And bags full of leaves, Are light as balloons.
Like rabbit and deer, Running away.
Flowing over my arms, And into my face.
Till I fill the whole shed, And what have I then?
From contact with earth, Next to nothing for color.
And who's to say where, The harvest shall stop?
So, this weekend ended up being a great weekend! Even though I missed the big game, and Notre Dame ended up Beating the cleated socks off of Purdue with out me there to witness it...It was good. We spent some great time with our families. Here are some pictures, but please forgive me for not having more of Brian's family. The battery on Gertie the camera was dying :(
And Don't forget to sign up below for a snowman for your very own with love from The Shaw's!
And so it begins. Isaac found a bag of stockpile items that I was getting ready to take to the Shaw's. He fell in love. He and Abbie already love my coupons. Now, we have found a new use for the many tubes of toothpaste and Robitussin!!!
Starting them early...Gotta love seeing the money making power in the hands of someone so tiny. Think of all the ways that she will prosper her house! By the way, she is holding my mom's new coupon organizer that I made her for her B-day!
The Craker Book up close. This was actually a coupon/recipe flyer I found at Meijer. Katie was really into the couponing thing.
So sorry that this is not a good picture. They were getting ready to pose for Mrs Shaw, and I snapped it...it is the only one I have. So my kids just have to look yucky in it!
Brian preached on Sunday. It was the first time in 9 months that he had, which was filled with many emotions for both of us. He pulled out his Pastor Brian Bible. For any of you that know Brian, you will remember that he stored this Bible away when he resigned from New Hope, and said that he would only use it when he preached or became a Pastor again. He cried when he did this. It was very heartbreaking to watch. I was so suprised to look down on the pew beside me, and see this. I must have looked like an idiot to be taking a picture of a Bible in the middle of the church, but it brought me to tears.
