8 months!!!!!!!!!!!

Wednesday it's been 8 months since Samuel came over and asked me to start a courtship with him! 

I am so incredibly blessed to have this wonderful fellow in my life! 
He is a huge encouragement to me, and is an amazing man of God!!!!!!

us! :)

Praise ye the Lord
I will praise the Lord with my whole heart, 
in the assembly of the upright, and in the congregation.
The works of the Lord are great, 
sought out of all them that have pleasure therein.
His work is honourable and glorious: 
and his righteousness endureth for ever.
He hath made his wonderful works to be remembered: 
the Lord is gracious and full of compassion.
He hath given meat unto them that fear him: 
he will ever be mindful of his covenant.
He hath shewed his people the power of his works, 
that he may give them the heritage of the heathen.
The works of his hands are verity and judgment; 
all his commandments are sure.
They stand fast for ever and ever, 
and are done in truth and uprightness.
He sent redemption unto his people: 
he hath commanded his covenant for ever: 
holy and reverend is his name.
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom: 
a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: 
his praise endureth for ever.
~Psalms 111~

the flowers and chocolate he gave me! :)
Just had to add this one...taken the night he came over and made it official :)

Happy Birthday Hannah!!!!!!!!!!!!

Boy did we have a party for Hannah's birthday! All five of the Schatte girls(or is it four Schatte girls and one Benner girl?), and Mercy Robinson were here to process chickens. Talk about fun!!! 

Mercy wanted a picture of her and some guts.....

Faith, Liz, Esther and Mercy all went back to the back room and killed some chickens! I wish we could have gotten more pics of that! Way to go, girls!!!!! :D

In the evening, the Hinds girls came over and we played some volleyball

Random things to do on a Sunday afternoon.....

Sunday afternoon, Samuel came over and we just hang out with my siblings and had fun! :)

Hannah wanted to get 'before' pictures of the land behind the rent house, so we all piled up in the back of the truck and drove up there. 

Trying to reproduce this picture :)

haha, three of my favorite, goofy guys! :)

Hannah got the camera and went around and took the pics she wanted....

hmmmm.....what caption should go here.....?

the pond that they're draining into the other pond....

I was playing around with focus and depth of field..... :)
