Prayer Request

I am asking for prayer for my friends Steph and Chris Hecknauer. She is a friend that goes way back! ;) Well, a few years ago after her and Chris got married a few months in they found out he had cancer, and it was on his face, under his eye. And due to the fact they had to take out cheekbone, (amongst teeth and other things) his eye is left somewhat unsupported. That's why he wears the eye patch. Very scary stuff. He had surgery to remove it and other treatments and seemed to be doing well up until a little while ago. Steph's Mom sent me a message last night to ask me to remember them in our prayers because Chris now has an inoperable mass that has attached to his pancreas, stomach, upper intestines, and numerous blood vessels. He's to start radiation shortly. They have had a very rough last 2 weeks. If you could remember them in your prayers to that would be awesome!! Thank you!!

Nothing Runs Like A Deere

Our new John Deere lawn mower and dump cart!! We just love it!!!!

Starting to Landscape

David has been pain stakingly trying to get all these shrubs planted. It is alot of hard work. He had to dig up all the sod first, which is half the battle. But little by little it's getting there. It will look really nice once it's done! It already has added alot. Here are a few shots of what we have done so far. Before mulch.
After we put black mulch down.
Looks nice!!
Planted 3 Oriental Spruce on the bank.
Along the garage.

Finally got all the sod dug up on this side.
Tried to place where we want things to go.
It's getting there!

My flowers. They look even better now from when I took these a week ago.
Picked this wooden thing up at a craft show last fall. I really like how it turned out!!
I tried something different this year with my baskets. Again, they look much better now!! But I did Pink Verbenas(I think that's what it was called) , Waterfall, Vinca vine, and small purple wave petunia's.
Other end of my porch.

Mother/Daughter Banquet

Pretty decorations! Country, I love it!!

Connie Forney and Kara Plank put on the skit and it was very funny!!
Mel, Dee and Deonna.
Mom and I. I think this is actually a pretty good picture of us! :)
I am way behind in blogging so this is old of course. This was the Mother/Daughter Banquet that her Church puts on. I really like going to them. This was only the 2nd time I ever went to one. It's nice to have something special for Mother's!! All the ladies did a nice job putting this together!!
