Hello all! Sorry it's been so long, but we had company last week! :)
The K. Family from MN came down to visit and we had a blast!
Here are just a few pics. of the first few days. We didn't get many after that.
The first thing we did was go to Lincoln's tomb. It was closed that day :<>

Maelee really enjoyed all the extra attention and getting to go on "car rides" almost everyday.

Everyone took lots of pics.

This is a rock that you can offer a penny to Lincoln! Isn't that sad!

On the side of this tower was the slab that Lincoln's body was laid on after he had died.

(I know this is a lot of Lincoln stuff but this is IL.!)

"I touched Lincoln's slab!"


There was very pretty arcitecture.

No Silas don't eat it! >Ewwww!<

Ok, I know this proababy sounds weird but we visited two cemetaries while they were here! It was really neat looking at the dates and names.

Hi Mrs. McC.

"Is there any"body" in there?!"

Next we visited Lincoln's Sprinfield home.

Pretty day.

Maelee taking a break.

The Cooper shop.

Well, that's all I have time for now! Praying you all have a blessed week!

Awsome Creator

The other day Ben and I went out after a fog and took some pictures of God's beautiful creation with water droplets. Don't we have an AWSOME Creator?! Enjoy!
This is my Father's world,
And to my list'ning ears,

All nature sings, and round me rings,
The music of the spheres.

This is my Father's world, I rest me in the thought,
Of rocks and trees, of skies and seas, His hand the wonders wrought.

This is my Father's world,
The birds their carols raise,

The morning light, the lily white,
Declare their Maker's praise.

This is my Father's world,
He shines in all that's fair;

In the rustling grass,
I hear him pass,

He speaks to me ev'rywhere.

More, more about Jesus,
More, more about Jesus;

More of His saving fullness see,
More of His love who died for me.

Then sings my soul,
My Savior God to Thee,
How great Thou art!
How great Thou art!

How GREAT Thou art!

O for a thousand tongues to sing,
My great Redeemer's praise,

The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace!

My gracious Master and my God,
Asist me to proclaim,

To spread through all the earth abroad,
The honors of Thy name.
