Company Girl Coffee 8/14

Good afternoon everyone,
It has been a couple of weeks since I participated in Company Girl Coffee and I have missed it. It has been a very busy around here and I'm looking forward to things slowly down a little bit.

My parents and grandmother were here visiting last weekend and brought a wonderful new toy for our backyard. A TRAMPOLIINE. I'm a little jealous, because these are the same parents that would not let us have a trampoline growing up. Currently, I'm making up for that fact by jumping on the trampoline at least once a day. The kids are really enjoying it and my dad even joined in on the fun while they were here. I think he wishes he had a trampoline when he was younger too.

This is what 67 on my Dad looks like. Hope it looks like that on me too.

Today's Small Thing was well accomplished when one of my friends called this morning. Life is crazy for us both and it had been several weeks since we had a chance to have a lengthy converstaion, it was great to catch up with her. Yesterday's Small Thing was completed when my husband and I made a batch of grape jelly and canned it. Here is a fun picture from that activity.

This is our 2 1/2 year old daughter sitting in the canner before we got started on the canning. Yes, she is very small for her age, she got my height not her father's.

Love the pix!!! I pray for energy like that when I'm older. =) That is fantastic! I'd buy a can of that. hehe

Have a great weekend Camille!

Did you get your dad's genes? What a great example to follow...having fun at a "young" age!

We never got a trampoline either, and didn't get one for our kids, much to their disappointment. We should have, really. Everyone loves to jump on one...my sister's kids use theirs constantly.

I personally, after 5 pregnancies, cannot jump on them. Nuff said.

Cute little "peach" in the canner! Great moment.

I love that you have parents who visit...what a blessing! I AM so thankful to be home for a while, traveling was great, but wow, how much I missed the comfort of home and being with Les and the children!
I hope we can get together again soon!
hugs!
