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!

What wonderful costumes, Mary! You girls did a good job. And your creativity was exercised, too! I really love the way you both have taken a can-do attitude when faced with a sewing dilemma. That is a skill that will serve you well as mamas in the future!

Looking forward to getting back together in Boston!

Beautifuljob ladies!

I'm sure those little Scottish lads were the cutest ones in the parade :) I loved the "Jig" picture!

I can just hear Margaret saying to "Floof" her gown! Perfect!

Can't wait till you get back!
