What a GREAT weekend

WOW!! What a great weekend. We got back from our wonderful visit with my parents today and I miss them already. My parents live about 2 1/2 hours away which isn't too far, but we don't get to see them too much since we are on a rather tight budget and gas is rather expensive. We have cut ALOT of corners since I quit my job to stay home with Cameron and extra traveling when the gas prices are so high is not something that we can do alot of. I wish that the gas prices would keep going down, but with the elections around the corner I have a feeling that they might go back up. Can we ever get a little break with the gas prices? Ok, that is another subject for another day. Anyway, we jam packed alot of fun into our weekend that we spent with my parents. We got there rather early on Saturday and we sat down to visit with my parents and then we left to go to Amish Country which is only about 30 minutes from my Mom and Dad's home. We ate at our favorite restaurant which is called Rebecca's and then we left there to walk through the antique malls and of course we stopped by Country Gatherings. My Mom and I love Country Gatherings and it was so much fun seeing all of their Christmas decorations out. I wasn't sure I was going to be too into seeing all of the Christmas decorations already, but it was fun once we started looking at everything and we even bought a few things for Christmas time. So, when Thanksgiving is over, I am ready to start decorating and I can hardly wait!! After we left Amish Country we headed home for a DELICIOUS meal prepared by my Mom...... oh, it was soooo tasty!! Another thing that I wanted to share is that my Mom allowed me to bring her Mom & Dad's desk home. This desk was always in my Grandma and Grandpa's front room, they would sit at it every single evening and call my Mom or my Mom would call them and they would have their evening talk. It was something I use to sit at as a little girl and color or draw when I would visit them and now it is something that belongs to me. I am pretty excited that my Mom allowed me to have it and since I am such a sentimental person, you can imagine how much it means to me to have it. It really brings back alot of memories for me and seeing as though my computer is on the desk, it is something that I will use everyday and proudly think of my grandparents.

Well, here are some pictures that I took this weekend and I thought that I would share them with you. I also included a picture of my grandparents desk with my computer on it. Yep, it looks great and it fits in perfectly right here in my family room.
Be sure to check out some BEAUTIFUL pics that I took of God's beauty on my other website. Here is the link..... http://www.lisasohioflowers.blogspot.com
