call SERIOUS hunting!

No, I'm just kidding!
This is actually a fire-tower near Lake Mille Lacs.
If you look closely, you may be able to see us
down near the bottom third of the picture.

.....and Now

....well, within the last few years!

We caught this record-breaking fish in Lake Mille Lacs. (Not really!)
Some firemen-in-training came on our street - in front of our house actually - and were practicing on our neighbor's house, which is vacant. 
 We got to sit in the truck and have our picture taken. 
It was a really fun experience.
In Branson, Missouri
Christian and I playing bumper pool.
"Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep
and doesn't know where to find them..."
Here I am trying to look worried - I'm not doing a very good job, am I? 
Some of you have experienced the extent of
my theatrical abilities and know that I can NEVER be an actress!
OK, I have some explaining to do:
The reason that my face is so swollen is because I rubbed a peach - that's right, I actually rubbed a peach on my face - not exactly the smartest thing to do, as I have found, to my great discomfort.  Since that fateful day,
I have not DARED to even touch a peach to my face. :)
Isn't that a really weird-looking vehicle?
The catastrophe
(I know that the quality is not good but I just had to include this picture!)
Elijah and I baked apple pies and the result
was a lot of happy little brothers!
This isn't exactly the best picture but I thought that it was cute!

This is the African quilt that I made for my Grandma and Grandpa.

I have some pretty funny little brothers!
In this picture, we are sitting in front of the building
where the Texas Declaration of Independence was signed.


   It was my 16th birthday earlier this week, so with all of those memorable years of God's providence in mind, I decided to share some fun photos taken of me during my lifetime.  I am so thankful that the LORD has blessed me with such a WONDERFUL family to share these memories with.

Mama tried SO hard to get some cute pictures of us that day, but alas (!) I would not cooperate.  As a person who now enjoys photography, I can now fully sympathize with her. :)
Birthday number four - twelve long years ago! 
(I still remember posing for that picture!)
Don't I have a kind of nasty look on my face?
This is one of Mama's favorites.
I can promise you that my hair NEVER looks like that anymore!
The LEGO creation is a birthday "cake" made by Jeremiah - for himself on one of his own birthdays.
Notice Elijah's little "grin" :)
We were helping to plant flowers on a little plot of land at my Great Grandma's house.  This picture - and a few others like it - are some of my very favorite pictures from my childhood.
COLD lemon water :)
Two of my "little blessings"
One of my birthdays many years ago. 
Aren't we silly!?!
Another of Mama's favorites!
I suppose that I was feeling a bit "motherly" on that particular day!  :)
PLEASE click on this picture to enlarge it and notice the look
on Elijah's face - and Jeremiah's proud little attitude!
Here we are in Duluth with Grandma and Grandpa.
Ah! What a time we had getting those leaves out of my hair!
Introducing!...My new little brother, Christian Zadok Armour.
Time for school!
Our Great Grandma and Grandpa covered with kisses - and then some more!
Here I am with my walker after I had broken my leg. 
I was an "invalid" during the entire summer - quite a trial for an active little girl. 
(Did I mention that I was EXTREMELY active! ?)
I was SO excited to get my full-cast off. 
I can still remember covering my ears while the lady cut it off of my leg!
Christmas with the family - we've had a few added since then!
