Special events in our family’s life:
Andrew made it to 18!
Scott finished his latest novel. Pray for publishing in 2012.
Olivia knows all of her states and capitols, to a song, of course.

Home Sweet Home
This year we moved from our comfortable apartment onto my mother-in-law’s land into “The Barn.” We started with no electricity or plumbing. Weird, we know. It’s been an ongoing adventure and challenge. When I first brought my grandson Ethan over to see where we lived, he paused in front of it and asked, “You live in the shed?” My niece called it glamping= glamorized camping. It’s been amazing to watch Scott transform it into our home. Olivia’s Christmas wish was for her own bedroom so she could have “some sense of normalcy.” It should be complete by Christmas morning.  Maybe in a year you can come over for a visit?
Olivia is now a fifth grader. Scott continues to homeschool her and she’s thriving this year. She is an avid reader and writer too. She’s in her second year of choir and piano. She’s asked everyone to give her $ for Christmas because she’s saving up for a saddle.

Andrew spent some of the year living with Trey in Round Rock, but then moved back to Southeast TX. He has a driver’s license and is working hard at a refinery. I’m proud of his accomplishments, but still pray for him. 
Our grandson, Ethan started kinder this year and is learning sooo much. I got to visit him at school for a lunch with grandparents. We love being his GiGi and Pops and hope to have more grandchildren someday.

I am still teaching technology to little ones in Mansfield as well as volunteering at Lifechurch. Tv and Traffick911.

Life is very busy, but we are blessed!

Romans 15:13  May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him.


  1. Thanks for sharing with us! You family is so beautiful, and I loved reading your blog. (= I miss you girl, and hope to see you again soon!

    I love the barn idea. We had that idea a few years back when we had our property, but decided on a different road. Now we wish we would have...lol Maybe at a another time..? If you ever need any painting help, I am an awesome trimmer. Keep that in mind (= Would love to help!

    Wishing you and your lovely family a very Merry Christmas & Blesses New Year!


  2. Hi Stace!

    I don't know if you'll remember me, but a good bit ago my family and I used to go to Lifechurch.tv. You greeted my family and I with a smile on your face every time we checked my brother's in for toon town. (And, sometimes I saw you on my way to serve in Under the Sea.) It was lovely to read this update on you and your family.

    I hope that your adventure in the barn continues to go well! It is, well, not really a story like yours, but when I read about your barn/home it made me think of the story The Enchanted Barn by Grace Livingston Hill. (That is one of my Momma's favorites.)

    May 2012 be filled with many more wonderful adventures and memory making moments!


    P.S. Olivia looks so lovely in the outfit she is wearing in the pictures! It warms my heart to see girls here age dress in such a lovely and sweet way!

    1. Hi Sarah,
      Of course I remember you and your amazing family.

      I will look into the story you mentioned. I love to read. Are you still writing?

      Also, I agree with you about the way young girls dress; it's a shame and sometimes I am so tempted to have a chat with their mommas!

      Take care,

  3. Awwww it was lovely to read your post. Glad all is well with all you guys :)
