Pumpkin Cheeseball

The pumpkin cheeseball I made for the Wade Thanksgiving. While we were in Kansas visiting Jeff's family we got together on Friday after Thanksgiving with his Mom's side of the family. I forgot to take in the camera so the only picture I have from our get together is this one that I took before we left the house to head to the gathering.

I came in the office and found Briana lying on the desk playing a game on my pocket pc that was in its charging station.

Flower Arrangements!

Since my Mom and Dad were here this past weekend, my sister Holly and four of her five kids came over and spent the night Friday and the day on Saturday. While she was here she did these two flower arrangments in the downstairs bathroom. So now my bathroom is totally finished. Thank You, Holly for doing these for me. Doing flower arrangements is something totally out of my league. It is nice to have many sisters with various talents.

The complete picture on that wall.

More Home Improvements

This past weekend my Dad, on his way home from Colorado, finished a project for us that he had started a few weeks back when he was on his way to Colorado. He framed in three large doorways for us. It makes a huge difference in the looks of these rooms. Thank You, Dad for doing this for us. We really appreciate it.

This picture was taken in the dining room looking out through the entry way to the office.

A Goodnigt Kiss!

The sun had long since gone to sleep so I told Briana it was time for bed and to go kiss her Dad goodnight before going to bed. She said she didn't want to kiss him but did it anyway. After she was done giving him a kiss she said, "Do you know why I didn't want to kiss Dad, it's because of those things on his face that look like pepper."
