{Counting gifts} Thankful For September's Abundance


Storing away sunshine for a rainy day...
Taking time to note God's work in my life especially with the very little things. I'm thankful for all the gifts in life.  Listing gifts helps me to keep perspective to thank God for all His blessings.

A place to sit a spell
A good hands-on school day
With homemade play dough for the win.

Bouquet of wild flowers the girls picked 

Having Father over for dinner. Working through issues, getting everything back on track.

Love to see Nick serve

Date night
Cause he can be silly, the light above us was really cool and when they say flour-less cake they mean fudge.

Old house to "new" house facelift

Being needed..first thing in the morning
Hey Molly we sat under the stars and had hot chocolate.
Aw that sounds like fun!
I would have told you if I thought you wanted to come.
Just catching up on each other's lives
4H meeting fun
Ceci's forgiving heart
Hand in mine
Always something beautiful to see on a walk through the 'hood.

Euly handed me a bowl of cookies and cream, not knowing beforehand blue bell had resumed production of anything besides chocolate and vanilla.


Hope wouldn't leave me a long to go on a walk, so she had to pose with the flower for venturing.

Shelter!

The roof over our heads.

Church events to force me back into activity.

Forgiving gossip.

Lilly's first day of CCD and her reciting the story of two kings and an angel and the Cross.

Lilly's first day of science day, and seeing she need to practice left handed scissor skills. 

A day at home with no extra activities.

Hope independently surviving.
Gold tipped eyelashes

Stargazing, bugs and all.

Having a hard time, wearing down indifference to humility.

A long sleep after many sleepless night.

Lilly chachacha birthday song to Papa.

CCD kickoff

Katrina's thoughtfulness.


Euly's compassion and dedication to our animals.

Skeet is fun!

Practicing target shooting

Nicks fast thinking shooting the raccoon off the back porch.

Glow stick party

Getting opposing advice on serious concerns from Kathy and Traci. So thankful for real conversations.

Science experiment mummifying apples: fail. There were noticeable differences but my little scientist hoped for the mummified apple would still look as it had pre submersion in the baking soda salt mixture. Looks like we need to see some mummers at museum.
Clinging to our guns and our religion... Proudly so.

What all a simple pair of gloves can inspire.

Sunset walks

Living in big sky country
A flair for the dramatic.

A lesson in bees.

Max's porch.

When that guy asked my 13 year old if she was the mom to my 5 year old...not in our world, man.

Back at Arbor

A pool to ourselves

Practicing for the eradication of varmints

Rode it until it died, it gave all it could! 

Goofballs.

"Silly sister friend jump"
Best friends
