flowers were planted

yard picked up

we were heading in for the night

Daddy was putting the finishing touches on the lawn

and "bummer"... one got away!

one small rock, thrown from the mower, and we had this...

hoping to have it fixed very soon, it's how I get our little people around :)
happy day to you all


We enjoyed our Memorial Day planting a few beautiful flowers around our Laura's tree.
It was a perfect family day spent together, not doing much else :)

...after the parade.

Our town celebrates the holiday weekend with "Wild West Days"

We enjoyed the annual parade through down town.

There were bands, princesses, fire & rescue, and much more.

And of course lots of candy!

But what followed the parade this year was also very "entertaining"

My boys entertained each other (and us) playing outdoors together!

Hard to believe we are in need of some rain, today was beautiful and sunny, and not a cloud in the sky.

Yet some how our little boys did this....

Clothes were only worn in the beginning... and for that, I guess I'm glad :)
May you find yourself having a happy Memorial Weekend, enjoying the simple things in life!
(Like our boys!!!)

Many blessings to you all.

color me happy :)

Our birthday celebration for our little Laura was topped off with a
beautiful reminder of God's promises to each one of us...

"Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful."

Laura Grace.

Today Laura Grace is celebrating her 5th birthday in heaven with Jesus.

And we rejoice too...
"...For the joy of the Lord is your strength" Nehemiah 8:10

Thankful for our HOPE. Humbled & grateful to have Laura as part of our family. Rejoicing, knowing He holds our angel baby until we are all together in heaven.

It is an honor and priviledge to be her Momma & Daddy / family... Laura holds a place in each of our hearts - that has forever changed us... We are better to have loved this special baby girl.

Happy Birthday Baby Laura. We love You, sweet girl & miss you everyday!!!
We will see you soon, and hold you again Sweet baby!


Momma, Daddy, Michlyn, Erin, Jace, & Scout

"Every good and perfect gift is from above" James 1:17
