Visitors part 2

Then right before Thanksgiving, my high school friend, Leslie, and her two daughters came to visit. Leslie knows me as well as anyone could and we have LOTS of history together! :) Kayla was the flower girl in our wedding(CAN NOT believe she's in HIGH SCHOOL!!) and little Miss Meggie has wriggled her way into our hearts as well. We don't get to see them as much as we want to, but love every moment we can spend together!

A few days before Thanksgiving, we got our first snowfall, not too much but enough that Dave and the boys did some snowman building.


In November, we had two sets of visitors!! Our first was Robert and Shanna ParkeHarrison. Robert and I have known each other since second grade when our fathers were stationed together in Germany. Robert, "Bobby", and I were also in an opera, Amal and the Night Visitors, together in Germany as well.
The dandylion picture is Kristopher's favorite!

Turns out, Robert's parents are both from the Joplin area. We were stationed in Joplin after Germany. We have remained friends with the Harrison family over the years but this was the first time I've gotten to see Robert in a very long time. He and his wife both attended the Kansas City Art Institute and they came back to do a show at the Nelson Art Gallery. Kye and I attended the artists' talk then Kris and David joined us for the exhibit. It was wonderful to see the Harrison's again and Kye was very intrigued by Robert and Shanna's work. To see more of their work, go to
