Two medieval princesses are always better than one. Actually, Aspen is recreating a character from a Waterhouse painting, Ophelia.

Wedding Reception in Levelland

Sunday, June 14 –

We had a fun time visiting the Brashears over in Levelland and wishing their nephew Christopher and new wife Cami a happy marriage. The menu featured BBQ brisket and all the trimmings. Their beautiful party barn and outdoor space was the perfect place for entertaining.

As the party was breaking up, approaching storms were darkening the western skies. When we got to Lubbock, this incredibly awesome shelf cloud was covering the skies.

Family Dance at Turkey

Saturday, February 14 –

A fun evening was had by all. Lots of music, dancing and food–what’s not to like? Thank you to all who came. It’s not easy to get homeschoolers together, we’re all so spread out, but it’s worth the effort when you see the kids having so much good, clean fun. Besides, we all know homeschoolers need lots of socialization…


Josiah’s Birthday Party

Thursday, February 5 –

Just a little get together over at the Phipps to celebrate the big occasion.


Christmas at the Pringle’s (almost)

For the last few years we have enjoyed our Christmas get-togethers at Misty and Kevin’s. Again this year we were looking forward to it. However, at the last minute (due to unforeseen plumbing issues) we had to move the party to mom’s house.

It was as fun as ever. Lots of food, family and love.

Christmas Caroling

Tuesday, December 23 –

A group of young people braved the freezing weather tonight to visit a few homes around town and do some caroling. When they got back, the ladies of the church had snacks and hot drinks ready. They sang a couple of songs for us. Very lovely. Afterwards, they stayed late and played cards and games for a while.


Homecoming Dance


Saturday, June 14, 2014

We had a great turn out on Saturday at the Turkey Gym. We loved seeing so many of our friends, old and new, having fun together. It was a little hot, but that didn’t stop the dancers.

80th Birthday Party


Friday, June 13, 2014

We had a surprise birthday party for mom (Granny, as we all call her) on Friday night. She thought it was just a get together for Atlanta and Jordan, and was surprised to find out everyone had actually gathered in her honor. Her actual birthday is Monday the 16th. She shares her birthday with Laredo who will be 20. She turned 60 the day he was born.

It will be held in Turkey, Texas at the old gym. It will start at 6 pm. Bring finger foods to share and bottled water for your family. Even if you can only swing by and see the Tennesseans, you’d be welcome.
