Getting Married for Pretend ; )

Matthew and Hannah came out of the room last week and shared that they were getting married. They got all dressed up for it. I thought they looked so cute, I had to take some pictures.



You two look so cute! It’s fun being brother and sister.

Holding little hands. One day you two will be off to get married to a young woman and a young man. I can already see how handsome you will be Matthew and how sweet looking you will be Hannah.  : )

  1. Thank you for your updates. I have been following your blog for a while now and I look forward to being updated on your family, interests, your walk with the Lord, as well as your ups and downs (we all have them). You are a very blessed family, and from your stories and pictures are very loving toward each other as well as others. May God bless you in your daily walk and thanks for being a witness for Him.

    • Thank you so much for your kind comment Claudia! You made my day! It means so much to me… I treasure anything anyone shares in kindness with me. We’re trying our best, we stumble along the way… it doesn’t always show in the blog but we are in a much better place than we were some years ago in raising the kids and in our marriage. It’s just now starting to feel stable and safe and peaceful through the screaming toddlers. : )

  2. I always wished I’d had a brother! Your girls are blessed!
    When I was 9 and my sister was 6 and my mom was 33 she had a surprise baby- I wanted a boy so bad! But it was another girl! LOL! Her sister had 4 boys, my mom had 3 girls and my Dad was an only child. I think that’s why I wanted a big family.

    • I wish I had had a brother too. I was much too much of a tomboy, I always played with the neighbor boys until about 5th or 6th grade. : ) It’s neat to hear people’s story about how they came to wanting a big family. I had already had two daughters when Matthew and I married and I didn’t want anymore. I had a real vision from God of a little boy in our backyard of the house we were looking to buy and bought in 2005. He was 2 1/2 years old. I dropped to my knees and wept. We had Elisabeth 9 months later and then I read a book by John R. Rice called “The Home”. His chapter against birth control and the blessings of large families won me over. My husband had just read the book and it was on his heart too to have a large family. I would have never considered it but when the Lord puts something on your heart, oftentimes He puts such emotion there too that He wins you over. : )

    • That’s how a young girl should be. She should have such a good relationship with her father that she doesn’t ever want to part from him or doesn’t see that anyone could fill that spot. I’m so glad you had and still have a good relationship with your father, it’s so important!
