A Sunny Sunday

Today was just plain beautiful and I couldn't help but capture some moments of the day.
The kids worked and played with Dad, and even came home with their 4-H piggies.
I just got my hands dirty in some rich soil...that had grown some very rich weeds.
They sure are hard to keep up with!
I love to just listen to the sounds of my happy family around me.
Giggling....the sound of Darren and the littles changing water.
The boys working with the calves and then on lawn mowers.
Peeps from the darling baby Banties.
And the cold wet nose of my favorite pup, Ruthie, begging for a pat.

Slowing down to enjoy the little moments...that's what it is all about:).








 Our old dog, Bobie.











  
Our new Birchin Cochin Banties.





Have a great day!
Perhaps you can slow down a bit and enjoy the sweet moments:).

PS I'm making your flower baskets for Mother's Day that you showed us how to do last year. :-)

So sweet, so simple, just right!

Could the piggies or chicks get any cuter?? Oh my, I think I will now have to move in with you all! ;)
