Double Birthday

Today is a double birthday in our home.  Our youngest son, Son #7, turns eleven today!  We refer to this as the "railroad track birthday".  The saying comes from our oldest son as he was turning eleven.  He thought the number "11" looked like the rails of the train track! (Oh the sweet memories!)

Son #7 has been so excited for his birthday that he went to bed at 8:30 last night so his birthday would come sooner!  When I went in to pray with him he had the biggest smile on his face.  A couple hours later when I went in to pray with Son # 6, the smile was still on his face while sleeping.  So precious!

Today also happens to be my birthday!  Son #7 happens to be the best present a momma could ask for on her birthday!  He was born on my 39th birthday, so if my math is correct that would make me fifty!!!  Fifty is only an number, although Daughter #1 reminds me it is half of a century!

 
HAPPY 11th BIRTHDAY SON!
WE LOVE YOU AND PRAY
THAT THIS IS A WONDERFUL
DAY FOR YOU!
XOXO
LOVE, DADDY AND MOMMA

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! ;)
