Hearts and Horses....

While I was walking back to the house after milking this morning, I looked over at the horses pen and was surprised to see a heart in their bale!!
So I got the camera and snapped some pictures to share with ya'll :)

From the mouth of my (soon to be) big brother....

Big brothers are one of my most favourite things.... so you can imagine what a HUGE excitement it is for me to be getting another one!!! Henry is already such an amazing big brother, and someone that I look up to a lot. 
Little did we know that God's blessing to Megan would become such a HUGE blessing to our whole family.

Anyway, this is a comment that he left today on my post "Hey girls". It was such a HUGE encouragement to me that I thought I'd share it with you all in hopes that it will be the same for you.

Even as a guy I can relate to everything your writing. 
I didn't grow up with parents to guard my heart and lead me. So my journey has been one of many disappointments thinking that I can't just sit around waiting for my princess to make her self known to me. 
I set lines for myself and I had my convictions, and I went beyond them thinking that my standards were too high and the type of girl I was looking for did not exist.
I would like to share with you that even if you move your convictions and seek out someone on your own you will always come out of it disappointed. 
The best advice I could give you and anyone else looking for a godly mate is just to have patience. This is not a simple task I know, but God is concerned with our impatience.
You have to sit back and tell yourself that there are 6 billion plus people on this planet. One of those people out there is praying the same thing you are and one day, in God's timing he will cross your paths.
Trust me... you'll know when it's right, He'll confirm it so many times that your head will spin! As long as you keep Him as your focus.
Till that time comes, here is a song that I would come across every time I would get lonely.... 

See... what'd I tell ya. I'm soon getting myself a good big brother eh? :)

Coming soon.... Pictures and stories from the Munck's visit.

The "something exciting" that will change our families life forever is.....

SEE... I told you it was very exciting :)

Megan and Henry began courting in the middle of December. When it first happened it was so hard to comprehend it all. The first few days were filled with mixed emotions of happiness and sadness. Happiness because my little sister's dreams have come true... and sadness because of the realization that one of my best friends was going to be moving out!
The first time that Henry came to visit Meg reality really began to sink in. This was really happening.
Knowing that our life will never be the same again is hard, the way our family works and operates is all going to change. Change seems to always be a bittersweet thing, but it's not at all a bad thing!

Christmas was amazing. It was during this time that Henry (aka "Fritzy" (the nickname we gave him :)) really became a part of our family. And it was also during this time that most of the sadness drifted away, and this "Prince Charming" became more then just someone that was sweeping Megan off of her feet... he became a big brother.
It was like he had been in our family forever.
Since then it has been all been a blast! Sure I still have a twinge of sadness when I think about how Meg is soon no longer going to be a constant member of our household, but the knowledge that she is about to be one of the happiest girls alive... and the fact that I am soon to have another big brother makes up for it all :)

I'll leave you with a few pictures from Christmas eve and Christmas Day. There are not very many since our photographer was somewhat "ahem" distracted :)
I promise I'm back to blogging regularily again!

Forgive Me???

Ok, so I haven't been blogging in a while.... MAYBE if I show you this one picture that was taken yesterday you'll forgive me?? 

Life has been CRAZY. 
Besides Christmas, New Years, celebrating 4 birthdays, hockey, renovating our room and getting ready for a friends visit. We've also got an exciting new special something that has happened in our lives and changed our family forever. 
I'll be sharing about that SOON.
But for now... I've gotta leave ya hangen'. :)
As for pictures of Christmas and all the other stuff... NO WORRIES. 
I will be posting them soon!!!
