I spend my days playing. Really I do. It's the best possible job in the world. I play house, I play in the yard, I play with crafts and I play the piano. I play with my camera and I play with my dinner (kidding). Life is sweet here on the edge of the Prairie---just this side of Heaven!
I have never been able to write fast enough to keep up with my thoughts so diaries were always started but soon became a burden. However, I have always understood the importance of keeping a diary...if after I go home (pass over, die) I become famous, like Jane Austen did, why, in that case, my biographers would need my diaries to piece together the facts of my amazing life...The answer? Blogging! after all, I type so much faster than I can write. And, if along the way, my adult kids check in just to find out what mom is up to...so much the better!
Our first little blessings!
We gave birth to SonMarie Sunshine...then we adopted Johnny Mike!
Then we prayed for a bigger family
God heard our prayer. He decided the kids he would put in our family wouldn't necessarily be little blessings but teen aged blessings!Oh, Sweet Marmalade!
"Soccer-head" and "Car-less"
The next blessings added to our family!
"Doc-2" came next...
...at 6'4" he isn't exactly a little blessing!
Soccer-head married Bookworm
and they added...Taz and then, Puppy!
Everyone in the pic?
No...Car-less, put down the camera and get in the pic!
Then this guy stole her heart
