Spring Has Sprung

17 Apr

Spring has sprung, the grass is ris’, I wonder where the flowers is?

Spring Has Sprung | The Farm PaparazziI can still see my Grandpa Jim dancing and wagging his fingers as he recited his ditty each spring. Spring definitely has sprung. You might think it still feels like winter. There WAS snow on the ground just two days ago. But, I’ve got news, folks. That IS spring in Wyoming.

March 1, 2014. No, seriously.

It’s hard to complain too much. All this snow and rain is quenching our parched land and helping our snow pack (from which we get our irrigation water). We farmers are looking forward to plentiful water this year.

The Laramie River was a little low last summer.

Even though I’m definitely enjoying the warmer weather, I can’t believe it’s April 17 already. I’ve been a bad blogger and have much to update on. Here’s the rundown:

In January, our nephew Hunter was born. He’s awesome.

Safford, Ariz. That’s alfalfa. In February.

My in-laws and I also threw a baby shower for my sister-in-law Sunni and baby Hunter. Kristny and Mama Kim came up with this adorable Noah’s ark theme.

In March, Tyler turned 30 and we celebrated with a house full. I was so busy hostessing that I didn’t get any good pictures. But, it was a blessed time filled with great friends and loving family.

Yes, I made Tyler blow out 30 candles.

I also did some quilting this winter/spring. After three years, the wedding quilt/farmer’s wife quilt is DONE! I’ll definitely tell you more about that soon.

Spring Has Sprung | The Farm PaparazziOh yeah. And we’ve also been fitting in some farming.

Spring Has Sprung | The Farm PaparazziWhew! It’s been an awesome few months! Spring has definitely sprung, and the most exciting and important thing about it is celebrating our Risen Savior.

Jesus came to Earth as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. I love this Casting Crowns song, which tells the story of Jesus and his amazing sacrifice. To learn more about developing a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, visit http://rickwarren.org/know-god.

Have a wonderful Easter focusing on what Jesus did for you and me!

God Bless You & American Agriculture,


But the other criminal protested, “Don’t you fear God even when you have been sentenced to die? We deserve to die for our crimes, but this man hasn’t done anything wrong.” Then he said, “Jesus, remember me when you come into your Kingdom.” And Jesus replied, “I assure you, today you will be with me in paradise.” – Luke 23:40-43
