Last Friday Roy and I were talking about what we should do over the weekend. You know, things like edging, mopping the floors, and so on. As we pulled up in the driveway and got out of the car, Roy said, "We won't have time to do any of that." "Why," I said. "Look behind you," Roy told me. When I did, my mouth dropped open because there stood my mother, and my dad was stepping out of his truck. They came all the way from OK (7hrs) just to see me! I found out that they and Roy had been planning this little surprise for about a month now! Seems I was left out!!!! It was a really nice weekend. We shopped (my mom has lost so much weight she is in a large now!), cleaned (mom brought me these new Swiffer duster things that make dusting super easy), and cooked and ate (we made T-day dinner since they were here). After mom just had knee replacement surgery this summer, it was a difficult trip for her to make. It really was a nice surprise. Now we won't see family again until Xmas. Roy has promised that he won't do schoolwork on Tday, and that we can just spend the day together; I am really looking forward to that!
A few years ago I tried to make a pumpkin pie from a real pumpkin (some of our friends will remember the chunky pie), but this year, I didn't just "try" to make it, I DID make it and it was great!!!! It tastes so yummy. A totally different taste than the canned stuff. Heres a pic:

Isn't it beautiful?!!!!!
