Any idea for a caption?

I don't have anything clever to say about this nor an explanation.

ZQ Turns 2!

Two years ago, my daughters gave birth to three boys within 38 days! They are all now in the process of turning two. I didn't blog about Caesar's birthday as his Mom did and she had all the good pictures!

But, last Friday was Ezekiel's birthday.

He celebrated with a dinosaur theme.
His mom did a great job on his cake -- without a pattern or instructions!

Trying on his gift from Papa and Nana -- a dinosaur suit!

Levi Joseph

Levi Joseph, our 10th (!) grandchild was born yesterday morning at 5:16. He weighed 8 lbs. 8 oz. and was 21 inches long. He is adorable! Levi has already proven to be a good baby -- he gave his mother a wonderful pregnancy and came just when he was supposed to. Serena is doing very well. All his siblings adore him.

Kissing Serena before she leaves for the operating room.

Just born.

Kissing Mommy for the first time.
Meeting everyone! Wow! There were a lot of people to meet!

Waiting to go into the recovery room.

"I am loved."
"My Nana!"

"Mommy and me........Hey, this nursing is great!"

Do Not Apply

In between reading The Poisoning of Women over at Home Living and this on, I happened to see this on a box containing a pretty lavender bar of soap.

So, what other parts of your body should not come in contact with this soap? Is it safe to use in the bathtub? I think it would be best to avoid it altogether, don't you? It really is so pretty, though!

Passionate Housewives Desperate for God

I won a copy! Hurray!


Okay, yes, it is another giveaway. But this is one you don't want to miss! I have been awaiting the publishing of this book. It is finally coming out and the site Biblical Womanhood along with Vision Forum is giving away 10 copies of this soon-to-be-released must-read book by Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald!

What the publishers have to say:

"Have you struggled to reconcile God's vision of virtuous womanhood with worldly myths that marginalize and mock the role of the homemaker? Do you wrestle with cultural messages that demean the homemaker's calling and exalt instead the emotionally androgynous power-woman -- the wife whose worth is measured only by the degree of her ambition, the shape of her body, or her money-making skills? Such is the image of the "desperate housewife" that the modern media, culture, and feminism are promoting with great energy.

"In a delightfully fresh and honest way, this book addresses these issues head-on and provides fresh vision for the hopeful homemaker. Hear a former "Christian" feminist share how she went from a die-hard homemaker-in-training to a dedicated career woman and then back again -- after God gripped her heart. See the hollow counterfeit of whitewashed feminism and "me-ology" destroyed. And consider the beautiful picture painted in Scripture of the truly fulfilled homemaker who glories in the hopeful calling God created for her.

"Pull up a chair, dust off the cookie crumbs, and join Jennie Chancey and Stacy McDonald as they lay aside stereotypes like the "Stepford wife" and dispel such myths as the 1950s "perfect homemaker." Laughter and tears will flow, and hopefully you will be infused with a renewed vision for victory as a wife and mother. Discover what it means to be a passionate housewife "desperate" for God alone!"

So, go to Biblical Womanhood and enter! Giveaway ends Saturday, October 13.
