my hens and chicks are going crazy this year!

These mean a lot to me as the start came from my grandma who has since passed in a really bad car accident. This year these need to be transplanted but I will wait now until they flower and bloom and spread them out after that. They are so beautiful!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

So....I have been absent because we have been moving. It just worked out that we had to move then right between Thanksgiving and Christmas. I would never advise anyone to do that. We did still manage to get a simple tree up and a couple of decorations. I have actually already unpacked everything I brought here so far, but still have some things to organize and other things to bring over from the storage locker. We did not officially even get the keys to the new place till Dec 17....and we took small loads over till the 20th when all the large stuff went. Little by little we got moved  but wow.....talk about stressful and it did not seem like Christmas because we had no downtime to even think about it much. I did try regardless, because I love Christmas.....it just seemed so odd this year....and no snow but TONS of rain and high winds!



Anyway, making time to just wish everyone a belated Merry Christmas and hope you have a blessed and Happy New Year!

sunset near Arcanum, Ohio (notice the old water tower - which is my favorite water tower around lol)


Noah took this photo on the way home one night as the sun was setting. I think it is a pretty good shot, especially since we did not realize the water tower was in the photo until we enlarged it!

Lincoln Funeral Train exhibit in Troy, Ohio - September 2015





















Today we took our first official field trip for the school year to see the Lincoln Funeral Train exhibit in Troy, Ohio. It was pretty awesome and we got to go inside as well and check things out. They have re-created everything (they said) as it would have been on the real train. The Presidential bedroom suite Lincoln never got to sleep in the bed. He was killed before that ever happened so his ride was in the casket.
