The Brockett's Visit

The Brockett Family migrates South. In 20 hours they went from 7 degrees to 75. Wow, I think I would migrate, too!
We had such a wonderful time while they were here. Thank you Brocketts, for blessing us with your visit. Here are a few of the 750+ pictures we took that week.

From Apples to Oranges.
Pure Florida Gold!!
How many people can REALLY fit on a trampoline?
I think there's room for a few more.

But, on second thought, maybe it is.

Caption Contest Countdown.....

Time is running out in this life AND in this contest. As you can tell if you've been on this blog much, that your caption doesn't have to be anything spectacular, just a simple caption in plain English (or whatever you call what we speak. Some don't call it English):)

The judges, Mr.P and Gabriel, will be judging the winner Friday evening, March 27th. They have not read any of the captions, nor will they know who wrote each one. We will announce the winner on Friday, after the voting takes place.

So come on and join in on the fun. You'll be glad you did and so will we.

Work/ Music/ Birthdays

It's time to build onto the barn....

It sure makes it nice with this machine.

Some things still have to be done the old fashioned way.
First part is done.

Now we have to wait for the sawmill to continue with the rest.

Now onto some fun.....

We enjoyed meeting the Wissmann Family and seeing them in concert.

What a precious family!!

Liv, trying to be sophisticated :)

We can see right through that, girl!!!

Stopping for ice cream at McDonalds. (Good ole junk food)

Now it's time for another PARTY. Did somebody say party?

A party just aint a party, unless you have a fire of some kind.

How bout this?

Whoa, it's a little steamy around here!!

This is the life.

Stay tuned for more...
