I'm Still Here!

I just wanted to stop in and let you know I really am still here.
Our net at home is down and I don't have time anymore more to run up to church and blog. :(
So until we have it back or the Lord works other things out I'll be on my email if you need me! or on Facebook   Jon N Carra

Good Morning Friends!!

Our kiddos love snuggling in our bed in the morning. It's a special and sweet way to start our morning.
Aiden & Quinn we're the first ones up. So Aiden also brought his buddies to share with Quinn!
Have a great day!

It's Corn Time!

Corn, Corn, Yummy Yummy Corn! 
As summer comes to a close our last event for our church family is a Corn Roast!
It's a great evening of fellowship and fun. and not to mention lots and lots of eating.

Mr. Steve enjoying our little Quinn!

This year we added a time of Picking Fun! 
 The kids had a ball.

 Mrs. Holly Teaching Liam how to play the spoons!

 Dreaming about playing the guitar some day!

 Even Aiden got into the fun!

 The Lord Blessed us with a beautiful evening and painted the sky just so He could be glorified!

So sad to see summer coming to a close, but excited for all the fun of fall to begin!

Tea Time!

My Lanna girl and I love anytime that we have to get all dressed up fancy. 
At church a few weeks ago we had a Ladies Brunch, and we were each to wear a hat. So Lanna and I look it just one step farther. we needed Gloves and all!:)

 I had looked everywhere for a hat and just couldn't find one. I hit a garage sale the day before and found this beauty.  I know that it's a "red hatters" hat. but when it's a $1 and the event is tomorrow... you go with what you have, and add a nice bright flower to the side! :)
 We had a blast at our little Brunch and Lanna loved some " Mama time."

 Have a great day!

Anniversary Getaway!

The Lord has blessed us with 7 wonderful years of marriage back in July,  My Sweet Hubby planned a great getaway for us to Lancaster PA. a few weeks ago 
We had a great time just being together, talking and enjoying the country side.

We hit some fun shopping places too.
One was the Kitchen Kettle Village  It was a blast, Little shops everywhere, Quilt stores, Candle stores and Jon said he even enjoyed shopping there! So you know it was good. ;)

My favorite place in the village was this place.    

They had lots and lots of primitive and home decor. I think I could of taken it all home with me if everything was free. :)
We even loved the lay out of the store so much that we talked about building our home like it some day!

We loved to see the differences in the Dutch Amish and our Amish here in Garrett Co.

 Jon had planned a Covered Bridge Tour for us. Oh my I Loved it!!!
Seeing all the old bridges and the countryside as we drove all over to find them was amazing!

Our Sweet Little Quinn! It was a joy to just have one of our kiddos with us. He is such a good baby.

We had a delightful time and look forward to going back many times in the very near future with the kids. One of the fun pluses about where we live is that we drive through Gettysburg to get the Lancaster. so we get to hit 2 great places in one weekend! :)

Have a Blessed Day!

A Sunday Afternoon!

A few weeks ago after long Sunday afternoon naps we went on a walk. It was a beautiful afternoon just  for doing this kinda thing.
 I'll just let the pictures tell you the story. 

 I wanted a family pix, but didn't get one. :(

So thankful for my little family and the great adventures that we have together!!
We are so blessed.

Have a great week,

Going Going Gone!

This summer has just gone by way way tooooooo fast.  I'm not so sure I'm ready to see it coming to a close.
I've enjoyed my little sunflower patch ( Garden that flopped) very much. 
It was a joy to watch them as they always had their little beautiful heads turned towards the sun, It was often a reminder to me of what my heart should be always be heading towards!
Here's just a glimpse of what they looked like!

The Little bee!

 My very busy little Bee!
Look at his little legs!

  Here is just a few more pictures of our porch, my favorite place to just be!

Have a great week, I'm off to think about getting my pumpkins, black crows, scar crows and fall leaves out!

1st Week of School!

I started a new journey this week, one that I've dreamed about for years, but always thought that that it was years away. Not so much!
My 1st baby boy is 5 years old, and with that comes school...  Homeschool!!!
Our first week of Homeschool went really well. we had lots of fun learning. 

My Kindergardener!
       He loves History and Math.

My Pre~K Girl
She loves it all. 

Our Busy Buddy!
The whole time I was doing school with the kids my sweet little Aiden was destroying our house. it from clean to MESSY in just a few minutes!
When I asked Aiden what he wanted to be when he got big like Daddy he said " Me."  :) such a CUTIE!

So on to Week #2 of our new Adventure we go. the kids are super excited about what they are going to learn this week!
 If you have any advice about how you keep your younger kiddos out of big trouble while you do school I'd love to hear about it. Thanks so much!!

Have a Great week.
