Fun at the Family Farm

1 Chronicles 17:16b
"Who am I, O Lord God and what is my family that You have brought me this far?"

I spend most of my days in awe that the Lord has blessed me the way He has. When I look at my family I am so humbled and grateful for them that I cannot believe my God loves me so. I hope I teach my kids and grandchildren to be ever thankful. We spent the day yesterday at our family's farm having a fish fry to celebrate Daddy's birthday (God loved me so much He sent me two special men to be fathers to me, that or He knew I would require more work than most!). We had such a great time eating, fellowshipping and riding four-wheelers and rangers. One of my sisters was sick and unable to be there and one of my brothers-in-law couldn't make it. They were missed.
Here are a few pics from our day:
Gigi and Connor checking things out.

Jodi and Savannah - my girls are so beautiful.

Mama, Jennifer and me.

PawPaw and Connor. I am sure Connor was asking for the millionth time, "Is it time to ride the 4-wheeler yet?"

Connor and Anthony. Notice Connor's "I'm going fast" face!

Connor "driving" Uncle Jeremy in the ranger.

Graham, who probably walked five miles around the barn pointing and clapping at everything.

The fish cookers- Jon and Richard- and the birthday boy!
We are so thankful Richard is home from Afghanistan. He couldn't get over how much Graham had grown in six months. I couldn't get over how much their heads looked alike!
Christine obviously was not informed the party was in the barn! But she is precious and is now dubbed the "Barn Diva."
The kids were sure glad when it was time to eat.

And no party would be complete if the girls had not given someone a makeover! Josh was willing to take one for the team and I agree with Richard - Josh looks like John Belushi as the Samurai Chef from SNL!!!!
We had a great time and look forward to lots more good times on the farm.


  1. So much fun!! Beautiful family. You are truly blessed :-)

  2. We did have a great time yesterday! Can't wait to make many more memories at our family farm :)

  3. Oooh! I love the new blog look.

  4. Thanks for praying. Tell everyone you know to pray. This flood just keeps getting worse each time the news is on. I know what you mean - we gave up watching the news for lent and started back. Tim is a junkie...I could live without it and be happy. I'm sending you the signature link. It's super easy. Have fun with it. We need to plan an phone chat soon. :-) Blessings!

  5. I hate I missed it... especially over this yucky stomach bug. Looks like everyone had a great time, I know my kids and Richard did.

  6. Girl! Some days all I do is rebuke and chastise...or judge! It's when I start my day at the foot of Jesus that I am able to serve Him. Boy how long it took me to learn that lesson and how quickly I seem forget it! (And when I do forget it I am in a downward spiral so fast I don't know how I got there.)

    There's a special place in God's heart and in heaven for teachers...don't you ever forget it. I'd be in jail!!! (Seriously...jail.)

    Have a happy and wonderful Mother's Day. Enjoy your beautiful family. :-)
