Friends and Family

We had a nice weekend. After work on Saturday we went to my parents to visit with my Aunt and Uncle. They were here visiting from Arkansas. Its always wonderful visiting with them. The kids had a blast too. C wouldn't stop rough housing with Uncle Coy. My Aunt said shes been having such a nice time visiting with her sister (my mom). All shes wanted to do is cook. My mom does love to cook. She doesn't taste test her own cooking though. Uncle Coy helped with there garage conversion too. Its looking good. My Uncle Roy called while I was there, so I got to talk to him a little bit. Hopefully we can get back there to see everyone soon. While we were there my friend Mark and Janel were there visiting for a little bit too. They adopted a handicapped baby. The baby is three now. He gets around though. Very happy little boy. It was great seeing them too. We usually catch up to Mrk and his wife around the holidays every year. The kids helped make apple dumplings. I am not a big fan of cooked apples, but they did look and smell great. Especially when it was topped with a rum sauce. Plus there was Ice Cream Kris' favorite. She found a spoon just her size too. I am sure you can imagine. Unfortunately Kris had to work last night and I had to work this morning so we had to get back home yesterday. She did get a couple hours sleep last night before she had to go to work.
Now its time to start planning our Thanksgiving meal. We are not ham eaters nor that much into turkey. Maybe this year we will stray a little and do something unique. We'll see.

Yeah you'll visit and as Mike says "Monkeys might fly out my butt"

LOL IF you ever do decide to actually visit somewhere further than your back door...you have a place to stay (We have two extra doghouses)

We're only a little further than Seattle.
