I think one of my gentleman hiker friends had the solution to the problem of how many clothes you can take and still fit fabric in on retreats, Ladies. Hikers like to keep thier packs light so they pack as little as possible . He says they way they do it is to only change underwear every other day. Then Jim changes with Ralph and Ralph changes with Pete, etc

 

this might work for the retreats, what do you say ladies?   it'll save a lot of room in my bag.

Oh, Marsha, Baby Lincoln is a perfect little doll. I'm so glad he's OK!

My boys saw the pictures Jacy posted last week of her kids playing in their hey fort. Of course they thought it was way cool, so today I went out and re-arranged the straw bales to make them a fort of thier own. The wind is coming straight out of the north and the temps are well below freezing, but the boys are cozy in the cave we made. I suspect that the critters will appreciate the shelter when the boys grow bored with it. I was careful to orient the door so the wind wouldn't funnel in, no matter which way it blows.

My coffee maker died this morning. Thankfully, it waited 'til it was nearly done brewing so I got my daily dose of caffiene (Well, half-dose, as the case may be. Sprout doesn't need a full cup!!) . Luckily I had a Gevalia free-bee coffee maker out in the shed, waiting to be put to use. I just had to go find it (buried amidst the un-packed boxes) and get it set up. It looks like R2D2. I'm a little afraid to go near it...

My husband found help for central sleep apnea,it's a little diff...more to do with central nervous system. He is using Kangen water,this machine is the only one that is a medical product,called Enagic,because the plates in it are solid and not mesh.

We are sure thankful he is doing so well.  He is our little miracle baby.  You are going to have a little miracle of your own.  I just got my first 3 in school, all girls, when became like you and  "sprout".  I thought I was done and had given everything away after #4 - our first boy.  He was to start school the next year.  SURPRISE!  I had gotten so involved in the farm at that time because the girls were in school and Ron was old enough to ride on the tractor with me and he liked helping in the barn with the calves.  One month after he started school, I had Doug - our baby!  (He hates to be called that and turned 40 last week!)

Sounds like your boys have a wonderful fort for playing out of the wind this winter.  I'm sure they will spend a lot of time in there and it is a lot warmer than a snow fort.

I never had the problem of caffeine withdrawl.  Neither of us ever drank coffee even though I learned how to make coffee when I was 7 or 8.  I used to make the morning pot so my father could get going in the morning.  His breakfast was several cups of coffee and 1/2 piece of cinnamon toast (toast with cinnamon sugar and butter on it).  My brother and I used get 1/2 piece each and used to argue over the third half that was left (not that we needed a reason to fight!)

Marsha-SM:

Got an update on our tiny great-grandson.  He is very lucky to be OK.  Megan's going into labor 6 weeks early was a miracle.  His heartrate started to slow down and they considered a caesarian, but she was able to push him out quickly.  They discovered that his umbilical cord was tied in a FULL KNOT and was wrapped around his neck TWICE!!!  If she had gone nearer to full term, he may have suffered brain damage.  The knot could have been pinched and the double wrap could have caused real problems.  As it is, he seems to be fine.  He is off oxygen and digesting his food as he should.  They have him on a feeding tube and have pumped his stomach a while after feeding him to see if he is digesting his food.  Everything seems fine!  My daughter says he must have been jumping rope in there!!!  Have never heard of something like this before --- a FULL KNOT!  I think he is an acrobatic swimmer!

Here is a picture of tiny Megan and tinier Lincoln. I don't think she is even 5' tall. 

Daddy Nick holding Lincoln for 1st time. How small his tiny leg is!  Wish I could hold him too, but he is so far away in Germany.  Our military hospitals take good care of them over there.

 

 

These are beautiful, Marsha.... isn't modern medicine wonderful! God surely watches over Doctors and all those who invented the super technology we now have to save babies.

Marsha--

Congratulations to your whole family on the addition of baby Lincoln.  What a precious bundle he is.  When will you get cuddle time with him?

CC--

Congratulations to you, too, .  I missed your initial announcement, so when will you be welcoming your little one?  How's Jr feeling about being a big brother?

Thanks, joyce. The baby is due in early May. Jr says that being a big brother will be fun. His older brother keeps telling him that "being a 'big' is hard work,"  to which Jr replies "So's being the 'little'!"  (Who could argue with either of them??) All three of the kids are excited. They're already discussing who's going to hold the baby first, and pointing figures at who has to change the diapers. They giggle over name suggestions:  "Harvey Walter" " Maxwell Mortimore"  " Mable Edith Cornilia"   No matter what the name, they are all in agreement that Sprout is the most wonderful baby ever to happen to anybody.  DD is concerned because she'll be grown and out of the house before the baby even starts school, and she doesn't think that will give her much time to do big sister things. I can't beging to tell you what a relief it is to have them all happy and excited over this, instead of upset at the changes it will cause.

Marsha, you have a beauiful family.  Congratulations!

CC, can't imagine life gets much better than a hay fort for a couple of little guys.  Bet they remember this forever.

CC    we found out about our 'surprise' a month before our oldest graduated from High School and our youngest was soon to start Kindergarten.  She was such a cutie we even were crazy enough to have one more so she would have a playmate.  Even though the 2 oldest kids didn't spend much time living at home with these 2 little ones they still do big brother/sister things with them. And the little ones get all excited when their big brother or sister stop by (they don't live far away)

And 'old' 52yr old DH still has energy to have as much fun with the 2 and 4 yr old as he does with the bigger kids. They are so cute that your 'surprise' quickly turns in 'it must have been meant to be' because you can imagine it any other way.
