New Things

"Therefore, if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."Hope this post finds every one well today. I was thinking about new things the other day, so thought I would share some of the "new things" happening around our home.


 A new year for a new garden. Sure is fun to "work" in the garden and look forward to all the new things God will give us this year.  (this photo was taken on March 31st...We live in the FAR NORTH...we have never tilled this early!)

 Our little princess got herself a new swing. We were looking at getting it new, but someone was selling one for about half the price of new. She does like it. We are working on putting in "new straps.

New pictures of Victoria. Her face has changed so much, and she seems to be doing well. We go back to the neurosurgeon next week for a check up.

Don't you just wonder what babies think?


We recently lost our winter dog (we dog sit for snowbirds), so here is our new dog. The girls somehow got playing fetch...here Esther is teaching Joanna how to fetch a spoon for her.

With Benjamin buying our car, we had to look for another one, and this is what we found. A 97 Park Avenue with 116,000 miles. Seems to be a nice car so far, and it gets about the same gas mileage as our little 4 cylinder. 

I don't think I have had a car with this many bells and whistles, even has heated seats. Its only something useful for this time on earth , so I don't "treasure" it.


Have you ever had your wife make something for you and then ask you what you think was the "new" ingredient?   My reaction....you put what in this?????? Now of course, we were not told of this secret recipe until after we had eaten it.


 Esther seemed to not mind it at all...I think this must be her new hairdo.

 Here it is, our wonderful breakfast pastry, and the secret ingredient is.....now you must understand, I have full permission to disclose this family secret, and we will be putting them on the market soon. So, anyone guessed yet?  If not, the letters are MM.

Finally, we are looking forward to the new heavens and the new earth that God will make. This first one is fantastic, so can't imagine what the next will be like. What a blessed hope we have. Hope you are having a peaceful day.

Oh by the way, the new ingredient was "mother's milk" :)))))  Now, where's my blankie..googoo gaga!

(By the way, the top secret "MM" was just in the pastry...not the frosting...though I'm sure it would have worked!  : )  )


  1. No fair!!!! That swing (and the whole set that matches it!) is EXACTLY the one I wanted to get for Kaleigh!!!!! But people who think farther down the road talked me into getting more gender neutral stuff since we may have boys someday, and apparently they CAN'T go in pink swings...lol. So Victoria, you are a lucky girl!!! :)

    Okay, not gonna lie....your secret ingredient is kinda grossing me out!!!! :| Sorry...no offense meant, it's just not something I'd want to cook with. LOL.

  2. Amen Rachel, I can't agree with you more. Please talk your your auntie. :))

  3. Ha ha ha! I've pulled that one on my family also. :) It's the "PERFECT" milk, you know!!!!!

  4. Hey Rachel...though this was the swing I really liked, I probably would have gone with the more neutral colors...if this had not showed up in the "Trading Post"...for the right price. It had been used for only one child for only 2 months...so it is like new. The colors are the added bonus! :)

  5. Joking about it was one thing...but actually doing it? If it was up to me, I would have kept this one in the house on pain of death!!:)
