2 Books For Your Dinosaur Lovers

Do you have a child in your life that has grown to love dinosaurs more than you ever imagined? Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I would come to a point where I would be able to name more than one…

Vision Board 2020

Vision Board 2020

2020! What an exciting prospect of new beginnings! What is your vision for the new year! Paul reminded us in Philippians 3:14: “I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.“ It is good to have goals…

A Year In 12 Photos

A Year In 12 Photos

by Natalie Love

January

Crazy how much they grow in a year!

February

Because I forget how tiny they were…and when they slept constantly! Ha!

March

Terrible lighting! Sunday matching! I turned 26 that month too.

April

April was a busy month! It was really difficult to just pick one picture! But this was a pretty good highlight. My husband really wanted them to have a playground. This was the month they got it! 🙂

May

Gorgeous spring days! Ready for these again!
Caleb and I celebrated 4 years of marriage. Hannah turned 3 and Leah turned 2. May is a busy month for us!

June

Summer days swimming and swinging!

July

This pretty much sums up July! haha We also had 2 calves born. Had a lot of July 4th fun! Visited Ohiopyle. Swam and swam and swam! 😉 Again, really hard to pick just one picture this month as well.

August

Didn’t have that many photos in August to choose from. Probably because the heat was so unbearable who wanted to do anything back in August?! Including take pictures….of hot sweaty people. haha

September

September we took our family vacation. It was a good month 😉 This is Erie, Pa.

October

October our baby Charity turned one!

November

Even though Thanksgiving is this month and you usually do all the fun fall things this time of year as well, I barely had any pictures. Not sure why. There was a day in November though, I had to delete…I kid you not…over 300 pictures of Hannah’s legs. So there’s that. lol

December

We had a wonderful Christmas and so enjoyed time with family and friends. Unfortunately, sickness hit the family pretty hard (currently still dealing with it) and we spent the majority of the month staying away from most people to avoid getting people sick. This was when I had all the girls ready to go to church and it was snowing too hard and fast to even leave. So I took a picture. Which I never ended up getting a good one of them all looking. haha A+ for effort though.

We were so blessed this year. Again, like always, the Lord was so good to us! We made it through another year healthy (Thank you, Lord!) and accomplished a lot. This year I hope to share even more good things and all the exciting times! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Wild Blackberry Harvest

Wild Blackberry Harvest

This was only the second, full year we’ve lived in this house and I got to take advantage of the wild blackberry bushes this year! We literally have wild blackberry bushes littered ALL over our property. I in no way could pick them all myself.…

Ah-Fall!

Ah-Fall!

Don’t you just love fall! We do at motherhenfive. Living in Pennsylvania we have the pleasure of having the effects of all four seasons. Pretty much equal amounts of each. We look forward to the beginning and ending of each season.

What do you think of when you think of fall?

  • campfires
  • pumpkin “everything”
  • corn mazes
  • parades
  • apple orchards
  • etc…

We are right there with you! I also think of cozying up with a big old throw to keep you warm. I made one of those popular throws and I want to show you how I made it. If you knit or crochet this will be an easy craft for you. If not, don’t worry it is super easy.

My throw on our bed!


This is the yarn I used. I got it last year at Michaels when it was half off! I used three of these.
Start with a loop
and make a chain, like in crochet. I made mine 32 chains. If you want it more square – 24.
Go back the other way and pull your yarn through. May sure your chain and loops are loose. You will need the room.
Pulling throw the loop
Keep all “stitches” laying flat and all the same way!

You end it just like you do crocheting – pulling it over the loop you just crocheted.
Love this Throw!

We hope you have a happy fall! What are you making new for FALL?

CAMPING – Prince Galliztin State Park

Our first adventure in the camping was this month. We went up to our favorite get-a-way, Prince Galliztin State Park. We love just the quietness of it. It is the off-season though. Take a look at our video of our day away. We make pizza…
