The Adventures of a Specialized Carrier Truck Driver

 Dad was on his way home from a long trucking trip and he called to say that he had just passed the place where he normally parks his big trailer, and it was full of other trailers. So he had to bring the trailer to our place, turn it around in one of the fields, and park it along side the driveway.
 For the past week or two it has been raining. A lot. So when he went to turn around in the fields, he got stuck. Very stuck. His wheels just sunk into the soft ground and he couldn't move. So, the truck and trailer was left out in the field until Saturday.
 Saturday morning dad, Jordon, and Levi, (Boaz went along to watch and I went to take these picture,) took the Chevy truck and the tractor out there to pull the big truck and trailer out.

The big truck.


Hooking the chains up.
Try number one. They tried to pull it out backwards because they thought that this would be there best chance. They have the tractor and 'little' truck hooked up to the back of the trailer. It didn't work. They barely budged the big truck and trailer. 
Try number two. They tried to pull it forward. That also didn't work.

Try number three.
This picture is so you can see the size difference in the trucks. I always thought that our Chevy truck was fairly big. But you have no idea just how big Semi trucks are until you stand beside one. This truck is huge! But believe it or not, the trailer is heavier then the truck.
Try number three didn't work either.

Try number four. And it didn't work either.
SOOOOO, we called our good neighbor. He works on tractors and always has a few big ones around. Maybe he had something to help us out this time.
How about a big four wheel drive tractor?
Try number five. And it.........worked!
I want that tractor!

A Triumphant Christmas Message from Geoffrey Botkin

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even forever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this.
– Isaiah 9:6-7

Since 2 of our grandchildren's birthdays fall around the Christmas holidays and TJ and his family go out of town to the other grandparents for Christmas, we celebrated the birthdays yesterday.

Titus celebrated his 1st birthday (which is actually today) and Natasha is 3 on the 25th.

Since I haven't been real excited about posting on our blog for a while, I will take the easy way out and direct you to Johanna's blog that has the birthday pictures.
Hope you enjoy the pics.


(NaturalNews) Following the State of Maryland's threats against parents who refuse to have their children vaccinated, children were herded into a Price George County courthouse being guarded by armed personnel with attack dogs. Inside, the children were forcibly vaccinated, many against their will, under orders from the State Attorney General, various State Judges and the local School Board Director, all of whom illegally conspired to threaten parents with imprisonment if they did not submit their children to vaccinations.

Abigail's 13 birthday

Yesterday was Abigail's 13th birthday. We had T.J., Rachel, Elise, and Gabriel over for lunch.
She wanted to have Ice Cream Cake, which was very good!

Umm. Spoon tastes yummy.
Mom wanted to get a picture of all four of her grandchildren together. Do you have any idea how hard it is to get a picture of four children five and under, all smiling at once? Very hard. These two pictures are the best that we got.

Titus. He is so cute! And so friendly!
Aww. I thought this one was just CUTE!
Garrett likes to get up on his hands and knees. He hasn't quite figured out how to crawl. Yet.
