Thank you for sharing and for the tons of smiles, you have such a lovely family. I especially loveeeee the last picture of that beautiful home. Have a Blessed rest of the weekend.
Hi Linda,Carthage has an abundance of beautiful old homes. Alas, we live in a small cottage, but I do enjoy looking. ~smile~ I was just looking through some old photos and was amazed at how my kids have grown.Blessings,Laura of Harvest Lane Cottage
I'm so glad my blog post today was of encouragement to you. You have a beautiful blog. Have a blessed Sunday, and do keep the faith. You know our Lord will do what is best in all that concerns you. That thought helped me a lot.
Hello there!So nice to meet you!I love your space here, and will be visiting often.Have a cozy evening! : )
Thank you for visiting my blog today. You have some beautiful pictures and show lots of memories. Come again any time, I always love having new friends. Linda
Me again!I loved your background so much, and had never heard of that site, so I went over to check it out! I found one I loved! Hope you don't mind! : ) Thanks for the inspiration!
Thank you Billie Jo! I just made a new friend with your name in my kids' homeschool co-op. I had to check your photo to see if you were her. I look forward to visiting you again.Blessings,Laura
I'm glad for you Billie Jo.
Thanks Barbara. You're so right. God bless you!
Such a beautiful family. thanks for sharing..[THey do grow up fast ,don't they?]
Dearest Laura, what precious pictures of your family enjoying the beautiful bounty of autumn :) It's always a delight to visit you!Love and hugs!
New follower - coming over from Linda's blog. I love October - your fall pictures are beautiful. I live in Arizona - no fall leaves here in Phoenix so I enjoyed looking at yours! Have a great weekend. I will be back to visit again!
Oh Deb, I would move! In fact, I did. ~smile~ But only about 45 miles so that I could live in a town filled with maple trees that give us beautiful reds, golds, and oranges. I'm sure Arizona has its benefits, too. I've been to the Phoenix area once... in summer... 113 degrees... warm swimming pool... melt your flip flops pavement... broken air conditioner in the hotel room. Next time, if there is a next time, I want it to be in winter! Do you have winter? ~smile~Thanks for following. Have a wonderful weekend!Laura of Harvest Lane Cottage
Thank you, Stephanie. I enjoy visiting you, too. I cannot believe how quickly the years have passed. Those little ones are now nearly grown. Hold your loved ones tightly while you can!
Too fast, Judy!
I love looking at all your family photos. It's crazy how fast time flies! Enjoy the Fall weather and all the simple joys within them!Enjoy your week, Laura! Hugs,Amy
Thanks, Amy. I really put this up so that my kids wouldn't see the review that follows. I've been amazed to see how many comments this post has received. Your boiled apple cider looks amazing! All I need is one more yummy thing to crave!Blessings,Laura
Hello, Yes, those kids are growing up! Enjoy and take it all in, as we both know the snowflakes will be coming soon enough! I love being home and cozy and I also enjoy the cooler nights. Hugs, Roxy
I love that I'm home more on fall evenings than spring evenings. 4H is only once or twice a month instead of once or twice a week. ~grin~ Even the days of driving everyone to meetings will be over before I know it.Have a wonderful week, Roxy.
Loved the photos..you have more Fall color than we do....your Daughter did a great job capturing the tree.Mama Bear
That's from a previous year, Mama Bear. We don't have that much here yet. Blessings!Laura
Thanks for sharing - you have a lovely family, and it is so encouraging to see how you obviously love the Lord and each other!
