Amazing!   This reminded us of the Honda Accord commercial.  Thanks to “Uncle Mark” who picked this video just for us!  (The boys love it!)

Farmgirl Favorites

We were on the Welcome Home Blog last night and found this adorable picture 🙂  You can go here to read the story behind it 🙂

Turn of the Century

While in Cleveland with Mommy last weekend, (hopefully a post to come soon!) we went to an amazing art fair, and this was probably my favorite vendor 😉  The website isn’t extremely professional-looking, but the products are top-notch.  I got to hold and feel just about everything you see on their website and they are amazing! The knitting needles and crochet hooks feel so good in your hands, not to mention they are very, very pretty!


Cute Quotes



Isaiah asked Mommy: “Is this today?”


We were sitting down to eat and Anna came to the table and asked, “What kind of food is this?”

Susannah replied, “Veggie tacos.”

She said, “No, no, no! I mean–is it Mexican?”



About five years ago, Charissa was overheard singing, “My Grandfather’s Clock”….only with a twist!

“…but it short.  Stop.  Never let it go, when the old man dies!”

(…but it stopped, short, never to go again, when the old man died.”)

    Wow! Just think of how long it took to make those crochet needles! Don’t you just love it when little children sing songs with their own version of the lyrics? I used to do that too. I just love your Farmgirl Treasures! 🙂

    I’m drooling over those knitting needles……and even though I can’t crochet, I am drooling over the hooks too! 😀

    The Rube Goldberg video is very funny! My Grandpa showed that to me, several months ago. 🙂 Very creative, yet I wonder how they had the time to do all of that!!!
