Pumpkin Patch Pictures!

890 miles in 34 hours!

I just thought I was busy before I decided to take my family on a short but very sweet adventure. We went to surprise our Pawpaw Barnes for his birthday. He lives North-east of Lubbock Texas. We drove up after lunch- got there at dinner, stayed the night, played and packed up at breakfast, enjoyed a birthday celebration lunch and cake, then got in the car and made it home by bedtime. It took a total of 34 hours! WHEW!

We sure do love our Pawpaw Barnes.

This is him and the boys. They love eachother!

And this is the kiddos about to song happy birthday. Big cake huh? And the one stands for #1 Pawpaw!

On our way out we stopped at one of my favorite places in Texas. The Punkin' Farm. Will post pics soon!

TOO much to say.. SO little time!!

The Stricklands have been BUSY lately. Just busy with life! Im hoping this week things can get back into order and slow down.

Since September we have started to lead a lifegroup- which is so exciting- but takes much more of our time. We have had the flu- twice, went on a camping trip, and had two major sale on two different Saturdays: one was an estate sale for my grandmother and the other our garage sale.

We have also been committed to Financial Peace University- which I hope I can write about soon! We are learning so much!

A few nights ago, we met up with some friends to eat pizza and carve pumpkins. It was alot of fun- and I actually grabbed Joels iPhone for a few pics.

Hopefully I can blog more as things slow down. Have a great week!
