It's been an odd couple of weeks, actually a couple of months. Going back and forth to my parents every weekend since my mom's surgery has thrown me a little off kilter, but I'm truly thankful that I have been able to go and help.

We went this last Saturday, the whole gang of us, well minus Josh. He's still away, but will be home soon. Anyway, it was my daddy's birthday... his 66th... so we went to wish him a Happy Birthday and to help my mother put out Christmas decorations.

I wanted to get some pictures of the kids while we were there. Nothing like taking pictures in a cow pasture! There was on old, and I mean old truck out there... just perfect for what I had in mind.

It was a nice afternoon. My mother worked us hard... but we accomplished quite a bit. Thank you Emma for jumping in and helping like you did. I truly love you being with us.

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving... and I have so much to be thankful for. Instead of sharing pictures of layouts I've made in the last couple of weeks... thought I'd share these instead, of our day out at Momma & Daddy's.

Jessica & Josh.... we'll miss you two tomorrow!

Pasture pictures!

Out behind the barn... Matt & Jess

Found an old truck.....
The 4 of us. You know this will get framed and be on my desk very soon!

Jessica slipped and almost took Matt and I down....she got tickled which got us tickled... What a great picture! Thanks to Emma for taking it for me!

The absolute best thing I've ever done in my life!

Who'd ever know from looking at this picture that these two would sit in the back seat saying... he's touching me... she's looking at me!

Matt & Emma

It took 5 of us to do the work that my momma always does by herself!

Jessica trying to whack Meme on the head!

Do you see the look Matt is giving Emma as she keeps piling more boxes on?

Matt putting on mom's back brace and hobbling into the kitchen all hunched over.

My daddy trying not to crack a smile at Matt.

Just the two of them.... sitting.... quietly.... together. This picture makes my heart smile!

Wishing you all a love filled day.

I love the pictures and the background. Not to mention Matt and his hair cut. And faces to go with names. What a fun family time for all. What a great daughter, mother and wife you are to your family.
