First, we got to have a little down day by supporting an event our church participates in every year. It is called the Sportsmans Banquet. All proceeds go to support the Ronald McDonald house in Memphis, TN. There were alot of things to see and alot of things to do. I found my next new toy some day.Oh yea my next toy. Ill take ya for a ride on my big green Tractor. photo photobucket-1970-1361658045320_zps491a5b6a.jpgpar

Dakota was walking around with one of his school mates. You know hes too old to be seen with MOM.par

They got Tinas roof put on her house. Now Audrey and Casen have a new roof. David is very proud of this. Matters have been discussed between Nanny and David concerning Tinas house and affairs. This was one great accomplishment.2013-03-14_15-25-26_212 photo photobucket-32471-1363367784041_zps83484f6d.jpgpar

Nannies house is coming along. Finally heard from her insurance and she doesnt have to tear down and rebuild. This was a prayer answered.2013-03-21_08-02-11_910 photo photobucket-10353-1363955428890_zpsbd05cd53.jpg 2013-03-21_15-26-29_211 photo photobucket-4767-1363955383569_zps6698c700.jpg More has been done since I took these pics. They have put a new metal roof on, which looks good. And they have replaced all vinyl siding. They are working on inside now. She wants to be done before Mothers Day. She is so ready to be in her own home again. She has enjoyed Tinas. But there is no place like home. Trust me I know.par
par
As far as our house goes. We have had one trial after another. First we had to get moved in. Poor Dakota he was so tired. We knew we didnt have much longer til Daddy was going to be home and we wanted everything perfect so we kicked it in high gear.Bless his heart he's so tired of moving stuff....... photo photobucket-39282-1363721338338_zps57b80c10.jpgpar

Our kids have been so awesome.We put down some hay and made a walkway. I swear they were working at some point.I promise they were working at some point..... photo photobucket-59514-1362874489950_zps0e794d7a.jpg We got to cleaning and unpacking stuff.par
par
We got our furniture delivered and set up. My mom and Dad came up the day they delivered and helped unpack and put away things. I tell you, after almost three months of sleeping on a couch my body was so appreciative our new bed. My daddy had to be the first to try out the new couch.2013-03-16_13-57-20_57 photo photobucket-54365-1365464047469_zps75218272.jpg My momma was a great help putting stuff away. She wanted to help so bad. She does know how much I appreciated her.par
par
There has been some stress due to after a week we discovered the microwave didnt work. So dear honey gets on phone, finds one, tells me to go to Lowes and pick it up, and have our guy install it. Daddy helped with that. Then our washer and dryer came and we oooed and awwwwed over it. It is digital and fancy, I cant even begin to describe all the bells and whistles on this thing. Yes, it sings a tune when the cycle is complete. I love it. Ive never had anything like it. My Prince charming is spoiling me.2013-03-19_17-26-05_291 photo photobucket-65029-1365464015522_zpsdbc14993.jpg Me and Dallas checking out my new washer and dryer...daddy did good. photo photobucket-4333-1363719833965_zps9128d7f1.jpg My prince said nothing but the best for his princess. He knows Im a simple person and dont ask for much, thats why hes spoiling me while he can.par
par
About a few days later, the refrigerator goes out. Now, my prince is getting tiffed by now. You cant sale a furnished home and nothing work. So we replace it. Again, he spoils me. Freezer in the bottom and side by side. Again I love it.par
par
He is ordering things for the house and having them sent to the house for me to open. It feels like Christmas around here. We got a new set of dishes.My prince charming is spoiling me. This is our new dishes. photo photobucket-56432-1363281285917_zps336d0af4.jpg We are trying to create a mountain lodge look. Do you like. Well look at these.Dining room chandelier photo photobucket-42548-1364074469666_zpsdab26ef5.jpg My new living room ceiling fan. photo photobucket-17026-1364070944112_zpsdfaa505f.jpg 2013-03-15_22-31-44_481 photo photobucket-16053-1365464095729_zps505c0acc.jpg Deer horn chandilier in dining room over table. Deer horn ceiling fan in living room and Deer horn lamp in bedroom on both sides of bed. I have valances and curtains coming soon. David has nothing better to do than shop online and send. lol Bless his heart he is so stressed out and bored. He has survived two snow storms and single digit temps.par
par
Im constantly taking pics and sending them to him so he can be a part of whats going on. Here is a pic of the house at night.2013-03-06_19-53-02_343 photo photobucket-34203-1363367826552_zps61ed3d47.jpg He said it was beautiful. He loves this view too.My new home sweet home.....surprise...... photo photobucket-2844-1362788911795_zpsa20ff03c.jpg What he really loves is this…..OK I can't stand it any longer. Ill let you have a sneak peek. That's all u get photo photobucket-13490-1362677565932_zpsc8dd4f38.jpg Our beautiful fire place. He made me promise not to use it til he got home. Because of safety issues. Yes Sir.par

