Ice Cream!!!

We like ice cream in this family. And it has been awhile since we purchased any for our house. The girls were thrilled, and we enjoyed it as a family.

There's a story that goes with these pictures....but, I'll spare you. Bottom line -- Brian said I was grumpy, and I decided to prove to him I wasn't by dumping the pot with water in it (That I was currently washing) on him...he tried to get me wet too...but didn't succeed to much. ;) The girls greatly enjoyed playing in the puddle of water on the floor. 

We don't typically do that. But, He didn't think I'd do it...and it made a memory. So, why not?!

One way to get the floor mopped. ;)

Our girls LOVE P & H! In Oct, we were tag-teaming with Mom McDonald to watch them so C & B could have a little getaway. It was SO fun spending time with them. The Girls LOVED it. :) I wish I'd gotten more pictures, but grateful I got this one.

Love you boys!!

E's 1st Haircut

E has fine, curly hair. I love it -- there just hasn't been much of it until here recently. I finally had someone around the house to take pictures, so I could trim it. Her hair was getting all icky from just never being cut before. 

Can't really see much -- but it does look MUCH better.

Riding around Church

The girls LOVE riding around w/ G'pa Troy at church... If they see him in his chair, they 'bee-line' straight to him!

Eliana had been smiling...then I think Aspen was making her uncomfortable.

More Marching Contest...

UIL was our final marching contest this year... We sat with DHS & FHS band supporters/directors/spouses -- whatever you want to call us. :) The "blue team". :D

Waiting for Daddy's band...

The Band!

After UIL, us girls went home...and I was able to cut the grass for Brian... Then, Our McDonald parents treated us to Spring Creek for dinner. It was such a nice treat, and sweet time of fellowship. Afterwards, we ran some errands, and then splurged by taking the girls out for ice cream. "A" had been asking for awhile if we could "go to see the nice lady, and get ice cream.." She of course wanted blue!! lol Such a special treat, and evening!

At the Cross...

This Thanksgiving I'm so thankful for so many things this year. And every year.  

After Bible study one day, we had a picnic lunch (we like picnics!) at the Cross, at my parents church. It's a HUGE cross...and it was a beautiful day!! Clear blue skies, crisp, a little cool air... :) Perfect for a picnic. 

I'm so thankful for the Cross, and what it means to me. What Christ has done for me. And His grace that continually carries us through.

Happy Thanksgiving!
