Happy mothers day – Join the TOMFO more than money photo share!

They have become our sons as well… Anzac Day 2013

This is where our dog lives – we made him a doghouse + daybed!

Introducing our backyard! Our Murph lives here. This is zoysia grass, (you never have to mow it, was a pre-request from my husband and will always be clumpy like a hobbit’s hill) – we live on a hill, so that’s a plus to not have to mow that!   Here is our Murph when we