Well a few days later they come to hook up the heat and air. The heat is fine, just needed a new thermostat, however the air didnt. This made him hit the roof. But its not something I will go into discussion cause its long. To make a long story short. They will be replacing the unit at no cost to us, because its nothing that the words, Lawyer, lawsuit and Better Business Bureau want fix. You see, the set up crew has also failed inspection twice. They thought since I was female and the man of the house was gone they could take advantage of me and just throw it together and I wouldnt know the difference. Little did they know I was taking pics of everything and had pics of this home when it was in AL. You see, before and after, and nothing matched. Well they listened now cause honey came home a few weeks early and surprised everyone.par
par
Yep, you heard me right. My honey surprised us one day and just came driving up the drive way. Of course I screamed and scared Dallas half to death til he saw what was wrong. We both ran outside and just ran to him. Dakota was at school. We all needed this. Daddy could finally enjoy our new home with us and take care of business. You know the first thing we did……get your mind out of the gutter……it was cold a little longer so guess what……we lit our fireplace and enjoyed it for two weeks……we had it going when Dakota came home from school.Love love love my fireplace.......don't you wish your fireplace was hot like mine....,.. bwahhhhh photo photobucket-28005-1363987657070_zpsc06b827f.jpg My prince charming photo photobucket-8292-1364949638767_zps9260e66c.jpgpar
par
Needless to say we didnt have everything put away or perfect for his return, but his surprise was far better. He can finally come home where he belongs and relax and enjoy this with us. I have cooked alot of his favorite dishes for him. I love my new kitchen.par
par
Every holiday we have cook outs at Nanny’s but this time for Easter we couldnt because they werent done with her house. And David still is not ready to go to his sisters house. He came up with the idea of having it at our house. So, we kicked it in gear again and had it at our house. This was a reunion under better circumstances that David needed. He really enjoyed himself and so did everyone else. Everyone loved our home. I was glad to share it.par
par
Here is Nanny and one of Davids brothers Calvin.2013-03-30_16-15-24_10 photo photobucket-3665-1365463939995_zps0c59418b.jpg More family members.2013-03-30_16-13-20_869 photo photobucket-59280-1365463959675_zps185d34da.jpg 2013-03-30_16-16-50_81 photo photobucket-39418-1365463920554_zps1a3a73c7.jpg 2013-03-30_16-18-21_14 photo photobucket-65028-1365463889204_zps0b2581ad.jpg First dixon get together at our house......priceless. photo photobucket-46375-1364693682437_zps9a073119.jpgpar

I did have more pics but the lighting just wasnt right. Earlier that morning David and Dakota had already hid 60 eggs down the hill. It did not start raining til around 1pm. We said what the heck and let them hunt in the rain. Us girls were sissys and didnt want to get wet so the guys took the kids outside to hunt in the rain. They didnt care. They had a ball.Us girls are a bunch of sissys while the dads are braving the rain helping the kids hunt eggs. photo photobucket-36057-1364680687208_zps79f1e20d.jpgpar

Sister Baby spent the night with us and we just had a good time in the kitchen. We made bread, biscuits, corn, baked beans, greenbeans, chicken, mashed potatoes, and chocolate oatmeal cookies.Sister baby helping with supper. We've made bread biscuits corn baked beans greenbeans chicken mashed potatoes and chocolate oatmeal cookies. photo photobucket-41671-1364254154458_zpsc0100fa5.jpgpar

