While there are only 5 boy cousins, they will not be outnumbered in strength or noise! Donovan sat by his mama but was right in there when the guns popped out, the cars needed revving or girls needed chasing! We're gonna have to work on evening up that ratio! 5:9 will change to 5:10 when Daniel's daughter is born this spring!

I am forever greatful that God gave us imaginations & the ability to write it all down for others to enjoy. I am definitely one of those people who prefer books to tv or movies. I like nothing better than to sit down with a blanket surrounding me, a cup of tea or hot cocoa, & a good historical fiction book. Of corse, I generally always have to watch for kids bumping me & spilling in their enthusiasm to snuggle. Loosing yourself in the life of another is a pleasure instilled in me by my parents & various teachers. No matter what is going on in your life right now, you can always retreat to a far off place where you know the ending will always be wonderful! My favorite ones right now are Amish fiction by Beverly Lewis. I highly recommend them!
