Merry Christmas 2018

We are still here and my how we've grown!!

This past year has been a whirlwind of mostly wonderful events…at the top of the list is the birth of the newest member of the Four Sisters Farm family who arrived mid-July after holding her parents hostage by waiting long after her due date of July1st! Of course, she was well worth the wait!  We are all looking forward to celebrating Christmas 2018 with a baby in the house. 

Pop and Grammy are adjusting more and more to retirement and to racing from one event to the next to try and fit in all the activities of our “awesome eighteen” grandchildren.  The kids are involved in all sorts of things, so we have attended school plays, presentations, vocal concerts, piano recitals, football, baseball and basketball games! We have also had kids out to the farm to make memories while their parents went on trips, dates, and appointments. This season is busy, but we know firsthand how quickly these years pass and we don’t want to miss out. Our youngest is five months old and our oldest granddaughter is a high school senior!

The "Growing Table" Family
Our family enjoyed gathering at the Christian Camp of Pop's and Grammy's home town for a reunion and celebration of her parents’ 60th wedding anniversary.  We also loved hosting as well as visiting family and friends in 2018.  We look forward to what 2019 brings our way.  If you get a chance, come see us! We’d love to have you! Grace and peace to you and yours.

Me and My Shadow

I'm told that when I was little, my favorite thing to do was to follow my Grammy around.  My Mom called me Grammy's shadow and I have always enjoyed that title.  I know I wasn't the only grandchild to tag along with Grammy anytime there was an opportunity; but I'd venture a guess that I was in her shadow more than most because my family was blessed to live so close to her and Grandad.  Now I have some of my own shadows from time to time and there is nothing sweeter.  I love each and every one of them more than life itself.
He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High Will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. (Psalm 91:1)
Keep me as the apple of the eye; Hide me in the shadow of Your wings (Psalm 17:8)
