A Visit To The 'Show Me State' . . .

We made a day trip to Missouri on Sunday to visit my sister, Susan, & her husband, Mike. They live a few miles from Kansas City. It was the perfect day for a drive, we left very early & returned home after 10:00 PM.

They recently built this beautiful home.
I adore that little round window.

Here's a shot of Susan & Mike on their bicycle built for two.
Today is their 26th wedding anniversary.
Happy anniversary guys!!!

This piano was in the church Susan & I grew up in.
It brings back many sweet memories.
They bought it when the church purchased a new piano.

Bobby & Kari loved the house.
Here they are enjoying a little ping pong action in the basement.

I've got to get busy today putting away the Christmas bling.

Yesterday I spent the day resting & taking cold medicine.

Time to get with it!!!!!!!!!

That's a beautiful home and it sure looks like they enjoy life there. What a cool bike to have. I hope your cold is starting to go away by now.

Colds this time of the year are the pits. Thanks for taking us on your trip so we could meet your sister and her husband and happy 25 years to them.

Glad you got to go visit Susan and Mike. Looks like they are enjoying where they live now.
Hope your cold is better. Stay warm and don't over do yourself!
Love you

Hi Carol...your sister & B-I-L have a gorgeous home! I have one of those nasty colds too & haven't felt like un-decorating yet either.
Take care, ;-) Bo

What a beautiful home.
That's really special that your sister was able to get the piano.
Precious memories!

I am so glad I got in the mood on Sun. to take all of the Christmas decorations down. I was lazy yesterday and today I'm not doing much better.

Can you believe how nice the weather has been. I saw on the weather last night that it was 70 in Ada. Crazy...no wonder we all have colds. One day it's 35 the next it's 70!

Have a good, prosperous day!
