Where The Orange Blossoms Grow....

Hello! Welcome to the Stricklen's blog. We hope to keep our family and friends up to date with what is going on with our family. You will find a variety of experiences posted here -- you may find pictures of the never ending project of building our house, Callie helping William with his first steps, Mary studying a rare insect species, or perhaps you may be terribly bored with Molly's numerous fruit trees, berries, vegetables and rare plant pictures! Who knows what we may find Chris and CJ doing -- probably something having to do with a tractor or machine of sorts. Abby and Margaret will keep us entertained with costumes from other lands or a fairy story. Whatever we post, we trust it will lift your spirits and bring honor and glory to our Lord!

I want to introduce you to our adopted friend "Pickles the Snake" (Recognize this, Uncle Hans?)
Obviously I'm being very foolish.
Meet Mr. Pickles

Playtime Mr. Pickles

Naughty, Naughty, Mr. Pickles!

Lunchtime, Mr. Pickles!

Bathtime, Mr. Pickles!


What a Day, Mr. Pickles! Good Night!

Sleep Tight, Mr Pickles!

Kelly said...

Mary, You are too funny! I enjoyed meeting Mr. Pickles!

Mrs. Stevens

Uncle Hans said...

No cucumber has ever been more honored, not even in Vegie Tales :) "They" say 'laughter is the best medicine'. The logical conclusion is that you are now Dr. Mary, because you have certainly prescribed a lot of laughter!

The Miller Family said...

Oh, Mary! You have definitely got our family's (wierd) sense of humor! Much enjoyed by the Miller family!

Tina said...
