One more year and Mom will have all “adult” children!…First things first, Benjamin turned 17 this last month! Happy Birthday Benjamin! You bring laughter and thoughtfulness wherever you are! We are so grateful you are in our family!

For his birthday dessert mom made him a Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake…Boy howdy, that was some GOOD stuff!

Benjamin has a weakness (maybe it’s a strength) for fried chicken…and Maggie definitely makes the best around!

Does this not make your mouth water just looking at it?! It was scrumptious!

Carinna and Dad smoked some homemade summer sausage again this year!
It sure is yummy!

Look who got to go to an OKC Thunder game!

Eric is growing so fast, and his personality is showing more and more. Carinna has been helping Dustin and Hannah flip a house they bought. She comes home tired and just a little dirty. But you can’t beat good ‘ole hard work! : )

We sure love that Granny lives so close!
Granny will beat you in most games…but at least you get an ice cream bar. ; )

Abbie and Maggie do a whole lot of this when they’re home!

It’s hard to get quality time with people when everyone is going different places and doing different things…so, sometimes to spend time with them you just have to go along. : D Like, Abbie went with Hannah and Evan to Hannah’s midwifery appointment for a check up on the baby boy who is due in one month!…

…Carinna went thrift store shopping with Mom!…20170130_172222

…and Maggie went with Carinna to do some animal chores for some friends. Sometimes in a big family the best place to catch up with someone and talk about  life is in a vehicle!
It happens ALL the time around here…
"I thought so and so were back?  They are, but they’re still out in the car talking.” : D

Abbie and Benjamin started a tradition several years back…if it snows enough they build a funny snowman. You can find their other one’s here and here. : D : D
Even though Abbie had tons of homework, she still made time to go have some fun with Benjamin. : )

I think spring is a little early this year y’all!

There’s almost always a warm front that comes in in January, and I didn’t hear anyone complaining about the 70-80° weather!
One week we had 0° with snow, several days later it was 80° with short sleeves! : D

More time in the car…on the way to a wedding up by the panhandle of Oklahoma.

The sunset was gorgeous on the way back!!!

“Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.” Isaiah 26:3 

Sometimes in the busyness of life it takes a whole lot of intentional actions to keep your mind stayed on Him and trust God! But if you will, you will have perfect peace in the middle of all the chaos.
And that pretty much sums up the Burnett’s first month of the year!
