The Surprise At Church

Bethany's first Sunday at church!
The newly-expanded family all together at church.
Introducing Bethany.
Mr. R was testing out the internet connection to make sure they're ready for live stream! Yes, our friends, the R. family, are going to take care of setting up a computer to watch the live stream for our dear friends to be able to watch the wedding at the nursing home!
Fun with Abby after church (and yes, you see Dad wearing a coat--the temperatures dropped into the 30's last night).

The official countdown is now here, with only three days left until we leave–either Wednesday evening or early Thursday morning! We’re excited! We would be grateful for your prayers as we plow through much that has to be accomplished.

Our first stop is Dixon, Illinois, for a conference Thursday. It’s about 2 hours from Chicago (west).

Sarah for the rest

“How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings” (Psalms 36:7).

  1. Sweet family post!

    Will definitely be praying for the trip! Hope the preparations are going peacefully smooth!

    God bless! Love, Rebecca K.

  2. I can see the countdown has begun. Prayers for safe and smooth travels as you work your way to Washington for a most special occasion. It’s such a blessing that you have someone to arrange the live-stream so everyone can enjoy the wedding ceremony.

    See you soon.

    Blessings, Mrs. Mari

  3. I LOVE that carrier! We are expecting a new one in May (#6) and I would very much appreciate it if you could tell me what brand of carrier that is. Thank You. She is so precious.
    It’s an Ergo Carrier!


  4. LOVE the photos! Thanks!

    My big question is what type of baby carrier is it that Melanie is wearing there and does she like it? There are so many out there and I would love to know if that configuration is comfortable? Or maybe she made it and didn’t buy it? Bethany certainly looks snug and comfy there!

    It’s actually an Ergo baby carrier. A family on a trip a few years ago gave it to them as a gift! They’ve LOVED it!

  5. When is the wedding? will there be info on the live-streaming so we can all watch it? Blessings,Tania

    October 23rd, and yes, it’ll be live streamed. We will be posting that info at some point before the wedding!

  6. The photos are great! Your whole family (Inculding Melanie and her wonderful bundle) are always in my prayers. Christopher, I’m prayin’ too, about the wedding!!

  7. Oh, how I love to see a baby being “worn” instead of carried around in a piece of plastic!!
