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.

Today we celebrated Charles' 3rd birthday (which was actually February 20th). Of course the theme of the party was...

 

SRF

DINOSAURS! Thank you Carolyn for making the chocolate cake with fudge icing.

 

SRF

There were lots of little dinosaurs running around Daniel and Caitlin's house :)

 

SRF

Charles enjoyed opening all his birthday gifts and seemed very appreciative.

 

SRF

Then it was time to try out the new birthday swing set. All the aunts had fun as well!

Caitlin snapped this sweet photo of "Guy-talk time".

Annual trip to the Columbia Zoo!

One lorikeet was particularly fond of Joseph's hat :)

Autumn Faith always requests a Carousel ride,

The past week included sweet Valentine nap snuggles,

 

SRF

Chemistry class with worksheet questions

and younger siblings that knew the answers and had to keep quiet...

 

SRF

Benjamin made a sail for his canoe,

 

SRF

launched his sailboat,

 

SRF

and then...a gust of wind came by...

 

SRF

and Benjamin went down....

 

SRF

but was soon rescued by his sister :)

Yesterday evening was an enjoyable time for a tractor ride with the whole family including Charles and James. The older boys were kind enough to find Mama a chair to ride in comfort...

 

SRF

but then Daddy hit a bump, Mama's chair broke, and everyone got a good laugh :)

Since Daniel and Caitlin are probably seeing lots of dolphins on their Bahamas cruise, we had a llittle fun today with the boys' snack time: dolphin banana eating a goldfish in a sea of blueberries. The boys were delighted!

 

SRF

And the weather was perfect today for a tractor ride through the pastures...

Benjamin has been working hard in the workshop on his X-wing fighter plane! And only months ago this plane was an old cedar tree in our woods...

 

SRF

Charles is very thankful for Benjamin's workmanship :)

 

SRF

We are excited about Charles and James staying at our house for about a week! Today (being only the 2nd day of their stay) I found this sticker on James. Is someone trying to get rid of this sweet little snugglebug?

 

SRF

And the kids took this shot of a wonderful evening at Shakerock Farm...
