Just Getting Caught Up

Standard

A couple weekends ago we drove to Pocatello for the best state football game ever!  Our good friends, the Moores, called to tell us that their youngest, who is a senior, was heading for the state football game with his Declo, ID team.  Hubby had asked his Papa to let us know if the Declo football team made it to state!  We got there just in time for the game and it was a good one.  Declo was ahead the whole time but not so much that there weren’t some tense moments.  The topper on the cake is that Beak (the said senior) had his one and only ever end zone catch for a touchdown!  Exciting!  We stayed the night in their lovely guest house and had a wonderful breakfast with the whole family before we went our way.  We weren’t the only ones who made the trip for the game so we got to see an old friend who is an artist and a couple of the older Moore kids!  It was great!!!

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving with our son, Jesse, and his family in Boise.  We ate, we laughed, we played Apples to Apples with 6 adults and 8 kids.  It was LOUD and fun!  The next day we had a delicious breakfast and then piled into our two cars and drove back up to Cascade Country in search of our Christmas trees.  It was probably the quickest we have ever accomplished that task.  The snow fell so sweetly so that we had a few inches of snow on the trees and on the path as  we trudged through to get to our trees.  It was beautiful and everyone enjoyed the Eggnog and Lorna Dunes we shared after we were back to the cars.  We drove home in the dusk and counted it another successful Thanksgiving weekend.

About cascadecountry

I am finding that being grateful makes what you have more than enough!!!! I am grateful for my husband of 40+ years, my grown children and their spouses, my eight grandchildren, my two doggies and a darling kitty! I am surrounded by a wonderful family and friends who bless my life, and I believe in the undeserved redemption that is mine in Jesus! Hubster and I live in a small mountain village in the heart of Idaho and are so grateful for the beauty that surrounds us.
