Let it rain, let it rain, let it rain!!!

We've gotten quite a bit of rain over the last two days, and the creek, and the bottom pasture are really flooded! I went around and took some pics and videos this morning - it's has been years since I've seen the water this high!!! 

looking out towards the Bottom pasture

running water in the ditches

the 12 acres

out behind the cabin on the land

where the trees aren't - that's where the creek is! :)

pretty clouds

this pond is all-the-way full!!!

the dock is almost underwater!

Daddy has a pump and pipeline set up to pump water into the pond

But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
-Matthew 5:44-45


These pictures were actually taken a few months ago, but somehow I never got around to posting them for some reason....I'll tell you why later! ;)

We had the 3 little Beeman kiddos over for the day, and babysat them so their parents did some things...

Going out to see the animals

And now for the reason I haven't posted these yet.....I have a very good excuse! :)
I had a special guest for supper that night! :)
Samuel came over and officially asked me to enter into a courtship with him, and of course, I said that I would! :) Andrew sneaked this picture of us while we were sitting around the table after supper talking - well, Samuel, Mommy, Daddy and the boys were talking, I was a little to shy to say much! :)

And, today is two months exactly since that day! Happy-two-month-anniversary, Samuel!!!!!!   :D

Martin Luther King Day

I usually don't pay much attention to this kind of holiday, but this year was a little bit different! :) You see, Samuel got of school!!! So, He, Bekah, Esther, Faith and Lizzy came for the day! And trust me, we packed in as much fun as we could!!!!! :D

First on the agenda was to part out about 250 chickens - and no, I didn't get a picture of that!
Then we played several games of volleyball, lunch, then played a few more games! :) Then we went for a hi the 5 acres Daddy bought a few weeks ago! This was my first time to set foot on the place, but Daniel and Andrew had been on it before.

walking out to it - it's down the road a ways from our house
Sarah, Liz, Bek, Faith, Andrew, Samuel and Daniel

I was kinda surprised there wasn't that much underbrush and briers as I was expecting :)

This is when you're very glad you wore your rubber boots! :)

looks like it could be in a movie, almost

Me taking a picture of.....


walking around to the 'bridge' over the creek

Daniel was very nice, and walked across first, so that we knew it would hold us! :)



Bek, Sam and I follow Liz across

I don't know where it came from or who built it, but this tepee thing was way back in the woods!

Do you fit in there, Bek? 

Andrew and Esther crossing another creek



I thought that this tree looked I took a pic.... 

Faith!!! :D

Trying to get a group shot everybody....

This picture cracks me up, for some reason.... :)

Everyone but Sarah....

Then we found an obliging old fence post that was in just the right place to set the timer on the camera and get all of us in it!!! :D

This is like, almost all my best friends in one picture!!! :D
Esther, Bekah, Faith, Liz
Hannah, Daniel, Peter, Samuel, Me, Sarah, Andrew

After we got back from the walk/hike, we went for a ride in the back of Samuel's truck!!!

Me and my new best friend! my cup runneth over!!! :D

I had a total blast today, hope y'all did as well!!! wish there was a holiday celebrating a random person from history more often!!! ;)

Oh, and FYI, surfing on rocks with a tailgate doesn't exactly work...... :D
