Saylor's One!!

Saturday this precious little girl turned one!! We just love her so much!  She is such a happy little sweetie and makes our hearts melt.  She had a rocky start, but, she's is doing so well now.  She is crawling, loves to play patty cake, and just has the sweetest smile all the time.  Well, maybe not when she's needing a nap! lol  Happy 1st Birthday, little Saylor Grace!! We love you!!

Little Boys At Mema's House

These little guys are such fun, and they always bring a smile to mema and papa's face.  Marshalene and the boys came over Saturday morning and hung out with us for awhile.  They are such loving happy little boys, and we are so blessed to have them in our lives!

Snowy Morning!!

Awesome, another snowy morning!!!   I love these kind of days when you can look out and see God's wonderful provision and enjoy some down time, for some people anyway.  Thinking about those though who have to drive in it which Bob does as a van driver for MAGB.  He had to make an Enid run this morning right in the thick of this, so praying for a safe trip home for him. 

Woke up to this......
and this, soooo...

sounded like a good idea to have this for breakfast, oven baked egg beaters western omelet, and gluten free homemade bread, cinnamon toast made on my George Foreman grill that Scott got us for Christmas!! Yummm

Bob's Favorite Cole Slaw

 Bob loves this cole slaw, actually we both do. It is so easy to make and goes really well with our quick lunch of sandwiches and chips at noon. The recipe is below.

Apple Cole Slaw

1 bag of cabbage slaw
1 or 2 apples (unpeeled) , chopped
1/2 cup chopped walnuts.(optional)
Handful of dried cranberries
2 cups light mayo
2 tbs. lemon juice
4 packets of splenda or stevia, I use 2 of each.
Mix well, then pour over cole slaw mixture, and mix this well until all is covered.  This keeps very well refrigerated for several days, if it lasts that long!!

Valentine's and Anniversary Day!

Rose from my best friend and hubby of 23 years.  We were married 23 years ago in a little Baptist church in Las Vegas, both having lost our spouses.  We have had our ups and downs as all couples do, but have shared much joy, and with our union God has blessed us with a total of 7 children, 15 grandchildren, and 1 great-grandchild!

Recent Happenings!!

These are just a few of the events in our lives recently.  So thankful for our health and a full, busy life to spend time with our friends and family!! Each day has it's challenges, but we know that the Lord is with us every moment and will direct our steps if we will just listen for Him! We are blessed!! 

Sun going down and shining through the trees where Bob hunted deer this year.

Bob removing the cover from his deerstand to put up until next season. Bob didn't get to hunt much this year due to his upcoming heart surgery and recuperation.  He is doing great and hopes to get in some serious hunting next year!

Mema got to keep Remington recently while mommy and daddy had other plans.  He's such a sweet happy little guy, and you can see that Sissy Cat was keeping him company too!!
This is the innards of our Samsung tv.  Recently we had been having a lot of trouble getting it to turn on.  I did some research on the internet and found that this is a common problem with this model tv.  Anyway after watching a tutorial and getting the  needed parts, Bob and I set out last Saturday to see if we could repair it and save us several hundred dollars in repairs and parts bills. I had ordered the hopefully needed parts online, and we proceeded to dismantle the tv.   After removing many screws and getting the back off, Bob then had to remove the defective part which was soldered in, then solder the new one, (capacitor) in.
With that accomplished and back put back on we held our breath and turned it on.  Whoo hooo!! It came on first try and has been working great ever since, and the parts cost us a total of $14.95!  So now I  have a tv repairman living here!!
Praise the Lord, moisture in the form of some big, beautiful, wet flakes!! Don't know for sure how much we wound up with, but it snowed all day, and there were still several inches on the ground this morning!!! So, so thankful for the moisture!
Loved watching this coming down!!

Frosted Bushes!!

You can ask these little guys what happens on Thursdays, and they will tell you, "we go to mema's house"!  Since Hunter was about 3 months old mema starting keeping these little boys for the day, so mommy could get a little break, and mema could have some special time with them.  Winston stays with mema in the morning while Hunter is at pre-k, then we pickup Hunter, go to Taco Mayo to meet mommy and Remington for lunch, then Hunter stays with mema in the afternoon.  Well, now there are 3 little boys, and Marshalene said the other day that Hunter asked when Remington would stay with mema, and she asked him if he wanted to give up his time sometimes so Remington could stay with mema.  Guess he thought a minute and finally said  "when he, Hunter, was older and didn't stay at mema's anymore then Remington could stay at mema's"! lol  These little boys are such a blessing to Bob and I, and they do keep us young and moving!!
