Part 1- Huge Blogger Catch up!!!!

I've been so terrible about blogging the last part of the summer and fall.  So, better late than never!  We have had some great experiences that deserved to be recognized. I'm such a chronological person and I really wanted to blog in order, but it just didn't happen.  So, here goes part 1:

May 31st we attended a field trip to a cow farm with our local agricultural extension office.  It was super hot, but we learned a lot and enjoyed seeing our friends the Kuhns as well.  The farmers were terrific and were so knowledgeable.

Look who took turns cutting the grass all summer!  (actually what I meant is look who fights every week over whose turn it is!!)

Thanks Kayla & Kylie! Y'all did a great job!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Everyone!!

The first picture is our Christmas Eve dinner and the second shows the Nativity we built. Also, we hope you enjoy the video of the girls singing at church Christmas morning. Gary helped accompany them on the keyboard for the first time! We enjoyed reflecting on the purpose of the season this week. We were blessed to share a time of food, fellowship, and caroling with lots of brothers and sisters in Christ. That was a blessing as always. Time spent with our families has been great and we head to VA this morning to see our nephew for the 1st time! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from the Goodfellows!

Thanksgiving 2011

Mema loves the lights at "Meadow" so we decided to take her on a date to see them and eat at Cracker Barrel. We had a blast and so did she! She told the girls funny stories of her childhood and a story about my brother that I will, for many reasons, not type on this blog!! haha :-) My girls and us were laughing hysterically by the time we got home!!






The Last Supper

The girls convince Uncle Ricky to let them ride him on Uncle Keith's Ranger!!!  Look out!

He said, "Never Again!"

Uncle Ricky proves to Kristen he knows how to braid!


Uncle Timmy picking on Kristen!
The girls have always loved to build things out of scrap materials.  That started when we would let them help with hammer, nails, boards, etc when we were building our house.  This month they have been perfecting a grill!!  They used mud mortar and chicken wire for the grill!  It was so awesome!  They were begging to light it so after Thanksgiving we had a fire and grilled left over turkey. Yum Yum. 



They decorated outside for our Thanksgiving time.  So cute, but hard to see in the dark!  They almost decapitated their mother!

We are so thankful for the blessings God has bestowed upon our family.  We are so very blessed.
