Catch-up time

I know, I know, it's been a while since I've updated! We've been busy living life, what can I say? As for what all we've been up to, I think I'll let the photos pretty much speak for themselves.

A couple weeks ago my parents were able to fly out for a visit. Yes, I said fly. They normally drive as Mom hates to fly but because of time contraints, decided they would be able to spend the most time with us if they took an early flight. We had such a great time with them while they were here.
We enjoyed some great meals, so nice to have extra help in the kitchen!

Grammy brought a gingerbread house to put together, it turned out to be quite a challenge, but it's still standing, that icing is tough stuff!
We flew to NC last week for the Kaufman's Annual Christmas party. In addition to all the meetings that Tim attended, we were able to spend some time with family. Calista's little boy, Magnus, and Tyler really hit it off and had lots of fun playing together. Here they were watching Uncle Ken washing his truck and laughing when he would throw the rag up to the window.

We attempted some family photos with surprisingly good results

We've had some really bad hair days around here lately,
And yes, we've even sampled butter. I had it softening on the counter when I turned around to find Tyler sitting on the floor, really chowing down!It's been an interesting month, to say the least, we're looking forward to what the new year will bring. Happy Holidays from our family to yours!

Wordless Wednesday

Monday, December 1, 2008

You know you live in a small town when . . .

first, a little background. We live in a very small town. I don't know if small is the right word, I think itty, bitty, we-don't-even-have-a stop-light, barely have stop signs, is a better way to describe it. It's very quaint, to say the least. One thing our town does have, however, is a newspaper. It also services 2-3 other even smaller surrounding towns, so all together we seem to manage to have enough things to say to warrant a paper. Well, it must be a slow week at The Times Tribune because I just got a call from them wondering if I had any news to put into the paper! I'll have to admit, it sorta stunned and surprised me, at first I thought it was a joke. When I realized that they were serious I politely told them no, I didn't have any news. You see, once a week when the paper comes out, there is 1/2 a page dedicated to the goings-on of your neighbors. There you will find out who went out for lunch together after church on Sunday, who had relatives visiting and the occasional birth announcement. It must be a really slow week at the paper if they're calling me for news, so sorry to disappoint!
