Old House, Freckles & Enjoying Our Children



Back on July 18Th I had wrote about finding a new friend Leslie at My Country Home. Her family knew my family when we lived in PA. I was going through pictures and I found this.I thought I would post it to show where I use to live. This picture was taken in 1967. Our house was called by some the Pink Hilton. And from what I heard after we had sold it and moved, our house was turned into a hunting lodge and now I don't know what it's used for. I have been told that it has not been taken care of and the trees around it are huge. I saw a few pictures from many years back that my youngest brother had taken and it had changed a lot. I am still not sure why we moved. I wish we could have stayed there till I was older. I was 4 and 1/2 when we moved to Arizona. I am not wild about the desert climate or the view I am more of a colder climate and pine trees type of gal. My memories are vague but I do have some. So there is my trip down memory lane today. This is a picture of Gabby, (the youngest) and striving to be the class clown every year. (So she tells me.) The picture was taken right after she woke up this morning. She had drawn with a marker on face freckles last night before she went to bed. She wanted to wear them to school and I said no and you need to wash them off, but not before I get a picture.
Gabby is one of those kids who is constantly making people laugh by the things she says and asks. We were reading scriptures as a family one night a while back. It was Gabby's turn and the word was concubines and she said concubunnies! It is those kinds of things that brings joy to our home daily.
It is so fun to see the great personalities of each of our children as they grow and change. I was reading a blog yesterday, right now I don't remember who it was, anyway she was talking about her sons going off to college and missing the little everyday things about them it made me think a little more about how much I do enjoy the little things. I need to enjoy them more even the little daily things .
Have a great Friday! Hugs, Bobbi Jo

Bobbie Jo,
I want to go over there in the daylight and take photos for you. Most of the time I only get across that road at dark...when we're spotting...so that's not a good time. It's really only like 3 miles from here. I just need to go up our road a bit and I'll be on Bush Hollow and then that connects to Spotts Rd. One of these days I could just take myself up there and snap a photo for you!

Cute picture of Gabby :)

Have a great day!

Concubunnies!! How funny, and actually a good description of bunnies if you think about it!

Love the freckles too! My daughter came home from school one day rather upset with me, drags me into the bathroom and informed me that her teacher said you should never buy ivory. That it hurts the animals. At that time I used Ivory brand shampoo. Oh my gosh it was so precious. Took a while to convince her there was no ivory tusk in the bottle!
