Okay, if you do not laugh at this then make a comment and say that it, "did not make you laugh" and I will try again! ;-) Although I do hope it will make you smile.
Here it is! ~

My favorite barbecue joint has a sign on the wall that reads, "If you're smokin' , you'd better be on the grill."

a basket of beautiful red apples sat halfway down the serving table at a small-town Church's potluck dinner. A sign on the basket read, "Take only one.....GOD is watching you."
A few feet farther along, diners found a second sign, this time on a big plate of cookies. It read, "Take as many as you like....GOD is watching the apples."

In the car in the middle of Colorado, a wife said to her husband, "Oh, dear George, I'm afraid the house is going to burn down. I'm sure I left my iron on back there."
George shrugged and casually replied, "The house will not burn down dear, don't worry."
"Now, how can you make a statement like that with so much confidence?" his wife asked in disbelief.
"Easy," George replied, "Because I forgot to turn the water off in the bathtub!"

Hope you enjoyed these jokes and I look forward to a comment! Although I am SURE I got you! :-)

cute and ADORABLE pictures of Jacob!~

I think you guys will have a laugh now! :-) We try new hair styles on Jacob because his hair is longer on the top and short on the sides, which means that you have allot of fun trying to fix it. For this first picture~ this happened when we took out the hair style below it. Which was HILARIOUS as well. Have fun! ;-)

These are not hair styles, but it is just another embarrassing thing to show him when he has, LORD willing, children and a wife. Sorry Jacob but it is really fun doing this! ;-p

He did NOT want to take my sun glasses off. I would say he likes them! :-)
Well, hope you have enjoyed these pictures as much as I have!


Now, you might think these past few blog posts are boring but I don't really have anything else to blog about! Sorry, but I hope you will enjoy these and look forward to SNOW!!! {These are pictures of our place last year.}
I will have more to blog about next week. Stay tuned! ;-) ~Jessica

Picture of Maria~

This is a picture of Maria that I was looking at today. I thought that it was kind of cool.


Alright, here we go! This is Jacob when he is only a year old, and it is THE cutest picture that I have EVER seen of him. I am sure that you will agree! Click on it so you can get the full will be worth it! This was taken at Frenchman's Bar last year~ TOO CUTE!!!!! I love you Jacob!


Raining leaves~
Leaves + kids = FUN!

Now you may be wondering if Levi landed on little Alainna.....he did! But she got right back up and continued her fun!

racing to the top!

Climbing up the pile to repeat his un-ending rutine of jumping off the truck. What a boy!

Levi having an absolute BLAST getting dirty. As you can see! :-)

Felicity is not expecting the load of leaves that will attack her as soon as she lands. Watch out!

Alainna, taking a frog leap into the leaf pile. ;-)

"Victory is mine!" Levi shouts as he sucessfully jumped off the truck with no broken bones.
levi will never stop making me laugh.

Siblings. :-)
Hope you enjoyed our fall pictures! ~ Jessica

Thank the LORD for a wonderful harvest!

We have been blessed with a plentiful harvest this year, thank the LORD! Although keeping a garden is hard, you will, LORD willing, be well rewarded for your hard work. Here are some pictures of our blessing~ Caitlin putting her hand on our green beans to show how much they were. We had about 5 of these. Don't worry, we canned them! ;-)

Sorry that this picture is blurry, but these are the first three peppers we harvested. Aren't they so cute?

Our white potatoes~

Wonderful, wonderful tomatoes! They kept us well stocked for a long time! We enjoyed canning these as well!

These are a few of our thousands of cherry tomatoes~

Our green beans~

Our first attempt to grow potatoes. We were very happy with the results!

Our turnips came plentiful~

Papa, taking dominion over his land. ;-)
