Last day with the family for now...

OK, so I admit I am the grandma, but look at the perspective that Adelaide painted this Nativity from - looking down from above!

I wish we didn't live surrounded by wires.

Grandpa pedals the girls around town - Adelaide is looking back at.......

...the third girl in the back - Lucy the dog!

and trailing behind is the fourth girl, Bethany!

Family time...

I get a little busy when the family arrives... 
...such a blessing to be together

Then all the people left, each for their own home, and David returned home to bless his family.  1 Chron. 16:43

Thanksgiving Day

Nick stopped by with a big turkey he bagged today!

Emma's birthday was celebrated today!

Recognize the angle?

Target practice below the barn

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.”Colossians 2:6-7 NIV

Thanksgiving Dinner!

Even Tom, the guy who checks our fire extinguishers, can't escape Beth's camera 

Yay, no more overcast weather!

We had fun getting this big dinner ready for the drillers who have moved into the area to work on the  Marcellus shale gas reserves

Hooray! Dave brought an electric knife and proceeded to carve all 8 turkeys.

The additional outlets the trustees installed under the counter were a tremendous blessing!

Beth's angle on the dishwashers

"He wrote them to observe the days as days of feasting and joy and giving presents of food to one another and gifts to the poor."  Esther 9:22
