It has been a long while since my last post and I am sure that many of you have even stopped checking in, BUT... my husband and I have been preparing our home for my parents as they are moving in with us. This past month I have been back in Arkansas, helping finish up the last few items that needed to be packed up before the movers arrived to move them out here.

Yellville is the small town that my parents have called home for the past 10 years. My aunt and uncle live in Yellville, along with their children and some of their grandchildren. Life is so different back in that part of the country. My family back there grow everything that they put in their mouth. I have never seen such hard working, generous and humble people in my life. My cousins Marla and Marilyn work harder than any man I know..... except for my husband of course. ;-) I just had to share a few pictures of this side of the family that I already miss.

First up.... Marla. Here is a picture of the drive going up to her home. Pretty isn't it? Her and her husband Phil own a lumber mill and raise cattle on the side. I LOVE their cows. They're Scottish Highlanders... the only beef that Queen Elizabeth will eat. You don't see them in the states very much, but are they ever cute.

Here is Marla and Phil with one of their grandsons.

Here is one of the cows. You've got to love that hair.

There were a lot of babies this year. I think they were just as curious of me as I was of them. Tomorrow Marilyn!
