Summer Tour

We had our first summer tour. A friend of mine from church Amy (www.amynjones.blogspot.com) and her  family. Her sister is from Houston and her folks were from up North. In all we had 4 adults and 8 kiddos. What a sweet family!When we give a tour we always serve chocolate chip cookies because what goes better with a cold glass of milk!What a good lookin family!!!
I love the picture below what clue do you see in the picture that these kiddos are from the "city"! So cute! It makes me laugh!!  Thanks Amy from sharing your family with us. Your mom, dad and sister were so nice and your kiddos were so well behaved! Thanks for coming out to visit!

The Bakers

Last week Tiana and I found a garage sale so of course we had to stop because my momma trained me well (and if any of you know my mother you totally will understand this statement!!). She found an easy bake oven and since it was only $1.00 it came home with us. Well, I didn't realize that, that would make our kitchen turn into a yummy bakery with Kenton and Tiana becoming the head bakers. We had cookies and cakes they were delish!!!!! And they even did a great job at cleaning up their mess. Because help me out moms don't you love when your kids are creative but then walk away expecting the maid (YOU) to clean it up. That drives me crazy!!! They did a great job!! YUM! YUM!

The Big One

We had Kyler's ONE Birthday on Friday night. All the Aunts, Uncles and cousins were invited. Uncle Alan decided he wanted to make sure he got into the spirit of things :)Aunt Jenny and Aunt Alicia came. Aunt Jenny got her the cutest little swimming suit and Aunt Alicia got her a little camera that made sounds that sounded like she was really taking pictures. She loved all her gifts.
Taryn loved helping her open gifts and cousin Payton enjoyed watching.All of Dan's siblings got her a little trike she loved it!!!Aunt Lorene always loves to kiss her face off and she is so good about letting her :)Tiana is always such a good help with Kyler she is an awesome big sister!! Over all we had a great party and still sit back in awe that it has been a year since she was born. WOW time does fly!!!

A new addition

We got a new used Semi last week for the farm just in time for wheat harvest.  Our neighbor Conner came down to help Kenton check it out. I can only imagine what that conversation must have been like. Enjoy your weekend!

Not A Typical Day

When I woke up this morning I didn't know how the day was going to unfold. I knew my good friend Donya and her boys were coming over for some girl talk and caffeine but, I didn't know that as they left another good friend Amy would call and wanted to drop by and then another good friend called to say her mom and sister were here from California and wanted to see the store and house and they were going to drop by! YEA!, I love having people over WELL at least when the house is pick up and my guests aren't  inclined to call SRS!! So the girls and I kicked it into high gear and cleaned like mad!! In fact, guest #2 Amy grabbed a rag and helped out(that is true love) Thanks Amy! Everything went great, good times were had by all. BUT, then other good friend Doug called (who works for an tractor implement company) and said we have a film crew here from Georgia and they want to do some interviewing/filming of some local farms for a promotional video would I be willing to talk with them on camera and show them around? (the milkman was out combining wheat). WHAT??? Needless to say they came and were soooo nice and everything went well and in the near future the farm and I will be on youtube I will keep you posted! Caroline the one on the right was the one that interviewed me! She was a true southern Georgia Peach. In fact Tiana wants to know how she can get an accent like that!Carlson was the camera man he was so nice also.Caroline even tried her hand at milking I guess if the video  making job doesn't work out you can always come and work for us!!  Our good friend Doug and Robyn on the left below were the ones that set the whole thing up. I hope I did you proud. Thanks for the not Typical day!! So, just remember when you get up and think its going to be a "normal" day hang on because you never know what life will throw at you.

So Handsome

My baby brother is getting married at the end of summer and he asked Kenton to be a groomsman. Kenton is so excited and of course we had to go and get fitted for his tux. He looked so grow up and so handsome!! I can't wait to see him to see him all duded up!!


 

Kyler's Doc

Yesterday Kyler went for her big one year check up! Dr. Patron came in the room saying he thought about us this weekend because he remembered last year he was called in to save her life and he did and we are forever grateful!!! He is our hero!! Her check went great she was in the 61%  and 71% tile for height and weight. She, in fact, grew 4 inches in the last 3 months. It is amazing the healing power of God we are so blessed. Thanks Dr. Patron for all you did and are doing for us. We love you!!

What a difference a year makes

A year ago this weekend Kyler Maine came into our lives. For the first 6 days we didn't know how long she would be with us. She spent her first 13 days in the hospital but God and His  healing power gave us a beautiful blessing. We are so blessed and thankful for this joy that was added to our family!!
