Deborah's Trip to Texas

When the Hales left our house they took a stowaway with them!
I (Deborah) was very happy to be that stowaway! :)

Passing through Memphis, we stopped at Bass Pro in the Pyramid

140 blueberry plants planted in one day!

Afterwards we celebrated with Blue Bell!
It was so good to taste Blue Bell again after it was off the shelves for so long!!

We spent Sunday afternoon with the Hutchins and had a great time!

Off on a shopping trip with Esther and her sweet baby

Hannah and I working at the sign-in table for a political event - Dan Flynn for State Representative

I thought the boots used for decoration was a cute idea!

Hannah and I spent a few afternoons hammering in stakes and getting up the irrigation hoses for the blueberries

All finished! :)

Another carton of Blue Bell cleaned out  :)

A load of chickens arrive to be processed. Time for work!
It always surprises me how late the sun comes up in Texas! :)

A beautiful sunset

We had a lot of fun working on that skeleton while watching Tom and Jerry!

This picture just makes me laugh! Bert is NOT letting go!

More Blue Bell!! We counted up that we went through 13 cartons of Blue Bell while I was in Texas!

Sunday afternoon walk to see the horses

I really enjoyed being at the New Year's Party for the local Volunteer Fire Department!
Daniel was recognized for going to over 40% of the calls

And Sam was made Fireman of the Year!

I enjoyed lots of cuddles with sweet baby Corrie!

The night before I left Daniel took me out to see his incubators.

I had a wonderful trip!  Leaving was really sad! :(
