Today our oldest turns 22!!!  Where has time gone?  You have always been such an inspiration to me....showing me how to go ahead and enjoy life no matter what....always spending time with your brothers and sisters....playing music and singing.....coming right through jaw surgery.....always taking time to give hugs.....inspiring others to live out their dream if at all possible!  Now that you've moved out on your own, we miss you like crazy but wouldn't want to stand in your way for anything!  We love you and hope you have a very "Happy Birthday"!!!

A little bit of what we're up to these days.....

I feel like such a slacker ...... my blog is way behind but not because there's nothing to tell.....haha!  Never a dull moment around here....trust me :)  I have had so much fun learning to use my camera and then our computer had to go and get sick!  Hopefully for now we are up and running again......wanted to share a little bit of our latest adventure with y'all.  We are actually adding onto the house.....Yes, you heard me right!!!....isn't that exciting?  It will be SOOO worth every bit of hard work and all the red mud that it involves:)   I am thrilled beyond words!!! Hope you enjoy the pics :)

Have a great rest of the week :)

Great Advice!!!

I found this simply too good not to share.....go ahead and take the time to read it!  You will be glad you did :)

Old Farmer's Advice:

Your fences need to be horse-high, pig-tight and bull-strong.

Keep skunks and bankers at a distance.

... Life is simpler when you plow around the stump.

A bumble bee is considerably faster than a John Deere tractor.

Words that soak into your ears are whispered... not yelled.

Meanness don't jes' happen overnight.

Forgive your enemies; it messes up their heads.

Do not corner something that you know is meaner than you.

It don't take a very big person to carry a grudge.

You cannot unsay a cruel word.

Every path has a few puddles.

When you wallow with pigs, expect to get dirty.

The best sermons are lived, not preached.

Most of the stuff people worry about ain't never gonna happen anyway.

Don't judge folks by their relatives.

Remember that silence is sometimes the best answer.

Live a good, honorable life... Then when you get older and think back, you'll enjoy it a second time.

Don 't interfere with somethin' that ain't bothering you none.

Timing has a lot to do with the outcome of a Rain dance.

If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.

Sometimes you get, and sometimes you get got.

The biggest troublemaker you'll probably ever have to deal with, watches you from the mirror every mornin'.

Always drink upstream from the herd.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lotta that comes from bad judgment.

Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier than puttin' it back in.

If you get to thinkin' you're a person of some influence, try orderin' somebody else's dog around..

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply.
Speak kindly. Leave the rest to God.
Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight,
he'll just kill you.

Have a great weekend!!!
