Catching up...

My goodness the time is flying! I haven't even had hardly a minute to post! :)
This is  a "catch up" post!

Brad's puppy is settling in nicely, and has been named Bingley--he also got his first bath!
He's also getting his fair share of attention!
Isn't he the cutest???

He's also growing--he topped 6 lbs!

I tried something new this year...added aluminum sulfate to my hydrangeas...these are all picked from the same bush--I guess I didn't add it evenly--love the results anyway! :)

One of the kids snapped this sunset--aren't we blessed?

...Brad turned 17!

Bri got her hair cut...and we went to a park for her birthday

... she turned 20!

...we attended the wedding of a sweet friend

...we celebrated Father's Day!

And...we had a delightful afternoon with dear friends!
We are indeed blessed!
Our life is busy, and full--and we're thankful!
Hope you're enjoying your June before it's over!

What is one to say about June, the time of perfect young summer, the fulfillment of the promise of the earlier months, and with as yet no sign to remind one that its fresh young beauty will ever fade.

Happy Father's Day Honey!

I just had to make a post to thank my hubby for being such a great father!
He is a "hands on" kind of Dad!

He sacrifices much to put all he has into serving the Lord by being
a faithful father

We appreciate him so much!
We are blessed to have him as ours!
Happy Father's Day Dear!
Watch ye, stand fast in the faith, quit you like men, be strong

Happy 20th Bri!

I can hardly believe I'm saying daughter is 20 today! {gulp}
I am so blessed to have a daughter!

She's such a wonderful companion for me--a real friend!
She has been blessed with so many talents!
Always our little princess

Always "up to something"

We pray God's blessings on you Bri!
Have a wonderful birthday, and a wonderful new year of life serving
the Savior!

We love you!

...that our daughters may be as corner stones, polished after the similitude of a palace:

Happy #17 BRAD!

Happy 17th Brad!

Do you remember what you were doing 17 years ago today??? I DO! I was welcoming my son into the world!

Always an adventurer, this little boy is growing into a fine young man

He is fun loving and brings us much joy!

We are blessed to have him as part of our family

We love you Brad, and look forward to seeing God work in your life as
you live for Him!
Have the very happiest of birthdays!

I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.

An Honor...

We were blessed to have the honor of hosting two veterans
at our home on Memorial Day
Our very own "Pop" and our neighbor Jack (whose wife also joined him)
We really appreciate their service to our country!
And, we appreciated their company for dinner too. :)

The guys played some carpetball

Guess who else was happy? (Chippy loves Uncle Jack!)

Hope you had a nice day too!

It's a Boy!

We've had a busy weekend around here with parties, chalk art son's
new Puppy!

He is a cute little Cavalier King Charles Spaniel - ruby colored.
If you've never had one--I feel sorry for you! :)

Isn't that some face? I haven't weighed him yet...
but he's probably around 3 lbs (I first said 4 but my mom said "no way")
she's usually right :)

Everyone loves him--who wouldn't!?

He's actually a rescue like our other dog Chippy--
his family loved and wanted him, but they had emergency
circumstances that prevented it

They originally called him Butterball
But, my son is changing it to Bingley
(You Pride and Prejudice fans will figure that right out!)
