We had a great Thanksgiving - Great times with family and great food. It was all great fun!

We missed the family that wasn't able to come, and look forward to another time when we can gather together with them.
We are truly grateful for all that we have been blessed with. Thanks to all you add such joy to our lives!

This was a few days ago when I took lunch to Terry in the field while he was harvesting corn.

This is today with his last load of corn. He came home for lunch and then took the corn to dump.
We're done!

Hooked on Toys? No, Hooked on Heritage Makers Studio and Blogging!

Thomas and Dana's guest book was one of the most fun books I've created and I was so excited when it came and didn't have any major flaws. We got to see it briefly after the reception and saw that many signed it. I do hope it is a treasure for forever. You can view it at at the bottom of our blog. I've just published a couple other books for our grandkids. (Shhhhh! they are for Christmas.) I can hardly wait to see them. I'll have to take a peek before we give them away. My problem now is that I'm not sure what to do next :)

I do enjoy blogging, so maybe I'll keep it updated more since I don't have another project going on for a moment.

If you have a blog and are viewing our blog and we don't have you on our family or friends blog list then please leave us a comment and we'll add you to it. We'd love to keep in touch with your family too.

We hope you enjoy our family blog! Have a great day, everyday!

Last of Our House Project photos...

The last photo has been added in our slide show. It is a finished building project, but not a finished decorating project. It will most likely be an ongoing project and take awhile to finish the decorating. What you cannot see in the last photo is all of the things lined up against the north wall. There are frames and things waiting to be put in place. I've got to get a feel for what will look best, and what will work best for our family needs, and there are several other things on my To Do list that might take priority.

Just a Note!

Terry had a doctor visit today and we learned that he can wait a while for his next treatment. He wants to get his harvest complete, and the doctor agrees that it would be fine to wait. So, next appointment is December 8th and we'll update after that.

The Wedding!

The big event is now over. We are so pleased that the open house held here was well attended, even though it was on a week night and a big election day. THANKS to all who attended and who helped that night and to those who helped me get ready for that night!!!!! Pictured here are Connor, Gregory, Thomas and Dana, Michael, Anthony, and Chase.

The wedding the next day was wonderful. They are now sealed for time and eternity. Dana looked so beautiful and Thomas was so handsome. They look great don't they! This photo was taken as they walked out of the Columbia River Temple.

The reception in Utah was so beautiful and we enjoyed meeting more of the family and friends. I don't have any professional photos of any of these events yet - all I have are those that the kids took, but I'll update when we get those photos.

Thomas and Dana are now in Virginia and beginning their busy, but wonderful life together.
We are home and trying to get things in order here. The last few months were a bit hectic and overwhelming, and left us with a lot to do. And, the farming is not yet done for the season, so we are up and going, but just a little slower ;)
