Friends and Family

Jim had a meeting in Minneapolis and because it was so close to our friends Sally and Ron's house I went with him.

It is wonderful to be with long time friends that you feel so comfortable with. We laughed together, cried together, and talked and talked.  One day Ron walked in the room and reminded us how many words women had and he was sure were were using all of them. We were making up for all the days, months, years we are not together.

 As we sat by the fire visiting that first morning we looked outside and saw snowflakes!

When we were on the plane flying home I could not help but think of this verse as we looked out the window. 
 The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Psalm 19:1
 While we were gone, Colette and Ashlynn's school had the children dress as their favorite book character and bring that book to school. I am so glad both mothers sent me pictures of the girls!
Colette dressed as Kaya, one of the American Girl dolls.
She carried the book that was her story.
Ashlynn was Angelina Ballerina.  Angelina is a is a ballerina that is a mouse!
Ashlynn made the cutest little mouse.  
I am thankful for the opportunity to visit our friends
and thankful to come back home to family!
