Went up to the Stewart Farm yesterday. I got to feed the calves, do some landscape work and see Abby and Mattie. Grandmother helped Abby get ready for the Blount County Young Farmers Christmas Party that was at Abby and Jay's house last night. We had fun visiting but we were tired when we got back home. KK and Pawpaw Billly went with us.

Pawpaw is telling his story. He called me at work to go to his house and get his 4Wheeler and come to where he was hunting. That was all he said but he didn't have to say more. Lisa went with me and as we left from getting the 4Wheeler we saw my Granddaddy "BigDaddy" sitting out in the sun at his house so I stopped and asked him to go with us. When we got there I went and helped him get the deer and we loaded it up and he road out. It was a nice one that the rack nearly touched at the top. It had been working the trees. (More pictures under Hunting Tab)
Made pictures here today of my granddad and last Saturday made pictures of my grandson in this same spot. Now is that not a BLESSING!

We went into Dewberry Lands to find a Christmas Tree. James and Selah had a great time looking for "The Great Christmas Tree" for Grandmother and Granddaddy. James assisted with the cutting of the tree. There are more pictures under the FAMILY TAB.

On Saturday, the 30th of October, I decided to forget about housecleaning and enjoy some time in the forest with Lamar. I always enjoy our time spent in the woods, and Saturday was no exception. Everytime I get to be on our property it makes me so appreciative of God's blessings. Lamar has always told me that going hunting or being in the woods has always made him feel close to God. I understand that feeling because that is how I feel, too, when I let myself forget about my "to-do" list and just be quiet and meditate on the greatness of our amazing God! Psalm 136: 1-9 describes our God and I am so thankful He loves everyone with such an incredible and enduring love!
Abby and Mattie at Grandmother's Park.
We love looking at the different colored leaves in the water. (Mattie would like to play in the water.)
She was so excited about her first trip to the Bowden Grove Tract.
She will have other time to play in the woods and when she gets a little older she can hike, hunt, play in the water, camp with Selah and James, and learn about plants and animals. GOD IS SO GOOD!

This week started early and has been busy. Monday started at 4:00am getting tax info together about taxes and was at tax office when it opened, but before going I was able to sit and watch the sun rise over Randolph County with the steam coming up off of Lake Wedowee. I needed that!!! Left the tax office and drove to Valdosta, GA for the Southeastern Farmer of the Year Banquet. Spent the night and started early Tuesday morning for Moultrie, GA for the Ag Expo and the Southeastern Farmer of the Year Luncheon and Awards Program. We saw many toys that I would like to have,... maybe someday. From here we traveled to Montgomery, AL and spent the night. The next day I met at the ALFA Office with other Farm leaders to set the policy for the Alabama Farmers Federation for the next year. Thank goodness Wednesday night we were at home! Abby and Mattie came Thursday and stayed til Friday afternoon. Mattie got her first tour of the Bowden Grove property, she loved it! We rode in the jeep with the top off and she was so happy. I don't think I have ever noticed a little one loving the forest as much as she does. She fell asleep before we left. GOD is good!

The house(s) where they live needs to be featured in Southern Living Magazine. They have three houses that all blend together in the trees on a small lake with features like the pool, firepit area, automatic fish feeder and a raised garden area. They have been married over 59 years! They have three sons, one played for the Dallas Cowboys. The sons live in Dallas now where one is a builder, one a landscape architect, and one an artist.
The visitors yesterday were all connected to the Alabama Farmers Federation.
