Here are some of the pictures from Reformation Day last week. What a busy time we had of it getting ready! Fiona was my official pattern cutter outer person.
She took her job very seriously. She likes to do these "hands on" type things, and she also likes to feel useful. I guess being the youngest of the three middle girls, she likes to feel like she is an important part of all our projects. :)
Try to keep the boys from walking all over everything with a book and a designated spot.
Shay was upstairs working on her dress...
Into this mess Papa walks and sets some home grown apples he got from a clients tree and asks for a pie. Yes dear.. :)
At the church Shay and a friend ran a booth together and pass out candy to the kids. Here they are burning the Papal Bulls that were sent to Martin Luther.
Turn around and look at Mama with your sticky little face Joseph!
And then the camera runs out of batteries. Isn't that the way.
Well, the chocolate is all eaten and the kids are down to the lollipops and such. The wrappers were drifting around the house like autumn leaves, but they are all pretty much cleaned up now. The costumes are packed away and now we move in to real autumn here in the NW. Which means rain. But you know I like the rain, so let it come.
Thank the Lord, I saw my midwife last week and my blood pressure is still holding steady. I'm officially in the last month now, though if things go as they always have before, I will probably have about 6 more weeks.
As for the election.. I got up last night and Forrest was still up doing his math at around 12:00. He told me O Bama had won, (And Shay told him he shouldn't have, he would give me insomnia!) of course I wasn't surprised, but still, having it all official was a bit of a bummer. I read Psalm 37 and decided to take that as my motto and not allow myself to worry. Then this morning one of Shay's friends mentioned the same Psalm to her, so maybe it's God just reminding us all not to worry. Ultimately this war will not be won in the political sphere, and there are many battle fronts. We must keep on, train our children in godliness, pray and watch and tend to the sphere of business God has given each of us and let nothing distract us from it.
The Lord Bless You and Keep you...
