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.

Thomas found just the right spot to enjoy his lunch.

 

And Rosie made sure Dutchess didn't steal a bite.

The Green children have been enjoying the beautiful weather,

 

and picking lots of daffodil bouquets,

 

especially for the funeral service of a dead cardinal discovered in the horse pasture.

 

"Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father."

Thursday, February 20, 2014 - Happy Birthday Charles Daniel Green !!!

 

The Lord has blessed Daniel and Caitlin with a beautiful, healthy, baby boy! Charles Daniel was born at 9:55 this morning weighing 6lbs.15oz. and measuring 19 1/2 inches long.

 

Sweet little baby eyes and smile.

 

Proud grandparents!

 

Aunt Grace.

 

After visiting baby Charles at the hospital, the Green family celebrated with a frozen yogurt treat!

We were very thankful to visit the "Washateria" to help catch up on our laundry.

 

Carolyn and Benjamin enjoyed having lots of folding room!

 

Thankfully we received power this evening and can wash clothes again in the comfort of our own home...

It's been an eventful week with the ice storm and power outage. We lost power Wednesday morning, just after Carolyn put a load of laundry into the washing machine. Joseph helped her hang some clotheslines to dry our clothes.

 

Benjamin's sled came in handy once again for hauling hay to the horses and goats.

 

Candlelight dinners have made dinner time more enjoyable.

 

Because our only source of heat is from the family room, everyone makes their bedroll at night and stores blankets and pillows in the soap hallway.

 

We have also tried to keep our school schedule which makes the day run a little smoother with the little ones knowing what to expect.

 

Once again, the only room warm enough to congregate is the family room with the fireplace insert.

 

My little "Pookie" is such a sweet heart during school lessons. She loves to look at Anna Rose's math book,

 

and play at my feet with the unifix cubes Daniel once played with as a boy.

 

And Thomas brought me this heart made out of ice on Valentine's Day.

 

We still do not have any power, and because there is a power pole broken in two at the end of our road, we have a feeling it may be a little while before we have electricity again. Thankfully our generator allows us to use our fireplace insert and gas range, so we are all warm, and have plenty of food and water. We have had a few unexpected inconveniences with the old wiring in our house and losing our dishwasher and water heater, but hopefully our lives will resume as normal again soon. Who knows, we may even miss the excitement and adventure...

Working hard giving hay to the animals before the upcoming ice storm doesn't mean you can't take a little leisure time...

 

enjoying each other's company on a hay ride.

The weather was finally warm enough for a picnic!

No one is too small to help in the Green family 'firewood brigade". As the saying goes, "Many hands make light work."

 

After dinner, the boys are supposed to clean the kitchen and wash dishes. I just happened to catch Benjamin shooting his blow dart gun at...

 

K-cups on Nathaniel's head. I couldn't hlep but chuckle and walk away...
