Happy Birthday, Muffy!!

Our little baby Muffin is now 3 years old! Where has the time gone!? It seems like just yesterday when we picked her up from a farm in TN, and yet it doesn't... She's become a part of our lives... a blessing in the form of a little 6 pound ball of fluff. Little Poochca has brought so much joy into our family, and to many others.

Merry Christmas!!

We were so thankful for a quiet day at home this year where we could enjoy each other and prepare for our up-coming trips. We pray you had a Merry Christmas as well, surrounded by the love and joy of family and friends. God bless, and may you draw ever closer to Him throughout this new year!

Store Dedication

We are so thankful for the love and support shown to us by our church family as they all joined with us in dedicating our store, Southwestern Supply, to the Lord. We pray that this business is a lighthouse to our community... a place where the people can come not only to get a needed tool for a plumbing job, but where they can be encouraged and shown the love of Christ.

Music Seminar

Our family was blessed to help Christian Berdahl with a music seminar in Albuquerque. It was so nice to meet and work with other Christians who love the Lord.

Snippets from the Spring & Summer

This spring and summer flew by. It was filled with traveling to fulfill ministry engagements and attend weddings as well as visit friends and family, working in the green houses, cleaning and remodeling our hardware store, visits from friends, keeping up with our side businesses and normal day to day activities. Here are a few pictures...

Abundant harvest

This year our greenhouses produced bushels of tomatoes, peppers, and squash and literally hundreds of cantaloupe and watermelon. Lettuce, broccoli, spinach, potatoes, radishes, carrots, cabbage, onions, and cucumbers also filled our hoop houses. We enjoyed meeting new customers and serving regulars week after week at our produce stand on Tuesdays and Fridays.
