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!

May 4th -- Happy Birthday, Prince William!

William - 2 months

William - 6 months

One Year Old!!

I can't believe a year has passed since William was born. What a blessing that little bundle of joy is! So full of life and curious about everything! I believe he will be a mighty man of God. What we are instilling in our children's lives daily will indeed last a lifetime.I thank the Lord for this beautiful blessing --
William Pearce Stricklen.
We had a lovely celebration with many family and friends in attendance for the royal celebration!

Me and Little Wills

Some of the young men

We don't see this side of Grandma Harris too often!
This must have been a dull party!

Josh is great with babies!My good friend, Renee. She and her family spent the day with us

We always have time for music!

All done! Kind of gross :(

Yes, it was a special day for a very special little "prince"! The fellowship was wonderful, and the food delicious, of course. What a perfect, precious baby he is -- and we are so blessed to have him in our family.

Love, Grandmother
