Picture Post

I am Lov-ing hearing from you all! Thanks for stoping in and sayin' "Hello." I HAVE noticed some of you are poppin' in and not commenting and I want you to know that I noticed ! LOL Ten lashes with a wet noodle for you few! Just teasing. And the recipies....Mmmmmm many many thanks for those! Who doesn't love new recipes, huh?

I finally unloaded a ton of pics from the camera and thought you might like a peek. You all can see what we have been up to.

Last week we were able to spend a wonderfully relaxing evening with some friends of ours at their house and farm. They were nice enough to allow me to invite my whole family over for dinner. :-) Yes I really did, and yes they are some NICE folks.

I LOVE this picture and this lady. She accepts me, and has befriended me in a very special way.

These are their concord grapes which they gathered to make us some de-lish juice to accompany dinner.

Here's a small glimpse of their garden

One of their goats....I just love goats!!

A quaint view from their hayloft. I sat and wondered how many hours I could pass up here with a good book and a ton of kids snuggling with me. Just loved it!

We all felt so comfortable here......I so enjoy looking at this sight.

My widdle girlies one morning. What you don't know is that I was right in the middle of these cuties just before I wiggled out to take this picture. Is there anything sweeter than sleeping kids piled on you in the wee hours of the morning?

Laynie girl~!

Joel getting to feed Alayna at home for the first time. Look at Isaac kissing her head......precious!!

This is precious also. Uncle Greg relishing a moment with Alayna...

My view several times a day. I stand here and pray, praise God, and smile...often.


  1. Beautiful pix! Especially the ones of Alayna! She is getting so big and looks like the picture of health!

    I finally, FINALLY, got a post up. It wasn't exactly what I had in mind, but it works. Would love to hear your thoughts. And I also commented on your comment on my previous post.

    Tell Joel and the kids we said HI, and that you all need to come visit us soon! Love ya!

  2. Wonderful pictures! I'm so glad you had such a wonderful time at that farm home. Alayna looks adorable and what a blessing!:o)

  3. Yes! More pictures of Alayna. Thanks for posting them!!

  4. Mrs. Royalty, once again I am crying looking at the new pictures. I miss you all so much and cannot wait to see everyone again! I just love the pic of Anna and Alayna, they are so precious! You are all in my thoughts daily!!!!!!!

    Love Always,
