Full House!


So Pamela and Chloe have been here for several days, and I am full to overflowing at having all my kids and grandkids near. And today, all four grandkids are here in my house.  I can’t even tell you how wonderful that is! 

We went to the beach yesterday, and had such a wonderful time.  It was just us girls – Me, Dan, Pam, Emily, friends Melody and Katie, Mel’s daughter Nicole, Arulai, Selah, Chloe…And Titus!  The weather was remarkable and the kids were great! The beach was basically deserted, so we had a super easy time keeping watch over the kids.  It was so nice enjoying the day with so many of my favorite people!

Bill has been back to the north again; this time he did get caught in some weather. And got sick. But he saw some beautiful scenery, made some good money, and saw more of our beautiful country.  I was more than ready for him to come home, which he did in due time! 



Today is an off day for us – we actually get to stay home. Well, almost all of “we”.  I am meeting Bill to help him with a photography job this evening. Again, I’m not wild about taxidermy photography, but I am wild about my husband, so I’m excited about going with him. I told him it was almost like a date!

Saturday is our town’s “Lone Star 1st Saturday” and Bill and I will be back with a booth of his fine art prints.  I love doing this! I mean, it’s great making sales, but I also enjoy our community, and this event particularly! There will be craft vendors, farmers and their wares, home bakeries (my sisterall kinds of things! And music – local musicians on porches and in the community center yard. It’s just a lovely day, and I love it!!


Well, I’d better get off and go get ready for some taxidermy!

God bless your day!

             I’m so glad you had such a good day at the beach with your loveys.  There’s just something precious about having all your grandbaby chicks in one basket! I am really looking forward to tomorrow and hope you make some great sales.  The art is so beautiful, I can’t imagine your not selling all of them!

    What fun to get to spend a day all together at the beach with your grandkids!  Beautiful photos!  I love that sunset print!  I really like that old church picture. what a fun place to do a photo shoot!

  6. HA! Be glad you only had to photograph it!! I’ve had to sit by and watch/help Mountain Man DO IT! Or where you doing step by step photography while he did it? I am assuming you are doing the finished project!I am so jealous! Its wonderful you had all the grands around you like that. What a wonderful day at the beach!!!!

    @victoriantomboy – Oh, definitely photographing the finished product!! I surely couldn’t handle the process, I don’t think!

  8. @pettybunch – well, I used to help skin out deer when Mountain Man had a deer processing unit one season. I grew up around it. He tried taxidermy just a few times. Its so TEDIOUS!! Glad he hasnt had the desire to pick it back up!

    Your grand children are just precious dolls!  So glad you’ve had time to spend with your little Chloe.  I love the picture of the old church. Or maybe it was a school?  Anyway, wonderful choice!
