Love Those Quiet Sundays

Well, we had five of the grands here yesterday to 
decorate little trees for their bedrooms for the holidays. 

Papa 'Oder, Jace's name for Keith, held a very interested Hayden. 

While mother Amber helped two year old Carson choose his decorations. 

 Paiton, Jace and Jax all worked on their own trees. 

Brynn and Hailey were unable to come, as they were sick.  We missed them. 

We had potato soup (well, the adults did), cookies and chocolate milk, and an 
hour flew by. 

Church has changed to 4 PM for the winter, so coming home it is almost dark. 

The little pond filled a bit after the rain this week... it was very, very low. 

The dogs and I took the long way around today to go to the park for a walk. 

It was about 48 degrees as we drove, and the farm animals were loving it. 

Hawks were everywhere, but out of my camera range, mostly. 

That was a big 'un, and the colors on him are beautiful. 

The big ditch has filled up again, but I still don't see any traveling birds in it. 

The squirrels at the City Park in Basehor are busy filling their storerooms; they must know we have 
bad weather coming at the end of the week. 

Let's all have a peaceful Thanksgiving Week! 


  1. Making memories in a beautiful place. They will say, Remember when...and it will be a great gift to remember it again and again.

  2. Papa Oder looks happy holding that sweetie. Love your sideboard Mary Ann. The grands are cute. Neat idea to have them do their own trees.

  3. I love the idea of decorating a special tree for their room. What a festive way to start off the holidays! Potato soups sounds wonderful too. It's one of my favorites. I had ham and bean here, but it's almost gone now. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving week. There is much to be thankful for.

  4. Ah those little trees were so sweet! Those kids are cute. yes, I hope we all have a peaceful week also. stella rose
