Wow - that week went quick!

Well, Thanksgiving week is over and real life has begun again. Maybe we can get something done this week.

But I'll still miss my babies - we had a fun time. Anna was taking several steps at a time, Neidon has become quite a story-teller, Kardia is a real talker too and Kaireia is becoming quite the young girl - each personality is so different.

Have a great week - be safe and warm!

I'm back!!

We had a great thanksgiving - lots of great food and family. Now to loose the weight!

Here are a couple or red-headed gals for you to enjoy. Have a great day.

Company coming!!

This is my only post this week - the office is about to become a bedroom as the family rolls in - over the river and through the woods sort of thing.

Anna is taking after her father in at least one area of her life. I can recall many a time where Reed went to sleep in this very position.

Thank you God for our memories that recall past events of joy - will our memories carry into heaven? Will the sorrow be washed away? God - we trust you even with our thoughts.

Going to grandparents is fun!

Going to my grandparents was something I looked forward to - unlike other events.

I'm thankful for wonderful grandparents who loved me and spent a lot of time with me. That's the kind of grandparent I pray I am and continue to be. Thanks you God for my grandparents!

A sunny Saturday

Getting ready for family.

I'm thankful for my parents and Cindy's parents. They have always been such a blessing to us. Thank you Lord.

Kardia would be more comfortable on a grandpa's lap ...

My tub is empty

Well, the handful of people who use my bath-tub will be here next week. My tub is getting excited - it's been a boring year for it.

It's Friday - what a great week! I pray yours went well.

Riding with friends

Good morning! Pray for my folks as they fly off to Maui today. Pray for safety and health as they travel and enjoy a few weeks of sunshine.

A week until Thanksgiving - I'm thankful for my children and their spouses. God has truly blessed us here. I love them and the way their hearts are turned toward God. Thank you God.

5 days until Anna comes to visit

Another cold and rainy day. We did have the sun yesterday for about an hour between the rain and the real cold front. This ain't Texas weather!

Have a great day and be safe - I'm off to Nashville today to meet a church - pray for success.

More rain today

An inch of rain last night and more rain today - most of the fall leaves have been knocked down and it truly looks like winter.

Another great day - what's God got in store for us?

Monday, November 15, 2010

Good morning!

We're cooler this morning - rainy, cooler and fall is in the air. A bit foggier early - those mountains did look smoky.

Did you realize Thanksgiving is next week already? What are you thankful for?

I'm thankful for my 5 grand-children and for the 2 on the way. Thank you God!

Another week until company comes

This is from last Thanksgiving - hard to believe how quickly this year has flown by.

What am I thankful for? That my family is doing fine and that I had a new grand-baby this past year with two more coming next year.

My quiver is filling up. :-)

Psalm 127: 3 Behold,children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. 4 Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one’s youth. 5 Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them! He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate.

Another fine day

Well - no sight-seeing today. Looks like a final lawn mowing and some errands. Also working on a client remodel and need to complete some drawings I was working on last night and plot out for them.

As always - God is good!

You didn't get any sleep? Wonder why?

Anna is going to have great slumber parties with her cousins some day - woohoo - can't wait!

It's Friday - a last few meetings and then bring on the weekend.

A busy week left

There's lots to do before this week is over - let's get cracking!

Beautiful weather here - cool (okay cold) evenings and warm days close to 70 degrees. A pretty time of year.

Have a blessed day!

Anna is excited

They just told Anna she is coming for Thanksgiving and she is super-excited. She's going to have to be patient - it is still a few weeks away.

I'm off to Knoxville this morning - you all be safe today!

Tuesday once more

I like Tuesdays. Monday is behind me, I'm not too close to Friday to have the usual dead-lines, nothing is set up for the evening - overall a great day.

I'm off to Rockwood today and then back through Crossville to visit with another prospect.

You all have a great day.

Baby, it's cold outside!

Good morning on this fine Monday! A chilly day so far here, but highs to push 70 all week.

Can you believe how close we are to the Holidays? This year has just flown by.

Take time to enjoy this week - thanks God!

Sunday, November 07, 2010

Are you up yet? You all had an extra hour!

Get out of them thar pj's and get yourself dressed - church is right around the corner.

Of course, if you were this cute in your jammies, I might not complain. That Kardia is a real keeper!

Have a wonderful Sunday - God is good.

Neidon won't be the only Kleeman with an 'N' name

Good morning - it was downright cold this morning and it's not much better even now! Rumor has it we're back in the low 70's next week - come on, won't fall hang around even a little bit!

Love you all - have a wonderful weekend!

Friday, November 05, 2010


Wow - where in the world did this week go to? It just flew by me. I hope yours went well.

Isn't Kaireia growing up? She's such a pretty girl - I love those missing teeth.

I'd love to spend the day playing with her.

The newest Kleeman will be surprised

The next Kleeman kid better be a nut - the others sure are! Little does she know what a group she is getting into!!

We received news of the newest family member's name last night - we won't give it out yet in case Rachel and Darin want to do the honors.

Nasty weather here - slight chance of flurries before the end of the week.

Summer dreams

Well, the cold weather has been great - I'm ready for summer again.

Oh well, at least we can remember how much fun it was.

Have a wonderful day - somehow, I feel a bit redder today. The guy in the office next to me is now a state rep!

A year ago

Rachel did recently send back updated pictures with Cindy - maybe I should load them and post a few - interesting thought, huh?

In the meantime, enjoy this 'golden oldie'. Kardia appears to be steering.

Crossville Treehouse

We visited this 'treehouse' several weeks ago - about 30 miles away in Crossville. Interesting.
