Recently, we got new carpet at our church and we were able to make some changes around the place. I had the fun job of sprucing up the youth/multi-purpose room in the back of the church. I felt like knock-off version of Joanna from Fixer Upper (sort of...not really!).
"Daddy, take a picture of me smelling the pepper!"
Late spring/early summer, he planted corn and watermelon.
Our salads have been so fresh and yummy...
The garden has had an abundance of kale and peppers. The tomatoes are starting to come like crazy now.
When he started gardening, I promised him I'd learn to can his produce. I never doubted that he'd have a successful garden, I just didn't expect it to yield enough worth canning. I was wrong.
I've canned my first very small batch of diced tomatoes...
I was nervous, but these little half-pints weren't too hard and I think I'll be excited and prepared when he brings in the next load of tomatoes!
We have never had the privilege of living in the same town as our extended family. Actually, that's the main reason why this ole' blog got its start. In 2007, I had just become a mom for the first time and our sweet Ava Grace was the first grandchild for both sides of the family. Most of my posts were all about AG. As technology progressed, I began to share more and more through texting. Each Sunday, for at least 4 years but maybe even longer, I have taken a pic of my girls and sent it out to all of our extended family. * I rarely miss a Sunday* It's the traditional Sunday Pic as we like to call it.
Here are the Sunday Pics from May and June:
I'm nostalgic and these pics fill my need to preserve memories and capture my growing and changing little girls! I hope we can keep them up for a long time! Maybe my girls will pass the tradition on to their families--probably using some new-fangled camera or whatever! :)

EDY: Mom, can we watch ELF after lunch?
ME: You betcha!
I've had a few photoshoots!
I have been planning ahead and have a post ready to publish every day this week! Stay-tuned!
