So it has been a while since my last post so I will catch you up....

Last Sunday (sept 21) was our fifth wedding anniversary. Kalin and I went away for the weekend to one of our favorite spots, Bull Shoals Lake. It has a lot of good memories for us. We travel there every year to celebrate our marriage, and we have so many good memories there. We started this tradition for our honeymoon on a houseboat. This was pure bliss. Since then we have found this quaint little place, the Pine Lodge,

which we find comforting and accommodating. Bella Cuchina, a great little Italian restaurant is just a few miles away in Mountain Home, and has also become part of this tradition.

Kalin surprised me with a beautiful opal ring. He did it all on my own. I was impressed.

We just relaxed, ate good food, watched movies and did a little fishing down at Norfolk. It was a wonderful weekend

Lets see what else....

There's none so snug, as hole thats been dug, or a home in the side of a hill. So tuck in so neat, your furry little feet, and shh its time to be still.

September 22 is Bilbo and Frodo's birthday (from the Lord of the Rings) and in my husbands family it is a yearly holiday. Violet's cousins came over...we went barefoot all day, and did hobittish things. This includes eating at least six meals (as all good hobbits do)...breakfast, elevensies, lunch, tea, dinner, and supper. We made seed cakes, I read them passages from the hobbit. The kids drew pictures of hobbit holes, which came out really cute. Funny how each child remembered something different from the passages. The the kids played hobbit like games by throwing stones and acorns at targets. Sheryl gifted them with mathoms. (gifts given at events...hobbits use any excuse to give a gift)

A fine life is a happy wife and six good meals a day. The brew is old the pipe weed bold, what more is there to say
