I have a great picture of Dad and his brother but he didn't want me to post it and this is the only other picture they got. Psalm 133:1 How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!

-- 2 VSP's (Voluntary Seperation Pay) approved

We also are celebrating with those that have already moved on who just had a baby and another who got marreid this summer and husband is getting home from deployment. I am so grateful for this group of girls that God has placed in my life at this time. What a joy to celebrate with everyone!
Not the best picture of me but a good one of the group.

Our first Christmas gift, the KSU rock from dad's parents. K-State football is heading to the Texas bowl in Houston to play Rutgers. We would love to go but we will be back up in Kansas for the holidays.
Yes, we have a small Christmas tree with very few ordaments but it is fun getting new stuff and see our collection grow every year. Mom could probably tell you where she got every single ordament and Christmas decoration. And when we actually spend a Christmas at our house we will get a real bigger tree!

Us girls were debating about going shopping early in the morning. But the whole family just ended up going later in the morning on Friday. We went to a model train museum on Saturday morning that is still in the process of being built. Dad's uncle knew the owner so we got a private tour. It is amazing the amount of detail that goes into the scenes.
We headed out of town Saturday after lunch and made it home around 1:30pm on Sunday. Mom promptly went to the store, bought food and we had our own Thanksgiving dinner on Sunday night complete with turkey, stuffing, mashed potatos and green bean cassarole. Didn't have time to make pies so we just had chocolate chip cookies for dessert.
The family with grandma. You can't tell in this picture but we look forward to welcoming a new member in the family in the middle of January!

Doggies and mommies.
Georgia's mom had a treat in her hand and it had our attention.I ate a little too much that night and didn't chew my food and I threw up all over Georgia's patio. So my dad took me home and I had to go to bed. It has been fun hanging out the past couple weekends. Mom and dad are excited to go up to Colorado with dad's family for Thanksgiving. I get to stay with Georgia.

We want to take a moment on Veterans Day to thank all those that have served or our serving our country. We know several people overseas now (including some neighbors and mom's good friend's husbands) and many more who have served in the past several years. We have even mourned with friends who have loved ones that have made the ultimate sacrafice.
Romans 13:4 "For he is God's servant to do you good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword for nothing. He is God's servant, an agent of wrath to bring punishment to the wrongdoer." We are so grateful to live in a country that is free, especially free to worship. So thank you to those that have made that possible.

At one point we had a line of kids outside our house. When there was finally a break in kids we snuck off to church to help out at the fall festival.
Help, the tinman needs oil!
Two A&M yell leaders.
Our game to be in charge of was the balls in a bucket. Those ping pong balls went everywhere! Dad's costume was a little tight so when he had to pick up the balls he ripped some seams. So mom was stuck chasing the balls and with the ruby red high heels her feet were hurting. By the end of the night we made the kids get their own balls!
The squadron was decorated and kids could go to each flight room to get candy. Then were was a lot food and games for the kids.

The was one little that was a little too steep! We enjoyed the view from the top though! As we were riding mom kept on getting reminded by dad that she will likely ride where she is looking. So if she sees a snake or big hole not to look at but focus on the level path. How true is that for our lives as well! If we focus on the holes and snakes (temptations and circumstances) it is a lot easier to get distracted by them. If we focus on God (the right path) we will be less likely to fall. We have to remind ourselves not to get distracted by our circumstances (ie. our upcoming assignment) but to look to our Savior! I had my friend Georgia over this weekend and we enjoyed watching football on Sunday especially the Cowboys vs. Texas as we are both Texas natives! I got in a little bit of trouble yesterday when my neighbor ratted me out for eating chocolate. My mom set out some fall colored Peanut Butter cups on a pumpkin plate and I ate the entire plate when they left for dinner. We were over at our neighbors later that night and they found my droppings which had tons of foil in it. So they called to confirm that I had indeed ate the chocolate. But I didn't get in too much trouble because all the dog books say I wouldn't know what I was getting punished for after the fact!

It is finally starting to cool off down here so it feels more like fall. Our camera is still missing (which I assume means gone for good) but mom's work says we can borrow the camera when we want to so that is nice - we won't be in a rush to buy a new one. We bought a pumpkin over the weekend and dad enjoyed carving it on his day off for Columbus Day. It was a powercat until the rain came yesterday and now it is just a weird hole. I am not sure what to think of it. It kinda smells like food.....
Mom tried her hand at flowers this past weekend. We can flowers free on base (thanks taxpayers!) so we figured she had nothing to lose. Any and all planting tips are appreciated!
Finally, if you have time you have to check out this link. (Quick before dad makes me take it off)
Then click on photo gallary in the middle of the page and look at the first picture. Dad is plane #4 in the flyby. Pretty cool huh! They all got introduced during the game and everyone started chanting U-S-A! Dad is so grateful to be "living the dream!"

We had our new neighbor, Delilah, over for the weekend. Mom and dad forgot how hard it was having a puppy around. Even though they are so cute, it is a lot of work when they are not potty trained. Delilah did very well though and we had fun playing all weekend.
Sunday was mom's 26th birthday. Dad did a great job making the day special with breakfast in bed and gifts creatively hid in the house for her to find at different times. He even made a yummy cake for everyone to eat at their couples bible study. I was hoping to get a piece but all I got were some crumbs. Mom also had a softball game on Sunday and they won! It was the last game of the fall season. I guess now they want to start a winter season so the playing never stops!
