I want to start this post by asking for prayer for a young family. Some cousins of ours lost a 4 month old baby to SIDS yesterday. Please join us in praying for comfort for Sam and Jackie and their surviving three young children. Their house and hearts must surely be filled with sorrow and confusion right now. Only the Lord can come in and fill the place with peace and comfort. Having a baby born a week and a half after their precious young man makes this hit very close to home for me. We keep looking at our sweet Nora and thinking of Jackie and what she must be going through. Thank you for your added prayers!

I thought that I had more pictures for this post, but I guess I didn't. The below is a sample of what we do a lot of...look at houses that are for sale : ) The kids categorize our drives looking for houses two ways. They ask is we are going on a "look on the outside of the houses" drive or a "go inside and look" drive. Some days it's one, some days it's the other, and sometimes if there are open houses going on it's a little of both. Nothing so far. Some places to think about...but no offers out there yet.

When mom is busy taking care of the baby and can't snuggle with you after you wake up, what do you do? Snuggle with your brother or sister!
Watching the action from her spot on the kitchen counter.
Uncle Heff went to senior prom this last weekend. Isn't the corsage for his date pretty?
And isn't he dapper?
Tomorrow is his last day of high school and on Sunday--GRADUATION! 11 years of having kids at Gig Harbor High School will be coming to a close for my parents. Unless, of course, we never find a house and live with them forever. Then they'll have grandkids go there. Haha, not funny mom, I know.

So, obviously, Nora is NOT happy here. But I really wanted a picture of her super cute boots crocheted by Aunt Doe. I needed some purple shoes for this outfit and the boots were just perfect. Thank you, Aunt Doe! She was a very good girl the rest of that day, by the way. She just had an opinion she wanted to give at that moment. Hmmm, maybe it was about my outfit : )

Ah yes, we can relate on the home drive by scenario. Although we theoretically have all the time in the world to find a house. That's why we've been doing it for two years! We're praying it will go more quickly for you.

And our prayers for the family that lost their baby. I just can't imagine what they are going through. :(

Many, many prayers going up for the grieving family. No parent can hear news like that w/o being affected.

Hmmm. House-hunting posts could take your blog in a whole new direction. Is it ethical to photograph & post people's bizarre home decor?

My heart aches for that family... so hard to hear news like that. Will pray for them. Hope your house hunting is going well! At least you should have a bunch to choose from! Your kiddos are all so darling.
