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?
I can not believe it is already 2017…. 2016 went by so very quickly. So much happened I can’t even remember it all. Our boys seemed to have a good year (at least that is what they told us 😉 ) For Christmas the two pups got new bowties and Grayson already had his from before Christmas. So for new years they wanted to … Read More HAPPY NEW YEAR 2017!
Twas the day before Christmas my parents had arrived and we were busy baking, cooking, playing games, listening to Christmas music, and doing all sorts of Christmas activities. The boys were under our feet much of the day, but at one moment I noticed they weren’t. I guess they decided to go wait for Santa… I probably should tell them that Santa comes down the chimney not … Read More Twas the day before Christmas…Christmas Eve
Merry Christmas… a few days late… sorry was pretty busy, but I was thinking of all of my readers. I hope you all had a blessed Christmas and enjoyed time with people you care about. We had a nice day of Church, family, presents, and very good food. The boys patiently waited to open their gifts… And then fell asleep on their new toys… … Read More Merry Belated Christmas 2016…
Traditions are important to every person I know or have come into contact with. Our traditions usually come from our families, but once you get married you usually come up with some of your own. One tradition hubby and I do is try to have all our gifts bought by Thanksgiving or the week after and then have them wrapped by this time each … Read More Wrapping all the way…
The USA celebrates Thanksgiving today… a day that originated when the pilgrims’ and the Indians put aside their differences to celebrate together and focus on the things they shared. Today I challenge us to focus on the positive, the good, and the things we have in common and to be grateful to celebrate those things. Today I am thankful for many things and am … Read More Happy Thanksgiving (Thankful day)
We have one tree out by the road that always is so pretty when it changes colors. We love this tree as it signals fall and is just pretty to look at. It also reminds me that Thanksgiving is on it’s way and it helps me to remember what I am thankful for. Even when it seems thing aren’t going your way, things could … Read More Fall brings Thankfulness
I love fall. If I had to pick a favorite season I would choose fall. It is the season hubby and I were married in, it has great weather for my boots, jeans and a vest, its not too rainy, its not too hot or too cold, and its the beginning of the good food season… hot apple cider, soups, stews, roasts, and all sorts of … Read More Autumn is upon us… I love it
This past week hubby and I went away overnight for our anniversary. Our neighbor agreed to watch the chickens and feed/let out the dogs so we could go. On the drive to Pittsburg, PA we went though the Gap. It has really pretty views especially in the morning hours. I am usually looking up at the mountains from home. Its a different perspective looking … Read More Anniversary Trip
Sorry this post is late USA, but I spent my Labor day with hubby and the boys hiking and spending good quality time together… We had one of the best hikes we have had had in a while. Beautiful scenery, not too hard of a hike where we couldn’t talk and enjoy the scenery, but hard enough we got a decent work out. The dogs … Read More Belated Labor Day…
While we were on our trip late May early June we did a lot of different things. I went zip lining for the first time with my nephew who graduated (Soooooo fun I would totally do it over and over again), went to different places I had never been before (like Branson), and got to go on other adventures including going though a Safari … Read More The Safari Park
