Beautiful music

We thank God often for the determination that He put into this girl to overcome the physical obstacles she faces.  She has worked so hard at playing the piano and she is doing a great job...she has far exceeded our expectations.  Watch this beautiful left hand coordination and be amazed with us!

I love autumn

The autumn colors have been particularly beautiful here in Georgia this year.  I have seen so much lovely foliage while driving around town, but driving is not conducive to picture-taking.  Here are a couple of pretty trees from our area (there was a magnificent, vibrant, orange-hued tree down the road that I still wish I had pulled over to photograph! Oh well).

Other than that, we have been busy with everyday things.  Abigail and I got sick almost a week and a half ago and are still fighting the remnants of it...this is a stubborn, lingering virus.  I have started Christmas goal is to finish before everyone else starts because the only thing worse than shopping is shopping with everyone else and their brother! :)  School is trucking right along and we are only a month or so away from our halfway mark.  We've still been enjoying days around 70 degrees, but it's fun to wake up to sparkling frost most mornings.  The cats are all hunkered down and ready to hibernate!

Hope you're enjoying your autumn, too!

A little bit of wanderlust

 A lovely railroad scene in North struck my fancy!

Busy days, cold nights

We've been busy with the usual stuff...
Bruce and David spent all day Saturday working at our new church building, while Abigail and I got groceries and did housework (we stopped by the church for a tour, too).  The kids and I were there painting yesterday, but I forgot to take a picture of that!
 The nights are getting colder, so David got his annual pair of new footie pjs.  Here he is with hugs for his grandmas. :)
 Here is our sweet Mindy...she loves for me to carry her around like this in the mornings, but it's not as easy as it used to be when she weighed only a few pounds!  She's so cute!
