I was in stitches... Precious moments!!

Personally I can't really deal with selfies:):)
Find the whole idea rather odd...

Only really liked taking them when we had our international selfie day each month after our first Uganda trip... 

Hilarious selfies from around the world:):). A way to stay connected to fellow missiontrips team members:)

But a few nights ago this happened...

Honestly, that hair really does look like it could be Jo's:)  We were cracking up:)  

Our week has been crazy... I think that is life with 7 kids....
And it probably won't slow down anytime soon... 

Last week I spent Sunday passing a LARGE kidney stone... ouch!! That was really fun!  NOT!  Then I cooked a batch of chili and headed over to the chili cookoff:)  Nothing like tying all of that into a morning while getting all the littles ready for church!

And all week I have felt like  I have another one on the move... so off to the kidney doctor I will go:)  

Greg and I have been doing loads and loads of paperwork... the mountain is almost complete... Thank you Jesus for that!  It was a huge job, but really not too bad when you look back at what you got completed!  Thankful to have it behind us!:)

We have been amazed by God's goodness this week... We had precious friends get scammed by a birth mom whose baby was to be due any day now... She ended up delivering that baby a few weeks ago and didn't place it with either of the 2 families that she had chosen and received money from... Big Bummer!

Well, miraculously, our friends flew home from out of state yesterday with 2 kids in tow, a 1 year old and a 6 week old... siblings... Yay for God moving mountains to get his children in a forever family!  

They are precious and we are so thankful and excited for our friends who just grew by 2 kids in a matter of a few days... What a sweet and wild surprise:)  I love how God can just knock our socks off especially when we are sort of in the dark and not at all understanding His will or plan and then BOOM He goes and does above or beyond anything we could have imagined or thought possible!  He is a God of second chances that is for sure!  

Now to Him who is able to do immeasureably more than all we can ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.   To Him be the glory in the church throughout all generations forever and ever )  Ephesians 3:20-21
