Happy Fall!

Autumn...my most favorite season.  Love the cool days with a bit of warm sunshine.  The smell of wet leaves...the feel of dry leaves crunching underfoot. 

This month has been busy.  Each weekend has been filled with a youth or church activity for the teens and will continue to be that way until at least mid-October.  Then I think there is only one Saturday with nothing on the calendar until soccer and volleyball tournaments at the end of the month.

We have celebrated three birthdays this month and our anniversary is the 24th.  Of course with youth activity and a grands birthday party our celebration of 33 years will have to wait until another day!

I have a few pictures of cards to share...


These were made for some college students in South Carolina.
I try to send a card each month to keep the PO boxes dusted! :)

This was a sympathy card.  The jar is stamped on the paper
and then again on some clear thin plastic to make it
appear like glass. 

Daughter #2 just turned 24.  I saw a card on Pinterest that had 5 jars with
the water color.  I did my own thing using the other card as a spring board.
Our daughter LOVES tie-dye.  So this sort of  gave that look.

I made this in card club.  It is a shadow box/frame.  Great for adding a little
cash.  I cut the 24 and added it to the 'sleeve' that goes around frame.

Daughter #6 turned 15.  This was the same idea as the box/frame.
Except we used this as her "card".  We wrote our sentiments on
the back of the 'sleeve'.  It was something different.

Close up of box with sleeve in place.

(all cards were made using Stampin' Up! products!)

That is all for now!  I know I have some more pictures to share, but that will need to wait for another day.  Hope the first day of autumn is wonderful for you!

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! ;)
