A big thankyou goes out to our navel orange tree this year. It went above and beyond to provide us with the best oranges! Ken and I picked it clean and ended up with about 6 grocery sacks full and that was after we thought oh there are only a few left on there! ha! They hide! They were so good this year, very juicey and sweet. We usually start picking right around christmas so good heavens we've been picking for 3 months and still had so many left. We seemed to have a ton of them this year. We shared many, our company that came to the family reunion enjoyed getting to pick their own citrus to take home. I think it was a great "orange" kind of year. So now the tree can rest and be busy making all those little oranges on there into another wonderful crop! The refrigerator is full so they should keep quite a while! I love having mature trees out in the yard and being able to run pick a few every day to eat for lunch at work.

I got the best phone call at work yesterday. Jeremy's deployment was cancelled! YEA! Long story but his bags were packed and due to deploy to the middle east and now HE'S NOT GOING! You cannot imagine how good that feels. Jamie will not be alone, He will be here to enjoy Noah learning to walk and talk and enjoy his first birthday! They were so prepped with everything ready and done! So put those gas masks and flak vests back in the attic! I keep pinching myself and texting him to make sure it's for real and they aren't changing their mind! Isn't it amazing!!!!!

Our Sunday was enjoyed by all, even in the cold rain! We finally got our first winter storm of the season overnight so our lunch planned for the patio by the lake at Macayo's ended up inside. But you can see we didn't really mind! Here are Jen, Alissa and Alan...
Margarita's! Jen tried a jalapeno one...brave girl!

Our pool has gotten some TLC this month with new filter parts and today new skimmer baskets and now this guy with his big grin and shades....I guess he's ready for the Arizona sun!

We got hew hinge clasps at ETC this week to make our kits for our night Sew and Go Again class on wed. We got some new colors that we haven't had so it'll be fun. It's so fun when things like this come in, it's like Christmas, getting to open them all up and "see what we got"! These come from China and sometimes seem to be on the "slow boat" so we never know when they'll come and what colors we'll really get ! Then we get to go out in the store and see what kind of fun fabrics to put with each one.....ahhhhh!Wed. night class will be fun!

Here are a few candid photo's from the 60th Anniversary party that we held during the family reunion to honor my parents. What a year for them, both turned 80 and celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary!
Here are the pretty flowers for the table, we left them in the church for the next day for all to enjoy and the lilies waited to get to my parents home the next day to open up!
