The way we remember

Our tree is up, all in bloom. My favorite angels, I got over 20yrs ago when my life changed so much. My hubbies ole bat and glove. The old truck and pull toys he had played with and some of the ole toys are kids played with also. The riding toy Donald made for Shannon who is gone but never forgotten. I wish I had saved those special ones over the kids years. This is the best I can do. The wood name plates Kaydy and I did have all our family. Lydia had to be made this year, name on front birthday on back. The Santa ladder, Donald's dad and mom made for us years ago. Notice the ole pull toy and bubble gum popper, people today would have a field day with the way they were made back then. Yet no one was hurt by them. The tree reminds me of family, and the love of them and peace on earth we should all feel. Please show your tree and what it means to you.

Busy Monday

   Coming out of the weekend, I have been very busy. I do laundry on Mondays. I always wash bedclothes first so I can hang them on the line. It was to rain this afternoon so I got started early. Towels and whites also went on the line. I didn't think to get pictures but I did when I took the rugs out to beat them. We have a lot of sand on the farm so it is easily brought in. Number 1 reason everyone takes their shoes off when they come in.

 As I was doing laundry I got the kitchen cleaned from the weekend. Don't know about you, but Hubby likes me hanging around him when he is home. I'm glad He does and I do every time I can. 

All clean and the floor mopped. Now enjoying laundry done and put away and back on the bed, I can catch up a little on my blog. .

The tree has been up a week now. Funny how the grand kids love to play with the old toys from the past. My hubby's bat and glove, a old general lee car from the dukes of hazard days. The red ladder and Santa my father in law made me when we got married long ago. There is a old pull toy and bubble gum popper. My daughter help make the wooden name signs on the tree. We had to add a new one this year, for Lydia. What's on your tree? Have a wonderful day!

What a great weekend!

I didn't get to see everyone I wanted, but I did have a wonderful Thanksgiving. We had our niece and her family come and stay a few days. We had family dinner at my brothers, with his family. All my kids and family came. It was so much fun! 

 Covered bridge near us.

Should of seen them trying to get me down. Not funny to me but they got a kick out of it,lol.

We got our small tree put up. I decided this year instead of putting presents under it, I went and found the kids old toys, my husbands bat and glove, the old riding toy hubby made for his niece before she passed. I picked out toys all my children and grandchildren played with. I love my tree, memories!

Happy Thanksgiving

I miss the times when all things were closed on the holidays, so all families could enjoy them. Thinking of those far from their home this season.

Thanksgiving, what new hope?

          Last year at this time we were facing my brother in laws cancer. It was a rough start at that time. I was still working and trying to help them out. Doctors, hospitals and words we had no understanding of came into our path. This past year we faced many sorrows, lots of pain, but most of all new birth. Our grand daughter Lydia was born, she is our 7th grand baby. My brother in law David got a rebirth after his stem cell replacement. He will be getting all new baby shots because after that treatment none of his old things before are still there. New birth, amazing! GOD is AMAZING!
          Wishing everyone a thoughtful Thanksgiving !
