When we all work together...

... It's impressive to see the results. :) We are thrilled to have some great friends of ours visiting with us right now, and grateful for their help with our remodeling project! *Yoders, y'all are awesome* :) Enjoy the photos!

Emptying the room...

Scraping up the old flooring...

Small beginnings :)
 We poured the slab for this room at the beginning of the year, and we've worked on it slowly but surely since then! Finally ready to lay tile!

Jacob sharpening his implement :)

Lots of workers. :)

An attempt to keep concrete dust out of the rest of the house

The new, temporary dining area. Nice, huh?
 An army marches on it's stomach, you know.
Lana managed to consolidate her kitchen essentials (for two days) into these :)

Jonah, workin' hard :)

Happy Fall, Y'all!

Seriously, is Fall not delicious? We of the Wilson household are thoroughly enjoying it and hope y'all are too! God has blessed us so much and we are so thankful for His continued workings in our lives. Among all our other activities lately, we were able to spend a few days at a Bible Conference in Meridian, Mississippi with friends (some old, some new, some made while there!) It was a great time and we were blessed by the preaching, singing, fellowshiping, and everything else! Here are a few of our snapshots from the week....

Rachel with our friend Sarah

Jamming.... it seems to happen everywhere we go :)

Let's see... Sarah, Rachel, Hannah, Rachel Wilson,
Luke, Daniel, Jacob

Wilson, Tate and Laird Girls!

Lana and Sarah (dangerously alike!)

The great preachers we were privileged to hear all week!

More jammin' :)
Hope all of you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and may God bless you as you celebrate the birth of His Son! We love all of you!

Weekend in Texas

So I'm just getting around to blogging about what we did two weeks ago. I know, yay me! (Quit looking at me like that.) We went to Texas and had a fabulous weekend at the first annual No Greater Joy Big Texas Shindig. Enjoy the snapshots....

Luke on the rock wall

World's largest game of musical chairs :)

Why don't you kick that ball, Jacob?

Jonah showing us how it's done

Levi. The one and only.

Daniel in the sand box. I love the pensive expression....

Heartstrings on stage

Kickball, yeah!

Lana and the guys went canoeing... a first for Lana :) Unfortunately there was no one to man the camera while she was on the water!

Jacob and Jonah

Rock climbing

This was not actually taken in Texas, I just love it to pieces. Is he not beyond preciously handsomely adorable?!

Fort Rock Family Camp

Let me start by saying that this post is decidedly late in coming... but then leaving one's camera in Arkansas when one heads to Mississippi can create problems like that. :) Sorry! But better late than never... so here are some shots from the next to last leg of our sojourn in the Ozarks! 

Luke and Austin Forsyth getting ready to try out the zipline

Lana chatting with friends

Daddy with friends Jim Bob Duggar and Terry Forsyth

Girls and hair dressing.... gotta love it :)

No, not Ring Around the Roses... a slightly more masculine version known as "poison". Winning. 

Levi working on the zipline (with input from friends)

Luke and Dad... hard at work as usual!

The Crew (or part of it)

The Bosses :)


Some of the crew and some of the onlookers

Allie and Meagan!

Levi... not sure what he was thinkin' :)

All in all we spent a fabulous five weeks on the road.... glad to be home now and getting ready for  another trip to Big Sandy, Texas and the No Greater Joy Big Texas Shindig! We would love to see some of you there!

Mountain View

In between all the craziness of our life on the road, we were able to relax for a couple days in Mountain View, AR.... it was fun to do nothing for a change. :)

A picnic in the park

Seth and Daniel had an impromptu spoon playing lesson at Mellon's Country Store

I love this guy :)

Luke and his guitar... where you find one, you find the other. :)

Jamming at the park

Luke trying his hand at trout fishing

Catching crawfish.

Possibly my favorite fisherman ever! :)

The Catch Of The Day ;)

Lana on the back porch of the cabin

We're back in NW AR now, should be heading home next week! Thanks for your prayers!
