JUST VISITING...

Lately we've had some time to just visit our loved ones!  I just realized what an outdated term that "loved ones" might be.  It's a beautiful phrase though, and I think we should use it more often!


One visit we made was to Son #1's girlfriend's house.  She bought a house in OKC this summer and has two roommates renting the other rooms.  It's in an area that was built in the 1920's and is pretty popular with 20-somethings right now!  We were wanting to visit sometime, but it's kind of hard to invite yourself over!  But my son said recently they wanted to host us for "Crockpot Sunday."  Sounded good to us.  I was proud of them for wanting to do this!  Our schedules don't really mesh on Sundays, but we took the invitation and ate a little later than our normal.  They went ahead and invited my mother and sister too.  It was delightful!

First Sunday Dinner here!

She has an awesome, quirky style!  One unusual thing my son bought for the house was the x-ray light box on the wall.  It acts as a light fixture and also goes with her collage on the wall.

We also just went down to my husband's hometown recently!  We got to eat a meal with lots of relatives, go to a football game, play cards until the wee hours of the morning and pick pears!  

 My SIL has this awesome fall arrangement outside her home to take pictures by...and encourages others to do so!
 This little cutie is my nephew's youngest and was a lot of fun at the game.  We won, by the way, 80-34!  Quite a long game!
 I forgot how hard it is to catch their smiles.  But she makes a lot of funny faces!


Just visiting is pretty sweet and necessary if we want to stay connected in our family relationships!
