Happy Memorial Day

Remembering and honoring those who have lost their lives serving our great country.

And giving thanks to those who are still defending all of us.

In this picture I am sending my husband back to Iraq for 4 more months of protecting us.  We are at the airport in Kansas City.  HARD DAY!!

And of course, my other hero,  my dad in his navy hat. 

Very Proud Of Both Of Them!!!

Happy Memorial Day!!

5th Grade Assignment

Fifth Grade Assignment
Wouldn’t this be great if it was taught in every school.A fifth grade teacher in a Christian school asked her class to look 
At TV commercials and see if they could use them in 20 ways 
To communicate ideas about God.  
Here are some of the results: 

God is like. 

Aren’t you glad you have Him?                   Don’t you wish everybody did?

God is like.. 
He cares enough to send His  very best. 

God is like. 
He’s the real thing

God is like. 
. . . . 
He is the quicker picker upper.. Can handle the tough jobs…
And He won’t fall apart on you 

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  John 3:16

My Peony Bush



We had a row of peonies in our yard when I was growing up.  I loved them.  I loved the smell, the beautiful flowers to look at, and even the ants that crawl all over the buds.  Two fall seasons ago I panted 5 bulbs.  One of them never came up at all.  Three of them are very small with no buds on them.   And I have one that I am very proud of.

This is my very first peony bloom of my very own.

This peony bush has white and pink blooms on it.

   This beautiful peony bush smells as good as it looks!!  

This is my favorite flower.  Have you ever smelled a peony candle?  Just luscious!! 

 It takes me back to my childhood every time I see a peony bush.

This is a very long post, so sit down a spell. 

 My beautiful daughter, Kamille and her dad.

We did the flowers ourselves.  Ordered them from Sam’s online.  The handkerchief was my dads. We wanted to acknowledge him in some way.  I think it was pretty clear what the big embroidered “C” was meant for, to everyone that knew him.  


 The gazebo was decorated with white tulle giant blue hydrangeas and a small black teardrop chandelier. 

We had the wedding at the golf course at the Daviess County Country Club.  So the bridesmaids and the bride had to go for a ride! 

The good looking young man is my son, Nic and his date Megan. 

Two of my favorite men Nic and my grandson, Baby Michael.

We had a great turnout of people and the weather was perfect!!

Bridesmaids Lauren, my daughter, Kayli, Kamille holding Gracyn and Jamie with Kennedy standing in front sucking her thumb and looking like she might have a case of stage fright.  


We had a wonderful time with family, new family and lots of friends. 

The kids table was a huge hit!!  It was occupied all afternoon. 

 Grandma Burrell and Baby Michael.

 Me and Nic.

 Big Ran built this faux wall for me.  Here are the flowergirls/grandbabies in the shortest frame.  Sooooooooooo cute!!!!! 

I will do a tutorial blog on this for you at a later time.  It really turned out fantastic!!!!! 


 See, I told you the kids loved this area.

 I put branches up and hung tea light votives from them. 


The pews were decorated with big tissue flowers that we made.



The decorations under the tent. 


The tables had antique table clothes on them that I have just lying around the house. 


We hung a couple of chandeliers from the beam in the tent for sparkle. 



  The bride and grooms table.

 Aunt Marilyn, Uncle Gary and Aunt Debbie in the background.


 Some dance shots.  My brother, Bill, Aunt Marilyn and Aunt Sherri.

 We finished the night with sparklers.

I will have more posts on the wedding and some how tos.

We had a professional photographer take a lot of pictures.  I can’t wait to see them!!  I will post them as soon as I get them.
