Star in November

You wouldn't realize there's much to do in Star but we had a week of outdoors during our Thanksgiving break. We take a trip to central Texas once the holidays roll around and the spoiling of the grandkids begins. 
Swinging from a good pecan tree, hunting in the freezing cold, shooting at targets, cousin time, making the boys haul new firewood to the porch, playing with Nana's Lego Christmas collection and goofing off in the only playground in town. It was a fun week. I was happy to use my camera...been missing it.

In the country again, after a whole year - Christmas Card 2018

Well howdy! It's been a year and no posts and I'm slowly convincing myself that this blog is worth my time and efforts to continue. We have had a wonderful 2018 and we look forward to 2019 with the same delight. Meanwhile, here was our family portrait for our Christmas card, in my parent's field. Last year's picture was taken at my in-laws. 
I'm curious where 2019 pictures will be taken at :) 
A lot of growth this year, when compared to last photos. 
The kids were told by their Moomie to jump for a picture, and I analyzed each of their personalities through their jump. In a nutshell, Jonah doesn't have a care in the world with his best jump, Elena is full of joy but by the book looking at the camera, and Andrew does it the fastest (laziest?) way possible with a hint of goofiness. Makes me wish Gary and I would have jumped too, ha! 
Here's the link for last year's post for your convenience.

Our Christmas Card to You 📭

Merry Christmas!!! May you and your loved ones have a blessed Christmas and New Year. We had fun taking these pictures at the Witty pasture surrounded by cow patties and dried sticks but most importantly, each other. The boys got to see an actual fox hole on our way back and we had a little diva amongst ourselves...his name is Andrew.

Luke 2:11 "For into you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord."
