Fall and Friends


I think Fall is finally around to stay. How fun to get to enjoy the beauties of the season with Faith and Melody H. !


I had so much fun during their visit! We talked, cooked, talked, ate, talked, played games, talked, watched a girl movie, and talked. Ladies, you've probably spared Kyle from listening to a couple thousand extra words! ;-) It was fun.


We also got out to Walnut Point for an all morning hike - exercise and scenery all rolled into one! Pictures in the woods:


Sisters, sisters . . .



Okay, so we're goofy. We have lots of fun!


Behold: hills in central Illinois!



Lovely ladies at a lake. The trees were just beautiful!


I'm glad I asked you two to bring your own games. We had so much fun (and such interesting conversation) trying something new!


I'm glad you were willing to clear your schedules and make the trip! It was SO much fun to have you down! Friends and family are treasures you can't buy - and I am definitely rich!

What a wonderful visit you all had. It warmed our hearts just to view your photos and read of your special time together.

P.S. I am so excited, I have finally figured out why we can only leave comments occasionally. You can teach an old dog new tricks! :)

HI Gretchen!
Those are both such fun games. We've played them with my family before and we have such a great time.
How wonderful you got to have some girly-time!
Blessings. When are you due?
