t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


Mothers Day

Not much can compare to being the mother of three precious little children. Only being a wife to my husband surpasses the joy I find in my children.

After hours of sewing on rosettes, the dresses finally came to fruition in time for Mothers Day. Here are a few shots....If only we had not run out of bark....it would have been a perfect backdrop!

Talk about a ray of sunshine...this little one sparkles in everything she does...and sometimes blazes :)
Thankfully our little neighbor Jeddy poked his head into our yard...the only way I got true smiles from the kids.

We spent Mothers Day up at the Full Circle Ranch with my own wonderful mother. We basked in Spring perfection with a lazy picnic under the willow tree.

Gates are such great photo ops and provide endless fun for the grandkids.

So ready for Summer...Our beautiful Ellery...

Oh and check out how the dresses compare to the ones I copied....not too bad I think. In fact, my kids make far cuter models and compensate for any shortcomings in the dresses :) Callista's retailed for $102 and Ellery's for $253. I made them for $23 a piece (and a lot of love). Not bad.
