Is it Just Me…

Tracy / January 31, 2013

or is this weather just odd? This week, aside from the rain, the temperatures have been absolutely perfect! We’ve been re-painting furniture (thank you for the dresser, Jan!)… Courtney is an expert with spray paint!! and working in our yard. (This is a bulb from our 12 disciples plant…I’ve never seen a plant bulb this big!) The forsythia is blooming.…

Yesterday’s Storms

Tracy / January 31, 2013

We’re feeling incredibly grateful that yesterday’s storms only brought in clouds and rain. We could do without those nasty tornado warnings. …and if I could just keep these temps a little longer…..

My Hard Working Man…

Tracy / January 31, 2013

Family Weddings

Tracy / January 24, 2013

Lazy Mornings

Tracy / January 23, 2013

Perhaps, one of my favorite things in life is when the children pile into our bed early, each morning. I admire Jacob’s balancing skills. Zoe, our young kitty, not so much.

Sickness and Snow

Tracy / January 20, 2013

This year, has been a little rough from the start. On this night, my entire family is sick. The flu has apparently made it’s appearance. A friend called it a “Lamdemic”. 😀 Some are now recovering. Some are just beginning to sniffle. Each week has been filled with pain, but also filled with joy. We’ve had friends pour out love…

Pinterest Projects

Tracy / January 20, 2013

Woohoo! I found a winning Pinterest project. This one was just a little toothpaste on the front headlight to clean them. Check out the left from the right. I would say this one is a keeper! (Thank you Courtney, for trying this idea out for me!)
