I've started a new blog....

Hi everyone! I've started a new blog on wordpress called The Diary of a Happy Housewife. It was just an idea I had and I'll be doing all my blogging from my iphone so wordpress is easier. Go on over and check it out! I hope you enjoy it :)

Family Picture

The nurses took a few pictures for Brandon and Amanda. ❤ Today they are making the final arrangements for little Waylon's body. Watching my brother call funeral homes today made my heart hurt for him even more. Thankfully a nurse offered to make phone calls and help him find one. Please keep Brandon and Amanda and Keylan and Ashlynn in your prayers today especially. They really appreciate and need them.

In The Arms of Jesus

My brother Brandon and his wife Amanda went to the hospital this morning for the birth of their son Waylon Brantley. There were some complications and baby Waylon has gone to be with Jesus. Please pray for them and their daughters Keylan and Ashlynn, as well as the rest of the family.

Goodbye Spring!

So Spring is over down here, and since I took a lot of pictures and never shared them, I thought I'd do a Spring wrap-up post of my favorite ones.... plus I promised Marci I'd post some pictures of the kids... so here they are! ;)
Provy... Also known as Miss Cheeks


One of the new calves.. it was tiny!! And yes, my sisters ARE beautiful! ;)

 I love these two... I mean THREE. *squeal*

Freshly picked blackberries... brings back lots of good childhood memories! =) 

Brason & Caramel the pet calf. 

Mmmmm Jasmine! 

Well I said he was a pet didn't I? ;) So far he's made it all the way into the kitchen once. He thinks he's a dog. haha.  Isn't Provy ADORABLE??!!

Practicing three legged racing. =)

The new pig... her name is Bacon... so yeah.

Three pretty sisters. =) Brianna just turned 14!!

On a different note, please keep Emily and Amanda in your prayers for their pregnancies. They are both doing very well so far praise the Lord! Ben and Em found out recently that they are having a GIRL!! =) Her name is Georgia Rose. I got to see her on a 3D and 4D sonogram and she's already adorable! =) I can't wait to meet her and Brandon and Amanda's little Waylon. The family is growing rapidly!! =)

Brother's and Sisters

One of the greatest blessings of living here is that I get to spend lots of time with my younger brothers and sisters!! I've gotten to stay with them a few times while Mom and Dad had to go somewhere, and it's been SO much fun! =) After 3 years away, they've all changed a lot, and it's nice to sort of get to know them again. 

 Bo ~ He's funny, kind, gets lost in his own thoughts a lot, doesn't always pay attention or listen, is a bit of a philosopher. When I took this picture he was in the middle of telling me a story. ;)

Brason ~ He's smart, with a quick wit, mischievous, a bit cocky at times, but still sensitive and soft hearted.  

Bethany ~ Sensitive, quiet, very softhearted, funny, talented and smart.

Brianna ~ Talented, creative, artsy, beautiful, well-read and smart, a dreamer.

Providence ~ Adorable, funny, mischievous, sweet, and did I mention ADORABLE??

 Berakah ~ Cute, mischievous, smart, soft hearted, funny.

Of course I've left out a lot of things... I can't possibly cover everything. I'm just loving my time with them, and I thank the Lord for the opportunity. I really am Richly Blessed.
