    When I was young, I dreamed of being a wife and mother. I am blessed to live that dream every single day along with my husband Steve, our four children, one son-in-law and two precious pups.

Hey there!
Hi! I'm Billie Jo, a wife to one and mother to four who loves all things home and family. During the day I homeschool, do laundry, and drink way excessive amounts of coffee. I would much rather read than exercise, and I am blessed to live the life I dreamed of.

Friday!

Welcome to the weekend, my friends. This promises to be our first cold and possibly snowy weekend! Just in time for the cozy, dark, early evenings. It is time to fluff those cushions, pull out the soft throws, pop the popcorn, and get out the games. Cozy nights at home are back. : )

Someone helped us clean up the yard this week.


And someone was busy inside with her birthday/Christmas wish list!
I love the innocence and excitement of childhood, don't you?

But grown children are pretty awesome too.
My girls were happy to cast their votes this week.
Peyton was thrilled she was old enough to vote for the very first time.

And me?
I am happiest when I am home with all my children, big and little, safe and sound with my afternoon coffee and pumpkin muffin. 

Have a cozy, happy weekend!!!
Thank you for visiting!

  3. Raining here. Snow sounds lovely, but here it would mean the entire town would shut down. Love Flynn's list, so precious.

  7. Enjoyed reading your post. We had snow yesterday! Started at noon yesterday and was still going this morning a bit. Ended up with about an inch but gone by noon today (except on a few bushes and treetops). The cold comes tonight and tomorrow, pizza delivery man is on his way here. Hope you have a happy, cozy weekend!

  13. It's snowing here in western NY, Billie Jo. I am thrilled that Peyton got to vote, smiles. Have a beautiful day friend.

  14. It's pretty cold here in the South! It was in the 30s the past few days. It would be nice if we would see some snow again, but it isn't likely to happen.

  15. Your trees are sooo tall and pretty! We live in a new development so we don't have any mature trees. Boo hooo!

    I agree! The big kid stage is pretty amazing too!

    Hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!
