Presenting Caleb Lee

It is with joy and thankfulness to the Lord that we announce the birth of Caleb Lee Shelor! He was born safely and healthily at 6:02 Pm on Tuesday, August 5th, one day before his due date. He was a whopping 10 pounds 1 ounce and is 22 inches long. It is our prayer that he will be "whole hearted" for the Lord as his name means!

Woodworking this Summer: the Master Craftsman

This summer Joshua has spent a lot of time making furniture for our room. In fact we now only have one piece of furniture--a dresser that he didn't make in our room. He hopes to make an armoire to replace it...but this summer he has made us matching night stands...a corner table for our computer and office supplies...and his last is so amazing--an archery rack!

He also has made our bed frame, my cedar chest and a book shelf...the room is so pretty!!!

Gideon the Fisherman

Gideon got to go fishing last week at camp as Joshua was teaching fishing to the boys. Gideon had the best fishing rod because on the first day he caught 9 fish! Then he wound up catching 33 in all during the week...now these were small fish but really, what a little fisher man!!!




2014 Cow Day

Since I don't have a small device to take pics to put on instagram, here are our family pictures from cow day. We had wonderful Aunt Miriam with us that day!!! It's rather difficult to get three children to stay in spots long enough to get free food but it was fun! Chick-fil-A was very generous and we appreciate them...Tirzah was a fancy cow in her pink dress...that girl!!!

Two Little Girls and a Mess

This past weekend our family had friends over for a sleepover...we had 7 children five and under, it was quite fun. At one point with four adults around there was still a brief few minutes that Charlotte and Chloe were not being watched and look at what they did in those few minutes:
It was hard to be upset at them looking so cute and messy...

But it did take forever to clean up...

Time to Predict Baby #4's Arrival

As most everyone knows we are quickly approaching the arrival of baby number four! It is a boy we found out and so there will be no predicting gender but as we have done in the past I love to have baby's arrival predicted (http://joshuaandstephanie.blogspot.com/2012/07/predict-our-babys-arrival.html). I am 32 weeks right now and baby is doing just fine and measuring right on time. My due date is August 6th. In the past Gideon was born at 35 weeks. Tirzah was born at 38 weeks and Chloe was born at 36 weeks. All perfectly healthy, just early. So feel free to predict: date of arrival, time of arrival and birth weight...I'll try to do another prize this time after baby comes. My wonderful sister took some great pictures of me last week to document how big I'm getting! My favorite is the first with Joshua and I...he is such a great husband and dad!!! Join in our excitement as baby boy is coming soon!
