My 11th Birthday

Today is my birthday and I had a doll tea party and invited the girls from our church over for tea! Here are some pictures of it.

Here I am opening my gifts.

Here we are playing London bridge.

Here we are playing "Hot Candy Cane".

We also wrapped each other in toilet paper.

All the dolls.

Here's the table.

This is my Life of Faith doll I received for my birthday. Her name is Kathleen McKenzie.

Thank you everyone who came for coming! I had a great time!!: )

Wow, 16, it seems like just yesterday she was small enough to carry, fit in a stroller, and needed her little pink doll to stop she needs money to stop crying! :D

Honestly, Janai Marie is the sweetest 16 year old I know. She is so dependable and talented, I can't believe she's mine! :0

A few of Janai's gifts, talents, and accomplishments are:

  • Great personality
  • Great sense of humor
  • Beautiful (gets it from her Mommy)

  • Embraces Biblical femininity, and seeks to live it out
  • Cares deeply for the youth of our nation and is seeking to be a light to them with her life
  • Has never sinned :)
  • And most important, walks with Jesus Christ everyday
So feel free to send a message to Janai via the comments here as I'm sure she'd love to hear from you...

Happy Birthday Janai,
Love Daddy!

A Little Switching

You are probably wondering why you see all of these changes coming on this blog, right? Well. . .

I, Janai Marie Fuentes, have officially started a new blog! It is called "Teen Impact"! So since I have done this, Naomi has taken over "Daughters of the King". I will still post on here though, just not as often.

And that explains why you see as these changes! Also when Nomi posts she signs it "~Naomi~". ( Just so you'll know it's her.)

My Conversation. . .

I got on the phone the other day and called my dad.

Dad: What Gumboo?

Me(Naomi): Um, Are you at the store?

Dad: No.

Me: Did you pass the store?

Dad: No.

Me: Are you going to the store?

Dad: No.

Me: Well, Mommy wants you to get some popcorn and you could get some ice cream for me and you.

Dad: No, because you're a "Marshmallow Alien"!

(Remember, my dad has a great sense of humor)

My Wildflowers

Earlier this year, I planted some wildflowers from seed. . .

. . . And here is how they came out.

Please pray for my Grandma Sara! She's been having problems with her heart and has been going in the hospital, frequently! She just went in last night again with her heart racing, tomorrow she's going to get shocked and Monday she's going to have surgery! Which is alot for a women in her age! All prayer's are appreciated!

Remnants of Ike

(This is from my mom's blog. I wanted to show you how much water we had here!)

I know this is a little late getting this up (remember I have eight children!) but I wanted to share how the front of our home looked two weekends ago when we were supposed to receive the remnants of hurricane Ike----a few cities in our area were declared disaster areas because of the overwhelming amount of water they received. We were lucky not to get any water in our home.

In the front of our home there is an intersection, it was filled to capacity from an overflowing ditch. Also there is a man-made lake across the street stocked with fish that spilled onto the road. Cars were dying out everywhere.

Above is Ravi showing you were the street once was. Thank God our home is on a slope!

Here's the view from inside. Isn't it lovely? The water rose even higher than what you see here. That whole area in front is usually all grass, that day we could have swam across it!

Cars did their best to get by but some were no match for the water.

Too bad Nana isn't here, she'd probably like to go fishing right about now. (See the cops in the background trying to block oncoming cars?)

When a poor soul would die out from the flood waters, my husband Steve jumped in the van and ran to the rescue (and he loved every minute---he is really my hero!). He helped push alot of people out of the water like this guy above who had to wait until his car dried out to start it again. Steve also helped people well into the night. (Is there any wonder why I am enamored with him?)

We were very fortunate, however, we do have family in Galveston, Texas who were not as lucky. Please pray for our family who are trying to rebuild their lives and all the others there as well.

Thanks for viewing my flood pictures!


This movie will be out in two days, it is from the same producers of 'Flywheel' and 'Facing the Giants'.

"Mom Palin"

You've all seen this picture. . .

. . .What about this one?

(Sarah Palin and her youngest child, Trig.)

Joshua (4 yrs old) is always saying little things that are cute or funny, so I wanted to post some so you could read them. (Note he says "Now" in the beginning of almost every sentence!)

The other day Naomi and Josh were talking outside and then she asked him what he wished he could be? She started naming different things such as a pastor, a bug, a chair, and other things. When she finished he said, "Now, you just forgot a millipede!" and of course, that's what he wanted to be! =)

Josh was talking to my dad and out of the blue he said, "When I grow older, I want to be a Bible-doughnut Boy!"! (I think he wanted the best of both worlds!)

Once Nomi was in the bath-room and Josh knocked and she answered "Who is it?" and he said "Now, I just saw that it was me!".

When the Olympics were going on he wanted to watch it and asked my mom, "Now, me just want to watch a 'limpics!"

And finally, last week our neighbors invited us to pick their concord grapes and we did. That night Joshy was praying and said "Please tell Mr. Lamb to tell us to pick his grapes again!"

Acts 29. . .

Recently, we (the siblings) gave money to help support ministry's and organizations. I gave to "Voice of the Martyrs", Naomi gave to "Above Rubies", Stephen gave to "Walk in the Word", and Ravi gave to "Acts 29"! Right now, I want to talk about Ravi, his 5 dollars, and "Acts 29".

The other day (after we sent the money), Ravi received a letter from 'Acts 29' that said they started a fund called "Ravi's Matching Fund"!!

The vice president, Scott Thomas (who is very busy!), even went to write about Ravi on his own blog! Ravi's money went to help plant a church in Georgia! Ravi is helping to change the world!

Click on "A Child's Heart for Church Planting" to see Ravi's letter and the post written about him (and to possibly match his fund!).

For those of you who don't know, "Acts 29" is a church planting network. They have planted over 100 churches in America and are still going strongly! And my whole family loves what they're doing!

Update. . .

This time I'm not posting any pictures! Anyway, today at our home we had a garage sale and I think we did pretty good! (money wise!) One of the people that came was an old woman named "Jackie" and after she bought her stuff, she asked if we read the Bible and if we were Christians? and my mom said yes that we were Christians and read the Bible, then she was so happy, she gave us all hugs (complete stranger!), and said she loved us! (I thought that was neat! I don't know why though!)

I was thinking about starting a new blog for teens (everyone but, teenagers primarily) called something like "Impact Teens". What do you think? Can anyone give me ideas?

I liked this sign.

Doesn't this look like the front of a movie cover or something?

Martin Luther nailing the 95 theses.

Who can resist that face?

Who is this??
