Answered Prayers!!

If you know someone who doesn't believe in God, ask them to talk to a Farmer. A Farmer not only has to work hard all year long but they have to possess a very strong Faith. When planting season rolls around (if there's moisture) they have Faith that the seed they plant will sprout through the soil.

It may be too that he is our last Baby :(

This is Lockwood or should I say - Douglas Lockwood Jarrell, Jr. As Doug taught him to say as soon as he could talk. . .he was named appropriately! He not only looks like Doug, but ACTS just like him. He is a Farmer to the core and wouldn't have it any other way!

This is our sweet daughter, Brittany. She is not only my daughter, but one of my best friends. Not only does she look like me . . . she has also inherited a heart bigger than mine - which I am so proud of. She loves sports, four-wheeling, swimming, friends ~ hates sc…

Long Days

For the majority of the year - this is where you'll find Doug, on some form of Farm Equipment. The boys and I were bringing Daddy a late afternoon snack. In this picture Doug was digging peanuts as the sun was setting behind him. Boy, do I love my hard working Farmer!!
