Happy Birthday Daughter #7!

Today Daughter #7 turns, well...SEVEN!  *smile*  So hard to believe, my baby is SEVEN!
She is the last of my premature babies.  She was born eight weeks early and NO problems following her birth!  Of course she thought she was ready to come at 24 weeks and I spent seven weeks on bed rest.  She weighed a little over 4 pounds.  We still spent close to eight weeks in the NICU, but it was an uneventful stay!

Daughter #7 has asked for a couple of years to have her ears pierced.  I was pretty certain she was not ready for it.  So after explaining how it would be done, I slightly pinched her earlobe so she could feel what it would "feel" like.  That was enough for her she kept putting it off, until recently.  No swaying her, she said she was ready!  So we went to our semi-local "W" store to get her ears pierced for her birthday!  We did it yesterday so she could wake up and already have her birthday gift!


Such a brave litle soul!

Daughter-in-law #2 went with us and snapped this picture!  I think she got one after both were pierced,  so I will see if I can get that one and post it!


Happy 7th Birthday Daughter #7!
We love you so very much!

My Mother's Gentle Love

My Mother's Gentle Love
by Ron Hamilton
Who puts a band-aid on my knee?
Who holds me close so tenderly?
Who always sees the best in me?
There’s no one like mother.

Who always wipes my tears away?
Who tells me I’ll be great some day?
Who cares in such a gentle way?
There’s no one like mother.

My mother’s gentle love, my mother’s gentle love
Has taught me of God’s tender care, and turned my eyes above.
I’ll bless her all my days for all her gentle ways.
Oh, how I thank my Lord above for my mother’s gentle love.



Today is my mother's viewing, and tomorrow is her funeral.  The song above so much describes my mom.  She loved her four children so very much!  Before she had children, she was a nurse for "special care" babies~~"old" term for NICU.  Once she started having children she gave up her career to stay at home and raise her own babies. Thanks, Mom!

Thank you, Daddy, for allowing Mom to stay at home and raise us four children!







MERRY CHRISTMAS 2016

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM OUR FAMILY TO YOURS!!!!



Life on the Homestead

Life is keeping us busy.  We have had grans over, a couple family dinners, running teens to friends homes or a church activity. We are helping out a family friend who fell and broke a wrist. Now summer is in full swing and warm and humid!  The air conditioner has been doing its best to keep the home comfortable.

Next week our school age kiddos will be leaving for church camp.   That leaves us with the three adult children who still live at home.  This will be a first for us!

This week we have welcomed two, new to us, vehicles and next week two new licensed drivers....

Well.....I have been trying to get some pictures to upload but am not succeeding! Eeerrrrrr!  I will try again later, when I am not so frustrated!  I will try to keep calm and carry on! ;)
