November 11, 2008 (Tuesday)

I have been a bad blogger....It's been like "forever" since I blogged last. Well, I guess I'll play catch up. Went back to Iowa & to the International Quilt Festival in Houston. We also got to see my daughter's best friend & her husband too, but forgot to get pictures!!! They gave my mom & I a tour of Houston! It was fun! I am also finally adding pictures of Halloween cards & treats!

We visited the Covered Bridges Of Madison County in Winterset, IA. It is such a cool bridge!

Family, Aquariums, and Fairs....Oh My!!!! This is a picture of 96% of our family. We are missing my Granddaughter (who was taking a much needed nap), two dogs, and 1 bird! My DD & her DH came home from Korea on Leave for a couple of weeks, my oldest DS & his DW & the two grandchildren came from Ada, OK, and our youngest DS came up from college in Norman! It's very rare that we have all 3 kids at home at the same time these days!
