Tulips in Bloom

Our tulips are in bloom! Brian and I planted these bulbs last fall, and we've so enjoyed seeing them pop up over the last couple of weeks.


I just love the colors! This makes me so happy!

Break from the Cold

Finally, a break from the cold! It's been downright chilly here in southwest Kentucky for the last several days... or weeks... I don't know anymore. However, today was absolutely beautiful with temperatures in the 60's and full sun. We got right to my favorite place in Bowling Green, Chuck Crume Nature Park


While on our walk, the sun was in just the right position for us to play with shadows. Obviously, one of the children was really into this.

Gingerbread Village

This afternoon, Porter and Stella worked on building a gingerbread village. The whole process went better than I had expected with only one of five houses breaking (providing a yummy snack for hard-working kids). They even collaborated well together too... thank you, Jesus!


Check out their finished work:

Downtown Delight

This evening, we enjoyed a wonderful stroll through Bowling Green's downtown Christmas light display at Fountain Square Park while drinking coffee from Spencer's and eating cookies from Little Fox Bakery. What a delight!

Ornaments for Cardinals

Cardinals have been visiting our backyard lately, so we thought we would make them some peanut butter birdseed ornaments. I think they came out pretty well.

Christmas Lights Are Up

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas as the Stephen house! Brian has been working hard in getting Christmas lights up in the front and back yards. 


I can't seem to get a decent photo of our lights at night. This is the best I have been able to do (which is not saying much, clearly):

The Joys of Homeschool

This just might be the life. Here's Stella sitting comfortably in a giant, bean bag chair while she reads Epic! books on her iPad and has her dog closeby to keep her company.

Bored in the Car

This is what happens when Daddy runs into Sam's Club and leaves us in the car for 15 minutes:

Cotton Candy Lane

Oh, how I love Chuck Crume Nature Park in Bowling Green. The leaves are the most beautiful pinkish-red right now.


Stella calls this stretch of the trail, "Cotton Candy Lane." It's even more beautiful in person.
