Visitors and lighter side

First of all, we were thrilled to have Jerry and Kathy with us for the evening. The kids were so excited to be able to see them again. Jerry and Kathy had been in Texas building houses for an organization similar to "Habitat for Humanity" (and spent a couple of days working for Habitat, too). They were returning home and stopped in with us. Thanks so much for stopping in!

It rained the whole time they were here, so we took the picture in the truck :)

Now, on the lighter side...

Here is my attempt ... can you see it?

Here is John's attempt - better.

This morning, it was really cool - a large group (I counted 38) of what looked like grey herons or egrets or some type of bird with long necks flew overhead. Mercy was the one who spotted them and barked at them (don't ask). I ran in for the binoculars and told John and we tried to snap a picture or two, but it was just so bright that is was hard to get a shot. You'll have to take my word for it that it was really cool :)

Also - it is supposed to SNOW tonight! I hope it does.

Wanna see it again?

It just occurred to me that I could have told you that this was the snow...


  1. You are so funny!! Good friends, priceless.

  2. I believe you about the birds. :)

    Did you get snow this morning??? How exciting!!! I hope so!
