Welcome to Our Christmas

 Selah together Christmas Eve day… Resting up for our annual night of  undeniable laughter and crazy fun… UNO. Uno has been a  Christmas Eve tradition in our home for as long as I can remember… Although the ‘rules’ have changed a bit over the years, the last one holding any cards has to put their…

So Here’s The Plan…

We have made a conscious effort to Selah some today. In years past we have hurried and scurried and it has been a very, very much needed change in our home…. Aren’t churches in the snow the most beautiful? And just in case you’re wondering if  I am missing the snow… that would be a…

This December We Will Stop

I felt like the Lord gave me an idea for the month of December. I’m so excited to share with you all.  No doubt in November there was tons of public thankfulness flowing with all the ways to ‘Countdown to Thanksgiving”…whether on Facebook, Instagram or a personal blog.   It was so beautiful to see…

they valued liberty more

Happy 4th of July from miss Ruby Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

But they can say they tried. A…

Graham refused to put matching jammies on…. such a party-pooper kind of guy {haha} Come on Graham- get…

Mr. Nehemiah Judson

Many have asked how Mr. Nehemiah is doing.  I thought today would be as good a day as any to give you all a brief update on our adorably handsome most recent addition. When he arrived three months ago, he was: Pretty scared. Kind of angry. Definitely confused. Basically dazed. We didn’t know what to…

The Hunt

This year Dw and I will have celebrated  35 Christmas’ married. Every year {with only 2 exceptions – for medical reasons} we have gone to cut down our Christmas trees. The tradition is one that we can’t miss. It’s just too stinkin’ fun. This year we wandered up to Flagstaff… we’d tried to get a…

34 Years Ago Today

Thirty-four years ago today Dw and I stood before about a hundred friends and family and promised to spend the rest of our lives together. Little did we know the bumps, turns and unexpected events that the ensuing years would hold that bliss filled day many years ago.   But what a ride it’s been!…
