Sisters...

My sisters came from Illinois to visit for a few days this week.  It is harder to get together since Mom & Dad are gone but my sister Lynn (L) is the glue that binds us together.  She always makes an effort to schedule time in every few months so that we connect.  She is a pastor's wife, nurse, mother...very busy lady, yet so thoughtful!  She was driving back home today, dropping Becca (R) off in Danville (home of Jerry & Dick Van Dyke) and driving on to Iowa to see her grandaughter in her first violin recital!  She amazes me!
They drive with a Tom-Tom (GPS) that has a hilarious voice...it whispers to you!  They found all kinds of short-cuts through the countryside that even led them to just a cornfield.

 The weather was our Indian summer,...driving home from an afternoon outting Saturday the car thermometer said  79*!  We didn't really do special things but just being together talking, remembering old family stories was so good for all of us.
We did go to see "Unstoppable" the new Denzel Washington movie which was great!  If you get a chance to go, you'll sit on the edge of your seat and bite your nails like we did!!

And speaking of sisters...here are a few cuter pics of the younger set.
This is my grandaughter, Bailey &....

here is Emma!

The sisterhood bond starts young and just makes you smile sometimes. Since it is November, I am thankfullly remembering to be grateful for sisters...of all ages.

-the best part is always having a buddy to hug!!!

Looks like everything went well...looking forward to the stories when I see 'ya! I'm glad the weather cooperated too. (79? really?) Bailey and Emma are beautiful as always! I would love to spend more time with my Sis, but I am glad for our strong bond and how much we enjoy being together.
