emma grace's big girl room...

Okay, Kayla, here's your sneek peek!

Alright y'all, I rarely pic favorites around here from my work, but these letters have stolen my heart... L-O-V-E them! Really the pics don't do them justice. Thanks again, Kayla, and I hope you love your big girl room, EG.

ahhh, summer! I missed you, my old friend...

Okay, I'll start off with the joyful feeling of school being out. It was a long needed break for both us teachers and students. I will also say that this past school year was a very enjoyable one. Fast, but enjoyable. My students did their very best on their big test, and I was able to finish the yearbook on time... well, almost on time.

Cart and I have become ultimate loafers around the house and yard. I've managed to clean my ignored house and get caught up on some projects I had pushed back since spring break. Ben has been busy cutting up trees that have fallen in our yard and pasture from the previous storms. I look forward to all the lazy days to come and our upcoming road trip to Myrtle Beach, SC in June. Till then, I have several small orders to fill and DVR'd movies to watch. I am so thankful to have a healthy family and simple life. Thank you, Father for your many blessings.

does it get much cuter than this?...

Meet our newest addition to the Morris fam... This is "Jenny Lou". Carter thought of Jenny on his own, (very original for a female donkey) and my dad added the Lou. She is a doll and very gentle. She is also the spitting image of her daddy, our beloved Pedro. Pedro has been a popular attraction around our house and my parents (he is the 'prime stud') for several years, and I think Jenny is about to steal the spotlight! Check out those ears. Oh, and I think my own babe is pretty cute, too!

for sweet avery grace & her mommy...

Another baby love-bird! Once again, I'm in love with the birdy/twig/flower bedding. Makes me almost wish I had a baby g.....-nah!

The second pic is for her mommy's school room next year. Oh, how I remember how hard it was to go back to work after a summer off with my sweet newborn. Tears, tears, tears... Just remember it gets easier, Stephanie! Thanks again.

Mamas make the world go round...

My Cart and me last Christmas... I only hope to be half the mother to him that my mother was to me.

My mom & Cart about 4 years ago... singing her quack-quack song he loved.

Mama & I and one of our many livestock shows... she never missed a single event of ours.

Mama & I at some kind of 4-H or Ag Teachers' conference around '91... don't you love the bangs & glasses?

Mama & I at my great-aunt and uncle's 50th anniversary, serving punch circa 1987... big collars were the bomb, y'all.

My sister, mom, & I as a newborn, 1979... my sister looked really thrilled, huh?

Happy Mothers Day to all you mothers out there. I do declare this big ol' world would stop spinning without the mamas that keep it together.

for a sweet little babe to be...

The canvas in the top pic was created based on the other two pics of my friend Donna's nursery bedding. I love these sweet pattern and colors and just love the way it turned out! Can't wait to meet little miss Scarlett this summer!

for soon to be mr. & mrs...

This large (24 x 36) canvas is for a happy couple about to tie the big knot. Below is a place setting of their everyday china from the Kate Spade line. I just love the way it turned out! I think it will look perfect over their dining room table or buffet. Thanks again, Mrs. Di.
