And then it turned cold

While Thanksgiving was nice and warm, by Saturday, it was darn near freezing.
But, it was Krista and Mia's last day in Tennessee
so we headed out to Tellico for some sight seeing.
The last time we went to Bald River Falls was in the summer. 
A 36 degree day in front of a waterfall is pretty uncomfortable.
Hence the lack of a decent picture. 

All in all, we had a great visit with Krista and Mia and can't wait for them to come back down.

A Warm Fall Day

After hanging out for awhile on the swingset

we took advantage of the warm day to walk outside and visit the farm animals 

Of course, no walk is complete without a swing 

but 2 yr olds don't always like to take turns. 
Which may result in some hair pulling, followed by I'm sorry hugs. 

After visiting the chickens, there was some more walking 
to go visit the cows. 
And this guy, who used to hang out in our front yard.
The cows weren't sure what to think 
And neither was Mia when that big one there mooed at her. 
Of course, it was still Thanksgiving.
So we had to say good bye to the cows and head back inside for pie!

A Thanksgiving visit

So Thanksgiving was this past week, and we got to spend it with Aunt Krista and Mia.
There was a theme to this holiday. 
It was called don't look at the camera and stuff your face. 
Which we all did willingly.
Luckily, it was gorgeous day to burn off some calories. 
So we headed outside to play. 
More pics to come.....

A trip to Kentucky

We took a trip to Kentucky on a dreary October Saturday for my graduation.
We visited the campus of Frontier Nursing University.

Then headed off to my official graduation ceremony.
I actually finished my program last December, but since there is only one ceremony each year, this was my opportunity to celebrate obtaining my master's degree.
The children, of course, were super excited, especially the older boys. :op 

There was a hooding and a pinning and unfortunately, due to the lighting, some blurring too. 
The weekend culminated in the defacing of my body
Along with a few of my Frontier sisters.
