I love Christmas time- I have a desire to bake, cook, clean, decorate, and wrap gifts tied up with lots of ribbon that sparkles that I am just unable to suppress. I do get some help from the kids, but mostly its just me and I love it. Tony enjoys my creations, especially those emerging… Continue reading Simple Beauty- Christmas Decorating on the Farm

What better way to spend a snowy day than curled up with you dad napping. I don't guess you ever get too old. I hope not. Cheyenne is 17 and Savannah is 15. There aren't that many years left with these two at home. Good thing there are two more behind them.
My great grandmother, Mamaw, always said that if the snowed stayed on the ground for 3 days it would come again. Well, she was right again. We had snow about 2 weeks ago that stayed for more than 3 days. You might say that it wore it's welcome out! Last night we got about 8… Continue reading Mamaw was right!
