Three Trees

Week #48 of 52- November 30th There is a story behind the title of this post… We are moving to Houston! We have been hearing “rumblings” (For lack of a better word) about a possible move for a while now, so this was not a total shock to us.  What is shocking to us is how quickly everything is happening.  We were told right before Thanksgiving and Adam has a start date of January 1st.  So we have a house hunting trip scheduled next week along with a couple work days in Houston for Adam to meet his new boss and do some transitioning with the man he is replacing.  In the...

Thanksgiving 2013

Week #48 of 52- November 28th We hosted our neighbors for Thanksgiving this year and really enjoyed  a low key evening with their sweet family filled with good conversation and delicious food!  Even though it was a really “low stress” day, I forgot to take any photos of our Thanksgiving table!  The boys and I LOVED having Adam home.  It has been a long few months of crazy work hours and working on the weekends for him, so we soaked every second of uninterrupted time in. The only photos I took of the day show a little football playing in the backyard.  This is quickly becoming...

Week #47 of 52- November 20th Grandma and Grandpa Peterson stopped through for the evening on their way up to St. Louis.  Grandpa summed it up best when he said as they were leaving, “Even though it was a short visit, we had a lot of laughs!”   Indeed we did. The boys had to show Grandma and Grandpa their Halloween costumes in person. Caleb read us all one of his favorites… Amelia Bedelia.  Lots of laughter! This trip marked Grandma and Grandpa’s final trip from Houston, as they are moving back to St Louis full time. They were carrying the stuff from their Houston...

A Thank You for Daddy

Week #46 of 52- November 13th Caleb had a special writing assignment in school today:  Write a Thank You card to a person of his choosing.  He chose his Daddy, and the result was priceless. Daddy in his work attire, complete with “Adam” and “Exxon” on the front, in red. (This boy is INTO the details!) “Dear Daddy, Thank you for all the stuff you do for us.  You make money to pay for the house we live in, for all of our clothes (we need those!), and our food. Without your hard work we wouldn’t have any of that. Love,...
