Ordinary Days

Good afternoon, Mon Cheris!

Well, here's me and Marth, giving a happy hall-ooos and hug to you!

So much to tell you about! But, 'till a post about the Style Show weekend (we had such an incredible time with so many precious ladies!) here is a massive post about life here on the farmling of late. Lots of pictures-be sure you're well hydrated and have food on hand if you're hypoglycemic. Or just a munchie. ;) (You should eat healthier, lovie. That has partially hydrogenated soy bean oil in it.)

Oh! Real quick-guess what? A bit of flower news-our Confederate Jasmine (I love that name!) is alive and well, and making the back porch smell heavenly at this very moment. We're trying to train it to go up the back porch and then on up the the top decks...wouldn't that be so wonderful? And our hydrangea bush is still blooming! Hehe, can you believe that? 'Course I already told you about that. Flowers just touch my heart. For years we've been trying to get them' thangs' to do something besides wither and fade. Or get hacked to death by well meaning Zorros. (I love those boys.) Mother dearest and Samuel have been so good about watering everything, and our dear plantlings have responded to their tender loving care. They are wonderful.
So...on to 'ze post...Here is the afore mentioned Mama, icing a cake. We gathered close by for this. :)
Paul, our wet wonder! Joe, watching the slip and slide show with concern from the porch one afternoon we all got together to play in the water. :)

I loved each of these so much I just had to post them all. :) Little girls are wonderful.
William & Wallace
"Bring me Wallace! With fries, if possible. Tater tots-just as good." Piranha.

(Carloie wasn't as impressed with our shin dig as we were)

Preparing to launch, continuing a grand and glorious tradition in Mortondom!
Off he slides...
Contented. ;)
Marfa Girl
John getting air time.
It was too fun having the girls and their babies over. :) Love you Rach! And Joey you are too beautiful. :D

(He's thinking- "I can't believe I fell for this. Bustin' my rear out there on that infernal plastic. Ah. Yes mother. That toe. A little to the left.")

"You will not believe what I have been through tonight!"
;) He actually loved it. I love you, Critter!
Woofie comes in from the water to ensure the icing of the cake is proceeding on as planned.

( It's too fun having "the neighbor kids" be your nephews and nieces at the same time. :)

Essie Cakes
Wally Bear, you are pure joy.

Ah, I'm so glad Summer's here. That afternoon was a blast.

Recently the G. family came up for a visit-we enjoyed the visit and were so blessed by all they did in the barn-thanks so much y'all, for the delightful visit and help. God bless each of you!
Kressy and Mrs. A. at church one morning. This was right before Isa arrived. (obviously;)

I could just kick myself for never getting all three of our showing mommies at Church together in the same picture. Alas. Anyway, here's two of them! Aren't they cute?And the dear R. family!! May God bless them. We had such a fabulous time with these sweet folks. They were coming through GA and we were so thrilled to meet them at last. (Hello, y'all! Hope to see you again soon! :)

What fun you've been having! We do that water slide stuff with a huge tarp and we launch the little ones too! :)

our photos of Esther are amazing. She is a beauty like her Momma!

We so enjoyed our time with you all - we were so encouraged and blessed. Hope we can see each other again soon!

Deanna for us all!
