Popping on here to say hey! This Summer has been AMAZING and the fastest ever for me. :D Happy days!
Painting! Marth and Tayte's little home is in the works and looking precious! (we have blue and white paint on us...of course.) Painting with your sister is the best. Especially when it's on her future home! Aww...I can hardly wait to show you pictures of their place!
Mums has been sewing! She has made THE most beautiful summer dress, eyelet, white, collared. Mes wants ones too.
*John with Bird Dog and France. Love seeing my boys ride.
Daddy and the boys have been doing carpentry, and the farming is due to start back up in August! Hooray!! Everyone is so excited about getting their paws in the dirt again. The land is rested now, and Lord willing, soon we'll plow and plant, and Daddy's rows of green will be in straight lines down the garden rows.
I love walking past Mom and Dad's room and seeing the wind blow the curtains, and seeing Mama's Bible out on the bed stead. She is such a wonderful mother-such a lover of us, such a lover of God...
Actually it is time to cut-as-little-as-possible. (It's so fantasic when they have a little fluff on top!)
See? In this picture he really doesn't even need a haircut. Just a snidge of a trim. I've been having a blast cutting the guys' hair and now have a passion for the cutting of manly locks. There is the potential for great rejoicing, or great wreckage. Laughter or tears. Making or breaking.
Hair is important, my friends. Grow and trim with care.
Please ignore the dust under that piece of furniture. And under the desk. And also what appears to be a potatoe under the desk. You did not just see that.
And Sir Kendall.
He looks like he's a senator during his 4th consecutive winning campaign, walking though the supporters and news reporters... "You know, Todd, he has such confidence. He knows he's got this one in the bag. And I think his supporters feel his determination and commitment. Back to you at the studio..."
He. is. so. fluffy.
Martha's quilts are priceless treasures. Each one so full of love.
Happy Birthday, Essie Cakes!!!!!!
Here's the special girl and her Papa and Mama and Elizabeth Rose.
We love you, little girl. So much.
(We missed Brittany -she was out of town that weekend, so...this just means we'll have to do it again! ;) )
God is amazing.
Here are us kids, after playing on our homemade slip and slide. It's actually more like bungee jumping, just with out the elastic cord and harness.
After we were certain of muscle and rib bruising, we decided to go to Reed Bingham for an impromptu lake party with everybody! We picked up root beers and hitched up the boat and had a blast.
Mums and Par Par and Auntie brought supper over after a bit and it was so nice, all sitting there together, tired and wet and happy, with BBQ and little babies and the sunset.
(silhouettes are so cool!)
Although dolls were present, the food was still meaty and beastly, and all the guys enjoyed it. Daddy just went on later about how pretty the table was.
Those almonds were so cool, by the way, soaked like that.
Well, gotta run, lovelies! Oh, earlier this morning, you should have seen it...the mist was soft and like tulle, stranded around everything until the sun came up. It was breathtaking. It looks like today is going to be summer-time golden and green.
Happy day to you!
