Preston Gets Married

Randy's buddy, Preston, got married today. Preston and Jessica were married in the barn at the Allandale Mansion, a beautiful reception area in Kingsport.  The wedding ceremony was full of memories  like saying their vows quickly due to the falling rain and forgetting their rings, having to borrow some from people near by. They both had a good sense of humor and laughed and after the ceremony...the sun came out :)  The barn was decorated beautifully and we were so happy to share their special day with them.  God bless you both.

Higher Ground Easter Drama

It was a quiet Easter for us with the men gone.  Scott and I went to church, coming home to a simple meal.  After a restful day we headed to Higher Ground Baptist Church in Kingsport to enjoy their Easter Drama. My co-worker, Amy and her daughter, had roles in the drama plus a friend of ours was the choir.   The drama was awesome and we so enjoyed the reenactment of Christ's life, death and resurrection, complete with live animals.  Powerful Drama...He is risen indeed!

Good Friday Service Project

Our Sunday School class spent Good Friday in the most wonderful way... by serving others.   Mary, a member of our church and dear friend, is a single mother raising three kids.  We spent the day loving on her as we mowed, trimmed, cleared her gutters and yard and doing things that were difficult for her, like repairing her back deck.  It was an awesome way to serve the Lord. We love you Miss Mary♥

Landscaping Project

I've been unable to stop our Bear dog from digging in my planters through the years, and trust me, I've tried everything. I decided to put my flowers above ground and bought my galvanized tub at our local Tractor Supply.  My Saturday project turned out quite country.  I woke up the next morning to more of Bear's digging. At least my flowers were intact:)

Samson Lost His Antlers

I came home from work and saw that Samson had lost his antlers today.  If  you look in the second picture,  you can see the other antler way in the back field.  Scott was away in Mexico and I knew he'd want me to get those antlers if I could.   I got the keys to the elk gate and came up with a plan...I fed the elk to keep them busy and then snuck into the elk pen, quickly picking up the antler right by the fence. No problem.  Now for the antler way out in the field. I thought to myself..I can do this.  I ran as fast as I could, picked up the antler and made it back to the gate with my heart beating wildly in my chest.  Mind you, I'm 55 now and I was tickled pink I did it.  Won't Scott be so proud of me!

Flowers From Randy

The love of a son...wild flowers from Randy.  Thank you!  The next morning we were heading to church and found these guys on our front lawn. As you can see, we've got some fencing to do.
