Doodle’s Country Baby Belly…First Edition/Addition

I’m finally getting around to posting a few pictures of my Doodle family’s first born and their country baby belly pictures. The result of the “belly” is our Miss Mardee Bug…and she just turned 2 years old on January 16, 2015. But hey…better late than never, I say! I have to mention that these lovely […]

Short and Sweet Notes


I love, love, love to look over while working at my desk and see this simple, sweet note from one of my daughters.┬áSuch seemingly small things can sure make a mommy feel loved….in a very big way!

Life Happened

Life Happened

I don’t even want to say how long it’s been since I’ve posted here. I used to post pretty much every day…then…life happened. So much “life has happened” that 2 more of our kids are now married (4 out of 5 have tied the knot) and you can now officially call me…NANA!! In fact, call […]

I’m Fired, Whit’s Hired

I’m Fired, Whit’s Hired

I’ve said many times before how proud I am of our kids and the help they give Montana Man and I with this huge job of operating a cattle ranch…and a household full of children. Whitter Baby is, well…the baby of the brood, but she pitches in just like everyone else. It used to be […]

Real Country Living “Players”

It isn’t very often that I call the loved ones in my life by their given names. To avoid any confusion, I thought it’d be fun to add a list of the “Real Country Living Players” so you’ll always know who I’m talking about while here on the site. There’s more to find out About […]

I’ve been waiting to write this post until I could do it without crying…that time was never going to come, so here goes… Whit has a wonderful friend, Pretty Pamela…let me try that again. We ALL have a wonderful friend…Pretty Pamela. Pamela is also one of the few select young adults that I have “stolen” […]

My oldest baby (27 years), Adam, and me…enjoying time at the beach bar. We’ve been here in Mexico for 4 full days and have 2 more left to relish before heading back home to the ranch in Montana. Our oldest son got married a bit over 2 weeks ago…we’ve been planning this trip since the […]
