6/23: It is finally here! The babies get to eat baby food! Yay! We are really excited to start! We decided our first veggie would be carrots! We will be doing 6 days of carrots followed by 6 days of sweet potatoes followed by squash. Orange/yellow veggies first! Emily loved carrots from the first taste! She was just smacking away! The boys were unsure until they had a few bites! They were so cute! We are just now starting them on food because everything has to be adjusted/corrected to what would be their "real" age

San Antonio

6/10 to 6/14 - We spent some time in San Antonio. Chapel Services for Keith were Saturday, June 13. Amidst the pain and sorrow we were happy to see all of our family. My father-in-law and Lynn flew in from Montana and we were overjoyed to see them! They got to meet their grandbabies! We also got to meet Keith's daughter, Patricia Ann. She is a lovely young lady and I am so glad that the Peas met their cousin! Here are pictures of our time in San Antonio!

In Memory Of Keith

6/8: My brother in law, Keith William Walter, passed away last night. It was quite unexpected! We are deeply saddened by our loss! Keep our family in prayer! The following pictures were taken in March when Keith met Austin, Matthew and Emily! We will miss you so very much!!

Keith William Walter
Keith celebrated the simple miracles of everyday life. He cherished most of all the love of family and friends.

I'm Free
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard him call;
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I found that place at the close of day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared a laugh, a kiss;
Ah yes, these things, I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much;
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seems all to brief;
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.

Celebrating 7 Months of JOY

6/4: The Peas are Seven months today! It is unbelievable! It seems to be going so FAST! The Peas are doing GREAT! They are doing more and more each and every day! I am astounded at their progress! Today, Austin rolled from his back to his belly! He was the only one that had not accomplished this task. So funny that it was today because I was on the phone with my father in law earlier and he asked me about rolling and I had reported that he had not rolled yet...later...he did it! WOW! I am so amazed at my little peas! Also, today they got to play with their new turtles. We had one turtle that I got in Hawaii and they all loved this turtle! They played and played with it so I looked for it online and found it...it is a Lamaze Turtle by Learning Curve. So, I ordered 2 turtles and they arrived last night! They are perfect because these turtles have a blue body and the old one is purple. So, the boys got the new one and Emily gets to keep the old one! We also celebrated by making hand impressions with plaster! We have been trying to do this for months but as you know....our lives are quite busy!!!
