I know it has been a LONG time since I have posted an update. I will try to get you all caught up on what has been happening around here this summer, but first I want to let you know what has been going on this week.

To say we were very busy this summer would be an understatement. I thought a couple of times through all the busyness "It sure would be nice to go to Tennessee." I knew it would be impossible for us to go but I wasn't thinking about the fact that God sometimes gives us the desires of our heart. To make a long story short, God allowed a business acquaintance of Nathan's to give us a FREE 7 night stay in his beautiful condo in the Smoky Mountains. This week we have had an awesome, absolutely wonderful vacation. The weather has been beautiful and we are certainly enjoying the blessings of the Lord. GOD IS SO GOOD!!!

My three favorite people having a great time.

We have spent several days "exploring" the Smoky Mountains. Here are some of the things we have found.

A beautiful church we visited on Sunday.

A cabin built in the 1800's.

An awesome view of the Smoky mountains.

I love to decorate my home for every season but my favorite seasons are fall & Christmas. Needless to say I have really enjoyed seeing all the beautiful fall decorations that you see everywhere down here this time of year. This beautiful display was at Dollywood.

More beautiful decorations.

I'll try to post more vacation pictures and summer updates soon.
