Fun on the Farm (And videos of Sania Louise)

Last weekend, my family went to the Devine’s Corn Maze.  It is a tradition every year for my Dad and Janet (Papa and Memaw) to take all the kids and grandkids to the maze.  My boys look forward to it every year!

(front row) Sania Louise, my nephew, Ryan/Eli.  (Missing from picture is my husband and son, Jonathan.)


Sania Louise had a great time climbing on the mound of tires, jumping on the big bouncy thing, petting the animals, and walking through the corn mazes. 



She spent half of the time riding on her cousin Drew’s back. 



Drew and my Luke are only two weeks apart in age and the best of friends.  


I love having my girl there with us, and she loves all of the attention.  My whole family spoils her rotten. 


After we took the family picture at the top of this post, Sania Louise came up to me and pulled on my shirt and asked, “dat’s my family?”

She loves to hear me say it over and over again.  “Yes, sweetie, that’s your family…Forever!”

After we leave the corn maze, we always go back to Dad and Janet’s house to roast hot dogs, or eat a bowl of chili, and of course, make s’mores!

It’s the best time ever!

That evening, Jonathan sang at a local fall festival.  It was the perfect fall day!


I’ve had many of you ask if I could share some video of Sania Louise so you could hear her talk and see her little personality, so I put together a bunch of short clips from my phone for you to see.  The end clip is the best one and cracks me up every time I see it.  I hope you enjoy it! :)



  1. I have been curious about how she puts together the idea of all the extended family and in particular grandparents..thank you for sharing.

  4. Thank you Traci for sharing a few video clips with us. I agree that Sania Louise favors you.

May God continue to guide y’all and give you the necessary patience as you help Sania Louise adjust. A very beautiful family!

  5. So sweet! What precious memories are being made! Our kiddos are 21 & almost 19 so the trips to the pumpkin patch still happen, but aren’t quite the same anymore…it’s more about the creepy corn maze, etc . but I’ll take it any way I can get I guess! What a beautiful family!! Thank you for sharing!

  6. How blessed you are Traci. All the anxiety and tears and waiting paid off big time with your precious little girl. Thanks so much for sharing the videos. So precious to see her interaction with your boys.

  7. Traci..I so enjoy your family posts and updates on Sania Louise. She is one very lucky girl! God blessed you all with one another and with each passing day, Sania Louise will come to understand this more and more, as I’m sure you, Cy and the boys already do. Blessings to you all!
