It's time again For ABC Wednesday. If you aren't participating in ABC Wednesday, you are missing out on a lot of fun. This week the letter is "L". L is for Lillie and Laura. They are my beautiful nieces who are visiting this week from Illinois. I don't get to see them very often, but they are very special to me. Since I don't get to see them often, they grow up so much between visits.
LILLIE IN 2007
LAURA IN 2007
Laura had her 11th birthday just before her trip to Arkansas, so we celebrated her birthday here at Grandma's house Sunday night.
LAURA AT HER BIRTHDAY PARTY
Sunday afternoon Gina and I were able to spend some time with the girls. They took Skye on a walk down by the creek that runs behind our house. It was a beautiful day even though it was a bit chilly. The girls had a great time, but I think that Skye had the most fun. Lillie picked some wildflowers to bring to Gina.
LILLIE WITH HER WILDFLOWERS
After the walk, the girls watched the movie Tinkerbell. The had a good time. Getting to spend some time with Lillie and Laura makes me wish there weren't so many miles between us.
LAURA'S LONG HAIR
LILLIE'S BIG SMILE
I hope it won't be so long between visits next time. ----------------------------------------------------------

I was born in 1956 in Madison, Tennessee, while my parents were attending Madison College. I grew up along the Front Range in Colorado, attending schools in Longmont, Brighton, Boulder and Loveland, Colorado. Two years after graduating from Campion Academy, I married my sweetheart, Regina. We lived in Loveland, Colorado for six years before moving to Mena in western Arkansas.
I love the people of Mena and the friendly easy going way of life here. I have owned and operated my own business since moving to Mena. I enjoy the natural beauty of western Arkansas and being out of doors.
My newspaper column in The Mena Star, An Arkie’s Faith, premiered on January 7, 2016. In March 2017, I published my first book, titled The Little Things - Devotionals from a small town, using articles from the column. I published the second book in the Devotionals from a small town series, titled In the Fog, in December 2017.
