Mother’s Day Surprise

My family is soooo cute! They each came and spent a part of Mother’s Day with me. And I was given the most AWESOME gifts this year.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Among them was a beautiful, HOT PINK Kitchen Aid mixer!! Yes, yes, I know–it’s gorgeous and get this…

It matches my toaster!!!

But here’s a tip. Look closely before you throw any boxes away–

or you might miss one of the best gifts of all.

 

So, So Thankful

So very much to be thankful for this year.

The new exciting things, the old, comfortable things.

A few very, very hard things…

and some incredibly wonderful, happy things.

All, I believe, designed by our loving Heavenly Father to help us stretch and grow and love harder and stronger and ultimately…

to bring us closer to Him.

I am indeed grateful for my sweet home and cute chickens and my dear, dear family….

And I love them to bits.

Happy Thanksgiving my friends.

Those Silly Spooks

Our sweet little Halloween party has evolved into an event of huge proportions. So much so that we have to meet at a place that is bigger than any of our houses are.  Pretty fun to see that all those little spooks from years ago, are just great big even crazier spooks nowadays–with a whole new generation of littles coming right along behind.

Ooooh, I love these people.

while surrounded by my sweet family.

And fabulous food never hurts either.  I was too busy eating it to take pictures.

Har de har.