Spending time with dakota….Sister baby and her Dakota watching duck dynasty...... photo photobucket-37036-1364177900429_zpsde44e7c2.jpgpar
Now for this: OK this is sitting on my dresser.....but I have to wait til mother's day. It is also being used as blackmail so I don't put david in the doghouse for anything. Hhmmmmmm photo photobucket-45937-1364260124686_zps7b236040.jpg David brought it home with him. It is sitting on my dresser. I have to wait til Mothers day to get it. He said it is also keeping him out of the dog house. Gotta love that man. We have been through alot since January, but it has only made us stronger and it has made us think of alot of things.par
par
That following Sunday after Easter David woke up and said, I have not been to my home church with my momma in years, do you care if we go this Sunday? I said of course not. We walked in and sat on the pew right beside her. You should have seen the smile on her face……PRICELESS!!!par
par
This has been one homecoming David has been so deserving of.par
par
Weve made more progress around here on the house. We have had gutters put up. We had a friend build another roof over our dogs kennels that the storm blew off. Got some camoflauge valances hung in the living room. Yep, they match our turkey table.par
par
Dallas is the one who every since January has really had a hard time coping with things. He has dealt with things in his own way. But when we first moved in, he loved his new room but was scared. He would come crawl into my bed before Daddy surprised us and came home, then he would sneak in brothers room in the middle of the night. It has taken him a long time to finally sleep all night in his own room. His world has really been turned upside down, but we are all going to be fine. Everything has happened so fast. There for a while he was not eating either. Now he is eating fine. We have just been going through the motions of school since January. Some days we struggle some days were just oblivious to whats going on. One day well get back on track. We just have 45 lessons left. Well get through it and just enjoy our summer.par
par
As far as Dakota goes with school. I have not been happy with his Algebra teacher all year. Several students have complained and so have parents. If the kids dont get it the first time, they try to tell him to explain again, his attitude is, take your book look at the examples and then figure it out. WHAT!!!!! No wonder their having trouble. You are the teacher, we pay you to teach……you teach it til they get it,,,,got it?>????? Dakota knows this is the last few weeks of school, he has to pass this or he cant take the requisite math for 10th grade. I do believe he will do fine, it just makes me mad that these kids have had to endure this allyear. God help that teacher.par
par
Around the farm were doing fine. Im milking and making cheese. Im so glad to have my milk again. As far as weaning goes. First I tried seperating babies and mommas, this was getting loud and stressful. Moms would be hanging around the boys in the boys yard:Its going to be noisy at my house today. Its weaning time and bobo and great granny Joe Joe is not happy. photo photobucket-22834-1363706760839_zps3ff1ae2f.jpg 2013-03-20_10-17-51_359 photo photobucket-34194-1363955452688_zps161ac247.jpg This was not helping so I just went and got the “bras” out. And already one smarty pants was trying to help another escape:Today is the day I had to put bras on some of my mommas. This is a whole lot less stressful on mommas and babies during weaning. However I have a Smarty pants whose already trying to help another one get out of hers. photo photobucket-35308-1364846533447_zps78f92852.jpg Now that they are not dependent on nursing anymore, I will start slowly seperating again. Yaz knows his job, he is to teach the boys to be boys. He is a great dad.2013-03-19_10-02-09_593 photo photobucket-56706-1363955513266_zpsaed18e60.jpgpar

Well, Ive tried to rack my brain and go as far back as I could remember so I could catch everyone up. Now that we are settling in, I might be able to keep up and it want be so long in posting. Sorry I have taken so long and thank everyone for being patient.par

About 4dfarms

I am a wife to an amazingly dedicated, devoted, and loyal husband whom God sent to me. I am a mother to two wonderful boys to whom I'd give my life for. Around here we homeschool, farm, garden, hunt, fish and anything else we want to do. Although I do have Rheumatoid Arthritis. Sometimes its hard for me to keep up. If it was not for my husband and two boys, I could not do some of what I do. They really do help me alot. We work together as a team in my home. We try our best to train up our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Yea, they slip sometimes and correction has to be made. Thats life. I want so badly to be just like the Proverbs 31 woman. My grandmother did an awesome job of it and Id like to fill her shoes.
