...tonight my daughter, esther and her family left after ten glorious days visiting with us in tennessee.
don't get me wrong everything is not always wonderful and everyone has their moments but all in all we had an amazing time of thanksgiving, hanging out, making pizza,
dressed up on many occasions,
played inside...played outside, picked out a tree, shared starbucks with girls, painted christmas paper,
we made cards for soldiers, started a sharing quilt, we cooked cookies, dinners, breakfasts,
took family pictures,
had fireside talks, roasted marshmallows, helped a friend move, decorated a tree, made dinner for a family in need, had a gift exchange, got awesome curtains for rachel, tried in vain to find boots for esther, celebrated birthdays for rachel and jess, piled on G~pa, had lunch out....etc.
it was an amazing time to be spend time together and make new memories.
