This blog is simply the story about my little life
with my sweet family that the Lord has blessed me with
and the day in, day out things that we do.
It basically is my online diary/photo album of our life.
I'm glad you're here!

Pool day!

 
I had such an amazing time at the city pool in August.
 I met my two daughter-in-laws (Brittany and Rachelle) there with my sweet grandson, Ridley. Megan couldn't make it because sweet Caspian was just a few weeks old.
 I packed my towel, a book to read and lunch and met the girls there.
 Rachelle is 8 months pregnant and looks glorious!
Brittany is such a cute little mamma! She is taking Ridley up the stairs to go down the slide.
We heard screaming all the way down the slide....
....but they were screams of joy, he loved it!
Now it's Grammie's turn!
I've got to admit it...Grammie was scared! But, when my precious Ridley asked me to go, I was not about to say no!
It was pure bliss! I LOVED it!
I had so much fun!
I got into the hot-tub to relax a bit and started realizing how happy I was being there again.
I thought these pool days were behind me and now I realize it's all starting over again and I will be able to do this for many, many more years!!!
It was so nice to lay in the sun and realax and watch the girls plays with Ridley in the water.
Then they all came over and we ate lunch.
Mmmm!
This is the life!
Now it's time for Ridley and I to play in the sand!
We played with trucks and then in the water area.
Me and my shadow! This is so much fun!
What a happy day! This grammie business is awesome!!!

Fall in the Farm House

 I am getting ready to take down my fall decorations and put up Halloween, so wanted to quickly post these today!
 I love fall and I love fall decorating!
 On the porch I have a really fun little vignette. It looks like a country store!
 I am loving the antique grocery cart that I found last year.
 I finally found a pair of cute little wooden dutch clogs. I heard they bring good luck if they are set out by the front door. I am not superstitious, but I like fun stuff like this.
 A fall table-setting.

 I love my new Harvest sign made from galvanized letters. I found it at Hobby Lobby.
 Cozy Autumn kitchen.
 My display on top of the pie safe.
 I have a few new goodies this year including the buggy eyed owl.
 My windowsill display.
 This little antique metal wheelbarrow is a new find this year. I love it!
 This years centerpiece box display has a happy greeting for you!
 Fall display in the alcove.
 A vintage tray hung by black rick-rack and two pheasant figurines.
 More fun fall goodies.
Happy Fall Ya'll!

The faith of an acorn

One of my favorite things about Autumn is collecting acorns. I have loved them since I was a child. We have them all over our property, but I still cannot resist gathering a few and displaying them in our home.
With these scary and uncertain times right now, it's a great reminder to me that from a small acorn seed a beautiful oak grows to become a giant strong tree that has weathered the storm. It doesn't worry about tomorrow, it just lives a glorious life today with the purpose of giving shade, providing food for the squirrels and homes for the birds. It beautifully withstands the seasons even suffering sometimes until that one day when it's time on this earth is over. That is how my faith must be.

"He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and it is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit." Jeremiah 17:8

Mr. Precious is here!!!!!

 I would like to introduce you to my precious new grandson, Finley Stewart!
 He arrived 10 days early on 9/13 and weighed 7 lbs 7 oz and was 22 inches long!
We had quite a scare with Mamma's health which ended in an emergency C-section. Praise the Lord both mom and baby are fine!
 This was the first moment I held the little guy, it was love at first sight!
Rachelle is a trooper and Grayson is such a great support. I love this picture of her resting while he holds Finley.
They are so happy! They have been home for two weeks now and everyone is adjusting wonderfully!
I thank the Lord so much for this incredible blessing of this darling baby boy. My heart is so full!

"For You formed my inward parts; You knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in Your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them." Psalm 139:13-16

Garden party.....

 Come with me to my garden for a garden party!
 It's a lovely summer evening...
 ...for a special little dinner in the garden with my dear friend.
The table is set and dinner is ready, but waiting in the kitchen for my company to arrive.
 We decided to wear hats and sundresses to make it fun! Oh, there's her car, she's here!
 My sweet and fun friend, Angie!
 We had chicken salad, garlic bread and cookies for dessert.
 Angie and I go way back! Our kids were friends in kindergarten!
We are both working women and empty nesters in long-term marriages trying to figure out this next phase of our lives.
 I'm so thankful for my dear friend! We had a lovely evening...
...then all the sudden someone arrived wearing a hat wanting to join us...
 ....oh my gosh, it was my husband! He's so funny! He cracked us both up so much!
I love simple fun times like this!
