*****I am having a hard time finishing this post due to the blustering wind waking my kids up*****
And here we are at January. Once the holidays were over, er, the month of December period, we all took a deep breath and embraced routine again. I am still embracing it. I give it a big, sloppy wet kiss everyday. You don't realize how much you love your ordinary, mundane life until you've lived out of it for over a month. The first weekend in January we headed out to our land. He's been wanting to go out there every weekend, and sometimes mentions it in the week. He likes to burn the massive piles & simply hang out. I guess for a man it's relaxing and he has a dream to build there in the near future and being there makes him feel closer to that reality. I try to understand this even though without the convenience of a bathroom and a nursing infant, I could really throw a fit about staying indoors. :) Anyways, here's some pics of our last trip there. There's something spiritual about being out in the bare land with only nature. It makes you see how materialistic you are otherwise.
Since the last set of pics we have brush hogged and done some clearing. The kids can actually run around now.
We played chase, sat and watched the fire and helped throw sticks in. Maybe Justin was right. It was nice being away from town and all the electronics in our home. Plumbing though--always a plus.

Isn't He beautiful? Captivating. Sometimes I think I could be a mountain mama. But then I come home to my conveniences and think "naaaaa."
I actually had some personal things to share I felt like the Lord was walking me through but once I signed into my blog and saw Christmas decor still up, I lost my train of thought and saw I had some catching up to do. Thanks for listening to me chit chat. Maybe on another lucky day, all three of my kids will sleep at the same time and I can share more of my heart. My husband is now home, the big tuna (inside joke, please don't ask), and I'd like to appear as if I've been folding. Till the next quiet moment~
