Time with Family

This is going to be mostly pictures of our family time in the last month.  We've had a lot going on.
Amy and the girls (Abigail and Evelyn) spent a week with us before we drove down to McAllen.  Matt went to the Dallas area to help his in-laws clean out Amy's aunt's house after she unexpectedly died. Amy's Dr didn't want her to travel, but Matt was more comfortable with her staying with us with the girls.  That way, if she went into labor she would have us here with her.
It was a fun and busy week.  

 Guess who found the markers.   We thought we had put them all up!
 The girls love the old Fisher Price toys that we have.

 Amy and the girls went to the Sr luncheon with us.

 We took Amy and the girls out to La Siesta for lunch.

Baking time with Grandpa.  Making cookies that Abigail can have.  She is allergic to dairy, egg, and peanuts.

Story by the fire.

Last weekend our grandson got married, down in Eagleville.  Larry invited the whole family that was here to the rehearsal dinner.  We all helped prepare the food for about 80 people.

We had a great time at the reception.  These old people even did some dancing.

Sunday after church, those of us that were still here went out to eat at Hickory Falls.

These kids want to know if they can get royalities from their Uncle Larry if they advertise for him. :)

Tuesday we met Larry in Mt. Pleasant at The Grill.  We had lunch and then we went out to "The Farm."  He has built a cabin and plans to use the land to hunt and relax.  We helped him with some things that needed to be done.

 Probably the best cookie in the world.

P.S.  The project got finished in McAllen, TX.  The guys did such a great job, but just didn't have time to quite finish it.  It looks great.





Grandma and Grandpa hope to take a rest now.  It's been a busy month, but we are so thankful for family that we could see and spend time with.
