Alabama part one

We are all feeling much better now. The boys went back to school yesterday. It is hard to get back to real life when you have had a nice break. On the way to Alabama we got to see the changing of the leafs. It was beautiful. Those pictures are on John's camera. I will post them soon. While we were there we went to a beautiful park where John did a little rock climbing. There were no guard rails in the last picture you can see how far down it was. The second picture is Rebecca and dad. Can you believe how big she is! She is almost as tall as Chris. She is ten years old now and a lot of fun. More pictures to come soon!

We had a wonderful time on vacation. We have had head colds since we have been home. I was so glad we didn't get sick at my parents. I had to pick up the boys from school today and I haven't felt to good. I will be posting pictures from our trip soon. For now I think I will rest some more. I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving!

We are on our way tomorrow morning to see my parents in Alabama. We will be there for Thanksgiving. I am very excited. Please pray that we have a safe trip. I will take pictures and post them when I get back. I need to get to bed. We are leaving early in the morning.

Making wonderful memories

Last night we ate our dinner out on the screened in porch. It was gorgeous out. John started a fire in the fire pit and the boys roasted marshmallows. While they were roasting the marshmallows I came in the kitchen to do the dishes. We had the windows open and I was enjoying listening to the boys laugh. John came up to the window right by the sink with a big smile on his face. I asked him whats up and he said he was just enjoying the view. After seventeen years he can still make me melt. Isn't he the sweetest! I am thankful for evenings like last night that make such wonderful memories.

Things I am thankful for

Lately I have been down in the dumps. So I have decided to focus on my blessings. Here are some random things:

The boys had a Thursday and Friday off a couple of weeks ago. We had a blast eating pizza and watching movies.

John has been working very hard on our bedroom. It is coming along and looking lovely. I will post pictures when it is done.

I was overwhelmed by my Bible study homework. John spent some time to work on it with me. He is so sweet!

I got some great bargains at the grocery store today.

We will be going on vacation soon to see my parents in Alabama (we will be there for Thanksgiving)

I received Atalie's birth announcement in the mail today. She is beautiful!

John bought me new dishes for my china cabinet. He also got me a new pressure cooker.

We got a riding lawn mower at a yard sale for $125.00. I had a lot of fun watching John ride it. Then he taught the boys how to drive it.

I will post more thankful thoughts soon.
