Well, today was the day the last piece of siding was put on our house! Woohoo! And the other announcement, for those of you who may not know, we are expecting baby number seven. Woohoo!!! This summer has been a whirlwind of work and activities. And we've been loving it. Since I last wrote, our house is finished with siding, as aforementioned, we planted a tree and many flowers and bushes, a big back deck was added, a patio added to the front and the upstairs bathroom completely gutted. Also, Little Benjamin Walker turned 3. I am going to hold off on putting any detailed pictures of our house on here, so as to enhance anticipation for the picture with all the details. We still have to add lights, doorbells and such and then we can take a final picture. But here are some fun pictures along the way.
Benny- happy on his birthday

Happy is the man with his power tools!

Happy is Grace, climbing and getting dirty

Happy are the boys playing t-ball

Happy are we, planting trees

Happy for a new deck!

Maybe excessively happy!?

Family is happiness

I don't think there's such a thing as excessive happiness, it just seems excessive compared to the rest of the world where there are so many people excessively UNhappy. What a blessing to have a happy family who loves each other. That's what I see in all of your pictures and it's inspiring (sometimes I forget to be an example of happiness to my kids--no wonder their grouchy a lot). Congratulations on the house (SO much work!--can't wait to see pictures) and the pregnancy!
