Kate, what does the cow say?

Kate loves her PawPaw's cows. She got to feed the calf in the pen at the barn this weekend . . . well, she threw several handfuls of oats inside the pen!

A Birthday and a Proposal!

What a wonderful weekend as we gathered the family together to celebrate Stacy's mother's 80th birthday! And then on Monday, Anna called with the exciting news that Zach had proposed -- and she said "yes," of course!

We're so happy to add a new son to the family -- but really we feel like he's been part of the family for several years now. Zach is so good to Anna, and we certainly wish them a lifetime of happiness!

Evidently the roomies were in on the surprise, and they ended the evening with an impromptu party with friends!

She hasn't set a date yet, but they're thinking late summer or early fall -- and maybe a destination wedding! I better start saving my pennies -- and going shopping!

We held the birthday party in our new barn which had lots of room for everyone, even though the walls still look a little rough! Becky Watson made the delicious cake -- and the food was catered by the new bakery in town, Heavenly Delights. If you haven't tried it yet, their chicken salad is so good!

Thanks to each and every family member and friend who helped make this a special day for Mary! Happy birthday, MawMaw!
