We Survived!!

What a spectacular weekend we had!

Fall weather is here... the nights are cold (the heat is on!)...
days reach the low 70's.
I am in heaven... this is my favorite time of year (and I love them all... but this is the very best!)

I know the animals are enjoying the chilly weather as well.

We had so much fun this weekend!
And we survived being outnumbered by grands.

Saturday morning we awoke to a beautiful sunny morning.

The moon was still high in the sky.... 
and rose again later that evening as a bright orange harvest moon.

We went to Tyler's soccer game in the morning 
and returned home with three extra Little People.

The day flew by... between changing diapers, feeding bottles...

feeding meals to Littles...

visiting the animals...

eating apples off the trees...



The day was filled from beginning to end... and the hours sped by unbelievably fast.

Tyler and his puppy Chester spent Sunday with us as well ( as well as Tyler's Mommy).
We took the dogs for a long hike in the woods...

and the old dogs taught Chester all about the woods.

You might notice that Chester has grown a little...
ok, well... his ears have grown a lot!

Have you ever seen such a little dog with such big ears?

The barn should be finished sometime this week.
The first coat is almost complete... and I am loving this color!

Things are still a little messy, but I couldn't wait to show you the color.
I will show you the rest of the barn and the out buildings when we have finished painting them.
I don't believe this week's weather is going to cooperate...
rain is on the way.

Our hearts go our to those experiencing the ravages of the recent hurricanes.
It is important that we do what we can to help those in need 
and there are many opportunities to do so.

If you have a particular interest in helping the animals that have been affected by the recent storms,
(especially those of you who have a fondness for horses)
Donations are being accepted by the American Association of Equine Practitioners:

Equine Disaster Relief Fund
AAEP Foundation

They will put all donations to good use!


  1. Even tho I haven't commented lately I'm still here for every post. What a wonderful weekend for you and the grands. Love the color of the barn!

  2. Love the barn color - ant those pup ears! My new puppy also has the same gigantic ears compared to her little self.

    Beautiful grands - enjoy!

  3. We got in hay yesterday. Had 330 bales. Loved that I was not pour sweat like we were in July. Have to re-rake and finish baling today. Probably another 20 bales and then it will rain again tonight/tomorrow.

    I love knowing how our hay was grown and that we have enough in the barn now for the hardest of winters, even if we don't get another cutting. Hubby is guessing that we have somewhere around 750 put up right now. We should get one more cutting and that will take us well into Spring until we start over.

    Your grands are all cute and look happy.

  4. i love the barn color. i am doing my daughter's place in gray and white. one of those white barn stars would look so nice on it! looks like you had a great weekend! and the steelers won! just barely but at least they won!

  5. Looks like a fun weekend . . .
    Tyler is looking taller and more like a boy than a "little!"
    Right you are . . . I have never seen such BIG EARS!
    How nice the cousins can enjoy play times together at the farm.
