A Week Around Kentuckessee!

It's been a cold week hear in Northern Tennessee/Kentucky but the weather is starting to look better and so are our spirits after a pretty tiring week!

Foggy mornings all week! :(

Beautiful afternoon - with deer running across the field!

Swinging all by herself!

A Deployed Thanksgiving

Jim's Thanksgiving day started with helping at the refueling station so that the regular refuelers could enjoy a hot Thanksgiving meal.  Then Jim joined the rest of the command team in helping to serve the Thanksgiving meal that evening in the main DFAC!

Jim's the front one in the Angry Birds helmet! :)

Getting ready to refuel - those years at Delta coming in handy! :)

Ship 'em out!

We are sending Daddy a storage box full of fun Christmas stuff and oh how I wish we could be sending ourselves over to meet him!

Allie Dog

While visiting Aiken, we HAVE to stop by Miss Sallie Ann's shop and see one of our favorite pups, Allie! I love collies anyway, but Allie is just a great dog and she was so excited to see Margo again and play in the back yard together!  They are so sweet together and it was so nice to visit with them!

One of our favorite places...

We got to visit one of our favorite places while we were in Aiken, the Scotten family owns a large property and we are able to go visit their horse pasture and enjoy some fun time together!

We finally figured out the new baby carrier Katherine got for Riley.  We started with a doll and the instructions booklet, but ended up being able to put Riley in it safe and secure!

Grandma's Park!

More time with Riley!

Posing for Christmas!
