We have had a bad case of Cabin Fever the last couple of days. Jeremiah has just wanted to play outside and it has been too cold in the morning to go out. We also didn't have a playdate this week so I think he is getting a little sick of Mom and sister! We went over to Papa and Nana's last night for some delicious grub and he rode is 4 wheeler until it died (the batteries, I mean)! He and Nana had a blast making cookies too!(Nana needs to email me the pics :D) Hopefully with the harvest party that we will be attending this weekend he will be good!
Please continue to keep us in your prayers, Alison is just not getting rid of her icky cold. She's been a bit miserable...

So Dad and Mom just got back from a weekend with Gramma, Aunt Bobbie, Aunt Tata(Tonja) and Heather (poor daddy, so much estrogen...Too little testosterone!). Anyway, Jeremiah wanted to go play on his 4 wheeler at Papa's so we called him up and invited ourselves over this morning. Dad was going to burn some leaves and do a few things around the yard. Needless to say, by the time we got there, Dad had put the "big fire", as Miah was calling it, out. I think Jeremiah was only sad for about 2 seconds and then realized that he could still ride his 4 wheeler! He kept himself entertained while we visited. Alison had a snack of apples and leaves while Miah played, though. She is so cute! It will be fun to see how she becomes her own person these next few months...
It has been brought to our attention that many are wondering if we will have more children....Never fear, we do hope to have more! We haven't decided exactly when, but I would like for Alison to be at least a year old before we start on the next one. That being said, I am going to be working hard on my Arbonne business. If you don't know what Arbonne is, then you need to email me so you can start supporting our family! If you do know what it is, please email me your orders ASAP! Actually now is a really good time to order Arbonne because we have some really great items only available during the holidays and there are some fantastic gift ideas!
This morning has been a little relaxed. Yesterday John was home sick and the kids an I had to go to Walla Walla for some doctor appointments. We spent all afternoon just hanging out. It was kinda nice to have the hubby stuck at home! This morning though, we were off to our usual day. John went to work, Jeremiah watched some cartoons and Alison tore into anything insight! Her poor little runny nose isn't slowing her down. My work is never done!

This weekend was nothing too special. Friday I took the kids over to Walla Walla and we met up with John for lunch. We did a little grocery shopping at the health food store and then I took the kids to the park for a while. Jeremiah loves Pioneer park. He likes to chase the squirrels and look for the ducks. We spent some time on the swings and had a good giggle or two! Later that night, Alison and I went over to our friend Natalie's house to have a girls night and scrapbook while the boys stayed at our house and had Dan and Cole over to watch a fight and eat pizza. Natalie and I had a good time eating a healthy dinner of Tofu and Veggie stir-fry, - my first tofu experience and let me just say, not too shabby!
Saturday John had to work in Walla Walla, again - but I love that overtime on the paycheck! The kids and I went out to Dan and Nat's to play and work a little. Their place is really looking great. They have done some really nice work.
Sunday we took the family to church and had a really good time. Pastor Carney's message was one that really hit home for me. He spoke about being in the wilderness and a passage in Exodus. He also talked about how God only gives us what we need for that day and if we try to stock up that it's gonna start to rot and stink. Basically, we need to be in God's word and prepared to hear from Him each morning. Just listening to our radio or watching a sermon during the week on tv is not going to sustain us. I really appreciated the message because I have really been thinking about how to make my walk in Christ stronger and in what areas of my life and our family we need to do a little "clean-up"(as if there are any perfect areas!).
Anyway, Jeremiah and I rapped up the day by playing a little in the front yard and having a leaf-throwing fight! It was awesome!
Please be praying for our family this fall and winter. It is a terribly time for our kids as Jeremiah is highly prone to Croup and Alison is starting to show similar signs. They are tough kids but we know that they can be healthy with prayer and faith!
Until next time.........

Okay, so I got this idea from my friend Angie (thank you Angie!) and I thought it would be nice to have a place for our family to visit and see what we have been up to. The kids are growing SO fast and it is very hard to be sure everyone gets to see the latest pics or hear the latest story. Now you can all just read about us and our so very exciting lives at your own leisure! I hope it is enjoyable for all of you and it is a little less advertised than myspace...yea! We love you all and look forward to your comments...the Oregon Thorndikes :0)
