Thinking of Christmas and things that were different and the same for Christmas 2020. One thing that never changes is our boys smiles at Christmas time when were are all together… They love watching the paper come off presents, seeing what is inside, the food treats they get, sniffing the gifts for them, getting a new toy, or just a different atmosphere for the … Read More Happy Blessing Boys!
One thing we love to do when it gets cold is go on hikes with the boys. Baxter is getting older now and can’t go far and we haven’t done much hiking this year with everything, but today after church we had a chance to. The boys really love exploring and being out. Despite Baxter’s limitations and the cold, we all had a good … Read More Winter Walk
I blinked and it is already fall. I don’t know what it is… being so busy, this virus throwing things a little wonky, or just the fact that every year seems to go by faster and faster… but a friend of mine texted me today to say Happy First Day of Fall and I was like “whoa it is already fall”! How did that … Read More Surprise It’s Fall!
How many of you can you relate to this? You have animals all your life and then once you get to be an adult you get your first animal that is all yours. Its a great thing, until down the road when you start to look at pictures of them and realize… They are frosty old. Then it is very real… you have to … Read More My Old Man
I said in my last post I would post about our chicken run we built for the baby chicks to be outside in, yet safe from predators like hawks. And it works we have had a hawk try to get them in here without success. We have also used it to separate chickens as needed like when they are minor sick or injured. Keeps them outside … Read More Growing and Learning
I know I have been gone for a long time. Had a lot going on, but not much blog worthy. A couple weeks ago I was at our family friends house and my friends dad presented me with the new little cuties…. So introducing our 8 new baby chicks. So if I sexed them correct we have 1 boy and 7 girls… This is … Read More Introducing….
It’s nice to have friends you can count on… ones that are really there to help when you need it. Ones who support you and give you really advice and care even if it’s not what you always want to hear. It’s also great to be that kind of friend. Someone who is there for others when they need you, even if it may … Read More Friends
While on my trip I came across some woodland friends… I remember seeing the movie Bambi for the first time. I can remember most of my first experiences with Disney movies and I bet most of you can as well. You can remember the characters, what you felt, and what your impression was of the movies as a child. Funny when you watch them … Read More Woodland Friends
As I thought about family this past Easter I was reminded that family is not just the one we are born into. It is the journey of the people the Lord brings into our lives. Its those special people who treat you like they are blood relatives (and sometimes better) and you feel the same about them. Its about the relationships we develop with … Read More What is family?
This is my sweet kitty last CHRISTmas time. He loved to snuggle and sleep on the CHRISTmas blanket by the tree. We have had a hard time finding a tree this year. Our normal tree place doesn’t open till the 1st and our tradition has always been to get our tree the day after thanksgiving (any one else do this?). But this year hubby was working … Read More Sweet Sleepy Grayson
Last September we were able to go to the lake for a little vacation with my folks. It was actually one of the most relaxing vacations since our honeymoon over 10 years ago. Our boys came. Our lab/healer mix wanted nothing to do with the water or boat. We barley got him on the double decker dock. Yet our terrier mix Chase absolutely loved everything … Read More Memories of September
