Miscellany Monday!

I'm going to go ahead and steal Jenn from Cow Cap Tales, Miscellany Monday! {Hope you don't mind Jenn!}

This weekend, like most, flew by so fast! I need to remind myself not to blink! Time is flying by so fast I feel like I'm going to miss something. The Lord has been doing his work on me, but I am loving this season that we are in. Not season's season {like summer or fall}, but this season in life! I have wished for many things to change and wanted and yearned for things, but I'm coming around to see God wants me to be content with the now! And I have a feeling that this season will end before I'm quite ready for it to, too!

So, here is to capturing these moments!!
{Aren't you proud of me?!? I've been taking more pictures!!}

Carport is finished!! Minus rigging some lights under there!

Cows! We sorted calves last Thursday and took them boys to the sale barn! Didn't get any good pictures, since I'm Bobby's right hand "man"!, but here are a few of the dust!!
But then we fed this weekend and I got to get some!

These last three are heifers. I'm so thrilled about our calf crop this year and getting to save some of these beauties back! And I'm thrilled with the condition the cows are in... who would have thought at the end of summer they would look this good?!? God is Good!!

German Chocolate Cake!
This was made at Bobby's request, but he was disappointed that I didn't put icing on the sides. The direction said that it was tradition not to ice the sides, but he doesn't like that! What do y'all think?? Ice the sides or not??

I've been talking about my okra all summer, I know, but I'm so fascinated by it! And it is now officially taller then me {Not that I'm tall or anything, but still!!} We've been making okra for a solid month, but this is the first the blooms are out {as far as I've noticed!}I think that they are gorgeous. Bobby and I were picking on Saturday morning and I just kept going on and on about them. I'm sure he was like, "Yea, I get the point," but he was nice and didn't say that!!

We've also got some Dove hunting in this weekend. Even though I'm not very good, I'm getting better. Most importantly I love it because I get to be with Bobby! It is fun to do together!!

 Am I watching the skies?? No! I'm watching this come across the field!!

And last but not least... last night while hunting we got to here this pretty storm roll in. It was still a little south of us and we only got some sprinkles, but it was wonderful to listen to and see God's beauty! I don't like how the camera can't pic up the glory of what it's like in real life, but it was a beautiful rainbow!!!



Miss Gracen's Big 1st Birthday!

Now, as promised (even if it is a week late), here are pictures of Gracen's first birthday party! We had a busy Saturday preparing for the party by making ice cream and cake and getting all the details in order. It was exhausting, but so much fun!

I don't know if I mentioned it, but my sister (G's mom) broke her ankle/leg the previous Monday. Bobby told her that was awful timing!! She had most everything planned and ready to go and we all pitched in and helped get things to the party. It was my pleasure not only to help with the party, but to take care of Gracen for Mikkie. She had surgery on Wednesday and is in a splint cast and crutches with absolutely no pressure on the leg. So, I got to get miss G up and feed her breakfast, put her down for naps, bath her, ect... Love being this little ones aunt!!

So here are some of the decorations from the party! I took these on my sisters phone cause I forgot mine!! You'll have to excuse blurriness and such! Mik had a friend taking real pictures at the party, so these are just pre-party!

Smash Cake for Miss G!

And just a few for good measure. Having fun with miss G! "Winding her down for bed time!!!"

And she melts her Uncle Bobby's heart!! She would crawl up on the couch, then scoot down off the couch, then crawl around and her daddy (or I) would chase her her back up the couch! She was all giggles that night! It was my favorite!

And she is so smart. She does her own version, but she knows the sign language for more! And says, "mo..."

Miss Gracen is a HUGE Blessing in our lives!! Love her!!

Happy Monday!!
