Life continues......

{even when you don't update your blog.}


I have several excuses to offer before I give you a glimpse of the past few weeks at the Bontrager house!  
#1: We have been ohh.....so busy.  Ok, you didn't like that one?  Try.......
#2: We have had two computers crash in the last month, and, as a result,  many of our pictures from the past few months are still floating around somewhere in cyberspace.  


And now, I would like to share pictures (the few that we do have) with you:


 Hudson and I had a special time together making "Little Mexican Quiches" for Sunday evening supper.
...............................
 In the midst of all the hustle and bustle around here, my dear mother still makes time to love her "little ones" and teach them about Jesus.
.................
Denver accomplished his goal of milking the cows "by himself" before his 11th birthday.  He did a great job!
....................

 Well..........the cows are a big part of our life, so why not show you a picture of them, too?;)
........................
Rebecca is growing up so much, and I just love her sweet and willing heart.  She truly delights in helping and serving others.
...................

 And this is our incredible gift from God (more about that later.)
..............................

 Denver's birthday party was a fun evening of celebration and family time.  Our current birthday traditions:
-the birthday person's meal of choice
-a special dessert, usually cake and ice-cream
-a time of everyone sharing what we appreciate about the birthday person
-opening gifts....of course!
-a game chosen by the birthday person and played by the whole family
........................

Taylor and Denver have been "pigeon hunting" on our farm recently.  One night we were privileged to have a taste of the meat.  ::grins::  Let's just say, it was received with various degrees of enjoyment.  One family member declared it "the best meat he has ever had!".  Others were not so sure.......
