Treasures & Tulips

I love love love Tulips!!!
But what can be better than Tulips???

"Treasures and Tulips."

Our tulips around the farm are just amazing this spring so each year I drag the kiddos out for a photo shoot. ;) This year I chose a really bad time to do it, Quinn was ready for a nap. but I knew that if I didn't get it done that day that it just might be the last pretty day for the Tulips.

I just love love love our little "Treasures" each one so different from the rest and yet just so alike. Their blue eyes just melt your heart, and dimples..... Oh Man!

Quinn was just finished! But this Mama just loves the pouty face that was going on. :)

This was 2 years ago, I just love them in all their cute baby chubbiness!  With Quinn being born last year I don't remember taking pictures. WHAT??? I know, That would have been all the more reason to take them, but ??? oh well. :)

My smart, witty, outgoing, fun loving, outdoorsman. He is such a talker, he got to spend time this week with a sweet little friend from church. He was still trying to tell me stories the night he got home as he was falling asleep. He is such a hoot.
He loves to ride his bike, he goes round and round our house, one time he'll have his back pack on with a buddy sticking out the top of it, then the next time he just might have his hunting gun. ( a Big Stick) :)
And is officially done with Kindergarten!!!  

Elhanna Joy 
She is quiet and meek hearted, loves to help me around the house with little jobs, and is often found helping with Quinn. She is a great helper, and will be an awesome Mama some day.
She is not a huge talker till it's time to tuck her into bed. and then it seems as the flood gates open and you better have your bucket, cause she is overflowing with stories from the day. We love those special times with our little lady!

Aiden MacSheyne

Our Sweet "Macky" He is such a joy to have around, He is always humming a little tune as he plays, and is very content to play alone in a dirt pile, or with a " Digger" ( any kind of  tractor or truck with a bucket on the front.) as he calls it, or in the driveway playing with rocks. I think he is dirty 99 % of the time cause he just loves to play outside. He is 110 % ALL BOY!  and We love it!
So thankful for our Sweet Boy!

Quinn Michael
Our Little Monkey! He is not walking yet. but is all over the house. He plays little games as he learns to tease and have fun. His giggle is contagious, and his little "cloth diaper bum" is just adorable.
He is our first baby to always sleep with his bottom in the air. Oh my, I just can't get enough of him!
With Mother's Day this weekend, I'm not going to be with my Sweet Mama. I'm so thankful for her and her examples that she has set over the years.
Take time to call and love on your Mom this weekend. If your Mother is gone, and is home with the Lord. Remember her sweet legacy that she has left in your heart.
And if your Mom is  500 miles away like mine would you find a lady in your area or church that you could love on this weekend.
Well, It's day 2 of the Garage Sale, and are having a blast. the Kiddos are excited to be here today to help. Yesterday they were with a sitter.:)
Have a wonderful weekend!!
Here's just one more picture of a Tulip. ( This one was in my Kitchen for almost 2 weeks, Love it!)

Modest Monday!!

Good Morning!!!
Monday is here again and I'm just amazed how fast the weekend just disappears. 
We got the garage all cleaned up are all ready to set up for our Garage Sale this weekend. and you know what, more then having the sale I'm excited to spend the weekend with wonderful friends as we watch and help with the sale.
There is  always just something about fellowship that I can't get enough of. :)
The Lord is good.
So on the Modest Monday!!

Here is my outfit!  It was so windy when we were taking pictures that I had to hold my shirt down. :/

Here is one without the sweater, the plan was not to need a sweater, but it was chilly again before we left for church.

I had soooooo many comments about my hair at church, that I thought I'd share it with you. it's looking a bit messy here, but for going all morning and most of the afternoon it was ok!
I found the idea on facebook. :) and tried it. I'll share the picture in a min.
It was super easy and I did a version on of it on Lanna too. but we didn't get a picture of her's. 

Here is the pix. it was super easy to do with my hair wet. 

What I Wore.
Light Green Shirt: Good Will :)
Dark Brown Skirt: Hand me down from my Sister
White Camy: Gap
Peaky Toe "Mudd" Shoes: Garage Sale 
Earrings: Wal~mart
 Spoon Bracelet: Permire Designs

I'm so excited, this will be my last post from this computer!!! I have worked really hard and have finally saved up enough  money to buy a computer for me here at home! ( I've been using Jon's work computer.) and it's to arrive today. I'm soooo excited to be able to blog more often. :)
Tomorrow is our next DoTERRA Essential Oil Giveaway, so come on back to enter then!
Have a Blessed day!!

Thrifty Thursday!

I thought it would be fun to start up something new with this being the first week in May!
Thrifty Thursday!!!
Just a fun post on how to be thrifty. It may be shopping, cleaning, time or caring for my precious family I feel a burden to use them each for the Lord wisely. and I have to say, I just love a good deal when I'm shopping!
So for our very first post I'm going to use one that I just love, and use it often.

Freezing Cookie Dough!!!!

We all love the smell of fresh cookies baking in the oven, but with 4 little ones under foot I don't always have the time or the energy to bake cookies once a week, so I've started making a double batch and baking half of it, and then freezing the last batch in balls and when the kids ask for cookies I can slip some into the oven and in just a few minuets have yummy warm cookies for them!
It's been nice to for those times when friends stop by unexpectedly and I have nothing fresh in the house to offer with tea, to just stick them in and there ready in a few, and the house smells yummy too! 
So all you do is Make your family favorite's and  flash freeze them for a few hours. bag them up in a freezer zip lock and write the name on the bag and the temp to bake them at, with the time (add 2 minuets to the baking time because of being frozen)  and your set!   

I try to have ours lay flat in the freezer, but if space is an issue for you don't worry about it, but make sure their good and frozen before you bag them up!

I'm thinking of doing a  "Thrifty Thursday " link up. what would you think???
For this week if you have a blog post about saving 4 or being thrifty that you'd like to share with each other, just leave it in a comment below. and we'll hop over that way for this week. we'll see what next week holds. 
Be on the look out for our next DoTERRA Essential Oil giveaway here in the next few days.
Have a great day!!!


Hubby surprised me with a Button for our blog the other day!!! I was soooooo excited, and just smitten with him. :) I'd love for you to grab it! ( you can find it over on the right)
