Fun with the Girls

My sister- in- law had to go out of town for the weekend so we got to watch their beautiful girls.
They had so much fun!

The kids stayed very busy. They built forts inside!

Here they are all trying to get their picture taken inside their fort! I was way to close but I still like the picture!

They also built forts outside! I think they were trying to hide from the dogs.

This is a picture of the constructed fort. They used a table and the dog's blankets. They also used some moving pads from when Tim worked for a moving company.

Among their favorite activity was making scary monster cupcakes.

As you can tell their hands stayed very busy as they planed and executed their designs.

They also enjoyed filling their tummies with the sweet candy.

Can you see they were all concentrating very hard.

Now you can see each Sutton child with their sweet creations!

I was very proud to have these girls by my side as we attended the Reformation service. They received pocket crosses from the pastor that we promptly made into necklaces. They even got to hammer on a cross during the service as we remember that Jesus died for our sins upon the cross!

My Amazing Sister

I had the privilage of spending the last week helping my sister after the birth of her 5th baby. I have come to the conclusion that she is an amazing woman.

My sister has five children ranging in age from 10yrs-3weeks old. She has had csections with each baby and they never keep her down long.

While I was at her house I discovered all the different things that keep her busy during the week. First and formost is caring for her family. Making sure their tummies are fed and their cloths are clean. She also is their teacher as she homeschools her children.

Then there is taking the older children to all their activities. The girls are in dance, the oldest daughter just started playing volley ball, The oldest boy playes basket ball and both of them play softball (which is now done for the season). The oldest two have also started Conformation at church and the three oldest all take piano lessons.

Aside from this her oldest daughter has been learning how to sew and she shows her creations in different 4-h shows. So my sister spends time primping her daughter before the show.

My sister loves her family very much. I can see it in all she does. I thank the Lord for her loving example. Congratulations on your newest family member. It was an honor to spend a week helping your family.
