This week is going to be so busy. Mom says we are having ducks installed tomorrow (I am wondering what on Earth we are going to do with ducks in the new bedroom - maybe it is decoration?). We are also having a new front door put in, bricks put on the addition and maybe even lights installed. How exciting! I am missing my old room so much and I am so nervous for the new room. That E2 is a noisy sleeper. I am not sure how it is going to work out sharing a room with her. Pray some more for me please. ((hugs)) E1

This is my first night sleeping in the same room as E2. Pray for me. I really want to be quiet so she doesn't wake up, but I rEaLLy want HER to be quiet so that I don't wake up. Not that I need anymore beauty sleep - we all know I'm gorgeous enough already - I just need to rest my brain a lot now that I have school. Rest is just as important for your brain as exercise is for your muscles. Speaking of rest, I'd better get to bed.
Love to all - E1
PS. Here are some updated pictures of the fabulous job that Mr Shepherd and his helpers are doing on the house.

I love to read - ok, I don't really "read" yet, but I sure love to sit down with a book (sometimes even those fancy books Mommy & Daddy like to read without any pictures) and just flip through the pages. There is so much to see and imagine in a book. They are fascinating! I see why my Sissy loves to look at all of them so much. They're awesome! Especially this one about underpants from Great Grandma - those are the fanciest diapers I have EVER seen! I wish my Mommy'd get me some of those! I'd show them to everyone! Hee hee!
I know....I'm selfish. I'm a toddler. What else do you expect?

My birthday party wasn't actually on my birthday this year - but 2 days before. It was a great party! We made beaded bracelets, ate cupcakes and ice cream (mine was coconut milk of course), opened presents and then went to the splash park. What a great time!! Thanks to all my friends and family for making me feel special. I am such a blessed little girl. :)
Brushing the goats -they loved it (me 2)!
African Journey. It was hot, but not as hot as Africa (thank goodness!)
Lion! Wow -he's close!
What's in here?
Giraffes. There were even some baby giraffes -so cute!
Daddy and me on the carousel - yes, Daddy is ON an animal on the carousel. :)
Have I told you that I love my Daddy? He's awesome!
Hanging out with the apes. :)
Log ride through the Australian Outback. We saw dingos, kangaroos and black swans.
Cheese - on the train ride. :)
I think she was trying to make the same sound as the train. Silly baby!

Talk about being able to visualize the new room - we now have walls! Woohoo! I can't wait. Tomorrow - they will start on the roof part (rafters) and Monday (which is my birthday if you didn't already know) they will start roofing it. This is going by much faster than we first imagined. Thank the good Lord for all the blessings we have received! ((hugs)) E1
Fun with Crayola.
What a great summer we are having! We have been swimming two times this week and I see that Mom has apple picking on the calendar for Friday. Woohoo! I have been coloring and crafting so much that Mom says I'm a little artist now. She said I should be since there are a bunch of other artists in the family. She said it is in our jeans - but I was wearing a dress at the time - and I don't care much for pants, so I'm not sure how that works. I think I paint just as well in a dress as I do my jeans. Silly Mommy. Here are some fun pictures of me and baby, I mean Toddler E. :) Love to all - E1
Running around in the buff - silly baby loves it!
I'm just glad she had a diaper on when she was sitting at my desk.

|Looking down the basement stairs (well, almost stairs)|
|Another looksie down the stairs|
|A look down the front of the house. Eventually, we will have a fancy front porch with rocking chairs and checker boards - so you feel like you're at Cracker Barrell. :) Oh wait, so that Cracker Barrell feels like home.|
|Me & Daddy - the love of my life. Too bad he's already taken. I'm sure he's a fantastic husband. |
I pray that God brings me a husband who is just as great as my Daddy.
