"The best Christmas Ever!"

This is what you get when you say "Absolutely, positively NO!" when asked an xbox 360 for Christmas...
And then your dad surprises you anyway...

Merry Christmas!

My dad just emailed me this for Christmas... Isn't it the best gift.

Trains and Trees!

We rode on this steam train today! It is only running thru Sunday so if you are interested let me know and I'll give you directions. Free, pet food or people food donation.

She is sooo cute! All said she kept saying over and over crystal clear: "I help you!" I love it when she talks and can be so easily understood!

Here is Charlie Brown...

Gobble, Gobble

I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving. We enjoyed this year just the five of us. It was fun to cook our meal together and watch the Macy's parade and football. We had a wonderful meal and then got to go to the movie. The Blind Side, highly recommended.
We are grateful this year for all of our blessings. I am asking if you don't mind to continue to pray for direction for our family. My husband really needs a job. We know God has a plan for us but the wait has been long. It has been over a year and all the experience Joe has is in items that are not moving: houses, mortgages, cars, etc... Having only commission and being new in this small town is difficult! He is struggling, trying to find where he belongs. He wants to work and it is hard to see him at home day after day wanting to get out there. Thanks for praying, praying God will find him a job quick!
Happy Thanksgiving!

Jack was my helper this year... Decorations, potatoes, cranberry sauce. Very helpful.

Happy Happy Haircut!

Here is my little hippie-freak... yesterday. Mailing out his B-Day invites. Ode to the year of the camp-fire. If you fall in one and nearly burn your hand off we may as well celebrate the beginning of his 8th year with an indoor camp out, a little fire is not going to scare him...

Now look at this cute boy!! Ship- shape. I'm thankful for haircuts.

Two Things... Well actually Three

First it was a beautiful Saturday morning for football, no rain! There are two facts about this game that made it extra special. Two circumstances that brought out a beast on the field, an animal ready to play. One, how cute is Ethan's 4th grade teacher, she came to his game. Ethan asked me two times... "Mom, is she here yet?" It was so cute.
Thank you Mrs. Allen for taking the time to make your students feel special!

Secondly these two... I don't know if I should share this info or not. It worked so I am sharing. E was paid! 5 bucks for every solo tackle, 1 buck for an assisted tackle. A dollar lost for missing a tackle from the offensive line. A bit whacked but it worked. Ethan was on fire and dad is out 15 smacks!
Here is our friend Hayden... And the ball was gone, gone, gone. 26 to 14.
So fun to watch!

A stunning way to pick up some pumpkins...

Cascadian Farms... is great but it is the way there that is really breathtaking! It is out HWY 20, 3 miles past Rockport. It is may favorite "no-frills" patch. A perfect Sunday afternoon.

This sweet church was even having there 3:00 every other Sunday service. Right out of a Movie!
