BASS PRO SHOPS & NATURE WALK

Howdy Friends! I hope you all had a great Christmas spent with friends & family. Today instead of sharing our Christmas Eve & Christmas Day, I will do that another time, I’m sharing our little outing to the Bass Pro Shop to visit their Winter Wonderland. Here’s the girls getting ready to walk out the back door, right before we left I gave them these little stuffed animal purses that my Nino Mike sent them. They loved them! Right when…

BUILD A BEAR WORKSHOP

Last week Jarret and I fulfilled a long time wish of Maddie’s and took her to Build-A-Bear Workshop. She was so-so excited and kept smiling ear-to-ear!!! We surprised her Friday morning when we told her she got to stay home from school and spend the whole day with Mom & Dad. Maddie was in need of a personal day and special time.  She kept saying, “It’s special time for Maddie.”  Our first stop of the day was the mall so…

TWO WEEKS TILL CHRISTMAS

Hey y’all!  This morning we did our annual drop off the Santa letters at the special mailbox inside our local Post Office. The kids look forward to this little tradition every year and I also included last year’s picture to show you how much the kiddos have grown.  Every year it is always so cold outside that we jump out of the warm car, run up the ramp, drop the letter in the box, take the picture and then run…

LIFE LATELY | 11-20-17

Happy Monday family & friends!!!

HALLOWEEN & HALLMARK

Hey y’all!  This past week we celebrated Halloween and our Halloween was quite chilly here in the Midwest. We all ended up needing to wear our big jackets and we got done right before it started to rain! Bryce was Ninjago (Lego Ninja), Naomi was Elena of Avalor and Maddie was Rainbow Dash from My Little Pony! Sunday before Halloween we carved our pumpkins… Jarret and I both helped the girls with their designs and helped them with the carving.…

THE CLOSING OF A CHAPTER

Heeeyooh! The last two to three weeks have been BIG decision making times for all of us. As of last Tuesday we are officially not milking cows anymore…we are not in the dairy business. This was one of the hardest decisions we’ve ever had to make.  Over the last month or so, we’ve all been on a roller coaster ride of emotions trying to make the best decision for us collectively and individually. This decision didn’t come lightly, but over…

PICNICS & BONFIRES

Happy Columbus Day family & friends!!! There’s no school today so the kids are having a slow morning of breakfast, cartoons and playing toys. This past weekend made for lots of memory making…   Jer & I attended a wedding, we had a picnic by the pond and ended the weekend with an evening bonfire.  I captioned this picture on instagram with, “We don’t get dressed up very often.” The last time I wore a dress was my Sister’s wedding,…
