There is no purpose to this post except to show you the many sides of Machen. He keeps us laughing. Even Jon and Lauren occasionally remark that they can't imagine life without him. We're ever thankful that God gave us this little distraction--He always anchors us in what is truly eternal.

Watching the landscape. Machen spends a lot of time in that car seat.

SO proud of his own shopping cart. He's actually posing for this picture--it took him a minute to get his feet crossed just right.
It seems Caleb's birthday always rolls around at the perfect time, just as winter is ending. We're always glad to have a party. These past 18 years have been a profound blessing for Mom and Dad during our journey through parenthood. God has been so very good. It's hard to imagine this grown man as a babe in arms, but he really once was. He is much loved by us all.
This winter our ewe had triplets. We ended up losing one lamb and the ewe, which was very hard on all of us, especially shepherd Jon. So through this winter we have been raising two lambs, which kept us pretty busy. Here they are one day old.
Sweet little tiny things...
...except that they grow up, and these two actually think they're dogs or something. They hang out with us in the greenhouse, and in the flower beds...
