We celebrated Miss Katie’s first birthday this weekend.  Her actual birthday was Friday but we partied on Saturday.  Jess made these beautiful cupcakes for Katie.  They were delicious.

We traveled to Pikeville Hospital Sunday to see George’s Dad.  He is still in intensive care but seemed to be improving.   I talked to George’s sister today, however, and she said his mind is coming and going now.  I am so thankful that when we were there he knew us and even talked some to us.

Yesterday, my baby girl Grace, turned 13 years old.  My, my, how time does fly by.  We didn’t celebrate yet as she had a sore throat and wanted to wait.  We will be doing it on Friday.  Friday will be a big day for us.  We are butchering our spring roosters.  The Horn’s are coming over and bringing their roosters.  It will be a fun day.  Our pastor and his wife are coming to help.  They are the experts, we are novices.  I plan on making a huge pot of 15 bean soup.  Vicki is bringing drinks and making cupcakes which will serve as Grace’s birthday cake.  Doesn’t every girl celebrate her 13th birthday with a chicken butchering day.  Well, she’ll always remember it.

That’s about it for now.  We are finished with school for the day.  I cooked a beef roast on the wood stove for supper.  I added some potatoes, turnips, onions, broccoli and carrots to the pot just a fewinutes ago.  YUM!.

Enjoy your day and God bless.

Our Latest Find

Here’s a picture of our latest yard sale find.  Saturday we went down to Jessica’s to celebrate Sam’s first birthday.  Happy birthday, baby boy.   We ended up not getting to stay for the party as Grace was not feeling well.  When we got down there, though, one of her neighbors was having a yard sale.  We walked over with Dave to check it out and found these books.  I could not believe it when she told me the price.  $5.00!  Yeah, I was one happy mama.  10 childrens classics.  I love old books.

Yesterday was my beautiful Julie’s 13th birthday.  Happy birthday my darling girl.  After church we went out to eat and then went to the movies.  We watched Kung Fu Panda 2.  Going to the movies is still a big treat for us.  We don’t do it very often because we want it to remain special and because there are very few good movies to go see.   Anyway we had a fun but busy weekend. 

We got a little rain last night.  Hopefully enough to get the garden growing.  Sunshine today with comfortable temperatures.  Saturday morning we were down in the 40’s but I think that will be the last of the cooler mornings.  Well, I have clothes to hang out and school to do.  Enjoy your day and God bless.
