Look who Charmaine and I saw in Ames. Can you believe it? ____(Fill in the blank)____ was in the country showing their country side to all of us. Ye Haw! Just another reason I love Ames. All kinds of family show up there.
Last week Samuel and I were in Ames Iowa visiting Charmaine, Randal, Israel and Elijah. We had so much fun. I wrote on my blog about how I loved Ames and my sister Peggy wrote back and asked me why.
(This is the street that Charmaine lives on.)
Well, the obvious, it is were Charmaine lives right now but then also it is just beautiful. We walked everyday and I love looking at the beautiful change that is taking place in the season.

The last day we were there it was too cold for me to walk so I can't imagine what it will be like in the dead of winter but for the spring, summer and fall it is the place to be. Here are some pictures that illustrate my point.
(This is very typical architecture in Ames, my favorite.)(So many houses have a cute little summer porch too.)
So many things to love about Ames. Charmaine also blogged a few pictures and her's are even better. She is a much better photographer than I. Check it out.
When Samuel and I were first married I decide that I wanted to start a collection that reflected myself and interests. I thought long and hard and decided that Nativities would be it! I bought my first Nativity our first Christmas together with the intent of getting a new one each following year. Well somehow that once a year purchased has turn into several hundred. I just love them and when ever I see a Nativity I think of the many great gifts that I have been given and from where they come. I hope that through this blog, you will get the sure feeling that it is Heavenly Father that I am worshiping and His Son Jesus Christ. I do love them and am so grateful that Heavenly Father sent His son to us to show us the way back home. I hope you enjoy this "Fuller" collection of Nativities from around the world.
