Out With the Old and In With the New

When we bought our home,
 it was winter time.
So, we thought this tree was dormant.
But as Spring and Summer came, 
it was apparent, the tree was dead!
The tree needed to be replaced.
So off we went, to a huge tree nursery.
There were so many different types and kinds of trees!
The sales person drove us 
around in a golf cart.
We I decided on a Frontier Elm.
 It finally arrived!
This called for a PARTY!
The grand kids, Mark and Kimmy came over
for breakfast and to watch 
the tree being planted.



Picture Time!
It will be fun to see how big the tree gets,
as the grand kids grow.


"He will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water, Which yields its fruit in it's season,And it's leaf does not wither; And in whatever he does, he prospers." 
Psalm 1:3

  to either Idaho or Seattle, 
23 times in the past 3 1/2 years.

The first 18 times were trips to
Now that we have moved to Idaho,

( 393 miles one way)

This last trip was because of this:

 Scarlett is crawling and pulling herself up!
 She is 8 months old!
Whew! Wow! Can't Be!

Big brother,
 Trey, is another reason!

Trey had to show me his new trick.
Tree climbing and jumping.

Short trip over and back.

I got to hold and kiss both of them, a lot.

I love you more then there are stars in the sky!


"Give, and it shall be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure-- pressed down, shaken together and running over. For by your standard of measure it will be measured to you in return,"

Simple Pleasures

Our daughter and son-in-law
 bought us these 
outdoor, solar lights, for our back patio.
We have really enjoyed them.
Enjoying our visiting, backyard hummer, 
the Strawberry full moon.
to seeing them dangle in the mist.
They come on at dusk and turn off at first daylight.
You can find me anytime of the day
enjoying my
