I feel so blessed today, I just spoke to my Mom on the telephone.

Today is her 80Th Birthday! She lives in Wisconsin with my step-Dad.

She has a few health problems but nothing life threatening.My Dad lives in NY and he will be 81 in Dec.

He too is in pretty good health.

I am so blessed to have them still living. I don't see them very often but do talk to them. I hope I get to live that long or longer. I have more health problems than they do.

I promised a picture of Kendra and her braces, well, here it is!!! HaHa
She will kill me when she see this! What a smile!

Gas prices

I can't believe it, gas is now down to $1.96 per gallon here today!
What are some of the prices where you are??
I can fill my car for $20.00 again! If they stay down, I might be able to make a trip to NY this summer. Yeah
Been two years now since I made a trip. A lot has happened in that time, babies born, my uncle passed away to be with Jesus, my Dad has moved.
I have some genealogy research to do up there, really would love to go.
Kendra doesn't want to go, she says there is nothing up there. Where I came from is very rural , 30 miles to any major city. Stores [ what few there are ]close early in the day, so you had better plan ahead. And you had better go somewhere else for gas, the one in town is outragous!
Not any places in town to eat, you have to go to the next town if you are really hungry!
I took one of my grandaughters with me once and she wanted to go to McDonalds for breakfast. I said, you won't find one here baby. I went to the next town and got her pancakes, and she was happy.
There are a lot of things there that is beautiful though. The country side is beautiful, it is dairy country. We milked cows there for many years. Boy, I don't miss that!
But something I do miss is the snow, but only around Christmas time!.
We don't get much here, if any, and then everything shuts down til it is gone. Now Iam getting homesick!


New View...

This is Kendra again...
We are looking for somehow to make our blog look better, if you have any ideas please send them in on a comment :D

Pickle Day, Nov 14

This is for Pikes Pickles.

Simply Carolina

IAM new at this blogging business , SO HERE GOES.

As I sat here today in the beautiful Carolinas, I got to thinking about Thanksgiving and all I had to be thankful for. I thank God daily for the little things [ nice day etc] but have not really given much thought to the bigger things.

I got to thinking about our service men and woman who put their lives on the line for us everyday. Policemen and Firemen also. About Doctors that save lives, school teachers who teach our children. My parents that are getting older, my church family with whom I enjoy fellowship, my friends and siblings [even though we fight, we love each other] my children, who are not perfect but worship the Lord, and I love them so much. My grandchildren that are getting older and driving already!

I also got to thinking about our four seasons, how everything gets reborn in the Spring [all the little buds on the trees] Winter and all its coldness, but beautiful with fresh snow falling, Fall and all its crisp air and falling leaves, children jumping, pumpkins and cocoa and marshmallows.

Summer, so hot, but fun. beaches and Mountains, vacation , schools out. sand, sea and lemonaide

Yes, I have many things to be Thankful for. Freedom of religon, speech, to vote.

and thankful to God for everything he does for me. John 3:16

Hope you all have a nice Thanksiving!
