That was the week that was.

We had quite a week this past week.

Lots happened.

Here's one thing:
Elizabeth texted me this great picture.
That is Andrew wearing his Great Granddaddy Andy's cowboy hat,
and holding his Grandma Peggy's guitar.

Isn't that great?
And don't you just love how happy Andrew looks?


On Wednesday we went to OK City for our monthly board meeting,
and look what was just outside the front of the bank building...

Being a Lower Rio Grande Valley Girl - growing up in Mission, TX -
I am ALWAYS amazed when I see such beauty.
Well, Mission had its own beauty, but not trees like that!

On that very day (November 8), my dear sister-in-law (one of my best friends)
celebrated a birthday (I won't say which)!!!
AND the big news this year was that in August she and Ken celebrated 50 years of marriage!!!

And here they are with their kids and grandkids...
Now that is a super great picture!!!



The next day, November 9th, was precious Anna's 7th birthday.
She's my twin's youngest grandchild and I love her so much.

(I don't know why there is so much space here.)

Here is one of my favorite pictures of her...
(We weren't that red-faced in real life.)

And here she was a little later...

And here she is now!
Isn't Anna beautiful?
(And she is beautiful inside, too.)


Then Saturday, November 11, Nell turned 4 (four)!!!
I don't know how that can be because she was only born a few months ago, right?

Ah, but it seems like she's always been with me. 

And here we are at her birthday party Saturday...


I will conclude my week's news with this...

After Nell's birthday party we attended our neighborhood's chili cookoff.
Sam made our chili!
It was super deluxe!!!

Here he is with Liam...

It was a fun chili party, we got to meet lots of folks,
and eat some YUM.

So that was our week.

It was great!!!
