It was so warm in Texas on Thanksgiving Day...

we ate dinner outside with family and friends - only bothered by one bumble bee that must have liked the sweet potatoes !

We even had a fire going just for fun !

A visit with Ben, Savannah, Ethan, Drew and Suzanne

I went to see the kiddo's today- I can no longer call them babeis - I had not seen them in such a long time but as I told Suzanne - it is like I see them very often since I read her blog after every new posting -

Ethan is walking, Drew and Ben are trying to walk taking a few steps now and then. Miss Savannah is talking -saying works and making MOO noises like a cow and meaning it to be MOO like the sound a cow makes.

They are the friendless little people - they had not seen me in who knows how long but they gave me hugs like I had seen them yesterday -

So much fun to just sit back and watch them play -

They are such sweet, happy and healthy children to have started out so small - good parenting from Suzanne and Joe and as Suzanne said also with the help of the Diaper Darlings who obey the strict rules of when not to go love on those babies -

A true sign of fall in Texas!

The leaves on the trees in my back yard are all turning red, orange, yellow and brown mixed with a few green leaves - the leaves are so colorful - soon they will all turn brown and fall to the ground.
When I was a child, growing up in Waco Texas, my parents had a huge pyracantha bush in the front yard - the berries were orange and red so a few years ago I got one and put in my back yard. It reminds me of my child hood.
The berries are so heavy on some of the branches they are pulling the branches down.
