Happy Father's Day!

To the men in my life...

Tegan~ His little Laylabug calls him "Papa" instead of Daddy. This leaves Dave to be "Pop-ay" to Layla!! Tegan is a hands on father. This baby loves him more than words can say! She giggles the minute she sees him! Happy Anniversary to Tegan and Kelley! We wish you many, many, many more!
Happy Father's Day Tegan!

Townsend Cyle~ He is Townsend Cayden and Mya's "Daddy". Cayden adores him and is learning so much from his Daddy. Mya loves hearing her Daddy voice when he comes into the room and her face just lights up!
Happy Father's Day Cyle!

Donny~ Sarah and Molly call him "Daddy". Donny is a hand on Dad and the girls love to spend time with him! Molly is most like her Daddy, having learned his sense of humor and is running with it herself! Funny girl! Donny has a fun little tomboy in Sarah Rose, who loves all things outdoors and is becoming quite the little t-ball player while being coached by her Daddy!
Happy Father's Day Donny!

Dave~ Dad to Beckie, Bridget and Danny. Father to Tegan!! Dave has been a great Dad!
Always there to give advice, lend a hand, and share a laugh! His four children love and respect him so very much!
Happy Father's Day Dave! I love you!

Bridget commented this...

And to Dan! He's a great father to Kayla, his pup...and will one day make a really great daddy to someone special :-)

She is so right! Having a dog is great practice to parenthood!! I love you too Danny!

Wood Working...

Danny has been busy. In the wood shop.

Look what he made for me...
A raised cedar garden bed for my deck!
He worked really hard...
He has faith in me.

Enough faith to grow some vegetables and herbs.

He had a little help.

Dave does not have any faith in me, when it comes to growing anything.

I tend to side with Dave.

It looks so nice on my deck... so BIG!!
We planted strawberries, peppers, cucumbers, basil, oregano, tomatoes, and radishes, to name a few!
It's a good thing Danny is living with us for a few months before he heads out to Colorado... These things might actually have a chance of survival!! Keep your fingers crossed!


Feast your eyes on Levi posing in the infamous "camp tree" at the Murts in PA~

Seriously.... I could gobble him up!! He is about to have a cousin! Levi's Uncle Chad and Aunt Selena are in the hospital and word is.... ANY MINUTE NOW! Meme is just waiting to hear what Baby M's name really is.... ummm?

Mya finds her "HAPPY"...

After spending time in Venedocia with Bridget, Cyle, Cayden and Mya, I realized that I may have seriously been the one she reacted to~ by crying EVERY TIME I put her down to play. At home, she is a completely different little gem. She plays and talks and giggles and hollers~ I loved seeing this side of her! Isn't she adorable?

Speaking of ADORABLE~

Just look at these little fat feet~
They belong to him...
Bridget told Cayden he would have a surprise at home if he was a good boy at a work party they went to yesterday afternoon. He was a good boy. He wanted to know where his surprise was when he got home. I was his surprise. His face answering the door was priceless and the hug I got from this little man melted my heart. I walked in and squatted down to be engulfed into his embrace! He was so happy to see me. We had another great sleepover together and I got to spend the day with them today while Bridget worked. Doesn't he look cozy at nap time? Be still my heart.

Sharing my Tuesday with Communal Global~

Blessings - Laura Story - LYRICS

Cause what if Your blessings come through raindrops
What if Your healing comes through tears
And what if a thousand sleepless nights
Are what it takes to know You’re near
What if my greatest disappointments
Or the aching of this life
Is the revealing of a greater thirst this world can’t satisfy
And what if trials of this life
The rain, the storms, the hardest nights
Are Your mercies in disguise

How beautiful~ For my Bridget Diana

Country Boy

Cayden sure is becoming a country boy! He showed me his bunny. He showed me the barn. He showed me the "big, big, tractor. Then he heard his Daddy calling him~

"Gotta do chores Mem", he tells me! Cyle and Cayden water the pumpkins.
Then walk all the way back to the house to give Rudy, the bunny some water too!
This is a heavy bucket!
Rudy is sure thirsty!
Cayden is a good listener...
Daddy says time to water the tomato plants too.
Cayden watches everything his Daddy does and then wants to do it too!

"Cayden is a good helper, right?", he says. We say... "Say... I am a good helper, right?" Cayden doesn't get it!! He just smiles at us like we are nuts!

Daddy says to find some worms and Cayden knows right where to look!
"Got em"
Daddy shows Cayden to throw them in the dirt by the plants. Who knew?

I love taking them for wagon rides around the yard!

Both seem to really, really like it...
That is until I stop! Mya wants more!
She is a lucky girl to have a BIG BROTHER to look out for her!
"Meme... keep going so Mya stops crying!"

Cyle asked if I saw a difference in Cayden's strength, since he has been living in the country, since he was walking more, and since he had been spending alot of time outdoors running around?

My answer... Yes! Cayden is one busy little country boy!
