A little sunshine


Today was 85 degrees.
Hard to believe it was down to 35 earlier this week. and we wore winter coats and hats on our walk to school.
While little bubba and I waited to pick up big bubba from school we enjoyed the sunshine.


Out came a couple of freezy pops (I don't know if that's what they are really called, but that's what we call them around here).


Daddy's old pick up truck.

and a whole lot of dirt!

Thursday's Dining Room Centerpiece


Since we don't have an eat in kitchen all our meals happen around the dining room table. I've also found that the whole house feels tidy (even though it isn't) when the dining room table is clean. But when your 7 year old decides to construct an unmovable Lincoln Log ranch at the dining room table while having his breakfast before school, you have no hope of a tidy feeling house today! I was given explicit instruction not to touch it, and to closely watch the other set of little hands that go swinging about around here. We might be eating dinner on our laps by the time this creation is complete.

No. 1



Hi there! Welcome to my blog! I've found that I'm not quite clever enough to come up with pithy Facebook updates, so I decided a blog might be the way to go. My life sounds a little like the lyrics to a country song -pretty simple, not perfect, but exactly where I want to be. I married my highschool sweetheart and live in a small Midwestern town where I fill my days trying to create a cozy, loving home and make sweet memories with the 3 boys in my life. My hope is to carve out a cheerful place in the vast blogosphere to capture the small things that make life special. Thanks so much for stopping by!
