Happy Birthday!

Dear Precious Boy,    Today is your birthday. You are eight years old. I cannot believe it. When you joined our family you were 13 months old. You were chubby and cuddly. It took everything I had to not spend my entire days snuggling you.

Over the last 7 years I Jax watched you grow and because a amazing brother and friend. Your smile still melts my heart and gets you out of more trouble than it should. 

I love you baby boy and hope that you feel loved and wanted today. 


Fishing with Father

I love this time of year. The time of year where you work in the yard all day and when you know you are done you stop and take time to enjoy the weather. I love that my husband rarely goes fishing alone. 

The kids love trying to catch the biggest fish. I don’t mind as long as the fish do not come back home with them. Although honestly frogs and worms always find a way into my home.

I love how these two look alike.  The faces they both have made keep me smiling.

Not Allowed to Grow Up

I am so grateful for this child. I refuse to believe she is growing up so fast. This week she turned in scholarship applications. She knows her momma loves chocolate cake so she made me chocolate cake with homemade buttercream frosting. 


Snow Day

We have had a little snow recently. I don’t generally like the snow. Okay I don’t like leaving the house in the snow. But I love when the kids can build snow igloos and go sledding. I love when I bring them in with rosy cheeks and then snuggle them until they are warm. I love the view from our barn.  Snow as far as you can see in the summer and corn as far as you can see in the summer. Hope loves the snow. She stacks it up and makes igloos for the animals to sleep in.
