Our beloved Daddy's birthday was in August...Dee and Joe on the horse...Goodness, this is s special picture. :) After a long day, 'o sisters of mine! ;)
Mr. L. H. has been building our farm website! We are so grateful for all his hard work, and are looking forward to sharing the results with you all. :)
Daddy building a friend's barn a few weeks ago...
Summer sunrises are glorious!
LOL!! How cute is this!?
Bretski and his 'Mawth'
The deck is almost done. We've really been enjoying it! Just a little more screening and painting to do...
Working on invitations for a New Year's get together here on the farm....Ink and Paper
Oh, y'all-this is too cute-the other day Critter (Michael III) came hopping through the front door exclaiming "glashes!! Sheee?? my glashes!?" LOL. He was so cute several of us insisted on having our picture made with him. (here's the sweetie and his Grandmama.) LOL, after a little while, the poor child's "glashes" started to fog over and he had a hard time deciphering his toy choices 'till we wiped them for him! :) He keeps the whole farm laughing...
And here's Paul and his watermelons! This little man grew them himself, and he was tickled pink about it!! His sweet Granddaddy bought quite a few of them from him, and ya'll, that just made his month! It was so precious.
We must not forget 'De Beastling, Smokey! He likes Mama's planter as a bed-LOL, it looks so cute! Yeah, he a good mouser, too...
Oh, and we were so blessed to go down to FL and see our dear C.'s and all the other wonderful folks down there!! The C.'s house is looking beautiful and is really coming along. Above, Mama and Aunt L. enjoy visiting, and A. contemplates stalking G. and her plate. (Just kidding, honey. ;D)
Mama dear said we should call this one "The Three Musketeers" :D Ah, two of my dearest friends in the world, they are!! I'm missing Katie in this one...
Aren't they precious!!? Ah, thank the Lord for such dear, dear parents...We went to the beach while we were down there, and had a blast!! Here's Cleve....
...and the menfolk with their surfing boards.
Oh! And we got lots of chickens, too! I love their color-I think they are called Golden Nuggets. The little, well, younger, (our Five Little Indians are growing up so quickly...ah! they are so precious...) Anyway, our younger boys have been doing such a wonderful job of diligently taking care of them. We're really looking forward to eggs one day!

Well, have a very blessed evening, y'all. I've got to run-we girls are putting up our summer clothes and bringing out the cozy fall/winter stuff!! That's always so fun. But we are determined to finish it tonight, and not have a single pile of clothes left in sight before we go to bed!! You know how that one (or two) little pile of clothes stays on a chair for a week or longer, or a little longer waiting to be hemmed, taken to Hope House, etc.? Ahh! "No more, quoth they!! no stitch of clothing shall be left unturned! no stack of raiment shall be seen in all the room! No shoe out of place-!" Anyway. We'll see. :) But, Lord willing, we shall do it!!

Then I'd better go!!

Goodnight, and may your sleep be sweet!!

Love putting up those clothes!

I have decided instead of complaining about how many there are when I pull them down and go through them, I will rejoice in my abundance and be thankful!

The picture with all the surfboards looks like a postcard you could buy that would say "wish you were here"!

Your mama always has such a sweet look to her, so calm and loving! How blessed you are to have such an example!
