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!

Mary Noelle,what nice memories! And you have an adorable little brother, even though "odd"! That was a wonderful day! All that was missing was Millers!

(who thinks he looks like a "geezer" in his pictures! I told him, "Honey, you ARE a geezer! My sweet geezer!")

Hey Ya'll! Wills looks like Digby in summer Magic with those goggles on. By the way Mary, those goggles came with my gift from Grandmother and Granddaddy.
