Heavenly Father, on Thanksgiving Day
We bow our hearts to You and pray.
We give You thanks for all You’ve done
Especially for the gift of Jesus, Your Son.
For beauty in nature, Your glory we see
For joy and health, friends and family,
For daily provision, Your mercy and care
These are the blessings You graciously share.
So today we offer this response of praise
With a promise to follow You all of our days.
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone! Continue reading
Happy Halloween! This year I really wanted to be a Dalmatian puppy just like my best friend Penny! She has been with me since the day I was born and I couldn’t think of a better way to show her how much I love her than to dress up just like her for Halloween. They say imitation is the biggest form of flattery you know! So here we are! Continue reading
Owen’s Farm is a great little place to get in the spirit of Fall by picking pumpkins, feeding the animals, running through a maze and going on a hayride. There are lots of opportunities for cute pictures too! It was a gorgeous day when we went with our friends and we had a blast exploring the place and having a picnic under the big oak trees.

We finally made it to San Diego late on Friday night and Mom had a bag full of surprises ready for me to kick off our adventure. A new Ariel dress-up and Ariel nightgown to go along with the Sea World theme. We stayed at the San Diego Country Estates in Ramona (which is about 45 minutes northeast of downtown San Diego) and it was wonderful. Our room was gigantic and the people there were super nice. They even gave me free ice-cream whenever we stopped in at the front desk! It wasn’t fancy or anything but they had free movies, free tennis, shuffleboard, swimming pool and arts and crafts everyday. Plus, it was quiet, peaceful and BEAUTIFUL up there! Continue reading
Well, Grammy and Papa bought an RV. For years we’ve been trying to talk them into getting a motorhome so that we could travel the country and experience all the wonders of the world. Well, they finally DID IT!!! They found the perfect RV to fit all of us and bit the bullet. After all, Papa is retired now and isn’t that what retired people do? Now we’re ready to hit the road. Yeah Baby!! Continue reading
We put on our sun hats, grabbed our butterfly nets and ventured out one morning for a backyard nature walk. Our mission was to walk slowly and look closely for unique things in nature. Small flowers, tiny blooms, porcupine burrs, dried grasses, and of course, all living things. Continue reading
For one of our special summer outings this year we decided to take a trip to the American Girl Doll Store to have our dolls ears pierced. We also made reservations at the Bistro for lunch. It was time to put on some cute dresses and glam it up for our girls day out. Continue reading
This year, a few weeks before Father’s Day, my cousins and I ventured into Papa’s shop to make some wooden boxes for our handmade Father’s Day project. A neat little thing we’d seen online and thought it would be fun to make. A custom bottle opener with a box for the caps to be captured and saved. Continue reading
