Sweet and Lovable, a Delight to Everyone
Julieann, the eighth of the Green children, was born May 2, 2008. A delightful baby from the beginning, Julieann quickly stole the hearts of Mom, Dad, brothers and sisters. In late October 2008, our precious girl was diagnosed with infantile spasms, a rare form of epilepsy. As her illness unfolded, we began documenting her progress on this page so that friends and family would know specifically how to pray for her. We are so thankful to the Lord that her outcome so far is very good. For now, Julieann is seizure-free. We know that the seizures could return tomorrow, or in 10 years - so please continue to pray for her.

Everyone enjoyed celebrating Thomas' birthday at the fair yesterday afternoon.

 

Little kids on the little swings...

 

Big kids on the big swings.

 

Autumn Faith loved the slide! Poor Rosie spent most of the time sliding on her...

 

back.

 

Thomas' favorite ride was the bumper cars.

 

And the older Green kids talked Thomas and Nathaniel into riding the Cliff Hanger. Nathaniel looked a little nervous before the ride began.

 

But everyone held on (tightly) and enjoyed the ride...

 

Monday, October 20, 2014 - Happy 10th Birthday Thomas!

 

Today we celebrated Thomas' 10th birthday. He loves to experiment and explore, so a microscope was the perfect gift! We are very thankful the Lord has placed Thomas in our family. He is always available to help and locate things no one else can find. We pray the Lord blesses him greatly this year.

Saturday work projects included continuing demolition on the back porch, and

 

wrapping soap and restocking the shelves in preparation for Pioneer Days Saturday, November 22nd in Lincolnton, Ga.

Having teenagers in the house is always an adventure. When Kenny and I returned home from Costco, I was restocking the storeroom shelves with flour, nuts, canned goods, and chocolate chips. Carolyn thought it was cute to snap a picture of Mama helping herself to a few chocolate chips while working...

Julieann led me through the cow pasture today to show me what the boys have been building...

 

a treehouse in a cluster of sweet-gum trees.

 

Thomas was the first one up the ladder,

 

and then the other Green children followed.

 

Anna Rose decided the ground was a safer spot to admire the boys' handiwork.

Baskets of apples received from this past weekend,

 

plus a rainy day this afternoon,

 

equals some delicious, homemade apple jelly!

 

Monday, October 13, 2014 - HAPPY 3RD BIRTHDAY AUTUMN FAITH!!!

 

Our baby girl turned 3 years old today. The crib that has been standing for 21 years and slept all 10 of our babies was finally disassembled and transported to the attic. A new "big girl" bed now stands in its place. Oh, how the years have gone by. We are very thankful the Lord has blessed our family with our sweet, Autumn Faith. She is a delightful child who is very serious, yet radiates with joy throughout the days. We pray the Lord will bless her richly in the years ahead...

The Green family spent an enjoyable Saturday at MULE DAYS. While listening to her siblings play their instruments in front of the old schoolhouse, Autumn Faith posed prettily by a tree.

 

At lunchtime, the band moved to the main stage where they played for an hour,

 

took a break and visited with friends,

 

then played during a jam session at the old cabin. Today we had a full day of old-fashioned music!

Charles and Caitlin stopped by for a visit this morning, and I think Charles enjoyed the rides on the back of all his uncles' old John Deere truck.

Yesterday we celebrated Benjamin's 13th birthday. We are very proud of the young man that Benjamin has become! He is always willing to help, eager to assist the little ones, and ready to repair or build anything needed. We continue to pray the Lord will bless him this year.

books,

 

and sweet, sisterly games of "Ring-around-the Rosie."

Another old-farmhouse construction project: rebuilding the backporch.

 

Daddy, Joseph, and Benjamin have done a wonderful job instructing Thomas and Nathaniel.

 

And while Carolyn and Caitlin were wrapping soap for the Fall/Winter season,

 

the three "Aunts" happily kept Charles company.

I believe the girls were having a little too much fun trying on hats at the Grand-Opening of Gander Mountain.

 

On the other hand, the Green boys took the job of selecting a hat rather seriously.

 

And the little girls were content to be spectators.

This afternoon, some of the Green children picked wildflowers in the horse pasture to brighten up our kitchen. I believe Rosie was still lost in wildflower "dreamland".

We celebrated the first day of Fall with a warm, chocolate, oatmeal pie.

 

And it was thoroughly enjoyed by all...

While some of the Green children were in the canoe with Daddy after dinner,

 

the rest of the family was visiting and playing with Charles.

Joseph took charge of making blondies for tonight's after dinner dessert.

 

A few "extra" dark chocolate chips are always thrown into the batter.

 

And the evidence is clear who volunteered to fetch the chocolate chips from the pantry :)

The girls enjoyed a game of Putt-Putt golf this morning before our afternoon shopping.

 

I believe we spent more time looking for lost balls and balls that became stuck in the putting green obstacle course.

 

For some reason, Autumn Faith thought her ball should belong in the alligator's mouth.

Daddy, Mommy, and all the Green girls are enjoying Myrtle Beach during another one of Daddy's work conferences.

 

Fuddrucker's hamburgers are a Myrtle Beach tradition for our family.

 

The weather was a little cooler today, so we took advantage of the indoor pool this evening. The girls are now exhausted and tucked away in bed, looking forward to a little shopping tomorrow while Daddy is at the conference.

Today Grace made homemade Baklava for our fellowship meal after church tomorrow.

 

Sliced with a drizzle of honey on top.

 

And it's that time of year for restocking our goat milk soap shelves. Today Autumn Faith helped Carolyn wrap one of our soothing fall soaps with vanilla.

Back in Savannah for another conference...

 

Monday, September 8, 2014 - HAPPY 18TH BIRTHDAY CAROLYN!

 

Today we celebrated Carolyn's 18th birthday! We are very thankful that the Lord has blessed us with such a fine, young, Christian woman who continues to nurture and care for others with a servant's heart. We love you Carolyn, and pray the Lord will continue to bless you richly this year...
