The snow is starting to lay!!!!


We're getting snow.......
OK, it's just a little at this moment, but having snow here in our part of Tennessee is exciting....for young and old;)
Now if we close the store early enough to go out and play in it!?!? We have littles who would love it!

An open mouth smile....

Tonight when Arthur/Daddy was playing silly games with sweet Susanna her eyes glistened with amusement, and her mouth opened to display a smile of overflowing joy.
The simple times bring the most pleasure and enjoyment in life....I'm so thankful for the simple moments.

Ruth Ella & William's Birthday...Part 1

This post is LONG overdue, from September!
William and Ruth Ella shared a birthday celebration  at a Mexican restaurant.
We had 2 dear friends visiting that week helping us do work at the farm,
so Matthew and Jonathan came along to celebrate.

The kids got a kick out of the singing......

William loved wearing the sombrero.....

 Ruth Ella not so much!!!

 But they both enjoyed the dessert!

Today I have been lookin' through all my pictures. I just love pictures, they bring a smile to my face and give me that warm cozy feeling inside, ya know ?!? So many pictures with so many memories to share. I'm thinkin' that since I'm limited on time to blog I just may have to blog pictures with few words to catch up from 2013...Yep, now to work on pictures :)
Hope your having a wonderful start to 2014!

Happy New Year!!!!

It's January and a new year,
it truly came so fast!
We said good bye to 2013,
which held some wonderful memories and milestones....
We welcomed in 2014,
with great excitement and anticipation
for new ventures and the unknowns!
I thought long and hard about resolutions for 2014,
I came up with a list of things I could change,
surrender, make, accomplish, and places to travel.
Then reality hit and it hit hard....
Can or will I be able to keep all the resolutions?!? 
Truth is, I more than likely,
can't and won't
keep the resolutions!
Oh, they are all things I want to strive for,
but not be so bound to that
I'm frustrated when or if they aren't achieved.

My plan is to...
 Live simply in this journey called 'life'...
To love deeply....
Soak in my family...
Wake each morning ready for whatever comes my way...
And I'm still keeping my list,
to check things off of "if" they are accomplished :)

Happy New Year, Y'all!
