The Definition of Cute!

The faces I love!

Just for smiles:

Jameson recently taught Landon the art of preaching. They tag team their sermons, each holding plastic hammers or oblong shaped toys for their microphones. Books are used for their Bibles. Landon has a growly preacher voice and stomps around the living room while we crack up laughing. Jameson uses a handkerchief like his Daddy and pants during his message about "Train Tracks." What would we do for laughs without these guys?!

One year ago today my sweet Mother-in-law, Pam went to be with the Lord. Remembering that night causes the sadness to wash over me again. It was so hard to watch my husband grieve the loss of a parent for the second time. Yet the Comforter has been with us every step of the way and we couldn't have done it without Him. We miss her very much. Life will never be the same. It's hard knowing she won't be here to watch her grandbabies grow up. Jameson has amazed us by how much he remembers her and misses her to this day. He talks of "Memaw" often and even incorporates her into his play time. Landon resembles her, and it's a precious gift from God to be able to catch a glimpse of her when we look at him. It's so sweet to know that it's not "Good-bye" but, "See you later!"

Country Living

We've enjoyed the veggies from our Pastor's garden and are planning on growing our own next year. I have never put up vegetables of any kind so I was proud of the half bushel of corn that I did recently. The boys enjoyed munching while I was shucking it outside! We've only eaten one bag so far but it was delicious.

Shucked & washed!

In the bowl...

My 7 bags of corn : )

I couldn't resist including this clip of Jameson!

Mom's 50th!

We had a great time celebrating Mom's birthday with our entire family at Moe's. We went back to the house for cake & ice cream afterwards. I feel so blessed to have her and I'm looking forward to the next fifty years! : )
