Thirty Years and Counting

Today Hubby and I celebrate our 30th anniversary!  WOW!  It does not seem possible!  I was a young bride of 19 when I got married, and though the mirror, clothes, and aches and pains tell me different, in my mind I still feel like 19; a very wise and mature nineteen! *smile*

In thirty years of marriage we have given birth to 14 children, suffered 2 miscarriages, gone from driving our first car together, a little gray Chevette, to a 15 passenger van.  We have seen five children set out on their own, four children get married, 8 grandchildren welcomed into our family, many heartaches and more blessings than a body can count.

I am so thankful that I was given this wonderful man.  He truly is the light of my life and my best friend.

Birthday Celebrations Continue!

Today we are celebrating Daughter #2!  Today she is 21!  Oh my!  That is hard to believe!  It does not seem like she should be 21, but time marches forward!

D#2 in my go-getter!  When she sets her mind to something she will see it through to the end!  If you look up the word "determined" in the dictionary you would most likely see a picture of her! *smile*

Happy Birthday Daughter! We love  you and are so thankful that God gave you to us! xoxo Love, Daddy and Momma

Grandson C Turns One!

It seems like time flies while raising a family.  One day turns into another, then a week, a month and  before you know it an entire year has gone by!

That is exactly how I feel since Grandson C was born a year ago, except with the grands it seems to go by much quicker!  Must be an age thing!

Today we celebrate Grandson C!  He is Son #1 youngest son.

Field Trip

Hubby took a vacation day on Friday of last week.  So we decided that it would be a great day for a field trip.  We had test and quizzes that were scheduled and I do not like to postpone the T's and Q's.  So we had Bible class and then everyone completed the T/Q's for the day. 
After a quick bite to eat we headed off on our field trip---a cemetery!  Creepy, crazy, I know, but we like roaming cemetery's!  We went to Crown Hill Cemetery.  The cemetery has over 200,000 people buried in it.  But it is also the cemetery where several famous people are buried.  We explored graves from soldiers, public servants, authors, poets, governors, vice presidents and a president.  Not to mention well known business owners and a well know bank robber!  Yep!  We covered a lot of history on Friday!   

The photos are from Daughter #2.  I think she did a very good job!

Some of the stones were modern even though the person had been buried for some time.  But the markers were created in ho…

The First of September Birthdays

Today our Daughter #6, (11th child) turns 12!  I must say, she is a mite bit bigger than she was 12 years ago.  She was born at 28 weeks, weighing just a little over 2 pounds.  She was so tiny and frail we could just barely touch her.  No stroking, no holding, actually no stimulation!

She loves horses, plaid shirts, and cowboy boots!  Not to mention "stealing" her older sister's favorite slippers and wearing them!  I can hardly wait to see what God has in store for my girl!

Happy Birthday Daughter! Daddy and I love you very much! xoxo
