Summer Turning into Fall

We still have some summer around here:) I decided to post a few of some "heart warmer" photos that I've taken lately...along with some "every-day" type photos.

"Pea Party"

I caught this out on my deck one day recently. Zac and Camille with piles of peas that they'd picked. They told me they were having a party. I love their healthy choice of a snack!

Zac's Fun

Zac loves to go pick up Jared and play with him lately. One day after his school lessons were done, I found him with the kids in the living room like this. Jared loves the attention.

"Chicken Out"

Last Sunday after church we were unloading the van. All of the sudden, we heard Garret calling loudly, "Chicken Out"! We looked and seen him catch it. He carried the poor wanderer around until we made him put it down to come in and eat:) He loves those things! Loves to chase them, watch them, and even let them out of the chicken house.

Bountiful Beans

I was so excited to get enough beans to eat for dinner many times AND to be able to can them from my own garden for the first time! So far, I've been able to can 15 quarts! And there's more coming. That might not sound like very many....but to us it is since last year we only had enough to eat for dinner different times.

So Sweet...

The other day Blayne, Alexa, and Chauntel went hunting. Garret and Camille woke up when they were gone and were asking where the big kids were. When they heard that they were coming home, they shot out of the house. I caught this...them waiting for the others.

And then this:) They definitely love one another!

Scrabble Time

The kids passing time tonight. Nights seem to be long without Daddy around! We're all looking forward to him getting home this weekend...but are enjoying the time also. Trying to do some fun things, staying up late all the time, scrapbooking, looking at old pictures, chatting and having slumber parties every night. (He's gone elk hunting) ~Love Mona


  1. Enjoyed all your pictures! What a great family life:) Laughed at the pic of Garret and the chicken!!

  2. That "chicken out!" pic is priceless! There's got to be a contest you could enter with that one..."cutest chicken farmers of america" or something:)
