A Semi-Surprise Visit

I was so surprised Thursday morning when Mom called me and said that she and Missy were coming to hand deliver my Birthday present! Later that very same day, they arrived at my house bringing in boxes of, apples, navel oranges and lemons from the valley, and lots of other goodies, like BBQ sauce from Joe's BBQ (things I miss from home)!!!!! I'm so glad I put pork to cook until falling apart and so tender in the crockpot earlier that day, made homemade rolls, and homemade potato salad, not knowing before hand that we would be eating it with Joe's BBQ sauce, with Mom, Missy and Felicity!!!!! We had so much fun together this weekend!

Parker and Gramie (Mom)

Allie and Felicity learning how to make homemade vanilla custard! They were so cute together!

We had a big cheering section at Parker and Jeff's basketball games!
Johns family came too, but I didn't get a photo of them :(

Here's my Birthday present that was the reason behind the visit!
This past summer at our family reunion in Payson , we all stopped at Grannies Attic Antique Shop. I fell in love with these Vintage Christmas serving bowls, not knowing that just a few months later, Dad and Mom would go back and buy them for me for my birthday! Thanks Dad and Mom! I am so looking forward to using them during the Christmas Season!

After we all waved "Bye" to Mom, Missy, and Felicity driving away at the end of a fun weekend,
Allie turned to me and said "Mom, I like Gramie, She is soooo cute!"

Pumpkin Time

Sam was happy to pull all of the seeds out
of the pumpkin!

We roasted the Pumpkin seeds in the
oven with butter and sea salt! Mmmm!

Sam says "I'm thankful for cleaning out
the pumpkin guts, and the seeds were good!"
