The Last Rose

This is the last rose on the bush for this season.
I wanted to bring her in and enjoy 
her beauty.

When I saw it from across the room, 
I knew I had to take her picture.

Her leaves are small and spindly 
but her blossom is so colorful.
She has just enough
perfume left on her petals. 

 I knew just the perfect place for her last days.
It's a room that is black and white and will
show off her beauty for all who enter.

I was looking out my window to watch
the leaves fall and the rain 
come down.

On closer inspection I noticed this guy.

Yes, it's Fall.
The spiders are out.

God creation is amazing!

God is good!

Getting Ready...


When my friend came back from Europe this summer, 
she had a special gift for me.

Organic Green Tea
called Autumn Tea
Yesterday, another friend brought
 over some colorful flowers!
Now, I'm anticipating the change of the season.

I am fascinated by the directions.
They tell you the temperature for brewing
And for how long, with pictures.
No need for translation!

Autumn Equinox is when night and
 day are nearly the same length, 12 hours.

I'll be sipping tea to celebrate.
Do you celebrate the first day of Fall?

I love History!
Last night I got my dose of it by watching, 
The Roosevelt's on PBS.

Can't get enough!

Are you watching?

Back Home

and we had so much FUN!

Mark and Kimmy rented a Bounce House that was huge.
It was for adults as well as children.
From 10:00 in the morning until 7:00 in the evening we played on it!
There was someone in or on it every minute!
Even our dog, Lucy enjoyed watching.

 It was a total surprise for the children.
I knew before hand, so I
 planned ahead by stretching all my limbs,
 for weeks.
I wasn't going to miss out on the fun!

 Tom had his spot at the bottom of the slide.
Do you see him down there?
Because of his two knee and a hip surgeries,
 he opted out for most of it.
Though he did enter the bounce house 
and slid down a few times.

Kimmy decorated for Levi's Golden Birthday 
the night before, so in the morning, 
Levi woke up to 
a wonderment of excitement.

 Levi received a stethoscope for his birthday
 from Uncle Todd and Aunt Stephanie.

Last May, Silas had Open Heart surgery.
(He is doing really well.)

Lulu decided to listen to Silas' heart and 
then showed him how to listen to her heart.

I love this series of pictures!!!
It bring tears to my eyes.
This little guy has been through so much.

The love between these two siblings, just shines!

God is Good!

(miss you guys)

Celebrating a Golden Birthday

Five years ago we celebrate
we are going to celebrate again.

"Cowboy" Levi,
just 8 days old.

This is what 5 years old looks like.

Off  on a road trip 
to celebrate this little guy
(who is getting bigger and bigger).

He told us, that he has his whole day planned!
Little does he know...
he has a huge surprise coming his way!

Golden Birthday :
When the date of birth matches how old you are.
