Show & Tell: Train Up A Child

Sometimes it felt like this was me...
(taken from an eBay seller online)

But actually we only had seven children.

3 (his previous) + 3 (my previous) + 1 (together) = Only 7

{current ages: 26,23,23,22,21,20,18}

I have been looking for a representative of our 'little' brood for spring.

Imagine my pleasure when I found this on eBay!!

Isn't this the cutest thing??? AND seven sweet babies!!!!

Can you read the verse???
"Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6
{every parent's hope, and promise}

Perfect match! The Good Shepard Christ is from our trip to Salt Lake City, Utah in 2000. The church looks like the one we were married in, love couple vase was grandma's, crochet angel made by my mom-she holds my grandma's thimble, and wedding couple was on our cake and given by my mother-in-law. Spring is about love for us (Easter, love of God, wedding anniv), and the little bunnies fit right in.

I love it!
And I have my eye on a matching dad bunny currently on ebay (wish me luck:)!

Have a Happy Show & Tell Friday!!!

How perfect. When all those sweet children have children your cup of blessing will over flow. I had three and with grand children, great grandchildren and spouses we are now 25. By my calculations you could be looking at 58 people sitting down for holiday meals. Isn't that just awesome to think about? I love children...the truest and best blessing of God.

Have A Fun Filled Friday
