Last One Home

Julia's brothers are both in school this year, leaving only Julia and her mom home now. Although  I'm sure Julia misses her brothers quite a bit, she and her mom seem to be making the best of it.

Senior Year

The triplets are in their Senior Year now. It won't be long until least I feel that way. Even though it will  seem longer to them, it will still go too fast.

This picture is of Mason.  He is photogenic.  I love that smile.

He has already been accepted to an instate college for next year.

How is the world can time go so fast???

The Pine Tree Barn

The Pine Tree Barn is a family business that has done well in Wooster, Ohio. It is a quality furniture store and features lovely gifts and more. It is a pleasant drive from our home. I don't get there very often; but this year, I've been twice, about a week apart in November. This  picture was taken on the first trip. I was with my ORU ( Opinions R US)  girlfriends.

We always fit lunch in as well at their Granary Restaurant in the same barn. It offers  fine luncheon cuisine. I personally love their French onion soup and their muffins.

While eating one can view the lakes, Christmas tree farm and the Killbuck Valley.

School started for Caleb and Oliver in late August on the 27th. Since it was Oliver's  very first day of school, I added the layout of him  at recess.

Ava Played in the Leaves

Ava had a big time playing the  this huge pile of leaves in her back yard at the end of September.  I'm not sure how they had so many, so soon, but the did!

By the way, our leaves are still falling. It just doesn't seem to end with all these oak trees.

Thanksgiving 2019

I have to say, our Thanksgiving was great.  It was a pleasant drive down to our daughter's home in Marietta. The day before, the weather had been hazardous  with wind gusts up to 50 mph, but it was very nice Thanksgiving day.

April and her husband Tim had their sons Jarod and Mark there with their wives and the grandchildren who were lots of fun.

The  food was especially yummy and I didn't have to cook a thing. I thought it would make me feel bad that I hadn't contributed, but actually I really appreciated the day off.  It was a blessing  to see our family doing so well.

The sad thing is, although  I wasn't working, I didn't get many pictures at all. I really don't know what has happened to me, the one who generally took zillions of photos wherever I went. Lately,  I've just not stepped up to the plate, but truly just didn't even think of taking pictures. Oh, I did get a few. While I generally would have taken at least 100, I took maybe 6 and all of them were of four out of 14 of us. It is just crazy.

I will make a layout soon, I hope with those few pictures.  But now, I want to post something and I decided to use a layout I made in August of a trip Jarod, Hope and their 4 children made to Europe.
Here it is:

The four children who are all in the second picture are from top to bottom Sam, Ryan, Reagan and Quinn.

It was great visiting with them all yesterday and hope it isn't too long before we can see them again.

Big Snow

Yesterday I posted pictures of our grandchildren suffering in the heat of Fort Collins in early much as kids can suffer with large ice cream cones. This time, I've done a layout of them as they worked on a snow fort since God sent them 14-16 inches of snow. Looks like they can adapt well! And look even their dog, Rado, is into this fun.
