Birthday Boy and Baby Jesus

My little guy will be three on December 23rd.  Time flies! Because of the busyness of Christmas and my nephew’s birthday soon after Christmas, we always celebrate Eli’s birthday just a tad early.  Three year olds have FUN partying!

Our Weekend

What a lovely end to September!  Beautiful weather, great fun and good company. After a trip to the local Pumpkin Festival on Saturday, Steve and the kids headed to the back of our farm for a little fishing in the creek.  Mahayla made the catch of the day with this nice-looking bass.  It made a…
