Finders Keepers Losers Weepers! =)

I guess when you live in a big family the
"Finders Keepers Losers Weepers"
rule applies to everything.
Even when something is IN your bed. =)
Tabitha came home one night to find this note on her bed...
Then walked into Hannah's bedroom to find this! =)

Cozy Winter Days

We enjoyed Fall for a few days, but it's starting to feel
a lot like winter! This makes the long cold winters
much more enjoyable! :-)

Deborah, we thought of you when Dad made our first fire this year. ~ Miss you!

Surprise Visit! =)

Mackenzie came from Florida for the week. Lydia had no clue until
Mackenzie came walking into her bedroom this morning.
She was very surprised! She is very excited to have her
here for the whole week! =)

He is doing very well, but is looking forward to going home.
Thank you for all your prayers.

He gave us a tour ~ Naomi wanted to be the one to push him. =)

He wanted to show us where he sits for his meals. =)

Everyone enjoyed listening to Suzy play.

Spending Time With Grandpa

We all went to the hospital today to visit Grandpa. Mom and Aunt Susan have been spending their days at the hospital with Dad and Rachel taking turns at times too. He had a mild stroke today which complicates things since he was scheduled for open heart surgery on Monday. Please continue to pray for him!
