Our Family 2 Yours

Spread the love

Hi there we are so glad you came to visit. Let me tell you a little bit about us. We lived in Oregon for many years and raised our children plus took many Foster Children in our home over a 15 year period. We also raised 2200 Asian Pear Trees that kept us very busy.

When we moved to Oregon we happened to meet the president of Louisiana Pacific and he wanted us to look at a house that needed some love.  It was awful but he said he would pay to put it all back together.

The house has 22 rooms and 10-acres of ground. This house had so much charm as it was almost 100 years old and we accepted the challenge. We worked so hard for 4 months before we could move in.  There was still a lot to do but we keep going until after a year the inside was almost put back the way it should have been. 

 There was lots  of room outside for the kids to run and play and work. We  raised cows, a peacock, rabbits, lambs, pygmy goats, and a llama.  We also had dogs, a cat named Ben  and gerbils until they multiplied so much they had to leave.

We grew a HUGE garden and we canned everything we could. From peaches, pears, applesauce, pickles, grape juice, cherries, and more. I had a man come out and he cried when he saw our pantry because he said it was “just like his mama use to do.” He said they knew the family would make it through the winter with all that food.

It was a Fairy Tale life in some ways but very hard to keep it all up. My own children just want to go back like it was so many years ago and have one day there to remember all that happened.  It was a time in our lives we will never forget.

Our Children are all grown now but The Memories Will Always Be There and We are Making Many More! We hope some of the ideas we share will help you raising your families.

Have a Wonderful Day,




The Old Paths
I liked the old paths, when 

Moms were at home. Dads were at work.

Brothers went into the army.
And sisters got married BEFORE having children!
Crime did not pay;
Hard work did;
And people knew the difference.
Moms could cook;


Dads would work;
Children would behave.
Husbands were loving;
Wives were supportive;
And children were polite.
Women wore the jewelry;
And Men wore the pants.
Women looked like ladies;
Men looked like gentlemen;
And children looked decent.
People loved the truth,
And hated a lie.
They came to church to get IN,
Not to get OUT!
Hymns sounded Godly;
Sermons sounded helpful;
Rejoicing sounded normal;
And crying sounded sincere.
Cursing was wicked; Drugs were for illness.
The flag was honored;
America was beautiful;
And God was welcome!
We read the Bible in public;
Prayed in school;
And preached from house to house.
  To be called an American was worth dying for;
To be called an American was worth living for;
To be called a traitor was a shame!
I Still Like The Old Paths The Best
