Sometimes He brings us people.

Someone asked me the other day, “Aren’t you so tired of working on the house?” They weren’t the first or the tenth person to ask me a question like this. I get asked this so much that at first it makes me think, “Am I missing something? Should I be miserable?” The answer to all these questions is “Absolutely not!” Are you kidding me? I […]

We had the privilege of making these pine boxes for a local church. They are in the process of moving into their first building and the theme of their children’s ministry is “at the farm.” These trusty toolboxes will house art supplies for all the precious little souls who will walk into that place! My littles were pretty partial to […]

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas! Some of the highlights of our Christmas Eve were celebrating this little cutie…can’t believe she’s 2!! decorating cookies with Aunt Kim (an annual tradition) & worshipping Jesus with family & friends.

Tonight after bath time, we got in our Christmas jammies & headed out to spread some kindness. We left a goody bag at the ol’ Redbox with some popcorn, candy & a few bucks for the next renter. This picture cracks me up! I was standing out in the rain, (can you say yucky day!) trying to get everyone to look at […]

The kids are really missing Daddy right now because he’s been working such long days over at the house. This morning we slept in, made chocolate chip pancakes & caught up on some much needed cuddles…just what the doctor ordered! Grady is getting so big but moments like this remind me that he’s still our baby! At lunch, I told the […]

Our kindness mission today was to buy someone’s lunch & we thought who better than Daddy & all of the hard workers up at the house? This week has been pretty lonely with lots of unexpected, under the house, (can’t see any progress) kind of work. But today was exciting!! Windows are going in, the garage doors went in & all […]

My kiddos spent the morning coloring & cutting out this sweet little nativity from Made By Joel. Here’s the link, in case you think your little ones might enjoy it too! He has lots of other amazing free printables & if your kids are as craft-crazy as mine, you’re always looking for something new! Today, our kindness mission was to bless […]

Yesterday, I fell on a giant rock under our house & bruised my tailbone. Yes…you read that right! How can one be so clumsy? This is the culprit to my hiney mishap… Yep…it was as painful as it looks! A big shout out to everyone who offered tips & sympathy! I was thinking this morning, as I was icing my […]
