Boys and Girls, Are These Pinecones?

For those of you who have been reading my blog for a while, do you remember the pinecones we found when we were in southern California? (If you are a new reader, this post is linked to the post I am making reference to.) Well now, get a load of these cute little Connecticut pinecones!
It makes me laugh! I guess if you compare the size of the two states, you couldn't expect anything different! I just love it.

I know, I'm too easily amused. But still, I can't get over my God's creativity. I think about how board I get when I make Christmas cookies. I cut a few trees, then a few candy canes, then a few bells--because just one shape gets dull, FAST! I'm guessing when God was creating pine trees (and cones) He entertained himself with variety. A few average ones, a few gigantic ones, a few tiny ones... I hope He enjoyed creating them as much as I enjoy gathering and comparing them.
Find joy in the journey! (And in the forest!)

I just love those tiny pinecones.
Thanks for sharing your pictures. I just love all the different things you leave on your blog. I love seeing all things you get to do. I am so grateful that you share so many of our photos and ideas. Just found out today that Melissa and Ryan and Braedyn will be living in North Carolina. I will miss them terrible much. Just wanted to touch base.

Brittney,
North Carolina is beautiful. We loved it. I know it is far away and I know what it is like to be so far from that sweet grandson. I honestly feel your pain. One thing that I know but have to remind myself often is that God is big enough to take care of our children and grandchildren...they will be okay. And so will you, in time. But for now, go ahead and cry! I do every time we leave our kids behind.

Mamaw and Papaw are here right now...Mamaw is looking over my shoulder as we speak! :-) She's been trying to get Papaw in here to read your blog--but you've been replaced by the Reader's Digest in a room with no lights on! So now you know how YOU fall in the scheme of things! *I knew it all along*

I love you~

I'm glad to know Mom is reading my blog. Every child, no matter how old they are loves to have the attention, admiration and praise of their parents. (I hope she finds my blog praiseworthy.)

I think of how Natalie climbs to the top of her slide and waits until every person there is watching before she slides to the bottom.

Maybe Dad will get some enjoyment out of reading the Readers Digest. I hope so. After all, how could my ramblings compare?
