Give a boy a tree to climb


This Boy.
A tad bit- Squirrel.
A whole lot- Monkey.
An absolute- Show-Off.
1 of 4 reasons- I enjoy photography and my favorite thing to capture behind my camera.

Privacy Fence Project | Part Two


A Memorial Day family project.
The cedar panels are divine!
Who doesn't love the smell of cedar?!
The fence is not yet complete, so we will keep on.
Stay tuned.

P.S. I am completely aware of Ruger's barefeet.  That's just how that boy rolls.

Happy Memorial Day + A Freebie

I have a *New Freebie up on my facebook page.
Enjoy the long weekend!

Just the way the Oklahoma Sky looks sometimes.


Our big Oklahoma sky needs no introduction.
This time of the year the sky can change in a split second.

We are grateful to live in what us NEOKies call Green Country.
A place more trees and hills cover the land, that helps protect us from a tornado's path.
This April the sky was in constant motion.
I caught it on camera, taken different times of the day.
This was what Green Country looked like before moving South down to Quapaw and Vilonia, AR.
Read more about that tornado here.

Four hands. Four feet. + Oklahoma Clay



Leave it up to my littles to find some clay during our fence post hole dig.
Entertainment for hours.

And of course, no photo opp would be complete without Joe.

Privacy Fence Project | Part One


Over the weekend we rented an auger to dig the post holes.
Add some cement and four good men.
Well, two are up and coming good men.
And the posts were in.
Stay tuned.
Part two (completion phase) is planned over Memorial day weekend.

Dinner. Shopping. Movie.


For Mothers Day I wanted to go somewhere,  I just didn't know where.
Jeff talked it over with the kids, we jumped in the car and headed to T-Town.
First up they took me to Upper Crust pizza.  Yum!
Then, a little shopping at the mall.
Even though I didn't buy anything it still counts.
Last, we ended up at the AMC for the movie, God's Not Dead.
A great movie!
Thank you to my wonderful hubby and kiddos.
My day was perfect.
Love you all so very much.

P.S. Happy Mothers Day to my Mama in AZ and to my MIL in WA.
