Just wanted to post a couple of pics of Miss Ellie.....
She's a little missionary in her own back yard.
I wish I could get back into blogging, I really miss it.

My kids crack me up, I so love watching them play. Listening to their interaction with one another. Laughing with them.

...of all that is around me....
The things I hope I never take for granted.
The sweetness of it all.
I choose to live a life of thankfulness....even in the difficult times.
To be grateful.
To be thankful.
To be content.
To find Joy in each day.
Oh how I love this little home.
The cozy, the warm, the love, the laughter......look around you
for a minute (if your at home!) - pick one thing and smile because of it...
the snow. Such precious wonder.......
A glorious sunset.
I pray I never, never, EVER take one
God does a pretty good job, doesn't He?
I cannot believe I get to enjoy this view each and everyday...
Please, precious Mom reading this - don't waste these sweet
times with your little ones......don't always look for your
'me' time, stop all your busyness - and be there for your
babies. Don't complain about how hard you have it and wish
your life were different.....
SAVOR each moment.
Cherish each day.
NONE of us are guaranteed tomorrow.
I speak from experience, I used to be that kind of mom.....
They make me laugh each and everyday
(even when they're stinkers!)

Do you cherish all that is around you?
Do you live knowing that at any moment......your life could change in the blink of an eye?
Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
I want to live each and every day savoring all that is around me.
As I stared at this photo this morning, my heart was overflowing.
...my best friend - this precious man that God has given
me whom words alone cannot express my thankfulness for him...
...the joy of sharing laughter...
...the beauty of the sunlight on a warm Fall day...
(have I mentioned how much I LOVE the Fall....don't even get me going there!)
...the beauty of the trees around us....
...remembering the singing of all the birds in those trees...
...the PRECIOUS friends that hosted us and shared such
beautiful hospitality with us......
And yet, I can go there too......to that place of self-pity, of anger, of all
those feelings and emotions that can so quickly come upon me.....
but, but, but!
I don't have to stay there!!!!!
That is when I am humbled, to get on my knees and know
that I am nothing.
He is my everything.
wait for it...
waaaaait for it:
For out of the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks.

*DA DA DUUUUUUUMMM...
And we, having sweet little honeybees that we call our own
(6 hives to be exact)
needed this fine contraption to share some of their honey goodness....
Ready to tackle the hives with her dad.....
Seriously cool stuff here.
This knife heats up and removes the wax off the frame
That, my friends, is gold......
..some of the wax....
...then the frames go into the extractor, and get spun around
...here it is, here it is....wait for it....say it with me....
**beautiful wild raw honey**
....it just wouldn't be right if we couldn't chew on some of
The beautiful end result !
This actually isn't' much - next year we hope to get WAAAAY more.
We were only able to get honey off 2 of our hives this year.
Oh my WORD, how I love this little home!
I want to live the rest of my days here.
(it even comes complete with a chocolate Lab on front porch!)
Very. Very cool.
The main man behind it all.
My hard working handsome dude....oh how I love this guy.....
