Forward - From the Heartland of Carolina

This is a continuing story of the journey Forward shared by 2 people, Lynne and Tom. Both love to LIVE life to it's fullest, which currently means spending lots of time outdoors, working on various projects from gardens to patios, flowers to vegetables, sunrises and sunsets, birds and woodland critters, and spending time with family. Don't forget to check the monthly archives, and please feel free to leave us a comment so we know you stopped by.

Finishing Up Christmas~

The Christmas season, 2007, was especially special this year, for Mom and the rest of us. We were introduced to the newest member of the family, Amaris!

Tracy, along with Amy and her daughter Amaris, spent a few days between Christmas and New Years with us, giving Mom lots of doting time with her newest great-great granddaughter.

Of course, Lynne got in on some of the loving, too :-)

And another indirect 4 generation picture :)

Mom was feeling well enough that we drove up to Ruth and Russ' house and celebrated Christmas and the holidays all over again.

Back at the house, the weather was nice enough that the grandsons could get outside to play a little 'baseball'

Back inside, no one was looking when Simba hijacked Amaris' baby seat :-)


More random shots from their visit...

And, in case y'all wonder, sometimes, we actually do see a little winter weather in mid-January.

That's all for now from our Heartland Gardens for now. The drought has carried on into February, but it looks like we may get some relief in the next week. Just in time for us to start playing in the gardens again!

Thanks again for stopping by. We really do like the little messages you leave us, and we're looking forward to springtime, and more pictures to share with you.

Please keep our Mom in your thoughts and prayers. She's had a rough few days lately, and is trying to fight off a case of Shingles and some other problems at the moment.

Thanks for visiting, and we wish all of you love and peace, from our little corner of NC, here at Heartland Gardens.
