AWKWARD–  Sweet Pea celebrating that she is almost tall enough to look out of the peep hole in the door at the hotel.


AWKWARD– That moment that you realize that you’re all in the hotel bathroom together


AWKWARD-  Hubby put grapes IN his salad.  Ewww.  Grapes and
Ranch dressing – Um…..NO.Grapes

AWKWARD-  Walking into the house and seeing my 91 year old father in law awake and reading the newspaper, then looking over at hubby and son and they’re sound asleep in their respective chairs.  What, what?? (sorry, no picture!)

AWESOME–  Our ever expanding church youth group with student led worship!


AWESOME- Choosing a builder and signing papers for our new home to be built starting early Spring!


AWESOME–  A cute dog with a treat to chew.


AWKWARD– The treat is bigger than her head! At least she won’t gulp it down and choke!


AWESOME– Dogs in the sun!!


AWKWARD-  That face you make when you realize someone is sniffing your hinder at the dog park!


That’s it for this week!  Hope this post brought a smile to your face…I enjoy sharing our adventures!

Oh, and HAPPY 16th BIRTHDAY to my Halloween baby, Son #3.  You will see his birthday adventures next Friday!
