Thanksgiving '09

We had a wonderful time during Thanksgiving weekend. Casey and Bree arrived on Wed evening and it was so goooood for them to be home. We missed Ryan who had a birthday during these holidays. We called and heard about his holiday and all that has been going on with him but wish he had been home. On Thanksgiving Day, Kim's family and my folks came over for lunch. WE all cooked too much and consumed too much. Brian's nephew and wife came from Dallas to visit that evening after her family get together in Abilene. They married in '07 and he has been in Iraq for a year so we were all so thankful to have them with us.
After lunch, some had naps and some watched football. Cash persuaded the "guys" yo play Legos with him.
How blessed we are. No one in the history of the world has as much to be grateful for as we. Just think how few have been in the position we find ourselves today. Most of the people who have lived would never have conceived of the conveniences or freedoms we enjoy. God has been so good to us. And we should be preserving these blessings for our children and grandchildren. Lord, open our eyes to the dangers and to the responsibilities and grant that we receive wisdom and courage for action from You.
Here are a few pictures from the album at the Picasa site.

Pie Season

Hooray! It is definitely the season for pies. Tomorrow is the second Monday of the month which means it is my turn to cook and help with the Cornerstone & Company meal. So, I made a pumpkin and 2 1/2 chocolate pies. The half is the one in the bread pyrex which will be halfed between my folks and my spouse and myself, provided he gets home pretty soon. I enjoy cooking for Thanksgiving and am excited that we'll have nephews and families, along with two of my offspring, with us for Thanksgiving. One will be working, as well as celebrating his birthday during the Thanksgiving week and we will miss him. I think it's a good idea to practice cooking so, pies it is!

Puppies Are Growing...

As you can see, the labs and the terriers are growing. Thirteen of the sixteen labs have survived and all five terriers. You better call Kim to put your order in before they are all gone. haha

Pretty Roses

Brian has kept a blue vase on my cabinet filled with beautiful pink rose these last three weeks. They've been extra pretty lately.
When he brings them in, they're just a small bud but in a few days they've opened wide.
