Weekend Retreat, November '09

Hey y'all!

Hope you had a blessed day of thanksgiving!! Ours was just-incredibly wonderful. We have so, so much to be thankful for. Thank You, Lord!! We had the dear Smithie, Campana and Smithie II families with us, and also the two other Morton families here on the farm, and also our precious grandparents, GrandDaddy and Nana. It was such a refreshing time together.

The dear Campana's are here now, and we're having a ball!! We get to keep them 'till Sunday, Lord willing. :D Ah. Delicious.

And now, pictures from the other weekend! And what a blessed weekend it was. Praise the Lord for such precious times together!!

Alrighty: now presenting, The Grand Collage!!
Pizza, anyone? We had some folks come in Thursday and Friday afternoon (I love it when people come 'sooner'!!) but most of the crowd arrived that evening. :) As you can see, pizza was our choice of food. And lots of it, LOL.

The remnants of 'ze feast!
Wesley and Rachel were so sweet and opened up their cozy home down the lane to all the girls-Rach was so wonderful and had goodies piled high with chilled root beers and lit candles for us when we came stumbling in at 1:00 or 2:00 am. We felt so loved on and were super comfy and warm! Bless you both, darlings.
