Happy birthday Shep!

We officially have a 2 year old. It's amazing to think how much has gone on in our lives the past few years. We have experienced more pain and joy than we thought imaginable but we praise God for the blessing of Shepherd. He is loud, stinky, a complete clown, smart, dirty, outdoors-y... You guessed it. He is B-O-Y.

Luke 2

I wanted to put this on at Christmas time but I couldn't figure out how to upload vids from my phone to YouTube. I finally figured it out and thought this was worth sharing. It doesn't have to be Christmas to enjoy the Word. Ella had to learn part of Luke 2 at school and this clip is her reciting what she had memorized. It's incredible to hear the entire class recite this passage from memory. I sing praises knowing that she is part of a school that truly teaches the children to hide scripture in their hearts. 


Roll Tide Roll. 
I could have at least washed Shep's face before I took this picture. Fun times.

Nothing runs like a Deere. ;)

Pinterest fail

Note to self... Just because you see it on Pinterest and it looks yummy delicious in a picture, does NOT mean it will be.  I have tried two recipes so far and they've both been disgusting. But, boy oh boy, "everyone" on Pinterest raved about them. The first one was the oven baked fajitas. Blech. Scott liked them. But I can't use him as a barometer. Bless his soul, he will eat anything I put in front of him. Love. That. Man.  The second one was the "make your own tortilla chips". Now, I will say that perhaps if I used corn tortillas, the end result would be different. But I only had flour torts on hand. And several people even commented that they were just as good. Lie!  ;).   They even looked good as I was preparing them...

I will probably try again with corn torts.  Anyone one of my handful of readers ever tried them?  I would love to know. I love love restaurant chips and salsa. 

So, now I need to go check on my husband, whom I've sent outside to spray paint a picture frame... Just like one on Pinterest. ;)

Yay for Saturdays. When Daddo is home. 

Day 6/365

Not the best picture, but cute, nonetheless. These are build a bear glasses.

365 day challenge

I had a whole blog post explaining my 365 day photo challenge. This "blogsy" app is crap though and my post was deleted. So here it is... But without the story, because I refuse to waste anymore time tonight on this project. I'm going to bed.  I want to throw this "time saving", "easy to use", "you'll never want a computer again" iPad across the bedroom.
