Birthday #29

Today is our oldest son's twenty-ninth birthday!  Wow!  Twenty-nine!  I can remember when I gave birth to our 9# 3oz baby boy WITHOUT pain meds!  His labor was a total of eight hours from the time my water broke, IN PUBLIC, to his first breath!  (actually I felt a little cheated, all the anticipation of waiting for this little human to come into my life and BAM! over in eight hours!  and he was my longest labor!)

Anyway...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SON #1!
DADDY AND I ARE SO THANKFUL
GOD GAVE US A PRECIOUS SON!
  WE ARE SO PROUD OF YOU!
We love you so much!
xoxo
<3 Momma and Daddy

  2. I wish my first one had "only" been 8 hours! lol 33 hours from water pop to her appearance...ugh! But I think everyone in our Lamaze class agreed that every minute was worth it! Can you believe our oldest are 29? Are you having as difficult a time with it as I am? I survived turning 50, but them turning 29 is just a bit too much! I can't imagine next year... :-0

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! ;)
