Sweet Angie

Sweet Angie
It's been one year since you were taken from this earth. One year of sadness, of pain, of heartache.

You were not born of my body but you will always and forever be a child of mine in my heart. You will always hold a special place in my life.

You were very much loved. Very much wanted. I'm so sorry that the wrong people were able to make such life altering choices for you.When I sit and think about what you went through and how you must have felt it hurts my heart. It rips it to shreds.

The peace I have is in knowing that while you were here with you knew that you were loved. You knew that you were wanted.

I remember the smile on your face, your laugh, your little way of doing things "Angie style" and it makes me happy. It makes me smile to know that I was a part of your life and you were a part of mine.

I thank God each and every day that he gave me the privelege of being your second Mom. Of holding you in my arms, of loving you. I am thankful that you are no longer in pain. That no one can ever hurt you again but how I wish that things had been different.

I wish so much that you were still here on this earth. That I could still have the oppurtnunity to share you and your life with your family. But it is not to be and it is not for me to understand at this point. Maybe someday, maybe never.

We all love you sweet baby girl!

Making biscuits

First you roll out the dough.

Then you put it on the pan.

Then you have yummy biscuits.

It's finished

The fence is finished! 150 feet of new fencing.

It looks so different now that the old falling down fence is gone. Both the old wood and chain link has been replaced. So we now have new fence all the way around the house.

Once we get the front cleaned up I will take a picture of the front of the house.

Fence Progress

An update on our fence progress as we got a lot accomplished today.

We got the brackets and rails put up

Here's one half of the fence line with some rails up

And the other half of the fenceline before the rails got put up

Then we started putting up faceboards.

We got about 40 feet of faceboards up in the back and it looks so much better than it used to

We called it a day as the sun was setting and the sky was beautiful
