Latley ...

We celebrated Cow Appreciation Day by dressing up as cows and getting a free meal (any chicken sandwich, a drink AND waffle fries). Awesome.

Eat more chicken!   

This was just sitting on the register? Creepy. 

We went up to Grandma Jeans beautiful cabin for the Porter family reunion. 70 degree weather? Yes please. I realized I only take pictures of the tots. Mike and I aren't as fun to look at. Have you ever seen a more hansom little boy? I think not.

Walking with Uncle Ben.

Redneck pinata- Get a bunch of saw dust, throw candy in it, then send the kids after it. This is always a fun part of the reunion that my Aunt Linda does. This is Clark and his game face.

Then we played minute to win it. See that speedster in the far right kicking everyones trash? Yeah, that's my mom.

Mike went home when the reunion ended, but I stayed up with my mom and younger brothers and sister, and my sister in law and her kiddos. And Grandma Jean of course. First time that Mike and I have been apart for more than like 12 hours. We missed each other. And my mom rolled her eyes at me.

There is something great about being in the mountains with no TV, computer or video games. When I wake up in the morning and the only thing on my agenda is read a book, or take a walk, or make a bracelet, or play with Lincoln and Stella.

There is also something great about being home, being back with the hubbs, and sleeping in my own squishy bed.

This is Stella working so hard on beading her own bracelet. She did such a good job, I held the string for her and she would turn the bead around and concentrate so hard on getting it in. It probably took her a full minute to put each individual one on the string, and she was so proud of the finished product.

Cherry face.

We did some quilting. Lincoln is the master.

Lately I've been watching this. Wednesday and Thursday nights I am always entertained.
We also re-did part of our wall. One of our picture frames in the middle fell off months ago, and we finally got around to putting something else up. This is the only picture I could find of before. Excuse the prego.



What do you think?


  1. I love your wall! It's perfect! And Stella has such a happy happy face! I want to pinch it. I love you.

  2. Your wall looks beautiful. Love the pics of the cabin, I'm missing it already.

  4. I am jealous of your pear.
