Sweet Treat for the Week

Jode's mom and step dad came in last week and will be with us for the most of this week. 
They came to see our house and to just spend some time...it's been wonderful...it always is. 
My Mother in Law is such an encouragement to our family_always has been.
She usually raves about whatever I'm making_ decorating_ etc. and I respect her opinion so much.

It's been a time of relaxing_ eating good food_ (FIL can cook up a mean hamburger) 
and catching up on some good lovin'.
We went downtown the other day to show them the area and I was a happy girl because I got to take some pictures of everyone.
I have very few pics of my Mother in Law and none of just her and I together.

It started out good. But...

it usually ends up like this. Those 2 play around with each other like their the same age.

We had some friends over on Sunday to eat some of those mean hamburgers FIL cooks. 
They said they really thought me & MIL favored. More so than hubs and her... I say... I will take that compliment any day.

This was their attempt at jumping... I think the girls were the only ones that made it off the ground.

Anyhoo, I've kinda been MIA round' here lately so I just wanted to give a quick update as to what's been happening in our world. Still just getting adjusted to everything. But having family here with us this week has been a sweet treat. And I like anything "sweet". :)

Linking up today with Jami for

Heather :)


  1. So fun! Don't you love having great in-law's, I am so lucky in that department as well, I got 2 more sisters and a great MIL and FIL. Miss you around here but enjoy your family while they are in town.

  2. That is such a great pic of the two of you. I am glad you had such a great visit!

  3. Awww! LOVE that you have such a great relationship with your in-laws, that seems SO RARE these days!!

  4. Ummm OK, this choked me up. I miss all of yall so much....and is Ms D a blonde? So beautiful...radiating from the inside out!

  5. I was just thinking about you last night and was going to check on you today! I know yall have been super busy with the move and I am glad to know everything is going good!! I love that you have a strong relationship with your mother-in-law, I really admire that. My husband does not have a relationship with his mother (only step mother and still not a great one) and his father has passed away. I do however have a great relationship with my own parents and my sister's in laws which is fun!

  6. I want that relationship with my MIL so badly! You are so blessed!

  7. So glad to see y'all are having a great time. Don't you just love taking visitors to downtown? It's one of my favorite parts of living here. Enjoy the rest of your week and give me a call when you can get together. Oh and thanks for stopping by my blog today :)

  8. what fun. visits from family are the best! glad you are doing well!

  9. aw looks like you all had fun ... and wow do you and your mother-in-law really resemble one another ... both of you are such beauties!

  10. wow. first of all, y'all are beautiful and JOY filled.
    also, you are BLESSED with such wonderful inlaws. praise jesus!!
    i would tell you how blessed, by comparing your inlaws to mine...but that wouldn't help anyone:)

  11. I feel the same way about my MIL that you do: very blessed! Loved the pictures;)

  12. Love the pics and so glad you are getting to spend time with them.

  13. Love the pics and I'm so glad that your family's visit has been a good one!! :) And you are so blessed to have such an amazing MIL! xo

  14. How wonderful that you & your MIL have such a great relationship. I have to say, you all really do favor!

  15. What great pics and a great treat for your family. My kids just adore having grandparents around, I think it is so cool to watch them together.
