Happy 12th Birthday Miss Tori!

This child is growing up fast......too fast!  I can remember being a child and having adults tell me I was growing up too fast.  I can also remember thinking, "are they nuts, have they lost their old mind?  Too fast?????  What are they thinking?????"  At the ripe old age of 12 you can only look forward to those of 13, 16,18 & the ultimate...... 21!   You want to be a teenager, drive a car, date and move on to being out and on your own. My birthday wish for Tori is to enjoy each year and not be in such a rush to wish away her youth.  Those years disappear much to quickly...

Ohhhhhhhhhhhh...what are those????

Miss Adelyn has found her toes and she loves them!  She just about stands on her head trying to get those little pinkies.  She is certainly showing her personality. We are enjoying this little one so much!  It's been a long time since there has been a wee one in our family...almost 11 years, but oh so worth the wait!

Thinking of Spring....

Halloween has just passed but my thoughts are with Spring. Usually this time of year makes me want to hibernate. Seeing all the beautiful tulips, daffodils and hyacinths in the Spring make me wish I hadn't been so lazy in the Fall. This year my plan was to be ahead of the game. Early in the summer, the hub and I prepared a flower bed for bulb planting in the Fall. All I had to do was purchase the bulbs and wait on a nice fall day to pop them in the ground. That day came and I DID pop those bulbs into the ground! Here's to hibernation!

A Deppen Halloween....

We had  great weather for the Beggers last night. The Deppens had a Halloween spread of chili, cornbread, dead mans toes, snacks, dips,apple crisp and lots of treats~ Abby passed out the treats, while Hayden, Tori, Shelden, Jade and Jacob went out in the neighborhood in search of treats. Baby Addy made her rounds as well....Have you ever seen a cuter little duck?

Shelden's Championship Game

Ok...here goes! Another attempt at adding information to the blog. I'm trying to add some pics and info about Shelden's football game on Sunday. Being new at this blog stuff, I'm never sure if the information I put in this little box will end up where I want it to on the page???? Ashlie helped me a bit on Saturday, but hey...that was three days ago! I would surely benefit from a class on blogging.
Shelden's team, the 49er's won the championship game! It was a beautiful day for a football game.

Ashlie, if you can read this.....

This is my first attempt to do a blog, bear with me please! I am hoping my daughter in law will be able to read this and will give me a crash course on blogging. I know a few things about blogging...there are many talented writers, quilters, sewers, cooks, photograpers, mama's, and the list goes on and on. I love to start my day reading blogs.....my family calls this a "habit". I think it's perfectly fine to check in with others, see what they are doing, get some inspiration and then begin my day. I am a bit apprehensive about my writing and grammer skills. The blogs I read are so well put together...never any spelling mistakes! How do you do it??????? One of my favorite blogs and probably the first one I "followed", is Soule Mama. Actually, I didn't even know how to follow her blog. I merely saved her link in my favorites and checked it everyday. I've since figured out a bit more about this blogging stuff. If you have any suggestions, can offer any advice, be my spell and grammer checker...please, jump in!
