Come on Spring!

I love the natural beauty of our little farm.  I took this picture last spring on a walk around our farm.  I can't wait to see these cute little wildflowers again.  Even though I can't really complain about the winter so far, I am anxious for warmer days.  I have been taking walks lately on the path Randy kept mowed last summer for me.  The cold weather froze the earth so it is not a mud fest.  This morning it was 24 degrees when I walked but I still talked Maddison into bundling up and going with me.  Mason has been fighting a cold lately and coughed some in the wee hours of the morning.  He wasn't really interested in going outside, so I just let him be. 
We have company from Texas staying with us this week.  Randy's cousin and his family are in for a funeral, and they brought their 7 and 4 year old children.  The kids had a really good time playing together.
Have a great weekend everyone!

Summer Dreaming!

We are in the middle of a very cold spell here in Missouri.  It might hit 17 today, with a low close to zero tonight.  This isn't the coldest I remember, but my tolerance for cold weather is not nearly what it used to be.
I had to "call up" a picture from the summer to make me feel better.  This is a picture of our shelter house during construction.  We finally finished the project in late October, delayed due to the extreme heat and dryness of the summer.  I will post a finished picture when it isn't so cold and dreary out. 
But for now, I am left to relive the warm weather through pictures and my imagination!

This is one of my favorite pictures of Jessica and Scott.  I have been reviewing my blog and found that Scott has been mysteriously absent in my photos.  I am beginning to think that he may be a little camera shy.  Scott is a student of chemistry and will graduate next year.  He is probably the most dedicated student I have ever known.  He takes his school work seriously and keeps a rigid study schedule.  Scott is so good with the kids and they love to call him "Uncle Scoot".  Scott and Jessica have been married for 2 and 1/2 years, and he has become an important member of our family.  Scott is a super guy and I love having him as part of our family!
