Ornaments, Tradition, & Tapestries

When Cheyenne was about 3, a wonderful lady shared about buying ornaments for her grandchildren to hang on the "cousins tree" in her house.  Each Christmas the cousins would all come over and were given a new ornament to go on the tree and would then decorate the tree with ornaments from years past.  I… Continue reading Ornaments, Tradition, & Tapestries

Pumpkin Pickin’ and Memory Makin’

This past July I sweated profusely as I put 30 pumpkin seedlings in the ground.  I didn't mind the heat or the sweat because in my mind I could see my children, my nieces, and little cousins picking pumpkins from a pumpkin patch not from a bin or pile at the store, but from a… Continue reading Pumpkin Pickin’ and Memory Makin’

For The Love of Bunnies

About a week ago, I rounded the house to find our dog, Duckie, sitting with purpose on the sidewalk giving me a look that said, "You need to deal with this."  As I walked closer I spotted the littlest brown bit of furry cuteness sitting at her feet.  I picked it up and was surprised… Continue reading For The Love of Bunnies

My Tuesday

I am not really sure where the day went, but it went.  The morning began with my quiet time and yoga, as do most days.  Oddly enough the house has stayed picked up and clean without much effort- I can't explain it but I am grateful.  Maybe that is why the day seemed to move… Continue reading My Tuesday

All That Glitters…

All that glitters may not be gold, but it sure is pretty!  Which is good, because the floors in my house glitter, the table glitters, my laundry glitters, and the interior of the truck glitters. It seems that when you work with glitter it just gets everywhere, kind of like sand at the beach.  As… Continue reading All That Glitters…

Wall’s Family Farm- A Great Place for Family Fun

I am one of those who likes to give Thanksgiving its due.  I don't take down the pumpkins or the garlands until Thanksgiving has arrived and we are stuffed full of good food.  But once that happens- we roll into Christmas with gusto.  First stop on the Christmas parade is the tree. Each year it… Continue reading Wall’s Family Farm- A Great Place for Family Fun

The Dallas Farmer’s Market

Yesterday was a fun family outing.  The kids love to go to the Dallas Farmer's Market.  It is such a paradox to me that these country kids like to go in to "the big city" and go to the Farmer's Market.  But it is fun.  If you haven't ever gone to the Dallas Farmer's Market… Continue reading The Dallas Farmer’s Market

What Did You Do?

When you have four kids you get asked a lot of questions. I am very proud of my children and  so often people now ask me what we did to get such great kids.  This question is especially asked of my older daughters who are now 19 & 17.  It seems that respectful youth with… Continue reading What Did You Do?
