When asked who does he look like, Prince William replies, "He's got her looks luckily!" To which Kate just giggled and said "No!" 

Proud Daddy, William says they are still deciding on a name... 
but one thing is for sure, he has a big pair of lungs!

Prince William said, "Thank goodness he has more hair than me!"

Kate looks like a Natural! 
Kate said it's a very emotional time, a very special time... special feeling that every parent has felt! 

Kate looks radiant and William looks so happy! Interesting that Kate should just happen to wear blue polka dots... 31 years ago, Princess Diana stepped out in the same spot wearing turquoise polka dots.

Prince William plans on being a Hands-On Father... looks like he's doing good so far! Putting little prince in the car and even driving his family home! Kate gave the report that he's already done his first nappy! 

Congratulations William and Kate! 

Royal Baby: A Prince has been Born!

What an exciting Monday!! We awoke to the wonderful news that Duchess Kate was in labor! Then around noon, we received a phone call from Sue Danielson from WHO Radio 1040 am for an impromptu interview about the Royal Bundle and why we thought everyone was so excited for it!! We believe it's because it is history happening right now! This is the future heir to the throne! We also believe it's because Diana was the People's Princess and now her sons are the People's Princes! They have so much of their mother in them! 

Then a few hours later, the official news... A Prince had been born!! 8 lb. 6 oz! So exciting, it's just like a fairytale!! Last I heard, both mother and son were doing well! So delighted for them! Can't wait to hear what they are going to name him! 

We made Ice Tea Lattes to celebrate and ate little animals crackers in honor of the baby's birth! 

Bed and Breakfast Guests: Secrets to a Happy Marriage

This past week we had the cutest farm couple come and stay at the B&B to celebrate their anniversary – Henry and Ruth.  Guess how many happy years this married couple has been together?!

55!!  Isn’t that wonderful?!   They have four children, 19 grand children and expecting their 11th great grandchild any day now!!  What a legacy!!

Henry surprised Ruth this week by calling and making all of the arrangements…how special is that?!  Apparently, Ruth had mentioned she’d like to stay at a B&B, so Henry did his homework!!  He felt very comfortable here in our farm setting (smiles).

At breakfast we asked them secrets to a happy, long marriage – here’s what they shared:

First, the Lord has always been the central focus of their marriage; has helped to keep them balanced.

Secondly, doing little things for one another, whether it’s a surprised bouquet of wildflowers after haying all day; to riding in the tractor with hubby to help pass time; and moonlight walks just to name a few!

Third, add some humor…Henry knows Ruth is scared to death of mice; one time she was riding in the tractor with him and he had run over a mouse.  They had stopped and she went to get something, so Henry set the dead mouse on the step leading into the tractor!!  Henry almost lost his riding partner that day! Ha.

May they have many more happy years together!!!  We hope this has blessed you like it did us!!

Royal Baby Facts

Royal Baby commemorative item for sale
The Royal Baby has everyone around the world excited! We all can't wait to hear if it's a boy or girl! It is one of the most anticipated births of the decade! 

The word is, that Prince William is absolutely thrilled about becoming a dad! He is determined to be a 'hands-on father' (Doesn't he sound like his mother!) According to one of his friends, he's been watching a lot of "Nappy-Changing" videos on YouTube. Prince Harry thinks it's hysterical and can't stop making fun of him (in a good way!) Prince William also likes to sing to Kate's baby bump! 

Fun Royal Baby Facts: 

The first to know about the royal baby will be Queen Elizabeth II, Prime Minister David Cameron and the governors general of each of the Commonwealth nations, along with the rest of the royal and Middleton families. 

If the baby arrives in the middle of the night, it's unlikely the queen will be awoken, so there is a chance in that instance that an official announcement will not be made until the following morning. 

 The baby will have the title His or Her Royal Highness Prince or Princess (the baby's name) of Cambridge, St. James's Palace said this month. However, it could be as long as 10 days before the baby's name is announced. 

Celebratory gun salutes will be sounded by the King's Troop Royal Horse Artillery in Green Park (41 rounds) and the Honorable Artillery Company at the Tower of London (62 rounds) after the baby is born. 

Anyone born in Britain on the same day as William and Catherine's baby will receive a special coin from the Royal Mint: a silver penny, dated 2013, that will come in a blue pouch for a boy or a pink one for a girl.

Happy Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day!!

Happy Birthday to Princess Diana!

Today would have marked Princess Diana's 52nd birthday! She was a remarkable woman with a big heart and a lot of love for people! Her ability to love people has passed on to her two sons, William and Harry. 

England's Rose, The People's Princess, will be forever missed! Happy Birthday Princess!
