A New Year

2013 is in the books.  As I think about the old year many memories come to my mind, good and bad.  The one thing that sticks out the most though is how my love for my best friend has grown.  I'm so thankful that after being married for almost fourteen years I can say that I love Joel more now than I did the day I married him.  As 2014 begins, I pray that this year brings us even closer and the love even stronger.

For Christmas Joel surprised me and skipped out on his annual hunting trip with his best friend from college to spend a few days in the Smokey Mountains with me.  I could not have been more surprised!  He spent three days spoiling me.  I would not trade those three quick days for any piece of jewelry in the world!  I know I have gotten kind mushy with this post, but I believe you should give honor where it is due, and he definitely deserves some honor in my book!  I love you Joel!!

Ella Sue

On June 28 we welcomed Ella Sue into the world.  She is the daughter of our "adopted" kids, Bob and Sarah.  Ella has brought everyone much 


Many many things have distracted me from the blog.  In the coming weeks I will attempt to backtrack and update this place of memories.  Check back and see if I succeed.

Possum's Big Wins

We are members of a local rod and gun club. They have a yearly fishing contest. This year Possum won two of the categories in the junior division- the biggest bass and biggest crappie. He was very excited!

Squirrel's Surgery

Little Squirrel had surgery yesterday to remove her tonsils and adenoids which have been troubling her all year long. The surgery went well and she is recovering nicely.

She didn't enjoy Daddy taking her picture while she was dressed in her hospital gown.

Deer Hunter

Possum harvested his first deer of the season this morning. He says we are going to eat it at Thanksgiving like the Pilgrims and Indians did.

Pumpkin Patch and Squirrel's Birthday

Squirrel turned six on October 20th. She requested a family trip to the pumpkin patch and lunch at her favorite, Red Lobster. We had an enjoyable day celebrating.
