Birthday and Cherries

100_9801

Today we celebrated my Julie’s 14th birthday.  My, my, how time has flown by.  Seems like just the other day, my Lord was surprising me by giving her to me.  God is SO good.  We celebrated at Groundhog Mountain with hamburgers, hotdogs and chocolate cake.  The Horn’s came with us and Dave, Jess and the kids met us on the Blue Ridge Parkway at Meadows of Dan.  We had a wonderful day!!

Mrs. Vicki bringing trucks for the boys to play with.  You will notice she has on a jacket.  It was kinda chilly here this morning.  42 degrees when we got up.   I think it is supposed to be about that chilly tonight too.  It was a nice day though-definitely not too hot.

Daniel seems to be deep in thought.

From the picnic area, we went on down the Parkway to Levering Orchard to pick cherries.

The trees were loaded with cherries.

If you look closely in this picture, you will see a man in the top of the tree picking.

We all had so much fun.  I can’t think of a better way to spend the day than with family and best friends.  Enjoy your day and God bless.

Anyone for pie in your face?  I know you can’t see it very well but yes that is our pastor in the background with whipped creme all over his face.  His game was to ask the children bible questions and if they answered correctly they get the throw a whipped creme pie in his face.  It was, of course, a big “hit”.  The kids stood in line for the opportunity to play his game.  He is a really good sport.  To be honest, it probably was his idea.

Will the real bumblebee please stand up?  I think PawPaw needs a bigger costume, don’t you?

Sam had a lot of fun getting passed from person to person.  It doesn’t take long for your arms to get tired holding this boy.  He is constantly in motion.  Well, more pictures next time.  We all had fun. 

Yesterday, we made cinnamon rolls and shared them with our best friends, the Horns.  It was a nice visit, just not long enough.  Today the girls and I are going for haircuts after school.  I am going to stop to vote on the way.  Hope all of you have a great day and God bless.

Our first snow!  The snow started about 6:30 this morning and is still coming down at 2:00.  The girls are so happy.  They have been out several times to play.  The Horn family is supposed to come over later this afternoon for a visit.  The girls can hardly wait.  Playing in the snow with their best friends.  Vicki is bringing homemade potato soup.  I am making homemade rolls and dessert.  Our tree is up and snow is falling.  It’s starting to look a lot like Christmas around here.  I love this time of year.  God Bless

Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to my sweet baby girl!!  Yesterday was party day.  Best Friends celebrating together.  Life is good.  Yellow cake with chocolate icing and only a few sprinkles (just the way she likes it).   Yesterday, Hubby and his brother went out to cut more wood and today he is going with our friend from church.  Hopefully lots to split and stack.  He is deer hunting this morning , something he truly enjoys, and something we all truly enjoy eating.  Good Luck, hon.  I’m not sure what the girls and I will get into yet.  There is always something to do around here.   Tomorrow we hear another trial sermon from the candidate for pastor.  We will have another fellowship meal after church.  We also start our new study on Revelation from John MacArthur tomorrow.  I think the book of Revelation is one of the hardest books in the bible to understand and probably the most misunderstood.  Hopefully, I will know a little more about it when this study is finished.   Next Sunday we will vote on the pastor.  I’m still not sure how to vote Yes. or NO.  I’m still praying.  I think this is a very BIG decision and I want to make sure I’m on the same page as God.  Pray that all will go well and that we, as a church, will vote according to God’s will.  Well, better get busy.  God Bless.
