It was such a pleasure to host the M. family in our home recently! Although short, it was a fun visit. There are not as many pictures as I would have liked, but isn't that always the case? :)

Looking at familiy pictures

C. also looking at photo books

Gathered 'round the kitchen island

The following day, they so sweetly helped us rake not only our yard, but also our pond! (the pond is very hard to rake!)

In case anyone was wondering, that is a lawn sweeper on the back of the tractor


Poor I., it looks like he had had too much raking :D

Daddy Dearest                                                Cute R.

The lovely Moms

S. hauling sticks

(Many thanks to Miss A. for the raking pictures!)

For lunch we roasted hot dogs

"Not the camera!"  :D (I think that might be A.'s animal cup on the table.......well, maybe not :)


She liked her pink pig cup :)

Visiting around the campfire

Daddy used a frisbee for a shield while J. fought with a play battle axe :D

Some of the kids helped me feed the neighbor's cat...thanks for your help!

A game of Apples to Apples

D. had some college work to do

Daddy, Mr. A., and Miss A.

Mrs. M. with her partner and Mumzie with her partner

D. was done with his homework...Yay!

One of my teammates for the game Worst Case Scenario.

Our team was The Zebra's (and we were second place!)

C. all streched out and comfy

Daddy reading everyone a bedtime story....."Godfrey Gordon Gustavus Gore"

The adults and older kids finished off the night with more visiting, then we all went to church the following day. After church they left for home. Thanks for visiting, M. family!
Verse of the day taken from my Bible reading several days ago: "And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, He went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed." Mark 1:35

Until next time,

  1. Looks like such a fun visit!!! I can't believe you made them do all that raking though...I mean who would do that when they have company?!!! Hehe!!!! :)

    Wish I could have heard Dad read Godfrey Gordon Gustavus Gore.....!!


  2. It was indeed fun....although we didn't MAKE them rake...they offered. :D I know you were just teasing. :) You are so funny, Katie.

    When you guys come to visit sometime I'm sure you could have Dad read Godrey Gordon Gustavus Gore :)


  3. I definitely was joking......especially considering all the work we made you do outside at our house! Love, Katie
