Practice Makes Perfect...

Judah loves playing his fiddle! Complete with his straw hat, "lide-lo" (his word for fiddle- it sounds like he's yodeling), and bow he will sit and occupy himself with some music for a long time...

Since a 3/4 violin is too big for this little boy he plays it cello style!
Smile Judah!

" Lovely music my dears..."

Does it get any cuter then this?

Sandy River Rapids

We have found one of our favorite activities for a very hot summer day!

Recently our family went to the Sandy River which flows through Dabney State Park. Mrs. Knifong at gave us the wonderful tip of wearing our life jackets and floating down the river rapids. Thank you Mrs. Knifong!

All of us:

Jordan, Bethany, & Eden start down...
Shiloh prepares the "very cold De-De" for the next plunge!
And the race begins!
Judah enjoys the more shallow and stiller water...
We loved the rapids and can't wait for another summer day to go again!

P.S. For those interested... We bought our beautiful swimsuits from and we LOVE them!

Baby Time

Judah meets little Mary Beth Knifong! He loves playing with the "be-be" whenever they visit.

Shiloh Turns 17 Years Old

Ten short years ago, I thought that my life was so full.... I was a busy Momma of four lively little ones ages 7 down to newborn. Now, that 7 year old little girl has turned into a 17 year old young lady and I just can't believe that the years have past so quickly. Hug your babies, Mothers.... because before you know it... they will be taller than you.... smarter than you.... and more adorable than you. How very thankful I am to the LORD that I have had the privilege of parenting this most beautiful young lady! Happy Birthday to you, Shiloh! Your Mother and Father love you dearly!

Babysitting Fun

Today Bethany and Shiloh babysat the Ashmore children!

Here Bethany reads a Bible story...

Ava & Troy listen to the Bible and eat breakfast:

Later we played hide-n-seek in the shop.

Then we took a long walk and visted the neighbor's horses.

Shiloh, Natalie, & Troy have an interesting "conversation" with the "talking" horse.

I'm Another Year Old Today!

On July 21, 2008 our darling De-De turned 10 years old!

Here she is with her pony cake...
Happy Birthday & Happy Trails Eden!!!
