Happy Sixteen!!!

Today marks a milestone in Son #5's life...he turns sixteen!!!!  It is so hard to believe that he is "that old"!  What makes it even harder to believe is that he is taller than I am!  I keep telling him it is because his hair is too thick on top of his head!  Truth be known, he is taller than me.  That's okay, he will still always be my "baby boy". *smile* 


Happy 16th Birthday Son!
Daddy and I love you!

  1. I think it is such a turning point for boys when they outgrow their mom. I know when my son finally reached my height (6'), he was about 13. But when we stretched out our arms, my hands only reached his wrists! I knew he was going to be a whole lot taller when he finished growing! He is now almost 26 and I think he is finished growing at just shy of 6'6"! And, yes, he is still my "baby boy" and always will be!!

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! ;)
