Fortunately, the white stuff won't stick around this time. But it won't be long when it will come again and not go away until April (maybe May). Don't get me wrong - I like snow. In fact, I LOVE it for about 3 months but by month 5 - I am DONE!

Honey that is!!
Yep, our bees worked hard and stayed "on task". So much so that they have filled their 2 hives for survival this winter and also OUR little hive.
Papa and Nana came to our house for dinner and then we got to work.
Time to Harvest the Honey!!

Our cousins just attended a beautiful wedding in Idaho. We received pictures - oh so beautiful. All to say, after seeing the pics, they wanted to dress up and "go to a wedding". So Maggie, Elizabeth and Dani Rae dressed up in their finest wedding attire. Then Abbi curled and prettied their hair. They were ready. They went outside and twirled in the grass and celebrated their (pretend) wedding.

The Celebration of Life
* Jerry *
August 26th, 2009 at 2 pm
At the service Greg sang two songs, friends spoke of Jerry's character and memories made with him, and Brian spoke about eternal life and the love of Jesus. Brian started off by having all 13 of Jerry's grandchildren stand up front and he talked about the legacy Jerry leaves behind. Brian then asked his step-grandchildren to come up - 10 more! WOW!! What a great visual.
Everyone did a fabulous job of giving tribute to Jerry. He was a very loved man and will be missed by many.
On the way to the cemetery, there was a caravan of about 50 vehicles. Police held back all other traffic at the intersections. It was honoring to see how people in the oncoming lane would pull over and wait for the progression of cars to pass before proceeding on their way.
After the service/burial everyone was invited to go back to Sue's (and Jerry's) house for food, fellowship and fun.
