My 99th Post... :-)

Hello, Friends!

I mentioned a few days ago that I'd be back and share pictures from our 4th. I have a special story to share and will have a photo to go with it, but it seems that it will have to wait for another day... this will be another busy one. (My sister's garden is "coming in" and we're going to go and help her "shell beans.")

So, I suppose this will be the first of a two part 4th of July update. I hope you won't mind waiting. O=-)

Until then.. these are some pictures from our 4th celebration with my husband's family. ;-)

The first two photos are of Zach & Gabe with Addison & Lora Beth (Link's sister, Virginia's daughters)and the now famous Allie Grace (She's Link's youngest sister, Elizabeth's baby)

This is Gabe with "Pap-Paw Sam" (Link's Dad)

The beginning of a "group shot" (Our children of course don't know how to behave when having their pictures made... HA!!!!!!)

Sweet little Allie Grace - all played out, in her Daddy's arms...

Alrighty, that's it for today. Oh, my next post will be my 100th. Man, it's going to be hard to finish that one.... hehehehe

Cleaning up

Hello, Friends!

It's BEEN FOREVER (again) since I've posted. I seem to get overwhelmed when I get behind.. which leads to even MORE procrastination. It's a never ending cycle with me. Hehehe..

Before I start rambling, I'd like to say THANKS to each of you who've visited and have left words of encouragement. I can't say how much I appreciate YOU! Our internet connection isn't the best and I'm afraid I may not be able to respond to each one. I DO HOPE to get caught up and visit each of you soon!

Now, this post itself will be "short-n-sweet." I don't have a lot of time but didn't want to let another day go without checking in. (I've MISSED You all!)

So.. I do have some 4th pictures to share, but there's a lot of story that needs to go with them so I'll save it for my next post. With that said... I'll move on to the photos below. =-)

I've been gently nagging reminding my sweet hubby that there was a REALLY BIG, really DEAD tree in our yard that NEEDED to GO! It not only was an eyesore, it was an accident waiting to happen. (After a storm a big limb fell with such force that it literally stuck into the ground - it was standing STRAIGHT UP!)

SOOOOOOO... His crew was moving from one job to another and he had them swing by and drop off his bulldozer. Zach is pictured below watching the truck driver unload it. (Don't you know this was one of the grandest of all "toys" to our 10 year old boy?) ;-)

You can't really SEE Link in this picture, but he's in the dozer going after the tree..

TIMBEEEEEEERRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (A dorky attempt at sound-effects! HA!)

Now of COURSE the boys couldn't wait to go and SEE the damage! (What IS it with boys like that??) Hehehehe

Okay, I'll check in again soon. Today I have the little princess and I'm "working" during nap time. ;-) (Oh, in case you don't know who "the princess" is... it's our beautiful niece, Allie Grace!)

Have a WONDERFUL weekend!
